  1. The Canucks are following the Tampa Bay system by having a solid puck-mover on the left side and a depth defensive defenseman on the right side. Tampa Bay had a left defense of Hedman, McDonagh, and Sergachev. They were paired with Rutta, Cernak, and Foote/Schenn. The Canucks are doing the exact same thing. The team has Hughes, OEL, Rathbone and Juolevi as the puck-movers, and Myers, Hamonic, Poolman, and Schenn as the depth defensive defensemen. I don't like the term of this deal but we'll see how it goes.
  2. I definitely can, but I haven't decided if I wanted to screw you over financially or not. I'll get back to you with my decision.
  3. For anyone reading this in 2026, you'll know that this was a good move.
  4. This guy is going to be a star on this team.
  5. Nate Schmidt is likely on his way out too. I really like Garland, and OEL can definitely bounce back on a better team. This is a decent trade. OEL, Hughes, and Rathbone on the left side will be solid for the next 6 years.
  6. Really happy for Alex Burrows. Even though he couldn't get the cup as a player, I really hope he gets it as a coach.

      This. This would be so sweet!

      It would be so awesome...I'd love him to hoist a cup.

    3. Elias Pettersson
  7. Kent Johnson or Brandt Clarke (if either would be available).
  8. You have to think that there will be "Fire Benning" chants rumbling through Rogers Arena next season. Mike Gillis didn't even have this much hate towards him before those chants were going through Rogers Arnea. On a twitter poll, 85% of fans want Benning fired and on Hfboards that number is 98%. The population of Benning Bros are going down by the hour. This is going to get ugly next season. The team is lucky that they don't really have fans to answer to at this point, and I don't think adding the Sedins for that beautiful PR is going to help.
  9. Ownership bringing the Sedins into the fold is like when Bettman brought up the Sedins to the stage during the 2019 draft lmao... It's not going to prevent the backlash of this decision. Benning is the stooge of the Aquilini's, so this move is unsurprising. On the upside, Shane Wright is draft eligible in 2022. Another upside is that I can focus less on the team now while working on a few other hobbies I've been putting off.
  10. Benning is the worst General Manager in the league when it comes to signing free agents. I've never seen a single general manager just throw out multi-year, high salary contracts to players that will not benefit the team in the long run. I feel as though some random fan off the street wouldn't have made some of the ridiculous free agent signings that Benning made. His ability to evaluate prospects has been great, but it's not like the Canucks were picking 31st in the draft every season as well. If you look at the Canucks' draft history in Benning's tenure, there's only 4 players o
  11. I would love to have Gillis back with the current scouting staff. NTC's are still better than high-salary contracts that nobody wants. Benning is the worst GM in the league, and arguably one of the worst General Managers in the post-lockout era.
  12. I think it'll be either the Aeros or the Comets.
