And like I said Benning didn’t take advantage of expansion troubled teams could of just exposed Schmidt instead 

What makes you think Seattle would've picked Schmidt? LOL. And even if they did, we'd lose a 3rd round pick.

Losing Lind is not nothing; however, he's obviously not worth a 2nd OR a third. 7 games, 0 goals, 0 assists...

He coulda gave up 3rd or 2nd and got graves or leddy and left Schmidt exposed

I have no idea what went wrong with Schmidt.

Maybe his personality just rubbed the Vancouver people the wrong way. I also don't know if it's because Vancouver wasn't the place he thought it would be.

I can't wait for Schmidt to experience his worse nightmare again (Not being able to score on demko :bigblush:

They couldn't have picked a worse picture.

LOTS of caption potential..

 

"CRAP, I'm gonna do this lame breakout play again."

"CRAP, I hate this team."

"CRAP, my contract sucks and nobody likes me".

We still have Madison Bowey for what it's worth.............

Not gonna lie, I always forget he exists 

 

Worked as expansion fodder, could be a decent depth guy

I think the other part of it is who him and Holtby replaced. Players can’t focus the resentment on management so it likely was directed  somewhere else.
 

The team was also pretty familiar with him from some brutal games against VGK and he likely already had a bad rep before in the Nux room being traded here. Schmidt’s a talkative guy. I’m sure some chirping in the past was not forgotten. 

 

Lastly, Schmidt is a pretty boisterous personality. 

You look at some of the young core (EP, BB, QH) and they all have this kind of chill and stoic aspect to their personalities. Just didn’t mesh, imho.
 

It was worth the attempt but we made out pretty A-ok all things considered.

Prolly been said already, but in case...If Schmidt didn't like Vancouver, most certainly he isn't going to like Winnipeg.  I'm from Winnipeg and the best thing about Winnipeg was leaving.

Almost the same as the Scots say about the English ......

 

The best thing to come out of England is the road to Scotland

Anyone getting a feeling he ticked management off, so they used that picture?
