By sea and land Posted May 14, 2017 Share Posted May 14, 2017 I'm sure most of you are aware of Benning's comments he made while scouting overseas. Benning quote, "I tell my guys we're looking for European skill with North American grit." End quote. I'm making my opinion heard. Not too many things irk me enough to write a thread on it but this topic did. I'm 100% convinced this wouldn't even be a story if the media doesn't make it out as a "oooh, that's not politically correct. We should say something. He can't say that, can he"? Team 1040, ugh. Sekeres. Ugh. So politically correct it's sickening. Not only him but his stance vs Benning's comments are pathetic. "What would the Sedins think? How about Bo?" We all know the Sedins are tough cookies with great hockey toughness so they WOULDN'T care. They'd laugh if it were brought up to them. Bo? We all know he's slick and getting smoother by the day. He also WOULDN'T care. Yes I understand the media likes controversy and it could help ratings. People might phone in more and have their say. Maybe the radio hosts have a good show of back and forths. But piss off please. Benning is a solid guy. Comes across as very humble and genuine. Don't twist his words. We all know what he meant. Political correctness is out of control. Hey BC, let's vote in sn election. You can vote real far left. Ir you can choose quite left. Or puck us, we're solid left backers. Frick, I'll trade 3 Trudeau's for 1 Trump right now. Bugger off political correctness. Benning is solid so lay off the guy. BC, can we please have a conservative alternative? Finally I love the Canucks. Hockey is the greatest sport even with the Canucks out of the playoffs. Personally I want Canadian skill/grit AND European skill and hopefully grit like Blues Sobotka. Benning, you have my FULL suppor. Say what you want. Let's make our #5 overall count. Best player available, F or D. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
