  1. Does anybody actually have confidence in Benning as a GM?

      Nah, every single living Canuck fan thinks he stinks 


      The dead ones are waiting for him to die so they can torment him with trade proposals for eternity, and the undead ones are typically middle of the road

      Benning is a terrible GM. 7 years of a losing team, spent to the cap, traded away more picks than acquired, handcuffed the team with terrible UFA signings now that we actually have a core to build around. He never seems to think outside of the box or have creative ways of making the team better. He overpays and isn't very smart about trading off assets. I have zero confidence in him and time after time again he seems completely directionless and is a bit of a laughing stock to the hockey world.  

  2. Why do you think he keeps rewarding players who won’t Cups on other teams with overpriced contracts even if they can hardly play anymore? Jim can’t forward think to save his life
  3. I was so ignorant about the struggles women face for so long until I actually took the time to talk to my female friends and family. I did not understand because I could not imagine in a million years doing things so creepy and inappropriate to strangers but there are men out there for whatever reason think its ok to grope or harass women. I think the world would benefit from teaching boys and girls from a young age to be more respectful to each other. Its truly disturbing the mount a crap women need to put up with on a daily basis. I really hope your daughters wont have to deal with some of t
  4. If this had been her speaking out in support of BLM and being terminated would that not be unacceptable? Or did her contract run out and they are just choosing not to sign her like the NFL did with Kappernick? I am uneducated on this subject so I'm just trying to understand why this is ok to fire someone for this.
  5. But she was fired was she not, implying she had a contract? Or am I misunderstanding? Because if she was fired for tweeting that, would that not be wrongful termination?
  6. I’m not saying I agree with her (I don’t at all) but is that not her right to be able to express how she feels outside of work? If she believes republicans are being persecuted like the Jews were before the Holocaust, is that not freedom of speech? she is not advocating for violence is she? I don’t know why people feel the need to post every thought on Twitter but I don’t think she is wrong in telling other what she believes, however delusional she is.
  7. I am 26 and quit my job last year to pursue my dream of firefighting. Super nervous but you only get one shot at life so got to risk it for the biscuit.
  8. There’s a good argument for if we had just chose the TSN draft consensus picks (Nylander, Tkachuk and Glass) we would have a better team than if we took Bennings picks (Virtanen, Juolevi, Pettersson). He isn’t the wizard at drafting people say he is. He’s terrible at cap management and loaded this team with bad contracts.
  9. I love how people just keep defending JB as if he isn’t the one that put us in cap hell with boarder line NHL players and unable to sign even one of Tanev, Toffoli, Markstrom or Stecher and instead let them go for nothing. I’d like some of the koolaid please
  10. You do realize we are in a cap crunch because of Benning right? He put together this team loaded with dead cap space.
  11. I don’t think it has much to do with the coach why they’re so bad. But I think Benning will fire Green anyways. Gallant is available I believe. I would want him if we don’t keep Green. But Benning needs to go. Too many mistakes for too long. Some good moves yes but there have been far too many questionable and just outright bad moves that even the average fan can see they’re bad
  12. I’d like to give Jonathan Dahlen another chance. He’s putting up major points in Sweden. Why did he want a trade from us again?

      Super low compete level.

      How about we just find a good player instead?

      Dahlen is a big wheel on a second tier league in Sweden. He has not made the jump to the Swedish Hockey League. Tells you all you need to know about his level of desire to challenge himself. Like water, he has found his own level.

  13. Benning can do no wrong I guess? He literally signed the contracts that handcuffed the team. Canucks are against the cap because Aquaman wants to be a winning team so he spends the money. Buyout Eriksson, Baertschi, Roussel, Sutter, Beagle etc... because nothing says competent GM like signing a whole bunch of players to big contracts only to want to pay the players not to play for your team anymore. But it’s the owners fault right? Smh
  14. Would you rather have Nylander, Tkachuk and Glass (Consensus Picks) or Virtanen, Juolevi and Pettersson (Benning Picks)?

      There's no guarantee that this team would have ended up with Nylander AND Tkachuk because either of these players may overachieve to put us out of reach from getting the other player, as well as getting picks like Pettersson. In short, there's too many variables.


      There's also the possible scenario that Virtanen would have turned out to be the next Jarome Iginla and he was the dude in your backyard. Meanwhile, there's not really a guarantee that Nylander nor Tkachuk would have been good for the Canucks.


      Hindsight is useless for analyzing.

      Benning's picks. Petey changed the aura around the team, the city/fans/provinces interest in the team. Jake was more of a symbolic pick, everybody always complained "we don't draft local kids" "can't believe we didn't draft that guy". Nobody says that anymore. OJ its too early tell gotta wait 200 games to see what he really is, he's been good so far.  I don't think Tkachuk/Nylander/Glass would be any better. Calgary sucks, Nylanders train bait, Glass probably gets traded too

      What you are failing to factor in is the cap hit. We are getting more for our money. In a salary cap world you can’t just have talent in your top 3 highest paid players. 

      Would you want to be paying Nylander a $7 million cap hit? 

      I like Virtanen for the price we are paying for him. Good bottom 6 with the chance to break out and flashes of brilliance. 

      Tkachuk is a scum bag. Talented no doubt but no thanks in the locker room.
