  1. Faith in Benning

    I don't have a problem with going into a re-build. We desperately need it. I do have a problem with a firesale in which we are trading proven players and not getting the picks or the prospects we need in return to actually rebuild. Bear in mind that on a 3 year time frame, we not only need young players who can step up and replace our 2nd and 3rd lines (as well as our defensive corps), we need to replace the Sedins as well. We don't have nearly enough top prospects or picks to do that, and the 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 7th rounders Benning has been picking up aren't going to cut it. If we had received higher picks or decent prospects for Kassian, Lack and Bieksa, we would be looking at a shorter rebuild. The way Benning is going about it, we are going to need 5 years or more.

    LA arguably got better too. So half of our division just got better and we ... Traded Eddie Lack for a couple of bags of pucks.

    If the management team thought markstrom was their man, how come they gave him almost no opportunities to play down the stretch last season.
  4. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    Whether we need him or not, we probably won't have him for the next 2-4 games. At least he'll be rested for the playoffs.
  5. Clendening looks NHL ready. Forsling has great potential but is years away from ready. Time will tell who won this one, Anyone have any idea why Clendening's numbers have fallen off this year?
  6. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    Love that this thread is still going.
  7. [Confirmed] Jim Benning signs as new Canucks GM

    Hopefully he won't suck as much as a GM as he did as a Canucks player.
  8. Nikolaj Ehlers

    I don't think Ehlers will be as much of a project as people think. Kid got up to speed in the CHL darn fast.

    They got down to the bedrock. And then they started blasting.
  10. Letter from Mike Gillis to Canucks STH

    "We need to get younger, faster and stronger. This is why i signed the Sedins to 4 year extensions at $7 million each. This is ehy i have most of our core tied up in ridiculous contracts with no trade clauses."
  11. Letter from Mike Gillis to Canucks STH

    It's still a process, apparently.
  12. [PGT] Meltdown/Collapse

    Torts is our worst coach since Keenan.
  13. [PGT] Meltdown/Collapse

    The 80's Oilers had a little more firepower than the 2014 Isles, who are missing their best player no less.
  14. [PGT] Meltdown/Collapse

    This is what we get for hiring Dan Cloutier as a goaltending consultant.
  15. LUONGO TRADED to Florida - Official Discussion Thread

    McLean in '94 was amazing. Stealing Game 1 in New York? Awesome.
