  1. I was just curious, how does Olli Juolevi compare to Jakob Chychrun? Of course Juolevi is still playing in juniors but Chychrun is already playing in the NHL. Which one of the two are projected to have the higher ceiling?
  2. Does anyone have a clip of the Tryamkin hit on Benn?
  3. I wonder if any teams had serious offers for Miller during the TDL. It seems pretty sure he will walk most likely sign with Vegas. Can Vegas trade us anything for his signing rights?
  4. Can they please get rid of the stupid agency font and use regular block lettering for the numbers like they used to. The agency font was one of the worst things ever put onto hockey jerseys...
  5. http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/02/06/vince-li-freedom_n_14631682.html The mother of a man beheaded by a fellow bus passenger in Manitoba says her son's killer is seeking an absolute discharge almost eight years after he was found not criminally responsible. Carol de Delley, in a social media post last week, said justice officials told her Vince Li — who now goes by the name Will Baker — will ask the Criminal Code Review Board for a discharge at a hearing Feb. 6. If granted, no conviction will be registered and he won't be required to follow any conditions, de Delley wrote on Facebook Vince Li move to independent living considered by review board Tory MP asks Manitoba review board to deny Vince Li more freedom Beheading still haunts bus passengers She suggested a discharge is "the lowest-level adult sentence that an offender can get. "The offender is finished with their case that day," she wrote. Baker killed Tim McLean during a bus trip along the Trans-Canada Highway near Portage la Prairie in July 2008. He sat next to the 22-year-old McLean on the bus from Edmonton to Winnipeg after the young man smiled at him and asked how he was doing. Baker said he heard the voice of God telling him to kill the young carnival worker or "die immediately." He repeatedly stabbed McLean while the young man fought for his life. As passengers fled the bus, Baker continued stabbing and mutilating the body before he was arrested. He was found to be not criminally responsible due to a mental illness — schizophrenia. Baker was originally kept in a secure wing at the Selkirk Mental Health Centre, but the board has granted him increasing freedoms almost every year. His medical team has said he has been a model patient and understands the need to continue to take anti-psychotic medication. MP wants request denied At his last review board hearing, Baker was granted the right to live on his own, but subject to monitoring and random drug tests. The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 1999 that a review board must order an absolute discharge if a person doesn't pose a significant threat to public safety. The ruling added there must be clear evidence of a significant risk to the public for the review board to continue imposing conditions after a person is found not criminally responsible. Archie Kaiser, an expert in mental health and the law at Dalhousie University in Halifax, said there's a poor public understanding of what "not criminally responsible" means. The emphasis must be on the individual's treatment and potential risk to the community, not on punishment. "There is widespread stigma and prejudice when it concerns people with mental illness and that's something that persons found not criminally responsible bear in double measure," Kaiser said. "People think if you have a serious mental-health problem that you're going to act unpredictably, that you're incapable of making decisions and you're dangerous, whereas none of those things are likely to be true." Kaiser also suggested involvement with the justice system serves to amplify concerns about an individual, "so people have at least two levels of prejudice that they're fighting against." Manitoba Tory MP James Bezan said Baker's request for a discharge should be denied — and Bezan expects it will be. "Will Baker, regardless of the name that he goes by, still beheaded and cannibalized Tim McLean," he said in an emailed statement. He called an absolute discharge an insult to the victim's family and a risk to public safety. "Tim McLean's family's rights and well-being should be at the forefront of the court's decision. The family has endured significant loss and suffering ... (and) to allow a murderer to be released without any conviction or conditions would simply be wrong."
  6. Who has the better offensive skills between Boeser & Virtanen ? Everyone keeps raving about Boeser being our next top 6 fwd prospects but I am want to know which one of the two will be the better player .
  7. Anyone catch that gaff by some commentator on cbc after the women's 4x200 swimming relay? He was talking about how the 14 year old Chinese swimmer "dropped the ball, too excited, went out like a stink, dives like a pig, thanks for that, no they weren't, what goes there" The Elliott Friedman comes on and says "when we come back that conversation will air on cbc" That was pretty bad...
  8. Knowing our luck I won't be surprised if JB & co are forced to forfit a pick.
  9. Looking back now I am happy with picking Olli Juolevi, I wish him all the best and hope to see him as our future top pairing dman. I just hope we don't rush him through and let him develop into the player we expect him to be.
  10. I will say it was emotional see Jost and his family when he was called up at 10 bu Colorado. Will be interesting to see if Jost and Boser play on the same line and how they gel. But it will burn seeing if they rip it up as Jost is Colorado's prospect.
  11. Oh well I am so sorry to have hurt your feelings. I didn't know it was against board rules. to post anything that "reeks of passive negativity".
  12. Please tell me where in my post I listed flaws regarding anyone we picked? What I said is that I was upset we didn't add any picks, mainly from the trade deadline.
  13. I agree, it just keeps burning as to how (in the position we were in with the assets we had) we couldn't add some more picks for this draft at the trade deadline. Not sure what next season holds for us but if we are in a similar situation at next years deadline I will know not to hold my breath.
  14. http://vancouversun.com/sports/hockey/nhl/vancouver-canucks/jason-botchford-at-the-nhl-draft BUFFALO, N.Y. — Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin isn’t ready to forgive the Canucks just yet. And the way he sounds, it may not happen any time soon. After Friday’s first round of the National Hockey League entry draft, Bergevin was still visibly agitated with Vancouver GM Jim Benning, who said Thursday he had called Montreal about a potential trade for defenceman PK Subban. “I was not happy and I’m still not happy about that,” Bergevin said. “The league is looking into it.” Bergevin, in fact, filed a complaint with the league after Benning’s appearance on TSN 104o AM, during which he was asked about Subban and said: “I think there’s lots of teams who have reached out to him (Bergevin) to find out what it would take to complete a deal of that magnitude. We are one of the teams who have talked to him. “But we haven’t gone down the path to make believe that’d be something that’s real or not. It’s a high price.” The NHL spoke with Benning on Friday about his Subban comments and those he made about Steven Stamkos. In the same radio hit, Benning admitted he planned to call Stamko’s agent when teams, aside from Tampa, can engage in contract talks. It’s a period that began Saturday. After his discussion with the NHL, Benning refused to talk about other teams’ players and anything to do with free agency. The league told him they’d take a few days to make a decision but many are expecting Benning and the Canucks will be fined. “He crossed the line,” Bergevin said. “I don’t know where the line was crossed but he definitely crossed the line. It can’t happen.” Generally, it’s against NHL rules to even suggest interest in another team’s players while they are under contract. The Toronto Maple Leafs were fined after Ron Wilson, who was their head coach at the time, said in a radio interview the Leafs would be interested in the Sedin twins a month before they were to become free agents in 2009. Then, it was the Canucks who filed a complaint. The Leafs were fined $25,000 for those comments. jbotchford@postmedia.com twitter.com/botchford
