Only in hindsight. A healthy Sutter would have limited the need to have Cracknell, Vey and Mccann take so many FOs
He may have even gotten us two points closer to a playoff spot .

Oh yeah ..... He's also tall so that shit makes the whole team stand a bit taller .

Blob, are these the sort of things you make up like your October forecast of Benning trading Horvat before Christmas......

Cary on making yourself look silly. You are very good at it.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

If Benning dealt Bo he would recoup the second he dealt for Vey.

Arbour wrote:From knowledgeable Utica watchers: Shinkaruk has the innate natural ability to get into the open and find the puck from a rebound or a pass as he arrives and can convert in those situations which is generally how he gets his points, however, his passing is not particularly good, nor is his ability to carry the puck, his defensive game needs work and he is easily pushed off the puck. He can disappear for whole periods, but will score if left open. Consensus from the above is that he is still a work in progress and will need more time in the AHL, since the deficiencies in his game at this time, in spite of his point production, would not translate well at the next level.

Green seems to have a handle on his players and I would be surprised if he didn't have input into this deal. While Benning has the final say he certainly didn't ignore Green's input when acquiring Baertschi. Granlund's AHL point production is somewhat similar to Shinkaruk's ie 25 goals and 21 assists in 52 games in 2013/14 as a 20 year old.
That sounds a lot like Brett Hull. I am not sure I like this trade.

There is a pretty decent chance that this trade will blow up in our faces down the road.

Or it could be looked back on as a meaningless swap between two fringe players.

Either way, Elmer is a wizard.

Didn't people say the same thing about Dane Fox when he scored 64 goals in 67 games?

And bear in mind that in today's NHL Hull would not have been nearly as effective.

OMG what a bunch of sheetshitters! One dude said he was literally crying as he typed his post. :lol: Several others have sworn off Canuck fandom for life and insist they are selling their imaginary season tickets. Many are vowing to burn any and all Canucks merchandise they own.

I mean wow it's just ridiculous, even for that place. The average poster over there must be a fourteen year old girl with an eating disorder. :roll:
Yeah, it's called "mass hysteria" or "collective obsessional behavior".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_hysteria

This particular outbreak in Canuckdom of late calls to mind the Cat Nuns of France

.... and the LeRoy outbreak of 2011–12.

I personally recommend the quarantine of certain sections of Canuckdom (including all of hf).

I also recommend we stand staunchly on guard here in our Corner, lest the infected gain a foothold.

Don't you see, we must make a stand together in the name of Sanity!!!!

He's no Blobster.

I get the feeling the only thing he hates more than the Canucks is his own mother.
