Congratulations to new Vancouver GM Jim Benning!

Hooray for Bruins hockey!
Hooray for Bruins hockey!

There are many words of praise for Jim Benning, as he departs for Vancouver.

  • Peter Chiarelli and Cam Neely wish Jim Benning and his family well. [BostonHerald]
  • Benning had been the favorite candidate as far as the Canucks' new President of Hockey Operations Trevor Linden was concerned. [VancouverSun]
  • A few things will need Benning's immediate attention. [TheProvince]
  • It is very likely Jarome Iginla is as eager to stay in Boston as the Bruins are to retain him, according to Pierre McGuire. [WEEI]
  • The Kings prove that there is still success in the Bruins model. The Bruins' failure was in performance and dictating the style of play in the Canadiens series. [WEEI]
  • I want to play with this TD Garden model made of Legos! [DaysOfY'orr]
  • The annual Beard-A-Thon has raised whiskers... I mean nearly $90K... to benefit the Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation and the Boston Bruins Foundation. It is not too late to donate. [Bruins.NHL]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Both Daniel Carcillo and Brandon Prust may face supplemental discipline as things got testy last night in New York. [ProHockeyTalk]
  • Get over it already, Michel Therrien. [ProHockeyTalk]
  • Heaven nose there will be a blizzard of outraged Habs fans replying to this tweet. [@FreezingKiwi]
  • Team Finland and Team Czech Republic have a date on Saturday, as both Team Canada and Team USA have been eliminated from the IIHF World Championship. [NHL]
  • As for Ryan Miller, neither the Ducks nor the Sharks appear to be in his immediate future. [ProHockeyTalk]
  • The LAKings have fired the opening salvo in a new Twitter pizza war between the Kings and Blackhawks. [SBNation]
