Read today that JB has been informed that he will return for the upcoming season. Because Canucks fans can't ever have nice things...


Best collection of talented youngsters this franchise has ever had, and its all going to be wasted because JB can't learn from his mistakes and ownership can't recognize theirs or too cheap to the correct thing.

The one and only person on the planet who doesn't know Benning is the problem is the one and only person who can actually do something about it.

Those closest to the problem are always the last to see it, but even that might be giving Frank too much cognitive credit.

What he doesn’t realize is that Jimmy Boy is costing him a ton more in bad contracts (at least one of which will HAVE to be bought out) and lost playoff revenue. For a supposedly astute businessman Aquilini has absolutely zero vision. He can’t see beyond the bottom line and immediate results.

Not sure how astute they are. Combination of lucky and dishonest. They have a bad rep in Vancouver of not fully paying contractors, grinding them down after the work is done. Also its pretty hard to have not made oodles of money if your family has a long history of buying real estate in Vancouver. You can't lose at that game.

Canuck's sign Ian Clark for 5 years. I am so down on this organization I was 99% sure he was gone, that the Nucks would never get this right.

You're not alone. Wow. They got something right... Glad that he has the same term as Demko.

Brad Shaw as Associate Coach, formerly from Columbus was also a good signing.

Newell Brown is out.

I have mixed feelings about this as I think he did ok despite that fact that the team couldn't practice as much, and they didn't have Petey in the last half of the season.

Baumer and King stay.

Seems like they needed a change because they couldn't come back with virtually the identical coaching and management after a last placed finish. Change for the sake of change.

Newell Brown is a great coach. He'll get scooped up pretty quickly.
