Troll vs Troll in a battle of epic proportions?


Actually, that is inaccurate.
Only 1 could be the troll, and that is whoever is wrong.
The other, is telling the truth.

I'm at UBC right now and Bobby Lu is not on the ice. The Nux have been on for about 30 minutes now. They just started a scrimmage. Blue vs Green. Goalie for Team Green is Schneider. Goalie for team Blue is a big dude wearing an NHLPA sweater, i;ve been told by one of the staff that its Dan Ellis? He didnt seem sure tho.

Almost everybody else is here except Lu. He was practicing yesterday.



**p.s a big media scrum is starting to form by the UBC dressing room. Its actually pretty hilarious as all of a sudden nobody but coaching staff is watching the scrimmage.

*pps, Zack Kassian looks huge on the ice and skates extremely well!! soft hands too

"ppps Cam Barker should have stayed in Europe.


Good to hear that about Kassian, and I really hope Gillis is being patient with this....the longer this drags on, the harder it's getting for me to imagine him gone. He's all class, and if he is traded before the end of this season, it better be for a fair price...

No, you gotta do better than that.
CURRENT pics or it didnt happen.
Anyone can grab a pic from yesterday.
Also, 2 diff media members I know and my buddy who lives at UBC said theres no one there.


call team 1040 they have a couple of reporters here they can confirm..

and im not sure how you want me to differentiate a picture from yesterday and today...they are dressed the same, and are practicing on the same ice!!

do u want me to take a picture of them while they are holding todays newspaper? kinda like proof of life sorta thing?

you dont even need a newspaper. just a timestamp. Hold generic piece of paper w todays date up infront of your phone, take the pic of them on the ice. Voila, validated. Even a Leafs fan could manage this task.

Brad Z says "no practice scheduled today...."


TROLL!!!!!


Z pbbly means no CLUB practice scheduled today. The CBA is expected to be ratified later today so AV could hold a practice. But players could still skate on their own as they have been for months.

Atleast this is how I see it.

still waiting for that VERY EASY request to be filled carl.

having some trouble getting out to UBC right away & scrounging up a Canucks practice jersey & helmet on short notice?

Awww hell, just go to twitter, grab 1 of the MANY photos the "swarm" of media you saw there surely woulda tweeted about this epic private practice that no one else seems to be seeing, show me the link to it & you will be validated.

I wouldn't go to so many lengths to prove I'm not lying. If ppl don't believe you it's up to them to prove that.

I could say a thousand things in a day where ppl respond by saying we don't believe you. If I worried about that my whole day would be spent providing proof for my statements.

If someone thinks Canucks aren't at UBC and none of media are there it's upto them to confirm that and provide proof.

Then you should be promptly banned.

well some teams are reportedly already signing players with official announcements coming tomorrow or later today. as for the no trade rule your right it is in effect still. However the point of keeping him out of practice is to keep him healthy to facilitate a trade.

So *IF* luongo is really not practicing and the rest of the team is one could infer that a trade is imminent.

I tend to believe Carl. Would surprise me that they wouldn't be practicing. Tomorrow training camp, they need to get in shape to start next Saturday. Would find it very strange if they weren't practicing today.

But I'm skeptical nonetheless as no one is tweeting about it in the media. If Luongo truly wasn't there, the media would be all over it.

So the guy who has been here since 2006, with no proof & is the ONLY PERSON ANYWHERE claiming this practice is going on is credible... but the person here since 2004, who texted 2 seperate media members, and a person who lives 3 blks from the rink & always goes to the practices out there, AND even gave Carl the chance to prove his claim with a simple pic (hes commenting on cdc, so he obv has access to a smartphone/ipad/laptop at "the rink: to make this happen in less than 3 minutes) must be lying?

Ok. Seems reasonable.
Also, no one suggested they were at home watching cartoons.
All that was stated is... they ARE NOT at UBC having a group practice in the last hour.

i would be shocked if the players weren't skating somewhere today. with 7 days till the start of the season there are no days off. I dont doubt that part.

I was shocked too. When I heard they werent I actually said "yeah right" took 2 diff people telling me they arent for me to believe it.
But hey, if you are convinced otherwise... feel free to call UBC arena (dont remember its actual name) and find out for sure. I KNOW the answer... so I dont need to... but go right ahead. Indulge your curiousity.

I wouldn't go to so many lengths to prove I'm not lying. If ppl don't believe you it's up to them to prove that.

See, problem is he said there was a "swarm" of media there.... yet the 2 members I asked said no, and theres no tweets about it, or updates on team 1040 about any skate (they only mentioned there being 1 the last several days about 10 times an hr).

Yeah, I agree with CanuckHound73. If TEAM1040 was there, wouldn't they tweet that Luongo is missing from practice? Or ANYONE on twitter for that matter?

At first I found it odd too...but after thinking about it, it made a bit more sense.

Not THAT strange when you realize starting Sunday they have a very packed schedule in a short time, this is probably their last day to get non-hockey things done. Usually they would have weeks to do some things that they now only have a day or two to do.

Ontop of that, they probably didnt have ice rented for today. Its not like they KNEW when training camps would be or even when the CBA would get done.

Also, he said there was a "swarm" of media there. Yet not a single tweet or reference to a practice on the radio yet. hell, only pics I can even find from local media today are from hosea Cheung or Scott Rintoul showing the nice weather we have today.

But, believe what you want.... I am sure that "swarm" of media will be filling our ears & eyes with stories & internviews from TODAYS practice in literally the next few minutes. yup, its surely going to happen.

even with the slowest internet connection in Vancouver, he should have had this done within 10 mins.
More realistically, 3 mins.
Its been 15+ minutes since I told him to get a pic.
