Nice to have a GM whose a hockey nerd too...

http://www.faceoff.com/sports/hockey/vancouver-canucks/benning+remake+canucks+uncluttered+picture/10158316/story.html

The last occupant, former GM Mike Gillis, had a big photo of himself and a trophy fish. Brian Burke proudly displayed a portrait from his minor-league playing days: Burke bloodied but stoic. (He was injured in the warm-up).

Benning could show off a photo, too — for instance, holding the Stanley Cup he won three years ago.

“I just cleaned my office up,” Benning said Thursday. “I usually have these sheets spread out all over the office. I like to keep wall space available.”

Benning is an active thinker. He writes down ideas, makes lists, charts. He has a hand-written roster of his team, with age, salaries and contract status noted by the players’ names. Another poster-size sheet displays the traits he believes a Canuck should possess. But Benning’s masterpiece is a positional depth chart that includes every team in the National Hockey League, penned by Benning on feltboard and arranged by team rank. It contains the colour-coded names of more than 700 NHL players and occupies most of the south wall of Benning’s office at Rogers Arena.

It’s like what Michelangelo might have created for the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel were he a hockey nerd and not a Renaissance genius.

“This is my work space,” Benning explained. “I need to know every player in the league.

Benning says #Canucks bringing in winger JT Wyman on personal tryout contract. He's a right winger with 44 games of NHL experience.


A 28 years old, 6'2" 209 lbs right winger, played 44 NHL games with 2 goals and 9 assists. Hmm... Comet?

More NHL experience and goals than the guy we have slotted into our 3rd line center. :|

JT Wyman is 28 and scored 18 goals 4 seasons ago in the 80 AHL games. That is the highest output in his hockey career. In 387 AHL games, Wyman scored 67 goals and 90 assists, 0.41 ppg.

Vey is only 23 and had success in the AHL. In his first AHL season, Vey scored 19 goals in 74 games. In 191 AHL games, he scored 55 goals and put up 103 assists. That is 0.83 ppg, pretty impressive for a kid who just turned 23 two months ago.

Benning said the fact so many younger players can't make camp, ie in college or injured, he may bring in 1-2 on PTO contracts to increase camp size. I think initially that's all it is but ya, Comet fodder if he makes it.

Wouldn't our 3rd line Center slot be taken already by Richardson or Mathais??

From 2nd line to 4th line, the centre spots are up for grab between Bonino, Vey, Matthias, Richardson, Gaunce and Horvat. Bonino should centre the 2nd line. Both Matthias and Vey will challenge for the third line and one will play wing. Gaunce, most likely will start with the Comets. Richardson is more suitable to be the 4th line centre. If Horvat makes the team, Hansen or Matthias will most likely be moved to make room.

Sedin Sedin Vrbata
Burrows Bonino Kassian
Higgins Vey/Matthias/Horvat Hansen/Vey/Matthias
Matthias? Richardson Dorsett
Sestito
