Benning gets a pass by me for the OJ pick.

Having Boeser shine from the 23 hole more than makes up for it. Nevermind the petersson and hughes picks.

Drafting has been by far Bennings strongest attribute. Just hope the owners dont prematurely ejaculate him for someone flashier before he can add a few more gems
He gets a pass? It was a massive mistake actually. If there was a re draft Razor Thin Olaf would likely be a 2nd rounder.

I’m over the pick and agree Udell that drafting has been Bennings best attribute. Too bad he has made some putrid free agent signings and some bone headed trades. I wouldn’t gas him just yet either.

I like what I see of Hughes so far but he’s 157 pounds. I have yet to see a D man that tiny play in the NHL.
I was all pissed about it but life goes on and thw more recent picks have made me forget all about the finnish pipecleaner. I personally have never actually seen the kid show the kind of promise worthy of a top 5 pick but i also have never seen an NHL gm hit a homer on every at-bat.

Meh....hes won me over since so the page has been turnt.

As far as Hughes goes...this kid is a special talent. To me he looks strikingly similar to rats buddy JOHNNY_HOCKEY. He has unreal agililty and lateral moves. Hes the kind of talent that wont need to be thick much like JH and Petterssson for that matter.
I’m totally over the 2016 draft blunder.
:lol: which is why you keep bringing it up everyday since June of 2016. Oh yes, you’re cured alright

Other GMs throughout the league chuckled and shook their head at why Elmer pay such a massive price for an overpaid bottom pairing D man.

Tweener McCann and Asplund are special players. The trade is very regrettable indeed

Blob prefers what the Oilers got for Barzal and Beauvillier - Griffin Reinhart AHL’er

Hamonic, who just had the shit beat out of him by Gudbranson, who Blob considers him as a “stud D-man” has 2 goals 7 assists vs Gudbranson’s 2 goals 6 assists. The Flames gave up a 12th overall lottery pick (Dobson) in 2018 and a 2nd round pick in 2018 and a 2nd in 2019

Hamonic makes 3.9 million per until 2019-20. Gudbranson makes $4 million per until 2020-21

Blob loves Hamonic

More like 1:30 but he’s also on a fair bit better team with with better d men. Hamonic is also about four minutes more a game for their careers. Hamonic has been between 20-25 minutes per game EVERY year of his career. Dud has nudged over 20 minutes a game in two of 8 seasons.

Yes but Hamonic has never been the same since that lower-body injury in 2016-17.

His icetime dropped a few minutes per game at that point and has never recovered.

(Hamonic is 2 years older than Guddy)

But if you want to talk career numbers, I'll point out that

... not counting their rookie seasons...

The Guds has averaged 1:30 more minutes-per than Hamonic in the playoffs. :mex:
