  1. Benning on Vancouver 1040

    What I'd really like to see (and Canuck Surfer is pretty much spot on for this one) is for us to acquire through trade a stay-at-home D-man who is mobile with the puck and has a great first-pass-out-the-zone, but will also tell crease-crashers that he'll cross-check their lungs out if they dare hang out in front of the crease - and then do it.   Bartkowski looks to be slowly easing into that role, but he needs to assert his authority a bit more around the crease.  
  2. [Waivers] Ferraro(det) Granberg(tor)

    Defensive D with a strong first-pass out of the zone?  If I were the Canucks, I'd be demanding, "WHERE DO I SIGN!?"
  3. Edler back pass

    Was I seeing things, or did Chris Higgins enter the offensive zone SDRAWKCAB at least twice in the Bell Centre tonight?  I could've sworn he was going to put himself offside at some point.  
  4. JB sends out scouts to watch Swedish Leagues leading scorer - Anton Rodin

    To build on your point, the scouting part of his job requires him to understand the assets on the team as well as the assets for which the Canucks still holds rights to.  If he can find a good fit within the team for the kid, I'm sure Jim Benning wouldn't hesitate to sign him to a deal on the expectation that he makes it onto the big club; however, even if there's no fit for the kid on the Canucks, he still needs to know what Rodin's worth is in order to get at least fair value when trading away his rights.   Of course, it's a bit of a moot point if the kid's out with a broken collarbone.   (How long does it take for one of those to heal?  Don't forget to factor in a couple of weeks of ramp-up time after he's cleared to play.)
  5. Vrbata looks spooked out there.  It almost seems that if you stare at him too long, he'll curl into the fetal position.
  6. Should we abolish Daylight Savings Time?

    Guiz... Guise!  I's gots an idea!  Hows abouts we advance the clocks an hour each and every year, and not bothers to "fall back"?  Den we'd be savin' soooooo much daylights!!                
  7. Canucks Snubbed in HF Prospect Rankings

    Hockey's who?  Never heard of them, and probably as relevant as Eklund is reliable (ie. not relevant at all).
  8. [Waivers] Corrado claimed by Toronto Maple Leafs

    Does it really matter whether or not what the Laffs are doing is against the spirit or intent of the league's rules?  They've got Shanahan.  That's as good as getting a "Get out of jail free" card in the NHL.

  10. A quick glance at the title made me think that BC was about to be penetrated by a big turkey...
  11. Compass Cards Available to Order Online Now

    I love how they've spent years trying to re-invent the wheel, and they still can't have a proper release for it. Seriously, couldn't they have just used one of the existing systems from somewhere else in the world? Would've saved a helluvalot of time than trying this farcical p.o.s.

    As in "pin the tail on the donkey-face"? I'd be all for that!
  13. [Public Service Announcement] How 4 Way Stops Work

    The one that gets my goat the most are those who feel the stop line is just a suggestion, and that the real stop line is somewhere 3" before to 1' after the curb. That often means possibly one to one and a half car lengths past the real stop line. And I'm not even talking about 4-way stops; the worst offenders are those with cross-traffic that have right-of-way by virtue of either no intersection lights, or a flashing green light.
  14. Being a Canuck in Toronto.

    In case y'all didn't know of this particular Facebook group's existence... https://www.facebook.com/groups/19095292008/ There's a good lot over in Hong Kong cheering on the Canucks. They even tried to maintain a "playoff gathering schedule" during this past season's short run. And good for them, I says.
