Seems like the Dude may have moved on to a new target.

Dude, Doc, ESQ, Coal Miner and Dicky etc HATE anything negative spoken or written about Elmer. ANYONE who even questions a move or three is deemed a Benning basher. If you aren’t a cheerleader you’re a hater apparently

After the coming season Benning is likely to go have made playoffs in 1 of 6 years.
Teams tend not to make the playoffs in a rebuild, Blob can't handle a rebuild...

Yes we know you hate GMJB and want him fired.

You really don't need to repeat it 5 times per day.

You hate him because you can't handle a rebuild.

Those who can't handle the rebuild can't handle the rebuilder.

The truth is spoken, once again let us all remind - Blob cannot handle a rebuild. I repeat - Blobbee cannot handle a rebuild

Yep, and that's a good thing - it all depends where you are in your team's cycle and the Nucks badly misread when his value was at a high. In sports we need to trade out assets while they still have value for younger, cheaper, developing assets. If we don't then we're stuck where the Nucks seem to be today with no takers for Tanev, Sutter, Loui. For the record I think Tanev can be moved but the return likely isn't great.

Sekeres had some interesting nuggets this morning:

- Tanev still on the block, trying to get a cheaper D back in return in order to free up some space to get another scoring W
- No takers for Loui without a prime asset attached (no surprise)
- No takers for Sutter, will have to recoup value with a good start to the season (again no surprise)
- Schaller's camp looking for a trade

So it seems that there isn't much in return for the bad contracts Jimbo signed over the past few years. Again it's not surprising, what we all figured, but at least Jimbo realizes his mistakes and is trying to correct at least a few of them. More trades/signings to come is my guess, just no idea how many and when they will happen.

Lol Schaller wants a trade. The guy was dog shit last year. Another guy with negative value.

I think most people knew it was going to cost assets to move the bloated contracts of Eriksson and Sutter. They were bad contracts the day they were signed and are horrible now.
