Mixed feelings...

I like Ferland and want him to do well, but with the Canucks? Hmm nope.

Anything more than 3 years is probably a bad contract.

Well I hate this. Huge fan of the guy.

From a less emotional perspective, he’s already a high risk signing. The Canucks are probably most likely to sign him because he was most dominant / memorable in games against them. He hasn’t quite replicated that dominance since (although still an effective, offensive player).

Ultimately I think he’s a good player that will make their team better, but there’s a reasonable chance this contract is going to be a mistake for them too.

It will likely be a nice add by the Canucks depending on term and dollars

Guessing it’ll be a massive overpayment, and that Benning expects to get the 2015 Micheal Ferland who doesn’t exist anymore.

Something's gotta give here, they have way too many forwards and still need to sign Boeser too. Only 4.1 mil in cap space even before signing Ferland

Also, Benning gives up a 2nd round pick in the deal, somehow
