Sounds like Jimmy has Tyler "T-Bone" Myers all wrapped up...

Come on with the twiddle...whats it say
It's a guy doing a Jimbo impression but making him out to be some kind of putz.

I posted it because it's okay if I make fun of Jimmy because I love the guy.

But if someone like say Blobby were to make fun of him well.... :evil: :twisted: :evil:

Watch the clip when you're on the puter Dan, it's hella funny.
I have been following this guy for a year. He was quiet for about 6 months. Glad he is back.

Yuo see the Virtanen trade day? "Jakes a good kid, but Jimbro's gotta do what Jimbro's gotta do..." :D :lol:

No reason the Canucks and Tyler Myers won’t come to terms. Vancouver is considering structural options. It’s expected details will be worked out tonight or in the morning.

7:27 PM - 30 Jun 2019
Take your pills Mick, this one is real.

But yeah, it's Dreger, so...

I’m going to get shittered tonight. You could swap the Canucks pro scouting dept with a gaggle of Walmart greeters and you wouldn’t notice much difference.

They will make Razor Thin Myers among the highest paid D men in the game.

I don’t hate it - the term will be too long for Myers and it will be too much money, and I’d assume likely the same for Benn as well but we will know soon enough.

On another note, Jimbo whining about the salary cap not rising enough, the Spooner buyout and the Lu recapture being the reasons he can’t go after another top 6 forward is the most Jimbo thing ever. The contracts for Sutter, Loui, Beagle, Schaller and Baertschi are the reasons Jimbo, and every one of those are self inflicted.

Also forgot to mention, Benn is a LHD but prefers the right side. I assume this means trading Tanev may still be on the table.

Yeah let's go through this for the ten-thousandth time. :roll:

Those contracts are fine except for Loui and Schaller

... and the Schaller contract isn't exactly a killer.

($800K on the cap for him to play for the Comets as a callup, big whoop)

(and just one more season)

Loui's offensive game dried up, who knew.

Sutter has averaged close to 18 minutes per game in his 4 years here.

Baertschi has averaged 22 goals per 82 games since he got here.

Reportedly, three teams offered Beagle the same AAV

... so Jimmy had to add an extra year to swing it our way, and I'm glad he did.

But please, don't ever stop bitch, bitch, bitching...

Oh, and make sure to never give him credit for all the vastly underpaid ELC players he drafted.

Herr Diehard, vhen za time comes... no bandwagon seat for you!

NEXT!!! :evil: :twisted: :evil:

I lived in surrey on the lake when Myers was in junior and saw quite a few rockets games. He was an incredibly good skater for such a tall dude. Not very physical but that giant frame shielded pucks which was something.

He will improve our team for sure. The only issue is someone elses monopoly money and really...who gives a fuck.

Bring on stretch Myers

@frank_seravalli

Expectation is Tyler Myers and #Canucks are closing in on a 5-year, $30 million deal to be signed Monday - as @DarrenDreger reported earlier was in the works.

9:21 PM - 30 Jun 2019
Andy Strickland
@andystrickland

Hearing Tyler Myers will sign 5 years, $30 Million, $6 M AAV with Vancouver #Canucks

9:20 PM - 30 Jun 2019
Now that Blob has passed out drunk I can post this.

I think that's right around where most Benning haters said they'd be happy.

GREAT SIGNING LORD BENNING!!! :rockin:
