Last thread creeping up to 1k. Guddy still can't defend.
Yeah but what about his play without the puck.
I love how McCann is considered junk yet we have to be “patient” with Virtanen.
McCann since being dealt to the Panthers is scoring at a higher clip than Virtanen who some of you consider better than Ehlers.
Erik gudbranson is AHL calibre.
Throwback to this Imac gem from a year ago
If we could have gotten a 2nd and 4th for him last year, Benning should be immediately fired. That's flat out negligent.
Do you mean after he's given it away, or after it's been turned over because of a clearing attempt that never made it out of the zone?
Only right move, if there are no takers for him, is the Gagner treatment.
Admit your mistake. Cut your losses and move him to the minors.
Benning's motto: Buy high, sell low.
YEAH BUT HES NOT A CANUCKS
please bring this back, it was gold
McCann is paper soft and bad without the puck, Virtanen is still effective without the puck and very much a physical presence even though I’d like to see him hitting more understand why he picks his spots more intelligently. There’s no comparison, Jake is way better.
We also turned down miles wood and draft picks
He really isn't. McCann is the better scorer that plays the more important position.
Wait what? Source?
If that’s true, what in the flying ****.
botchford said it on tsn 1040
If I was the coach I would do these pairings.
I honestly do not know why Gudbranson is playing ahead of Stecher. When Gudbranson and Tanev were both out last season. Stecher played well with Edler. Tanev and Hutton that pairing had played well in the past. With those two defence pairings, I honest think Canucks might even be in a playoff spot right now.
Gudbranson pretty much gave Ari two points last game
Thats really not his game tho
Hes right tho, SCREW THE PANTHERS
It must be true if Botchford said it.
I don't know why Gudbranson is playing ahead of anyone, even McEneny or Brisebois. That's a brutal trade and thinking that we could get DeBrincat with that pick (and we have to assume we would pick BPA, since Benning is the draft guru, right? RIGHT?)...
“He really isn’t”
You saying Virtanen isn’t good defensively / without the puck or McCann is?
Also Wing is the more important position to add to on a team with EP40 Bo Sutter and Beagle but nice try
If we had McCann we wouldn’t need beagle and his stupid contract. Also you can never have too many centers as most centers can also play wing.
McCann is also better offensively than half the players on this team. And specifically Jake while being younger and playing less mins and less power play ice time
Who cares McCann is a liability, god forbid he ever plays center for us in a bottom 6 role, look at what Florida fans are saying about him! He’s playing himself off a terrible Florida team!. He’s got no grit no toughness and question marks on his character. He would be immediately benched by Travis Green and rightfully so!
Yes, but that's because the picks were not offered the eve of the draft. People need to understand, Benning has a very clever strategy of never looking to acquire draft picks unless we are the day before and/or day of the draft. He prefers to wait until the other teams really have set their prices for these picks at their very highest level, so he can quite correctly attempt to acquire the most expensive overpriced pick possible.
