  1. 1. One semester away from finishing my double major in Political Science and International Relations at UBC 2. I have 9k in loans so far. It'll probably stay that way. 3. Every bit of it. Went on exchange for a semester and I'm currently doing co-op. Did 2 terms at Global Affairs Canada, doing 2 more for BC's Ministry of Finance right now. 4. Ideally, working right after my undergrad would be cool, but doing a Master's in Public Policy is something I'm considering. If you're going into social sciences, it's not all doom and gloom. Just make sure you're doing something with your time in university - don't just coast through your 4 years in a lecture hall. I was pretty close to do doing this until I got a wake up call and decided to do something with my time at UBC in my 4th year. It's going to take me 6 years to finish my undergrad, but it's all worth it with the stuff I've ended up doing. No regrets at all. Doesn't hurt to have co-op paying off my tuition as well.
  2. So...I'm seriously considering to buy some pounds. Anyone else?
  3. Everyone seems to have suddenly forgotten how built this guy is. 190 pounds at 5'10 is pretty damn big.
  4. Re-watched Torts' end of season press conference 2 years back...the guy doesn't get enough credit for being the very first trigger for this rebuild. Blatantly called out the lack of youth on the team several times.

      Don't push this...

      I remember that presser well. I was on and off the Torts train all year long, but the guy was not the coach we needed at all. I laugh at all the people who said "You wait and see what he does with CBJ this year, you'll see". Well, where are all of you now?

       

      Nevertheless, he nailed it with the core being stale, rebuilding on the fly is tough to do, but not impossible, you need to have some luck, and some prospects that are somewhat ready to jump in right away, and cap space, or moveable players. We were working with a short hand. 

       

      Add in the question about what ownership says about roster moves and who's to say Tort's was the guy responsible? All I say is he was the 1st one to put it that way bluntly in public. Then he and MG were fired an they still tried to compete. 

       

      So yeah I find it interesting, but still don't think he was the trigger. Maybe I'm wrong.

      2006-2012... a big black hole in drafting. That's why we are where we are now. Horvat and Co. and the twins. About a 15 year gap where the reigns are being passed

  5. Looks like Chicago is going to get their hands on another free asset... Sigh...what else is new?
  6. I do too, but I don't feel like getting into a heated exchange with the people in question; I have better things to do.
  7. So much unnecessary doom and gloom being spewed around Boeser and Demko these days. I wonder what the reactions would be if Vesey decided not to ditch Nashville? Some of you guys need to look at the big picture and remember that the occurrences of college seniors choosing to go into free agency is, at the end of the day, quite rare. Kevin Hayes, Blake Wheeler, Justin Schultz, Jimmy Vesey...correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe those are the only 4 out of multiple drafted college seniors who decided to sign with a different team in recent history. Back to Boeser...I took a look back at the NBC feed of the 2015 Draft, and according to McGuire, Boeser had the chance to play the U-18 Worlds, but decided not to because he wanted to stay with his team. Sounds like the guy is pretty loyal, so don't be surprised if he decides to stay with UND. That being said, who's to say that he won't show the same loyalty when it comes to coming into the NHL (i.e. when the time comes to sign with Vancouver)? TL;DR: Chill out people.
  8. Couldn't agree more. The Prospects forum is becoming quite a chore to read, as I've been having to scroll through a bunch of garbage posts to get to some real insightful comments these past few weeks.
  9. Is management availability tomorrow?
  10. If anyone doubted Weber's departure after this season, the way he just answered some of those questions should put the nail in the coffin. The dude sounds frustrated and done.
  11. Boeser - Matthews - Caggiula Sedin - Sedin - Hansen Canucks top 6 for the 2016/2017 season
  12. SIGN THE ENTIRE UND TEAM JB No but seriously, this Caggiula kid is awesome. Stetcher has looked decent too.
  13. Even if he was available (looks like he isn't after all), Edmonton would beat any offer JB would make by a long shot.
  14. Who said buying a car was ever a good use of money; it's a form of conspicuous consumption, simple as that. You buy a car for convenience and its performance/aesthetics/etc, not for a potential return on your money.
  15. Feels good to know I'm with my people.
