The question should not "when" it should be "should they?"

 

 

To which the answer would be "Yes".

The usual suspects will implode when JB gets a 3 year extension in January. Can’t wait!

The usual suspects aren't really fans anyway...  cough cough "bandwagon" cough cough....

They're running low on valid arguments these days.

But but losing Corrado for nothing was bad asset management and we could lose Gudbranson for nothing too!

 

JB has had his wins and fails - on balance I am fairly pleased with the direction of our favourite team and think he deserves an extension.

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

Correct.  There's no CBA for coaches or GMs.

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.

Man, I've never really ventured into the Canucks HFBoards until you mentioned this. I guess if we have another winter like last year, the Canucks HFBoards page definitely has enough salt for the entire province of BC.

There's so much nasty pettiness, I've long assumed it's newsworthy info, on par with CNN-tripe.

 

Prob some Van-haters claiming they back a franchise that they actually detest.

It definitely sounds like it, there's a tank thread in there and posters were actually legitimately upset when the Canucks came back to win last night's game. Such a toxic place, almost makes you embarrassed for them.

I just checked out the hfboards and I feel like I just discovered the dark part of the internet.

Oh man I had to scope out their reaction to Aqualini’s comments. My face hurts from smiling.

An entire message board consisting of that super negative guy you don’t want to get stuck talking to.

Since we let go of Carrado in the 14/15 season he has managed 50 games between 2 teams, a minus 14 or so rating, and 6 points. At the time it looked like poor asset management, long term it was a good call. Carrado is not a blemish on JBs record.

I was braying like a donkey or a 1040/CA/HF Boards fool and you knew that but I couldn’t help myself to the open door. Sorry.

Agreed. I'm digging our prospect pool, and he should be re-signed for that alone given the drafting record of previous GM's. Of course he isn't perfect, but he's in the process of digging us out of the basement without a top 3 draft pick. I'll see some more.

Really loving the job we at the most recent draft especially.  Virt's starting to show his potential now that we have a real coach, Boeser is a steal, Pettersson is a stud, and Juolevi will prove doubters wrong if we're patient with him.

 

I'm hoping he gets to finish the outstanding job he's done cleaning up Gillis' mess.

Guess I struck a nerve on my Guds comment....that's alright, I was wrong about Granlund before (as I've been wrong about a number of things).  Just my opinion (not stating it as fact).  In the end, I want what's best for the club (even if it makes my comments look bad in retrospect).  Note that I'm making a distinction between not liking a trade vs not liking a player.

They had a 'fire Green' thread after the first 6 games.  Actually, I find them amusing at times, but also kind of sad.  It will be like a bomb dropping on that site when JB gets a new contract.
