  1. Small Markets: Why the NHL needs them

    that doesn't really make any sense. as you said the NHL deals in US currency - regardless of how much the Canadian dollar fluctuates they still pay out the same amount in USD. actually if anything it would make more sense to have more canadian teams while our dollar is strong in relation to the US - every Canadian dollar made from ticket sales etc is actually worth more American dollars, bringing in more of the currency that they use. lets assume ticket prices remain relatively stagnant between seasons, throw out a # of $50 CDN for a ticket - at parity that translates to $50 USD, as opposed to what we used to be at around 70 cents which translates to $35 USD. They avoided Jim Balsillie because they hate him from previous ownership attempts and they think he's a flake. It's actually more likely that they don't want another Ontario team because the market is very Leafs focussed (the Leafs are the richest team in the organization despite having their poor record). Your point about the salary costs makes a little sense to my line of reasoning though. They get a greater profit margin from the area having just the Leafs and Senators in Ontario - more along the lines of why they don't have another team in Ontario per se though, not why they supposedly intentionally have small market teams.
  2. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    Unpinned because this thread doesn't need it to make it to the front page. Plus the original topic is quite clearly defunct, despite being tons of fun!
  3. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    Hahaha good to see it's still going! Last time I'd looked it was around 102 pages. Wonder how long it'll go on for? Probably until a while after he's no longer a Canuck, cuz you know if he changes teams or somehow retires here people will no doubt lament the loss.
  4. you have to remember that there are a lot of immature people on these boards. once you can learn who's who, you can filter out, those who disturb you and enjoy reading and conversing with those you find some common ground with. good luck.

  5. Thanks for the welcome! I have generally found it to be a good experience toward me, but I've also tried not to flame and name-call, unfortunately both a bit too rampant for my liking.

  6. c.c. that's a great story about your dad may he r.i.p...welcome to the boards....the people on here are basically decent folk....merry xmas.

  7. kudos on being able to respond to CANUCKLELION with evidence and without resorting to namecalling, that guy's infuriating sometimes!

  8. Hey

    Thanks and welcome to CDC! Nice to have another female on here!

    Love your pet peeves section btw. I hate the pink jerseys too. And sorry about your dad. But it's amazing that he was buried with a Naslund shirt! Now that's a fan :)

  9. Just wanted to say I enjoy your perspective on the boards, it's nice to see a female posting that shows a lot of knowledge and tact/respect. Way to represent!

  10. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    I'd be willing to bet he actually isn't pinhead because pinhead posted positive comments in this board about Burrows. OP was so stubborn in his hatred for Burrows I'm pretty sure his pride couldn't let him do such a thing, even under a different name haha
