My take, once it was understood that the variants were 40% more contagious (january), the NHL protocols needed to be updated and made more stringent. Nice thought piece on the protocols here. https://www.vancouverisawesome.com/canu ... ks-3603850

Tanner Pearson gets 3 years, $3.25M AAV. This team didn't need another mid guy signed long-term. Thumbs down.

Why not trade him and try and sign in the off season? I could see this if he was a significant core piece but while a good player he is not someone you build around.

NTC 1st year, LTM of 7 teams in 2nd year.

On a good team he'd be good 3rd line player but at his age will likely show regression. Seems a bit high when considering his age and what he brings and when considering flat cap. On the other hand compared to Beagle, Roussel, Sutter, Ferland, Eriksson it does actually seem like an improvement in Benning's negotiations.

From Dayal, the Canucks let Tyler Toffoli, who's 6th in the NHL with 19 goals walk at $4.25M.

Now they're re-signing Tanner Pearson, who has 11 points in 33 games at $3.25M.

This doesn't seem like ideal asset management putting it mildly.

lol at "ideal" I'd be happy.........well not happy but somewhat less discontented if Benning could improve to middle of the pack, which this seems to be. It's a poor decision which is better than the many dreadful ones that came before.

Teacher Report: After an extremely slow start Jimmy is showing belated signs of improvement and if this trend continues I expect him to pass this course with perhaps as high a grade as C-.

Fuck, fuck, fuck...............I can't believe just one post back I was generously consider Benning was improving and offerered him a C minus rating.

If this is true, then again its a big F for failing. And with Benning I'm 99% sure it is true.

Quote:
And we haven’t even talked about the 2021 Expansion Draft yet. If the reporting of Thomas Drance is to be believed — and it almost always is — Pearson and Canucks’ management have a handshake agreement that Pearson will be protected from selection by the Seattle Kraken.

He’ll join Pettersson, Boeser, Miller, and Bo Horvat in occupying five of Vancouver’s seven protection slots for forwards. That leaves two slots for all of Motte, Virtanen, Gaudette, Lind, Gadjovich, Zack MacEwen, and anyone else they add or retain to fight for.


No way in hell the Nucks should be giving up any of these players for Pearson at this time of their development.

What do you expect from Mr. Yes Man? This is an inside job. The owner absolutely loves the guy. Like why not do a one year deal and test where the market goes? They are probably spooked by losing every single free agent last year. Pearson isn't even a special teams player so there's not a lot of added value there, proving once again that this league buys into the championship pedigree fallacy and none more than Jimbo (see also Beagle, Holtby, Toffoli ...oh wait.)

What a bunch of dumbaases. Like what are Travis Green and Ian Clarke thinking right now? "Fuck this lot" - I bet.

Let's go Kraken! :can:

good grief, he knowingly paid full sticker price? This is not the Aquilini way at all. They screw over contractors on work done, they didn't get rich by being fair and honest..........lol

I think paid a premium well above sticker price and for 3 years no less. They talked to his agent and determined that? :lol: What a joke. Middle 6 winger heading towards bottom 6 guy 1/3 of a point per game player.
