  1. Etem played the same last season hes a fourth liner that doesn't hit.... great.hes got speed that's it. He's glued to the boards and turns back the minute there's potential contact. Labate and carcone have shown more in one preseason game than etem did last season. Meh i don't believe anything management has to say, etem grandlund will be gifted spots regardless of there play so benning can save face same goes for Larson. Stecher is earning a spot as is pedan over Larson but my money's on Larson getting GIFTED a spot. I just hope it doesn't cost pedan on waivers. Oh well At the end of the day these guys won't change the out come it's just nice to see a guy throw a hit that isn't named dorsett.
  2. Then why is etem still here, he earned it.lol. with it outstanding perimeter play no hits and maybe 1 shot. The guy look like a bad version of Raymond. Carcone labate and Guance even skille look better than etem for the bottom six. And that's only out of the guys that played last night. Earning spots its is just another catch phrase benning has patented. Larson will be gifted a spot as will granlund and etem.
  3. Carcone labate have out played etem by a large margin. Third/fourth line wingers that hit and skate. Etem looks like he's stuck to the boards a very poor mans Raymond.
  4. Not to mention the missed goal Nvm.
  5. Criag Simpsons hate for the canucks should be at an all time high with his kid on the oilers. Sure Hope he doesn't get many nuck games
  6. Lol. CanuckS score and nobody notices.
  7. Could have waived weber or Higgins or sent Hutton down till they worked it out. Corrado sucks so bad yet TO didn't want to give him up And benning himself said it was a mistake. Spend years and money developing guys and lose them for nothing great way to run a team.
  8. Stecher won't make the team. Sorry. They'll gift it to Larson before stecher. Waivers will and should play a big part of who goes down they can't lose another young d man on what can only be called a stupid move. That said stecher looks really good.
  9. Larson will be gifted the roster spot.
  10. I know criticizing (without profanity) the owner gets a suspension. It happen to me. That wasn't the case before. The negativity that surrounds the ownership management and this club right now it at an all time high and rightly so. Extra mods to manage and block out the truth about who runs this team. Hows that for a conspiracy theory. Oh and that standard everyone's against this team Yada Yada Yada.
  11. He was signed to an extension before even playing a game and I believe with a ntc. it was a expensive step sideways he doesn't make vancouver better or worse than with bones but it cost a lot to get him and keep him. It was a trade for the sake of making a trade. Meh just like all of benning deals he lost.
  12. I know it's pre season but it's disappointing that not one feed will be on a network broadcast with all the technology At there disposal. The disconnect between the hockey crazed fans and the media never seems to narrow regardless of who owns the rights. Oh well tomorrow's game is televised well if it doesn't get pre empted by a blue jays game (blah) a recap of a 90's vancouver Grizzlies basket ball game or the burning holiday log. 3-2 Nucks.

I found it surprising even though I've watched them there whole careers (nhl). Two of the most underrated underapreciated players of all time.
  14. Sheep just follow the heard. Benning supporters don't like media reality or anything that questions thier God. Everyone in the world is wrong unless you agree benning has done a great job. This year will be better so much more depth.lol. Hamhuis out grub in vrbata out Ericson in. Yeah way better...lol. depth at 4th liners at the cost of picks and prospects but don't tell that to the benning homers 3rd4th line plugs on another team maybe but hey once in van their now superstars. Just like the pto's if Calgary took skille on a pto it would be deemed stupid by the aforementioned homers but it's a great job by lord Jim.lol. if Edmonton or any team in the league iced our line up the same fans celebrating how great Jim is would be laughing at the total lack of skill and scoring after the top line. But like I said reality isn't part of the Jim benning believer handbook. Ohwell wille gone by Xmas Jim done when his team finishes bottom three again. Oh mg was horrible and it was burkes team that made it to the game 7 scf (aka the stupidest argument in the history of hockey)
