Jim Benning added depth to the Canucks this past offseason, and it’s paying off now when they need it most

We understand that talking about the “little things” is a bit of a faux pas in the post-Loui Eriksson era of Vancouver Canucks hockey. But so long as they’re not attached to a $6 million contract, sometimes the little things really can make a big difference, and that’s definitely true for the 2021/22 Canucks as they tear through the final stages of the season.

A Thank You Note to Jim Benning for All He Did for the Flames

After weeks, months, years of speculation, the Vancouver Canucks finally made their major shakeup yesterday, firing both head coach Travis Green and general manager Jim Benning. Benning joined the Canucks as GM after the 2013-14 season, a promotion over his previous role as assistant GM with the Boston Bruins, helping them to a Stanley Cup in 2011. Benning was also an integral part in the Tyler Seguin for Loui Eriksson trade that sent the young center to Dallas where he became a reliable high 30’s goal scorer. Definitely the right guy for your team to hire.

Vancouver Canucks Fire GM Jim Benning

The day has finally come. The Vancouver Canucks have fired GM Jim Benning and assistant GM John Weisbrod, according to Vancouver-based journalist Irfaan Gaffar. The majority of the team's draft picks taken by Benning and his staff outside of the first round failed to make a sizeable impact at the big-league level, with a few notable first-round busts, as well. And, perhaps most egregiously, Benning plunged the Canucks into a salary cap pit from which they may never escape.
