Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs. Round three

:lol: that's funny. 2x World Cup Gold, World Junior Gold, Olympic Gold. Art Ross, Hart Trophy. He's like the Sedins, but better. Exactly, pretty light on the team accomplishments. I don't know if you watched the Olympics where he got his gold medal, but he was the most useless player on that team. ...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs. Round three

To his credit, he's managed to shake the No-Show Joe title, but the reality remains that he had one of the best skillsets in NHL history and accomplished very little. :lol: that's funny. 2x World Cup Gold, World Junior Gold, Olympic Gold. Art Ross, Hart Trophy. He's like the Sedins, but better. He ...

Your thoughts on how injuries have affected the Canucks the last 2 seasons?
Minimally. Basically they highlighted our lack of depth, but even when healthy the team sucked. Blaming injuries for the results over the past couple years would be a very stupid thing to attempt.

Re: 2018-2019 Stanley Cup Finals

I’ll cheer for the Blues even though I’d have a fairly large smirk if Boston won. Describe the basis of this ...”smirk” you speak of I think because of the hate Brad Marchand gets in this market. I also think it might be both amusing and humbling if we had to hear 30 GMs congratulate the Bruins her...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs. Round three

Man does Thornton ever look old, emancipated, in that post game interview. I still hate him. But I respect the he shut down any injury talk as an excuse. Just shut it down. I still hate him. At some point you just need to acknowledge that injuries are a part of hockey, and just like you need a luck...

Re: 2019 offseason

The best championship teams move parts around their core, where Benning can now just start! After he did the hard work of living through the NMC/NTC vets / Sedins. Let Benning have his years to command around his new core he drafted (Elias Pettersson, Brock Boeser and Quinn Hughes, Horvat the last ...

Don Sweeney (Bruins), Don Waddell (Hurricanes) and Doug Armstrong (Blues)
nominated for GM of the year.

all made a lot of trades, some of them involving highly drafted players I might add.
Big difference is the players they got back were actually good.

Re: The Bubbles and Dud review every GM move thread

Well I think the point is that Benning has done a decent job keeping picks, even though he has trade a slew he has recovered a slew. Sure it could be better but it’s not as dire as some would suggest. Yes, the NHL gifted us a 2nd. Let’s not count that though. He’s remained around average when it co...

^ Interesting!

So years later one could say...I took a few minor liberties for clarity’s sake
:lol: you sure did!

Of all the players and assets listed, the organization came out with Sutter, Pearson and Lockwood. For a "rebuilding" team, that's awful.

Re: The Bubbles and Dud review every GM move thread

It’s like trading a rib eye and baked potatoe for a three day old tuna sandwich. You then moved the tuna sando for a Swanson frozen meal Yeah it's only the worst example of the declining returns Benning seems to muster.
