  1. Hawks fire Quennville

    No my good buddy Jeremy got promoted. Pretty pumped today.
  2. Come on toews. Blaming someone else’s poor behavior as a reason to write off others bad actions is pathetic and childish. Like seriously. But... but...trump also lied..... These women have done something down right disgusting, trying to deflect from this issue does no good. There is no excuse for this type of action. Just admit these women are terrible humans and move on. I know blaming others and playing the victim card is the motto of the left but this is new low.

    I’m actually surprised you put this much effort in trying to explain things to anti-gun left. It’s extremely hard to have any sort of discussion with some people as they are so misinformed and lack any sort of knowledge regarding firearms. They are so bought into the information (that they keep parroting) from other uninformed sources, that they ignore quality information and stats from people who are actively involved and have insight into the firearm industry. The sad part is that there is common ground that could be found, but rather than having an honest intellectual debate, they’d rather just point and yell. They don’t care that the 90% terminology they use is wrong and makes them look like uneducated fools. I’ve gotten to the point believing that they aren’t actually interested in finding a middle ground, they aren’t interested in learning and working together to come up with a solution. Instead they turned it into to a I’m right your wrong, if you don’t agree with me (insert insult). It’s now become a full on two sided war, when it should have been a cooperative compromise focused improving the safety of all.

    Canada sells the AR-15. It’s one of our most popular restricted semi auto firearms. We do have tight restrictions like cartridge capacity and it’s only allowed use at the gun range but we still sell them. People act as if an AR-15 is the ultimate killing weapon. It’s become the scary term everyone has nightmares about but ultimately that just shows there lack of knowledge in firearms. In terms of power the ar-15 used .223, which if that same caliber was used to hunt big game in canada you would get a 50k fine and your license taken away. That caliber typically used for coyotes. Theres a reason why handguns cause 9x more murders and are used almost 3x more in mass shootings. They are much easier to conceal, they are just as easy to obtain in the US and can do just as much damage. But it’s strange that people’s sticking point is on the term AR-15 yet basically defend handguns?

    Horvat exceeding expectations has everything to do with Bo and his work ethic. Giving the credit to WD is a discredit to Bo. WD had nothing to do with Bo putting in all the effort off season to work on his skating. WD was a terrible coach and this team wlll be so much better off without him. Glad JB set him packing. Good bye and good riddance.
  6. I'm not so sure about that. There is 7.6 billion people in the world. If each person got 1/4 acre, that would mean we'd need 1.9 billion acres of land. The size of Alberta is only 163.5 million acres. The problem with overpopulation isn't about individual livable space, it's has to do with the negative affects of providing that large population with liveable amenities. Things such as providing clean water, food and even clean air.
  7. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    There's no foot contact at, you might want to get those eyes check. Haha, that's hilarious. Love when people try to call me out on that, gives me a real good chuckle...
  8. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    Yes that’s correct. And performs an illegal move with his foot to take him down. Being a beer league ref means next to nothing. There was no race. EP wasn’t trying to beat him with speed. His feet were spreed far apart. He was not in a skating motion and he infact got his shoulder infront of matheson and used that momentum to knock him down. Look at how EP rotated his top half as Matheson is falling down. EP foot has already made contact with Matheson. That foot connection is what caused matheson to lose balance. EP is not going to knock down a player who’s got 30lbs on him. No most dump and chases don’t end up with a player on his back heading feet first into the boards. Not stretched out lifting the foot of matheson which by definition is a slew foot. What EP should do is tie him up and glide him the boards where the second man In can come out with the puck. That is what I was taught at almost every level. The goal isn’t to out muscle/knock a player down heading into a board battle. It’s too dangerous and it’s why we got rid of touch icing.
  9. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    On a follow through yes you are correct. Its only a penalty if a player was trying to bat a puck in mid air and ended up hitting a player. Either way my point remains. Intent does not define an illegal action.
  10. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    Oh good, glad some nobody like you cleared that. All is well now.
  11. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    Actually it does. Incidental elbow to the head still = hit to head. Remember Hansen’s suspension. Following through on a shot and hitting a player in the face with your stick is still a penalty. Intent isn’t what defines an illegal action.
  12. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    Answer this. How did matheson fall? Did EP’s right foot have nothing to do with the reason Matheson falling backwards. Do you not clealry see EP’s foot stretched out right behind mathesons left foot?
  13. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    Hockey is a contact sport muffin. Hits are thrown. That doesn’t mean every time a player throws a hit they intent to injure the opposing and concuss them. Maybe you should be watching soccer you know a less physical sport. I never said you did. I said other on this thread did. Ah so your pissed with the belief that matheson intented to hurt EP but feel justified in calling out the coach and team for not going out of there way with full “intentions” to putting a hurt on matheson???
  14. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    How about the NHL definition. “Slew-footing is the act of a player using his leg or foot to knock or kick an opponent's feet from under him, or pushes an opponent's upper body backward with an arm or elbow, and at the same time with a forward motion of his leg, knocks or kicks the opponent's feet from under him, causing him to fall violently to the ice.” Do you need to break down the play. EP used his right foot to take out Mathesons left leg. EP at the same time pushed Matheson’s upper body backwards while continuing to move his right foot in a forward motion (even lifting his foot on the play). That caused Matheson to fall onto the ice, had they been another 3 feet closer to the boards with this happened it would have had a good chance of resulting in an ankle injury. Look at the 3 second mark again. EP right leg is stretched out off the ice pushing matheson left forward. I can’t even believe people are arguing this as it’s crystal clear that by definition EP slew footed Matheson. The problem so many people are struggling with is the severity of a slew foot. Yes there are different level, just like slashing, using your stick to hit an opponent in the back of the legs where there’s no padding isn’t as dangerous as the full Kessel swing but they are both by definition are a slash. Yes marchand’s version of the slew foot is far more dangerous, but that doesn’t mean EP’s by definition wasn’t. Take if from Matheson’s opinion, all he knows is his back foot got taken out causing him to fall into the boards. It’s a dangerous play regardless of which player on which team did it. It’s funny that if it was Edler or Tanev going into the boards having the same thing happen to them people wouldn’t be coming up with the excuses. It’s also becoming crystal clear which posters got too thick of homer glasses on. Being a Canucks fan doesn’t mean you have a makeup facts and ignore reality (that’s the definition of leafs fans).
  15. Matheson hit on Pettersson

    Unless you're changing the definition of a slew foot there's nothing to disagree about. Using your foot to taking a players back legs out is a slew foot simple as that. It's extremely black and white, it's clear as day. You can see exactly what happened that resulted in Matheson falling down into the boards, it's a dangerous play. Ah so one game defines a players career..... And he got suspended and will likely have to answer the bell in jan. It's been handled yet the majority of the fan base including you are taking to too far. When did I support what Matheson did? I just said everyone need to take a step back for a bit. Me calm down? Do I need to pull up some of the quote posted in this thread of people losing there cool? Glad you could demonstrate your knowledge on the sport. Yes there are different levels of severity and intent like any illegal play but at the end of the day a slew foot is a slew foot. If that exact same play happen to Juolevi and he went into the board and broke it ankle, this board would lose it's mind like doing with the throw down. Just as players sometimes unintentionally get their arms up a bit to high when throwing a body check, a player needs to be in control of there feet (and stick) as well. Who's making excuses now? Being a fan doesn't mean you have to blind to what happens on the ice. There's no deny how EP knocked Matheson to the ice. EP's foot took out the back foot of Matheson = Slew foot, intent isn't what defines the play, the actions are. Again when Dan Murphy disagrees with your opinion on a Canucks player slew foot, you know it's time reassess.
