  1. When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

    I read that as well..Ed Willes...He certainly does not sound very optimistic that Benning will be extended...
  2. When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

    Benning won't be fired..just not extended..Linden hasn't given any hints at all that Benning will be re-signed..Saying he "likes what he has done",and "he came into a challenging situation" are very much past tense...He repeated those phrases on a radio interview this afternoon.
  3. When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

    Linden is on HNIC doing an interview this afternoon (damage control?..why is Linden doing all this press?)...I thought for sure that Benning would be extended,but I am seriously having my doubts now....If you're reading between the lines,you can brace yourself for a new Canucks GM next year.
  4. Linden and his Position the problem for GMJB

    Add Ed Willes to the group of reporters (Moj,Patterson) that do not think JB will be extended....??
  5. When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

    On Team 1040 Moj and Jeff Patterson both think that Benning might not be extended..both claim that it would clearly be done by now... Makes no sense to me either..Is Benning going into the trading deadline as a 'lame duck' GM..? Both Sportsnet and TSN had fan votes today..and both polls showed Canuck fans in favour of retaining Benning.
  6. When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

    I like Bennings drafting,but I feel that he's going to take a big hit on the Gudbranson fiasco (considering what we gave up)....That does not look like its going to end well for the management group.
  7. As I said in an earlier post..Hockeys a tough sport.. Brock Boesers shot broke Adam McQuaides leg. https://www.hockeyfeed.com/videos/video-shows-how-bruins-adam-mcquaid-broke-his-leg-on-thursday-night
  8. Earlier this season Brocks shot took a Boston Bruin to the infirmary...s**t happens.
  9. How is Travis Green Doing So Far?

    Not blowing my own horn,but I said this from the outset (I think you can check posters history)...Green was the perfect coach for this team..He's the best coach we've had since AV...
  10. When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

    In that 2014 draft ..in the top 10..picks # 2,3,5,6,7 have all underachieved given their drafting position
  11. When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

    Wasn't Buffalo the obvious tank team in the McDavid year...a whole lot of good that did them.
  12. I knew he had dementia,but didn't see this coming....He had one pickup,and basically one usable knob on his guitar...he basically had one sound..but what a sound that was....RIP Malcolm.
  13. When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

    You remind me of a guy who's been unemployed for 10 years..wins $5M in the lottery..and then starts up a company giving 'business advice'.
  14. Have you changed your mind on this season? (Discussion)

    The kind of hockey Green has the Canucks playing is precisely what I envisioned before the season started...I can't believe I watched 3 seasons of WD hockey..I really look forward to the games now...I honestly don't even think about the playoffs..Just enjoying the 'here and now' watching our young players improve. I checked every players name as tradeable..Besides Horvat and Boeser,everybody is fair game.
  15. Benning was the AGM of the Boston Bruins,not the Head Scout or the GM...One can only assume that he was involved in the drafting,but who knows....Check out Bennings draft record of Head Scout of the Buffalo Sabres from 1998-2004..Pominville,Miller,Stafford,Vanek etc..
