  1. Character guy who is good to have on a team whether winning or losing. Hope he makes it.
  2. Child or baby, point being people do make mistakes for any number of reasons. I hope the next time you make one people are more accepting than you would be.
  3. It was foolish and costly for her to leave the car, but I wouldn't be so judgemental. The article mentions her baby was in the car. Parents of newborns are extremely sleep deprived and vulnerable to brain farts and domestic disputes. I'm surprised the government allows such access to these animals, to be able to do drive throughs.
  4. The guy's reaction is curious in this video. He gets out of the vehicle then hesitates as if he's about to go back in, then runs after the animal. If he had time to consider the best option at that point, it would be to get in his vehicle and try to run over the animal (while trying to avoid hitting his partner). And honking the horn the whole time.
  5. Any such global attempt like this would come at a cost, namely an invasion on everyone's privacy and loss of some other basic human rights. There is no easy solution with this one in my opinion. It's partially an unwanted side effect of democracy, mass populations, social media, mental health issues, gun availability, govt corruption, etc.
  6. This is more racism. Keep it more respectful.
  7. I'd call this a racist remark. A woman was mauled to death trying to save her daughter.
  8. I'm sorry, but If Hansen plays regularly on the top line this year again, we'll be sitting in the league's bottom five again.
  9. I wouldn't be surprised if he came back with a vengeance this season and popped in 20 on a second / third line. Last season he seemed off, coming back from a year with serious injuries including a broken / bruised ribs in the 2015/16 off season, which probably messed up his training schedule. This year, after the controversy about whether he should be bought out, I think he'll be very hungry to prove himself. He has always thrived at being an underdog and I think he'll demonstrate his worth this season.
  10. That's a pretty big conspiracy come to life - even bigger than what us Canucks fans think about the NHL conspiring against us. Imagine an entire government illegally aiding its athletes. Russian sport ministry oversaw Olympics doping and sample swapping program: McLaren RACHEL BRADY TORONTO — The Globe and Mail Published Monday, Jul. 18, 2016 9:04AM ED An independent investigation led by a Canadian law professor has confirmed evidence of widespread doping by Russian athletes and a complex state-sponsored system to protect them. At a Toronto hotel on Monday, Western University law professor Richard McLaren presented findings of his independent probe into alleged manipulation of doping samples by Russian athletes. It presents a damning picture of widespread doping across a number of sports. The report says that laboratories in Moscow and Sochi were involved in falsifying positive test results to protect doped Russian athletes, and that the Ministry of Sport directed, controlled and oversaw the manipulation of athletes’ test results. They had active assistance from both the Russian Federal Security Service (formerly known as the KGB) and the Centre of Sports Preparation (CSP). Russian doping scandal: Key takeaways and a primer on the WADA report McLaren was commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to lead an unbiased investigation after Grigory Rodchenkov, the former head of Moscow’s drug-testing laboratory, told The New York Times that he provided Russian athletes with steroids before the 2014 Sochi Olympics and helped switch tainted samples for clean ones through a concealed hole in the lab wall. Rodchenkov, who is now living in the U.S., said he was operating on instructions from Russia’s sports ministry. Over 57 days, McLaren’s commission did interviews, secured data from hard drives, retrieved deleted documents and did forensic analysis. They found evidence on bottles that indicated certain urine samples had been tampered with. “It was a fail-safe method of permitting cheating Russian athletes to compete while using performance-enhancing substances,” said McLaren. “I am supremely confident in our findings.” The report says that the Moscow lab operated a “disappearing positive methodology” in which positive drug tests were falsely recorded as negative when filed with WADA, by direct order from the Deputy Minister of Sport, Yuri Nagornykh. It adds that lab personnel did not have a choice in whether to be involved in the state-directed system. The Sochi lab, according to the report, was swapping dirty urine samples for clean ones through a small hole in the wall of a secure testing area during the night. The investigation found scratches and marks on the insides of some testing bottle caps, indicating they had been opened. They also found evidence in some cases that salt had been added to the urine. “The forensics evidence corroborates what Rodchenkov was saying,” said McLaren, whose commission interviewed Rodchenkov numerous times. ”I’m confident it was a truthful witness account.” The report includes a table that outlines all the sports involved in “disappearing positive” test results by Russian athletes. There were 30 sports listed spanning summer and winter Games. The most were found in athletics and weightlifting. The professor chose not to offer recommendations as to how WADA or the International Olympic Committee (IOC) should react to the information found in his report, even though in past independent commissions he’s led, he has made recommendations. McLaren said he had a short window to investigate due to the impending 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, and believes the investigation should be extended as he felt there is more to uncover. The report says the system was set up following what Russian sports authorities felt was an abysmal medal count by its athletes at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and was in place until August of 2015. The report fuels debate over whether Russian athletes should be banned from competing next month in the Rio Olympics. Russia’s track-and-field athletes are already banned.
  11. Canucks falter early in season, creating so much room on bandwagon that Florida Panther fans begin using CDC forum when their own forum crashes from capacity issues.
  12. Canucks management rediscover a dusty hyperbaric chamber from 1994 in the arena basement, with Adrien Plavsic stuck inside.
  13. CDC finally learns how split squad games work in the preseason. (..... wizards.. or... ?)
  14. Canucks get so tired of Edler's drop pass prior to entering the offensive zone on the power play that they only leave Markstrom / Miller back for him to drop it to.
  15. Hockey was so great back then. Classic Jets / Canucks. Beauty! That series was great to watch.
