most can’t handle a rebuild along with Topper
I wouldn’t say most but there are some for sure. Pretty much anyone who likes the Sutter trade, the Vey trade, the Gudbranson trade, the signing of Eriksson among others. These people definitely can’t handle a rebuild. They advocate for quick fixes and aren’t patient enough to wait for picks and prospects to develop.
I think the reason Benning is a genius is he’s playing the long game as well as the short one.
I’m mean the drafting has been strategic. All his picks have been with purpose including and especially the Juolevi pick which I still think was a smart move. I’m not gonna say tkatchuk wouldn’t have been a no brainer, but the long game says the Canucks team that wins the cup are going to need stud D man that juolevi projected to be.
As for the short term trades, the ones you mention, well while we are waiting for the draft picks to pan out we still gotta Ice a team and they had the Sedins to not embarrass. So I’m alright with those trades even if they did give up a second here and there. And I don’t care what anyone says Sutter is a hockey player. You need guys like that.
As far as I’m concerned Benning has shown great thought in his moves. It’s like the guy has a plan and a strategy and I’m enjoying watching albeit from a fuck of a long way away. I’m relying a lot on what’s said here amongst you guys and shitty hi light packages.
Btw is it me or have hockey hilight packages
gotten super shitty since sports net got all the tv rights?
Just goal replay after goal replay with no commentary on the ebb and flow of the game and heaven forbid they show a fight or nasty hit...
