  1. I wish our most likely position was 3rd but these are the widely distributed odds for the different possibilities going into the lottery. Thing is, the odds that another team (whether ahead or behind in seeding) wins the lottery greatly outweighs the Canucks' odds for each pick. One would think that the odds for the second pick would be higher than the first pick since there is one less team in the lottery but because there is a possibility that the Canucks will win the first overall pick, the odds are adjusted to account for this scenario.
  2. The Canucks are more likely to drop to 4/5/6 than win a top 3 pick with the new lottery odds. Agreed that the Canucks should draft Matthews/Puljujarvi/Laine if they do win top 3. Need successors for the Sedins.
  3. The more compelling reason to draft a forward instead of a defenceman is that top 10 ranked dmen bust way more often than forwards. Also, a lot of great defencemen come out of the 2nd round or later due to a less predictable trajectory in terms of development.
  4. 1) Montreal 2) Calgary 3) Edmonton 4) Winnipeg 5) Ottawa 6) Vancouver 7) Toronto
  5. Virtanen Baertschi McCann Boeser Cassels Demko Corrado Gaunce Shinkaruk Brisebois Clendening Grenier Hutton Subban Pedan Tryamkin Jensen
  6. Draft Kylington/Chabot/Merkley/Boeser at 23, acquire two additional 2nd rounders and draft Dunn and Andersson/Pilon.
  7. JB needs to hire someone to do the contract negotiations for him. It's clear he gives in easily to agents' demands and made a mistake in not waiting until after the playoffs to negotiate contracts with free agents (except Tanev, who was important to lock up).
  8. I hope you get fired the next time you make a mistake on the job.
  9. Anyone have any insight to offer to explain Jensen's team worst +/- of -15 (and by a wide margin too)? Having tough competition is one viewpoint, but there are four other guys out there against the opposing team's top lines yet Jensen is not making a case for himself when there are guys like Sanguinetti with a +21.
  10. Didn't like the trade at first glance but really warming up to it and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited to see Baertschi suit up for the Canucks. Hopefully Baertschi can keep up the torrid pace ( 5 pts in 4 games) he is going at and prove naysayers wrong, Burke inclusive. Hey Jeff you listening? Baertschi might have gotten complacent after Treliving handed him a roster spot, but this time around, he realizes he needs to battle night in, night out to stay in the NHL. Major props to GMJB for a calculated risk.
  11. The best time to buy a laptop is during boxing week. However, there may be limited choice and you'd have to act fast in order to get one of the best deals. For the price you are paying, this laptop is definitely solid. The only thing that would be nice if it had SDD or SSHD memory instead of the 500GB of HDD, which would make the boot-up and read/write speed slightly faster. Nonetheless, with an i7 intel processor and more than enough ram, this laptop should be fast enough to do all your listed tasks efficiently.
  12. Pacific Rim: 9/10 This Is The End: 7/10 PR: great graphics, thought the shifting scenes didn't kill any of the captivating elements of the movie, asian star actress is the icing on the cake TITE: had some really hilarious moments, some boring parts that weren't so enjoyable
  13. Congratulations! And I might be wrong, but I think you need a level 2 to teach at big mountain resorts like Whistler. And I recently discovered that for every CSIA card (renewable after every year), you get a 40% discount off tickets for one time you visit Whistler. Hope that comes in handy.
