orcasgonewild Posted December 3, 2016 Share Posted December 3, 2016 Hey everyone Sportsnet just came out with a new interview article with Trevor Linden. Here it is... http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/trevor-linden-qa-canucks-go/ It's an all around piece about prospects management and today's game against the maple laughs. ------------------------------------------------------------------ I know that the most biggest difference between 2011 and current is that we were contenders before but we may not be too far off. Best moves: Rebuilding our defence... Bieksa garrison Erhoff hamhuis salo To Tanev Stecher Hutton gudbranson tryamkin Creating goalie depth replacing Luongo Schneider and eventually Miller from the current roster With... Markstrom demko garteig Gillis vs benning era drafting gillis: hodgson, sauve, rai, froshaug, clark, schroeder, rodin connauton cannata McNally Friesen gaunce Hutton horvat shinkaruk cassels subban cederholm Benning: Virtanen McCann demko Tryamkin forsling boeser brisbois zhukenov gaudette jasek Olson candella (Quite the difference is high ceiling prospects) Signings Gillis: Richardson Wellwood Hordichuk Johnson Demitra Baumgartner Rypien Sundin Shirokov Samuelsson Glass malholtra sturm Ebbett Weise Barker benning: Miller Vrbata McMillan Bartowski cracknell Eriksson Trades Gillis acquired: Bernier Labarbera Alberts Ballard Oreskovich Higgins Booth Kassian Benning: Granlund Sutter Gudbranson Dorsett Sbisa Pedan Baertschi Prust Etem Larsen SPECIAL NOTES/SUMMARY There might be tiny errors above but that's it. -*Most of gillis's success came from players they already had in the system* -benning is clearly the better drafter -benning didn't get a lot of great prospects from the previous era like Gillis did (Sedins kesler Edler Hansen ect) -benning is basically starting from scratch and we should be thankful he turned around our goaltending and defense so quickly. -Benning has net out approach so he's gonna build out our forwards next. BE HAPPY AND EXCITED CANUCKS FANS BECAUSE AT LEAST WE DIDNT TAKE 10 YEARS TO IMPROVE OUR TEAM. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
