  1. Alex Biega - Do We Really Need Him?

    Obviously Biega is not part of the Canucks future, but I think he's been a valuable part of the present, performing well when called upon. I think he'll be missed in the short term.

    That's more like it! Use the force Brock!
  3. When I hear of this kind of thing happening, it really makes me wonder if we're slowly but inexorably heading for a complete breakdown of society. There are no words, it's just unthinkable.
  4. A Tribute to the Sedin Twins

    Nice piece of work, well done!
  5. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Dallas Stars

    The whole game was (at least the bit that I saw after the D game). Can't help thinking though, with that kind of physicality, the Canucks are going to have to come up with something to answer it. Even if all the prospects in the pipeline come up to their expectations (hopes?). I don't see a lot of size coming through—good God, Winnipeg look like a team full of WWF contenders!

    His work ethic, speed and sheer enthusiasm should have him playing regular 5-6 D shifts. There has barely been a game this season where he wouldn't have been a better replacement for one of those on the ice, often more than one of them. Glad to see they signed him up again.

    No question about that, I just don't know what they're seeing with Pouliot.
  8. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Florida Panthers

    Can't believe the negativity towards the Sedins here, they are 12 and 14 points behind the leading scorer. If they were young guys coming up everybody would be singing their praises. We know they're in the twilight of their careers but they are not the major problem right now. The problem is that JB has inherited a team that needs rebuilding virtually from scratch and that this will take time. If you haven't got the patience to watch and wait maybe you should just stop watching.
  9. Thought he did some good stuff, ICBC for one—where it is now has nothing to do with him or his vision for it—but he always came across as a bit of a whiner, which didn't instill much confidence. Then, of course, the marriage with the unions came to a dramatic end when he ordered the ferry workers back to work—reality had kicked in, what else could he do? All in all though he served the people of the province well, and should be remembered as such.
  10. Aquilini’s intentions with JB

    What you're saying may be true, who knows, the draft is a bit of a crapshoot. The Ericsson deal, however, cost big money, and that is very important to Mr. A.
  11. Aquilini’s intentions with JB

    If they do let Jim go, I think it will primarily be because of the Loui signing. Of all the stuff he's done since coming here, that was the standout screwup. Other than that any mistakes have been rookie goofs and minor oopsies that really don't amount to too much at all. A couple more years should show how his long-term plans shape up. Ownership has gone through a long and profitable time in recent years, now we're looking at what will hopefully be short-term pain for long-term gain.
  12. [Report] Brad Marchand suspended 5 games

    Damn! I've got the little pr#k in my hockey pool.
  13. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

    I agree, I keep waiting for the reason LA got rid of him to show up, but so far I don't see it—maybe they fell in love with the idea of having a Subban on the blueline. If he can consistently show up like he did in this game he's definitely an asset on the 4th line. I guess we'll have a better picture by the end of the season, but so far, so good.
  14. I don't care if he doesn't fight, what makes me wonder is why he doesn't play a more physical game. Once he became a regular team member I expected him to become that player that had defencemen looking over their shoulders whenever he was around. That isn't happening.
