not very good grounds on which to claim you're the 'logical' one.

 

And your claim, regardless of 'logic' - is absurd imo.

 

Lemme guess....the Granlund deal 'made no sense at the time'?

 

Flipping NIlsson or Del Zotto for late picks "made no sense"?

 

Renting Vanek for Motte "made no sense"?

 

Taking Leivo from Dubas "made no sense"?

 

Bieksa and Garrison for 2nd round picks "made no sense"?

 

Renting Holm for Leipsic 'made no sense'?

 

Lack for a couple draft picks (3rd and 7th) 'made no sense'?

 

Kesler for Bonino, 1st, Sbisa "made no sense'?

 

 

Get real.

You're 'making no sense'.

 

The granlund trade did make no sense. We didnt need an older grinder.  Shinkaruk should have been traded for the highest pick we could get. Granlund has been useless to us.

 

And yeah after getting a 2nd for garisson he proceeds to flip that 17 year old prospect for a 22 year old hack lindey vey. 5 years of potential trial growth on a prospect down the drain Benning style lol.

 

And yes most of his trades make no sense but sounds like you are willing to make up some crappy criteria to defend him.

 

Like I said. Almost every single trade he made we got older which is absolutely ludicrous for a rebuilding team.

Vrbata really spoiled us. Who would have thought he would have turned out better than Louie with the sedins lol

Aside from the one good season, he was a huge floater. Eriksson at least does the little things right. Vrbata is really one-dimensional with more offensive skill.

Our team was devoid (aka empty) of any forwards between ages of 20 to 25.  That's why we traded for Linden Vey, Granlund and Sven.  

We hit it on two of those, and struck out on Linden Vey.  

2nd rounders usually don't make it to the NHL. 

Sorry but all three played no role in our future playoff team. What exactly have they accomplished for us? That’s right. Zero.

 We didnt sign Erikson to play solid D tho we payed him to score 20+

 

Atleast Vrbata delivered.

 

Eriksons saving grace is he hasnt become a defensive liability....except for his first game lol

 

Pretty sure Vrb hated our tank commander

That Russian guy the leafs signed today for free already sounds better than Vey, Granlund , and Sven. And he was free and didn’t cost a 2nd that we may have fluked out on.

 

He is projected to be a two way 40 point guy. If he hits that it’s more than Sven.

 

Sorry, but Benning simply doesn’t know the concept of value if it hit him in the face.

What did getting those players 20-25 do other than cost draft picks?

Look at who Benning has found in the 2nd round with the picks he's kept.

Why is every thread turning into a Benning thread? This is about Eriksson's comments.

 

Oh yeah, because there's a troll baiting everyone.

All 3 were signed to wipe out our tank.  Very poor strategy by canuck management in my opinion.   At that time, Canucks should have embraced the full tank and tried for a number 1 overall pick.   My neighbour plays womens grasshockey  on weekends and  she probably is way tougher to play against  than Sven  or Granny panties or Vey.

I take the mystery box not the flimsy cookware set.  Easy choice

 

Motte, Granlund, Leipsic, and Vey, at the end of the day are all 4th liners to AHL first liners at best so the fact that people use these as "wins" is just sad.  They are the kind of trades you make if we needed to shore up depth for playoff pushes...which I guess is probably what our management team thought they were..  a rebuilding team needs picks to hopefully find some impact players, or players who can grow up in our system and at least help ice competitive minor league teams which also would help our more legit prospects become better players.  

 

Alex Mallet, a 4th, Pedan and a 3rd for Derick Pouliot.  That's a win too because Pouliot has played NHL games..right guys?

The Benning defense force calls every move he makes a good move unfortunately.

@kingofsurrey and @Tomatoes11, I'm going to tell you one thing now and I want you to count to one thousand steamboats everytime that you make a new post.  

 

Everyone here like Jim Benning and the job that he's done.  You don't, but we don't really give a F. 

 

So let it be....  go on and wait for him to be fired and gloat then. For now, and the next couple of years, you're stuck with Jimbo.

Go ahead and get me a 4th liner out of a draft pick.  

Here's the 7th round from the 2009 draft, 10 years ago.  

 

7 182 Minnesota Erik Haula C Shattuck St. Mary's (Minn) 357 73 78 151 160 2018-19
7 183 Tampa Bay Kirill Gotovets D Shattuck St. Mary's (Minn)

7 195 Chicago Paul Phillips D Cedar Rapids RoughRiders [USHL]            
7 196 Philadelphia Oliver Lauridsen D St. Cloud State [WCHA] 16 2 1 3 44 2014-15
7 197 Columbus Kyle Neuber R Mississauga St. Michael's Majors [OHL]            
7 198 Los Angeles Nic Dowd C Wenatchee Wild [NAHL] 195 17 31 48 75 2018-19
7 199 Montreal Mike Cichy C Indiana Ice [USHL]            
7 200 NY Rangers Mikhail Pashnin D Mechel [Russia]            
7 201 Calgary Gaelan Patterson D Saskatoon Blades [WHL]            
7 202 St. Louis Maxwell Tardy C Duluth East H.S. (Minn.)            
7 203 Atlanta Jordan Samuels-Thomas L Waterloo Black Hawks [USHL]            
7 204 New Jersey Curtis Gedig D Cowichan Valley Capitals [BCHL]            
7 205 Washington Benjamin Casavant L Prince Edward Island Rocket [QMJHL]            
7 206 Boston Ben Sexton C Nepean Raiders [CJHL] 2 0 0 0 0 2017-18
7 207 San Jose Dominik Bielke D Berlin Polar Bears [DEL]            
7 208 Carolina Tommi Kivisto D Red Deer Rebels [WHL]            
7 209 Chicago David Gilbert C Quebec Remparts [QMJHL]            
7 210 Detroit Adam Almquist D HV 71 Jrs. (Sweden) 2 1 0 1 0 2013-14
7 211 Montreal Petteri Simila G Karpat Jrs. (Finland)          

 

 

3 out of 30, so 10% chance of getting a marginal 4th liner. 

 

Want to go up to a 2nd round? You're looking at a 30% success rate. 

 

You are more then likely to draft a dud, then to hit on an NHL player.  If you don't understand those simple probabilities, then go back to math 12.

What in God's green earth are you going on about?  

 

I don't know why you are bringing up 2009 and the 7th round, the only takeaway i get from this is that you are saying it's a bad idea to trade for a second rounder?  So why do teams do it all the time?  Why did Benning trade Bieksa for a second?  Was that a bad trade on Bennings part?  Think about what you are saying here

 

We don't need NHL players we need good NHL players

 

Boston, the team Benning was a part of, the team that is off to the conference finals AGAIN is filled with 2nd and 3rd rounders.. Marchand and Bergeron are at the top of that list.

With Boston, keep in mind those 2nd and 3rd rounders were drafted over a period of 15+ years. Bergeron was drafted way back in 2003, the freak year where almost everyone practically became a superstar. Since then, Boston's had some other good picks in the 2nd and 3rd round but, if you look at their draft history after 2006, there are not a lot of hits in the 2nd and 3rd round. Maybe Carlo or Spooner among a couple of others? Nothing nearly as lucky as before.

 

So, while I see what you're saying.... I think perhaps you have a little too much focus on their drafting from 13+ years ago.

 

Here's a good link actually with Boston. Shows their draft history. They've had some ups and some downs interestingly enough. 2007, 2009 and 2013 among other years look terrible lol.: http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/draft/teams/dr00004919.html

You're wasting you time bud... There is no salvation for this one...
