For a pick, Jimmy.

Get it right.

Well, time's up, did Benning get a Benn trade done before the deadline or did he run out of time?

Should have done the same with Jake two years ago.
Well said.

On Virtanen vs Gaudette I'll say this though.....

When Jake actually plays to potential he's very noticeable and has a big impact on the game. Gaudette at full flight barely moves the needle in terms of game impact other than filling a spot on the ice and eating some minutes. On player is the type you hope can get it together and you stay patient with for a longer period of time, the other you don't wait on to the same extent. Jake's time has probably run out though too, he's on his 3rd contract at this point. It's basically now or never, and frankly even if Tuna blows our doors off in the Canucks return to play I think it's too little too late, because he could have been a difference maker earlier in the year.

Bowie is the Defensemen they needed to not expose Myers in the expansion draft. They can expose Bowie instead now. He won't be taken, but the dropping down one round in the draft is a cheap price to fill that expansion draft need. He probably never sees the Canucks unless there are a lot of injuries next year.
We are all Jim Benning.

Gaudette, a center with a career faceoff percentage of 41.1 and Corsi and Fenwick percentages well below 50.

--

Blackhawks coach Colliton on Highmore:
Colliton on Highmore's departure: "One thing you appreciate about Highmore is his work ethic and attention to detail.

It's hard to find a bigger team guy with his willingness to do the right thing for the team at all times...

Hopefully he can use this to get a new opportunity."
Good share, thanks SKYO.

I also saw Toby Flenderson Kris Versteeg say that he played with Highmore and that he spoke highly of him, albeit as a role player I suppose.

I get that they're trying to dump Gaudette's contract, but I don't think Highmore has a future in the lineup.
The only pro scouting success that Elmer has seemed to have has been in bottom-6 surprises. Let's hope that's what we're getting here because he is batting a 1 for Umpteen Hundred in top-6 talent (Miller).

Sam Bennett has to be the happiest cat (<-- see wot) in the NHL today.

Traded out from the dwindling suckage that is the Calgary Flames in pandemic lockdown prairie blah Alborta to the rising playoff bound Panthers in sunny "we're open for business" Florida (oh and no state tax either btw).....

Good deal for Sam.
