Benning = JFJ? Decent scout becomes the GM of a team, knows he needs to rebuild but ownership won't allow it. His moves looked bad until it came out that ownership wouldn't let him do his job.

Benning is 52. Should be old enough to know how to play power politics if Aquilinis were indeed blocking him. god fucking damit. demoralizing day for Vancouver.

Any source that Aquilini veto trades?
If so, seriously need to boycott and never buy tickets/go to games again.

As a long suffering Canucks fan, today's trade deadline is like a kick in the groin.
-so much pain.

I also caught a nasty flu today thanks to some jerk at work who does not take sick leave.

The only consolation is that I cannot go watch the Islanders game with a buddy.
-spared from the shit show tomorrow.

That's actually an excellent comparison.

Say what you want about him but he's one of the most well connected guys with the Canucks

Aqualinis are so against the galardi group they purposely would throw their GM under the bus during trade deadline? If this is true aqualinis are a fucking joke and terrible business people! I mean by doing this they are pissing ie us Canucks fans and screwing their own team! This is just a trickle down effect to us fans who buy tickets and murchandise! I for one am boycotting this shit till they give their heads a shake!

No surprises, they threw MG under the bus by pinning the torterella hire on him, then turning around and threatening legal action against media outlets that report this was an ownership hire and calling the hire an incompetent move.

By all accounts they are excellent if not ruthless business ppl. But when sport/winning/ego become involved with a play toy that is a professional sports team, it leads to rather illogical decisions ie. Not letting the ppl you have hired to do the job you are paying them to do.

I can't see Linden's legacy but being affected negatively the way things are going, which is rather unfortunate. He's a smooth talker, but you can only talk yourself out of so much bs.

Linden's legacy is already in the shitter with the past two years
He did do a few things right, the food options inside arena is one, those townhall meetings to simply connect with the fans that adore him is another

but somewhere along the lines, thats only to please a sentimental part of the fans. Results matter, performance matters. This is a business after all.

Ownership, Management, and the staff(team) didnt get the job done.

I read on reddit that the city needs to do a boycott similar to what Liverpool fans did by staging a walkout in game... that probably won't happen here, but we can all turn to yelp reviews right?!?!?!?!?!?!....

as great as that sounds, that's never gonna happen
this city just doesn't have that kind of backbone

that'd be great to see though...can u imagine, midway through the 2nd period and everyone just walks out and its an empty arena the rest of the game?
It'll kinda be like a Coyotes game when they're losing...except the fans there aren't actually making a statement

Ray Ferraro quote from TSN Trade Center

"They’re an aging team with a collection of depreciating assets that they should move. I just don't understand what this team is doing at the moment"

That walkout was over ticket prices (which succeeded in lowering them for next year), but then again the same idea could be applied here with how much management is alienating fans. I don't know if the team wants to tank for a higher draft pick, or head into the playoffs and end up getting swept in the first round and taking a middling spot in the draft.

Doesn't help that it's a fucking library in the arena after Whitecaps supporters got kicked out for trying to run chants because someone complained. Hell in Europe they have standing sections for stuff like that. But no, Rogers Arena is overpriced shit and suits on BBM for most of the game in the lower bowl. There's no chance a protest can be staged when there isn't a coherent supporter's group in the city.
