Lmao Dude exposed once again. He has the same look in his eyes when his wife caught him on Freestyle Friday at the Dufferin.

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make here. That clip made it seem to me that those were Benning's choices.

The guy was the Canucks GM for a fucking month before the draft. Surely to Christ he was in charge of the draft list. Whaddya wanna bet if Virtanen scores 6 goals in 10 games to start the year, Dude is Listerening his teeth with Benning's jizz?

He runs the show he made the decisions good or bad for those that seem to think he had handcuffs on by another regime or people left over I give you Exhibit B your honour... Crawford Bowed up Lorne Henning is like DAFUCK IS WRONG WITH U look on his face Linden is looking like a Deer caught in Headlights Stan Smyl is thinking I have survived 6 regime changes and keep getting promotions but the GM stayed strong in his convictions...

OK, I get it now, and I agree with you. I just found the comment confusing.

But but...Benning only drafted Virtanen cuz Gillis hadn't cleaned out his desk yet...


110%

Benning didn't get a chance to strut his Genius'ness until the 2nd round. Gillman and the Gillis posse wanted nothing to do with the 2nd round and beyond


Since you want to attribute the pick to Gillis, and we know that you associate nothing good with him, does this mean that you have given up on Virtanen ?

Have I given up on Rodin? No. He's a Gillis pick. Its no secret Benning prefered Nylander but also didn't mind Virtanen, to a lesser extent. If the Gillis poison wasn't still lurking 2 months after Gillis was fired by Rogers Arena, Nylander would most likely be a Canuck. Gillman was seen in a video, while Gillis was still GM, drooling while talking about the possibilities of drafting Virtanen

Gilman, Henning and Crawford handed the reigns over to Benning after the 1st round.
