Players are safe until the Trade Deadline.

 

New GM will have to assess Boeser and Motte for new contracts.

 

Need to revamp the bottom 6 and the D core.  Fix the PP and PK.

 

This season is a write off unless Boudreau can miraculously get the players on the same page and get them to work their butts off.

 

Get some toughness back on the team.

 

Lots of work to be done.

Don't have any vitriol towards Benning or Green, Benning has built a good core to start with starting from nothing. Look forward to what the next GM can build to from this. 

No, you spend your vitriol against other members on this forum instead.

I don’t hear much about Chris Gear to be honest. Another guy with no experience. Hey. At least he’s cheap. 

I wouldn't say no experience, he's been with the organization for a while

But yea.  Hope BB can weed out the toxic in the room.. and trade any one and I mean anyone who is un coachable. Trade them for futures and drafts.  It's time to do the rebuild properly we wasted 8 years to do quick fixes and just managed to fluke  to the playoffs once..

The gin is spectacular, I grabbed three bottles at the release 

 

I'll have to try some of the other Matsui stuff at some point

I have two bottles of the Matsui, bottle of what you have and the white oak.  So good.

 

Let's take it to the whiskey thread

Management by committee? 
 

That’s a weird idea. 

Shockingly, I feel as though that might be highly refreshing.  4 or 5 minda with literal decades I'd experience between them might be able to do a fine job by committee bIF all parties can agree on some things like trades, development processes, drafting etc.

Also check out Hakushu if you can find it. 
 

This was my tasting line up at the distillery. That bottle of Yamazaki 25 is $20k!

I have the Hibiki 17 which I preferred more than the 21.  A fine line up indeed.

 

To the whiskey thread!

That one doesn't appear to be listed on the BC liquor store site :(

 

And goddamn, that looks like quite the experience 

Check Jaks liquor stores in BC they have Ana amazing ability to get some finer whiskeys and scotches.

 

And back to the whiskey thread.

 

We're celebrating.

you know even though i accept Benning dismissals as GM! we cant ignore the prospects he hand picked through the draft! myb Canucks owners could take that into perspective. hire Jim as a scout for picks through the draft! just a thought! I sure hope whoever we hire as our new GM does a better job acquiring players as well as signing players! theres still work that needs to get done to be successful down the road!
