So yes, in 2013 the Blob was one of the many calling for a mini rebuild… and he was still doing so in 2014!


He originally called Lord Benning "his hero" (or words to that effect).
“Gutting it from tip to tail” is not a mini rebuild Mr Grimace

I hated Jim Benning as a player. I dislike him as a manager. I guess he is my hero. Sure, makes a ton of sense. :lol:
Nice reading comprehension, I said he was your hero because he was hired in 2014

... right at the time YOU were repeatedly calling for a mini-rebuild/rebuild-on-the-fly.

And Lord Benning stated right off the hop that your Vancouver Canucks were going to do exactly that.

That made him your hero...

As far as you saying “gutting it from tip to tail” in 2013, let's put that in context:


"Paddy I am of the opinion that you gut this team from tip to tail. Keenan style. Lots of good moving parts to trade for young up and comers to lead us through the next decade. Does Eye Bags have the chops ? I seriously doubt it. Bleed for two years and weed out all the old pricks that cost AV his job"


"two years" sounds like a mini-rebuild/rebuild-on-the-fly

... which fits with all the other things you were saying at the time.

(as per all the Blob quotes I posted at the top of page 217)

Hmmm... "trade for young up and comers"... but later you criticized him for exactly that!

"Trade them for picks!"... is what you started demanding round about 2016.

I called for a rebuild in 2012 tbqh:lol:

I wonder if The Grimace can do physical gymnastics at his age and girth. He is easily the most skilled mental gymnast on this board.

Blob, at this point you're like a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest. :mex:

Where did the Bruins find this Tuukka Task character?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Oh well they blew a lead in the 3rd only to beat a better team and the cup favourite convincingly the next game.
Didn’t you say they peaked too early?
Yes I did. 1 victory proves me wrong?

Poor Tuna

How's that defence Tuna?

Oh yeah, now you see why the Ducks got tired of Andersons playoff choking.

Regular Season Anderson they call him

Good luck fixing that D, Tuna. Back to the rebuild you go, LMAO

The first round ass kicking hurts we went through two in a row post 2011. The pure elation of making the playoffs quickly countered with the sad realization - we still suck. Do not confuse the regular season with what ya gotta do post season. Back to the drawing board, bye Bozak, bye JVR, hello shitty D, hello playoff choker Anderson

Whoops someone got excited too early.
And not seeing where it's back to the drawing board. Is Matthews/Marner/Nylander leaving? Bye Bye JVR and Bozak, Hello more minutes for Jonsson and Kapanen.
I stated on this very board 2 years ago I wanted nothing to do with an 8 year extension for JVR. Ridiculously one-dimensioanl.
