    I think you've hit the nail on the head here. He's hard-pressed to carve out an offensive career here unless he takes the Burrows route. He'll likely fit best as an energy bottom six guy.
  2. Fortnite Squads

    Never played Fortnite, but I do play some other online games on which it'd be neat to hook up with CDC peeps.
  3. Probably an ECHL guy or potentially a kid that can surprise and usurp Bachman as the Utica backup.
  4. [Signing] Predators re-sign Juuse Saros

    A great back up who could become a starter replacement for Rinne some day.
  5. Eight years ago today, I joined CDC.

      "how old is stealth? if he is 20, then cdc is 20 years old." - I'm guessing Joe Smithers has underwear older than that (I know I do).:lol:

      I just realized this is year 10 for me o.o

  6. Now and then: CDC

    Content-wise, the CPA program pretty heavily emulates what I learned during my BBA; there have been very few new things to learn so far (I'm only in the second module so far). It essentially just asks for a higher level of mastery over the content and requires you to apply the knowledge in case-study scenarios. In terms of workload, I've found both of the first two modules to be very stressful, as I personally really value my free time and working full time while also doing the CPA program leaves very little free time. For me, I find that the program takes 15-20 hours a week of my time. I'm hoping that I'll enjoy the elective modules more, but we'll see how that goes. In the end, the CPA designation is a very powerful thing to have, so I'm going to keep chugging on.
  7. Ray Emery has passed away.

    Wow, that's terrible news. What a tragic loss at such a young age.
  8. [Proposal] Luongo

    As much as I love Lu, I'm pretty sure this is a bad idea. He's far better than our current netminders based on his recent performance, but he's oft-injured and if he's injured and we have to go with Nilsson, we're gonna be in rough for a bit. On top of that, he's over $2M more than Markstrom and for longer.
  9. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    Agreed. A few years down the road, consider giving him an alternate maybe, but for now, just let him get used to the NHL game and focus on that.
  10. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    At this point, I don't think he's quite there yet. As I mentioned I think he'll get a letter for sure at some point and if it weren't for Horvat, I think we'd all be pegging Boeser as the next captain of this team. In a few years, I think Boeser should definitely be an alternate, as he'd definitely be a better candidate than either Edler of Sutter once he has some experience under his belt. I honestly think the only thing keeping Boeser from becoming the captain of the Canucks is that Horvat is also on the team. We happen to have two of the best young leaders in the game on one team and unfortunately only one of them can be captain.
  11. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    I think Bo should get it next year because I think he's definitely ready for it. That said, if the team doesn't want to give it to Bo now, the next best option would be to have three "A"s throughout the year. As for the "A"s, my votes go to Edler and Sutter. In the long run, Boeser should get one as he's definitely a leader type, but for now, he's very young and should get some more experience under his belt. Edler is the most experienced defenseman on the team and Sutter is a veteran forward who works his tail off and is a very versatile guy. He's also a vocal guy. Tanev is a decent option, but he's a bit quiet. He'd be my third choice for the "A". If we go the three "A"s, I'd like Horvat, Edler, and Sutter to be our three guys.
  12. Game winning goals aren't always as clutch as they seem. For instance if Daniel scored the goal to make it a 4-2 lead and then the opposition scored a goal, he'd be awarded with a GWG, despite not being particularly clutch with his timing. The name kind of belies it's meaning and it's a fairly pointless stat IMO. Still, great research and digging. I found this interesting to read. It's a neat find!
  13. Looks like a solid deal. Not too long and he was lights out last year. If he can keep up last year's performance for the three years of the contract it'll actually be a steal.
  14. If Price plays poorly, the Canadiens will be near the bottom. If Ottawa loses Karlsson they too will be in the bottom three. Aside from that, I think the Canucks might be bottom three.
  15. Brendan Leipsic | #9 | LW/C

    Fair point. I guess the sample size has me concerned. Eriksson was nearly a point per game for a 10 game stint or so. I'm just curious to see if Leipsic can maintain a pace similar to that throughout the year or not.
