    benning has been on the phones every day for long hours trying to make trades. that has already been reported. can he find a suitable trade? only time will tell. those who have never ran a team will say making trades are easy and benning is a fool if he can't make any. no one says, thanks jim for the hours you spent on the phone trying to make deals. so i'll be the lone wolf and say thanks jim.

    This is smallpox. Smallpox has been eradicated because of vaccines that apparently don't work. This is Polio. Also gone thanks to vaccinations that "don't work" Just don't. Keep it about hockey not your hippy dippy anti vaccination nonsense. Unless you can prove 100% they don't work, just don't. Because of vaccinations we don't see images like these as commonplace anymore and that is a damned good thing. So unless you can provide PROOF that isn't derived from Jenny mcarthy just don't. Because NOBODY ever deserves to see their child suffer from these issues and you should be damned frigging glad about that and shaking the hand of a gd scientist every time you meet one and saying thank you. Now keep it to hockey, not hokey new age crap that every scientist biologist and doctor worth the title has laughed at resoundingly k.

    Not sure what you expect him to say? They try...and it isn't as easy as our armchair GM's think. You have 30 teams all vying for the same pieces of the puzzle....nothing comes easy (or cheap). I feel like many in this town have become spoiled and entitled...I've slugged it out for years with this team and see reasons to be optimistic and hopeful. I feel like it's become "cool" to complain. About everything.

    "So we've been scouting some guys, they look real good, we like what we see, Virtanen is becoming a better player and learning, We haven't asked anybody to waive yet, We've got some calls from some teams, and Miller is really solid this year" Thanks for your time Jim Benning.

    Not sure why Benning is subjecting himself to this right now. I see that he's chosen the best possible time slot though. Avoided those immense douchebags Sekeres and Price, and complete morons Blow Jake and Scat.

    Benning: Yaa, we're talking to teams. I'm on the phone a lot right now, and like, if something makes sense we'll do it. I don't want to get into details about which of our players we've talked to, but we're working towards making the team better now and in the future. With the expansion draft this year it's gonna be tough to make trades, like lots of teams are still trying to figure out if they want to work on that now or wait till the offseason. We've got a plan in place if we trade some guys and if we don't at the deadline for the expansion process. Ya we're going to keep talking to teams and see if we can get something done that makes sense.

    I think its the impending doom feeling that comes along with TDL and the Canucks. We were hoping for picks and prospects and all we're going to end up with is 5 guys with sore nuts.

    Exactly which NHLers are getting consistently benched in favor plugs? Because we're pretty damn thin when it comes to forward depth.

    I've questioned the lip service that is delivered that fails to adequately address, with consistency, high risk and dangerous hits. If you want to eliminate something, you do. When you dabble and constantly explain things away it leaves the door open, with disastrous consequences. There really needs to be a zero tolerance policy and even accidental hits to the head have to be addressed. None of this primary point of contact and stuff that makes excuses.

    Jake Virtanen is a 20 year old kid playing hockey in the Vancouver Canucks development program which is being debated in no less than 3 ongoing threads at this moment in time.

    Canucks vs Sharks Saturday night. Jumbo Joe and Pavelski on the rush with Burns trailing, in on... Jordan Subban. Or into the corner with Marleau and Ward. You don't want that.

    And just last week Subban was over heard saying, "what's it going to take to get a call up, an infectious disease?"

    CDC ridules him when he comes on and talks about specific players (Stamkos, Subban) and they ridicule him when he gives stock answers, if I was him I would not even bother telling the fans anything. Just do your thing... proof will be in the results.

    -Sutter is almost a year younger. -Sutter is averaging 19:50 TOI Berglund is avergaing 15:38 -Sutter is 55.5% on the draw Berglund is 49.9% -Sutter is the better penalty killer of the 2 -points wise, shot blocks, injury wise they are pretty much a wash -Berglund hits more How is it that sutters contract sucks but this contract is decent?

    I always thought Benning was pretty straight forward and honest with the media, more so than most GM's. You guys are describing Gillis. That being said what's the over/under on 'you know'? My bet is 18

Cap'n, in lieu of an unavailable '+' I'll confirm that MM and I routinely meet up for tea and scrumpets to laugh at allllll the potential players you're missing out on that you get to be the agent passing them out like candy ....these ill-advise laughing fits will soon turn to tears when I see who you steal from me come expansion day

    Have fun being disappointed then. I don't think they are putting much thought into trading him anyway. The team likes Miller, and Miller likes the team.

    He is a player who never should of been selected 6th overall. He is a player who is struggling to find his way right now. He is a player with shoulder injury issues He is a player who is overrated and has had unfair expectations placed on him because of his draft position He is immature and it will take a lot of time before we truly know what he is He was rushed in to the NHL which only made matters worse He can't score at this level like he could in Junior and his lack of skill is being exposed Feel free to add to the list

    I find this a little ridiculous. Cocaine is an illegal substance...nothing "grown man" to that and I don't feel that it's something to support as such. Working in the field for a number of years, cocaine can destroy lives. Grown men often have families at home and it's important to keep that in mind. Many of the NHL players who don't have families yet are teenagers just entering the league. Is it fair to throw them into an environment that ignores drug use then expect them to succeed? You're setting them up for disaster if this is an accepted part of it. Addicts start using with moderation in mind...just doesn't always end that way.

    There used to be a time where it was only really Canucks Talk that could be ridiculed on this site. Then you look at some of the crap being posted in Off Topic now and you can't help but laugh at the sheer stupidity of individual posters, to whom it's not even worth replying due to their idiocy, willingness to believe something that somebody wrote in a crappy conspiracy theory blog, and unwillingness to back up what they post with any sort of reliable evidence or statistics. And that's not even taking into consideration the borderline bigotry. It's always the same posters in every thread.

    LMAO JUST so we are clear Those stories, describe in brief what happens in a country of roughly 10 millions people. In 1 section. Just for clarification. The US had over 340 cars lit on fire last weekend alone, and here is the record of gun violence since Jan 29th, filtered for just mass shootings 4 and over http://www.gunviolencearchive.org/reports/mass-shooting Me thinks you piss and moan about immigrants in a country you know jack and or **** about but ignore the fact your neighbours are burning their country to the ground and killing each other en masse day in and day out. Way to pick and choose your fights bud.
