      Good for you.

      Always good to invest in real estate,start small, work up slowly and carefully and retire without a mortgage and you are in gravy.

      Wise decisions are sometimes scary and the cash flow will be tight for the near future but it is the end game that will look rosy.

      You will then have the leverage to see how the banks can crunch the numbers in your favour and invest in things you enjoy like helping your family or travel or more property.That perfect sized dream house or whatever.

      too bad I couldn't get there in time for a Horvat jersey, the site kept crashing. luckily I managed to grab two canucks hats, one canucks hoodie, two team Canada hats, and one team Canada jacket. great deals!

  6. As of today, the Canucks have better odds of winning the Cup than the Lightning, Oilers, and Leafs do as per moneypuck

      The real news here is that they're giving the Canucks a 72% chance of making the playoffs as well. That's the highest I've seen so far.

      So it is written so it shall be done,

      Myself and all the Canuck fans around the globe would enjoy that immensely.

      I saw that! But I'm not in Vancouver and I'm looking to get away from sports writing, so I'm not sure if it's the best move for me to apply.

  9. Still not big on the Myers signing, but this might have been GMJB's best offseason otherwise

      Agree with Alflives here.   If Myers is solid for us, it takes the load off Edler and Tanev and shifts everyone below them down a spot to where they are better suited.   Cautiously optimistic!

      Canucks offseasons have been getting better and better lately.

    4. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      Even if he doesn't blow people away having him as depth is great, he takes some of the weight off of Edler and Tanev's veteran shoulders. Benn does too. 

       

      What's really made me happy about Benning's work this summer is he's been able to nail the dollar amount without giving away term to compensate for it. 

  10. If Myers gets signed to 7x8... yikes.

      @canuktravella that's sacrificing long-term gain for short-term gain. If the goal is to make the playoffs, sure. Thinking like that will never get you the Stanley Cup.

      Actually, if you read the 5th word in everyone of my posts going back to 2017, I’ve been writing an absolutely filthy Horvat/Boeser fanfic.

      Fanfic = fan fiction, it's a story about two people/characters and many are erotic

      Well refer to the Carly drawing of me and the Sedin guy in the dungeon.  We've got this covered.

  14. Apparently the Canucks want to leapfrog the Oilers to select Broberg... ugh. Just take him at 10

      They also have the Canucks selecting Caufield

      I don't think anyone would, but 7th rounders are crapshoots anyhow. I don't think it would hurt at all. As Baer said, she's 120 lbs, and she's not even "tall" like Hilary Knight is. She'd get destroyed.

    3. Baer.

      Baer.

      The Islanders used a pick on Andong Song which I'm pretty sure was just a publicity stunt to draft the first Asian player. So anything can happen.

    I 'member.

      I'm iffy on the colour scheme of the third jerseys, but love everything else.

      I really like like the main jerseys, and it's awesome to see the skate back too. 

       

      Those third jerseys tho :lol:

  18. I feel like Benning's top targets are Caufield, Boldy, Podkolzin, Cozens, Harley, and Newhook... anywhere from 5-20 is going to be extremely tough to predict, though.

    1. Ossi Vaananen

      Ossi Vaananen

      It's been leaked that our extended interviews and invites to Vancouver prior to the draft are Zegras, Newhook, Caulfied and Broberg. I'm fine with any!

  19. If you're Edmonton, do you do Puljujarvi for Callahan? Do you do it if you're Tampa?

      Why would Callahan agree to waive his NMC to go to an AHL team?

    3. canucklehead44

      canucklehead44

      Why on earth would Edmonton do this. Puljujarvi is a 6'4, 225 lb recent 4th overall pick. He is 21 not 25. 

      Two seasons ago Virtanen scored 19 points in 65 AHL games. Would you have wanted to drop him back then for  Callahan?

    4. thejazz97

      thejazz97

      You know what, I forgot about the NMC

       

      As for Virtanen for Callahan, no - we're taking the long road to rebuild. And, we don't need a competent winger like the Oilers do. Now I get that Callahan might be setting the bar a little too low, but he's still a (albeit past his prime) skilled forward with captaincy and playoff experience.

      Never read the books or seen the movies.  I do know that Alan Rickman played one of the characters though.  In the movies, whichever character Rickman played is likely the best.
