  1. The Nobel Foundation does not recognize Kirsty Duncan as a Nobel laureate, so there's the most direct answer. She can claim to be a member of a group that won the award, but that does not confer the award upon herself, which is an important distinction. Many Nobel laureates have researchers and assistants who help them with their research and contribute to that person's work and subsequent award. It does not entitle them to that award personally.
  2. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Did you not read my post? I already said the Sedins and Thornton would be inducted, so I don't see why you feel the need to point that out. I don't think the Canucks are 'owed' any inductees. The franchise has been mediocre for most of its existence, and considering how few players are inducted each year, my guess is they will be waiting awhile.

    Not sold on Green being able to do the job. Don't want to end up with a revolving door of rookie coaches and young players like the Oilers did
  4. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    You are right. By my own standards Joe Thornton wouldn't be top candidate either (although he has averaged nearly a PPG over a two decade career, including nearly 400 goals) But we know he will be inducted, as will the Sedins. I have always believed that the HOF should be reserved for a select few, and while I can see players with outstanding regular season numbers (like Ovechkin for example) get inducted, I think there has to be some career success at the postseason level for those not in that category. You can add Torino to the list of pro-Sedin induction arguments if you want, but like you said, the vast majority dont have those credentials. I agree, which is why I dont want every team's top line players in the HOF. If you think the Sedins deserve to share a space with Gretzky, Sakic or Yzerman, ok. But they didn't do what those guys did. Same goes for Jumbo (and for the record I love Jumbo, he still plays with some jump. The twins should take notes)
  5. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    I am sure the team wont either.
  6. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Yeah well how can you expect him to when half the defense can't? Not going to start pointing fingers at young guys, the leaders need to set an example and they haven't been for several seasons now.
  7. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    I don't think they deserve to be in the HOF. I know thats unpopular but their careers were not that spectacular outside of a handful of seasons and their playoff numbers are seriously lacking. Compare them with Crosby/Malkin and Kane/Toews for example. There isnt enough in the postseason to warrant it. But whatever. The bar has been lowered in the HOF already so I know they will get in one day.
  8. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Probably would help if the defense also knew how to make a proper outlet pass. Its hard to get the puck when you're defending all night, and I would hardly put that on Goldobin. Pouliot and Michael Del-Saster made things much harder.
  9. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    I saw a team that gave a f*** tonight. It was the Coyotes. Dont sit there and tell me Im wrong when the Canucks only get 17 shots all game long. This was against a last place team.
  10. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Yeah I am really happy Daniel upped his production since the team was basically eliminated from the postseason. Maybe Henrik will get to 5 goals this season... Seriously though, if you think these guys are earning their salaries I have to disagree. We all know they have talent and even dominated the league for a few seasons. But they obviously can't inspire their team to win and its been several seasons of garbage hockey now. Every postgame its the same 'we weren't good enough' interview, and that's fine. The truth is there is no desire to win in that locker room. The hunger is long gone. Super. Let's clear the way for some hungrier players. Hell, did you watch Arizona? Those guys were hungry, despite where they are in the standings. Won't be long before they are kicking the Canucks' ass every game unless something changes in that locker room.
  11. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    They are just counting the games remaining now. The season was over in January, and the give a f*** meter has been inching down to zero every game since the new year.
  12. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Sorry if i hurt your fee fees but 22 and 33 have been zombies for the better part of 3 seasons now. It's time to end the madness. The greats knew when to hang them up, and the Sedins aren't on their level, so...
  13. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    You would think with no pressure this team would play a little looser, but nope. Puck possession stinks, they can't score. Don't bother with the injury argument, the twins still take top line salaries. They are 37, not 137. I would say that the Canucks are the worst team in the NHL and they will have the record to prove that after 82 games. You can really tell that they don't want to get hurt out there. How many more mercenaries and UFAs just looking for a payday are gonna come thru Vancouver I wonder? At least the Sedins are classy. 'Classy' means not giving a crap about anything, showing no emotion or drive and being content with just packing it up every April. Enjoy your banners, and do the team a favour: Don't come back next year. Your time is over.
  14. I don't understand your argument here. What Harper did or didn't do is irrelevant, the economic landscape in 2008 is much different than today. The fact remains that TODAY Canada is in a situation where it needs to be more competitive for increased investment. A decrease in corporate taxation would benefit small business owners in Canada, and we could definitely cut many of the wasteful government programs that are serving little to no purpose. Private sector encouragement, public sector austerity. I am glad you agree that increased taxation and regulation aren't good economic policy... I am afraid that you are the one who might be mistaken regarding the details of the Khadr situation. First off, the 'win' you are referring to is the 'denial of human rights' that was ruled by the Supreme Court in 2010. Furthermore, Khadr was in an American prison over which Canada has no authority, so the entity that was denying him human rights was the USA, not Canada. The civil suit came later and although the family was seeking $20 million in damages, (It was Trudeau who suggested the court cost might be $40 million) the case never actually went to court. I would have been interested to see the outcome of the case, because it was the Americans who denied his human rights, not the Canadian government. Trudeau gave the same money to Khadr that Harper gave to Maher Arar, the big difference being that Arar was innocent of his crimes and Khadr was guilty, however he was treated in prison, so for all we know the case could have been thrown out. Khadr could have always tried to sue the Americans for his humans right violations, they were the party responsible. Whatever happened to 'we don't negotiate with terrorists'.? Redistributing wealth IS socialism, as is any method where government seizes the means of production to distribute as they see fit.(by taxation, regulation or otherwise) I never said I was OK with 'giving money to corporations'. How about I keep my money, the corporations keep theirs and we cut government spending. I can't speak to what a real life federal NDP government might do, as they haven't been elected, but I can sure look at the provincial ones (take BC for example) They just released a budget, let's take a look: What's that? A new payroll tax in the latest budget? Steps to create universal daycare? Expanded benefits for those with lower income? All forms of wealth redistribution. That all sounds great if you are a recipient, but taxpayers end up paying for these things. Sure, Canada has many social programs (turns out none of the big three parties are very capitalistic in modern Canada) but the NDP most definitely lead the way in many of these categories. Check some boxes here... -Increased progressive taxation? Check -Emphasis on 'universal' programs leading to elimination of private sector competition? Check -Large campaign contributions from labour unions? Check. -Proliferation of those unions? Check Quack quack quack, this duck looks socialist to me. Now I can understand SOME government programs, to protect citizens' rights and the like, but I am not down with a sprawling quagmire of government bureaucracy that I have seen the NDP $&!# out in BC for decades. "I should be ashamed of myself' LMAO Self-righteous preaching does not equal an argument. Just because you and I don't agree doesn't mean I am ignorant. Maybe you are just wrong, have you ever considered that?
  15. Heavy is the head that wears the crown. I never asked anyone to be perfect. I asked for a leader who does what must be done. I can't even bring myself to call Justin a leader. Everything he says is wooden and hollow, and his government's policies center around identity politics and special interests.
