  1. As a current Beedie student, I was in the same position you are in. The expectation for me was always UBC and SFU really wasn't in my considerations until I actually started applying to schools. Looking back now, I can't imagine going to UBC for arts. I'm not going to talk sh*t about arts but Beedie is a phenomenal business school and there are so many opportunities. I think it comes down to who you are and what you expect out of university. If you are a competitive person and want to do "business things" like networking events, club work, etc. do business. I can't comment too much on UBC but I've been to a couple frat parties and the campus is quite nice. That's all I know about UBC. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
  2. The same people disappointed in Juolevi's development would've been disappointed in Hampus Lindholm's development as well if he were a Canuck player. If you expect a fish to climb a tree, it will disappoint you every time. If Benning wanted a guy that went 100 mph like Subban, he would've drafted Sergachev. Instead, he opted for the safe, two-way guy in Juolevi. Benning knows exactly what he got.
  3. It looks like Shattenkirk really didn't want to stay in STL. The expectations for the return on Hansen should remain the same; late 1st/young prospect.
  4. They are VERY different players.
  5. Wow, he does not look good in that uniform
  6. This man has given so much to the team and played with the heart of a lion. Good luck Burr!
  7. Mike Tyson maybe
  8. These Swedes can't handle PLD along the boards
  9. I'm going to assume you're Irish because of your name
  10. Seeing as Juolevi is a year younger and was chosen captain over Saarijarvi, I don't think I am the only one who would choose Juolevi. Valimaki is not on the same level has Juolevi either. However, I see your point as I would choose those two to score over Juolevi. My point was that Juolevi is a safer defenseman and is multi-dimensional. I would trust Juolevi to protect a lead and I wouldn't be scared to have Juolevi in any situation. I probably didn't choose my wording carefully.
  11. I said Juolevi is the type of guy coaches can trust with a minute left. You quoted me and said he wasn't on the ice with a minute left for the past couple games. Well, there isn't a single defenceman I'd take over Juolevi on that Finnish roster and I'd say Juolevi being named captain is a testament to that. Not putting the captain on the ice in the final minute is questionable. I'm not using the coach as a scapegoat, I just think his deployment of players is questionable and many others would agree with me. FWIW, Juolevi was on the ice in the Czech game.
  12. Have you seen their coach?
  13. I think Mittelstadt has everything you could ask for in a center and then some.
  14. It's very easy to look at guys like Ehlers, Drouin or Keller and be excited about their 2 ppg in the Q or their dazzling highlight reels but often times it's the quiet, subtle guys that help win games. Juolevi won't show up in the "top 10 plays of the week" very often but he makes everybody around him better and when there's a minute left on the clock, coaches know there's that one guy they can always trust. Juolevi is that guy. Take the Sharks' playoff run for example. It's easy to see what Burns brings to the game but what about a guy like Vlasic? Tanev is probably the most boring player in the league but 29 other GMs would love to have him on their team. Tkachuck is going to be a phenomenal player but don't sleep on Juolevi. "Vanilla" is necessary sometimes.
