  1. Saw this on AGT one of the comedians in the final has been a wrestling fan, so he got to meet Chris Jericho and have some fun, I'll admit when Jericho put the Simon Cowell image on the dummy and Ryan went off it was pretty funny
  2. Crazy was looking at some numbers salary wise and was shocked lol, not including retained salary though that's scary lol. Vancouver Canucks "active" roster salary for 2019-20 is around $81M Blue Jays "active" roster salary for 2019 is almost $39M
  3. I think this was a good signing and tbh all the pressure is on Brock if he wants to be paid after this contract or not. He's got 3 years to prove he's worth high dollars, but that means all the pressure is on him to stay healthy and produce and if he doesn't then he won't be getting near that top dollar. He's definitely a goal scoring sniper, so you're getting your money for his goal scoring not worried about that at all, and I don't care about how he's getting paid yearly all I care is that it's an average of $5.875M yearly, so getting him under 6M, injury prone or not he's proven to be able to score and that's not easy in the NHL.
  4. I do believe the Ferland acquisition has put Virtanen more on the bubble now, but at the same time I'm a Jake supporter, so no way am I giving up on him I'll wait until he's 25 to make that decision. I do believe if he finds a way to get opportunity on the top 2 lines or some PP time this year, that's when he can start producing offensively more, but if he continues to be on the 3rd and 4th lines obviously offensive production won't be there, and now due to some of the new acquisitions it's going to be a lot more tougher for Jake to find room on the top 2 lines.
  5. I'd probably pick Vancouver first just being a home town guy and wanting to see this city get a cup, my 2nd choice would probably be Florida, nice and warm less attention if things aren't going that great, at least you have nice hot weather to play golf in
  6. Well he needs to get 20 first..... Setting the bar high isn't going to help.
  7. I forgot to mention this the first time, but another thing I read about 6-8 months ago regarding harms of vaping that didn't get as much attention because they weren't dying at the time, but that teenagers had their teeth rotting out after 2 months of using vapes, now if it can rot teeth out that fast what the heck is it doing to the rest of your body, ex. lungs....
  8. Dorm party or not, you're missing the point and one of the biggest issues regarding things like this, drunk or not forcing something on someone to do is never acceptable, hopefully you figure that out one day.
  9. Guess who's in the news again... Male Classmate Tells NYT About Brand New Sexual Misconduct Allegation Against Brett Kavanaugh In a shocking exposé and analysis released late Saturday by the New York Times, one of Kavanaugh’s male classmates at Yale relayed a story in which the eventual judge made apparently unwanted sexual contact with yet another female student during his time there. Per that report: We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student. Mr. Stier, who runs a nonprofit organization in Washington, notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly. (We corroborated the story with two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier.) https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/male-student-tells-nyt-about-brand-new-sexual-misconduct-allegation-against-brett-kavanaugh/
  10. I don't think they felt they had to yet because I don't think they expected deaths to happen so soon, but I'm sure now due to some of the deaths that are being linked to it, they will be checking that out asap. But it's a little bizarre how vapers are dying within in a couple years or less now, instead of 20 years down the road like cigarette users do.
  11. I've always been against these vaping things until more studies had been done, not saying smoking is any better because it's not, but it does seem these vapes are harming and killing people faster then cigarettes are in a short time frame, and that's very alarming.
  12. Does Toronto have any good prospects in their system? Because they won't be playing for Toronto in their future
  13. Interesting how Ben Kuzma wrote yesterday, Jake Virtanen looks leaner and sounds more confident. So did Jake just not eat all summer and lose weight and not train instead....
  14. No the problem here is you trying to say going back to your first reply to me, that this is like any other profession out there, which it's not, it's totally different. I get what you've been saying, but it's this one part you keep jumping back and forth on because you originally wanted to make this the same as how someone in a normal job gets a raise, and my point to you has been it's not the same. So I asked you things to see how you would react using your logic towards it, that's all.
  15. I never said you said that... but your logic you were trying to say to me implied that someone won't give a raise to someone if they have past injuries which could limit them in the future for doing their job, so I used that towards Brock, but I felt you would switch it around again to make sure Brock gets paid. I will strongly disagree with your last statement, I understand the cap rises so eventually so do salaries, but that shouldn't mean 21-22 year olds deserve all that extra money in the increase of the salary cap rise, it shouldn't be all only going to them, after 6 years of showing you deserve is when it should be going to them not after 3 years.
  16. So going by what you're implying and now Brock, I guess he doesn't deserve much of a raise at all, back injury, wrist injury, groin injury in past, so he doesn't deserve a raise then.....
  17. They're really trying to push McDavid out of that city by the looks of it.... Those colors look like something the Islanders should be using not the Oilers.
  18. It looks like it says "SO" and the word Shootout came to mind, when you think of SO in hockey.
  19. Honestly thinking like that is the last I want to think like, but at the same time you need to make a stand and hold your ground as well, so I'm not against what you're saying, if him and his agent are really going to play this game.
  20. Not sure what job you do, but raises are normally based on how well you do your job over the years of doing it, and prove you deserve it, not on what they're hoping you may do in the future.
  21. Even McDavid, I get he's the best in the game and if there's one exception to someone getting paid young it's him, but I would still argue 10M should be his max on a 2nd contract. Regarding Brock, I get he's a skilled young player, but he does need to improve on his skating still imo, and yes injuries with wrist and back and groin need to be factored in on the contract I believe as well. Imo he shouldn't be making more then Bo yet in his career, even if they do play different positions.
  22. I'm starting to not like this new trend that these young guys believe they deserve the same amount of money or more, then other star players who have earned it throughout their careers. Like the Tavares thing in TO, Tavares played year after year after year at a high calibre level and proved he deserved to be paid that after years of showing he was worth it in the league for 9 years. Then you see someone like Matthews after only 3 years in the NHL and now gets to make more than Tavares , and seeing Marner want that kind of money now too, definitely losing respect for some of these new generation players in the league.
