Pearson's signing was fine dude. This false narrative that he's overpaid keeps getting perpetuated lol.

Simply said the order of our signings was and is becoming an issue. Offering Pearson an extension with. nTC was not needed during a bogus season! 
 

 

lol

Jim should have no problem attracting UFA's.

They can expect to get paid more than their worth. The Canucks will throw in at least one extra year and at the end of your contract you will get to spend the winter in Arizona.

You do realize that the vocal minority is actually CDC? lol

Most of CDC, other than a few posters, is pretty happy with the offseason so far.  The correct place for the whiners is HFboards.

This is the aggressive big bad Benning that we always wanted that shipped off without mecry Seguin for his behaviour issues

No this is a owner willing to back his GM and right the wrong.

What issue?

 

Horvat was especially happy that Pearson was signed. That means something.

I think Tampa would be more willing to ship Johnson off for a pick than they would be to cough up anything significant from their roster. If I'm a GM and my team's window is wide open, I'm doing everything I can to hold on to every significant piece of my two time Stanley Cup winning team that I can. 

 

Or, considering it's Tampa, I simply wait for a mysteriously well timed injury to hit so I can put someone on LTIR.

 

 

Who’s taking Johnson for a pick? That would have happened 2 years ago

Two years ago he had less term on his contract, and he's still a decent player. Just happens to be way overpaid for what he brings. If I'm a rebuilding team in need of players to fill out a roster and Tampa is willing to ship a first to get rid of Johnson, I'd take it.

But can his judgment be trusted?   He thought his line was better with Eriksson as his winger

I mean that if you look pretty much anywhere else, the general thought is that Benning hasn't exactly done a great job.

 

It's the opposite here, but only here.

 

The results support one "side", I'll let you guess which one. The other can only offer meaningless rhetoric having to do with "the plan" and "patience".

 

Quite Trumpian, actually.

Out of 10, how happy was he?

 

And under the same scale, how unhappy was Hughes that Tanev was let go? (your choice if you want to consider the fact that the guy they booted him out for has also just been booted out a year later).

You should post your tweets on Bleacher Report.

Well he was right, Pearson and Horvat without any right winger would just get overworked and tired.

And it's hilarious because the so-called "one side" is actually more balanced because we ACKNOWLEDGE Benning's mistakes, but we're able to recognize the good - like, you know, DRAFTING.

 

Apparently Benning sucks at drafting according to you, if we were to take you as a representative. You STILL cling onto the Gillis legacy days about how he was "building a winning team", so he somehow had the excuse to suck at drafting players outside of the first round.


It's all about balance - and the so-called "anti-Benning" crowd only criticize, but never recognize the good parts. In fact, they change the narratives to make Benning look worse. That's flat out dishonesty.
