  1. Awe crap, no more DT? Pratt is an ass, but Tomlinson was the last remaining voice of reason and I looked forward to hearing his thoughts. Sorry to hear that, maybe Sportsnet steals DT.

    [Signing] Canucks sign Quinn Hughes

    I am super pumped about this, will be awesome to see his ability. This said, expectations must be tempered. Reports are that he does turnover the puck at times trying to be too fancy, and that will be exposed heavily in the NHL. there will be growing pains, but he will come into his own. GO CANUCKS GO

    Vehicle Purchase Question

    I'm a Finance Manager for a large dealership here on VI. If the bank has incorrect details on her income, she can call the banks customer service line and explain the situation, and the dealership may lose its funding on the deal, which will make her signed contract null and void, but she needs to do this ASAP. As others have suggest though, I would talk to the owner/general manger and discuss. I would also explain to them that you are prepared to get the Vehicle Sales Authority involved, as that is the governing entity for car dealerships in BC. If she can prove she was coerced then it shouldn't be an issue, especially if shes formally requested to cancel the deal AND they have misreported her credit info, this all looks poor on the dealership and they probably won't want the fall out. We get a lot of business from Vancouver and lower mainland, and I'm starting to understand why. Keep your head about you when dealing with them, don't deal with the salesman or the finance manager, go to the top. Good luck.
  4. Well lookie lookie.. Canucks are 6th from bottom, with the Ducks resurging.  Given our play of late, is it too much to think we will be picking top 4 possibly this year!?  If so, who are you praying we get?

      I’d say maybe, but the Ducks are probably the worst team in the league after Ottawa via eye balls test. If they were to pass us, some questions would need to be raised.

      I'm putting all my faith in this years lottery. We gotta get the #2 pick and get Jack Hughes

      the question would have to be, was playing the young guns too much and the injuries that did us in? i for one have been entertained most games this year. a few stinkers but good effort in most games. 

  5. Is it just me, or did Greener look a little emotional during that press scrum?  Wonder if Edlers injury is worse than it looks?  Scary stuff

      Any time you see one of your players go down like that, it's emotionally jarring even if you find out they're okay afterwards.

      Look.  Seriously.  We need to lose a lot in a row here.  We need to get way out of playoff contention so two things happen.  First we get a really firiggin high pick (first ibearll would be nice.) and second (I’m too drunk to think of second).

  6. Baertschi flying back to Vancouver because of illness?  Anyone else smell somethings up.  Flu symptoms don't normally end your road trip do they?

      They were very quick to say not concussion..

    3. NUCKER67

      NUCKER67

      They did say right away that it wasn't concussion related - maybe for the benefit of the team he's being traded to? ;) Benning did say that they weren't going to trade any prospects/future core or picks at the TDL, but Baertschi isn't any of these.

      Likely he's got the flu, and the team wants him to not give it to the other players. 

  7. Watching this beauty Tryamkin montage, makes me wonder if we could trade out Guddy, and bring Groot back.  Much more imposing hitter!

      Would love to see that monster come back. A future LD side of Hughes, Juolevi and Tryamkin would be incredible. Get a skilled RD and we have a cup contending D. Soderstrom or Seider this draft and DAMN!

      @-AJ- Literally read my mind ..i was all ready to post your exact thing

       

      How can you not want to play in the NHL? its frustrating..i hope he comes around

      A bird in the hand (Big bird anyhow...Guds) is worth more than a Russian in the bush.:lol:

       

      Anyhow, why does having one “big guy” preclude having two?  Or...

       

       

       

  8. Curious about Rogers Arena/Canucks policy on cameras.  I'm going to tomorrows game, but there isn't a consistent message regarding what's allowed. I have a DSLR with a 200mm lens which is great if you are stuck up high in the stands.  Does anyone know what would pass through security?

      Which phones being cameras these days there's no way they'd care about a small digital one. I could maybe see them having a problem with a DSLR, but if I had to guess I'd say you'll get through with it.

      As long as you're not carrying it in a large bag. They're so anal about bag size.

  9. Watching the game tonight (the last period and overtime thanks sportsnet) I am wondering.. Who else think Brock is knee deep in sophomore slump, and if so, how much of an opportunity is this for GM JB to sign him sub 7m?

    1. RetroCanuck

      RetroCanuck

      Honestly I don't think he's looked good this year and Pettersson in many ways has inflated his numbers.

       

      I think he will hit right at the 7M mark with his next contract if his play remains the same.

    2. -AJ-

      -AJ-

      This season was a win-win either way. Either Brock was crazy good, or he had a slump and we got him long-term for cheaper. In all honesty, he's not really in that much of a slump. His points-per-game is nearly identical to last year's. Unless he gives a discount, I see him being around $7 to $7.5M per year.

  10. Anybody on Van Island want to see USA vs Finland, I have 3 tickets for sale.

  11. After 80 hours of no power, this family of 5 is grateful for the hard work the Hydro crews are doing.

      Hey Merry Christmas...totally feel for you and your family.....good ending!

      @Type R was in Cedar/Yellow Point/North Oyster when the storm hit. You're not kidding about Yellow Point. It got smoked, so did Cowichan. So did a lot of places. We've been without power since Thursday morning and according to BC Hydro there's "no current estimate as to its return".

       

      This is a different kind of Christmas. Today I'll head to my mom's to empty her fridge and freezer of all the food, salvage what I can, and take the rest to the dump. 

       

      At least we all have somewhere warm to stay when some truly do not. 

       

      This storm was &^@#ed.

      @janisahockeynut, did she make it through ok?  The surrounding islands are a concern, Pender got hit hard, it sounds like Saltspring is coming around, Galiano is also down from what I heard.

       

      @Green Building You are right about this one being different.  I was pleasantly surprised with how my kids reacted.  They love their screen time, but managed very well without it.  They came together, found games to play and looked after each other.  I've noticed though, people are far friendlier, chattier and genuinely concerned with each others well being. 

  12. Question, Do the world junior games run quicker than NHL?  Less TV breaks etc?  I have tickets to New Years game, but it starts at 7:30, and need to drive 1:45 to get home for new years eve get together.

      I went to the game yesterday, scheduled start at 5 pm., got out of there at about 7:20.  If there is no OT you should be OK and even if there is possibly.

      US vs Finland, should be a decent showdown.

      Yeah, I'm going too. Looking forward to all the USA games.

  13. Holy Crap!!  I just won 3 tickets to see US play Finland on the 31st.. I never win anything, thank you Universe!!

      Actually not sure.  We live in Nanaimo, and are a family of 5, so someones going to miss out, and its a long drive.

  14. Listened to LegoRocks99Gaming on YouTube who echo's Daniel Wagners thought on voting Bo for the All Star Game.. Have to say i'm in.. Will be voting as much as I can to see our Cappy go to the show.  Have a listen..

  15. Rousell reminds me a lot of Lapierre, yappy agitator that can still make some plays.  With every game, I appreciate him a little more.
