    Do you understand hockey at all? He isn’t lost - they know where he is. Every player is going to have something to keep them sidelined here or there. This isn’t PlayStation.
  2. Ron spends a lot of time in Europe. He is actually revered among other scouts. Only people who seemingly think he isn't great at his job are Canuck fans.
  3. HHOF soon to call on 4 more former Canucks

    There is a douche category?

    Exactly. What a lot of kids need is time to become men without all the scrutiny.

    They’re called pectoral muscles. EP must see them in the shower and wonder if he’ll have them someday.

    There are pros and cons to location but don’t discount value of development outside of the microscope. Utica may be the best place for player like Virtanen when he was being over-scrutinized for everything from his clothes to his snacks.
  7. At least you don't want much. IF all those things happened, Benning would win Executive of the Year for a decade.
  8. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    One of the better players on either team in the game last night and clearly Green is very confident with him in key situations.
  9. You clearly have not a clue about what is actually happening for and some of the things you are saying and implying would be hurtful for those families beyond whatever you can likely understand. There is zero division among the parents - just shared grief and a lack on a clear path as everyone takes their own timetable to get to a place this needs to. The “huge mess” was these families losing their boys. Don’t try and make it something different.

  13. Please do not buy this book Parents of Humboldt Broncos players involved in bus crash urge people not to buy new book about the team By Blake LoughDigital Journalist Global News 2WS: HUMBOLDT BRONCOS AND SASKATOON BLADES RAISE AWARENESS FOR BLOOD DONATIONX ABOVE: New book about the Humboldt Broncos hockey team is facing criticism from some of the victims' families. - A A + Listen Family members of players involved in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash are harshly criticizing a new book about the hockey team and are urging people not to buy it. “The story of our family members is ours to tell, either individually or collectively, as we choose,” read a post on Toby Boulet’s Facebook account on Monday. Boulet’s son, Logan, was one of the players killed in the crash involving the Broncos’ team bus and a semi-truck. The crash on April 6 claimed 16 lives and injured over a dozen others. On Sept. 5, Barry Heath, a former Saskatchewan coroner and veterinarian, published his book titled Humble Beginnings of the Humboldt Broncos and the 2017-2018 Team. It is listed on the Indigo-Chapters website and is shown to be available at multiple locations in Saskatoon. “Please do not purchase this book,” Boulet wrote. “Dr. Heath asked families for input and not one family agreed to provide input. He was told that the families were not ready to tell the collective story about the tragic day in April.” The mother of Ryan Straschnitzki, one of the Broncos who survived the crash but was left paralyzed from the chest down, tweeted her displeasure with the author on Monday as well. Twitter Ads info and privacy “Do not buy the book,” she tweeted. “It was in no way supported or endorsed by the 29 families! It is not Dr. Heath’s story to tell.” “A man by the name Barry Heath has written a book about the tragedy and nightmare we have all been living,” Christina George-Haugan, the widow of former Broncos coach Darcy Haugan who was killed in the April crash, posted on Facebook on Monday. “He has done this without the support and endorsement of any family involved in this. In fact he was specifically asked not to do this at this time as none of us felt ready for something like that. “Would you please do me a favour and not purchase this book and support him and share this so others don’t as well? I would appreciate that!” WATCH: Humboldt Broncos player Layne Matechuk leaves hospital after 6 month stay According to Boulet, Heath first sent letters to family members four to five weeks after the crash to pitch the book. In a Facebook post that has since been deleted, Heath said he “followed the proper channels” by also contacting former Broncos president Kevin Garinger and sending him chapters of the book before publishing. He admitted that Garinger did not provide feedback. Barry Heath Facebook comment. Facebook Because the families did not agree to participate in the writing of the book, Heath relied on details and interviews already published in various media outlets. Before the post was deleted and his account made private, many commenters criticized him for trying to profit off the tragedy. Toby Boulet post on Facebook. Facebook “Some may think I wrote the book for profit,” Heath wrote. “All the proceeds of the book go to the Humboldt Broncos Alumni Association, which was accepted by the Broncos as an umbrella group under them. One of the activities of the HBAA is to support hockey players by using funds for bursaries for young players. This is what I have agreed to do. $10 of each $20 book is going to the HBAA.” Barry Heath comment on Facebook. Facebook “Ask yourselves – have the newspapers and TV and radio stations given support to the families from the profits of the additional papers or advertising they sold? Or did they just keep hounding them for more interviews?” Heath wrote. Barry Heath comment on Facebook. Facebook According to the author, the book also focuses on the early history of the team, but the table of contents shows at least 16 of the 28 chapters are dedicated to the bus crash and its aftermath. Heath said the book took approximately 500 hours to complete and is his tribute to the team – adding that he believes he has “done justice to the emergency responders and the memories [of] the families of those lost and injured.”

    Not my video. You didn't read that part. Cherry pick some more. Have fun doing whatever it is you like doing. PS - I could agree with you, but then we would both be wrong.
