doesn't look to be all that much better than Boyd TBH at 26 years old with only career high of 22 points and not a good faceoff guy, never over 50%.


looks like another wasted draft pick. Only the Canucks could trade away more picks than they acquire during a rebuild.


part of me is glad they did something but if your relying on this guy as your 3rd line center, probly going to be disappointed. 

Bad take is bad.

Having a hard time seeing any negative in this. Elite defensive forward, at first glance, is something any team who can’t keep the puck out their net needs. I understand that our defense needs improving, but team defense requires all 5 guys, this should help. Consider me a fan of this trade. 

Especially being a good defensive C

He is actually pretty good defensively Alf. Hopefully he can work on his faceoffs 

We need a guy who can take D zone draws, so Bo dorsnt have to always do it.  Yes, he’s decent depth, but is he worth protecting (he’s coming 27) over Lind?

This is an okay deal on paper.


Dickinson is a good age and can play a defensive game.  Doesn't really do much else, however.

Our defense as a whole was pretty atrocious, this is a win imo. I'm sure Brad Shaw was high on this guy.

These are the kind of deals I was hoping for. Fill some defensive holes without giving up any high picks. 


We have the offense. We need a couple of stay at home defenseman now. Maybe another gritty bottom six forward. Do this without taking away or using a 1st or 2nd round pick.

Yes, but still time for that. Plus, multiple things need done.


Also, it takes two to tangle and deals need to make sense / be fair. No point in making a deal just to make a deal. 


Some will never be happy! Doesn't make a deal because nothing made sense / came up with a team = Benning is useless. Makes a deal to make a deal = Benning doesn't know what he's doing & f'd up the trade. 


Lose lose for him around here!! 

He has genuinely earned all the criticism.  Our team has been terrible for a long time…. Excuses about a thin prospect pool run out after about 4 years into a tenure, not a (new) 9 year plan.


After last offseason being a debacle, that was his last life for me.  Now he has to prove any moves by wins and losses on the ice before I will give him much credit.

One spot left... don't see us exposing Motte 

I love how Motte plays, but he is more easily replaced than Lind, in terms of raw skill. I believe that we protect Lind and make a deal to ensure that they take Holtby.
