  1. This seemed like a much sloppier performance than last game.
  2. Yeah. I like the way he has played with an edge. WD apparently does not. After all, the Nucks are nice guys and only teams like Calgary area allowed to have guys like Ferland in their line up. WE will let the refs protect our guys.
  3. I am trying really hard not to imagine that. It appears the press never tire of dry-humping these new "stars" who have yet to do anything in the NHL. Watching highlights of Mc Jesus after the last game with hardly a mention of Stecher who was far more impressive, is just the start of what will be a long season of such slights on the Nucks. After all, Vancouver has no stars worthy of discussion as far as the Canadian press is concerned.
  4. Only McDavid is worthy of press coverage. The sooner you accept that, the better your enjoyment of the sport will be.
  5. Good energy from the kids. You can see they are giving it everything they have to try and impress. Liked the physicality. Thought Gaunce was the best forward as he shone in all areas including the PK. Smart, faster than last year, big and physical...should be on the opening roster. Stecher (obviously with 3 points) and Hutton (with his Bobby Orr rushes) stood out for their offensive flair and smarts in moving the puck. Felt good to get a win after the Jays crapped the bed.
  6. In a #3 or #4 role he is still decent value. He is mis-cast in Vancouver and his contract with its No-trade clause increase the challenge of getting a bonafide #1.
  7. It would be a good deal if he was a #1 or #2. He is on the Canucks only because they don't have other options. He is declining and his contract term is an albatross.
  8. Which is why his contract was a huge mistake. His back problems were well known at that time. He has been in steady decline ever since.
  9. Negative - this team still lives and dies by the offensive production of the twins. They are long in the tooth and have shown a tendency to slow down late in seasons and with age comes the increased risk of injury. The twins don't need pre-season tournaments to get ready to play. They are in great shape, always, and chemistry is never an issue.
  10. Sad but true nux. Human/animal interaction and altercations are inevitable as our population increases and we expand our presence into more and more habitat. Shooting animals like this bear make the news and people get upset but in reality, this is just the tip of the ice berg. Our increased back-country activities with motorized vehicles and our destruction of prime habitat is the real threat to our wildlife. BC likes to pat itself on the back about its "green power" from hydro projects and its damnation of pipelines but the permanent damage done in wiping out hundreds of thousands of acres of prime valley bottom habitat, has (and will with site C) do more to destroy habitat than hundreds of oil spills ever could. To the poster suggesting to just capture and move the bears...bears that are habituated and have lost fear of humans, will return to the "easy food' of human areas. In addition, bears are territorial and if you move a bear to some wilderness area, that bear, or the one already there have to fight it out and one will end up moving on. The scenario then repeats itself until some bear is pushed back into an area inhabited by humans. Bears and other wildlife don't seek out human interaction, they are just running out of options.
  11. It will be more than "sorry". get ready for a multi-million law-suit/settlement. This is Canada where no one is responsible for their actions and someone else always pays.
  12. Simply ignoring major atrocities not related to religion in order to support your argument is the agenda I alluded to. rad more history and you will see there are more cases of violence against our fellow humans not related to religion than those that are. Your statement that the most egregious atrocities have been faith based is totally wrong and not backed up by history. Are you trying to say First Nations did not pray to the Great Spirit for victory over their enemies? If you have proof, please provide it. and who was talking about wealth and greed? You seem to be a major historical revisionist. I suppose First nations never invaded each others lands or committed violent acts either? You make First nations history sound like the Bambi story.
  13. You're using these incidents to further your own agenda. Humankind has never needed religion as an excuse for genocide. Politics, land, nationality, family pride etc. The list is endless. Religion is just a convenient tool to use to rile up a group who feel disadvantaged and are looking for something to follow. It could just as easily have been a Nazi uprising. BTW - do you include the Great Spirit in your trashing of all religious beliefs?
  14. From 30 goal scoring star to unwanted in the space of a year. Talk about a rapidly depreciating asset!! Perhaps a lesson on why the Canucks should be considering moving other non-star assets like Hansen and Edler for younger guys with potential so they will be ready when our kids take over?
