  3. Any idea where I would be able to access for free / purchase high quality photos of the 2011 Cup Run? Thinking of printing large posters

  4. Morgan Rielly and Tessa Virtue are wayyy too cute

  5. When a $500 per day Zamboni driver goaltender beats your Maple Laffs goaltender with a cap hit of $26 882 per day :lol:

      I think the Toronto fans are about to lose their minds,4321,ouch

       

      This is why I love this game,I genuine guy comes in and a HERO IS MADE.

      This is what happens when you put all your cap into the offense. 

  6. Funny how the Subban and Weber trade has turned out this season. 

  7. Which is the less harmful sin? Addiction to alcohol (alcoholic), sex (i.e. escorts) or drugs?

      having a sex partner addicted to drugs and alcohol, would be the worst unless she owned a beer wagon.

      I think they're all bad. Alcohol is legal, but the other ones are not. Legally speaking, you'll be in trouble if you get caught doing either one or both.

       

      That being said, excessive alcohol is just as (if not more) destructive to the normal lifestyle of a person.

      I have the opinion that drugs should be decriminalized, but heavily regulated. Criminalizing it is not fixing the problem. It's actually making it worse (the drug problem). It's not like people are gonna throw their hands up in the air and say "oh well, it's illegal. Guess I can't do blow."

  8. Could Thatcher Demko be a dark horse Calder candidate? 

    1. goalie13

      goalie13

      Highly unlikely.  The only way is if Marky gets injured in the next game and Demko carries the team for the rest of the season and even then, it's doubtful.  Just ask Jordan Binnington.

    2. Quantum

      Quantum

      Not right now. Markstrom would need to suffer a season ending injury and Demko would probably have to take the Canucks to the playoffs in a Vezina calibre performance to be considered for it. He could get a vote or two (as a 5th place vote) but I doubt it. Though, Demko is having a terrific start to his first season.

       

      Quinn Hughes is a more likely Calder winner on this team. But right now Cale Makar is the front runner. 

  9. Schaller has 4 more goals than Lucic - just sayin

      1/2 retained for Loui. Lets do it, if for nothing else than to have both Edmonton and Calgary retaining money on him. 

  10. My god Dahlin is gifted. 

    1. NHL'er

      Already a very solid #1 in Buffalo and he’s not even 20

    2. SabreFan1

      And the Sabres just won in OT!!!

  11. Would you do Kuemper and Dahlin for Dumba in fantasy?

      Drive-By Body Pierce

      If he stays healthy, I think Dumba will have more goals. I think point totals will be very close. Dumba probably has the edge in +/- as well. There is also the potential for the dreaded "sophmore slump" for Dahlin, though I wouldn't count on that for a player of his calibre.

    3. Drive-By Body Pierce

      Drive-By Body Pierce

      You could also look at if you are doing the opposing GM a favour by upgrading him in goal. 

    4. Drive-By Body Pierce

      Drive-By Body Pierce

      I think I have convinced myself the other way from choosing to go for Dumba. Coming off injury as well... Keep Dahlin and Kuemper.

      Became kinda a cliche, when we were kids. Sisters would wail that song when anyone's plans got kiboshed..guess in context it was usually okay for a chuckle.

       

      I hope your next shindig is like SRV's, "House Is Rockin"(don't bother knockin')...

      Keep in touch online, and after a bit of time you'll both know if you want to see each other again.  if so, one will fly to meet the other in their home country, you spend some time together, and then you should know.

      @Agoork solid advice, thanks! And thanks rest of CDC ahaha especially @debluvscanucks :lol:

      I was actually in the same boat.  Met a girl from Denmark in the Caribbean and we only had a week together before she went back home.  After keeping in touch, I flew to Europe to see her 6 months later - was only supposed to stay a week, but extended it to 2 weeks, we fell in love, then shortly after, spent the summer together camping and travelling around BC and Alberfta, and fate was sealed.   I married her overlooking Bow Falls in Banff, and we now have 2 teenage kids. 

  14. Best way to solve the HK riots? Engulf the crowds in a cloud of cannabis smoke. Tryamkin's fave.

    1. Alflives

      Maybe the pillow of smog that covers Hong Kong could be seeded with cannabis?  

    2. SabreFan1

      SabreFan1

      I don't blame the people in Hong Kong.  China is breaking the terms of the deal they made with the UK and HK's politicians are completely complicit in selling their autonomy away at the expense of their people.

      Strangely it only takes losing a cup final to make Vancouverites riot. 

      Wonder which of our rights would have to be threatened for people to react here?

       

       

  15. Ferland for 3.5 x 4 or Brandon Tanev 3.5 x 6? :ph34r:

      Anyone remember an old animated clip on YouTube where some GM's from teams that he's meeting butcher his name in all kinds of ways?  "By-foo-loo-GEE-Lee-in".  "It's Buff-Lin".  

    3. ForestFalcon

      I did a bit of a double take, took me a few second to realize who he was referring to. Truly fantastic name butchering, gotta love it!

      actually like big buff, just didnt when he was with the hawks.

  17. Edler and Myers top duo? Rockets throwback yes pls. 

  18. Lawyer in me has come up with a new idea to weaponize cap space. If team X wants to sign, say, Panarin for a cap hit of 8m whilst Panarin still gets paid 12m AAV, team X can agree with team Y to sign Panarin at 12m AAV, then trade him immediately upon signing whilst retaining 4m, for some form of consideration. Technically legal. But way too ballsy.

      the issue will be cap circumvention

      it is not a friend of bettman

      if he views a transaction as being framed to accomplish cap circumvention

      he'll bring out the big guns and luongo the teams

      review last year's posts after the draft

      people were saying the same thing about lind and gadj

      let's see how the next year progresses before suggesting players have arrived

       

      the players who really arrived were the ones that were drafted and then blew it all up in their next season, brock, ep40, gaudette, etc... dahlin did fine too. but then cratered in north america

      lind and gadj did not shine in their draft +1 season

      i'm gonna celebrate more once we see some progression from the newly drafted lot

    3. SILLY GOOSE

      JB seemed pretty pumped about him.   Brackett as well.  "best hands in the draft" lol.  High praise

  20. Can we photoshop Jack Hughes doing [insert illegal substance here] so that teams freak out and he drops to us? :ph34r:

      Why stop at him? With enough Photoshop prowess, we could have Hughes and Kakko recreate the opening of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

      Not sure if Aho does that well in the Western conference. Not sure if 2 1sts, 2nd and a 3rd are worth giving up. Lots of question marks in this trade.

    4. Drive-By Body Pierce

      Drive-By Body Pierce

      Carolina has the cap space to match. As much as I'd like to see Aho on the Canucks, its not going to happen.

  22. Love Luke Schenn. Goes in and stands up for Petey right away.

      He's definitely a keeper.  No question.

  24. Should I trade Lehner for Rinne in my fantasy pool?

  25.  

    Nylander. 2 assists in 7 games. 10.27m  cap hit. Leivo. 4 goals 1 assist in 9 games. $925k.

      I still can’t believe Wee Willie got those dollars.  He’s getting more than a lot of really honest hockey players, like Bo!  What the hell are Matthews and Marner going to get?  14 million?  They’re both twice as good as Willie Boy.
