  1. Sometimes I just don't get CDC logic. Everyone here wants to win, yet they don't want to hire a coach because he beat the Canucks in the finals? CJ might not be my favourite coach in the league, but he outclasses WD by a wide margin. He might not be a fit in Vancouver, but coaches like Julien don't come up too often.
  2. At least Horvat's kickin arse!
  3. If I was a Coyotes fan, I'd be pissed!!! Good thing there are no coyote fans...
  4. I've been living in Calgary for almost 6 years, so it's true when I say I hate the Flames so, so much. I want them to crash and burn more than almost anyone, but those saying Monahan isn't the real deal are just crazy. As much as it pains me to admit it, I would take Monahan over Horvat any day, and every GM in the league would agree. If Monahan was here learning from Henrik, we certainly wouldn't be worrying about our next 1C. This is a good signing for the Flames, the only question is HOW good, and only time will tell.
  5. You mean to tell me the owner of this sports franchise invested hundreds of millions of dollars and expects to earn a profit? WHAT AN OUTRAGE!!! edit: I'm just kidding there snowflake, Aquaman spends all that money just for you! It's true...
  6. At this point I'd say it's safe to bank on them for another 3 years. After that, you would have to make another assessment. Maybe they will play into their 40s. With their play style, it's possible.
  7. I bet most goalies wouldn't consider Vancouver the best place to sign on long term. Partly because of our reputation from previous trade catastrophes, but partly because we have such a good goalie program with kids looking to steal jobs. Players want stability and we can't really commit long term with Markstrom and Demko climbing the ranks. Also, you stating that Miller lost the games is just silly. Our team lost. I won't even entertain your assumption that Miller cost us McDavid. lol Did you learn nothing from the draft lottery this year? Maybe you should just stick to Rugby.
  8. Playing the league average SV% on a losing team like ours is pretty damn good. He may be slightly overpayed as he has declined a bit over the years, but we're only talking a couple hundred grand in reality. That's ok though, cause how else do you get a goalie of Millers caliber to sign with a goalie graveyard like ours? Take a look at the Flames if you want to know what it's like to cheap out on mediocre goalies. We needed the stability Miller brings as Lack couldn't quite cut it. Do you think Carolina fans are happy with Lack who only has a .901 SV%? (Not to mention Ward being payed 6.8M for a .909 SV%. Yikes!!) Besides, who's to say Millers influence on Markstrom isn't absolutely priceless? Remember when Markstrom cleared wavers the first year we got him? Other teams had already labelled him a bust. I'd bet a Veteran presence from the likes of Miller played a big part in turning his game around. (Along with Clouts and Rollie of course) Face it, Miller was a good decision and the best goalie available to us at the time. Best part is, next year we can do what ever we want as his short contract expires
  9. BDA

    I like juolevi, but he is a mediocre pick at 5th overall. Far too long of a shot considering the available options.
  10. Why does draft day always bring out the morons?
  11. It's amazing the depths the PCers will go to deny any connection to islam. This guy pledged allegiance to ISIS, was known by his peers to be muslim, has traveled to saudi arabia multiple times in the last few years for a "pilgrimage" and was investigated by the FBI because of his friendship to the boston bombers. This is a case of muslim extremism. The fact that mental illness plays a part should not surprise you considering the EXTREMIST part. As far as denying this clown access to firearms, I think any sane person would agree. The way to do that however is easier said then done. Just take a look at France and Brussels where these types of firearms are strictly prohibited.
