  1. Thanks for posting this, @Bertuzzipunch, here's my takeaways on it: Benning is the most open guy that I think we've ever had as a GM in Vancouver, but BOY is he boring to listen to! #1. They are waiting to see if the police charge Virtanen so that they could just terminate his contract instead of having to pay him anything further through a buyout. #2. Juolevi will be a full time guy next year, provided he regains the weight and conditioning that he had before Covid #3. Sedins will be at our table at the draft (assuming that there is a open floor draft this su

  2. With the Leafs loss to the Habs, guys like Sat Shah, Thomas Drance, JD Burke, 650 Sportsnet, and HF Canucks have received VERY huge blows It wasn’t supposed to be this way. “We” were told by “the pundits” that the Leafs, under “Shanaplan” were rebuilding the correct way and that the Canucks way was absurd. ”We” were told by “the pundits” that the Leafs model was a model of excellence and that it would only be a matter of time before the Leafs took the torch from the Pens, Hawks, and Kings. ”We” were told by “the pundits” that the Leafs signing Tav

  3. Hoping that Shaw is in charge of the defense now, and that Baumgartner is just the guy who piles the pucks in those cool formations before each game.

  4. What I'm really blown away by is that there are people out there who would actually pay a subscription to the Athletic to read an article written by Thomas Drance.

  5. I usually don't want to reference Reddit because they can be an echo chamber as well, but this is a reflection of what some people thought of the very low turnout. Someone said it was less than 20 people. I'm not even sure Squamfan bothered to show up, though I do remember him trying to drum up the support here.

  6. If you show up to games to chant fire Benning you’re a loser. How about we go to you know cheer the team on? Thats what I can’t stand about a large portion of this fan base. Seems like they’d rather see the team fail to prove that they were right about the GM than to actually support the team. Be a better fan. If Benning is as bad as you think he won’t have the job much longer regardless. Can you not just cheer for the team in the meantime?

  7. So after all the hysteria and constant negative messaging from the Vancouver media, it turns out; - Clark is likely staying after all - Neither Miller or Schmidt are asking for a trade - The goal is actually to build a cup contender, not just squeeze into the playoffs Who would've thought !

  12. People are ungrateful! And comment more than they watch hockey. 6'2'' RHD that can play 20 minutes a night. Up and down a line up. Kill penalties. On a shutdown pair. Or with a top offensive guy like Leddy Giordano Hughes do not grow on tree's. Hamonic even drops the mitts... Such a player is worth more than $2 mill. I get loyalty. But Hamonic is the guy I am more determined to keep than Edler. In part because we at least have other LHD. His role is much harder to replace IMO.

  13. You honestly believe the Twins have the type of character to sign on as a PR stunt? Not a chance. These are two guys who love the sport, and want to help our team be the best.

  16. https://apnews.com/article/caribbean-canada-7430e40bc8808410db45d08feb8fbf71 I can't believe there's no topic on this yet. What a horrific, tragic discovery that was made in finding 215 children buried in a mass grave at a Residential School in Kamloops. Children?! I work in a school and can't imagine the vicious vile monsters who did this, along with those who stood by knowing it was happening. It's a despicable, shameful, disgusting, deplorable, unforgivable situation. We wore orange today in honour of these children and to raise awareness. But I am truly mortified

  17. Now Schmidt is on the move? Sounds like Drance and Johnston are spitballing and nothing more. The issues with the defense start with Nolan Baumgartner. Bringing him back is a mistake that will result in the team continuing to be porous defensively, regardless of the personnel on the ice. This rumor seems to be full of something that rhymes with Schmidt.

  21. Good for Waters! Pink Floyd song writer Roger Waters slammed Mark Zuckerberg during a press conference recently, announcing that the Facebook owner had offered a “huge, huge amount of money” to use the iconic song Another Brick In The Wall Part II in an advert for Instagram. Speaking at an event to raise awareness about imprisoned WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, Waters noted the deep deep irony of Facebook wanting to buy and use a song that rails against ‘thought control’ and mindless conformity. Waters described the development as part of Zuckerberg’s “insidious

  24. About 3 weeks ago I posted something that was rude and derogatory, .. over the top of average chirping that can take place on these boards. I was suspended (rightfully so) by @StealthCanuck who I am thankful for bringing to my attention. What I posted (cut and pasted), was something very similar to something I have posted before, but a far less tamer version of what I previously have. I made a terrible mistake by not reading the contents . To any posters I have offended over this, I truly owe a public apology, what I mistakenly did holds no excuse

  30. I thought your crowd is not going to spend money on the team anymore, let along buying tickets to games, to send a message to ownership? Hard to chant "Fire Benning" inside Rogers when you don't show up.

  32. I want to start off by saying that I have done a bunch of research on all teams in the league and want to talk about Canucks and COVID, how hard it hit us and where we sit as a threat in the league. Was this season a result of where the Canucks actually are as a team, or was our poor record attributed to COVID? And just how hard did COVID hit the Canucks organization? We have the fans who believe the Canucks have met reality this season and there are no excuses or reasons as to why this team underachieved and we have the other fans who believe in this team and believe we are better t

  33. 6th round pick that got a contract, and is thought to be similar to Jasek who's flourishing in the North American game? It's difficult to see you cheering for this team, based on your attitude. Which team do you actually watch, because it's certainly not the Canucks.

  38. That would be the definition of selling low. He's a very good defensemen who didn't play to the best of his ability last year. IMO it would be silly to trade him because it's highly unlikely we get the value we want our of him. If Jones, or another high level RHD is on the table then you make a deal. But I don't think that's likely. We are likely to see an over saturation of defense on the market this summer. We should be buyers, not sellers.

  39. The best news I've heard all year. This kid is going to be amazing. If you fell in love with Hoglander you will want to marry Podkolzin. The future looks bright. Thank you Jim Benning...
