    I would welcome you to share your rationale over on the Canucks board. My guess is that your opinion is seen as the outlier, and that @Breakers has the right of it. Would be interesting.

    As to the OP, no one GM seems like he is on the outs this early.

    Chiarelli would be, if he didn't have the coach firing card that he could use at any time

    Isn't it better to fire a GM let's say a month before trade deadline than in June. Let the new GM make evaluate the team and make the trades he thinks are better for the team?

    Replacement options are key here. Bringing other team AGM as your GM is easier in the off-season.

    So who is the first GM fired in April or the off-season?

    I won’t be surprised if the Aquilinis fire Benning. While progress has been made, there have been a bunch of debacles that I’m sure didn’t go unnoticed.

    So pre-season GM hotseat lists always include Benning, but with the Canucks doing well with their fancy young core, which GM currently is in danger?

    Doug Wilson has to be feeling the burn after this start and having 30 million locked up for years in 3 30+ year old defenseman on the decline.

    I wouldn't change a GM mid-season. After game 82 and before the draft is the perfect window.

    GMs rarely get fired at the end of July/ early August too, but that's happened this year already, so why not?
