  1. I think the main reason they are doing this is probably due to social distancing. They are likely going to have to limit the arenas to 50% full anyways, so basically they are looking for STH's who are willing to volunteer to give up their tickets.
  2. That's my go-to also. In the event that Jeeves doesn't know, then I usually go with www.lycos.com
  3. Sorry, but reused rain water to make the ice? That is ridiculous. Amazon is the worst offender. They ship out tiny items in huge massive cardboard boxes. They sell bottled water and plastic bags and anything you want. Anyone with a brain can tell that this is just a marketing campaign to try and convince people that Amazon isn't the devil. https://www.utilitydive.com/news/amazon-2b-climate-pledge-draws-praise-skepticism-as-total-carbon-footprin/580424/
  4. So it's okay if I reply to this post with: ZzZZzzZZ okay boomer, take a chill pill before you have a heart attack! Maybe go and feed some ducks okay boomer? It's comments like that I see all over the place which are immature and clearly insulting. No one is using "boomer" in the same way you describe (like hank or wilbur). The millennials probably wouldn't like it if they got a nick name, like "Lennys" (millennyal). "I saw a lenny throwing a fit today at the grocery store. I guess they ran out of avacado toast! Poor little lenny maybe he can go cry about it on snapchat" Again not really helpful for bridging generations and it has nothing to do with being "thick skinned". And by the way, saying people are "so easy offended today" is about the most "boomer" thing you say and would result in an "okay boomer" (rolleyes, laugh) from most kids.
  5. I think the term Karen is pretty juvenile and stereotypical. I would hate to be a white woman with the name Karen, yet I am sure there are many lovely Karen's out there. So many other ways to go but it seems like society needs a #hashtag for everything. Muddles the point and makes me not care. Sort of the same with #boomers. Why insult people? #blacklivesmatter makes way more sense... RAISE your people up, instead of insulting other people and dragging others down. Using slurs like "Karen" and "Boomer" will do nothing for your cause and will actually further empower those you are insulting and give them motivation to vote for Trump in November just out of spite.
  6. They are sneaky they charged credit cards before even sending out emails.
  7. Got a bunch of cancelled emails from stubhub today they say I owe them $4500. But they are not refunding buyers only giving them coupons.
  8. The Canucks are going to refund all tickets to STM's, even transfered ones. It is then your responsibility to refund stubhub and then stubhub will refund (aka give the buyer a "coupon") ... how nice of them. Imagine if stubhub goes bankrupt with all these 120% coupons owing, how bad that would be and how angry people would be.
  9. Officer is charged with 3rd degree murder/manslaughter and it took them 3 days to bring charges against him. Anyone else who did that would have been charged with 1st degree murder and arrested on the spot. People are angry about white privilige/police privilige/wealth disparity. I don't get why people keep saying "These riots aren't about this, they are about other things"... of course they are! These riots are about hundreds of things... but they are being brought up again (and will continue to be brought up) until there is true equality. This has to begin with departments. Police departments should have a similar racial makeup as the neighbourhoods they police.
  10. There's a LIVE STREAM on youtube of seattle. Things are getting REAL. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aH7yi0FmZEk
  11. I assume you mean stocks. I've been in all cash since before the dow crashed and I think this recent surge in stocks is a farce. I think Monday is going to be a bloodbath and all of next week will see the dow drop 20% or something.
  12. Would be a shame to win a cup this year somehow and have dummies around the league be like "Yeah it doesn't count though". Haters gonna hate.
  13. The 4-6 weeks wait-time for a refund is a bit cheeky, but I won't complain too much. I guess they are not going to start processing the refunds until June. I wonder what this means for the sales on stubhub? I haven't heard from stubhub yet. I wonder if in their eyes the NHL season isn't officially canceled yet. But since the Canucks are refunding/crediting ticket holders then I would imagine other places should do it too. I had an idea the other day... if the Canucks are truly going to play in empty arenas, then this is the perfect time for them to implement 4k video via a paid subscription service. I would happily pay $20 a month just to watch all NHL games in 4k. In my opinion all games should be in 4k, it's time. Would be a good way for them to make some money back too. I also wonder if they could mount virtual reality sets to seats and let people watch games live in VR from prime seating areas.
