Most expensive rebuild in NHL history?

 

Regardless, if you choose to believe that JB intended to buy lottery tickets with Aquaman’s lunch money, as in build a core out of top picks, while spending to the cap, then you might want to ask yourselves if anything he did was intentional, regarding the rebuild. 
 

It’s how he managed (executed) this team to those finishes, which should be included in assessing his tenure and those consequential/unintended results, and their silver linings that afforded this core, not that he picked it in the top 7, say. 
 

He’s not really being judged on his “intended” results, but rather their silver linings, such as EP.

 

Even today, he might have mismanaged the roster, yet still have fate bail him out with COVID and IR interventions, which should stave off judgment on his actual results, instead of the unintended, silver linings. 
 

Is he lucky?  I like lucky.

So what is so bad about that? For starters Pearson is 3.25 not 3.75. Loui will be sent down saving another 1.25. Looks like Beagle will be on LTIR saving another 3. That cuts it down to under 25% for 2 top six forwards, a top four defence man and a third liner. That means the only real bad contract there is Loui. Roussel is also over paid a bit.

The fact is over paid for Pearson and virtanen and all of the bottom six (except motte) and recently states he does not plan to be busy at the trade deadline is concerning! 
 

he plans to ice the same bottom six next year? Doesn’t plan to try and make space with big contracts due this year.... 

 

yikes! I don’t think I can stomach this bottom six again next year

So a bunk player who never panned out,

 

A serviceable body who eats up minutes,

 

An up and coming young kid who still has a lot to give,

 

A nasty giant defenseman,

 

A former first rounder defensive specialist playing on the second line with our captain,

 

A Cup winning stabilizer toiling as 4C.

 

And the complaint is again?

Starting to believe Jim benning couldn’t manage a Burger King 

Funny you say that, as I don’t believe he would be best placed to manage a Burger King either. 
 

I mean he’s one of 31 NHL General Managers. I think he’d really get bored at Burger King.


Probably best to leave that position to Nonuts or Captain Circumventor, for which follies we’re still paying for.

Lol

 

Sure, possibly JB has his hidden reasons which may soon come out for this classic JB puckup moment, but meanwhile, the herd is slowly arriving to begrudgingly agree with what was once an unpopular opinion on here; JB is not a good GM for the Canucks. 
 

Aquaman, cut your losses; we’ll respect you more if you do.
