MNaslund?? Posted April 30, 2015 Share Posted April 30, 2015 www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/canucks-gm-benning-wants-to-improve-on-the-fly/ I have to say I am a little disappointed that this management group isn't gonna take a bigger action to Rebuild this team and just retool. Benning thinks that this core can still compete and be successful. I am happy to hear that he is very willing to ask players on our team with NTC to waive but some of the decisions he has made like to sign sbisa for 3.6M just doesn't make sense. He mentioned he wants to be like Detroit or Boston. Boston had lots of luck with there free agents and stuff and had a glory run like us and beat us now they aren't even in the playoffs. Detroit on the other hand has been successful this year by making the playoffs this year and every other year but haven't really been close to winning a stanley cup in 7 years. Also Detroit got really lucky by drafting studs in the later rounds like Federov and zetterberg and datsyuk. Does benning think he is just gonna replicate this and be like Detroit and get total studs in the later rounds. I don't know but it seems to me that he is trying to get into the first round every year and just see how it goes and get lucky. I don't know about you guys but I don't wanna just get into the first round every year and lose I wanna draft high and rebuild and push for the cup it seems a lot more productive. I personally don't blame Detroit for doing this because they already have lots of stanley cups, we don't have any. All our forwards are old and he wants to draft 20th overall every year and thinks were gonna be like Anahiem in 5 years. Change isn't coming, same old same old. He says he wants to build a culture around winning for the younger guys OK great but the thing is getting into the first round every year isn't winning anything. I'm not saying be like the oilers obviously I'm just saying he should be rebuild more then what he plans on doing.everyone gets the wrong idea of a rebuild, don't think of edmonton think of calgary. Who started a more aggressive rebuild a couple years ago and beat us in the first round yeah that team. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
