A Multiyear Contract For Vancouver GM Jim Benning

from NHL.com,

Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning signed a multiyear contract Wednesday.

"I'm excited about the direction of our team and the depth and talent we continue to build," Benning said. "I believe we are on the right track and I am pleased to continue the work we started four years ago when we set out to build a championship team."

Benning is in his fourth season as general manager of the Canucks after replacing Mike Gillis, who was fired after the 2013-14 season, and is in the final season of his contract. Before coming to Vancouver, he had spent eight seasons as assistant GM of the Boston Bruins and helped build the team that defeated the Canucks in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.

dang. If Benning is resigned Holland must be next.

I’m sure FS is sobbing somewhere because the Couv was a real model of a franchise and Benning would have been a great replacement for KH.
