  1. He was here for 12 yrs man... He had a good run... Especially with his years under Benning. Teams on the up or at the top lose management to other teams. If the nucks keep improving as we expect we'll lose more staff to other teams willing to pay more or increase their responsibilities and or title. Gotta say... I love this team but we have to many fans that are just soo jaded. Always finding something to b!tch about. It's almost as if Benning hasn't done anything right the ways a good portion of the fan base spews venom over every decision or move Benning makes. Yah he sucks during FA. But I'll take that over sh!tty drafting! What do we want another Gillis as a GM. Can't draft worth the sh!t but is good at FA? What I'm saying is we cant have it all. Every GM we've had, has had some major strengths and major weaknesses. Pick your poison.... I for one am okay with Benning for a couple more years at least to see his hard work through. We are on the precipice of witnessing the best canuck team if all time. Yet many here are whining about... Well everything.
  2. ^^ Same as above That's what I'm talkin' bout!
  3. There was a TSN article today focused on the highly touted prospects out of Sweden over the past couple years. The title has Broberg in it but most of the love goes to our own Hogs! Unfortunately I can't figure out how to transfer the article here... So not technologically inclined!
  4. I just sent her a tweet... Not ripping into her because that would be the same as her. We need to be more understanding in these times. Less judgement is the way to go. Hopefully she learns that spewing negativity especially when not necessary will make her a better reporter. We have enough tabloid hacks in this city already.
  5. You have some well written out thoughts but to your point on parity... If the league us going for parity why would they stack the deck in favour of middling to better teams? It just throws that known theory out the window... So to speculate that maybe, somehow they didn't think about the possible 'pooling' outcome.... Wow that's just bush league embarrassing.
  6. Come on now.... They knew exactly what they were doing. It's just we as fans didn't catch on till now. If I was a Detroit or Ottawa fan, I seriously consider boycotting NHL for a good number of years. Bettman is such a weasel.
  7. In light of the lottery structuring during this covid effected hockey season, Bettman loves to punish the bottom dwelling teams and reward the middling teams. Every year a team placed 10-15 has jumped up to the top 3 except the Matthews year. The same theme this year but even more heavily weighted to the middling teams such as ourselves. I guess he doesn't want to award poor managing? I mean are the perennial middling teams managed any better e.g. Minny, Florida, Montreal?
  8. Wasn't aware of this... Pretty dirty if you ask me. Basically awarding the bubble or middling teams and some already strong teams... Just doesn't make any sense. As a canuck fan, we're not as effected negatively but Ottawa, Detroit... dang!
  9. Bottom 8 teams get lottery with equal odds of winning first pick 12.5%, then a second lottery sliding scale (like we currently have) and remaining 7 teams (8 once Seattle's in) puck in order of winning percentage. Yah?
  10. Brackett has a private Twitter account.... So you can set up a meeting with him... Give him a proper parting gift and see if he'll take you with him to a new team. Would do us all a favor here too...
  11. Yes I am! Unfortunately I post on my android phone... I hope to get on my computer and do as you suggest. Thank you for the info AJ!
  12. Okay... I come here to enjoy talking about the Nucks with fellow fans and get up to the minute news in the team. Normally I just scroll past curtain posters that have a hater agenda towards players or management. Not because I don't agree or that I'm a homer per say. Just because none of us truly know why any one decision is made by the organization unless we're given the full story. Those posters here that decide to make it their mission to discredit said players or management without really having any facts has finally gotten to me. So that being said, how do you find and implement the ignore button? To add to this thread... Just wanna wish Mr. Brackett all the best. Thank you for your great work! Really enjoyed how articulate and his thorough analysis on why scouting staff chose curtain players.
  13. Boeser Malholtra Thanks AJ! Very much appreciated the effort and helping us get some sort of canuck stuff to mull over!
  14. Folded steel look... Jacob ' Swedish Samurai' Markstrom. His best mask by far!
  15. Going this route... Just because Brock should be #50 in my estimate and Malholtra should be nominated somewhere around now. However, (someone here mentioned Pat Quinn) total somehow forgot about him! He should have been in here top 50 as well... Hard decisions.
  16. I don't know about you guys but Gelinas was a canuck for 5 seasons and two he scored 30+ goals. Better stats (then anyone else on the list), some if his best years with the Canucks and played an important roll on the team. He's my pick. Nominating: Sandlak Next Malholtra.
  17. Voted: 'suitcase' Nominate: Sandlak
  18. After looking through the stats if the remaining players... Half of which I didn't see play (or remember anyway), I just feel that Petey has already shown that he belongs in the top 45 players. Nominate: Martin Gelinas
  19. Hammer time! Going with the Flow...
  20. Voted: Hammer Nominate: Murzyn
  21. I'm already 'a thing'....
  22. Voted: Tanev Nominate: Hammer
