  1. so we have the best goalie coach with all the negotiating power, but Jim's an idiot because he left it too long, which he actually didn't because he got it done, but he's bad because he had negating power and didn't use it, which he didn't have. Now thats a Benning hate logic pretzel.

  3. So many “Experts” here and shocking levels of ignorance. I would no longer be considered an expert as things have changed a lot, but I have in the distant past, investigated numerous sexual assaults. This is a really sensitive issue for me because I still take counselling over guilt for not being able to get convictions in many cases where it was pretty evident that a sexual assault occurred and I feel like I let down many people who came to me as it was my job to help them. It is shockingly difficult to successfully get through the courts and shockingly hard on victims. There i

  6. I was going to say you, but I realized you aren't Sid No, I was referring specifically to posters like kanucks25, Alain Vigneault, etc. Their silence on this matter speaks volumes about what kinds of fans they are, especially when they post every single freaking day about the Canucks problems.

  7. This is a really dumb take. You don't have to have a committee of victims...one is enough. You don't have to commit multiple acts to be guilty of one. I'm not of the guilty until proven innocent mentality...but I'm not sure that this spin offers anything at all.

  12. A bit of reaping what he's sewn IMO. When you're constantly talking out of both sides of your mouth, fabricating things and running down the team you cover, people are going to assume it's more of the same.

  13. I feel like his rebuttal that says he "didn't force intercourse" doesn't mean nothing happened that she wasn't ok with. But we don't know the truth and likely never will know the full version. These things ARE hard to prove but that doesn't mean they didn't happen. Or that they did. Whatever the deal is, time to move past Jake...too much distraction and not a fit here. He's got his crew but I'm not sure it's this one. Sad, I really liked Jake...IF these charges are proven to be untrue I wish him well. Somewhere else. I'm just tired of hearing about him

  16. I think there's also a significant reputation damage. It's foolish not to hear his side of the story and simply side with the 'other'. There's A LOT of questions to be answered still. I really wonder what took him so long to say this outright, not that it would change how people would perceive him anyway. Many of the twitter warriors, for instance, insist that Virtanen is guilty - even before all the evidence has been laid out. I think it's also important that the criminal investigation is ongoing (not likely to get anything from it), alongside a civil one. This, to me,

  17. Good to hear both sides right? https://www.vancouverisawesome.com/bc-news/vancouver-canucks-player-responds-to-lawsuit-alleging-sexual-misconduct-3861152 Virtanen denies the allegations “about what happened that evening,” adding “he did not physically force the plaintiff to have intercourse with him.” In his filed response, Virtanen “denies that the plaintiff expressed any indication, verbal or physical, that she did not want to engage in any sexual activity.” Adding, “the plaintiff, through her words and conduct indicated that she consented to the sexual acti

  18. Well we did need a goalie...and D. Probably a LOT more so than a winger BTW (where we're organizationally deepest). And Schmidt (despite his off year) was a no-brainer trade. Virtanen was an error given hindsight. The same people complaining about Toffoli would have been complaining about letting Virtanen walk for nothing. I wouldn't be surprised if Benning was likely attempting to use qualified Virtanen's rights to move some of that cap to add Toffoli actually. When Toffoli signed elsewhere... Sure. By most accounts, players are treated quite well and fa

  19. It all comes down to puck movement. Their lack of practice time was clearly affecting them this season. How many times were those one time passes just a bit off? Countless times I remember seeing Petey or Boeser have to reach back and hold the puck because the pass was off. If that’s dialed in our powerplay is much more effective. Everything should revolve around either the Petey or Boeser one timer, a Huggy point shot, or a Horvat bumper play. You do those plays effectively enough and you’re gonna score a ton.

  21. So basically Treliving saw we were interested and went out and signed him? Does that guy do anything original anymore? Regardless the Flames will be Sutter’s team. Doubt Muller will have much autonomy.

  24. Shaw is their "defenceman" Ian Clark. Big fan of Shaw. Lesser fan of Torts (he got a raw deal here but he was also done in CBJ) and ... Not a fan of Big lARSEn. If the team let him do his thing here, our system issue will be rectified. I'm a little worried about D-injuries since he relies on a more active and physical defence in the lanes rather than the challenge type that lets [poopy] shots through, but... we'll see what he comes up with. Could be a product of what he was working with there.

  25. I'm also a CBJ fan. Because I like hurting myself. To "us Canuck fans", this would be like Newell Brown or Nolan Baumgartner being promoted to head coach. A guy they've been screaming to offload... goes up the ladder. So yeah. Good times. Great.

  27. Shaw told us why it was taking so long on in yesterday’s interview. Brown was under contract and Shaw and green had to discuss without anyone’s knowledge. They only made the announcement once browns contract was up and not renewed as opposed to firing brown with weeks left in his contract. that’s not dragging that’s class!

  28. Excellent hire getting Shaw. Part of me thinks hiring Shaw is a contingency too. If we do poorly again, then Shaw could be promoted to head coach if Green gets fired. Clearly no one wants that to happen, but it’s good to be ready if crap happens.

  30. I think this is an important point, and something I had to reflect on after Benning & everyone else was retained (this happened before these new updates). It's clear that ownership doesn't listen or capitulate to noisy fans. That is evidence of strong leadership and proof that he has a backbone. We did not panic like the other teams did, and for that, I think Aquilini deserves some recognition. It would have been too easy to just fire everyone and use them as scapegoats. The team has a POSITIVE relationship with all of its staff, contrary to what the media reports. I am also mo

  32. So.... Benning returns. Green is back. Clark is back in spite of being virtually already gone lol. Schmidt (or whomever those reports were supposed to refer to) never requested a trade.... that's a pretty bad batting average for the smarmy drama queens.

  33. I would be surprised if Artur does not speak Russian since he has Russian last name which pronounces [Shee-lov]. How did Russian surname Shilov become the English-Latvian Silovs? Simple. After getting independence in 1991 the Latvian government declared mandatory name rules for the entire country. For the male population, the first and last names had to end with letter "S" plus the special local letters so Artur Shilov became Artūrs Šilovs which became Arturs Silovs in English. You know, the English language does not recognize those funny special letters in Eastern European names lik

  34. Hey everyone, so this year when I looked at the divisions at the start of the year it gave me this sense that the majority of the divisions were a 'feast or famine'. Top teams feasting on bottom teams and bottom teams starving/fighting amongst each other for their 2 points. However when I looked at the Canadian division, I had a hard time deciding what teams I thought would make the playoffs and which ones would miss the playoffs. Just with how teams were restricted to play within one division, I feel like out of all the divisions to play in, the Canadian division was the toughest on a nightly

Passive aggressive negative shots at the team and back handed complements. Plus, just being straight up wrong about stuff!
