They'd finish with about 30 points on the season, setting new futility records.

I find it interesting that it only took two months for 20 ex-Canucks players to be placed on waivers, enough to make a full team of. It must be a new record among the rest of the NHL teams.

I guess it helps that the Canucks are in a time of turnover? I do wonder if this could be done with another NHL team. I don't know enough about the signing history of any other team to try.

It doesn't showcase the players Benning drafted, an area which he has done well in, but I think he deserves a contract extension and be given enough time to see how his prospects (Pettersson, Juolevi, Virtanen, Lind, Gadjovich, etc) do in a couple years from now with the big club. This allows time to assess his future trades and signings as well - I think he has learned from his mistakes in the past, e.g. giving Eriksson a lengthy and expensive contract.

the good definitely outweigh the bad for Jimbo. He fully deserves an extension

Onwards and upwards.

As for wellwood's, where is he anyways, post. Not a strong looking team. Amazed that in such a short time that there was enough players  waived to fill a roster. Not many missed or needed now. Nice work!

I’m curious if it is actually abnormal relative to other teams (but I’m too lazy to do the legwork to find out).

 

But yeah, I’d suspect the combination of our poor drafting history and tendency to accumulate high mangames lost numbers would give us an advantage when it comes to putting together an all-waivers team.
