The NHL trade deadline has come and gone and hockey fans are taking to Twitter to fire away at Vancouver Canucks’ GM Jim Benning.
Here’s some of the most entertaining tweets so far:
I bet the communication breakdown between Dallas & Vancouver on Hamhuis was that both GMs are named Jim. Probably confused Benning. #canucks

Benning: Like let's go to Arby's, deadline isn't for like an hour.
Me: It was at 3 ET.
B: Ohhh so like can we still go to Arby's though?

Jim Benning looks like a kid who just got his pants pulled down in front of the girl he has a crush on. #Canucks

@CamTucker_Metro I'm a French toast guy and waffles are good. I think Benning is a soft boiled egg and marmalade on toast guy

@JustinTrudeau don't you think Benning stinks?

I actually almost feel bad for Benning. In way over his head here. #Canucks

how the Canucks didn't trade a single one of our assets today is beyond me

#Canucks feeling like we are heading towards being the new Edmonton. Ten year rebuild. We are a few years in and we haven't hit bottom yet.

Benning: We didn't get many offers.#Canucks Fans: Well, did you try making offers?

Not everyone was mad however as some expressed possibility in the mass of tweets:
I believe #Canucks management team is the right group to build a new core that will be competitive for many years. It's going to take time.
