  1. im completely calm and relaxed. I passed the stage of getting really infuriated by this franchises incompetence after my teens/early 20s. ive actually become completely cynical and apathetic to this teams tail chasing at this point. I no longer get mad about anything, but literally smile and laugh about it and move on. if this franchise made it a team policy to include clown noses as a standard part of the team jersey next year. it wouldn't even surprise/affect me anymore. the canucks are a trainwreck/comedy show. enjoy the ride
  2. in terms of vision. this management team is about 3 years behind the entire UNIVERSE (minus a handful of younger EVERYTHING POSITIVE fangirls) linden used to be one my heros in life. Its not so much his bad performance that made me lose respect for him, but his cowardice and confronting the owner. he willingly took a job to become the aquamans yes-man. at the expense of the genuine long term interests of this team. (and im giving him enormous credit here, as the other option would be to say it was all him, and he's simply incompetent ) linden is either a coward yes man or an incompetent president. He really should re-sign if he cares about his plummeting reputation.
  3. this franchise in inept, incompetent and deserves every bit of bad karma and misery it brings onto itself. getting close to 50 years of cup-less tail chasing. cant see them winning one in another 50 if they keep this up. the most pathetic, useless franchise in hockey. period.
  4. "connections" LOL if that makes you feel better about another head scratching move from this incompetent " management". knock yourself out. . lets go around and pick some random player/coach. and find a list of every current NHLer he was teammates with at some point. and automatically conclude they are all his "connections" and will be perfoming favors for or coming to the canucks? using that logic, The phoenix coyotes coached by gretzky should have won at least 5 Stanley cups. given gretzky's unholy resume/connections. this might just be the single most pointless thread in CDC. and that's saying a lot
  5. its sad to see some canuck fans being in such a state of denial. to feel the need to bend reality to make themselves feel better. the canucks are the most incompetently managed Team in the history of the NHL. Only perhaps buffalo can give them a good run for their money. But as crappy a town as buffalo is. they have other major sports options (unlike the canucks, and no CFL is not a major sports league )
  6. poor benning. goes thru hell, to bring a such a player to Vancouver (he even called him his bear when he hadn't played 1 minute yet) only to have linden's coach of the year chase him away with his insanity. trevor linden should go back to selling treadmills, before he becomes another kevin lowe type joke. His positive talking points/ (team propaganda) at this stage is becoming a little irritating. who's wanted willie? who's decision was it to keep willie around for another productive year? good thing linden's surrounded by scapegoats, and fanboys to whitewash his mistakes. (unlike others)
  7. tkachuk's rookie season rivaling that of his fathers good thing we have the grand scout master benning picking our top picks now... first with bieber, now with this. who the hell needs the next keith tkachuk anyway? when you can draft a project from a country like finland... who are just known for sh***ing out high quality NHL defensemen on a regular basis.... id take keith tkachuk over the greatest 2 finnish defenceman in history put together. Juolevi better be really really REALLY special, cause this is definitely looking like another big time miss for benning.. and I have to repeat what burke said, and is proving on the ice. You ABSOLUTELY have to get those top picks right if you want to get anywhere in the NHL.
  8. if your a true fan of the Vancouver canucks.... and I repeat, the Vancouver Canucks. (not fans of individual players) you will be realisticly hoping for this team to lose... not only for the higher draft picks.. but to snap the ownership/management out of their playoff delusions that's doing nothing but holding this franchise back.. it would be a travesty for this team to go any sort of run before the trade deadline, just to give management an excuse not to sell, and continue chasing their tails.. the canucks are the most boring, hopeless team in the NHL.. please tear this carcass down already... go Columbus.
  9. 94 and 2011 heartbreaks.... and Bertuzzi / steve moore incident... it really sucks being a canuck fan... I genuinely think that's one of the reasons people are fed up with this team... They desperately want a cup, and the teams realistic goals are a barely playoff bubble team.... people have had enough of that... give us at least some hope of a cup.. rebuild.
