He played 3rd line minutes and produced as a third line player. He has a lot of upside and projects to be a hard nosed top 6 forward on a good contract. I can see why you would hate him. More fluffy non contact guys like Sutter and Eriksson I guess. Bennett is 21 drafted in 2014. How's Vancouvers pick doing from the same draft ? You know , the "power forward" with no power , looks like Kid Rock, hangs with Biebs, puts up 3rd line AHL numbers and gets demolished by 165 lb Booby Farnham? Bennett put up better numbers in a better league with less ice time and actually tuned up a couple guys while Virtanen had his gloves welded on and played like a kitten. I can see why you hate Bennett.

Ryan Ellis 4-6 months away from returning from off season knee surgery. Preds say he's too important to rush.

Let's trade them baby Subban now!! :mrgreen:

Bountiful Blob Blows Bennett.

(and Bingo)

I can remember when Blobby loved the Canucks and hated the Flames!

Sure it's reversed and he just trolls Canuck boards now... but trust me folks!

Hey, lots of bandwagon fans dump their teams during rebuilds...

Farnham is 165? I thought he was 190. :?

And someone got "demolished" in this fight?



Only a Canuck-hating troll would turn a Bennett discussion into a Virtanen discussion.

Canucks held the 6th overall pick in that draft, Bennett went 4th overall...

Interesting point. I've often wondered about this. Would someone with an interest in such things be willing to explain how hockey fights are scored ? I mean, beyond knockouts -- those I get.

Well that's....unsatisfying....but consistent with what I have observed. I had hoped for some underlying objective criteria, but I should have known better. Thanks for explaining, though.

Duration ! Means nobody cheated with a throw down. No jersey pull-overs and kept going to the point linemen
did not step in. Home fans cheer both combatants as they make their way bleeding to the box without nattering at each other.
Except, like you point out, a knockout. ;)

I meant regarding who won the fight, but this still sounds consistent with Doc's explanation, actually.

Blah blah blah lil guy. The Dud makes a point of shitting on a guy (Bennett) for whatever creepy reason and anoints him my favourite player like Tom Sestito and Ryan Clowe etc. The guy gets 3rd line minutes and money and far out performs the slug from Abby taken two picks later. The slug was a good pick ( by Elmer ) when he sorta looked like an NHL player. Once he crapped the sheets he became a Gillis/ Gillman pick. You a mod and an Elmer supporter have went oddly quiet on this matter.I mean he's your wingman for fuck sakes, support him like you do in every other thread that he takes a shit in. The Dud all the while piles on Reinhart, Bennett, Ekblad, Ritchie, Nylander, Ehlers, and earlier Draisitl. All garbage picks from the 2014 draft according to him. I have ZERO problem cramming this shit down his impetigo riddled pie hole.

Yah I know Reef. Out of that post he determined I'm a Flames fan somehow. I guess when he gets his ass handed to him on a regular basis it's all he's got.

Home many times have you registered at Bountiful?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
