  1. The start of a HOF career

    I think everyone knows it was only 1 game man. People are essentially admitting that they're being ridiculous and don't care because they're excited. Don't let it bug you. Not only does this happen around the league but also in other sports. I follow MMA for example and I swear every 5 or 6 months is "the biggest fight in UFC history" lol
  2. Quinn Hughes | D

    For some reason the weird comparison that keeps popping in my mind is Patrick Kane if he played defense. The way they skate and move with the puck reminds me of each other but in different areas of the ice due to position.
  3. Quinn Hughes | D

    That's fair and I agree. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Hughes right now. Saying that everyone would take Dahlin over Hughes is not a critisism. Would you have taken Hughes 2nd at the time or just in hindsight? Now that his hunger to win games has surprised people? If so I would say that you are alone. The 2018 draft thread is there to flip through if you want to see where peoples heads were at. People here started pumping Hughes as a top 2 guy AFTER he was ours. I stand by my statement. It's a pretty clear example of homerism.
  4. Quinn Hughes | D

    Everyone would have taken Dahlin even the people trying to make the case for Hughes. People didn't start talking about Hughes being às good or better until AFTER we drafted him. One of the more obvious examples of homerism out there.
  5. Quinn Hughes Vs Rasmus Dahlin!

    Oh yeah just his size and shot. No big deal lol Dahlin has fairly significant advantages over Hughes in both of these areas. Dahlin is also about half a year younger than Hughes. I love Quinn Hughes! I'm very hyped on him. However I don't think he's quite as close to Dahlin as some of you apparently do.
  6. [Waivers] Alex Burrows

    I don't want him back at this stage (as a player) but one of those 1 day contract type of things so that he can retire as a Canuck would be cool.
  7. Olli Juolevi | D

    Interesting. There's a lot of nice looking possible future pairings now but I personally really like the idea of a Juolevi - Woo shut down pair. I think OJs simple calm style of play allows Woo to be more agressive and physical. They would also eat up a lot of d-zone face offs so that Hughes doesn't have to. That's my own personal vision of the future anyway.
  8. [Report] The Sabres Will Not Qualify Lehner

    He's a solid pick up for a team that needs goaltending help but I'm not surprised.
  9. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    That's too bad about Rogers Arena. That's what I would prefer. The latest World Cup game that day starts at 11am so I am hoping it's over before the draft. I can't find any broadcast info for the draft yet however so fingers crossed.
  10. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Hey did you ever find out the answer to this? Or does anyone else know? I too would like to watch it with people. Anyone in here manage a pub? I'll bring you some business haha
  11. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Haha are you sure? I was thinking that Eichel should probably come packaged with the first overall but I left that out so that I didn't seem greedy. Seriously though I was kidding. I know sarcasm doesn't translate well via text but I intentionally said something ridiculous lol I'm just taking the day off to enjoy the draft (missed out last year) and have a few beverages with some buddies. I am a Sabres fan as well as Canucks so this draft should be pretty enjoyable for me personally.
  12. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Well today I just officially put in a vacation day at work so that I can have draft day off. Don't let me down JB! I expect us to add 2 more first rounders (one of which will be 1st overall) or this draft (and my vacation day) is a bust!
  13. 94 & 2011 SCF Run

    1994 was my original heartbreak in sports. I was 5 and I was crushed. 2011 I was heartbroken but also very very angry. The 2011 finals rile me up to this day if I really get in to a discussion about it. But I would NEVER wish those memories away. The runs up to those game 7's were some of the best times of my life! They were reminders of why I love hockey. The draft and off-season isn't actually supposed to be the fun part. We have forgotten in Vancouver
  14. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    There was some noise on Pettersson near the end (closer to the draft) actually. I remember because I was mad about it at the time haha. I went and read as much about him as I could so that I would be a little more excited about him just in case (God forbid!) we actually draft the guy over someone like Glass! Funny thinking back on it now lol
