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

For the record I was never one to get too involved in picking favorites before the draft and/or criticizing picks after. Except perhaps the Joulevi pick only because at the time everything leading up to that draft had a clear consensus of a top 5 tier that most lists didn't have Joulevi on, so to m...

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

Benning gets a passing grade on his draft record. On asset management and contract negotiations he gets a fail from me. Too many draft picks traded away, too many expensive fringe players. For the canucks to get to "contender" status we need Benning to excel now at asset management. He will need sk...

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

Can't help but remember Botch's cries of "we need an army". He cited the Jets as an example of having an army and expressed angst and envy at how far we were from getting to that point. I totally echoed those emotions and couldn't have agreed more. That seemed like a long time ago but it really wasn...

Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

But what if this was the one week in his life that everything just came together, and he’ll return to the 3.08 GAA and the .905 svs% of the regular season? This is what you say about a goalie in their late 20's and have already played a bunch of seasons. Demko being a 24 yo with only one season as ...

Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

Then the Demigod stepped up against Vegas when needed. Three amazing games by him. But is he ready to do that for a full season? As we know with Marky it takes a long time for goalies to develop. Seems like we've been developing Demko for eternity, yet he's only just beginning at the tender age of ...

Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

I would have liked to keep the Honey Badger a couple years longer, instead of... Loui Eriksson? Honey Badger's career was already going downhill before we let him go. He would've made zero impact in the line up had we kept him, much like he had zero impact for the Sharks when they quickly found tha...

Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

Benning got rid of the 2011-12 team, except for Horvat, Tanev, Edler. So... we should've kept Kesler, Burrows, Bieksa, Hamhuis, Hansen, etc..?? He's had about 6 years to rebuild, so what the heck is going on? Pettersson, Hughes, Boeser, Miller, Demko is what's going on. The overpaid bottom six is r...

Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

I wasn't a huge fan of Fantenberg in the reg season but I don't think you can ask for anything more from a sixth d-man, he was more than fine (that's not to say I want him back). The 3+ million dollar bottom six guys on the other hand... if anybody wants to know why we couldn't compete don't need to...

Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

Even though I didn't realistically expect us to pull it off against VGK (knew they were THE worst matchup for us in the league), all I wanted was to see that team sweat a little before they took the series and they clearly sweat a LOT. My only regret is I wish the sweat was more a result of even pla...

Reaves for Motte is not a fair tradeoff.

Got no gas left. Maybe a good thing because we're playing with fire again.

I don’t know if I can watch this.

Relax, it's just another game. Almost didn't have any hockey at all so look at it as just another bonus game to watch.

My other advice is get drunk, dulls the pain if we lose and enhances the party if we win.
