In the playoffs he was absolutely adamant the Wild would run Van out of the rink. Then against the Blues he made a scoffing sound about Vans chances and said it was the best bet for a sweep. Then against the Knights he said ee didnt stand a chance...

Constantly wrong and down on the home team is old skullet man Ferarro. If he predicts anything whatsoever about our team you can take it to the bank the opposite will happen
I’ve lost a lot of respect for Ray, he just bitches non stop now

Yeah, given Jake's contract and the season he just had, I figured a buyout might be happening.

Because of his age it's just a $50K cap-hit in 2021 and a $500K cap-hit in 2022.

That's it!
Robbie W. wrote about that today on DailyHive - https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/virtane ... or-canucks

Virtanen is either gonna be bought out or if his case develops further they can terminate his contract:
Depending on what becomes of the allegations against him, the Canucks could be in a position to terminate Virtanen’s contract.

NHL Standard Player’s Contracts include a morality clause.
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."

Well, they were teammates, maybe they're still buddies?
I know somebody, very close in fact, who was Rays teammate and they called him Rag (as in Ray is on the rag all the time) because he had a mouth that wouldn’t stop bitching all the time. In fact they used to hang tampons in his dressing room stall, not kidding.

I'm disappointed things didn't work out with Tryamkin, I believe he would have helped the team playing a regular shift and killing penalties and that's not a bad return for a 3rd round pick, but after doing the dance last off season with Benning ultimately being unable to clear cap I don't blame him if he chose to stay in Russia for more after tax dollars.

I'm not really interested in Benning's version of events, he doesn't have a shred of credibility at this point as far as I'm concerned, and I wouldn't be surprised if the Russian team tabled an offer to Tryamkin with a deadline tied to it to avoid the situation dragging on. Too bad Benning didn't deal him to Arizona after their rumoured interest, at least they wouldn't have zilch to show for the asset.

Ferraro on what should be the plan for the Canucks:
Stop spending money on July 1st, get more NHL prospects, get younger faster and more skilled.

I heard that. I'm not enamoured with Green and I have no use at all for his bench assistants but the Canuck have way worse problems. I have no idea how they've set the business up but the Aquilini family needs to remove Francesco from the equation, hire a POHO who reports to the family/board, allow the POHO to hire a new GM, and then if they do even retain Green, let go of his bench assistants. Also, guys in the media fawning over Green obviously are buds of his or at least like him.

Vancouver will turn into an absolute last resort for quality GM's and coaches, if they entertain coming here at all, regardless of how much they're willing to pay as long as the team is being run the way it is from the very top.The family should be in purge mode.

Neither does Tree's agent, Mr. Diamond. sounds like a lot of posturing in the media from his part.

If Benning would have traded his rights to az and only gotten a 5th or 6th, the Media here would have roasted JB just as bad for selling low, and we would have been lucky to even hear that Tree wasnt coming back. The media has an agenda here, has no accountability, and never apologizes.

No doubt, I have no use for the media, but the end result is the end result and the team ends up with nothing from a player that could have helped the team. Death by a thousand cuts management.

Ferraro blows with the wind, if a team is doing well, they are his heroes, if a team is not doing well, they are the enemy. Hilarious listening to him flip flop with the score board during games. A fucking clown.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

He is used to be good, but he’s gotten to the point where I can’t even listen to him anymore

Jannik Hansen basically said they should be looking to trade Miller and Schmidt and get maximum young value. Said the team is years away and the retools over the last 6 or 7 years aren’t working. Tear the bandaid off.

That only happens if they move on from Benning

They say he turned down a 6-year, $30M contract from the Habs though.
Yeah Danault turned that $5M AAV down in the offseason after he was bumped out of the top six in the playoffs to rookies Nick Suzuki and Jesperi Kotkaniemi and was none too happy about it, but now his production is lower, so habs fans assume that contract is off the table, while Danault is probably thinking if he can still have that contract ha.
Thanks Skyo!

I did not know that.

Still I'd rather find a younger 3rd line centre if possible.

Still wondering if there will be any available that another team can't protect in the X-draft.
