  3. Donald J. Trump, 45th US President of the United States

    ^ Media-consuming product of Social Engineering. You want me to read something written about the Trump admin and those supporters with a source from MSN? Eat your pablum... Evidently, gone are the days of thinking for one’s self. “Trump is racist.” ”Trump is sexist.” I could fill the page with these fallacies and the 9:1 crowd would still claim whatever they were told to, in response. Puppets.

    Yes, agreed. That’s a fair summary of the obvious and you’ve switched to future tense while quoting my views on the past. For reasons of your own, you neatly skirt is the past, which was my point, and the IR’d D, “accidental/stealth tank contribution. I know that the kids might make the Club... one day. That’s not at all my point.

    I get why they picked up these guys and paid them and with term. Fine. What I don’t get is why the D remains as it is, again. So, I agree with your quip, but doubt many others will share that sentiment.

    It’s that historic, predictable pattern of D injuries, the resultant GAA and the utter lack of making any proactive change to that weak-link that makes me wonder if we are witnessing managerial suckcess and ineptitude, or was the plan all along to let that predictable result play out, which is as tankity as makes no difference. All that has been missing from calling these past seasons Tank Jobs has been the TO or NYR signal; the fire sale. People can belive what what they want to about the recent past concerning this team’s management. I see patterns and trends that are manageable. Didn’t Linden? I’d like to think so. In that case, these have been, indeed, Stealth Tanks. that, or something less palatable, like poor management.

    Accidental or Stealth? I cant decide on what this management is up to. Have they really just forgot that this is an IR filled D with questionable goaltending? Are they at all surprised that they get scored on by managing the roster the way they have? No matter how many goals the exciting kids score, this is still an Edmonton, or dare I say, Toronto, roster; no D. Though Edmonton has at least tried to get some D into the mix via trade. I’ve not been surprised how the seasons have gone with a Dcore like that. It’s predictable. So, is it that the management didn’t see that coming, or did, and quietly acted surprised. Were these accidental or on purpose mistakes, which led to Tank-like finishes, season after season after predictable, injury-riddled season?
  8. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    Put this kid on the Sedin diet. Give him all the gravey and none of the heavy lifting; give him every opportunity to pad his stats. Then trade him. IMO, he is not a playoff-warrior type.

    They were, but were also gifted PP gravy early on, with little serious PK time. I actually recall them jumping out of the lane from slappers back then. They’d get the PK shift that was the last 20 seconds of the kill. Stuff like that. Nobody was ever as sheltered on this team. They were behind some quality two-way vets and the WCE. 3rd line minutes, yes, but not in a checking capacity, which hurt the team in the coming playoff nightmares. Well, them and &^@#ing Cloutier. Offensive-minded, hard working kids shouldn’t be forced to be a square peg out there. Look at Bure, Selanne, Etc. The Canucks have had this “earn it” thing go so horribly wrong for far too long, especially while simultaneously providing the twins for every gravey opportunity imaginable. Leaders, alright.
