  1. With just weeks left in the offseason my feeling is the team will be competitive but not a contender.Let's see what Benning brings to the hopeful.

      We'll be competitive and we'll be in close games. But I'm not sure we'll make the playoffs.

      BanTSN doesn't even believe the Canucks can win the draft lottery.

      Maybe he likes Eichel more. For one I like Eichel more than Mcdavid at this point.

  2. It's a retool supported by superior player assessment with an adequate pipeline of legitimate youth that will compete for jobs in years to come. The Sedins should do much better because this year they actually have a line mate that is exceptionally skilled. The PP made the Nucks a success and hopefully the twins will attain previous acclaim with the PP. As for entry level contract contributors,it seems Gillis forgot that small detail when hs focus was trading picks to win at all costs. Benning has explicitly stated his vision and operational plan and that is how this NHL GM will build this good hockey team into a better one.
  3. Goaltending and PP shored up. Second line/D tinkering and we're good to go-with three months left til the season begins.

      benning says they will go with what they have to start season....see what they've got and go from there...expect 2 to 3 years to rebuild this team.

      Sure,if we are talking Stanley Cup contender status,Joe.

      That is a lofty perch and only two teams survive regular seasons and playoffs to reach the finals.

      I believe Benning has brought the team to compete levels now and a couple more significant tweaks can notch that up to contender levels.

      There has been a lot of addition by subtraction along with a wholesale change in management and direction.

      Those are multiple intangibles that has positively altered this team,already...

  4. So far,so good.Team has goaltending.Need some scoring but the FA day is young.

  5. Christmas for this Nuck fan: Draft day nearing and full of hope.

  6. Benning provides the team with the level of experience and skills warranted for the NHL GM position.

      every GM tries to provide his team with the best possible players...if it was easy, we would win the cup every year....putting a competitive, exciting team on the ice is all we can expect....only one team wins the cup every year.

      you sound like boring Sean Monahan

      Aquilini provides the team with the funds needed to build a perennial contender.

  7. November was a losing month with four wins and five losses and four ties-which led to four overtime losses. Four out of thirteen sucks pretty bad.
  8. Took half a season for Torts to blow the show.Too bad the league did not give him 30 games.

  10. Iginla and Crosby should make my playoffs.

      Samuelsson isn't afraid to voice his opinion. I don't see it as a problem. Burrows would probably understand if he read his comment.

      Cup winner.Consummate pro.Mikael has a voice and an insider's opinion.

  13. Big,bruising winger with a wife from Kamloops/former Blazer is on my mind.
