  1. I didn't actually take it, but it's the view I have from my home
  2. I didn't realize that was his dad. The company I use to work for almost went in on a project with him on the island when a lot of that sh!t was going down. Obviously we backed out.
  3. From Maple Ridge, then moved to Van.. And then into the Arctic to a town called Tromsø, Norway.
  4. As much as I dislike Baertschi being waived, I find it interesting people talking about how well he performs when not injured. Everybody wants sutter and tanev gone because they only play half a season and say it's wasted cap space. Isn't that a bit hypocritical? Tanev is arguably more valuable when healthy. And maybe the same could be said about Sutter.
  5. Haha, you got me. But I brag about my wife all the time, so it's nothing new.
  6. This happens every year with several players. Look at canucks fans, each draft pick is the next (fill in superstar). Trading away a draft pick is dangerous for the player we get. They are then an easy target for a what could have been. Bo went through it because we traded away schneider for him. Look at the recent interview. He had a tough time at the start. I predict Miller will be an easy one that fans jump on, if he struggles, because we traded away a 1st for him. Jake's problem is he was drafted 6th overall. Look at how fans are with Juolevi. It's a ridiculous occurance with fans. Expectations are way too high. Unfortunately, everyone (players) is tuned a little different. Some get it right away, some take time, so e need a change, and some never get it. So to answer your question, it's because he was drafted 6th overall. If people would realize that maybe they should tone down there expectations, and let the players play, they may not have all this "hate".
  7. I've got a funny story about him not being focused. A few years ago I took my wife to her first game (she's Norwegian), against the Kings. We had first row seats and got there early to watch the pregame skate. As he was skating by he eye f@#ked the $hit out of her, then turned to look at me as if to say; how did you get her? They went on to lose 6-0.
  8. Thank you for that. That brought a wave of emotions. I truly miss being in Vancouver during hockey season. Well ok, I miss Vancouver in general, but especially during hockey season.
  9. This thread is becoming a bit too repetitive. I come on here looking for updates and all it is, is people spewing the same thing over and over again. I get it, this is a forum, people discuss things, but now it's just getting silly. (you see what I did there? I pretty much said the same thing three different ways, and wasted your time ;)) Can we not lock this, and start a new one when there comes actual news.
  10. Williams is either going to retire or sign with the canes. Read that somewhere but can't find it again, and that was waddell that said that.
  11. If we signed Zuccarello we would get a whole nation of supporters in Norway. They love him, and follow every move. It's a little bit ridiculous, though; how good they think he is. I mean he's good but not Crosby good as they assume... OK I'm exaggerating by that comparison, but it's to prove a point.
  12. This was a nice trip down memory lane: https://theprovince.com/sports/hockey/nhl/vancouver-canucks/the-luongo-van-provies-we-bid-adieu-to-class Sorry, I'm not sure how to embedd the link
  13. It's a great place to live. Fantastic quality of life
