Will Canucks follow Panthers and retire Roberto Luongo's No. 1? And should they?

Will Canucks follow Panthers and retire Roberto Luongo's No. 1? And should they? It only makes sense that Roberto Luongo’s No. 1 sweater will never be worn by another Florida Panther, as he’s the best player they’ve ever had. The not-quite-in-Fort Lauderdale team announced this week that the goalie’s sweater will rise to the BB&T Center rafters next March. Luongo, who retired at the end of June, played just over 10 seasons for the Panthers, eclipsing the eight he spent in Vancouver. Including his short time with the New York Islanders, who drafted him, Luongo played 20 seasons in all. He is second in NHL history in games played by a goalie (1,044), third in wins (489) and ninth in shutouts (77).

It is not hard to find critics of the Vancouver Canucks’ owners. You can start with any of the general managers and presidents who have worked for Francesco Aquilini’s family, although getting former senior employees to talk on the record may be difficult, complicated by ongoing career aspirations in the National Hockey League.

The Aquilinis are highly-involved local owners who, at times, pay too much attention to what people outside their hockey operations department think of them and their team – in a market going into its 50th year in the NHL and still aching for its first Stanley Cup.

Long - term plans include the overall goals of the company set four or five years in the future and usually are based on reaching the medium-term targets. Short- term planning looks at the characteristics of the company in the present and develops strategies for improving them.

Leaders are owners . They think long term and don’t sacrifice long - term value for short-term results. They act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just their own team. If you show ownership , you will: Ignore boundaries between jobs and departments if necessary to get your project done.

The Canucks haven’t won a playoff series since losing the 2011 Cup final. The current team has missed the playoffs four straight seasons.

This makes the Aquilinis’ – Francesco, Luigi’s eldest son, is the managing partner – three-year contract extension for general manager Jim Benning both surprising and impressive.

The greatest threat to any major rebuild in professional sports is ownership. Do the guys paying the bills have the patience and fortitude to suffer the pain required to demolish and start over? Will their bankroll and ego allow it?

Trevor Linden, the co-architect of the Canucks’ rebuild, endured four seasons before leaving last summer as president of hockey operations, shoved out after an ideological clash with the Aquilinis. It was clear then that the owners preferred Benning, Linden’s hire as GM, over Linden.

Report: Canucks extend GM Jim Benning beyond 2019-20 season

Report: Canucks extend GM Jim Benning beyond 2019-20 season The Vancouver Canucks have inked general manager Jim Benning to a contract extension that will keep him with the club beyond the 2019-20 campaign, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman. The 56-year-old executive, who was hired by the team ahead of the 2014-15 season, was heading into the final year of his current contract, according to Friedman. Benning joined the club during a transition period and made his mark after shipping out veteran pieces Ryan Kesler and Kevin Bieksa to the Anaheim Ducks. Benning has added talented young pieces through the draft including Brock Boeser, Elias Pettersson, and Quinn Hughes.

Strategic planning is a management tool that guides your business to better performance and long - term success—and it' s not as intimidating or difficult as it sounds.

But it was unclear until now just how much Francesco Aquilini believed in Benning.

A contract extension, first reported Friday by Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, was anticipated. The Canucks finally tilted their trajectory upwards last season, propelled by a new core built around young stars Elias Pettersson, Bo Horvat and Brock Boeser. And Aquilini had said in a letter to season-ticket holders last spring: “I’m confident we’re on the right path.”

So Benning, who said in June that he wanted a new contract but hasn’t spoken much about it since, wasn’t going into the 2019-20 season on an expiring deal. He was getting an extension. But nobody foresaw what is believed to be a three-year extension, which would give the 56-year-old general manager a total of four more years under contract for the Aquilinis.

The Canucks will officially announce Benning’s extension next week.

Report: Benning's extension with Canucks is for 3 years

Report: Benning's extension with Canucks is for 3 years The Vancouver Canucks have signed general manager Jim Benning to a three-year contract extension, reports Sportsnet's Iain MacIntyre. A report of Benning's extension surfaced on Friday but the length was unknown at the time. Benning was heading into the final year of his previous deal, so the extension will keep him in Vancouver through the 2022-23 season. The Canucks made the postseason in Benning's first year at the helm during the 2014-15 campaign, but they've missed the playoffs in the four years since. Benning is responsible for rebuilding the organization's farm system by drafting the likes of Brock Boeser, Elias Pettersson, and Quinn Hughes.

