with the potential scary signing of Lucic and/or Eriksson to albatross contracts, here's some good news

You're looking at a trade like Horvat or Virtanen, Tanev or Hutton, + pick.

There is no trade that will make any possible sense whatsoever for either team.

Vrbata totally played himself out of a contract.

I'd be surprised if any GM in the lead gives me anything other than a teaser.

AZ will sign him. I don't think he really got a fair shake with the Sedins though. How did something that worked so well one year and not the next?

Benning did a media thing prior to the draft today


-Canucks most likely keeping 5th overall

-Acquiring picks seems difficult, unlikely that anymore will be picked up

-Benning interested in Lucic but is going to wait until after the draft to talk with him

-Benning confident that expansion draft will have little affect on future plans

-No new information on the buyout front

benning was just on the radio again
- confirmed they called and asked about subban. price is high, if a deal would be worked out they would have to talk about it all night. he also said deals like this would depend on whos available at 5
- no interested in taking on contracts like datsyuk or bickell unless those contracts help the team now
-will call lucic's agent after draft and set up a meeting for next week
-trying to acquire more picks for the draft
-new assistant has to be able to run pk and help with faceoffs

Benning on Team 1040:

Talking points:
  • Benning did due diligence on PK but doesn't believe that we will get him
  • Confident that 5th overall will be kept
  • Glad Gudbranson deal was done before the draft because they avoided a betting war
  • Price too high to trade up
  • Sounds unlikely that another top 2 round pick will be acquired
  • Benning is talking to teams about getting another pick, but it will cost a player on a returning contract (duh)
  • Canucks believe that 20 players are top 6 fowards/ 2 defensemen
  • Benning believes that talent drops off severely after first 2 rounds
  • Looking to add major piece in free agency plus some depth signings
  • Benning wants to remain competitive, not interested in picking up bad contracts a la Bickell trade
  • Planning to talk to Lucic after draft
  • Believes Lucic provides valuable piece to team
  • Does not believe Miller Lucic "run in" will be a problem should he sign

I think CBC/Sportsnet is covering it this year. TSN has literally no NHL rights anymore.

CBC & Sportsnet should have it as well as the NHL.com website.

It starts at 7 PM local time (Eastern time this year), so that's 4 PM for us.
