    Other than NHL hockey (Canucks fan): other sports I enjoy watching are NFL football (Steelers fan) and PGA Golf.

    Big fan of heavy metal music (Iron Maiden, Amon Amarth, Sabaton, Lamb of God, Arch Enemy, Cavalera Conspiracy, Dark Tranquility, Insomnium).

    Enjoy travel, been all over North America, but I've also been to Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Mexico and the Caribbean, Singapore).

    I really enjoy running, and since 1990 I've finished 30 half marathons and 24 full marathons.

  1. Happy Birthday, Thomas Vanek!

    Happy Birthday Vanny! I wonder if they'll get Boeser to jump out of a cake lol I agree that Boeser and Vanek have really good chemistry, but Boeser seems to build chemistry with whomever he plays with. Keep them together for the rest of the year and hope Vanek continues to rack up the points. Then trade him for a late1st/high 2nd, or a good D prospect.
  2. #MeToo going to far?

    I wonder if we'll ever see a day when a woman is outed for sexual harassment. What concerns me is this is turning into a "Men are Pigs and they will Pay" movement, rather than a straight forward harassment movement. Harassment is in the eye of the receiver. I also wonder if this is an opportunity for forgotten celebrities to make themselves relevant again.
  3. What is your team and your role?

    Future Hall of Famer for the Wild. Hmm, I don't think I exist lol
  4. #MeToo going to far?

    From my experience - romance and respect. Unless you look like Chris Hemsworth, then there are no issues.
  5. #MeToo going to far?

    Gone too far? It's going to go farther yet. My take is pretty simple, some men think women want the same things as them. Most men don't have a clue what women really want.
  6. [Discussion] Lateral prospect trades

    Who's saying Goldobin, Lockwood and/or Palmu are "lesser"? There might be teams who have a decent D prospect they can afford to trade for a good prospect winger or two, they might need.
  7. [Discussion] Lateral prospect trades

    EDM has been dealing with this issue the last couple of years. Trading off their 1st overall forwards for average D. Canucks are in a better position though, as at least we have Juolevi and Chatfield in the mix. I wouldn't be opposed to trading Goldobin, Lockwood or Palmu etc. in a package deal.
  8. Home blue OR half season blue, half white?

    I wish they'd go back to the home whites, always enjoyed seeing the colourful visitor's jerseys which changed every game (eg. Philly's in town, so we'll see those orange and black jerseys, then STL is in town and we'll see the blue, yellow and black, etc). Today, every game has the visitors wearing white, which is kind of boring IMO.
  9. Where does Toronto go from here?

    Everyone in the organization wants to win. That's the nature of sports. There is a big difference between a primadonna Russian and an American superstar. Matthews will get term and salary.
  10. Where does Toronto go from here?

    Benning: We need to cut Boeser's ice time. He's too good and the more he scores, the more money and term he'll want later. Green: Do your own job, I'm trying to win games here Linden: Jim, you're fired.
  11. Where does Toronto go from here?

    As much as I dislike the Leafs, they'll be fine. Lamoriello as a GM and Babcock as a coach. Young players to build around: Matthews, Marner, Nylander, Brown, Gardiner, Rielly, Liljegren etc. The GM doesn't decide on who gets what ice time. Why would the Leafs want Matthews to stop scoring? Geez.
  12. I always thought Dorion looked a little like Squiggy from Laverne and Shirley lol
  13. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    EDM is in a win now place, they have McGretzky and Drysaddle, and will most likely try to trade for a top pairing D for a playoff run. I can't see them being patient and developing a D properly. As for the Canucks, nothing would surprise me on Draft Day, especially after JB passed on the BPA (apparently) and drafted Pettersson at #5. What a great pick though. I agree they really need D, but if Dahlin is gone, I can see them drafting Boqvist. Pettersson - Horvat - Boeser Juolevi - Boqvist
  14. I think BUF is going to get real greedy with their ask, and end up losing Kane for nothing in the off season. Is Kane a great playoff performer? Who knows, he's never been there in his 9 NHL seasons.
