  1. (Discussion) I KEPT MY KESLER JERSEY... Because,.

    Lucic will be broken after the Kings make a playoff run. Not worth the commitment/price imo. Dump it all on Stamkos!
  2. The guy asking him to facetime with whomever... that was awkward. But he handled it like a pro.
  3. [Report] Travis Hamonic on the trading block

    Looks like he requested a trade at the start of the season to Western Canada. If a deal hasn't happened yet with Van, I doubt it's going to happen. 
  4. [PGT] Vancouver 4-3 Arizona

    I didn't get to see the whole game, so I'm not entirely sure on context, but Bo led all forwards in ice time by at least a minute and a half. He may not be putting up the points... yet... but I think he's turning into one of Willie's most reliable. The points will come.  
  5. Want to cancel cable - Canucks games too important

    That would be an interesting thing to try, with at least similar to what is done for getting American Netflix. I don't see why it wouldn't work...
  6. Want to cancel cable - Canucks games too important

    EDIT: So, I found this article which I think sums it up pretty good, as I thought this class action lawsuit against the NHL had helped in-market fans, but I was totally wrong, so unless you're a non-BC resident, then I think you're stuck with cable... http://www.broadstreethockey.com/2015/6/15/8783249/nhl-tv-settlement-settlement-game-center-live I was under the impression that you could buy these single team packages and still watch your team when you lived "in market", but it doesn't sound like that. It's still really only for out-of-market consumers and they'll still blackout in-market games.
  7. After watching that Top 10 Canucks Hawks video, I was reminded how that Mitchell hit on Toews was an absolute beauty!
  8. That article was pure gold! Highlights: Dallas Stars, TBL, Ducks, and Avs.
  9. Francesco Aquilini And Tom Brady's Email

    Also I wonder who the 6 were that he spoke with... Sedins, Higgins, Horvat, Bieksa, and Hamhuis?!
  10. Francesco Aquilini And Tom Brady's Email

    I think this was my favorite of all the emails (From one of Brady's guys to him regarding purchasing a domain name for his charity): It’s interesting — someone’s owned the TB12.com domain for 13 years, so it’s possible that they’re not a squatter and just like the “TB12” name, which is probably a better situation for us. Last week Tony suggested that — if we did want to try to buy TB12.com — we should do everything possible to conceal the real identity of the buyer. Apparently he’s gotten good deals in the past by having interns convince squatters that they’re doing school projects, etc. It’s worth doing whatever we can, I suppose.
  11. Canucks Announce New AGM

    Exactly, never said it was a bad thing. It's good if they can share roles.

  13. Benning on 1040 Post Sutter Trade

    This is a good question.. but I think it's being overthought a bit. Pitt used to own three third round picks, Buff's (Even though this pick is ours from a series of trades), NYI's, and their own (not sure if they've traded their own yet?). They traded us the highest of the three picks. Pitt now owns two picks in the third round which they can trade. So let's say they trade at the deadline, they won't trade a specific teams picks they could say we'll trade you A.) our next highest third round pick or B.) our lowest third round pick or C.) Both It doesn't matter which team it belongs to, they'll just have to specify second highest or third highest, since the highest was given to us. It's not a matter of trading a teams pick per se, it's more of trading their position in the third round if that makes sense...
  14. Benning on 1040 Post Sutter Trade

    Well if that's the way trades are done now... Maybe Dallas will trade a 129th overall (Benn) for a 3rd overall (Turris). With that "joke" aside, I agree with you that Sutter will be an upgrade, I just think we may have overpaid a bit with Clendenning, but time will tell how it works out. Without saying as much, they had expectations for Bonino. Remember the video that was posted by the canucks when management was discussing a RK deal? Benning had mentioned how Bonino is a guy that'll get us 20-25 goals and be an anchor on the 2nd power play unit. Bonino didn't reach that ceiling and the 2nd power play was awful. (Benning may have 'inflated' his thoughts to the rest of his management team just so he could get a deal done, considering at the time it was his newly acquired team to run and if Kesler didn't want to be here, then Benning wanted to him to GTFO ASAP). Additionally, for all we know Benning might have preferred to trade for Sutter with RK17, but was limited by the NTC/Pitt's offer knowing Van was handcuffed, but the experiment on Bonino was done and he was able to utilize him to get the piece he actually wanted. IMO, I think Benning has patience. Something that I think will be key to building a winner and something that is hard to have in this market.

    Couldn't agree more with not missing Bonino's lazy line changes.
