We didn't lose Stech he was replaced by Hamonic. TT was traded pre-pandemic. TT was a victim of the cap not going up the expected 5-8 million. Beagle likely being done makes Pearsons contract a wash and who knows what happens with Rousell, LE and Holtby. The first 2 if need be can be moved based on what it cost the Rangers to move stall @6 million it will cost a 2nd, Holtby bought out is an option that saves 4 million.

People really need to see what the roster looks like after the off-season before getting all worked up.

The cap was never going to increase by that much.  It was already artificially too high and players were constantly complaining about escrow.  To limit escrow they need to keep the cap somewhat flat till revenue catches up.  Players and executives talked of how the numbers were too optimistic already before the pandemic.

 

Same happened the season before where the cap was projected to reach 83M but only went up to 81.5M.  They project with the full escalator but that’s at the players’ discretion.

We officially have a new Glue Guy. 

 

Also, Tryamkin might be coming back.

The way a COVID-19 variant ripped through the Vancouver Canucks since March 30 is yet another reminder of the importance of wearing a mask to protect yourself and others from infection.

Canucks players were on the ice without masks while interacting with Adam Gaudette, the initial positive case, before he tested positive. They did so again the next day when Gaudette was pulled off the ice mid-practice after his positive result was delivered to the team.....(cont'd)

You know, I would "you know" fire Benning "you know" on the spot "you know" just to stop "you know" hearing "you know". "You know?"

:emot-parrot:

LOL !  Reminds me of our old coach "Uncle Willie" who used to say in post game interviews; "The boys played a HARD game tonight against some HARD opponents who HARDly came in here to get beat by a HARD team and so that just makes me feel so HARD for our HARD boys !

So the Canucks are itching to resume the season and everyone is on the mend but Benning won’t be making any moves at the trade dead line out of consideration for the players and their families. I’m sure there’s some missed opportunities there.

Here are the full videos of the updates from Benning and Bovard if you missed it earlier.

 

 

Jake Patterson's question at 8:00 is Bang on;  "What does J.B. actually see in Pearson to warrant am extension?     I'm still trying to figure that out too !

 

IMO, not a smart move re-signing another old timer on the decline to a three year boat anchor contract.

I think Jim is suffering from ptsd after last summer and is afraid of missing out. Actually the fear of missing out is driving all these ufa decisions since the beginning and the reluctance of cutting Jake loose.

The other point I thought was interesting was the way he answered the Green  coaching contract.  Makes me thin k he may not get re signed but I was wrong once before
