Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Benning/Linden's stated goal is to make the playoffs.

So Benning won't deal Hansen/Vrbata/Hamhuis unless we're out of the playoff picture, but that won't change as long as we're playing vets instead of kids.

It's a vicious circle.

Maybe another injury will help us snap out of it.

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Only in rainbow unicorn land will we get a 1st for Hamhuis. Vrbata won't net a 1st either. Maybe Hansen if we get really lucky.

Good John Scott piece. LOL at the NHL tactics trying to get him to not go to the All Star game. Their reverse psychology failed.
Great article - thanks for sharing it.
That was a a great read. A man of many talents for sure.

Re: Nashville @ Vancouver Canucks 7:00 PM PST FS-TN,S

Besides, if Benning is the drafting genius he's claimed to be around here, we're talking guaranteed superstar at fifth overall. We need another Benning franchise player like Virtanen, not another Gillis plug like Horvat. That's what I've been kicking around in my head lately. Where is the evidence ...

Re: Nashville @ Vancouver Canucks 7:00 PM PST FS-TN,S

The crucial question is, how many vets do you need to keep around to mentor the youth? Keep bringing in kids and at some point the balance tips over to the deadmonton model.

This may be a reason that guys like Hansen and Burrows (and maybe Hamhuis, but I hope not) are kept. The rest are expendable.

Let's see if Weber is worth more than Higgins. I'm guessing we'll get the same result.

Re: GDT: 21/01/16 Canucks @ Bruins 4:00pm SNP

I thought Virtanen had a great game. He still doesn't quite gell with his linemates on the cycle, but when he carries the puck you can see the potential. If he can start getting a step on the D and cutting infront or behind the net Bo-style he'll do some damage. His hit on Miller was not good for mu...

Re: OOTS Jan-Apr 2016

I carve Benning for a lot and rightfully so as he is doing a pretty mediocre job ( AT BEST) , but I can't blame him for wanting to rid the team of Zack. I was upset because we saw glimpses of what Kassian could be and heaven knows this team is small and riddled with pussies . It was the right move ...
