  1. Seeing Daniel skate onto the ice got me feeling some sort of way.
  2. I'll do that whenever I get a minute. I'm not a huge fan of the party leaders in general. It's unfortunate that my favourite out of the bunch doesn't have a platform that really matches well with my values.
  3. This is a really tough election. I thought I knew who I was going to vote for but as time goes on I find myself more and more unsure. I'm just hoping for a minority government for whoever wins.
  4. I hate election season

      Politics in general is toxic af. 

       

      Never understood how people put so much time and energy into it.

      I'm just tired of going on my social media(s) and every other post is something like "If you vote _______ you're an idiot!".  I wouldn't mind it if people actually challenged others opinions with facts.  Unfortunately it's just a yelling match.

      also I don't need to see the same party flags 10feet apart. What a waste of tax dollars. Who even votes based on a sign off the side of the road?????

  5. I wouldn't mind seeing him in a package to acquire a prospect like K'andre Miller.
  6. NHL partnering with Green Day... Man the league is out of tough with the youth.

      Can you give an example? Because this era of teenagers is into music that isn't the most friendly from a marketing perspective.

      Post Malone, Travis Scott, Swae Lee, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye, Diplo, Ed Sheeran, Lil Nas X, Billie Eilish.

      This guy actually put Swae Lee :lol:

       

      Here are 2 issues.

      1. The artists need to want to do it and it needs to be worthwhile for them.

      2. Most of the artists that you mentioned consistently use inappropriate words making it nearly impossible. Radio edits and rap is stupid.

       

      Additionally, Billie Eilish/Travis Scott are Garbage humans

       

       

  7. Eriksson for McDavid.  Who says no?

      Salary cap says no. 

      Unless Sutter and Tanev are throw in's?

      Buut buuuuttt buuuuttt... at this rate how will Petey EVER develop into the savior this team's been looking for with Connor taking up his play time and cap space?  Also, has Benning SEEN pre-season Loui?  Guy is on fireee  :frantic:

      Why would McDavid come to Vancouver to play 3rd line centre?  ^_^

  8. This is a more realistic trade. I can see the Jets buying into this trade, a Hail Mary move for the executives. I'm assuming that a lot of people in Winnipeg are scrambling and could be out of a job soon.
  9. I would have to go with Boston. I love the New England area, and from my understanding Boston is a beautiful city. The fan support is good in Boston as well. You would get to participate in many outdoor games. A Boston sports team always seems to be contending for a title, which creates excitement around the city. The Garden is a staple around the league. Short commute to many cities. By playing in Boston you also get to be apart of some of the NHLs oldest and most exciting rivalries. Overall, Boston would be the ideal city for me. With all that being said, I absolutely hate the Bruins.
  10. Wouldn't get pestered by fans when running errands around town too.
  11. I feel like you're over valuing our assets.
  12. If DB does end up retiring the Jets will be scrambling for some defence. I don't know if someone like OJ would be an attractive asset for the Jets. I was thinking that the Canucks could package some young assets for a player like Ehlers or Connor. I'm thinking a potential trade could end up looking like this. Van OJ - $863 000 Tanev - $4 450 000 Gaudette - $916 000 WPG Ehlers/Connor - $6 000 000 We would still be over the cap, so JB is going to have to get creative and find a taker for our 6 million dollar man or Sutter. Honestly I don't think it's out of the picture for a trade like this to happen. The Jets will need D to contend and we can give them our not so amazing D and some young assets for a solid winger. Obviously this won't happen but it's fun to play pretend every once in a while. What are your thoughts on a trade scenario like this?
  13. I feel like a lot of kids started thinking that it was safe. I know people that started to vape because they enjoyed playing with the smoke. Not to mention peer pressure, kids want to fit in. Also, kids like all the different flavours you can get. Before they started to vape I feel like they have the mentality that they won't let themselves get addicted either. I feel like at least 60% of kids my age have tried vaping at least once (probably even higher tbh).
  14. I'm a college kid and can confidently say that vaping is an epidemic. Many of my friends and colleagues are addicted to vaping. One of friends has to vape the second he wakes up. When I walk around campus you'll always see multiple people vaping (even in lectures and the library), it's a lot more popular than smoking. You go to a party/bar and everyone is vaping, it's everywhere. Kids are starting young too, I think my little cousin vaped in middle school. I know at my old high school they had to put no vaping signs all over the school it became such a problem. Kids would go to the bathroom just to vape. I think that people are starting to wake up though. Every week you see a new horror story about vaping on twitter or Instagram. Some of friends are starting trying to quit (lowering the nicotine levels in the juice). I hope more kids are trying to quit too.
  15. Do you think that the NHL would benefit from putting a cap on the length of contracts?

      The 3 year entry level contract thing is what's wrong, some guys deserve over a $1M and some don't, but because they're all forced to be under 1M for the first 3 years, come time for their 2nd contract they're going to go big because they feel they were shafted in the previous couple years being forced to be under 1M. It's crazy to think someone like McDavid in his 2nd year leads the league in scoring but is only making 925K, now if he was able to make say $2M in his 2nd and 3rd year instead maybe him and his agent don't push as hard to get to 12.5, maybe they say 11 is fine. And I also feel after their entry level contract, they should be allowed another 3 year max contract at a max value $10M most, so after 6 years a player who's 18 or 19, so when he reaches the age of 25ish then he can go big and long term if they want with no restrictions.

      NTC should be determined by X amount of professional games played ( 4 - 6 seasons or a third NHL contract something like that ) to qualify.

      I didn't know that the max was 8 years! I definitely think that the NHL should lower it to 5 years though, and rethink the whole entry level contract (after the new TV deal).

  16. Should the Canucks trade Eriksson to the Raiders for Brown?  Browns history of getting frostbite on his feet is a little concerning.  I think JB should pull the trigger.

      Antonio's a locker room cancer, the Pats should get rid of him.  If they want to make this swap it's totally reasonable for them to include Belichick, small ask :ph34r:

  17. Not big on the Leafs, but damn I love their goal song.  It's infectious!

      @NewbieCanuckFan Want the leafs to lose tonight just so the media can shut up about the leafs.  Feels wrong cheering for Boston.

      Was classic when Sens trolled Laffnation, playing that song as the Leafs were beaten(heading off to PO's in slump)!

  19. I can see Benning trying to jump up to the 4th spot.  Don't know who to package with the 10th pick though.

      If Jim could convince Edmonton to give us the 8th for Tanev I'd be a happy guy. Picking 8th and 10th this year would be phenomenal.

      I dont think Byram makes it past the Hawks.

       

      They need young defensemen probably most of all.

      Thank goodness we had an Alien to help with the flight.

      E.P. certainly made it fun.

  22. Bought my first car last year. 2005 Volvo S60. Had it for the end of senior year of High School, hoping it's going to last for all of uni. It's a pretty alright ride. Had to replace the fuel pump, and the tank is leaking a lil gas. The car reeks of gas whenever I fill her up, hoping it doesn't cost too much to fix. Overall, happy with it.
