Maybe I missed a post, but whom should the Canucks have left unprotected if not Sbisa? Choices are Edler and Guddy. Mmm, Edler v. Sbisa. Discuss!

And Benning got criticized for telegraphing his pick.
My point was that he might had had more takers to trade down if had started with a higher pick.

Telegraphing his pick may have hindered his trade down gambit, and so count against the genius argument, but as I said above, maybe genius drafting (If that's what the Canucks have had from Benning) trumps other management functions.

500. Wow. That's enough time on something I can't even influence, let alone control.

I'll try to be back when the "Benning is a hockey management genius" thesis is proven, or refuted. (It's only fair to the True Believers that i should show up to eat a big helping of crow pie after the Canucks' 2nd back-to-back Stanley Cup win in 2020.) I hope all you posters, especially the ones who contribute facts and solid entertainment, enjoy the process.

Edler had a NTC. It was between Tanev, Gudbranson or Sbisa.

Holy fuck this thread blew up HF styles...what's the summary on this.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

I think Blob suggested Sbisa should have been protected in the expansion draft because he is such a stalwart. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Bubbles lost his shit on Benning because

- traded Shinkaruk for Granlund
- traded a 2nd for Baertschi
- traded Lack for a 3rd and a 7th
- traded a 3rd for Dorsett
- traded a 2nd for Vey
- Dorsetts contract
- signed Sbisa to a 3 year $3.6 million per contract with no NTC
- traded Bonino, 2nd pick and Clendenning for Sutter and a 3rd (Lockwood)
- Sutters contract
- traded Mallet and a 3rd for Pedan (Pouliot)
- traded headcase (McCann) and a 2nd for Gudbranson
- Didn't trade Hamhius at the deadline
- Didn't trade Vrbata at the deadline
- drafted Juolevi instead of Tkachuk
- Erikssons contract

Looking at that list, I see some good, some bad, and some ugly. It's amazing you see genius.

Most of those have been beaten to death repeatedly, so no.

A pointless question would be of the unsolicited kind.

Seems like you are the solicitor here.
