If Benning could get a second for Goldobin, my jaw would break from hitting the floor. If he could get a late draft pick, I’d be surprised.
We are all Jim Benning.

Better get it done by or at the TD because trying to negotiate a new contract with that guy would be a nightmare.
I don't believe he has arbitration rights, thank Gawd, but still.

I think he may bring a little more than most think, if done this month. (insert glass half full smiley).

Not hard to negotiate a take it or leave it league minimum on a two way contract, is it?
He’ll be in the KHL next year.

But then we get nothing! Poor Hansen. Probably would have done better if he'd stayed.
Got to get something.

Twas a dirty hit. Happy it’s not a concussion or his shoulder again. No idea why the league doesn’t even look at that hit.

Is there anything the organization can do to address this problem? They got rid of players who got under the officials' skin. I thought the hiring of Jim "Good Ol' Boy" Benning and Trevor "You Owe Me One, Gary" Linden was intended partially to bring the Canucks into the insiders Club. What's left? Is there a tradition of payola at the League head office of which the Little Eagles are somehow unaware?

Unsure.... but I believe we are heading in the right direction. I guess it’s a “time “ thing plus the right moves.

Although as much as I hate it I would rather be us than any team that’s coddled I.e. Toronto Boston Montreal..Chicago types

My experience is cracked or bruised it’s not till the next day the pain really starts... I’ve finished pitching a game after landing on a ball in my rib cage and the next day coughing makes you cry like a little girl
