Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate! (And personal insult thread)

My assessment of JB is this: 1) in the beginning when he came in he was instructed to do what it takes to make the team a SC contender again 2) LE signing had the Aquas written all over it (have been saying this for a few years) 3) Things changed and JB had more autonomy to sign who he wanted but th...

Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate! (And personal insult thread)

Well when they were a 100 point team in 2014 they sure as hell weren’t rebuilding now were they. True - I will give you that. There is a difference between when he actually started the rebuild and when he wanted to start and to be honest this team IMO never actually did a rebuild, it was a constant...

Lol, 8? This is such an intellectually dishonest media talking point, you can really tell who the idiot fanbase is when they talk about “hurr durr 8 years!!!!”. The rebuild didn’t start 8 years ago. lol - reading your posts yes we understand who the idiots are. So I assume then that you believe JB ...

Proof? Any links to him saying this?

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I keep telling you that Myers' contract was designed to be traded to a budget team when Horvat/Miller extensions are due. On July 2nd 2023 Myers will be due just $1M in real dollars. So there's $6M off the cap. Hamonic comes off at that point too... another $3M off the cap. Holtby and Virtanen buyo...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 21-22

In the days of negative media and creating content for clicks, I would like to point out your Vancouver Canucks have won 3 of their last 4 games. And 8 points out of a playoff spot. https://media.giphy.com/media/3otPoyudZ18xASX0rK/giphy.gif Stop it! Do not try and draw me back in, I can't be vested...

Re: GDT: Canucks host kings - Dec 6 - 7pm - SNP

Painfully obvious the problem was coaching. Not one player went out of their way to say they were sad at the firings. They all talked about fresh faces and new energy. To me that's telling. What I want to know is this. Didn't Benning say over the summer that the players loved Green and wanted him b...

I’m in the - Trade Horvat extend Miller club. Hand the C to Miller And then sign JT to a 5 - 7 year contract worth $7M - $8M+ and that takes him to 36/37? Unless JT and some Vancouver GM has a handshake in place you do not hamstrung this team once again with a poor contract when the team is not a l...

Jebus, one single change... Garland in for Miller on the first unit. Completely different animal.

Still too much over-passing and useless net presence, but honestly, night and day difference.
Pod is out there as well, standing high.

Re: Coaching Change? Yay or Nay.

I think Green is an OK coach, needs a break and probably a couple years as an assistant. He has zero in game changes, poorly planned game prep for his team, cannot motivate them, allows his assistants too much autonomy and I think he was trying to hard to be nice. Lastly his player selection left yo...
