He hasn't been perfect, but I like the overall direction that he is bringing us.

Happy for Benning. I may be in the minority but I love the job he's done.

I agree with you. He hasn't been perfect, but I am excited about the direction he is bringing this team in

Three years is about what most have anticipated.  Only rational that he be given time to show the fruits of his labours, and that timeframe will certainly show them.

 

Now, let's get on with the real business!

Voted good move

 

it is a good move, and its good that they got it done now so Jim can just do his job without this hanging over him. I was concerned other  GMs would try to lowball him in offers if his job future was uncertain.

he really is. I've tweeted him questions a couple of times and he responds with real answers. Seems like a good guy. 

He shares with those who provide him input.   Have enjoyed his input over time.

Considering our prospect pool has never been deeper in the history of this organization....he deserves the extension. I just hope he was able to convince Aquilini to buy out Erikkson.

Good move. I say 2 years, 3 max. Have see how the the young guys they have drafted work out. Interesting that if they do extend Benning that it comes just less than 2 weeks before the trading deadline. Has to be another key point in his tender as the GM on this team. He has to move Vanek, EG (if doesnt sign here with a reasonable contract), and possible one or two other players.

As 'unfortunate' as Erikkson has been dollar to performance wise, he's not useless.

 

He's a good PKer and does chip in some offense. If he were playing the way he is for 2.5-3m he'd be a fantastic asset.

 

He's just overpaid for what he gives. He's not a 'deficiency' to the team like Lucic is in Edmonton.

It was very good draft they got last year, and if Trymakin had stayed in Vancouver it would have been decent. Jury still out on JV and Juolevi. Plus also 2 or 3 other draft picks by Benning has jumped over to the KHL. Who knows if they will come back to North America. 

 

I remembe looking at Ericksson contract. It is pretty bad, and pretty much unmovable right now.

Jim Benning resigns for 3 more years?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

After 4 years, and after saying since they took over that they will strive to be "COMPETITIVE", they haven't been competitive in any way. Apparently is in "injuries and inconsistencies" that have plagued the team.

 

Thoughts:

1) Most of Lenning's trades have been terrible / mediocre

2) Free agent signings have been horrendous.

3) They whiffed on both the Virtanen and Juolevi first round picks.

 

Wow, I am stunned. The rink is half full. Tickets are $10 outside the main ticket office from the scalpers and we are 4 years away from being a playoff team. Our defence is ridiculously terrible. Sorry gents, I am stunned.

“We have extended Fin’s contract for another 3 years.

 

As for Jim, we are happy with his work so far, but our focus right now is to improve this team.”

I think Jims extension conference maybe?

 

Wishing it would be Goldy + for Domi but I'm dreaming :lol:

How about 

 

Tanev Goldobin for Domi and OEL? 

 

Tanev > Domi > OEL-37 > Goldy

It would be great to welcome your Canuck posting with a big fat minus, but damnit, I can't find the minus button.
