Benning has now come out and said cap wasn't an issue, he was prepared to pay Tree what he was asking, but Tree just didn't want to come to the NHL.

This Todd diamond guy is some piece of work, I've never heard an agent on the media so frequently, but fortunately he doesn't seem to have many other clients.
Well there you go. Benning didn't fuck up after all in this case. The big guy just likes Russia. Damn, there goes the narrative.
This one does not stick to Benning but that narrative will not die so easily.

That was pretty obvious

Diamond the weasel was just playing both sides to get a better deal for Nikita back home in Russia. Nikita and his wife have no interest in leaving the mothership

I wonder how much had to do with the team regressing back into a lottery slot. Joining a contender would be more appealing than joining a disaster...even though this is only a temporary disaster :look:
Had zero to do with it. He knows as everyone else not named Doyle and Meds knows this is an up and coming team

He is unusually tall and seemed quite angry about nothing...like a Meds/Doyle hybrid love child

What’s wrong with Matthew Tkachuk’s game this year, or is this more like it with the Turtle? And shit fuck whuddup with Pierre Luc Dubios? He stinks! Patrick Laine too. All looking like Jake Virtanen, and making too much money for what you get. I tell you what some. Juolevi might be the best of the bunch.

:lol:

Yellow Teeth Juolevi will do well to carve out a career on a bottom paring and get 400 games in his career. Terrible pick where he was taken.

As a asside look at the Chychrun kid. He dropped like a stone. People questioned his hockey sense. The kid is a horse like Seth Jones. Right now he’d look damn good as a top 5 pick which is where he was originally projected to go. Scouts may as well post at this board. They’re all idiots like us.

That'd be funny if the Canucks with some cap space sign July 1st UFA Phillip Danault to Toffoli's contract, 4 years x $4.25M AAV.

Danault is the perfect #3C in the NHL, who can play #2C if needed with his passing wizardry and killer faceoff skills.
6'1 200lbs

Displays plenty of versatility and hockey sense in his game, as he is capable of killing penalties and playing a shutdown role.
He can also line up with quality scoring wingers.

\\Long Range Potential: Versatile, two-way center
Danault is currently getting #2C minutes as the Habs center, and is only behind Shea Weber in total short handed time on ice minutes, he's their top checking center. Wouldn't be surprised if the Habs have to pay him more than Toffoli to keep him around.

Yeah, the guy some folks penciled into the 3rd pairing was considered a "saviour" (sic)... by Doyle's strawmen. :wink:

Danault would actually be a better addition than toffy

They say he turned down a 6-year, $30M contract from the Habs though.
