Today the Canucks announced they have traded Adam Clendening, Nick Bonino, AND a second rounder to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Brandon Sutter and a third round pick.
How does this trade make any sense? What the hell? Did Bonino not want to be here?
The Kesler trade does look like a disaster now considering he was that guy who came the other way.
I do not know much about Brandon Sutter, but looking at his stats, he doesn’t look much better or maybe even slightly better than Bonino.
Throw in Clendening who is a decent prospect and played well when called up here as well as the second round pick when we have the possibility of finishing low?
Canucks fans, this guy may be reaching the Mactavish point. I don’t get this move at all and will say it time and time again.
If Brandon Sutter becomes a godsend on the third or second line while Bonino and Clendening do nothing, okay. But the chances of those scenarios all happening are extremely low.
What an odd move and I’m starting to lose faith in Benning.
