  1. He was , by far, the best/knowledgable guy Sportsnet had - so it only makes sense they fired him. But you keep Cox and Kypreos and all those other winners, Sportsnet
  2. Smart, low risk signing. Raymond and Kesler have great advanced stats together, historically speaking. Curious to see if they still got it
  3. Good luck Hammer! Benning offering Russel $5+ per year and can't match Hamhuis offer ---- especially when statistically speaking Hamhuis is the much better dman. Typical Benning. He trades or lets all the good quality (statistically speaking) players go, then trades for or signs all the bottom of the league or over the hill statistically terrible players. Hence their terrible record since Benning took over.
  4. He saved Benning from himself. thank the high heavens
  5. Mike Darnay ‏@MikeDarnay 9m9 minutes ago Jim Benning has not had a very good year, with all of this happening since July 1, 2015. Yikes, yikes, yikes.
  6. How on this planet is this idiot still a GM? Who makes this trade? Of all the quality dmen in Florida, he takes the almost worst. And then adds in picks?!? In this world where every single team uses advanced stats, how can he not see Guds is a bottom pairing dman - who's making top 4 dman $$. Benning has brought in enough bottom pairing dmen, in fact that's ALL he's brought in & now it's all this team has (short of Tanev/Edler). A GM is supposed to come in and make a team better. He's done NOTHING but make this team exponentially worse. He's traded more picks in 1 year as a GM than GIllis did in last 5 years of tenure. He's traded more young players for older ones than any GM i've seen. He's succeeded in getting the worst asset/value ratio I've ever seen from a NHL GM. I could go on, the list is too long. This fan base needs to pressure Aquilini to get rid of this regime, asap.
  7. JIm Benning is the gift that keeps on giving, we've got Dorsett and Sbisa and Granlund and all off these great players under contract. So glad Benning is our GM. Here's to a few more seasons of top 3 draft pick
  8. Good comparable for Vrbata, though Vrby has way better advanced stats (and has historically). So if Vrbys traded, Benning should get no less than this. Who am I kidding, It's Benning. He'll add a 5th round pick + Vrbata to any team for a 4th rounder..... cause it's Benning.
  9. Bob McKenzieVerified account‏@TSNBobMcKenzie Conditional aspect of 5th round pick in EDM-VAN deal is it could become 4th-round pick if Larsen hits specified production thresholds. Oh my god this trade gets better. Larsen, who couldn't break the d-core in Edm, fetches a possible 4th rounder from Benning. Erhoff could only get a 4th rounder and he was one of the best d-man in NHL at the time. LOLOL. Benning is so terrible at his job.
  10. 5th rounder for rights to an unknown who's played 80 miserable games in the NHL over 5 years? Back in 2011, Erhoff (who was at the time of of best dman in NHL) had his rights traded for a 4th rounder. Benning is, by far, the worst GM I've ever seen. People balked over some of Gillis's trades, but Bennings traded more draft picks in less than 2 years as a GM - than Gillis did in previous 6 years as a GM. He's trading away the future of this team for players who (at his rate) 95% of the time turn out to be AHL players. Had he not gave Frankie Corrado away for NOTHING, this trade would not have been made. He covers up one terrible mistake, but making another. That's our GM folks. Worse than Keenan.
  11. Benning: Thomas Drance ‏@ThomasDrance 1h1 hour ago Same guy who messed up the Ryan Oreily offer sheet, drafted Jankowski in the 1st round and many other countless franchise destroying blunders. The same guy that Benning gave a high ranking job i the Canucks org to. I have no idea, none, how Benning still has a job. in a short time as a GM, he's made the worst trades and singings I've ever seen (well since the Keenan era). How any competent GM can make this trade and justify it as "quality", well he's totally incompetent.
  12. I guess it's hard to know whether he's an asset or not. He was doing fine statistically till Benning came in and told him to change his style of play and then never gave him a shot at the NHL lever. It could be a good trade - who knows right. Maybe like you said we forget about it.
  13. Gotta love posted who just write something like you did with no acutely value.
  14. That's some kind of statement which actually says nothing but shows what type of person you are. I detailed why it is not a good trade in my post. Furthermore, since when are basing trades on a players current and historical adanced stats a bad things. Both Chicago and LA won multiple Cups recently with this method. Vancouver is getting signicfictly worse under Bennings regime because he doesn't use advanced stats when valuing players and it shows. Since he got here, all he's done is trade away players with average or better than average advanced stats and bring in players with below average or bottom of the league advanced stats. That's no way to build a hockey team.
  15. Another terrible trade by the worst GM I've ever seen in the NHL. Giving up younger assets and picks for players who've done nothing in the NHL. Check. Bringing in players who have no history of quality advanced stats. Check Brining in players Willie will play no matter what just cause they're were on Medicine The team. Check. Brining in players who've scored 0 goals this season. Check. Giving up on young assets before they are ever given a chance in the NHL. Check. I don't know how he still has a job. He's got fleeced in every traded and signing he's ever made in Vancouver.
