  1. Canucks will pull a cOiler and get Pavel Bure to call them. Pavel will get Putin on the phone too - they are neighbours after all....
  2. Yeah, Calgary's management is so much better....
  3. This is good news in a way. Goalie standing on his head and making the team look better than they are will hopefully result in a lower draft position than the Canucks. The sweet spot would be no playoffs for the flames but no top 10 pick either. Hopefully Johnson makes this a possibility. Those draft picks they threw away to get Elliott will make it even sweeter! It will be nice if the Canucks can pick higher in the draft than both Alberta teams for once.
  4. I dont mind Pratt and the Bro. Mind you im an older fan and I remember those guys from several of their past gigs. Bro is a little cheesy and Pratt is over dramatic but they are not boring and at least have an opinion. B Mac, Taylor and Moj are a pretty good crew. Taylor and B Mac are the best that station has. I will always remember Taylor and his one liners like "He shoots upstairs, where dad stashes the playboys" back in the old CKVU days...these guys are all local guys and have a great sense of the local sports culture and history - a nice break from the national media personalities we are inundated with on a daily basis on TV.
  5. This team has to be 100% healthy to even challenge for a wild card. What I see is a team with no veteran d, a bunch of AHLers sprinkled in the bottom 9, and a couple of goalies that can steal a win once in a while. Not tough enough, not talented enough. Unfortunately there are going to be lots of nights like this - close but no cigar. But if JB does his job right he will continue building through the draft. 3 years of pain coming up. Look at our cupboard in Utica with all of these injuries - its bare. Reinforcements are at least 2 years away I just wish they were equipped with some more toughness so at least we can lose with honour.
  6. The inverse of this bad feeling right now is the good feeling you will have on draft day. You have to give the team credit though, they do try hard despite being handcuffed by a general lack of talent and toughness.
  7. Right or wrong Hall put a guy on a stretcher. The honourable thing would be for a Canuck to grab him, drop the gloves and start feeding him. Id be happier with that than a win. Just once, just once after bending over year after year.
  8. Agree. but..they dont have the personnel and will continue to get pummelled in the future because of it. The only guy that can hit to punish is Gudbranson, and if he crosses the line the Canucks are down to 4 d .
  9. Cam newton! I don't recognize most of them!
  10. Watched the game in a bar in Seattle we made them turn on CBC on one of the 20 tvs. At least the boys got 2 points. And as a bonus the Carolina Panthers are staying at our hotel! It's been a great Saturday night!
  11. The game starts at 4pm today - That sums it up for me. For decades Ive endured our national media outlets pandering to and slobbering over anything Toronto. When they do a Toronto vs ANY other CANADIAN team broadcast you get the sense that the other team is in a foreign country. Ive seen Canuck game pre-empted by meaningless blue jays games, Ive watched Doug Gilmour get kissed on live TV by CBC hosts, and listened to broadcast teams practically openly cheer for the laffs in the playoffs. In the old days we would get like 20 weekend laff games and maybe 6 Canuck games. There are too many examples to bring up. Also, lets not forget that the leafs have been horrible for a decade. Now that they are improving - watch out ...the love fest is going to get elevated to a new level. It will be like the early 90s again. Watching two leaf muppets singing to a bon jovi song 100 times in the sports highlights is just the beginning. I dont hate the team that much, its the fact that the team is shoved down Canada's throat that makes me dislike Toronto.
  12. lol, so true. those tools froth at the mouth at the mention of Vancouver.
  13. Very reasonable Emily. My favorite solution to all of this fireworks with the leafs would be for Daniel to drop the gloves and speed bag Kadri....but the chances of that happening would be as high as Pedan becoming a top 4 dman...lol...
