  1. I enjoyed when the shots were around 24-10 and they were saying that it was misleading... Then they eventually came around and saw how the game really was being played.
  2. Unfortunately I had the displeasure of having to listen to the King's broadcast. As painful as they are, they fully admitted that the canucks dominated in every aspect of the game. It was beautiful.
  3. Just 24 hours ago we were planning the parade, and now the sky is falling. I'd say I'm surprised, but this is vancouver fans in a nutshell. We are not going to win every game, and some losses are going to be ones we should have won. Let it be. If this happens several games in a row then we can start panicking. These are growing pains, and hopefully; they will learn from it.
  4. I didn't actually take it, but it's the view I have from my home
  5. 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.
  6. From Maple Ridge, then moved to Van.. And then into the Arctic to a town called Tromsø, Norway.
  7. 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.
  8. Haha, you got me. But I brag about my wife all the time, so it's nothing new.
  9. 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".
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. It's a great place to live. Fantastic quality of life
  17. I still remember where I was when we traded for Luongo. I was at yvr making the move from Van to Norway. 12 years ago this summer. It was a pleasure experiencing your career, Lu. Happy retirement!
  18. Still, by far, one of my all time favorite hockey moments
  19. How is this even a discussion? The responses should read: page 1: Messier x20 page 2: Messier x20 page 3: Messier x20 page 4: Messier x20 page 5: Messier x20 page 6: Messier x20 page 7: Messier x20 page 8: Messier x20 page 9: Messier x20 oh... only 6 pages in this thread: Messier x20
  20. What you said, and what you meant are two different things. Anyway, I’m not here to argue. I purposely picked players from different eras. And no matter what, you were talking about a specific player in lucic, and a style of play. I just pointed out players that play(ed) with integrity that all have/had made it far in their careers. I understand what you mean, I just disagree with what you actually said.
  21. Gretzky, sakic, yzerman, Sedins, crosby, linden, ovechkin, naslund, stamkos, toewes... just to name a few that play(ed) with integrity and have (had) long successful careers...so, sorry, your statement is incorrect.
  22. And about 10th overall. Let’s remeber we got Bo at 9, so we are still capable of getting a great player!
