  1. Does that even make sense? You must be a chick. Arguing despite being wrong. Fair deal for both sides.
  2. [Trade] Canucks trade for F Brandon sutter

    You tried calling me out a couple pages ago but I replied and made you look dumb which is why you didn't reply. Then you called the other poster out, once again looking dumb. You insult people you like? You must be pretty lonely which is why you're on here trolling. Your reasoning is dumb and flawed, and no one cares about your Benning hatred. No need to complain, you make yourself look dumb enough.

    Your right, Bonino is a good depth player and it would have been nice to keep him but he is not in the same league as Sutter.

    So is that your schtick. You insult posters to make yourself sound relevant. I certainly trust Benning's opinion to yours. So unless you have something intelligent to add, don't post.

    What do you think the matchup were like? Do you think Sutter was playing the same sheltered minutes as Bonino? The answer, nope. Sutter played against other teams top line while Bonino played sheltered minutes.

    What are you talking about? Make things up? Are you daft? If you watched Benning's interview he talked the entire time about Sutter's character and that he's a foundational player. If you read Gallagher's Province article he talks about how Bonino's work ethic wasn't that impressive. Do you need it spelled out for you? Sutter has more character and leadership. Faceoffs? Bonino was 47%, Sutter was over 50%. That's not close for NHL centres. You don't even talk about the defensive side, too obvious for you? Heavy?? Bonino was one spot ahead of Henrik Sedin on the team in hits. He can't get any softer. Speed not close. Sutter is better offensively. Bonino had over 20 once when he played with Perry and Getzlad. He had 15 goals this year and 5 goals his other 2. Sutter had out scored Bonino while playing other teams top lines. Sutter shows up in the playoff and plays other teams top lines. Bonino plays sheltered minutes. So yeah the players aren't close. Ones a depth player, ones a foundation player.

    marginally?? Sutter is way better than Bonino. Defensively it's not even close. Face offs not even close. Size not close. Speed not close. Match ups not close. Character, etc etc. Offensively maybe somewhat comparable but Sutter is still better. Bonino's only good offensive season was when he was playing PP with Getzlaf and Perry. Come on Elvis, you're better than this. Except 7 or so years ago when you lead the Bieksa-hate wagon;)
  8. +1 Mathias and Sutter are nothing alike.I'm happy Benning let him walk and created the roster spot. Sutter was great trade. The picks were nothing and Clendenning won't amount to much. He's an offensive dman that can't skate. Bonino and Sutter aren't even close. Benning haters need to shut it and stop overvaluing Canuck players. No trade would happen if you had to fleece the other team every time. Benning has made more trades in a year than Gillis did in 5 years.

    Well $5M isn't that great but respectable. $2.5M is just unreasonable. Sutter is a better player than that.

    Did you even read the post I responded too. Appollo was comparing the two and I simply responded saying the two are nothing alike. Kesler, Bieksa, Clendenning, 3rd For Sutter, Sbisa, Dorsett, McCann and a high 3rd Seems pretty sweet to me. Suck it Benning haters.
  11. [Trade] Canucks trade for F Brandon sutter

    Kassian doesn't backcheck. Sutter is a a defense specialist. Sutter is a stud in the face off circle. Kassian doesn't take faceoffs. Sutter plays against other teams top lines. Kassian is sheltered from other teams top lines. The two aren't even close. Only thing that sucks about this trade is maybe how good Forsling might be. I'm also a little nervous what Sutter's extension might be. Kesler, Clendenning, Bieksa and a 3rd For Sutter, Sbisa, Dorsett, McCann and a high 3rd Seems like a pretty good trade for the Canucks.
  12. [Trade] Canucks trade for F Brandon sutter

    Love the trade! Great job Benning. The picks involved will be less that 5 spot difference. Sutter >>>>>>> Bonino
  13. It's pretty frustrating when posters call out Benning and his hockey knowledge and then follow it up with saying Stanton is a top 4 dman. The irony is rediculous and unbearable. Not saying that you are one of these posters (though you did say he has top 4 potential) but there seems to be a lot of clueless Canucks fans in this thread.
  14. Yup. He was a 7-8 on a not so good Canucks team. The only time he cracked the top 6 was on the worst Canucks team in 15 years.
  15. Sbisa signing aside (which in 3 years I think he will be worth it), what Benning moves do you hate? Kesler gave him one team to deal with. Lack's market value is what it is, Carolina wasn't the only team he tried to deal with. Lack just wasn't worth as much as Canuck fans wanted. If Matthias hit or fought he may have been resigned but this team doesn't need another Pyatt who's big but plays the game soft, they need a roster spot for a young player. So what moves are you complaining about? IMO his drafting record will force a lot of fans to eat their words.
