  1. [PGT] Washington Capitals at Vancouver Canucks | Oct. 22, 2018

    It’s good to have a measuring stick to see where our rebuild is and where it needs to go. The Caps are big, strong and skilled. Hopefully, we get a chance to play them with a fully healthy roster to see how close or far away we are from being truly competitive.

    Hard to know the truth vs the spin. However, the outcry from fans has made it perfectly clear to management and the coach that “no response” in the future is not acceptable from the fan base.

    Defending the hit....That’s like saying that it was ok to ask someone for their money until I pointed a gun at them. We all agree that the hit wasn’t the issue, it was the body slam; that was unnecessary and what requires NHL discipline or an on-ice response.

    I wasn’t a fan of us pursuing Evander Kane but would have loved to see him on EP’s wing last night.

    Missed the game. Did EP walk off the ice or was he on a stretcher. Did the play result in a penalty at least?

    If Roussel is playing, who is getting waived?

    OK, if I am, please repeat your point so I can consider it.
  9. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    Fair points.

    Let me rephrase this as a question: based on the past three years, would you say Benning has been good with the contracts he’s handed out? perhaps Gillis wasn’t brilliant at contracts but I can’t see a case being made that Benning excels in this area, do you?
  11. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    I would agree. In hindsight, I was wrong about Pettersson (concerned about his size), surprised by the JV pick and Juolevi wasn’t my first choice at that spot; the jury is still out on the latter two being chosen where they were drafted. Overall, I think Benning excels at drafting and stinks with contracts (too much $ and too long term). Then again, Gillis traded Schneider AND Luongo and gave Lou that insane contract that still might bite us in the butt.
  12. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    Yes, but as I said, “Hutton is the only D “drafted that is playing for the Canucks. Lots of charts on-line showing games played by various teams draft picks. Until Benning, our drafting was terrible.
  13. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    Until Benning came along, Canuck drafting was one of the worst in the NHL. In fact, Hutton is the only D we have playing from 10 years of drafting. Gillis was better at contracts but terrible at drafting. So sometimes those in charge don’t seem to know much.

    And Goldobin is our best chance to get Tryamkin back.
  15. I agree there are lots of variables and we would likely nab a very good player at #3. However, Hughes is the consensus #1 pick and, for once, especially hosting the draft, it would be wonderful to pick first and Hughes would certainly help the rebuild.
