  1. Haha, I don’t know what it looks like. Just riffing on an idea that has worked elsewhere when home prices inflate beyond what the consumer market can afford. They were separate apartment suites, the place is 3 levels high all with the family members each living in their own suite. I didn’t see it as that bad of an idea.
  2. The interest would be horrible, I agree. Just not sure what to do at this point. I don’t have much experience with these generational mortgages but they do exist and for good reason I imagine. I live in Victoria and thankfully bought before the prices spiked. But I wonder what the landscape looks like when no one can buy a house any more? Would home prices tank because no one can buy? That would hurt us home owners. Double edge sword, and messy any way you slice it. Rome isn’t cheap either, thought it was a close enough market comparison. But I see your point, Vancouver is on another level.
  3. The only way I see affordable housing in Vancouver is if they start handing out generational mortgages. Then a family could afford to purchase at those prices. Vancouver is an international city, and i’ve seen this done elsewhere. In Rome it is impossible to buy land or buy a house if you’re not stinking rich...the solution, generational mortgages. You are able to get a 100 year mortgage, and it is able to be passed on to your family or they sign on with you. The guy I know in Rome has a 3 level house, and has 2 generations of family living under him. They couldn’t afford to buy land for their children, so they decided to build up the house instead. He was always concerned about his family losing the property when he passes. Now with a generational mortgage in place the family can now afford to take over the home. Anyways, I have no idea exactly how a generational mortgage works, but spread 1 million over 100 years and I’m thinking it would be affordable lol. I know Rome has done this and have heard of other places doing it. Not sure why Vancouver doesn’t?

  5. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    If he can stay healthy, I think he honestly will. He’s always been a garbage goal guy, he was pretty much tops in the league at it till he came here. He needs to be surrounded by guys that can make plays and create rebounds, he’s money cleaning up in front and at the sides of the net. If he can like you said get back to that then we will all be happy. He is great defensively however and I still see great value in him on that side of things. If he starts scoring again, he will be worth the money.

    You can’t garnish everything about a player by measuring and calculating his counting stats and watching video, then come up with bold predictions with out ever watching the player in real time, live at the rink. How does the player do while the camera isn’t following him?? Is he floating? Is he sitting on the bench sulking? We don’t know. You have to be there in person to see the full spectrum of the athelete you are assessing. Scouting has really turned towards the selection of “high IQ” athletes that can process the game at higher levels, the rest of the kinks they can train out. But IQ is so important nowadays. And the best place to find your answers is at the rink. Not at home in front of your tv/computer. They do entertain me from time to time, but find them too biased in one approach to take them 100 % seriously. At least like you said they warn you at the beginning that they “haven’t seen this player in person but...” lol
  7. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    And those posters probably complained about them and their lack of production last year as well too This team will score goals, they are ready for the next step. The Sedins even believe it. Not sure what the panic is
  8. Sam Gagner, why the hate?

    I agree, he does play with a bit of vinegar out there. I’m hoping he has a good bounce back season. Like many have posted on here. He is a decent stop gap safety measure for light sheltered 2C duties at the beginning of the year as we ease our young guys into their roles. It’s gonna take time to see where they all shake out on the roster. Will be a very interesting year!

    Ya I loved growing up out there as a kid. Lots to do. Ya they are freaky birds haha, but I appreciate how tough they are, so makes me respect em! That’s a wicked experience too. I’ve never seen an elephant. It’s on the bucket list for sure! Cheers blunt

    I was a kid and was too curious for my own good. They had their talons shaved down at least. And I always stuck close to the fence so I could jump it quickly lol. He was trying to breed them but gave up after 10 years. They even hate each other and are difficult to breed haha. The eggs were huge tho, looked like dinosaur eggs.

    My uncles neighbor used to run an ostrich farm. They are mean buggers. And big friggin birds. And they like pretty much nobody. If there was an animal a**hole of the year trophy it would probably win it hands down...but maybe that’s just my opinion, and it may be flawed...since I was chased several times by them as a
  14. This is what i've never got about the complaints on Sutters production and peoples willingness to ignore the facts... Since he's got here he's been injured and/or matched up against the top lines in the league. We have never had a Centerman like Beagle who can take some of that load off of him. And like you said he's still producting 35-40 pts a year (if averaged out) in a heavily slanted defensive role. I think it would be fair to assume if given more offensive talent and more offensive zone time he could be looking at 40-50 points this year. It was the same for him in Caroline and Pittsburgh, he was playing a shutdown 3C role. 2C is not a reach for him.
  15. I wonder if most people who have never ranched before knows what that But I agree, Canucksarmy you do have to take with a block not grain of salt haha. I like Cory Hergott there, he shows great passion for writing about our prospects in Utica. I do read and visit the site, but I also realize they are way to heavy on the analytics side of things for me to completely agree with them 100%.
