  1. They can have Holtby with 100% salary retained, if I can punch Marchand in the face. Final offer.

  2. 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

  3. With the Leafs loss to the Habs, guys like Rick Dhaliwal, 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 signin

  4. Many thanks to the Canucks organization for bringing AHL hockey back to both Utica and Syracuse, two former EHL rivals when Slap Shot was real, not just a movie. When the Devils left Utica many years ago it wasn't long after that NJ captured it's first Stanley Cup with former Utica Devil Martin Brodeur anchoring the net. May Thatcher Demko be your Brodeur and lead you to your first cup.

  7. Hoge all day! Hoge all night! Even before this season began, I think it was clear to the millions that Mr Jim Benning was already the land slide draft god of the NHL... but come on... did he really do it again?! Is this real? Are you kidding me?! It wasn't enough that he somehow managed to win the 2017 draft after the "lottery system" slid us down to 5th overall... Fast forward a year... 2018 draft after the "lottery" slid us down to 7th overall this time... Jim said he doesn't care! Slide me down 3 spots I LIKE IT! But to somehow pull 2019 out

  8. I've been following this forum since 2008 and it's always great to read different perspectives about this team that we all love. Although I've hardly posted over the years, I feel compelled to now because I think we have a team that is unlike any other we've had before; at least within the time frame that I've been following the Canucks (the 02-03 season, the glorious WCE days). The person at the crux of moulding this roster is the ever polarizing Jim Benning. Love him or hate him, you have to admit that his run as GM, from what he inherited to what he is building up, has been unp

  9. For those that missed it, Kevin Bieksa was on the Halford & Brough show this morning and gave a very compelling interview. I highly recommend listening to the full thing: https://www.sportsnet.ca/650/halford-brough-morning/kevin-bieksa-edlers-major-media-covering-canucks-return-play/ Fast forward to 7:50 in... - Media in Vancouver is pretty entitled, in reference to not being allowed to look at two practices coming off Covid. - "If you're not gonna get it right, then don't report it" in reference to false reports about Quinn Hughes needing IV

  14. Given how challenging the last year has been for all of us, I want to take this opportunity to thank the Canucks ownership group for their commitment to the team and the fans. Having hockey to watch again during the pandemic is a blessing. Estimates are it may be costing our owners a loss of about 40m to have our team play this year. So thank you Francesco and family for your commitment to Vancouver, the Canucks and the fans. It would be a long winter without hockey to watch. Sometimes we forget when somebody does something above and beyond. Ya I get the fact that

  15. Also: Because it's Autism Acceptance Night I feel I have to address comments earlier that hinted that having autistic kids is somehow a burden/curse when, in fact, they're a blessing. It's a lot of work and extremely tiring for sure...but autistic children are so gifted. Once you learn their nuances and how to enter their world instead of trying to force them into our world, they're incredible. As the person responsible for the front desk at our school for autistic kids, I got to spend each day supervising them until the bus arrived at dismissal. One was a brilliant pianist and also knew

  16. LOL @ Vancouver media and their "sources". I applaud Aquilini for having a backbone. If this season is a write-off, the decisions on management can made after this season. As much as I question Travis' coaching, along with his assistants, I do believe this is the right move to keep things intact. Fans who don't want to watch the Canucks can watch the Sens or Sabres. I honestly think our fanbase is too toxic. We are basically BEGGING the media to make up news to support what fans want to hear. LOL. The result? Journalism without accountability.

  24. 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.

  25. I think we all have had different (sometimes opposing) opinions on the owners, the management, the coaches, and even the players. I think that after much deliberation, FA decided to calm things down, much like he has done in the past, by keeping everyone. I think this is the RIGHT move. There has been A LOT of talk about Benning being someone that a player doesn't want to 'play for', which is ridiculous. And there's been A LOT of talk about Green (and his assistants) being incompetent at their jobs. That being said, we as fans are not privy to how well they work together. I am cert

  26. Boston, Vegas, How many teams have pushed us around when it matters...and now we have turned a gentle giant into a tough SOB who will punch a rat in the face for barely slighting our goalie, and will take liberties on one of our opponents players, in a mini series where they've bullied our undersized stars. This is exactly what ownership, management, and coaching wants. Out fanbase needs to immediately, stfu, about Myers. He is exactly what this team needs and has adapted his game and demeanor PERFECTLY.

  29. I was thinking a lot today as I soaked in every second of hockey...both on the radio and TV. Sitting outside in the sunshine in August with....hockey on? How weird is that? The following is an "all about me" deal that comes with the hope that some of you might share your thoughts, feelings and experiences too. When Covid hit, I was in a very stressful job carrying much of the load at work. The more I did, the more my boss piled on and it was a thankless job with little appreciation ever shown. I didn't mind the workload as I'd rather keep busy than be idle....but th

  30. 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?

  32. I just want to say this to the fans of the Vancouver Canucks. It has been a fun and adventure filled 8 years cheering for your team. I embraced the Comets and the Canucks when it was announced that we would be getting a team. I spent a lot of late nights listening to Brandon Batchelor announce the games 3 time zones away. Lol We had quite a run year 2 going to the Calder Cup finals with Marky and Travis leading the way. good luck and I will be rooting for the Nucks 3000 miles away!

  33. The logic behind letting Tanev, Markstrom, and Toffoli walk: By choosing to move forward with guys like Holtby, Schmidt, and Virtanen over Markstrom, Tanev, and Toffoli, Benning is thinking long term and not short term. Yes, we only saved 1.8 million in overall cap but those terms that Markstrom and Tanev got would have hurt us long term. As far as Toffoli goes, the Canucks were reportedly trying to move one of Boeser and Virtanen to clear space so that they could accommodate Toffoli’s salary but received low ball offers. Had Benning accepted those low ball offers f