  14. Everything I have seen so far has given me the indication that at this point no one is "locked in" to any type of renewal. Did you guys get the same email offering you a full refund?
  15. We've received your request to refund your 2019.20 Membership credit to your original method of payment. You should receive your refund within the next 4 - 6 weeks.Over the coming weeks, we will send you further information regarding your 2020.21 Season Ticket Membership renewal including an updated invoice reflective of your pricing adjustment, instructions on how to hold your seats for next season, and full details about the new flexible payment options if that is of interest to you.If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out to your account representative, or email us at membership.info@canucks.com.From all of us at Canucks Sports and Entertainment, thank you for your continued support as a valued Season Ticket Member.Sincerely,Your Vancouver Canucks
  16. Per my above post, there is a deadline - June 3. And if you don't pick an option by then, they apply it towards next season by default. So make sure you pick an option by June 3. Please indicate your preference by Wednesday, June 3 2020. Should you not choose either of the above options by this date, we will automatically apply your 2019.20 credit to the 2020.21 season, and provide you with the new 2020.21 membership benefits.
  17. I am getting a full refund, no doubt about it. Those perks are not very good. If you add up the total perks it really doesn't equal much. Like Curt broke it down, basically you are saving around $280, but the food and beverage credit of $200 only costs them like $50 maybe (because their food is marked up 75% at least). So they are basically giving us $120 to not take the refund. I already have money on my food and beverage card which is going to go to waste. I am not even sure if I will renew my package at this point. I think I am done. To anyone considering applying your deposit to future package, before you do it I urge you to consider the followng: #1) There is no rush. No need to do it today, or tomorrow. No deadline. Sleep on it. #2) Be aware your money could be locked up for years. If there is no 20.21 season, it could be held until, theoretically, September 2021. That means your money is tied up for like 17 months. #3) By accepting the offer, you are agreeing to renew your package and even if there is a season it will likely be very low demand. If you plan to resell tickets be warned that this next season will likely see extremely low resale prices. #4) The offers are likely to get BETTER, not worse. Never take the first offer. "In chess, the pawns go first". The Canucks are begging you to accept this and lock in right away. I am willing to bet that if you take the refund now, you can negotiate a better deal later. The more people who take refunds and don't renew = more perks that will be given out.
  18. Only a matter of time now. I expect to hear something this week about options.
  19. I emailed them in early March and cancelled auto-renew. But I don't think it matters. I don't think anyone was "renewed" on March 16th. No charges were made. Also, if the season is different and only starts in November or December they will need to give people the option to cancel. Forcing it down throats would do nothing but result in lawsuits and anger and people would not come back in 2021. I think kindness is the way for them to go here, not forcing people to renew.
  20. Silence from the Canucks so far. Waiting to hear what they do. The 150% refund is not enough to get me to renew because next season is going to be very low demand. I don't want to lose a bunch of money on tickets I can't resell. Could see some pretty low attendance next season..
  21. This is probably the best news the bars/pubs have ever heard. Imagine if hockey starts up in October with empty arenas? That's 18,500 fans that will probably flood pubs and bars and restaurants to watch the game. It could be like the golden age again
  22. There will be an * beside the cup winner no matter what. For instance, if the games are played in 4 arenas only, then those 4 teams will have home ice advantage. Imagine a Stanley Cup Finals where the games are played all in Edmonton ,and Edmonton is in the finals? Lots of problems here. Also the time off has allowed some injured teams to heal, while healthier teams will not be able to take advantage of it as much. I think the asterix is pretty much a done deal at this point. As long as Round 4 is 7 games long I dont see it being a problem.
