So how much space does Vancouver have to re-sign Pettersson and Hughes?
Really don't see why they prioritized re-signing him instead of trading him for whatever futures they could get. Aquilini's just letting Benning screw up what could be a great young team.
You guys don’t understand how much it f***ing sucks being a Canucks fan. Holy f***
Benning is bad. He's ruining great scouting.
Sabres fan here. Hi.
No expansion draft protection. Man this deal is as bad as Bryson DeChambeau is playing right now.
I hate being a Canucks fan. I want out
I’m seriously considering protesting outside Rogers Arena with a fire Benning sign. This f***ing sucks.
But you could not sign Toffoli for 4*4.25?
Another idiotic signing! Makes zero sense.
Why does Benning love his bottom six guys so much
Its not even a debate who the worst GM in the League is anymore
If there wasn't a pandemic and the salary cap goes up steadily by 2-4M every year, this deal isn't bad because you're banking on him being the player he was last year than the player he is this year. What makes no sense is that there was no reason to do this right now in a flat cap. Pearson had 0 leverage and wasn't going to get that from really any team in the league.
You could put him on waivers today and he would pass waivers because of the contract.
Because they are in a position where they SHOULD sell
Another F’n trade protection clause given out
didn’t this idiot in the off season literally admit his NTC’s screwed them over in the offseason
and the first thing he does is give out another one.
So... I wont pretend to be a Canucks cap expert. How do they plan to get Hughes and Pettersson signed?
I’m so thankful for Dubas - when I read stuff like this.
Do any Canuck's fans approve of this signing?
Dim Jim at it again.
Even if they sign them, how are they going to improve the team? This has the makings of a treadmill team unless they hit gold on an upcoming prospect.
Its kind of incredible how good, in general, Vancouver's scouting has been under Benning and how bad they've been with free agents.
The sheer stupidity of hanging onto mediocre players is baffling.
Just love paying top dollar for 3rd and 4th liners.
I hope Benning stays GM in Vancouver for a long time. Love these bottom six signings. Excellent.
