  1. [Report] Alexandre Burrows announces retirement

    A Canucks legend who I am psyched to someday see enter the ring of honour.
  2. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    I don't really hate the signings Benning made, its the term length that is the issue and even then, its more so Roussel than Beagle.
  3. Benning is doing a great job! (Discussion)

    Totally. They're getting there but its going to take a miracle to even think of the playoffs.
  4. Benning is doing a great job! (Discussion)

    If Roussel and Beagle are going to be the biggest names the Canucks sign, then this coming season is going to be painful. Seems a Petterson-Horvat-Boeser first line is a given.
  5. We're at least a season or two away from being in the middle of the pack and I'm fine with that being the point at which we begin fine tuning the build. The team is on the right path at the right time and unless it's truly worth it and makes sense with the current lineup, the Canucks should keep on with what they've been doing.

    I thought I was banned for a second. I then realized quickly I had done nothing to get banned. Glad to see the forum is back up since its one of the few around that still is active.
  7. A look back at the Cory Schneider trade 5 years later

    I was not really surprised by the trade at the time because with Lou's contract and the fact one of them would have to be traded (IIRC we were just around the hitting the cap at the time), my buddy and I were discussing the night before that there was no way it would be Bobby Lou that would end up being traded, it had to be Cory. I didn't think it was going to happen the next day. I would never take back that trade. It was a pure hockey trade that ended up working out in the Canucks favor. Can't say that for most big Canuck trades.
  8. 94 & 2011 SCF Run

    I am a Canucks fan BECAUSE of that 94 run. Wouldn't change it for anything.
  9. A war the country had fight to exist, a war over territory, a war necessitated by the growth of the country (and human dignity), another territorial war and another war that America was eventually forced into, strongly against public opinion.
  10. Neither WWI or WWII were wars that the American public or government really wanted to be a part of, ESPECIALLY WWI. There was a good reason that one of the most populist countries in the world had the 11th biggest military before WWII. People in America made it very clear before WWI and WWII that they did not wish to be involved in what was considered 'European Wars'. Hell, Canada didn't want to be part of either war and actually pushed with much of the commonwealth after WWI to be able to legally decide when or what wars they would fight in.
  11. Before December 7th, 1941 so was America.
  12. March 8, 1979

    The better scenario to watch would be to see that MTL team play ANY modern NHL team. The game has evolved so much since then that most modern NHL teams would be a challenge for that team, as good as they were. The game has been so hybridized that the Habs would have a hard time keeping up with modern players.
  13. I would love to have a goalie of Rinne's calibur playing for the Canucks but I have a hard time seeing him leave Nashville.
  14. It would be absolutely mental for the league to expand and have a lockout in the first season for an expansion team.
  15. A Perfect Circle Returns with the First Ever Hologram Album

    With the amount of time we have to wait between Tool albums, I hope its not the same case.