Long term incentive plan or LTIP is a type of executive compensation that typically comes in the form of performance shares or matching shares of the company. In the United States, these plans were used heavily since Internal Revenue Code Section 162(m) passed

entire and sole ownership of the property in question. Despite the advantages that come from tax efficient estate planning and cost saving passing of valuable assets to one’ s intended beneficiaries, joint tenancy is not always appropriate and one’ s circumstances need to be accurately assessed with

For context, consider that if Benning is still in charge at the end of his deal, his nine-season run as GM would put him one year away from matching Pat Quinn for the longest tenure in Canucks’ history, one of the few genuine franchise icons, who ran the hockey team for previous owners from 1987 until 1997.

Quinn’s teams made the playoffs seven times, and went to the 1994 Stanley Cup Final. Benning’s teams have made the playoffs once. And that 101-point campaign in 2014-15 during Benning’s first season was largely fool’s gold, the last gallant gasp of the dying team he inherited. It muddied the Canucks’ priorities and delayed their rebuild.

The four seasons since then don’t mean Benning has done a poor job, although he has made mistakes. He has failed to maximize some assets before losing them, and several of his free-agent signings and a couple of his trades have been colossal flops.

Only now are the Canucks facing the salary-cap consequences of the $36-million signing of Loui Eriksson in 2016, and the acquisition a year later of Sam Gagner, who was turned into this summer’s buyout of Ryan Spooner.

GM Benning: Canucks looking for common ground with Boeser

GM Benning: Canucks looking for common ground with Boeser Fresh off signing a three-year contract extension, Canucks general manager Jim Benning addressed the main question on every Vancouver fan's mind: What's the latest with restricted free agent Brock Boeser? "I am continuing to talk with (Boeser's agent) Ben Hankinson," Benning said, per "We are trying to get some common ground. None of the RFA's have signed yet, so we're going to continue to work with him, and I am hopeful we can get something done here before camp so he is there for the start of camp." Vancouver's training camp is scheduled to begin Sept. 13, with preseason games starting on the 16th.

Short- term planning addresses immediate needs such as covering short-term expenses. Medium- term planning covers goals that are near enough to plan , but far enough to unfold in unforeseen ways. Long - term planning is an expression of your company' s vision, and its overall mission and purpose.

When the Canucks eventually agree on a new contract with Boeser, part of the NHL’s great unsigned restricted free-agent class of 2019, Benning and his spartan staff will have to prove it can dance the salary-cap limbo.

But considering what was inherited five years ago, Benning (and Linden) rebuilt the Canucks almost from scratch.

Horvat was the top pick of former GM Mike Gillis’ final draft but started with the Canucks under Benning and ex-coach Willie Desjardins as a 19-year-old. Benning drafted Boeser 23rd in 2015, the same year he took Adam Gaudette 149th. Pettersson was a fifth-overall pick, Quinn Hughes seventh, goalie Thatcher Demko 36th.

The Canucks are convinced that Russian power forward Vasili Podkolzin, the 10th pick in June, will join their core group in two years after his Kontinental League contract expires.

Trades for Tanner Pearson, Josh Leivo, Sven Baertschi and J.T. Miller have improved the Canucks’ forward depth, and the July 1 signings of defencemen Tyler Myers and Jordie Benn will make Vancouver better if – big if – veterans Alex Edler and Chris Tanev stay healthy. The Canucks struck on college free-agent Troy Stecher, and Benning appears to have hired the right coach in Travis Green.

The Canucks still have to improve at least another 12 points to get back to the post-season, but they have a lot of the right pieces to do so.

When Benning snared free-agent winger Micheal Ferland on July 10, he appeared to be all-in on next season. It looked like 2019-20 would be a referendum on the general manager’s reign, a make-it-or-break-it year.

It may be still for Benning and Green. But the Aquilinis have given their general manager more time than anyone expected to complete the job he started.

Ben Kuzma: Canucks hoping to get Boeser contract extension done before camp opens.
There’s reason to believe a Brock Boeser contract extension should be reached before the Vancouver Canucks open training camp Sept. 13 in Victoria. Not only are there favourable comparables and continuing dialogue to establish parameters where the Canucks’ right-winger slots in amid a sea of superlative NHL restricted free agents, there’s motivation for a healthy Boeser to take his game to another level with a strong start this fall.
