Bennett’s last 3 seasons

2018-19 - 13 goals 14 assists
2017-18 - 11 goals 15 assists
2016-17 - 13 goals 13 assists

You’d give a 2nd for those numbers from Ginger-stache?

I do admit, I’d take Bennett over Nylander and Ehlers as well

But puking up a 2nd plus for Sutter and Gudbranson made total sense

Sutter is a much better player. But it wasn’t puking up a second in that deal you know that, you’re just being a dipshit.

No he isn’t


Sutter had a 3rd round pick attached to him just so the Penguins could move his bloated salary. They took back an equal and much cheaper player in Bonino. Elmer inexplicably coughed up a 2nd rounder and Clendenning. He got fucked hard and dry.

Funny; I'd take Nylander or Ehlers over Bennet. however, I'd take center Bennet over either
if it meant repairing our foundation. But wait! Nylander can play center as well, if needed.
There, done: Sutter to the Leaves for Nylander.
That was easy. Poooooof

Nylander and Ehlers are soft perimeter players, who contribute as little to nothing in the mean something season reliant on Generational linemates who are causing cap problems for their respective cap crunched teams due to the erroneous amounts of money the receive compared to the zero to nothing they provide

Ehlers and Nylander are moveable on their own and will return assets if/when they are are moved. They are not causing their teams cap problems. Sutter would need a high pick attached to him to move his awful contract unless the Canucks want to retain a good chunk of money.

Virtanen hasn’t played an NHL playoff game. There’s been nothing in his previous seasons at this level to suggest that he will be some sort of playoff beast. He looked rancid in the AHL playoffs a few years back.

Dude would lose his shart if Elmer offer sheeted Bennett
You’d be happy as shart if Jimbro sheeted Bennett terrible stache
I’d rather roll the dice on a 2nd for him (among other assets) than Sutter, Gudbranson or Vey
Vey after the trade: 24 points in 75gp.

Bennett's last year: 27 points in 71gp.

So Blob wants to trade a second AND pay $4 mil for a 4th liner?

Yet he expects us to take his opinions on "asset management" and "cap management" seriously?

We're getting Bennett-like offensive production out of Beagle, plus far better PKing and he's cheaper.

Sorry blob, you'll have to find another way to piss away picks and mangle the salary cap.

Beagle was on pace for 18 points over an 82 game schedule. Bennett was on pace for 32 points over 82. At least do a bit of basic math before spewing your drivel. Bennett is 22 while Beaglet is 34. One guy is on the upswing and it isn’t Beagle. And where did I say to pay him 4 million? I just said it would be a better gamble than Linden Vey was. Then again you were a massive fan of Vey’s soft slow shitty play weren’t you?

Thanks for coming out.

Sutter is better than Bennett, he was one of the fancystat boys fan favourite two years ago, last year was injury riddled, he brings a lot more to a bottom 6 than Bennett does elite penalty killer, center, and great defensive player. Maybe if last year is the new norm I’d agree, but I want to see him play this year before I right him off completely as “waiver wire”.

Well it isn't Bennett. At least do some basic math before spewing your drivel. You know that Bennett has never matched his mediocre rookie production in 3 years, and hasn't cracked 30 points.
And where did I say to pay him 4 million?
You're talking about an offer sheet. A 2nd is the compensation on a $4 million-ish contract.
I just said it would be a better gamble than Linden Vey was. Then again you were a massive fan of Vey’s soft slow shitty play weren’t you?
Still can't get over Vey after all these years? I guess if it's the one mediocre move by Benning, you better keep bringing it up to support your narrative.

Vey was a minimal-value trade. Little was given up, little was received though Vey showed some reason to hope he'd hit his potential, he ultimately failed to deliver.

When the time came, he left the team after 2 years with no impact on the cap. He was a transitional piece on a team in transition. What you're talking about is offer sheeting a 4th liner, costing a pick, term, and cap space for years to come.

It's called the long game, ask UK about it :lol:

He likely clears waivers, same with Loui.
