  1. In general idealistic terms 1. Someone to love and be loved in return by 2. A purpose that is fulfilling to the person in question. This could be a job, creating art, giving back, whatever makes you feel fulfilled. In simple terms I think that's all you need to be happy BUT the world isn't a utopia and most everyone has to deal with the stresses of meeting needs, paying bills etc. To meet these needs we often have to forgo number 2 because what fulfills us usually doesn't make any money. Thus we end up taking jobs that take up large portions of our time in order to get a paycheque. Yes, in rare cases people can love their job and make enough to meet all needs but for the vast majority of us, we are doing things that we make the best of but is far from our dreams. As for number 1. Finding someone like that remains a bit of a crapshoot. So many other factors go into now, its not like it was 2 generations ago where most people married and found love with the person down the street. Now there are so many options and dynamics in play (do I text back now or wait, can I do better than who I have now? etc etc.) that "the one" as the movies put it is seemingly more and more illusive. That being said I apologize for the long post and I don't mean to be a downer. My advice, just keep searching for the above two things and if one is lucky, they will be able to find it
  2. Just got in....Jensen on the 4th line eh? How's he looking?
  3. 1) Canucks start slow. Finish strong thanks in large part due to emergence of youth movement (JV heats up post trade deadline a la Bo last year) barely making the 8th seed 2) Vey disappoints and Gaunce ends up taking his spot (I know they transitioned him to wing last year in Utica but I think he takes the 4C by seasons end) 3) Slow start leads to fire sale leading up to deadline. One of Higgins/ Hansen gone early in the year (for picks or another quick development guy like Vey/ Clendening) to make room for Kenins who impresses in training camp 4) Both Hamhuis and Vrbata get moved at the deadline. Hamhuis wins the cup on his new team. The return on one of these trades will net a late first and the other trade will be a marginal pick package 5) Markstrom challenges Miller mid season for starting role after a few good games (because its not Vancouver without a goalie controversy) 6) Sutter becomes a fan favorite (I know the Penguin fans hated him last year) 7) Final Lineup by the end of the season Sedin-Sedin-Burrows Sven-Sutter-JV Kenins-Horvat-Higgins/Hansen (whoever remains) Prust-Gaunce-Dorsett Edler-Tanev Corrado- Sbisa Weber-Barkowski Random not season specific predictions 8) Benning uses cap space to chase best available D-Man in FA 9) Canucks lose round 1 in 7. Team plays hard and shows signs of promise 10) Canucks lose the game they wear the 94 retro jerseys because we never seem to win when we go retro
  4. Happy that the pick is 2015 instead of 2017. I know others have stated its a deep draft but I like that we know the pick will be in the late 40s (perhaps even later ) whereas in 2017 we have no idea how good/bad this team will be. Either way don't know much about the kid but I trust GMJB, hopefully he's a big part of the future
  5. Why is everyone so keen on moving up to 1st? From what I've read and seen in mock drafts there doesn't seem to be a consensus number one guy (Reinhart,Ekblad and Bennett have all been up there in the rankings/mocks) and the gap between those three and the other 3/4 guys slated to go after doesn't seem that large (again just purely based on what I've read not professing to be some expert on jr hockey) So I don't see why there is such a big push to trade assets and/or the number 6 to move up to 1...Maybe someone more knowledgable can shed some light?
  6. As long as we don't give up picks for any rental I'm fine with so given our injuries I'm happy with this trade. Our bottom 6 as people have pointed out is loaded with similar talent so losing Weise isn't a major hit. I doubt an Edler trade is coming until after the break and we see the timetable on return of our other D men
  8. My thoughts go out to those affected by the earthquakes today hope everyone is okay
