  1. Romantic Love - fate or choice?

    I believe that love is a choice and one you have to make everyday. I think some people spend too much time looking for "the one" like there is that perfect person just for them but there's no such thing as perfection. We all have flaws, quirks, bad habits and idiosyncrasies that separate us and I believe we have to choose to accept those in the person we love. Me and my girlfriend are almost totally opposites about everything and our differences cause us to clash now and then but we choose to see the good in each other even though sometimes its hard.

    I think the difference between the AHL and NHL is the expectations. In the NHL you have to produce and making mistakes can cost you ice time while playing in the AHL is mostly about development so mistakes are forgivable.
  3. You are probably right but I don't think they will get what they want for him in the end. I'm assuming he has a NTC and a NMC so he dictates where he goes which drives his price down plus he's disgruntled in Ottawa and he's on his last year of his contract. We all know other Gms will use whatever means and excuse to get the player they want cheaper. The next contract he gets will be likely rivaling what Taveras got so whoever gets him has to have the cap as well. In my opinion if you add it all up I just don't see as many trading partners as it appears but who knows.
  4. Karlsson is Ottawa's last big trading chip so you just know they will not settle for anything less than an enormous offer. However, they don't want exactly have the luxury of time so I'm thinking they are in danger of holding out too long and are forced to accept way less than they expected. Regardless of who gets him I know it won't be the Canucks, he just doesn't make sense given where the team is at right now.
  5. Taveras definitely makes them better now but the precident they just set with that contact could potentially gut them down the road. Imagine how much marner and Mathews will want if they put the same numbers as Taveras. They better go all out for the cup now because they are going to become like Tampa Bay back when they won their last cup.

    The one question I have is have the Canucks reached out to him to see if he even has any desire to play in the NHL? I know typically there is dialogue but in this case it seems like they are hoping he's willing to come over.

    He fits the bill for what they are looking for being highly skilled and fast and he's such a long shot just based on his draft position alone so what the hell. It's more interesting than drafting a bunch of hopeful plugs.
  8. When Benning acquired Baertschi and Grandlind they didn't really have anyone from the farm challenging for a spot so all Benning could do is be patient and hope they turned out but now theres a surplus and neither of them have really solidified their spot as key players in that time. Injuries or not they have both been average and with there being so much hungry talent coming they have to start proving they can elevate their games or be replaced by someone who can. Needless to say, it's going to be a very interesting camp.
  9. I'm in the dry goods side and I typically do 100% or slightly better like 102% but that's because I don't typically go to fast right off the bat. Some people can do 120% daily but they are in the minority. I personally focus on making a good story pallet rather than throwing it together but that's just me.
  10. I currently work at ev logistics and I don't think it's too bad. When I read 120 cases an hour being a hardship I have to assume their system is much different because we get on average an hour and a half to do 260+ cases and it's not that hard. But then again if they are on foot I can see it being difficult since I use a machine to get around.
  11. Hollywood sucks these days

    There was a time when I hated old movies, and when I say old movies I mean movies from the 40s, 50s and 60s but I now appreciate them for their story's and characters even if the special effects can be terrible. You can guarantee each year that 99% of the movies released are either garbage or at least watchable with the 1% being actual quality. Mind you, I still love watching movies. Even with the same story being reused over and over again I find them to be a nice distraction from the world.
  12. The fact that we got anything of value is a plus in my opinion. Both players are still young and have yet to be be given a real opportunity to show what they can do. Holm was just a depth defenseman with no nhl experience and Vanek was just an old rental from the beginning so the fact that we got two players with potential should be considered a win
  13. I break down teams into 3 categories going into the deadline: contenders, pretenders and the dwellers. The contenders are the teams that feel they have a legit chance at the cup and are willing to go all out to give themselves the advantage heading into the playoffs. They do not want to subtract from their lineup so picks and prospects are their preferred currency. Regardless if they are deep they know they are sacrificing their future so they are going to make sure they are getting the right players for the high price they will pay. The pretenders are the teams that will likely make the playoffs but know they cant compete with the contenders so they would prefer to deal in roster players that they don't see as apart of their core moving forward. They will only deal picks or prospects if they are getting an immediate upgrade and someone who fits long term. The dwellers are the rebuilding or downright terrible teams thats only focus is on the draft and foreseeable future. Picks and prospects are like gold to these teams and roster players are available at a surplus which makes every other selling teams assets worth less. Now obviously we all know which category the Canucks fall under and given the number of teams deciding to tank, the market was saturated with better players than what the Canucks had to offer. The only teams willing to overpay are the contenders but in order to get those overpayments you need to have the most sought after assets which the canucks didn't have.
  14. Rate The Last Movie You Saw - 2

    Just saw it yesterday and I'll give it a solid 7 out of 10. Visually it's very impressive and even though im not African or black I can appreciate the culture they incorporated into the universe. The few negatives I have revolves around the story being somewhat simplistic and not a whole lot of characterization. The action is good but fairly standard for a marvel movie and of course theres enough comedy to keep the mood light. Overall I'd say it's one of the better marvel movies that been made.
  15. Is Global War Fast Approaching?

    I don't fear what I cannot control. If the powers that be want to start a nuclear war then what can a single insignificant person such as myself do to stop them? Nothing. I hope to go out in the first blast in that case because the idea of living in an apocalyptic world is more scarier than the war itself.
