Different players, different skillets, different teams needs- the age correlation between the two is irrelevant.

Sorry I don't buy it, every team wants good team first players, which is what Tanev was/is

Regardless of what comes of this investigation I’m pretty certain we’ve seen the last of Virtanen in a Canucks uniform. 

Ironic that Kobe is still a legend in LA while Jake is written off regardless of investigation results.

Back on "Ignore" for you.

What a bunch of nonsense posts.

Please do put me on ignore so that you can stop going through my post history reacting to everything I say you weirdo.

It's much more complicated than that unfortunately...there's still a limit to what a team can and is willing to pay. You can't overpay based on character alone. You wouldn't be a GM for very long. Lots of guys have good character...doesn't mean you should overpay them.

Innocent until proven guilty; unless you're Jake.

I understand that's how you feel, the organization felt differently. Not much else to day.

um, no. Its showing up to camp fat more than once. Its the inconsistent play. The lack of effort. The partying crap. This latest thing is just the icing. 

 

He hasn't lived up to his draft position, not even close and most of it is on his effort and commitment.

Kobe was  better at basketball than Jake is at hockey, and for some people that matters more than what  the allegations are/were.

OEL said in his interview today that "I know I haven't been good enough" and also expressed that it was natural that trade rumours etc. occurs if you don't live up to your contract.

 

He's still put up 0.5 PPG during the last 4 years, and I'd imagine there are a lot of players that would look at the issue as being something other than themselves. I like that attitude - although the 4 years might indicate he sees Tocchet as part of the problem - and also that he seems genuinely anxious to get over and start skating right away!

Yup.  

Sad how some folk worship athletes anyway.

He came into camp overweight once. He then came in to camp where his conditioning wasn't at a level that Green expected; not fat. He put his nose to the grindstone last season.He came in to camp in shape. Obviously he was progressing. He was playing well on the Horvat Pearson line and was doing the right things away from the puck. If he kept playing that way then the points would have eventually came. He's not the only player to have a tough time with the restrictions and Covid.

 

People are writing him off but he will rebound and fans will cry about why couldn't he do that here.

I still wouldve paid Tanev the 4.

He was the heart of this defense.

We offered Tanev a contract and he turned it down. We didn't get a chance to alter the contract offer because he signed with Calgary soon after our offer; even though he told Benning that he would sleep on it. He didn't.

$4.5 mill for 4 yrs.

Just a bit too long for me.

Guy is arguably the best shut down d they ever had, but the staying healthy part has cost him, and the team.
