  1. 4 Year Term is Fine!

    The contracts aren't that bad, it's the logjam of vet forwards is the issue on a rebuilding team, especially for the next 2 years, that I don't agree with. I'd rather see us lose games with more prospects then more average NHL players, who aren't under 25. I don't mind Beagle and Sutter, but I don't believe this team also needs Gagner, Eriksson, Roussel, as full time players, hopefully Schaller isn't going to be a full time player as well, but if he is then it's really stupid on a rebuilding team.
  2. Coach Green on Sportnet radio

    I see where the op is kind of coming from, basically sum it up in 1 word frustration. And I am starting to lean towards that as well, because this team is built the same as last year and the year before and the year before that, not going on full rebuild and instead trying to compete to make the playoffs, yes would be nice but it's not working lol and really it's just prolonging the actual rebuild because they didn't want to commit to it first. It's the approach and mindset of trying to compete for the playoffs and build a winning environment for the young guys, but it hasn't been working lol but the approach isn't changing as we saw this free agency, and I think people are just starting to get frustrated with the same thing that keeps failing, and I don't blame them.
  3. Found this article kind of interesting, Bobby Ryan's point of view of rumours that went on at the trade deadline. As the deadline approached, rumours swirled that Senators GM Pierre Dorion was trying to package Karlsson with Bobby Ryan to get the latter’s contract (four years left at $7.25 million) off the books. And it turns out, Ryan believed he and Karlsson had been moved on Sunday, the day before the deadline. According to an Ottawa Sun article by Don Brennan, Ryan thought they were headed to a Western Conference team. “I heard on Sunday it was done and somebody backed out at the last second,” Ryan told Brennan. “Karl and I were like, ‘pack it up’. We thought we were gone. That’s just the way it goes. Then you’re like, I’ve got to move again? “I guess I’ll just wait and see how it goes in the summer. That’s all you can do.”
  4. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Well for the record I wasn't on board for the Sedins to retire in the first place and second I didn't feel they were taking up roster spots like many felt they were. So not sure why I need to make a roster without the 3 FA signings since I wasn't one of the fans last season arguing the Sedins needed to retire to give the spots to the youth of this organization... But what I was on board for after the Sedins did retire and not resigning Jokinen, was signing 1 free agent and was happy for getting Beagle, but didn't think 2 more spots needed to be filled on the roster with FA signings. I was more on board with allowing the youth to fill those spots, kind of what the fans who wanted the Sedins to retire for. So guys like Goldy, Dahlen, Pettersson, would have more room for those guys to get into the lineup without the 2 other FA signings. But now with those signings that room isn't really there as easy as it could of been, so my point is how can people who wanted the Sedins to retire for more spots be happy with the FA signings? It doesn't make sense lol.

    Man if you really think like that wow, jezz I wonder what you would of done when Pat Quinn played Bure with Gino Odjick..... Or when the Coach played Horvat on the 4th line.... What do you think of those coaches then?
  6. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Pettersson isn't that big he's very tiny so believe it or not 4th line with guys to protect him might be the best place for him to start if he does crack the lineup. I think the roster lines I randomly threw out there, shows this team is the same as last year for spots for the youth, the FA signings made sure of that.
  7. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    You're worried about where I put him in the lineup up over the fact the FA agent signings this whole argument, still haven't helped to allow more spots for the youth
  8. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Baer Horvat Brock Granlund Sutter Virtanen Eriksson Beagle Gagner Roussel Schaller Pettersson All that room for the youth after the Sedins and Jokinen left , 1 new face squeezes in Pettersson, but lose 1 youth Goldy so really no extra room for the youth lol.
  9. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Beagle is taking Sutter's spot because Sutter is moving up to the 2nd line for your info. Last time I checked Dowd was only brought in because Sutter and Horvat were injured lol. Dorsett wasn't taking up a roster spot to begin with , anyways you're missing the point or you're just one of those fans who I described and can't handle the truth lol
  10. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Many people are missing the point lol I'm not mad we signed the FA's lol, I just don't get people's logic who wanted the Sedins to retire to have more roster spots for the youth, but that's not going to happen now with the FA signings that were done and I really can't see how those fans can be happy about the FA signings, it really doesn't make sense lol. And Beagle will be the 3rd line center btw.
  11. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Lol no they're not Dorsett was gone for a while so he wasn't taking up a spot from these so called fans who wanted more spots for youth. And all 3 of those other players weren't full time players like the Sedins, they were spares so your telling me the 3 FA Benning signed aren't going to be full time players and will be subs? Lol
  12. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Huh? What are you even talking about that had nothing to do with what I said.... You're missing the whole point and jumping to conclusions that it's about replacing their points, which wasn't even the argument People wanted the Sedins to retire so more youth could play and get into the lineup, how do the FA signings allow more youth into the lineup? It doesn't because those spots are filled up by FA signings again lol, this is about roster spots not about replacing the Sedins points lol. So again I'll ask how do fans who wanted the Sedins to retire so more youth could fill those spots, be happy with those spots filled up again with FA signings and the youth don't get those spots again.... It contradicts what they wanted in the first place lol
  13. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    I'm kind of interested in the amount of people who are happy with the FA signings, and how many are the same people who wanted the Sedins to retire for having more room for the youth.... Because if you wanted the Sedins to retire for youth and are happy with the FA signings, you really need a
  14. Benning is doing a great job! (Discussion)

    Winners and losers on Day 1 of NHL free agency Losers The Canucks are supposedly a rebuilding team, but you wouldn't know it based on their free-agent activity. Vancouver finalized a couple of puzzling signings Sunday, handing out dual four-year, $12-million deals to Jay Beagle and Antoine Roussel, in addition to giving forward Tim Schaller $3.8 million over two years and re-signing Sven Baertschi for $10 million over three years. Both Beagle and Roussel have shown they can provide value as depth players in limited roles, but general manager Jim Benning went against the grain by adding them to a team that in all likelihood is still far from being competitive.
  15. [Signing] Canucks re-sign Sven Baertschi

    Yeah he's injury prone sounds like a Canuck!
