  1. While I would prefer the Oilers win this round, I say it will be the Ducks in 6.
  2. Hopefully Toews, Keith and Seabrook get invites now that Chicago's season is over.
  3. Hockey Canada has confirmed the first 18 players on the roster: https://www.hockeycanada.ca/en-ca/news/2017-mwc-first-18-players-named-for-iihf-worlds In goal, Eric Comrie (Edmonton/Winnipeg, NHL) and Calvin Pickard (Winnipeg/Colorado, NHL) Defencemen Tyson Barrie (Victoria, B.C./Colorado, NHL), Calvin De Haan (Carp, Ont./New York Islanders, NHL), Jason Demers (Dorval, Que./Florida, NHL), Michael Matheson (Pointe-Claire, Que./Florida, NHL), and Josh Morrissey (Calgary/Winnipeg, NHL); And forwards Sean Couturier (Bathurst, N.B./Philadelphia, NHL), Matt Duchene (Haliburton, Ont./Colorado, NHL), Claude Giroux (Hearst, Ont./Philadelphia, NHL), Alex Killorn (Beaconsfield, Que./Tampa Bay, NHL), Travis Konecny (Clachan, Ont./Philadelphia, NHL), Ryan O’Reilly (Varna, Ont./Buffalo, NHL), Nathan MacKinnon (Cole Harbour, N.S./Colorado, NHL), Brayden Point (Calgary/Tampa Bay, NHL), Mark Scheifele (Kitchener, Ont./Winnipeg, NHL), Wayne Simmonds (Scarborough, Ont./Philadelphia, NHL), and Jeff Skinner (Toronto/Carolina, NHL).
  4. Sorry. I cruised backwards through a few pages and didn't see anything. On the bright side, it's not like I started a whole new thread for it.
  5. You're crazy.
  6. Sorry if this was already covered in the previous 23 pages... Here's a report that the Canucks have had talks with Dave Lowry. They can't confirm what role they exactly have in mind for him, just that they have been talking to him. http://victoriasportsnews.com/will-dave-lowry-be-named-as-the-vancouver-canucks-head-coach/ Personally, I'm not a big fan of this idea. I'm fine if Green and/or Lowry wind up as assitants, but I would like to see the new coach be someone that already has NHL experience (and success).
  7. I agree, the rule was totally unfair. Why should a team have to give up compensation for a fired employee? If anything, the new team is doing the previous team a favour because they won't be on the hook for the remainder of that coach's contract. Now, if you hire away someone's assistant coach or an active coach to be your coach, then compensation is deserved.
  8. I'm not sold on Green. All the arguments given for Green sound very familiar to those given for Willie before he was hired, except Willie's resume was even better. Assistant Coach for World Jr Gold, two WHL Championships, WHL coach of the year & a Calder Cup Championship. Still, in the end, it didn't work out. I would like to see someone with actual NHL experience & NHL success this time around.
  9. Really though, Clark has only been the leader for 6 years, not 2 decades. Although it's still the same party, lots of the players changed after Campbell left and many long term Liberals bailed out before the last election. I know people have a lot of issues with the Liberals. But you don't even sound convinced that the NDP are an improvement. I'm certainly not convinced yet that they are. I worry that it seems like their answer to every issue is to spend their way out of the problem. The only people I know that are convinced are some teachers I know, and only because they figure the NDP will give them everything they ever wanted. I wish we had a real 3rd option but the Greens just haven't impressed me yet. They still seem more like a protest party rather than a viable alternative. I am going to try my best to keep an open mind over the next few weeks.
  10. A couple of people had Don Rickles... http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/06/entertainment/don-rickles-dead/index.html
  11. Go Habs Go! But I think the Rangers will win this in 6.
  12. Sure, but that wasn't the OP's idea for the thread.
  13. I can tell you what happens right now. Nothing.
  14. Ah CDC. The place where, after the NHL announces it is not going to the Olympics, we get a thread for Olympic lineups featuring only NHL players.
  15. The only way Benning could have manipulated the game plan would have been to trade away players and make the team incapable of winning, no matter how hard they tried. There is NO WAY that a GM goes to the coach and demands, or even suggests that he not play certain players in order to lose games. You even stated that Willie will play who he needs to play to win. The players will play to win. It's only the GM that can impact their ability to win and the only way he can do that is to move assets out of the organization, and we're way past the trade deadline. So if you are looking for a tank, you need to be looking at what Benning does in the off-season to set this team up for non-success next year. It's too late for this year. btw - It's steal.
