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.
If he's playing the short and the long game then isn't he basically in the middle/ On the fence / half in - half out / just the tip ??
"Strategic drafting"... as opposed to? drafting alphabetically? Calling in your picks from the shitter with The Hockey News Draft edition?
"Sutter is a hockey player"... news to me. I thought he was a lawyer.
"It's like the guy has a plan and a strategy"... well I would hope so. Even his biggest detractors wouldn't claim he wakes up in the morning and spins the wheel of fortune.
Then again, if you've based your assessment on what Doc and Dude are spinning, of course you'd see the kernels of corn in Benning's shit as sparkling gold.
