On Wednesday, the Canucks announced they were extending general manager Jim Benning's contract for an unknown quantity of years. I talked to Patrick Johnston from The Province about the decision and delved into a topic he is passionate about: development. As a former teacher, Johnston cares deeply about development and how it applies in sports. We discuss the Canucks prospect system and this management groups successes and failures when it comes to development. Before all that, we talk about another one of Johnston's passions: rugby. It's a growing sport in Canada with a passionate fanbase.
