Garrison is worth the 50th overall. Is Dorsett really worth the 85th?

Value seems a bit off but I don't mind bringing in Dorsett at all. Hopefully Hansen can get punted next.

Pretty exciting day for the Canucks, though!

Nice. Some real grit for the bottom 6.

Hope this means Hansen and Sestito are next...
Try to focus on THIS year...

Look for the team to make moves to acquire Jason Chimera and Vern Fiddler.

The greatest thing about today is reading the total s*** storm HF and CDC are swirling into to. Dorsett is a douchebag.

Why, when Nick Spaling, Mark Letestu, and Matt Calvert are out there?

Willie knows him well, he was a good shit disturber err industrious forechecker in the NYR Stanley Cup run.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Well, so far we aren't a better team going into next year, but it's gonna be fun to watch this new team grow and build out of the Sedin era.

The fact that we aren't a contender now, I wonder if the Sedins will want out.....

Come on guys, you have to admit this is pretty brutal so far. :lol: *

This guy is not worth a third-rounder when we just traded Weise for a 5th and Garrison for a 3rd.

We have shitloads of cap space and these kinds of players are easily available as UFAs.

Hopefully there's a master stroke imminent this afternoon, because so far the value Benning has gotten for these assets is fucking terrible.

If we were the Leaves we'd all be laughing our asses off at them right now.






*not asking you, Skyo; I know you will never be anything but thrilled by any move made by any Canucks GM for the rest of time

Well I didn't mean this year..... :scowl:

:P

But if I'm a newly hired GM, and the guy before me left me with a couple of boat anchors that are going to make things really ugly in a couple of years, then moves like this might just be enough to make the situation unpleasant for those anchors to the point where they'll be willing to leave halfway through.....

Not that this is the point of these moves, but Benning might just be saying, we rebuild, and that turning this team around in the long-run is more important than keeping the Sedins happy in the short-term.
