TheRussianRocket. Posted July 11, 2014 Share Posted July 11, 2014 The Summer Summit video posted by the Canucks, around the 27 minute mark Shorty says/asks, "Jim, we talked about your moves and your plan, I hear it in the streets when I walk around, and this is not prevailing thought but I've heard it. There are some people that think that the way to bring this team back onto the winning track is to strip it down, maybe lose for a bit, maybe not sign Ryan Miller. Take us through your thought process there and why you felt you went out and got a veteran, proven goaltender."Jim Benning's visceral reaction to the very concept of rebuilding is great, also telling: ..pretty much sums up JB's thoughts on "rebuilding". Later on a fan asked him the same question too and he responded by saying he wants prospects to be brought up in a winning environment with veteran leadership and presence which I totally agree with. JB knows how this is done and tearing down a team completely and expecting youngsters to just take it over and win is outrageous. Just ask the Oilers how that's turned out. Anyways, hope this will clear the smoke on the thought/concept of rebuilding. Not going to happen. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
