Benn can't be moved unless he wants to go. He can't be sent down to the minors, traded, or anything, without his approval.

Vancouver is on a nice 4 game win streak.

Ok, but if this season is tanked, you're down to the question of who to trade for future help. It's not about blaming Faksa but looking at him as one of the few trade pieces with actual value.


He's got like 1/10th the value of Benn. I mean, WE all know he's slow and whatnot, but a majority of the GMs in this league get rock-hard throbbing erections from the term "power forward."

Just wait for someone to score 3-4 goals in a week then trade that guy and hope you get something half decent like we did with Shore last year.

Scoreless, and it's well paid. Pens got the most dangerous scoring chances though the Stars were not that bad.

This team is so *fargin'* slow. That turnover a minute into the second came right to Jamie at our blue line and should’ve been a 2 on 1 break, instead two guys caught up and Jamie lazily dumped it in to no one

Stay the *f-bomb* out of the penalty box. That PK was a nightmare again. Crazy that the Stars are above 80% in such situation.

At least Gurianov has some speed, but it's written in the Holy Scriptures that he'll never score a goal in the NHL.

They better score again and pad the lead a bit during this stretch while they're looking like an actual hockey team, because they'll collapse after the first mistake.

What a *fargin'* mess. Puck was on Lindell’s stick and he lost it. Then it was just running around. Had four Stars around the net, yet no one can tie up the guy in the slot?

Sounds about right. They won't touch anyone who wanders into the slot, when they should be breaking ankles and fingers for even thinking of going in there.

I think it's fair to say that getting the loser point would be a huge victory.

It reminds me of our D league team where we'd be better off declining the penalty so we don't have to be on the PP.

Lindell needs to not be on the PP. He might be good at tipping the puck, but he doesn't have any of the other skills necessary.

Speaking of d league play... watching Gurianov receive a pass is quite an adventure.

*f-bomb* this team sucks. Four Stars go to the boards? What are they doing?

Jesus, Benn has no puck handling skills anymore. WTF happened to his entire *fargin'* game? Speed I get, but the rest? Does he just not practice anymore?

Among the 59 offsides so far, I pretty loved the one during this PP. No hurry nor pressure, and 3 guys managed to be offside at the same time. Great piece of art.
