Not a bad start for the new regime. Some quick thoughts:
*Nick Bonino is surprisingly lethal off the rush. Perhaps owing to the fact that defencemen and goalies know there is an actual possibility he could pass to a linemate. Refreshing to see for a second line centre.
*In Ryan Miller, the Canucks have an all-star goalie who a) wants to be here and b) is firmly entrenched on the depth chart. Again, a mind-blowing rendition of Canucks hockey.
*Radim Vrbata just might have saved the Sedins careers. Another 50-point season from Henrik and he likely would not have been long for the Markus Naslund treatment in Vancouver.
A month in and Benning's got his fingerprints all over the Canucks' success thus far. Among his three highest-profile acquisitions, the early returns have either met or exceeded expectations. As demonstrated above, they also happen to be extremely fun to watch.
