Dahlin's assist yesterday was his 31st point of the season, tying him with Jim Benning & Doug Bodger for the third-most ever recorded by an NHL defenseman before his 19th birthday.

I’m just now boarding my plane to Fort Benning, Georgia heading off to basic training. I can’t thank everyone enough that has been apart of this process. I love all my love ones and hope everyone is doing well! I’ll be back.....

I don't think anything could possibly sum up the Jim Benning era better than having a 19-year-old goalie in the system who's promising enough to start in an NHL game; but lacking the foresight to prevent it from happening
Terrible spot to put Dipietro in, and this should be a huge emphasis on Benning’s incompetence. This should not be happening in a playoff race. If JB can’t get a 3rd string goalie, how can he find top 4 defensemen or top 6 forwards?
@fr_aquilini@lyft@Uber An NHL goalie would also come in handy. Here’s what the management of one of your other businesses would be doing tomorrow if they managed their business like Benning & Co have managed the Canucks goaltending position: they’d be shoveling snow!!!
@canucksplace We're in trouble regardless of if its DiPietro or an AHL goalie. This isn't on Benning, there arent many teams that can get past their back-up and be ok. Actually there aren't many teams who can do okay with their starter out.
@PG_Canuck Maybe they have fond memories of a 23 year old who played hard and still had potential? Even if we got a 5th, I'd respect Benning for just taking the L and moving on. Keeping him is just refusing to admit you had it wrong.
It's just a poor argument made by anti-benning haters. I cant fathom how much you hate the guy to argue something like this. That's not to say signing an AHL goalie is a bad move, it just changes nothing. I would prefer DiPietro to stay up while he can, there's value there. https://t.co/vgVPWQYZpj
The thing that could have changed here was
1) Benning signing another AHL goalie
2) Benning trades valuable assets for a borderline NHL goalie (don't talk to me if you think this.) https://t.co/hZZictjQJj
I don't want to see the #Canucks make the playoffs anytime soon. We have keep collecting talent through the draft and develop them any good organization would. I would start on defence. Benning are you listening? Edler & Tanev are D-O-N-E
@alittlecanuck I never said it was bennings fault, i said it was absurd we were in this situation, especially when benning and the Utica staff have supposedly been looking for such a goalie to help Utica and act as a back up for vancouver as early as January 5th
@taj1944 He already did a piss-poor effort turning an asset into a puny 7th round draft pick; now rest of his gm brethren are going for Benning’s lunch money; guess giving away assets for the Benning fan club is just part of the initiation... I lived thru Jack Gordon’s years & this sux
@amccutcheon41@SatiarShah Lol. So play Markstrom tonight and risk him being out a couple weeks? Makes sense... if anyone is to blame for this situation, it’s Benning, not Green. He had no other choice. #TheGoof
@thegoldenmuzzy Benning to blame for playing and the defense and team for not showing up and handing sharks prime scoring opportunities and even a goal. Completely unacceptable. He made some great saves and played pretty well considering the cards he was dealt
@alittlecanuck@hfan_44 It negatively impacts DiPietro because the 67's have 3 games this week he could be starting and learning in. The other guy is right, the fact weve had to use a 19 year old prospect is absurd and Benning and the rest of the staff know that
@NeilGroom1@CrownRoyal22 Okay. Just so were clear here - your bar for Benning is "he did the same thing as an expansion franchise when they only had like 30 players under contract and had 4 goalie injuries"
That's a pretty low bar.
@scottcwheeler He shouldn’t have been in that situation to begin with. Benning could have signed Leighton to an NHL deal, kept Nilsson or traded a pick for someone cheap. Gross incompetence from both Benning and Green
Benning and co should be embarrassed. They’ve had months to find a 3rd goalie. Mikey deserves better, and our D sold him out over and over again. Nights like this remind me why I think we aren’t a playoff team.
Both Jim Benning and Travis Green should be ashamed of themselves. A) Nilsson was a competent back up & trading him was stupid, B), you can find a cheap third goalie & leave DiPietro in junior, and C) Markstrom is healthy & the Canucks didn’t play last night.
@Canucks nation take a deep breath. This is still a development year. Chill out folks. Can’t believe how many people turned on JB after a few hours. Benning is doing a great job. We’re not winning the Cup anytime soon. Enjoy the ride. Mikey will be better off this, come back 💪
