  1. Can or should Jake be our Tom Wilson?

    If Virtanen ever has the same type of impact Wilson had for Washington this year we should all be jumping for joy. Those are the kind of role players that help win you the Cup.
  2. Devastating. Absolutely idolized this guy, such a genuine guy and on the surface he was living the dream; travelling the world, eating good food, and experiencing life. I know he had his problems in his life, but it really seemed like he had overcome the worst of them. RIP Anthony

    Damn, that song is beautiful.
  4. 2018 NHL Combine Results

    The NHL scouting combine means next to nothing the vast majority of the time. I wouldn't read in to any of it too much. In 2013 none of Nathan Mackinnon, Seth Jones, or Jonathan Drouin participated in fitness testing.

    Picking on the Seahawks is also a lot of fun. While there are lots of diehard fans (especially in Seattle), it's curious how many "lifelong Seahawks fans" started appearing here in BC in 2013. Most of them are extremely thin skinned.
  6. [Signing] Canucks sign Petrus Palmu

    Well ideally he will be There is definitely room for him to pack on a few more pounds, though he is almost 21 so I doubt we see a ton more growth like we see with some 18 year old prospects. By all accounts he is a very strong kid, and you can tell by watching him play that he does have great leg strength, which is exactly why St. Louis was so successful. Guy had tree trunks for legs.

    Strong for his size? Undoubtedly. You couldn't make the NHL if you were 5'4 and weak for your size. Guy probably had to work harder than most to even get a sniff at the NHL. But as for him being strong for the NHL? Extremely below par.

    I'm not saying it is a perfect relationship, and obviously it's not an exact science to just apply an equal ratio to differing heights, but you still seem to be missing my main point. Nothing about his weight at his height is cause to believe he is overly strong, even if you just compare him to other similarly sized NHL players. I actually like Palmu as a prospect for where we got him, I just didn't understand that specific comment

    I'm not saying Gerbe is stronger than Palmu, I was saying that saying Palmu is strong based off of his measurements makes no sense. In fact I already explicitly said Gerbe wasn't strong and noted Palmu had great balance on his skates so...

    No (although there generally is a strong positive correlation), but the notion that him weighing that much at his size makes him strong just doesn't make sense. He's technically less "stocky" than the average NHL player. There is nothing extraordinary about his playing weight whatsoever. Almost all NHL players in the 5'6-5'9 range are between 170 and 190lbs.
  11. [Signing] Canucks sign Petrus Palmu

    I'm curious to why you think that in particular means he's strong. 172lbs at 66 inches tall gives him 2.6lbs/in. That is the equivalent of a 6'1 (73in.) player weighing 190lbs. The size of an average NHL player is 6'1 and 201 lbs. Palmu has some grit to his game, and has really solid balance on his skates, but he's by no means a heavy set player for his size. Heck, Nathan Gerbe is listed at 5'4 (64 in.) and 176lbs and nobody is going to mistake him for a strong player.
  12. NFL thread

    The DUI was pretty bad, he tried to make it seem like it was an "oops I took a bit too much of whatever and made a mistake", but the toxicology report is pretty damning. It doesn't take a doctor to know you shouldn't be driving while being on opiods, xanax, ambien, and marijuana. Like cmon. And just look at how rocked he was lol. I think all the injuries and the scrutiny really messed with his mojo. No doubt he was one of the best golfers of all-time in his prime, but those days look long gone.
  13. NFL thread

    He also got charged with a DUI and is essentially irrelevant as top golfer nowadays (hasn't won a thing since 2013). He flamed out big time.

    Vegas has been hot all season. Literally and figuratively.
  15. The Workout Thread

    Where did you buy your ephedrine? Went into the supplement store by my gym and asked if they carried any, and the employees there told me that they "legally weren't allowed to carry it anymore", which apparently isn't true in the slightest lol.
