      Though I would honestly prefer wins.

  3. All ages rock shows??

    I sincerely miss the "rock scene" that existed over the past 10 to 20 years... unfortunately the environment and general perception have negatively impacted the "scene". I would be very interested in hearing your results. EDIT: I also think that a large percentage of adults want to "party" when going to such an event, and thus steer away from all ages shows.
  4. The Canucks really Dahlinated late in the 3rd tonight.

  5. Bulk Up After Season Ends

    This! ...everyone on the roster not named Markstrom or Nilsson could benefit, assuming they are healthy enough to do so.
  6. NHLPA Poll Results

    The players have spoken: Crosby, McDavid headline NHLPA Poll The players have spoken and Sidney Crosby stands above his peers as the most difficult NHLer to play against. The National Hockey League Players' Association revealed the results of its 2017-18 Player Poll on Wednesday and the three-time Stanley Cup Champion of the Pittsburgh Penguins received almost 30 per cent of the votes in the category. Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid was second at 23.7 per cent. More than 500 players were surveyed by the NHLPA on more than 20 hockey-related questions during their annual team meetings between the preseason and last month, covering topics regarding skills, coaches, officials, arenas, teams and on-ice matters. Other highlights include Washington Capitals centre Nicklas Backstrom voted as the league's Most Underrated Player and Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens voted as the goalie who is most difficult to score on. Crosby took the most categories in the poll, as he was also voted the best role model and the player who would be a great coach once he retires. McDavid led in two categories - for fastest skater and player you would select to start a franchise. The players were polled on several other questions, such as which player they would want on their team to win one game, which coach they would most like to play for, which team has the best fans and their opinions about some of the game's all-time greats. The full results of the Player Poll are as follows: Who is the league's fastest skater?

  7. Wow, I wonder how the ref's lawyer came up with the 10.2M valuation... even at 200k per year, that's 51 years (of course ignoring other reasons for monetary award which are, typically, relatively low in Canada).
  8. That was my first question too!!!
  9. NHL linesman's $10.2M lawsuit against Calgary Flames, Dennis Wideman sent to arbitration Queen's Bench justice stays lawsuit and rules it is an employment issue By Meghan Grant, CBC News Posted: Mar 02, 2018 3:23 PM MT Last Updated: Mar 02, 2018 8:52 PM MT NHL linesman Don Henderson was hit by Calgary Flame Dennis Wideman during the second period of a game in Calgary on Jan. 27, 2016. (Jeff McIntosh/Canadian Press) A $10.2-million lawsuit filed by an NHL linesman against the Calgary Flames and defenceman Dennis Wideman has been stayed by a judge and ordered to be heard by an NHL arbitrator. Alberta Court of Queen's Bench Justice Willie deWit made the ruling Friday afternoon after the defendants applied to stay the lawsuit earlier this year. $10.2M lawsuit filed against Flames, Wideman DeWit agreed with the defendants' position that NHL linesman Don Henderson must abide by the agreement between the NHL and its members — including officials — which says disputes like this one fall under the umbrella of employment issues and must be dealt with through league arbitration. Henderson had argued the matter should remain in court because, based on their prior involvement with Wideman's suspension, league commissioner Gary Bettman and the league showed bias. Henderson cross-checked Henderson was hit by Wideman during a game against the Nashville Predators on Jan. 27, 2016. In the second period, Wideman took a hit from Predators' Miikka Salomaki. Moments later, Wideman was skating toward the Flames' bench when he cross-checked Henderson, who had his back to the defenceman. Wideman was suspended for 10 games.

The lawsuit claimed Henderson suffered head and neck injuries and a concussion when he was "violently struck." The injuries cost Henderson $10 million in lost income and future earnings, according to the lawsuit, which also seeks $250,000 in general and special damages. Speaking with reporters in Calgary on Friday before deWit delivered his decision, Bettman refused to comment on the lawsuit because it was before the courts.
  10. Medical ei question

    I believe there is a way to even move to standard EI after medical EI payments are finished. Definitely phone the applicable Canada revenue office to see if your situation qualifies as such. My wife went through a similar situation a few years back, and that was the path she was able to take while also "quitting", or at least was decisively able to never return to the previous toxic workplace.
