Crabcakes Posted June 18, 2015 Share Posted June 18, 2015 No confusion. He's just incapable. He seriously believes being a 10-6 seed for the next three years is a viable option for this franchise. I'm willing to give the drafting a couple of years. But he has to realize that his scouting is the thing he's tooted his own horn about to the media since he's got here. So if within three years we're sitting here with nothing to show - it'll be such a disappointment. And this goes with more than just his drafts. Pedan, Vey, Clendening, and Baertschi all have to show up. That's two 2nds, a 3rd, and a 4th. A few key injuries didn't help matters against Calgary (Kassian, Burrows, Richardson, Miller....). The good thing to come from that loss was the deficiencies that it exposed and I don't think they were due to injured players. The injuries allowed the deficiencies to be exposed more readily. This last kick at the cup thing for the old core I think was just spin. They're in full on rebuild. This is clear. Benning is going slowly so that the new team is built properly and has sustainable depth. You can't introduce young prospects before they are ready and they have earned a shot. Are you one of these guys who wants it all and wants it now? Well to do it the right way, it's going to take 5 years. If you can't see it, it doesn't make Benning incapable.....
