Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

I am beginning to think that a lot of the people aren't getting what Benning is doing because they think every move should be a final one. A lot of the moves he is going to make are temporary fill ins, future trade material etc. on his way to creating the core he wants. It is hard to make moves in t...

Re: TDD 2017

It has been nice to have a peek behind the scenes. This getting older sucks, but everything changes. It is still nice to hear your voice of reason. Your post about benning in the other thread is bang on. I can't believe how much people want to create drama where none is. I have said from the beginni...

Is this a hint that one of your sources was connected to Hansen or Burrows?

Re: TDD 2017

Great trade. I wonder where Dahlen would rate in this years draft, I am betting top ten.

I think Pedan is a waiver wire issue Benning made reference to checking out waiver rules with the league.

Pedan may have been sick as well, it sounds like the healthiest of the sick played.

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Torts told us all loud and clear the team was stale and needed changing. We all knew that. We clamoured for change. Good gawd we've seen nothing but change in the 2.5 years Benning has been here. It's a f**king rebuild no matter what Linden and Benning have been calling it. The process started befo...

Go back to straight reversed rankings for the second round.
I like that, of course that means we will never have a first overall because we will never have the luck.

Merry Christmas HW. My gift for you is a playoff run (not saying which year though, but I will remind you when it happens.)

Re: 2016-2017 Season – First Quarter Analysis - 21 Games

Patience is definitely the order of the day. The Canucks are better than their record shows. I am impressed that we have done as well as we have with the injuries we have. There is better depth than I thought. I still think we will make the playoffs and once there we may surprise. My rationale for t...

Re: GDT: Canucks host Hawks on CBC, SN

I think the team is starting to gel and the chemistry is coming together. I don't think we ever had it last year. There is still room for tinkering but regardless it is a developmental year and we should keep getting better as the year goes along.

Re: GDT: Canucks host Hawks on CBC, SN

I will be happy with a thirtieth over all draft position, the closer to to 30 the happier I will be. Life is too short to hope for a draft selection to turn into a super star.

Re: GDT: Canucks host Hawks on CBC, SN

Wow bandwagon jumpers galore. Lots of positives tonight. I see lots of things that have me believing they are getting ready for a run. They gave chicago way too much room in the third but they didn't quit. They took the play back after the second goal. Had they scored, it would have been a different...

I would like to see them move dorsett and keep skille in his place.
