Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate!

Benning overpaid for Miller on the downside of his career, it's a waste to tie up $6 mil in a (supposedly) blue chip goalie if you are rebuilding during those 3 years. Miller is an average #1 goaltender on an average #1 goaltender salary: http://www.canuckscorner.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=251580#p...

Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate!

Exactly who did the Miller signing prevent us from signing? How would having his 6 million cap available have helped us over the last two years and this up coming season? Who exactly would you have as a number one while Markstrom is developing his NHL game? Just curious as to how Benning could have...

Re: Willy D death watch...

The coach got us overachieving last year. No way is he at fault this year. Keep him around another year at the very least. He's doing a good job with developing the young'ns. If we suck worse next year too then we get another top 5 and fire him. Probably right, I wasn't terribly impressed this year...

Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate!

5ga, good thing we got Miller one more season to help Markstrom, one more year should be good. And you think we will be a top 8 playoff contender next year?

I KNOW you're not new to this.
No of course we won't be getting the #1 pick (That's reserved for Edmonton :P )
But #2 or #3 would be nice

Re: Nucks.....Ducks......battle of...well not much. SN 7pm

Two months ago we wanted to get us a top five, then a month ago it was a top three. Then the first became imaginable. But hey, a top 3-5 is still ours for the taking. Would love to get Matthews but I'll settle for a top three. If I have to I'll settle for a top five. It was fun beating the Sharks t...

We better hope any teams interested in Vrbata aren't actually scouting Canucks games. I wouldn't trade a fifth rounder for this gutless piece of shit.

Re: Canucks News and Notes

My reading of emergency recall is that the conditions of regular recall do not apply, that is, no restriction of ten games or 30 days. It states that the player must be immediately returned once a healthy roster or 2 goalies, 6 Dmen and 12 forwards exists. If we have those conditions and Vey is not...
