Jim Benning on JT Miller's impact, roster movement, and the state of coaching in the NHL
November 26 2019
Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning joined Andrew Walker and Satiar Shah to talk about the season for the Canucks so far, and the struggles of the last month. The Canucks GM also discusses the trade market and the nature of roster movement around the NHL. Benning also touches on the current state of affairs around the NHL when it comes to Bill Peters and Mike Babcock, and how that relates to his playing career.

https://www.sportsnet.ca/650/the-progra ... ching-nhl/

On hockey culture:

"When I played, Pat Quinn was the GM and one thing I learned was that he treated everyone with respect. I said to myself if I ever get to work in the league or GM someday, I’m going to make sure our organization treats our players with respect. We have tough decisions to make on players and those are tough conversations but I think from our standpoint, we always try to be honest with the players and treat them with the respect they deserve. Hockey culture has changed, when I played in the '80s coaches yelled, screamed and embarrassed players. Society changes, the expectations of what’s proper and what’s not, it relates to hockey too. I talk to Travis about this and he liked the coaches that were honest with him."

On injuries:

"Sutter is back skating, Beagle is close to playing, Roussel is going to do a conditioning stint in Utica and he’ll be back. Ferland has traveled to Pittsburgh and he has an appointment tomorrow, we think he’s going to get cleared. He can start practicing again."

On the trade market:

"Tough to make trades right now. There’s talk going on between GMs but not usually do you see a lot of trades this time of year. We’ll continue to have talks to find out where the marketplace is. We’ve got to look within for solutions to the problems we have. I'm in constant communication with all GMs and every team is looking for top-6 forwards and scoring. I’m excited to have a full roster back to see where we are with Roussel in lineup. I’d like to take time to assess when we have a full team playing and we’ll decide from there."

On goaltenders:

"Markstrom has not only been a good goaltender for us but he’s a really good person and a guy that we want around. A leader in the room and someone we want to have around going forward. When the time is right we’ll have the conversations but he’s a guy that all things being equal we’d like to sign him and continue to be our number one goalie and work with Thatcher. We don’t want to rush Thatcher and goaltending is a tough position – he’s a young player but we want to have two good goalies."

On Juolevi:

"I was down in Laval this weekend to watch Utica play two games and talked to the coaches down there. The reports from them is that Juolevi had been excellent for them. 22-25 minutes a night, PP and PK time. Was used as a match-up guy vs top players – they’ve been happy with his development. It’s disappointing that he’s not in the lineup now but he’s going to be evaluated in the next few days and hopefully, he’s back playing sooner rather than later."

Awaits Eriksson to hit waivers.
That would pad the ol' stats nicely. It will be Loui's first hit of the season.
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!

With luck we can trade a forward prospect or two to shore up D prospect pool. We'll need some help there as Woo is the only guy we have with some potential.

Big decisions on our D are coming up at the end of the year, it would be nice to see something in the pipeline.
I think Tyramkin comes back, and we spend a bunch of picks in the next couple of years on dmen. Possibly a Barry signing if he really wants to play in bc. Definitely need rathbone and woo to make it though.
I hear the one eyed Brogan Rafferty is playing well in Utica, he leads all Utica D-men with 12 pts (2g, 10a) and is a +8. He may have passed Juolevi on the depth chart and maybe one of the first call ups if our D gets banged up.

Nope

When your boi Benn let McCancer out muscle him that’s when we started to unravel.

We lost to our team defence. Forwards are sucking ass in that department.

The team does need Sutter and Beagle back. Horvat can’t handle the middle without them. Horvat and Gaudette don’t seem to be a good back to back combo down the middle, throw in Petey and we are pretty putrid down the middle defensively. With Beagle and Sutter down, Green should be putting Miller at centre 2nd or 3rd line centre he plays a fantastic 200’ game put Gaudette on the wing. Gaudette seemingly is a McCann tweener type centre.

Maybe, maybe not but that's not why we blew a three goal lead and lost.

They lost their legs a little in the third as well, there travel so far has been pretty shitty, still too bad for the guys although they’ll learn from it.

Pittsburgh is very beatable. Blob is out to lunch, we lost to ourselves last night, travel, immaturity the whole kit and kaboodle. Blobbee McGeough is a very angry man when he is not drinking. Short, stout and stubborn when the booze ain’t swimming down his gullet like a stormy river
