Miss you too, Dude.
What possibly could be going on with you to cause such a hiatus. Doyle has been a royal mess without your support?

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Benning on Eriksson: We tried to give him a new team, a new opportunity, a new start. That didn't work out. As of now, he's under contract with us. He's still a good defensive player. We wanted him to score more when we signed him, that hasn't happened.

Full Radio Interview.
20 minutes long.
The meat of the interview starts at around 6min.
Worried about the complications of sending players up and down to/from Utica.
Tried hard but couldn't find a new home for LE.
Very excited about their prospects,. Notes training camp will be interesting and YES, there could be new faces this year.
The (HOPE IS) that Jake can play with Horvat and Pearson.
Really looking forward to having Nate in the line-up and hopeful on Juolevi.
Doubts Ferland will be ready for play in January or anytime in the near future--cont. to work with Docs.
Likes what he's seeing and hearing about Podkolzin and hopes to get him signed in April whe his KHL gig is up.

I didn't get it all. (Damn poor job actually) He likes housework... :lol: maybe messin round with the Mrs.

April 30... unless Pod plays in the World Championships which is scheduled to run to June 6.

So if Pod and Napkin are done before the playoffs, can both sign on for our playoffs or is napkin not eligible due to some random restriction?

Well we don't know when the 2021 NHL playoffs will begin so...

Pod can sign when his KHL contract ends on April 30 cuz that's an ELC.

However Napkin is an RFA... RFAs usually can't sign a contract after Dec 1.

So in a normal season RFA Napkin could not be signed and your answer is 'no'.

Of course this coming... not-normal season... that date will no doubt be later than Dec 1.

How much later? Your guess is as good as mine.

Dec 1 is around 2 months after the usual early Oct season start date.

So if the season starts Jan 1st will they make the RFA deadline Mar 1?

If the season starts Feb 1st will they make the RFA deadline April 1?

If it's either of those dates... or any date before April 30... Tree can't be signed during the 20-21 NHL season or playoffs.

I think I heard if they sign tree, they have to protect him to keep him out of the expansion draft. But if he remains unsigned they won’t have to protect him. So I expect he won’t be signed until after the expansion draft next year.
We are all Jim Benning.

So Hawryluk, Lind, MacEwen......maybe even Baertschi got a chance to knock Eriksson out of lineup.

There it is, Ferland likely to LTIR, $3.5M in cap, LE in Utica another $1.075M, $4.5M to sign a winger. :D once the season starts.

Yup the KHL is petty when a young star won't sign a new contract extension, thus JB is likely to sign him asap in April, burn a year but get Podz over quicker is the best case scenario, get him adjusted to NA culture shock, rip off the bandaid and get him into a Canucks uniform.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

He was talking about home repairs. Said he enjoys doing them but often doesn't have the time.
I bet Benning sporting a hairy plumber's crack while laying tile isn't the turn-on the Mrs is lookin for.

LOL no shit nobody wants Eriksson. Do people want herpes? The guy is a joke. Paid like a star player who is one of the worst players in the NHL. I LOL at all the people that said he’d be easy to trade. The useless piece of shit is owed 4 million in his last year of his deal. He isn’t going anywhere unless they attach some serious assets to him .... and no Juolevi or Tryamkin isn’t near enough.

Eriksson is going to finish his six year contract here. Why would he walk away from 4 million next year?
