I remember you using this same language when defending Dahlen.

 

Objectivity isn't about choosing when you want to use logic and when not to use it.

Well, when did I not use logic or objectivity?

Interesting.....so let me fill in the blanks so we get a clearer picture of uncle Jim's drafting and what it's left us with after 8 years;

 

2014 - One NHL calibre player (Demko) out of all rd's

2015 - One NHL calibre player (BB) out of all rd's

2016 - Nothing of any value picked

2017 - One NHL calibre player (EP40) out of all rd's

2018 - One NHL calibre player (QH) out of all rd's

2019 - One NHL calibre player (Hog) out of all rd's.  Pods is Unproven so far and could end up being another bust like Yo-Levi or Jake "The Ripper" (Hopefully not)

2020 - Not a single player will make the NHL according to hockeys insiders and no 1st or 2nd rd picks as they were given away.

2021 - Not a single player will make the NHL according to hockeys insiders and no 1st or 3rd or 4th rd picks as they were given away.

 

................so for all the Uncle Jim supporters out there and for those who can't do math, that = 5 NHL calibre players on our team out of 54 picks in 8 long years.  This is the reality of his tenure here and why he must be removed ASAP.  (See the facts/details below)

2014 Entry 186 7 Mackenze Stewart D Prince Albert Raiders [WHL]          
   

Let’s look at this from another perspective:

 

Draft picks highlighted in black.

 

Miller-Pettersson-Boeser

Hoglander-Horvat-Garland

Pearson-Dickinson-Podkolzin

Motte-Sutter-Highmore

 

OEL-Hamonic
Hughes-Poolman

[RathboneORJuolevi]-Myers

 

Demko

Halak

 

So by my count,...

-8 draft picks have made the team

-5-6 1st rounders (depending on whether it’s Juolevi or Rathbone that makes the team)

-2-3 non-1sts

 

The Departed, but played on the Canucks for at least one full season:

-Gaudette

-Virtanen

-Tryamkin

 

The rest of our current roster:

-Miller acquired from a 1st

-Garland acquired from a 1st

-Pearson acquired from a 1st (McCann), 2nd, and a 4th in an indirect way

-Motte acquired for a 3rd

-Highmore acquired for a 5th in an indirect way (Gaudette)

 

Previous roster players acquired with picks that played at least one full season:

-Baertschi

-Granlund

 

So, either I’m not fully understanding your argument, or you seem to have some kind of misguided philosophy that teams need to be built exclusively through draft picks.  I am of the belief that eight picks on a team is a solid number.  Can you provide examples of successful teams that have more picks on their team?

You failed at reading from the beginning of the post. Im going to spell it out for you

 

AIR-ick Craw-ferd was the head of scouting from 2008-2015 Benning was hired FIVE weeks prior to the 2014 entry draft. Do the math. Benning wasnt here very long at all before he had to make a choice on who to draft at #6 with the work that the scouting team had provided.

SINCE GETTING RID OF CRAWFORD our drafting has skyrocketed and since Crawford went to Montreal…..

I guess you cant read between the lines eh? Bennings drafting compared to the league is the direction this team is head in and how bright the future is. I actually stated a few times how bright our future looks with just the drafting we have done.

And look at Buffalo, Detroit, Montreal and a few other teams that I listed in my post… teams that have drafted higher than us and for a longer period of time, yet they are not even producing NHL players. Toronto, Edmonton… generational players from their drafting and nothing else.. Marner and Draisaitl are the only other players helping hold the team together, outside of their consensus 1sts overall and a 3rd/4th overall picks, they have almost nothing to show for the last 7 years of drafting

Edmonton had 3 consecutive 1st overalls and 4 1st overalls in 5 years. Of those 1st overalls, Yakupov was a bust, RNH has not lived up to the hype and Hall is elsewhere in the league.

 

Edmonton has drafted in the top 10 from 2007 to present 11 times. Thats 73% of their first round selections being in the top 10. Of those 11 picks 55% (6/11) of them were in the top 5. Of the top 5 picks 4/6 were 1st overall (67%)

You wanna talk about bad drafting, look at Edmonton and Buffalo, if it wasnt for McDavid they would be in another 10 year rebuild.

Well, it’s easy to troll so keep on.

You could have chosen another title and talk a bit more about the Canucks instead of Benning.

Just the fact Benning had the oppurtunity to pick early is different if you compare with Gillis. 
So when there is a lot of factors that has to fit in perfect It’s not because of One GM or One scout.

As I said, without Inge in the organisation No Petey. And because people seem to misunderstand, yes, one scout or one GM can determine wich player it is that drafts but on the whole it’s not because of one scout or GM. 
So why bring forth Benning ahead of the organisation? 


I don’t agree that Benning is the one that should take all credit or blame for what happens. It’s like Green should be the one to blame for the defensive coach or all credit if the PP is best in the league.

