The trade pisses me off to this day and, IMO, is Benning's stupidest trade by a mile.

First, he traded Kesler
Quote:
"[Ryan] just felt he needed a fresh start, and quite frankly we don't want somebody that doesn't want to be here," Benning said. "We're going to acquire high-quality people that are going to come in here and want to work hard for one another, so we didn't give it much thought. We would have liked to keep him, but his mind was made up, so we did the best we could in the situation."
Okay, fine, he didn't want to be here, there was only 1 trade option. We got fleeced, whatever, them's the breaks.

Then, later on that day, he trades Garrison, hometown boy, alongside a 7th round pick ... for the 50th overall pick.



And offers up this gem ...
Quote:
"The Jason move was we're trying to get a little bit younger on the back end, so Luca gives us youth on the back end," Canucks general manager Jim Benning said on a media conference call.


Here's all the things that were wrong with this trade from my perspective:
- Benning completely contradicted himself by saying he traded Kesler so quickly because he didn't want to be here and then turned around and asked a hometown guy who wanted to be here to waive his no-trade clause.
- Garrison was a prime-aged (29) top 4 defenseman.
- Garrison led the team's defensive corps in scoring the previous season (33 points) despite a career-low shooting percentage (3.9% vs. 6.5% career average at the time)
- Garrison had 3 years left on his front-loaded contract. Cap hit $4.6M with an average salary of $3.5M over those 3 seasons and only $1.5M in signing bonuses.
- He ADDED a 7th round pick to get the 50th overall pick.
- He thought Luca Sbisa made Garrison expendable.



I completely lost faith in Benning at that point. He has continued to prove he has zero sense of player value.

lol twitterverse is saying Benning interested in signing Russell

a shitty, undersized dman with shitty possession numbers who can't defend fuck all
pretty much Bartkowski all over again

Benning can't GM, the guy should just step down to a scout and never be allowed near any GM decisions in the future

I heard that on 1040 this morning but they also think they are going to try to inquire a d by trade and use free agency to go after a forward.

i'm a little scared of what they'd do if they tried to get a Dman via trade

word is McCann is on the block but with Dim Jim's abilities, i'm scared he'd trade McCann + low pick for some team's shit defensive prospect

How can a 19 year old center be on the block? The kid did pretty well in his first year for being thrown off the deep end. Give him a year in Utica next year and lets see what he can do.

i'm ok with trading McCann as long as its for a legit defensive prospect.
But if its this current management orchestrating a trade, i think i'd be happier with them just keeping their prospects.


side note, after hearing of or seeing Laine's performance at the World's would you give up Boeser/2016 1st/2017 1st for WPG's 2nd this year?
someone asked me this a while back and it was a resounding no, but after seeing Laine play, the guy does look like a legit NHL ready scoring machine. The size, skill and shot is honestly drawing some pretty fair comparison to Ovi

Benning could go off the NHL17 player value system and probably make decent player assessments prior to trades

Easy no. Looks like 2 top 5 picks and a steal in boeser. While laine played well for an 18year old his points were inflated against weak teams:
Belarus 1G 3A, Germany 1G 3A, Hungary 1A, France 1G 1A, Denmark quarters 1G.
3G 8A against those teams compared to traditional hockey countries..
Canada 0, USA 0, SVK 1A, Russia semis 1A, Canada final 0
2A only

That's boeser(looks like a top 6 forward atm) pld/tkachuk (1c/top6 pwf) and the chance at patrick (top line player) or the Swedish dman(1d potential)

Please jim, for Fuck sake, give McCann more time!

Also, may be to early to tell, but I think the worst one so far is giving up forsling for potatoes.
