Dude has an upper body like Chris Farley and legs like Edith Bunker. He tops that off with a Robert Pickton skullet

GM of the year? If there was such an award should Jimbro Benning be the runaway winner since most everyone, mostly Blob here, predicted the Canucks would be one of the worst teams in the league this year, post Sedin era? He’s got my vote

There is such an award:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NHL_Gener ... Year_Award

Given the past recipients, I wouldn't have thought it would have much credibility with you, but it will be interesting to see how Benning does this year.

How many GMs win this award with a .500 record?

Blob - your thoughts
Do you think 20th in the league is good?

The season over? Wild card race over? If the Canucks manage to make post season the first season without the Sedins I see no reason why Jimbro should not get consideration. Drafting the Swedish Gretzky - Pettersson when nobody wanted him to, I included, should be enough to get him the recommendation for GM of the decade! Elias Generational!

If every team below them in standings continued at their current winning %, Canucks drop to 24-25 in league.

Is that a good team?

Never seen a GM get an award for finishing 24th in a league.

That’s is some rose coloured glasses you have on, does it come in virtual reality mode or 3D mode? Maybe you should watch porn with it, might do you some good to let your left hand have a go....
