  1. Yes indeedy. Even more exciting is when they begin trickling into the lineup. We almost enjoyed Rodin's (rookie) season last year, we should be enjoying Boeser's rookie season this year, and maybe Juolevi and one other next year. Good stuff. I don't really care where we finish as long as we play hoxkey that's a bit more entertaining, and we keep drafting, and hopefully developing, well.
  2. My point wasn't that we can't find scouts who ranked Pettersson lower, it was that there are also scouts that ranked him right where we took him. It was all over the map, and regardless of how Elias develops, this pick was not very off the board until scouting reports are filtered to demonstrate that bias. The reality is that this draft was a BPA blender. edited for C- English
  3. Cool find. Thanks for posting. I'm optimistic about our picks this draft, but we'll see what we're all saying about 2017 3-4 years from now.
  4. What consensus? The consensus where between the 3rd and 10th-ish pick few professional scouts could actually agree on BPA? Or the CDC consensus where since his frame is less NHL ready than some prospects selected after him then he must have been genetically pre-selected for failure with the Canucks? What makes you think Petersson, the highest ranked European skater according to NHL.com, would still have been there at 10-15? Continue with the witch hunt though.
  5. Funny, you just explained the reasons why I love it.
  6. They'll be back. They always come back. I'd wager the Stanley Cup itself wouldn't be enough for some people here.
  7. There's a playoff face.
  8. Yeah, but I'd rather have 15 centers than 15 wingers.
  9. Yeah, that's a valid point. His performance was fine in There Will Be Blood, but I still found what he was performing to be entirely uncaptivating, if you catch my drift. The movie was too long, there was too much "I'm an oil man", and I just failed to buy in. Since he was in quite a bit of the movie I feel I can hold him accountable for my boredom. But hey, the enjoyment of movies is subjective, and I happen to fall on the other side of the DDL Oscar winning fence. I'd have to watch Gangs of New York again to comment (watched it twice many years ago) but it wasn't that great of a movie so I'll just go ahead and give you the win on that argument. The Last of the Mohicans was the last movie I liked of his, but that was so long ago I wonder if I'd feel the same way today. Some people simply aren't entertained by other actors, kind of like how people roast me for not liking The Wire. I don't care, sometimes that's just the way it is.
  10. Honest question: Am I the only one that doesn't care and believes he's as over-rated as humanly possible? There Will Be Blood was as bland a movie as he is an actor. Best of luck in his future endeavors though, maybe he'll be a better director if he swings that way.
  11. Welcome to the internet. Just out of curiosity, who are teams 1 and 2? You can PM me if you don't want it public. The way people act here sometimes is childish and silly, but them's the breaks of a west coast team with a poor history at the draft and no championships thus far. Of course the goofs will stand out if you are looking for them, or are hyper-aware of them, but there are also a lot of knowledgeable posters here. I've seen your name around here more and more of late, and if you can ignore, or just accept, the drivel (which you must be doing otherwise you would not be here) then this board can continue being your place of hockey talk refuge. I'll take CDC over Hot Fart Boards anyday of the week.
  12. I hope you are having a good day today.
  13. You mean his right hand?
  14. That was obviously a complete, against the grain of a finfoil hat, fluke. Plain and simple, Pittsburgh trounced the Pred's hard early in the series, and they couldn't recover for more than 1 game.
  15. Eh? Looks like he's tucked a couple of baby squid tubes under that rug.
