[Trade] Canucks trade Jordie Benn to Jets for 2021 6th-round pick


Recommended Posts

I guess they couldn’t have gotten this value in January or whatever... 

 

Why now? 
 

Had OJ, etc. in a taxi during a developmental year to ice a deep, competitive D corps.
 

Same with AG.

 

I get the deals, I’m just wondering if they couldn’t have been made before.  I guess the playoffs are finally not JBs focus for once, well since dumping Burrows, etc. 
 

JB doesn’t ever make it easy on himself, does he; there’s always a reason to seriously question his management.  
 

Good luck to a fellow BC boy who was a great character player for us for what he was brought in to do.  I suspect he will fill in nicely in WPG, and I hope he continues to prove he belongs in the league so he can get another contact.

Jesus Christ Benning traded an upcoming free agent for a draft pick?  I like it!  Though wish he did this 7 years ago when this team should have been rebuilding and actually had players of value to trade.

I would have thought the "trade for anything / don't let UFAs walk" crowd would be pleased. 

 

I'm pleased that he's out of OJ's way and we have a pick to use. 

Likewise.  Just hoping green actually uses OJ now.

This is the exact deal I expected NOT to happen given Benning's comments. If you prioritize a 6th over "doing right by the players," then why even say that in the first place?

 

Communication makes a sub par GM a horrible GM.

I mean maybe Benn didn’t actually get COVID and was just in protocol.

 

I took that more as not trading players and their families who are currently battling COVID. Sounds like Sutter is one of those players.

People are sleeping on Matthew Highmore. He's basically Motte with a Burrows like ascent to the NHL.

Yes, but do we need him? ;)

Gaudette?

 

Nothing makes sense unfortunately.
