Did people not complain about having too many veterans in Utica and the kids not having enough ice time to develop?
Jovo, you're sounding like Doc without the quoting of evidence.

From Carol Schram:

The trade came at the request of Biega and his agent after his waiver assignment last week. Jim Benning told Ben Kuzma of The Province that he feels the organization now has enough defensive depth that the Canucks can call up a young player if injuries strike, and that he wants to see those young players like Guillaume Brisebois, Jalen Chatfield, Brogan Rafferty and Olli Juolevi get big minutes when they are playing with the Comets.

So now we
Know, Biega quietly asked for a trade and his agent had permission to speak to other teams.
The only HW the Canucks need

Fucking ungrateful Alex Biega. Ship his ass to play with Dahlen.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Fatanburger was a better player than biega last year, I wouldn’t go by his preseason play on a new team new system.

Wow. So now we lose our shit over a D-man who is somewhere between 8th and 13th on our depth chart. And, not just Doc, but a few other posters as well.

Just my 2 cents, but, "Good luck Bulldog, you were a great team mate."
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!

Sorry man, I made the mistake of reading the massive overreaction in LOL Land just before posting that. :oops:

I liked Biega, he was great as a #8, you couldn't ask for more.

But the time had come for him to move on and I wish him all the best...

We all knew that if Biega was getting regular minutes were were in the shitter. I liked the guy. I like his hustle. I like how he tried to play like he was 6” taller. He was the perfect 7-8 Dman . I’m glad it was handled quietly and I respect Benning for accommodating him. I wish him success in Detroit. He maybe a loss for Utica but not for the Canucks.

If we get to a point this season where we miss him than all I can say is get ready for a great
Lottery pick! Really.
