When can we extend Jim Bennings contract?

Does the league even have rules for that?  I assume they can do it whenever they want.

I'll admit at first I was sceptical of jb but after seeing his picks turn out and the vision of the team in the future I'm ok with a 3-4 year extension.

Not sure I think it can be whenever the team wants to.

He's certainly earned a few more yrs with this, at least.

 

Then check out the 'Nuckin-doomers over at Van's HFboards page..should be uplifting.

previous years, it seems like, they will let go or extend gm's AFTER the season.

 

Example, Dave Nonis (he will actually let go with one year left) Mike Gillis was let go at the end of his term, I believe, Jim Benning since he's not let go yet, I am guessing they will see how the season goes.   Other then the Clenndenning trade and the Linden Vey trade,  I think he's done a pretty good job rebuilding, drafting, and transitioning the team to a new era.   Would have been nice if that jackass Ryan Kesler didn't limit his trade clause to one team.  (Yes it was originally the choice of one team, but then I guess he knew that was way too duchebag of a move so then it was moved up to 3 teams, which really handicaps Benning negotiation leverage).

Wasn't Aquilini quoted recently saying that JB's extension is coming soon?

 

Thought I heard something this past week.

Yaaaaa, Gillis was extended right before he was canned, so was Nonis, it would be a good sign.

From this week ... audio clip in there, too.

 

"Aquilini said contract negotiations are ongoing with Benning and did not give details, 'but as soon as we have something, you will be the first to know,' he told Walker and Rintoul. 'I am pleased with how Jim has performed. I’m optimistic we’re going to come to an agreement with him.'"

What’s the rush.

maybe wait and see how he handles gudbranson. a first (McCann) a 2nd and a 4th for Gud and a 5th.

He’s (Gud) a sign or trade guy he can’t be allowed to walk for free or even take that chance and he needs to get a fair bit back for him if he trades him (a demairs isn’t even close).

I think Green  has saved his bacon a bit If the team was as bad as most predicted (myself included) it would and should fall on managment after all they spent another’s 22 million of Frannies  money just to be losers again. 

 

Wait see how things this season develop.

At least we have ownership that is willing to spend the dollars.  Could be worse if we had the Canadian Tire dude cheaping out (or like the ownership we have for the Whitecaps).

Gudbranson trade ain't looking so good.  Despite injuries on the blueline, his minutes really haven't increased that much.  Course it's still early in this season.

I agree.  Whatever our thoughts about Aqualini, we got to agree the guy spends the dollars.  (How long before that Kerfoot guy sells off that young star he has?)
