CanucksArmy Roundtable: Three More Years!

In case you somehow missed it, the Canucks have come to terms on a contract extension with general manager Jim Benning for three seasons, ending speculation about where his future lies.

More Questions Than Answers In the Wake of Jim Benning’s Contract Extension

Just yesterday, the Vancouver Canucks announced that they’d come to terms on a multi-year contract extension for general manager Jim Benning. The team has yet to confirm the length, but Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman is reporting a rumour that it’s a three-year deal that will take Benning through the 2020-21 season.

WWYDW: A Hockey Trade?

With the Ottawa Senators and Los Angeles Kings kicking off trade season last night with a swap of Dion Phaneuf and Nate Thompson for Nick Shore and Marian Gaborik, the hope is that more deals start coming together in short order. In Vancouver, the expectation — or the hope, rather — is that the Canucks…


Cheers & Jeers: February 13th

After two weeks off due to a cold and then a flue (yes, seriously), everyone’s favourite weekly feature is back. That’s right; it’s Cheers & Jeers time.

Are the Aquilinis waiting to see how the deadline goes or have they already made up their mind on Benning — Cole Treleaven (@Coletr11) February 12, 2018 At this point, what’s there left to discuss? Is the organization’s opinion of Canucks general manager Jim Benning going to shift that much because of one trade deadline? I…


CanucksArmy Monday Mailbag: February 12th

@JDylanBurke I'm a bit early for the Monday Mailbag but saw this on Reddit and got intrigued. Could a team do this and circumvent the cap? Are there rules against being a player-coach in the NHL? pic.twitter.com/2JRuH27Dk6 — Dilettante (@DillettantEH) February 9, 2018 I don’t know if there are any specific rules in the CBA…
