  1. Gotta wonder ... Sedins' future?

    Likely scenario is they get traded as rental players to a team who feels they can win the cup that year. Then they can re-sign with Vancouver before retiring.
  2. Taking an Indepth look at Our Farm System

    I don't disagree with OP's rankings, but they may hold true only within the Canucks roster. How does this compare with the rest of the Pacific, or the rest of the league. What freaks me out is how do we replace Sedin scoring (previously point-per-game guys)? They may contribute 60 to 70pts this upcoming season and then who knows after that. I don't see anything in the roster that is capable of competing with the top lines of many teams.
  3. Screw history. Tonight is about tonight!
  4. Buying Canucks tickets at the game

    Just carry him. They will let you in, but he needs to sit on your lap. That's what I did with my 3yr old.
  5. Watching abroad

    Do you know anyone in North America with a live feed? My friend lives in Hong Kong. He basically streams off a SlingTV device which is hooked up at his sister's condo in Vancouver. Haha.
  6. Steve Moore/Todd Bertuzzi Lawsuit Settled

    To be accurate, I believe multiple involved parties bear some level of responsibility in the events leading up to the "incident". Both organizations should and could have diffused the situation (not running up the score, not putting certain players on the ice). To put the blame squarely on Bertuzzi and the Canucks lets many other parties off the hook.
  7. Canucks Summer Summit 7/8/2014

    These "fans" think it's their opportunity to say something witty or funny. I'm sorry, none of you guys are comedians -- it's disappointing the opportunity was lost to ask real hockey-related questions. Asking Dejardins what kind of style his team is going to play... WTH *shaking my head*. Didn't he already say when he was hired and also 10 minutes before that he wants up-tempo, roll all 4 lines, puck retrieval, team defense. *sigh*
  8. Canucks Summer Summit 7/8/2014

    Have to agree with the rest of you -- the questions were weak. I didn't get to speak but my question would have been what is the overall strategy of the franchise to get a cup. Seems like teams tend to copy Stanley Cup winning teams. When NJ won with a shut down defence all of a sudden everyone wanted to play that style. Then when Boston won everyone wanted to get bigger and meaner. Are the Canucks still trying to do the Detroit style (develop prospects and hope for the best)?
  9. Philadelphia Flyers star Claude Giroux arrested in Ottawa

    He forgot he was no longer in the city of "brotherly love"
  10. Which brings us to teams like Edmonton. They've had so many high picks, why aren't they competitive yet. PS: did you guys watch the TSN Original: Playing to Lose (how Pens tanked it to get Lemieux in 84). http://www.tsn.ca/bardown/Story.aspx?TSN+Original%3A+Playing+To+Lose&id=455356
  11. Gino Fighting His Toughest Battle

    When you come from a reservation, you're already behind the 8-ball from day one. Though Gino was playing mainly a goon role back in the day, good on him for making the NHL and having a memorable career. I'll forever remember his goal celebrations. Anyway, to all the thousands of CDC members, let's give this man and his family a financial boost. I'll gladly give up a few lattes and donate to GinoStrong.
  12. Welcome to CDC! =]
