My Mom was a spelling teacher, and she taught me to punctuate my sentances??? :lol:

Funny thing, I used to ignore her to talk about hockey too...


Did she not teach you how to spell as well? :P ;)

Niewendyk wasn't aging, he wasn't even halfway into his career and Jarome was still a prospect who hadn't played in the NHL when that trade happened. And the other thing is that Niewendyk was a holdout on the Flames so they had to trade him.


You're right, Niewendyk had a lot of good years left in him. I think both sides are happy with the trade. CGY got Iggy, DAL got a cup.

What I truly do not understand about this trade, considering where this team is in it's current arc, is why the heck ANY player would want out. It has to be about as close to it gets to winning a cup being on one of the leagues top contending teams... And you want out? You can sign anywhere you want after you win a cup... I just cannot get over Cody's mindset.

But hey, maybe there was more to it than just plain icetime and ego, maybe he just hated the org.
Go Canucks Go!

Iginla does not want to come here.
heard it directly from his mouth when i asked him,
his first choice is NYR.
would love to have him but best for Jerome to finish out in NY in a huge market.
a total class act and a really good guy.
best of luck Iggy

I haven't been a supporter of the Canucks for long. Mainly because firstly I know nothing about NHL and secondly ESPN America only started showing NHL 3 years ago.

First of all its Jarome, and I highly doubt you asked him to be a member of the Canucks.

Probably ego's?

AV was fairly well known to have ripped CoHo his first training camp; then it turned out he actually had the back problem and AV had egg on his face. CoHo said publicly that there relationship was fine. But it sounds like... his ego never recovered.

In coaching class they taught us that you try and catch people doing something right, it reinforces good behaviour. As a coach; a deposit in the emotional bank account. Correct someone doing something wrong, its a withdrawal unless you have enough deposits to earn a guys trust. Try and correct someone when your wrong, and you loose your player!

Big talk from a guy sitting behind his PC.

And what argument do you have to my response exactly? "I rest my case" isn't the only thing I said, and with you being captivated by that remark shows your just another one of those mindless douches on CDC that like bashing ppl's threads and opinions. I can tell why all of Canada mocks Canucks fans. Too bad there are a few that are actually die-hard fans mixed among feeble-minded people like you that can't acknowledge one's opinion. That's why Vancity doesn't deserve a cup. And yea I do "Rest My Case" and you don't need to fire me. I wouldn't spend my time defending a lowlife like you anyways.


He's right, saying "I rest my case..." is pretty douche especially after an argument like yours. So because of one man, or women, saying that he didn't like ONE thing you said means that the ENTIRE city of Vancouver doesn't deserve a cup? Really? Cause that isnt fallacious... Then you call him and "lowlife" and a "douche" and somehow you think that isn't an immature lowlife thing to do? If you areally are a die hard fan with a real opinion you shouldnt soil it with acting like an immature brat that got his feelings hurt. Grow up man.
