Our media does not know how to recover from their gossip mongering, doomsday predictions. They are trying hard to be negative but in the end have to acknowledge that Benning did alright. Well, except, they always bring it back to, but if not for the Miller trade.......
Elmer has earned most of he lumps he’s taken in this market. He had a decent day yesterday but it was not always thus for him on July 1.
I agree Blob. I haven’t been a huge fan of his on July 1st. I love his drafting, for the most part. I don’t mind most of his trades. But his FA signings have scared me. So far I’m solid with this year. Perhaps having Luongo retire saved Jim from Jim.
Other than the abortion of 2016, I don’t have much issue with his drafting. His trades are dodgy at best but he seems to have finally cleaned up his signings. The Luongo retirement may have been a good thing for his team.

Ferraro - “$8 Million per year!?!?!”

Sekeres - “that’s right Ray! $8 million per year for 6 years! A $50 million contract!!!!

Sound journalism
Ray is now saying he thinks JB did a good job with signing Myers and Benn.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Ray flip flops all the time, though he manages to sound authoritative when he does it thus fooling the fools.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

That isn’t really a flip flop. Myers at 7 x 7 would have been an extremly stupid contract. That’s all Ferraro said. He wasn’t wrong. The contact that he signed is a decent deal for both sides. A cunt hair rich but not back breaking.

Pierre LeBrun is reporting that Myers left money on the table to sign in Vancouver....

Hopefully this means that Vancouver is again becomming a destination that players are willing to sign in without charging a surcharge...

Take care...

I’ll take the words of Ray over guys who have played as much hockey as MS. Kinda like how I’d ask a plumber for advice on plumbing before I’d approach a Walmart greeter.

Then you agree with Topper and I.

You'll believe Flip Flop Ray when he says the signings were bad

... and you'll believe him when he says the signings were good.

Ray to fools: "Believe everything I say about hockey because I played hockey!"

Fools: "He played hockey!"

Ray: "Now dance!"

Lol Doc with all his experience playing roller hockey on metal wheels in East Van knows more than Ray Ferraro a 20 year NHL vet who’s been TSN’s best analyst for fifteen years.

LMFAO

My email to Halford and Brough this morning

“Who’s the idiot source who started the rumour that the Canucks and Myers were talking an $8 Million per year 6 year contract that had all you 1040 Benning Haters in a tizzy last week? Shameful journalism. Amateurs with terrible sources.”

They responded with - “Sportsnet”
