Canucks get good value (and a great beard) with Jordie Benn signing

Canucks get good value (and a great beard) with Jordie Benn signing

When the Canucks chose not to give Ben Hutton a qualifying offer, it opened up a hole on the left side of their defence. While the left side is where the Canucks have the bulk of their prospect depth on defence, including top-ten picks Quinn Hughes and Olli Juolevi, it seemed unlikely that they would want to enter the season with two rookies on the blue line. Even if Juolevi didn’t start the season with the Canucks, that would have meant someone like Ashton Sautner, Guillaume Brisebois, or Josh Teves in the opening night lineup; that’s not the end of the world, but not ideal...
