  1. Don't be an idiot. Drinking and driving isn't a mistake, it doesn't just happen, it's an extremely dangerous crime. Last I checked, ROR isn't struggling for money, dude can afford a taxi to come pick him up.
  2. I love Edler more than most, but in no way is he captain material. Watch one of his rare interviews, he's awkward with the media and extremely quiet in public. If the Sedins weren't around, the captain would be one of Hamhuis, Bieksa, or maybe Burrows. Like it or not, one of the captain's main jobs is to be a liaison between the team and the public, to stay late in interviews and be the team's voice. Edler can't be the voice of 23 men when he barely has one of his own.
  3. Because we care about the whole human population rather than just our own families? Because we don't like seeing people die from preventable diseases? It's not rocket science here.
  4. People care because: 1) Vaccines aren't 100% effective, and rely on herd immunity to protect everyone. 2) Not everyone can be vaccinated. Some people's bodies (they mention people with compromised immune systems in the article) can't handle fighting off a disease. These people also need to be protected with herd immunity. So what if companies are making billions? Just because someone makes a profit doesn't mean it's inherently bad. It can be, but that's not evidence one way or another. And that last sentence makes no sense, like at all. So what if they would die another way? At this point world hunger and common cold and flu cures aren't possible. So let's help people where we can. Edit: But you are right on one thing. Vaccines are a short term solution. If everyone had the Polio vaccine today, the disease would be 100% gone within 5 years.
  5. Anyone else loving Shulk? I think he's my new main. It's taking a while to get used to the Monado Art strategies, but his controls are so tight and he's just fun to use. I might buy Xenoblade X just because of Sm4sh
  6. @sportsnetirf: Bo learned he was staying when Willie made an announcement to the entire room. He's really liked in the room. #Canucks
  7. Don't look now, but Hansen's on pace for 20 goals (tied for 3rd on the team with Hank) despite being 10th in ES TOI per game. It's ridiculous what a whipping boy Jannik has become, he's contributing more than most yet people still want him out of the lineup.
  8. I do like the Virtanen pick more now than at the draft, but to pick based on your division is just as crazy as to pick because of team needs. Who knows what the Pacific will look like when JV is in his prime, it probably won't be the same death-triangle it is today.
  9. Or maybe (just maybe) he's out of game shape after not being able to train properly all summer. He's off to a slow start, just as expected. I'm positive he'll pick it up at some point, but there's nothing to be worried about right now.
  10. How is it a slap in the face? Horvat was on a conditioning stint, not demoted to the AHL for a week. There may be players who are playing better, but it wasn't Horvat vs Shink/Grenier/Gaunce/Jensen. It was Horvat that had to be called up.
  11. Might want to add a Horvat line to Utica, considering that's where he'll be playing for the next week or so. Thanks for doing this! Keep up the good work!
  12. Mods feel free to lock this but I'm 12 years old and I'm scared of what has been happening in Ottawa. Please can you guys post why this wont happen in BC? Thanks
  13. This thread is hilarious. Thinking a guy won't be up to speed right away after having shoulder surgery and not being able to train properly is horribly negative. Thinking a guy will score 40+ goals in about 50 games after having shoulder surgery? Yeah sounds about right Nobody is saying JV sucks. Judy temper your expectations, he'll need some time to get back into playing form.
  14. If Demko went out and bought a Canucks hat, he can wear it all be wants. If Vancouver gave Demko a Canucks hat, he can't accept it.
  15. Hasn't moved management? GMJB came out a few days ago saying that Horvat had done everything possible to force them into a hard decision.
