  1. He is after a one way deal. Leafs put him on Waivers to justify a two way. Lots of leaf fans chatting that they liked him but he started to disappear for lengths last season. Some want to keep him.
  2. https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/maple-leafs-place-holland-waivers-prior-arbitration/&ved=0ahUKEwj7ioye3IfOAhUU32MKHRN4BwcQqG8IGzAA&usg=AFQjCNHlDaL5SJtUcwao_TY2QJs5aeU5pQ&sig2=GOKHCCeTqt-ApsiOkqgrqw 9 goals, 27 points in 65 games. Similar to the Schroeder situation.
  3. Yeah we need a band aid 2nd line winger for a season. Im sure other players have figured out that if they sign via free agency they will be exposed or traded by next year. They won't want to sign here. I also think Benning won't trade important assets for a 1 year player. Im not counting on a blockbuster trade this year. More likely a minor hockey trade. Now don't tell anyone, but I have been wrong before.
  4. Darn straight. I think we have better odds of winning the Stanley cup than the draft lottery.
  5. Well I finally feel like the Canucks are getting some wins. It's going to be an exciting season for sure.
  6. I'm getting excited. This is going to be a great year to watch. It's pretty freaking cool that Eriksson is a Canuck
  7. lol I don't need to threaten. If there's nowhere for me to smoke and no one can give me a long term solution, aside from quitting, I just wont buy them.
  8. Im glad you quit bro! I have tried many times and I always fail. I will try many more. I mostly though wanted advice not on quitting smoking but in how to deal with being a smoker if you want to buy season tickets. Looks like I am SOL though and maybe season tickets isnt for me. Yet.
  9. The laser thing worked? I thought it was a scam. Thanks for the info I am going to look into that tomorrow. Man it would be really awesome if I could quit!
  10. I think I could do that temporarily for a game or two. There is just no way I can buy season tickets and do this all season long. I would rather go to a pub and be able to smoke then suffer. It seems silly that I cant leave and come back. When I lived on the coast before, they had a smoking patio for us at rogers. But alas no more. I was pretty stoked when the rep told me about all the available seating. I know its because we arent doing well, but in the back of mind I cant help think that when you alienate 30% of the adult population, that might also contribute to trouble selling tickets.
  11. Nope, I really wish it worked like that. I hate being a smoker, its the biggest regret I have in my entire life. Cigarette companies put chemicals in their smokes that cause one to be extremely addicted. To the point that after 20 minutes you start to feel crappy if you dont get more of those chemicals in you. After an hour or two you can start to feel sick. Mix in alcohol and excitement and you start to feel physical pain. I wish I never had one but now I need to deal with the consequences.
  12. lol If I was just there for a game sure, I could pull being a giant d - bag. But if I am buying season tickets I dont think thats how I should behave.
  13. Hey guys and gals. I know most of you don't smoke and good for you, carry on if you don't smoke, this aint your thread. After many years in the okanagan I just moved to the coast and decided to spoil myself by buying a pair of season tickets. When talking about availability to the service rep, I asked about distance to the smoking patio. He informed that there is no smoking patio at rogers and that I can not go out the main entrance and come back. I know I shouldn't smoke but its its been 25 years and I am not about to quit now. I also can not go 3 hours without having a smoke while drinking and cheering for my Canucks. I could maybe buy an inhaler or something for 1 or 2 games but not for 22-45. I am certainly not spending $16k on a pair of tickets where I am going to sit through half the game then leave and not be allowed back in. How do you smokers get through a whole game without a smoke? Is there any special trick or is there a guy I can bribe to let me sneak out a back door for 3 mins? Or am I better off flying to calgary? Seems weird that in kelowna I can smoke on the patio at a bar, but in vancouver I cant go to a hockey game. Any tips or suggestions from smokers would be greatly appreciated. If you are just replying to say smokers are bad or something, please don't. Thanks!
