  1. How many chances does LE need to prove his self ? Move on , make an example of him, let him ride the pine Utica bound, then demote him to the press box.
  2. and one more spot on the roster up here for a prospect so whats your solution ?
  3. True enough , but everyone is different , give him the dog and pony send him down them bring him up bag skate him .
  4. You don't know what will happen MacEwen may or may not become a top 6 NHL-er Training camp will tell.
  5. Send LE to Utica Let his ego want to make him retire.
  6. I think that the plan is to unload LE and Tanev at least . Having said that the roster will change as the prospects move vets out not one of us knows or can predict the roster outcome. JB job is to make this team a cup winner ,baby steps.
  7. Benning gets a B grade from me Could he been better definitely ,swings and misses yes there has been many. Drafting has had it moments . Free agent signings has a C rating, but this year a B+. I like signings this year. I thing Benning thought that many players would want to play here. And found only if they are over paid. I think JB has a tough time making trades with value. Are we better this year yes. Under a different GM we could be a lot better. JB reminds me of the tortoise and the hare , Can you see a light at the end of the tunnel yup is it the SC maybe in 5 more years.
  8. The up coming cap for this year , we need to send LE packing ether to Utica or by trade. This would solve our cap problems . Boeser will sign a bridge deal 5.5 x 3 , Myers may surprise all by taking 6.5 x 7 . we shall see.
  9. This line up if we could fit it under the cap I would say yes to
  10. Benning Is Ok , could be worse. he reminds me of a old hillbilly not a slickster GM . Too honest too strait forward and I like that but is he the right fit for our club? Keep rebuilding and trading Jim . hopefully we get there sooner then later. 50 years and counting
  11. What people fail to see that Virtanen was our pick good or bad .But the fail comes in, in what is he worth right now in a trade. What is Ehlers worth in a trade? and what is Nylander worth in a trade Virtanen = ? Second round pick Ehlers = ? first round pick Nylander = ? first round pick and a prospect Hmmmmmmm I think we get more for Nylander.
  12. I agree if turns out to be as advertised im happy with that but if becomes Lui 2.0 then what does that say about our team?
  13. Alf how can you say its complete. we are two D and one top 6 forward away at minimum
  14. Be bold my son courage is whats needed sweep out the old and in with the new . Clean out the toy box . Time for new and shiny
  15. I say package them both and trade for D help
  16. Bravo .This is what the fans want we want great not good enough!
  17. Don't get me wrong I gave him a B grade . Thats pumping his tires . But we all expect more and want more its his job
  18. And JB will never draft this because he cant see forest for the trees
  19. Im ok with Myers but he will be expensive. He wasn't a driving force in Winter peg but got the job done an upgrade to our currant roster. Would like to see one more D signed as well. so 7 mil 5 years is what his price tag would be .
  20. Remember its the fans that pay the bills wanting more and winning is what the fans want . All the fans have an opinion and have the right to express them. Fans live and die by their team . If JB brings a Cup to Vancouver the fans would revere him. But for now they will criticize him ,its their right.
