I'm with you on Forsling, I bet that is one that Benning would like to have back!!!
This team already has a guy named Stecher who is vertically challenge. Seriously, do you think they can afford to have two playing on the backend?

Or maybe if Gillis can actually draft a player... The Canucks might be in a pretty good shape right now.
Gillis has been gone for a few years now. Time to concentrate on the present
Unfortunately, the present should have his draft picks playing right now. Besides Horvat, Guance is the only one left.

How Bout Ehlers and Walt Jr... Decisions u went the other way on take out Jake add Ehlers and add Tkachuk instead of Oli would this team be better served to handle injuries can u imagine when Bo came back to have those two plus Boeser Plus Gaudette Plus ELias in the coming years instead we get to watch More 21,89,26,

lol more Gudbransons and less Forslings.... Gesus Christ

It’s called organizational depth. If nothing else they should have that by now. It’s just as bad as when Vey, Clendenning ,Weber and Bartkowski were the depth. At least Benning was left with Matthias, Kassian and Richardson for depth which he let go for nothing.

Shinkaruk - 23 years old
Niklas Jensen - 24 years old
Draft pick we traded for Buyout Ballard - 25 years old
Mallet (2nd round pick) - 25 years old
Schroeder - 27 years old
Hodgson - 27 years old
Rodin (2nd round pick) 27 years old
Sauve (2nd round pick) 27 years old


There's some of your missing depth, Bubbles. The team Benning took over was stalwart

We get it... the Gillis regime sucked at drafting. Why is it though when a question is asked about THIS REGIME and it’s inability to flesh out the FUCKING DEPTH on the roster AFTER FOUR FUCKING YEARS, that Eye Bags is brought up ? I guess as it’s my fault for trying to get retards to answer a question and provide a semi intelligent answer.

How do you flesh out the depth Blob? Speculative trading? Free agent signings? Reclamation projects?

When Gillis was hired to be your GM of your Canucks the ages of these existing Canuck players at the hiring were -

Salo - 33
Luongo - 28
Dank - 27
Hank - 27
Burrows - 26
Bieksa - 26
Kesler 23
Raymond - 22
Edler - 21
Schneider - 21
Hansen 21

Gillis left Benning an old done in team with know future due to his incredibly horrible drafting and developing skills. Thank Cripes Nonis drafted Schneider, otherwise no Horvat

I don’t know uk... how about re allocating the money pissed away on assholes like Sutter, Gagner and Eriksson which is 14 million annually for us the next three to five years (with trade protection) and spend it on actual useful players. Stop hemorrhaging picks and prospects for stop gaps like Clendenning, Vey and Gudbranson(who won’t be back). Don’t fuck around primo prospects like Tryamkin.... pick up scrubs on waivers , don’t pay assets for them.

Or why the fuck is Vic Dowd playing ? Fucking Green is as bad as Willie for burying the kids. Virtanen has been sandbagged on the 4th line despite being one of the teams better forwards for weeks.
Wow, that didn't take long.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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