  10. I used to be 50/50 on the issue of euthanasia.. untill i heard about dutch laws and in particular this disturbing case... a dementia patient that had become too inconvinient to care for is drugged, forcefully held down, and "euthanised" (murdered)... this is outright murder plain and simple.. and a look at what a dangerous slippery slope this path can go.. whereby a "doctor" with family consent can end the life of mentality incapacitated people that are too hard/expensive to care for.
  11. travis green is desperate to get his shot as an NHL coach. He's actually very close to landing one if media reports are to be believed. and him turning around the career of a failing top 6 pick would be a great accomplishment to put on the resume. guaranteed to land him the canuck job (in case willy is freed), or a job elsewhere. so green is going to go around all year saying how amazing jake virtanen is coming along, the next bertuzzi (with a sprinkle of gretzky) in the making!!!111! but the numbers dont lie. Period. the guy is supposed to be a scoring power forward, and hes simply not scoring. not in the not in the NHL, and disturbingly not even in the AHL. if that doesnt raise serious alarm bells for anyone about this prospect (in addition to his character issues, low hockey IQ, and lack of heart) then you are beyond being in denial. Reminds me of the "this is fine" meme.... a busted pick. Made even more painful when one considers who went after him. As Burke said, You HAVE to get those top picks right if you want to get anywhere in this league. it is just simply a monumental failure on Bennings/Lindens part.
  12. This franchise is a joke..... I found willie D's explanation about Virtanen needing his "stuff" to be insulting. . he actually thinks canuck fans are that dumb...
  13. Thanks. that's actually an excellent idea I had not thought of in my exasperated state of mind.
  14. desi~ a small claims court case will cost me 30-40$ to file.... how much is it going to cost bell to send a lawyer to defend it? I actually like my chances, people have to know that they have rights, and cant get trampled on just because a company is big
  15. Hello CDC Lawyers... I have recently gotten into a massive dispute with bell regarding a cellphone I unfortunately purchased... IT was nothing but problems and a nightmare since day one. all my contacts, voicemails and most of my texts were permanently deleted (Even though the bell retailer assured me 150X times this would not happen) A combination of this, and absolutely grotesque levels of service had me wanting to cancel my bell contract. (I even overheard a bell agent snickering and laughing at me over the line after I had called for a 3rd time requesting to speak to a manager) in all my years of owning a cellphone, I have never talked to so many agents then I did in a couple of days with bell.. it has been a nightmare. in my contract there is a buyers remorse clause. That's in effect for something like 100 minutes~ 100 mgs I spoke to 2 bell agents about it and they told me I was under the limit but nearing it and I could cancel now if I want (even though most of the minutes I used were trying to get bell agents to fix my phone) even going out of my way and using someone elses phone to call bell to save my minutes in this time frame... After getting the assurance that this was possible, I decided to call bell one last time for my peace of mind, and have their agent put in writing on my file that this is going to happen. That agent did exactly that and told me that it is absolutely confirmed and on my file in writing.. So I went crawling back to my old company, they even offered to beat the deal bell gave me when I told them of my nightmare. upon going to the store to return the phone (which is what the bell agent told me to do) The clerk called "bell corporate" and then informed me that I have gone over the 100 minute allowance and I can no longer return the phone. I can only assume that last phone call to get the cancellation in writing might pushed it a couple minutes over 100 before I shut that phone off immediately for the last time... Upon talking to 2 different bell "supervisors" who had terrible attiudes. I was repeatedly told by them that this decision is final and there is no one higher up to speak to. I told the supervisor "so you must be bells CEO" and he said no im not but bells CEO doesn't take customer calls. I told absolutely not, But there are thousands of managers below him who can and will help me. after enormous effort, he finally agreed to forward me to a regional manager on Tuesday (after the long weekend) I will be speaking with the bell regional manager, and if he doesn't resolve this, I will be filing a small claims court case against bell, and have a judge decide on it.. im just wondering if there is anybody who has had any similar experiences, or been thru something similar, or sued a major company before... im not the type of person to go to court, or even return anything. but bells level of service was so grotesque, and they personally insulted me to such a degree, that I feel I don't have any other choice.... im open to any tips or advice anyone has for me, and if this is in the wrong section and belongs in white noise, I apologize and kindly ask a mod to move it over. thanks.