Here’s a hint: literally nobody knows what will come of a single one of the prospects taken in this past draft.

I don’t hate Benning. I just think he’s bad communicator wich is key for a GM.

He might be good at drafting but GM is more than that.

You should only use the word ”hate” if it’s really strong emotions.

It’s not strong emotions when I just give honest answers to people who post to me. 
Benning got credit for being honest so… 

By the way, I don’t believe people are so stupid when they talk about me, Benning and Dahlen so they must be trolling.

How is he a bad communicator? that is also a key to good drafting. Your first response to this post was out of dislike for Benning or you would not have come to assumption it was written to troll those who do not support Benning.

Okay, while I understand that drafting high as compared to drafting later in the round, is different, we should also keep in mind that you should still be able to find 2 nhl players per draft.  I'd expect a star to be found every 3-5 years, and a superstar every 5-7 years at that pace.  The Gillis regime, while successful on ice, were absolutely terrible drafting.  There was no excuse, and it severely hampered the success of the big club and was addressed by a multitude of trades.  Nonis was better, but really whiffed on some of the players he could have gotten.

  Benning's strength does seem to be the draft, and he has delivered what would be a strong pipeline of talent, but the argument is that it could have been better if he wasn't just so bad at pro scouting.  I mean, f#cking terrible.  Like, oh my god, do you even watch NHL games or comprehend how the NHL works.   The player he could have gotten with the picks he's traded away, which are high value return picks, we could have an even better team than we do now, and we wouldn't have to dip as badly into free agency as we do.  He also seems to have forwards and goaltenders down pat, but damn boy, you seriously do not understand defensemen.  Defense is voodoo to Benning.  I don't understand why, he used to be a freaking defensemen, but...hell, can't be good at all 3 positions.

  Benning would probably be better suited to the AGM position, and would be utilized heavily to handle drafting and development.  Then a GM who could get a handle on contracts, ufa signings, pro scouting, and...communication, would serve the club in the GM chair.   I mean really, rain man would probably have an easier time during a press conference.

 

  The GM is responsible for many things, and although you are allowed to have strengths and weaknesses, his strength *drafting* is severely hampered by his pro scouting acumen and his asset management, and ability to figure out the d-core which is basically still a shambles because it seems he doesn't understand the position he's trying to fix.  That being said, when he does make a mistake, and does figure out how to fix it, we rarely see the same mistake again.  That means there's at least a little hope as we go forward, and the team that he's built, right now on paper, is probably the best team he's iced, on paper, during his tenure.  I'll withhold from donating to the firebenning campaign till December of this year.  While hopeful, I am seriously tired of this team not being able to get beyond the fixation on size, 'intangibles', and thinking that we should be able to punch the puck into the net, as opposed to having enough skill to do it the ...I don't know, hockey way.  This season is going to be a make or break year for me, as a fan.  I'm tired...it has been nearly 40 years of cheering for this team.  Please, I hope this is the year we turn a corner.

I wonder if HF Canucks poster Kanucks25 even realizes that his idol teams (Toronto, Colorado, Toronto, Tampa Bay, Toronto, Carolina, Toronto, NYI, and Toronto) also struggled for many years before becoming elite.......although Toronto still hasn’t won a playoff round since 2004.

If you say something ridiculous i don't care if it's pro or anti Benning, it's just exactly that.   I'm not pro or anti Benning and never have been, i'm pro Canucks.   If you have to know i think he's done a good-decent job all things considered if it makes you feel better, we sure could have done worse.   Arrow really i'm not trolling you, but those are some brave statements and i can't tell if your even being serious or not when you make some of these "bold Arrow prediction threads", or if it's just a platform for discussion.   Don't get why we can't just support the team and need to be pro-anti or indifferent.   JB makes mistakes.   Maybe he just made the biggest one of his career, or maybe we win a cup.   It looks good on paper but we won't know for awhile yet will we.   Same as last year letting these guys go (which i was hoping and said he should well before it happened, the bubble was great but it sure showed me that we couldn't win with these vets).   Some of the anti-Benning stuff is pretty delusional.   So is some of the pro Benning stuff too.     I'm a realist.   I see what else is been done and try to evaluate against that.   What exactly was it again?  Poolman a top four D?  i don't even remember.   

 

Edit:  Oh yeah - "under Shaw Poolman will be better then Tanev"

I wonder if HF Canucks poster Kanucks25 even realizes that his idol teams (Toronto, Colorado, Toronto, Tampa Bay, Toronto, Carolina, Toronto, NYI, and Toronto) also struggled for many years before becoming elite.......although Toronto still hasn’t won a playoff round since 2004.

That is alot of toronto teams man. Just only know the one

Leafs suck old smelly socks!  Benning has drafted better than Dumbass and ShanaHAM.
