    The proof will be the on-ice product.  While I like the moves that Benning has made, I doubt that this team can make the playoffs until 2016-17, at the earliest.  The West is simply too stacked with Cup favourites.  If you look at the playoff teams, it's hard to imagine any of the 8 from last year having a drop-off which would allow the other teams to squeeze in at #7 or 8.  Maybe the Canucks can tank for McDavid or Eichel.

    They won't make the playoffs but they will be relevant again. I like what Benning has done there.

    Not even Jim Benning (really, who cares about Jim Benning) can save that putrid franchise and it's disgusting fans.  I hope every single Canucks fan sits and waits but never sees a Cup parade in town...and then the team moves to Bolivia.
