  1. Because this management isn't smart generally speaking. They spend poorly, which then creates problems to try to resolve that issue, and then another problem pops up. I don't think there is another GM or management that is under as much scrutiny as Benning and his team since he's taken the helm here in Vancouver. The only reason I think that Aquilini keeps him around is that he's a yes man.
  2. 6.5? Hell no. Management be &^@#ing happy with that, Hughes no way in hell he would sign that. Short changing himself if he signed that deal. He's probably looking at Makar or Heiskenan money and deals. I'm not sure if he's worth that with the season he had last year. Makar, head and shoulders above Hughes at least for right now. If Hughes can prove he can be defensively responsible and can be a number one defenseman on this team, then he deserves every penny and dollar he gets, just like Makar. But until that happens, no deal. This is interesting where these nego
  3. if Dahlin was somehow traded here for Hughes, there is no &^@#ing way he takes a discount just because of a legacy of Swedes on this team. Hell, Pettersson isn't taking no discount.
  4. Kaprizov got 5 years. There's no way we should sign Petey and walk him straight to UFA status. That would be the dumbest move Benning could make for this team. Feels like to me, it's term for Pettersson, and that he might not be convinced that Benning is the guy to make this team a competitive one. If it's not term, then what could be taking so long for management to sign Pettersson and now Hughes as well?
  5. I think it's tough for larger players. They manhandle their way to the NHL, and maybe they don't even play the right way. It's too bad, where smaller players have to learn to play the right way, and they have to fight through everything. I think with players like Virtanen, they had their road way too easy. He really struggled once he got to the pro levels - even the AHL, but especially the NHL. I mean, Virtanen has regressed to the point where he doesn't even throw bodychecks anymore. Wouldn't be surprised if Garland was more physical than Jake ever was.
  6. Yeah, I know that defense is played as a six man unit. But it helps that you have quality, and the more high end defenseman, the better the six man unit will play. Better players begets better overall team play. I agree with you in that Brad Shaw will have a great effect on the team. I'm looking forward to his effect on the ice, as well as on Green's coaching as well.
  7. That’s true. I would agree that Höglander, Garland and Motte are fierce competitors. Even if they are on the smaller side, they’re that much more determined than say, Virtanen is, who has size above all of them, but has zero competitive drive. I’d take the smaller guy every single day of the &^@#ing week, if their drive is that intense.
  8. Yea, that's true. Might also give management a false sense that their defense is better than it actually is as well. Let's hope Benning is smarter than that.
  9. Wonder if they're related somehow. Cousins, maybe?
  10. Really want to see him play. Seems like an excellent pick up by Benning.
  11. Things are getting down to the wire for contract talks. I wonder what's the hold up....
  12. There's another Hughes?? There's FOUR OF THEM.
  13. Where would that place him on the Canucks last season at 46.3 percent?
  14. The more important question is how does he look out there on the ice?
