  1. If we keep Hansen then we need to trade Granlund or we will almost certainly be losing him to Vegas. Hate to say it but based on his age and the fact he will fetch more, we need to trade Hansen.
  2. Listening to that interview it sounds like he would waive...He keeps talking about how his family has discussed it a lot so that they can prepare themselves either way...If he wasn't planning on leaving there wouldn't be anything to really discuss with them.
  3. I love McCann as much as the next guy, but I would package him for Drouin in a heart beat. Drouin has elite prospect, first line potential where as I can't see McCann becoming a legit 1C. We need a top end scoring prospect and this would fill that need. I hate to say it, but this team could survive without McCann considering our current depth at center. When we traded Shink for Granlund this potential trade was the first thing that popped in my head.
  4. People need to remember that if the Sedins retire we will have an extra $14 million to go get a couple of first line players if we don't have any developed in our system.
  5. Give me a break...That 2nd for Baertschi was a STEAL..When have we ever drafted a stud dman in the 2nd round...We converted that pick into a 2nd line winger. Also, hate on Vey all you want but based on odds alone he has turned out to be a better player than an average 2nd round pick.
  6. If Green would have went to bad for Shinkaruk and said he could become a stud in the NHL, I can't imagine Benning making the trade. This kind of leads me to believe that Green doesn't think he will translate to an NHL scorer either...There are plenty of players who can score in the AHL but not in the NHL.
  7. Okay, but I know at least one scout came out and said that Shinkaruk's pre-draft interviews really turned them off of him and it's why he dropped so far that we even had a chance to draft him. It's possible he fixed it, but maybe he hasn't and that's part of the reason why Benning wanted to get rid of him.
  8. Really? He fell in the draft for having a terrible attitude, and there are numerous people saying he is a giant douche. His attitude very well could have been a big reason Benning was trying to get rid of him for so long.
  9. I'm not saying it's likely, but I'd rather enjoy the playoff excitement then not. Miller isn't going to change us from a bottom 5 team to a bubble team. What he will do is allow us to be competitive on a nightly basis. That's going to be more beneficial to a team (and Lack) then being behind all of the time. Lets see what the team looks like come opening day though.
  10. I like how so many people would rather bomb then have a chance at making the playoffs. Remember when LA finished 8th and then dominated onto their way to the cup? This team wasn't as bad as their 6th last finish would imply. The Miller signing by no means handcuffs this team. If he happens to play here for the whole contract it is only 3 years. But you know what...Depending on where the Canucks are at come trade deadline in the next 3 years, Miller is the kind of goalie that could be moved for draft picks.
  11. I would agree....If it was still MG who made this signing. But it's not. This is Benning trying to fix what was done.
  12. People need to realize that this signing doesn't handcuff the team at all. It's only for 3 years and can be traded at any point. It's also impossible to judge this trade yet because we haven't seen the final team that Benning will have put together come game 1.
  13. I shake my head at everyone saying "Why did we trade Luongo when he had less cap hit".....It's like you completely forget the circus behind that trade...It's also as if you don't grasp that Luongo's cap hit was 5.33 mil/year for 8 more years. I really like this signing. It's not an outrageous value at 6mil and the fact it is only for 3 years and there isn't a NMC/NTC makes it even better. I think this trade will make more sense a little later on...I don't think Benning is done signing players just yet.
