In Topic: What was most difficult about last season?

14 July 2014 - 03:13 PM

The most difficult thing about last season was watching a game from beginning to end.... 

 

I was not at all surprised by the Torts fiasco from beginning to end, although I hoped to be proven wrong and he did seem to say all the right things for the first half of the season (I wasn't impressed by their play mind you, even in the first half).  I feel much better about this season, this coach and management team than I did last year. 


In Topic: Drafting Best Player Available vs Team Need

No you never draft BPA, you draft for team need.
If you go to the grocery store and your wife puts on the list to get bananas,apples and grapes but instead you buy a rake a hose and a hat then your wife will tell at you and your an idiot. You don't need then so why buy them.

Draft for team need

 

Or your wife sends you to the store for Milk and Eggs, but when you get there you see they only have 3 snow shovels left and aren't getting any more until next season...   So you spend your money buying the shovels at regular price, then sell the shovels to your neighbors at twice the store price.  Always take the item with the most VALUE (or BPA), because if it has value you can get what you need in return via trade...  But if you get the milk and eggs, that is all you will get...

Recchi a stud???

He rode Marios coat tails most of his career. Away from Pitt he was average at best

And he's a Dick

 

He did not ride coat tails!!    I thought so also, until he played in Montreal and Philly and showed he was a top line forward on any team in the league.  His stats don't lie...  IMO HOF...  That said, I hated him because of the 2011 finals too and some of the comments he made that year...  to be fair, he was helping his team win, which they did...  Might have been nice if he was on our side though.  Time heals old wounds and nice to see he is still a Canucks fan. 


In Topic: [Speculation] Kesler to remain a Canuck

:picard:



As for Kes, give him his damn winger already!!!! : @
 

 

That's what they said about Iggy in Calgary for years before hitting the rebuild button....   "just get him a center and were good..."   uhhh, no, no your not Flames fan....   and now we can say that about ourselves...   If Kes wants out and we get a good return do it... if he wants to stay for the long haul, keep him, he is a great player and can carry his line on his shoulders.


In Topic: Draft Virtanen!

I live in Calgary, albeit don't watch the Hitmen much...  But the guys here that do watch them all rave about him.  They say his numbers do not show what a special player he is.  I would be quite happy to get this guy.  I agree with everyone who says he has a lot of the things you can't teach, which are coincidentally things are team will need moving forward with our rebuild.  (yep, I used the R word.)
