Re: LOL

So for all intents and purposes, twas Bones straight up for Sutts Even if that was the trade (it wasn’t), we had to sign Sutter immidiately after acquiring him (to a poor contract). Why not just trade Bonino at the TDD for younger assets/picks? He was a productive 2C on a sweetheart deal. Given Ben...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

the rebuild that they were attempting, one that tries to remain competitive and has roster players who are vets that can help show kids what it takes to play in the NHL and are still of an age that they might be useful pieces when the team is winning again. And this, this "re-tool on the fly" conce...

Clearing out the garbage isn't always pretty, but the garbage had to go.
Many of those early moves can be classified as “garbage out, garbage in”. The rebuild on the fly didn’t work.

I wouldn’t even do Goldobin straight up for Puljujarvi
:lol: k
Let me save you many years of a painful, agonizing wait for this Puljujarvi that you envision to arrive but won’t - close the book, the story is over
Maybe, but we know what Goldobin is. Easily worth the risk, IMO.

What endears you to Jesse “the Finnish Hillbilly” Puljujarvi?

What exactly are you seeing in him that the rest of the world isn’t?
Potential.

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Canucks acquire Ryan Spooner from EDM for Sam Gagne JIm Benning is great at drafting !! Right now, I'd like to see a little less moving pricey scrubs around and something that would help the team long term. Nobody is giving up a draft pick for Sam Gagner. It's one overpriced veteran for another ove...

Fairly equal cap hits (Canucks save $50K).

Low Risk move, and probably gets Jimbo some credit for getting Gagner back to the show (he may dress tonight for Edmonton).

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

Republicans should be very careful here. A future Democratic president could proclaim firearm violence and climate change as national emergencies.

Re: GDT: Sharks @ Canucks Feb 11/19 7:00 pm SN

Demko and Markstrom went down really close together, chronologically. That cant be predicted but the precarious situation in net was not unknown. Benning was waiting for Philly. If Philly put McKenna on waivers last week all would be well in the world. Benning refused to give Philly a pick. That si...

Re: GDT: Sharks @ Canucks Feb 11/19 7:00 pm SN

There was no other option last night, and all the planning in the world isn’t going to make a difference when your regular backup is out and your starter comes in the morning if a game with lower body issues. You’re making a mountain out of a molehill trying to assign blame where there’s none to be...

If Markstrom and or Demko are more than day to day it will cost Benning an asset to get a back up starter.
Fixed. At this point, a late pick is probably worth it to keep DiPietro from getting demolished mentally. He is clearly not ready and this defence is not capable of sheltering him.
