  1. I don't think it's Ben Eager, fwiw. He was later named to the Chicago Blackhawks alumni to play in the Winter Classic. I don't think it's Brent Sopel either. But yeah. Maybe it's not someone who got traded, but rather got buried into the AHL.
  2. Holy &^@#... this is a bombshell revelation. Brad Aldrich, the accused, is already convicted of sexual crimes. Looking through the 2010 roster, I'm thinking it's a depth player that wouldn't have the sway power of someone like Jonathan Toews. And I wonder if the accuser talked to other teammates about this incident, though the article did say the "team" did nothing. It's really unclear what they meant by that.
  3. I think Podkolzin will be an attractive piece for him because they played on the same team in Russia, if I am not mistaken. Podkolzin will have a Russian friend to help him adjust the NHL game.
  4. Actually, there is nothing inconsistent about criticizing a prospect/player. The only thing consistent is you going after a certain GM, even if you're on weak ground. Gaudette is a good pick, no matter how you slice it, and if you were to look at that draft year in that round or later, you'd be hard pressed to find someone else better in that spot. That being said, he no longer fit the team. Do you really have that much of a difficulty separating the two dimensions?
  5. Or Victor Hedman flashbacks... Or Luke Hughes flashbacks... ...am I doing this right?
  6. Yeah, it's really interesting. The hilarity of this fanbase is that we are given a stable ownership, stable leadership (not very many GM/coach firings), and guess what we do? We have people demanding that someone buy the team away from Aquilini, and there are tons of fire Benning/Green proposals, particularly the Benning one. One has to wonder if people here realize how bad Buffalo has it. We absolutely should be grateful that the Pegulas are not running this show.
  7. I honestly feel that keeping Green and/or his assistants is not the direction that the Canucks should go. Green can stay, but one of his assistants at MINIMUM has to be replaced, namely Baumer. We are absolutely a tirefire in the defensive zone, and I'm not willing to chalk it up to simply roster incompatibility.
  8. Oh puhleeze. The excitement for players - especially those who show a hint of promise - is normal for a fanbase. Normal. This has literally nothing to do with "Benning's most ardent supporters". Second point - you literally contradicted yourself. "Benning sold low on him". "Perhaps his value was never that high to begin with, but we can't look at his 2020 season..." PERHAPS that the value wasn't that high to begin with. If you had just stopped there, instead of coming up with justifications for your perspective, you'd be good. Instead, you get in
  9. Hope this helps. Gaudette has holes in his games on a team that evidently has many holes. If you're looking to fix a ship with holes, what do you do? It's hard to say he'd be a surefire great player as you say, considering he started as a 5th rounder. But it does speak to the fact that he has gotten to this point. So you can't have things both ways, Alain. You can't be bashing one of many prospects who made the NHL, and turn around and call foul at the people who note the holes in his game. Seems like honesty is your kryptonite. Indeed, you can't
  10. Lots of people disappear when they turn out to be wrong. Then you have people like Provost that will insist that the sky is red after being told that the sky is blue because of his fragile ego.
  11. Gaudette was still a good pick. The problem was that he no longer fit the team. So how can he be a bad pick when others are talking about his (early) successes in Chicago? Makes you wonder...
  12. Yeah, or maybe the trade value was crap to begin with. What is this proof that he had high value? Any amateur can trade Motte for a high first round pick. Yes?
  13. We can have different opinions about something, but deal with the same facts. We know that Gaudette wasn't a fit here. Whether this was on Green or some other underlying factor, we won't likely know. One thing that Benning seemed to be alluding to about his comments was that Gaudette didn't appear to improve beyond what the Canucks had hoped. Benning didn't even try to say a good thing about him, which leads me to think there were other reasons behind it. But enough about my speculation. Given that you are likely a fan of Gaudette (I'm not a hater of the guy because I h
  14. He's a 5th round pick that made it in the NHL. What did Gillis draft again? Hmm? Or are you going to make excuses (time and time again as you have) for why he had such an abysmal drafting period? That terrible drafting has had implications to today's team. Why the hell for example is Edler still on this team, playing the role he is now, if it wasn't for Gillis' piss poor development periods?
