  1. What I've read about Patrick isn't particularly gleaming. My hope is we pick #2 and Hischier is still available
  2. What was with the story of Edler not passing to Boeser? Can someone elaborate? Too lazy to sift through the GDT pages
  3. I wish I cared less about her saying that while she holds the position she does.
  4. I was at the season finale a couple weeks ago between these two teams. Everett won that game too. Too bad Victoria couldn't come back but Hart is a pretty good goalie. Good luck to Everett
  5. I have nada good to say about Willie. I could see the writing on the wall a couple months ago and hoped they could just finish the season not on a high note but on the high road. He was the wrong guy for this job every single day since 3 years ago. Some people act like Bo would be in the ECHL if it weren't for Willie but I know better than that.
  6. I'm a hip-hop fan at heart but I like hearing heavy metal at a game. It makes sense. However, as they say, you can't please everybody, so some people are going to dislike whichever song they choose. As long as it's nothing too soft. That's the reason I hate the U2 intro. It has the feeling of a life insurance commercial or a movie montage... I'd rather plug in my earbuds and listen to literally anything else. It's not apt for a hockey game at all.
  7. Don't faint if I disagree with the majority in this thread, but... I once met Willie in his first year here. I cannot say he came across as a likeable or stand up guy, the exact opposite actually. Just vaguely sharing my personal experience with the man.
  8. I bet Lehner is still punching drywall somewhere in Buffalo
  9. Maybe it partially has to do with the franchise having so many different sweater variations over the years. Think about it, there's the current blue/green, 90's black/red/yellow, 80's yellow/red/black, Millionaires maroon/cream, 00's navy/burgundy, and then white if said attendee is wearing an away jersey. So from watching TV it can appear like a mishmash of jerseys (which it is, I guess) but they're all jerseys of the same team. Whereas if you're at a Flyers game you're only gonna see orange, Flames game you'll see red, Wild game you'll see green, and so on.
  10. Unfortunately the building isn't set up for hockey but it's still a nice arena and in, what I thought, was a good area. Sat next to a season-ticket holding Penguins fan from Long Island when I was there and he knew his stuff. The New York accents you hear yelling at the players is just awesome too. I loved it. Hopefully they stay in NYC. Their fanbase isn't gigantic, comparatively, but they're loyal.
  11. What do you call an elephant with a rhinoceros? - 'Elephino A man went to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor had bad news. "Sorry sir, but it looks like you have cancer and Alzheimer's" The man sighed and said "well, thank god I don't have cancer!"
  12. He has a good knowledge of random statistics. When I watch feeds from other cities, their announcers haven't got half the info Shorty provides.
  13. Hypothetically speaking, if we sign Miller to a 2-year contract, what do we do with Markstrom? I felt at the start of the season that could handle being the starter but this far into the season now I'm not too sure. Maybe he's best suited to a 1A/1B set up like St Louis had with Allen & Elliot.
  14. Good thread. I'm not in a band, however, I make rap music. I was fortunate enough to go to game 7 Canucks versus Flames in '94 and I made a song and video about it. ...I have no idea how to post the video in here, but here's the link if anyone wants to check it out. Cheers
  15. The atmosphere in the arena was amazing. That game was up near the top in terms of most epic Canuck moments I've been in the rink for. Sidenote, something else I really like is knowing that while all this adoration and cheering for Hank was going on Shawn Thornton had to sit there and just take it in. And then he watched his goalie congratulate our captain.
