  1. Hammer was all pro. One of my top 5 favourite Canucks defenseman, for sure.

  3. Losing Ferland (again) sucks! I'm hoping the silver lining is that it keeps Virtanen in the lineup. I want to see some more playoff Jake.

  5. Walk straight off the golf course into some playoff hockey? I've dreamt of this.
  6. That's tough, man. You can't want it or care about it more than that person, it will never work that way. She has to want it for herself..maybe makeup or the latest fashion doesn't interest her in the slightest and there is nothing you can do about that. It sounds like she is an awesome person, which sometimes is hard to find these days. Are YOU happy with who you are in the relationship? If you feel like you can't be YOU with somebody because you want something different from them, maybe you have to look at that?
  7. Gentleman, back on track. Far too many reports based around personal attacks. If somebody has a different opinion than you, that is ok, you do not have to engage them and bring someones profession into question, that has no bearing on the conversation at hand. Consider this a warning for all.
  8. Looking for Canucks Fans from the 1970s/80s to help me with a few names as I am making a top 10 Canucks enforcers/fighters. The basic requirement would be they were Canucks for at least 100 games (Season+). Only problem is, I don't know any of the older tough guys (I do have Jack McIlhargy) but basing it just off of career PIMs isn't ideal, wanting names for big, mean, and nasty enforcers/fighters.

      @NewbieCanuckFan How would you have described Tanti as a player, then? Was he one of those guys like Brendan Morrison who had his best career years because of the line he played on? Or was he still really good at doing things to create space, did he hit? fast? BTW, this thread has been awesome. We need a Canucks Nostalgia Fire Side chat thread, I am a nostalgia nerd and constantly come across players I have questions about. Just the other day I read a cool story about how Troy Gamble was supposed to be the guy and it came down to Kirk McLean wanting it more and earning the spot whereas Troy sort of fizzled out, but was a huge prospect.

      @diesel_3  Kind of like a Luc Robitaille (but with better skating ability).  Knew how to find the "right spots" and/or good anticipation.  All he needed was the 'right center' to feed him the puck (and that guy was Sundstrom).  Bear in mind, this is from the perspective of a non-teenager (*me* lol).:P

       

      Yeah Troy Gamble was like a Eddie Lack - lots of potential.  But he just couldn't get over that final hump to the 'big leagues' like at least Eddie Lack did.  That's why goalie prospects are pretty risky.  Good thing the Canucks (unlike what Burke said "goalies graveyard') have been good at developing goalies for a while now (gives me hope for Demko being the future starter).

      I hope Boeser (other than staying healthy heh) could find that sustained magic with EP (though in Boeser's defense, he seems to be able to score no matter who is center is - he just can't stay healthy).

    Been hit and miss last couple weeks, found out on short notice my wife is deploying to Kuwait for 7 months, but i'll have plenty of time after that! Thanks to all who have joined the 649 regiment, apparently you can be in 10 regiments at one time and can just change your tag. Bought the full game and have been doing shoot the ship to improve my 1v1 battles. I've only played 150 WZ games but have 12 wins! Such a fun and intense game when it gets down to the final circle! I also suck at BR solos, always get killed by a guy just hiding in the room of a building hahaha.

    We just use in-game. However, it is really buggy with the cross platform so some times when I join a party or after a few games my voice icon goes away disabling my voice. I just do a reboot and it works again.
