  1. Long time listener, first time caller here. All the things said here about Dan are true, the good and the bad. I started listening to sportstalk about 1990. Back then, there was no internet so for people living outside the lower mainland, Sportstalk really was our only link to Canucks Hockey. Of course, back then, Dan was incredibly antagonistic towards his callers and quite easily riled up when someone disagreed with him. Many times, a caller would simply be hung up on for disagreeing. (RIP PAUSER) It was tough to listen to, but it was all we had between 10 and midnight. And there was a lot of substance to his shows. I think Dan is right in saying those things about company schills and other stations being handcuffed by nux management. Canucks org definitely has a hand in filtering what gets presented to the public (Hello Tom Larscheid) and it is important that there is at least one voice out there who can provide a flipside to the stories of the day, biased or not. Dan might be a bitter, jaded old man but he always has been. The part about the fans deserving a devils advocate is bang on imo. Of course, with the internet, everyone can be devils advocate and that probably changed his show a bit. Anyhow, I think Dan Russel and his show were important and at least he can look in the mirror and know that he has integrity and did it his way without bowing to the pressures of the canucks org. I'll hang up and listen to your comments. Edit: I won't forgive Dan for his treatment of Pavel Bure, though. He was one of the worst offending media members when it came to Bure.

  4. Not saying he doesn't get scoops, just saying these days, a scoop ain't what it used to be.
  5. Moneyball does not apply to hockey, see: "intangibles" #baseballsux

  6. Bob Mckenzie doesn't know shat, just like everyone else. When he does get a scoop, it's a matter of seconds until the entire world knows about it anyway. How many times did this guy hane Lu going to Toronto/Philly/Florida onandonandon?
  7. Really? During second intermission, as the canucks were losing to St Louis 4-1, Mike Keenan takes it out on Trevor Linden Linden, in his 1st game back after missing 4 weeks w/groin injury, is talking to the team. Enter Keenan: "Sit down, you ???? idiot! Shut thefrack up! Just shut the frack up! Who are you anyway? What have you ever done?" Really? Torts might be bombastic and not hold back and maybe he'll call out players and maybe he'll go over the line a wee bit from time to time. But he is no Mike Keenan, and no, you don't want Keenan back here.
  8. and this
  9. Torts won't be Keenan unless we somehow aquire Marchand or Keith. Even then, no-one out d-bags Messier
