  1. I don't see where any of that could be perceived as negative by anyone.
  2. and whose rankings are those? 1. benning 2 through 31. all the other gms there, now he's number 1 in the most recent rankings. I don't know about you, but I feel a lot better now.
  3. and yet not argued by anyone who matters, since both the owners and the nhlpa were fully onboard. edit: and as far as cap recapture goes, the gms and agents that signed those deals knew full well they were violating the spirit of the rule, even if they weren't violating the letter. they played with fire and they got burned. serves them right for trying to weasel around like greasy lawyers, finding any loophole, grey area, lapse in wording or genuine oversight that they could exploit shamelessly in order to get a leg up.
  4. because vegas is his home. he'll be a marketable fan favourite.
  5. arizona is going young. tanev, in spite of his sparkling analytics, will hold no interest to them. he doesn't fit their window.
  6. wonder if dallas would look at tanev and 5 for 3, 29 and honka. that way if someone benning really likes drops to the late teens or early 20s he could potentially move 29 and 33 or 55 to move up.
  7. what the hell are you talking about? this is the fifth expansion bettman has overseen.

  9. no, if he does stick around it means teams aren't willing to pay jim's price, and he's doing the right thing by not compromising.
  10. i'm just looking forward to watching the identity of the new group evolve over the next 5 years or so. starting out as hard-working but lacking talent and losing far more than they win. gradually having the talent realize itself as the team turns into an overperforming underdog. eventually becoming a perennial playoff team and, with a little luck, maybe one day developing into a legitimate stanley cup threat. for me, the specific style of play the team adopts and the personality the group manifests matter less to me than enjoying the process of watching it happen, witnessing the group grow together and unify as an actual team.
  11. I could probably be happy with a honka + 29 + 39 for tanev deal.
  12. murray not coming anywhere near his potential probably makes edmonton feel a bit better about yakupov.
  13. I never had an issue with the deal. I still don't. I still won't if gudbranson doesn't pan out. the opinions of "analysts" whose views are based solely on arbitrary numbers in excel spreadsheets are meaningless to me. the reactions of gudranson's former teammates meant a whole lot more. the reality is gudbranson did and does represent a larger need for the canucks than mccann. if he doesn't pan out, it was a risk worth taking anyway.
  14. your logic is ridiculous man. maybe benning knew that mccann wasn't going to pan out and firmly believed there was nothing worthwhile to be nabbed early in the 2nd? would that still be high value? value is completely relative and you come up with completely arbitrary valuations. gudbranson was high value.
