  1. Did you mean FELINE Potvin or maybe its Nikolai TABBYbulin. Looks a bit like PURnie Parent. I'm not kitten around here!
  2. You what the best part of all this is? It is not a Canucks issue...he's long gone, will quickly be forgotten and we can focus on the quality individuals (men of character) that JB has assembled to wear the Blue and Green. It's fun to watch other teams problems. BTW just for clarity I do not support of condone the comments by this peabrain and his colleagues, this is completely neanderthal mentality at its finest.
  3. I said this last time... for me its all about entertainment and Gino is 100%pure entertainment. He was heart and soul for his team mates. Have a look at this video. Not just for the face punching damage but watch the pure joy he exudes every time he hits the back of the net. He is like a kid, just so stoked to be doing what he loves, with his mates and for the fans. No thats entertainment baby! Gino has to be next on the list.
  4. Okay friends I need to ask the question... Is hockey about entertainment? Well it is for me and therefore I am voting for the most entertaining Canuck left on the list Gino Odjick. Seriously every time he played you just didn't know what might happen. When something big did happen it was colossal. Like this!!!! Gino is a very special part of the Canucks story and its certainly time to add him to this list. I nominate Dan Hamhuis
  5. Yes #14 at 14 please Alex Burrows Nominating Gino. Maybe not as skilled as others but what a heart and so entertaining.
  6. I think it might be in the league and Bettmans best interest to allow the Penalty recapture for Luongo to be bought out. It gives them an option to back peddle with Webber. As it currently stands Nashville and Montreal to a lesser extent are in a whole world to SH!t if Webber retires. This would allow everyone to save face and not make a farce of this ridiculous situation. How on earth Nashville could possibly manage to find the money to pay $12M or $24 M for Webbers retirement without wiping out the team is anyones guess. Its a good opportunity to start with a clean slate and more level playing surface.
  7. I am just tired of seeing the Canucks goalies screened and the tips from in front are driving me nuts. I want to see someone clear the crease. Stetcher works hard but he cannot physically move those forwards from in front and if he takes up a position early he is more easily moved than someone like Myers. We need some more of our own immovable objects in front of the net. Some defenders with size and speed will really help the team. I just feel the team is too light at the moment with Stetcher and Hughes at one end of the size spectrum and Myers being the only one at the other end. The rest of the defence is not small but not monstrous either. Tryamkin just adds some serous height and weight which is exactly what this team needs.
  8. You need to be lightning quick to beat Vintage Congrats on 100k posts
  9. I know it doesnt really matter.... but who picked the 3 stars today? Do they watch hockey at all? Did they watch this game? Wow
  10. Quality response good sir...I tip my hat to you. Thanks for the good laugh
  11. If you look at Ottawa for next season they have 5 UFA forwards to sign or not sign, 5 RFA forwards to deal with, and im not sure if they get much of a pay increase. They have 2 UFA and 2 RFA defenders to sign (although Chabot gets a massive increase), unlikely to resign Anderson at $4.75M (he is 38 y/o). They lose Callahan, MacArthur and Hainsey off the IR and who knows what will happen with Bobby Ryan. They are going to need to spend some to get to the cap. I understand they may have a real go at building a team, they have lots of very good young players but are they quite ready? Heres my two cents... Eriksson after paying him a signing bonus next year of $3M, that leaves just $1M base salary for next year and $4M for year after ($5M wages with $12M cap hit.) surely thats got Eugene Melnyk salivating. You would think a deal could be brokered here??? Maybe they would actually be interested in Sutter as well as they need some "foundational players" to slot in with their young guys???
  12. Just some perspective here folks. I live in Sydney and we have not really been affected yet. Apart from some insane smoke that clouded the city for 60 odd days we really havent had it too bad. My suburb went up in flames on New Years Eve with an out of control bush fire. But the NSW fire service did an amazing job to keep the containment to bushland and no houses were threatened. But Sydney in general has been fire free. We are lucky and thats why we just get on with our daily routine and take time to enjoy what we can whilst we can. The people in the southern regions of NSW and Victoria have seen 60 odd days of terror. I cannot relate to that and my heart goes out to them and the courage they show on a daily basis to fight the fires and their emotions, their lives will be changed in so many ways, both good and bad. These tragedies have ways of bringing us Aussies together, this is the country where everything tries to kill you on a daily basis, and I think thats why we seem casual and relaxed or blasé. You just have to be like that or you would turn into a basket case. If you havent seen the images or videos it is mind blowing. It looks like an apocalypse. Its bloody Armageddon. Complete darkness in the middle of the day, with a red glow, very eire stuff. There were days when small coastal villages were cut off from the outside world and we had people sheltering on the beach ready to swim into the water for protection. We have had naval ships transport towns people by the 100's off the beaches as there is no road access. The scary part about this for the people in the fire zones is there is no relief in sight. The weather doesnt look like it will change and we are just at the beginning of the fire season. Thanks for the concern and appreciate people talking about whats going on down here.
