  1. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Thanks for all of the memories, Daniel and Henrik. Canuck legends of the highest degree. What an awesome game played by everyone. It was something special. You can't write a better script to end the game. It has been a long time since the arena was rocking like this. I haven't heard it this loud in years. Hopefully again soon enough.
  2. Markstrom Moving Forward: A Big Head's Take

    Goaltending has been nowhere near good enough. The Canucks must seriously improve in this area. I would either waive Markstrom or trade him for anything, he has played poorly in a lot of games. I do hope they get rid of Cloutier and hire a competent goalie coach. The results have been atrocious. The Canucks should try to pick up a decent veteran goalie to mentor Demko.
  3. Going to be critical here with Benning but this is another fail of a trade deadline. How you do not get any draft picks by moving a valuable asset like Vanek is beyond me. He has had a few chances to obtain draft picks for several other players with nothing to show for. It is disappointing that we have so few draft picks. The Canucks need to build the prospect cupboards and get younger, not take on crap such as Jussi Jokinen.
  4. 2018 Winter Olympic Games Thread

    Willie Desjardins... awful coaching job for this game. The team looked uninspired, unprepared and played a sloppy game. It looked very familiar to the pathetic efforts from past Canucks teams when he was coach. I hope he never gets anothet gig after this. This has got to be a national embarrassment. I cannot believe it. Canada should be at 30 medals by now but I have to say that curling and mens hockey are massive disappointments results wise.
  5. NFL thread

    Thank god the Seahawks season is over, what a damn nightmare. Any idiot can see the team desperately needs to improve the o line and running game. A huge offseason awaits. Hope significant changes are coming. Get rid of that &^@#ing scrub Walsh. He alone cost the team the playoffs. I can count of at least 2 or 3 wins he cost the team. Hopefully Bevell and Cable are gone too plus a few others. A nice run with one Superbowl title but it is time to turn the page with a new core group of guys.
  6. This just makes me want to break some &^@#ing legs. So pissed off right now. Hope someone steps up.
  7. [PGT] Calgary Flames vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Very disheartening loss. It felt like a season ender. Horrible to see Brock hurt like this, especially as he seemed poised to be in the calder mix. Brutal game. I thought the Canucks showed almost nothing today, lousy effort with no pushback. The only happy fans were Flames fans who rubbed it in all night. With this and the way the Seahawks were completely demolished by the Rams, it was a $&!# day for sports.
  8. NFL thread

    This game makes it very clear that the Seahawks time has passed. Too many issues with the team, aging roster, crappy offensive line, below average running game, lack of depth in general. Hope this is a wakeup call to make some major changes in the offseason, maybe even a rebuild. Season is done, no playoffs. If not for Russ, this team is a bottom feeder.
  9. How we did on the Drafts

    It is going to take time to truly evaluate the picks that JB has made in the past few drafts. Even still, I thought he could have done better in this draft, Pettersson looks to be a big gamble, it may pay off and it may not but I was hoping for the safer choice in Glass. Hopefully it all works out. The Canucks missed out on some great players in recent drafts that could have make an impact.
  10. Not my choice for the leadership of the Conservative Party, however would be willing to give him a chance to see what kind of policies and ideas he will bring. It would certainly be better than the garbage that the Trudeau government is doing, creating a massive fiscal mess with increasing debt and spending money like moronic drunken sailors. Will not be voting Liberal in the next election. I cannot stand Trudeau. Hope the Conservatives can beat the crap out of him.
  11. NBA Discussion

    Wow, these playoffs suck hard. It was so easy to predict another GSW/Cavs final. There is no point watching these games, just wait until the finals begin. These games aren't even remotely close or competitive.
  12. Lots of baseball left, but this looks like the kind of year where nothing will be going right. Better luck next season.
  13. Epic choke right there. Series over, Flames are done.
  14. What a catastrophic start to the season.. just awful. Need to get the bats going. It is so annoying watching this team right now, something is very wrong.
  15. I am expecting this to be a close series, Habs in 7.
