I had never really learned just how much I have come to hate Trevor Linden as when I started seeing these election ads.

When he comes on screen at the end and says I Vite..... Do you? I just want to fucking throw something through the tv.

If you watch any highlights during the NHL app those are the only commercials that play. I want to throw my damn phone across the fucking room when his stupid face comes on.

I still don't understand the broad support for firing Gillis.

Pedan's agent: I sure hope Pedan gets qualified.



Benning: Here's a 300% raise in the minors and an NHL salary above your qualifying offer.

What an utterly strange and ultimately pointless signing.

Jim Benning is the master of the unforced error.

Thought for sure we would be turfing him.

I gave the GM a pretty easy ride in this edition, as he is but a pawn in the Game of Middle Fingers:

Welp, the guy who was offering purportedly insider information around the draft last year is saying that Dallas wants Mittelstadt, particularly because they know Vancouver covets him, and has also confirmed (to the extent he is accurate, obviously) our suspicions that Benning has Liljegren ranked as his top defenseman.

It seems an increasingly solid bet that the Canucks are going to be repeating what they did last year – acting like the smartest guy in the room while they let consensus top player available slip to a position that no one ever thought he'd make it to.

Yeah, we sure wouldn't want that McDavid/Matthews type of skill.

No music this week, but still some rhyming:
