  1. 子曰: 「己所不欲 勿施于人」 My favourite all-time Confucius quote.
  2. Not sure where the concept of "2-way contract" = "not needing waivers" came from. 2-way contracts only dictate how much a player makes in the minors vs. the NHL, and has absolutely no bearing on a player's waiver status. Games played is the more direct condition to determine waiver status. That said, if Stevie Y was truly pissed off at Jim Benning for "tampering", there's a good chance that they won't be discussing trade options any time soon.
  3. I remember when one of the theatres (can't remember if it was the old Odeon in Station Square, or if it was one of the SilverCity theatres) made the theatre rooms a dead-zone for cellphones. I think it was Station Square. Best thing ever for people who go to the theatres to watch movies on the big screen.
  4. Willie goes all Reggie Dunlop while Emerson Etem becomes "The Killer" and the Sedins turn into Ned Braden. Count Bettman hands the Cup over to the Canucks after he's sucker-punched by Shawn Thornton. The end.
  5. This would give us 2 Viking lines... ...hey, maybe that's what we're missing - we should have the team renamed the "Vancouver Vikings"! Skål!
  6. We'll probably be carrying 2 extra D and 2 extra F - because Pedan plays both ways.
  7. While scoring is a key aspect in the game, I would say the one thing the team could spend a bit more time pursuing at this stage is face-off wins. Either sign a face-off specialist (a la Malhotra) or train our bottom-6 centremen to earn better than 50% face-off wins.
  8. Where's my damned Hip tickets!? &^@#ing Canada Post!
  9. Now, if they'd only start the Canucks broadcast as the late game in a double-header ON TIME regardless of the early game's completion status, that'd be fan-friggin'-tastic.
  10. I read the CBC's article on this, and have to say that the issue of low viewership isn't as simple as who's "hosting" the show. The issue is more ingrained, and is a direct result of the actions of midgetman and the half-dozen or so owners that are pulling his strings. Until there's a change in the philosophy in the way the league handles its own affairs, I'm pretty sure the downward trend in Canadian viewership will continue.
  11. Coyotes, where cap hits go to rest.
  12. What cap recapture hit? He signed as an F/A with the Flyers after he got bought out by the Lightning.
  13. I can't imagine Jim Benning would explicitly name certain players that he'd be going after in free agency - isn't that considered tampering?
  14. The French Canadians are going to have a field day with this, if Gretzky's hope comes to fruition.
  15. And it's that kind of complacency that will be the death of mankind. Everybody matters to some extent to someone. It's just a matter of connecting the right person to the right situation. You might laugh off the apparent absurdity of what seems to be meaningless information being used for criminal activity, but everything has value, and everything can be weaponized to some extent when placed in the wrong hands.
