So this is what Habs fans will be saying next year.
Yes, and Kapanen won a round this ye....wait
Benning is worse. On paper, Dubas has a decent team he built. Just too bad they are underachieving losers. I mean, it's not entirely Dubas' fault.
Benning is probably just drunk when he shows up at the office. I can't defend him.
Dubas made made very few productive moves as gm of the leafs. Yet so many have some how convinced themselves sthat he's actually a good gm lmao
How do you inheirt a 105 point team and after 3 years still have absolutely nothing to show but failure?
The correct poll option is "both are garbage".
-Bottom 10 of the league in 5 of last 6 years
-Virtanen over Ehlers/Virtanen
-No picks in top 80 last season
-2016 2nd worst team, no 2nd or 4th round pick, no accumualated picks
Its like hes never tanked, never rebuilt - instead spent to the cap, tried to build a contender - and built one of the lousiest teams in sports over the last 6 years
Unbelievably bad record for any sports franchise and somehow hasnt been replaced lol
Its not like any of those things are opinions, absolutely lousy results
And the biggest defense of his last handful of promoters is:
-Former GM Gillis left a mess (Tanev, Edler, Kesler, Sedins, Horvat, Markstrom)
-Covid is the reason for the bad season
-Schedule wasnt fare
Dubas' plan might be flawed, but atleast he has one.
You know I think Dubas is the worst GM ever my reason being is he is what started giving these massive contracts to players that didn't win anything and that started a trend in the NHL which basically screwed every single GM. Now every young super star wants 10+m there first contract and they haven't even sniffed the second round or haven't even made the playoffs.
The reason why every young superstar wants big money now is because that's literally their market value with the higher salary cap. People really need to stop expressing salaries as a raw number but as a percentage of the salary cap. Guys who asked for 6-7 million in the early 2010s would be asking for around 9 nowadays.
Take the Kings for example. Doughty got signed to 11% of the salary cap, before he had ever made it out of the first round. (Around 9 million today). Kopitar got 12% of the salary cap, for playing in a single playoff round. (About 9.8 million today).
One of the greatest players of all time, Ovie, got 19% of the salary cap (Around 15.5 million today!) for also playing in a single playoff round.
The examples I mentioned above ended up pretty damn well for the team that signed them. Here's one that didn't go so good. Dion Phaneuf. Who had never made it past the first round, signed for 13% of the salary cap back in 2008 (10.5 millionish today). Ouch.
For the poll, it's Benning guys, don't be silly lmfao.
Asking me who is better of these two is like asking me which cancer do I prefer
Pretty sure agents love both of these guys.
What's better? No plan or a crappy plan? Went with Benning because I think Dubas's affect on the Leafs will be longer than Benning's on the Canucks.
About the D issue. He got Muzzin and Brodie whom are both top 4 guys, Brodie is a top pairing D. The defence actually wasn't the issue this year. What else can he do? The Hedman's of the world don't exactly grow on trees. He has done a good job with the defence.
