Nice reading comprehension, I said he was your hero because he was hired in 2014Blob Mckenzie wrote: ↑Wed Apr 18, 2018 7:47 am“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.
... 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”
