  1. what? I can barely piece together your elementary (or whisky-soaked) grammar. The only "fans" that call him a "whimpy crybaby" are you and maybe Ron Mexico. (come on, which one of you is clutch?) Lets see this last season Alex was 4th in goals 6th in points tied for second in SH goals 4th in GWG Not to mention his PK work, and all the offense he brings just creating space for the twins. One day, like all NHL players, he will retire or even be traded and you and Ron can get a room and celebrate together in whatever way turns your crank. Until then, you look like a complete fool. Th

  2. Reblogged from: https://narwhalhockey.wordpress.com Pancakes never hurt anyone, except Dustin Penner. It all started three years ago. A delicious stack of pancakes was made by Penners then wife, Jessica. Dustin couldn’t wait to devour them (the pancakes, you knew that). He quickly hunched over to eat them and felt something go in his back, mid chew. He corrected his posture as a cascade of butter and syrup slowly ran down his face, he knew that he was hurt. Dustin went to the LA Kings trainer to see if he could fix what was wrong with his back, the trainer was unable to do anything and sen

  4. Lol, I've gotta say - that's pretty funny. I was interacting with him (her?) over the fact that i had destroyed her online. He went back to said posts too... FD/hodor can't stop returning under many dupes and can't stop herself from getting banned.

  5. This makes sense for the funniest reason. One of his status's was "Deb is love, deb is life" when they had a feud going. I remember that so well lol. RIP Horvat 2.0, you were unique. A trend setter.

  6. I know allot of people are going to scorch me for this but I fail to see the reason why nobody questions his ability to play in the nhl. Every game i watch with him in the lineup(all of them) I find myself screaming at the tv because of the stupid stuff the guy does. Personally i'd rather have any of the guys that are fighting for a spot on the team rather than burrows. Everyone's #1 reason they like this guy from what I read on this forum "He's great on the pk. Who cares! Anyone can do this thats fighting for a spot. He can't score and i'm tired of kesler carrying this guy on his back night a

  9. ManU are still missing a quality centreback and depth at forward. In my opinion they should go all in for Soldado, Adebayor, Kaboul, and Chiriches.

  13. Rather move Higgins first. I don't think Hansen gets moved until deadline of his last year of current contract. Too fast, too good at both ends, good cap hit...there's really no reason to move him...yet.

  17. So...if Vrbata and Weber go - then Burrows is next in your book?

  18. Burrows hasn't been Mr. Clutch since he scored in OT vs. the Bruins in the 2011 SCF. His best days are in the rear-view mirror. But the one thing you can't deny Burrows is that, at the very least, he showed up for the three games that he dressed. Other schmoes like Matthias and Vrbata didn't (4-5 good shifts each where they actually produced something wasn't nearly enough, IMO)...and they played like they were scared. Same with Weber. Before JB cuts bait with rest of the stale core (who's left? Sedin, Sedin, Burrows, Higgins, Hamhuis and Edler?), I'd rather see Vrbata and Weber be tur

  19. Well... "Mr. Clutch" played only 3 of the 6 playoff game against the Flamez this year and had ZERO goals and 2 assists. One of the few remaining from the "stale" old core....

  20. Burrows had a nice bounce back season in 2014-15, but he's not the same player he was back in 2010-2011. He's still one of the best PKers in the league, plays with heart, is decent defensively, but he's lost that split second quickness that he used to have (and that's only because of father time). I realize this is an unpopular thing to say, but if the Canucks can get a second round draft pick for Burrows, I'd be all for it. Burrows was worth $4.5M AAV when he was in his prime (2008 to 2012)...today, he's worth $2.5M AAV. He's earning lots of back pay right now.

  21. Alex Burrows has earned his cap hit with the Canucks. He played a 4 year contract that paid him a total of 8 million dollars. In that time period he was putting up 25+ goal seasons. He's still a very effective player and is ALWAYS a great for with the twins and can slot into any line at anytime. He's a good 200 foot player. Go Burrows. That guy is a Canuck!

  23. Sadly it`s true. That should have been enough to close out that game. Unfortunately we all remember what came next... What could have been that season if we had won game 6 and closed Chicago out at home.

  27. Appreciate your post. But before someone (not referring to you Alex) accuses me of bashing Benning and derailing the Brisebois thread, I shall preface my response by saying I'm a fan of JB (and think he's good for the Canucks) and that I like the Brisebois pick. Brisebois seems to possess the tangible and intangible attributes of a quality player and person. I agree that picking players at the draft is a consensus decision, with the GM ultimately making the call. However, Benning appeared to be highly regarded while he was with the Bruins for his talent evaluation, so I will go as far

  28. Yeah, 'coz that's exactly what's being said. A little bit of reading comprehension will do you wonders in life. And yes. Let's keep this a Brisebois thread, there champ.

  29. You will get no quarrel from me...you're right in that Chiarelli had the final say, but it seemed to me that given the amount of time Benning was shown as part of the Neely-Chiarelli-Benning triad during the 2011 SCF, you gotta think that Benning had a lot of influence (and I am going to bet that Chiarelli deferred to Benning in areas that Benning had more knowledge and expertise than he, given that that's how most executive/management relations work in most enterprises). I'm sure Chiarelli and Neely set the vision and definition of players they wanted and it was Benning and his staff that we

  30. While I agree with what you've said, I think what people also fail to see is on the other side. People like to act or seem like Benning was the GM of the Bruins. He was a talent evaluator working for Chiarelli. Chiarelli was still the one calling the shots and making the final decisions. Benning comes to him with guys he likes, and Chiarelli is the one that ultimately chooses who he is going to draft, and especially who he's going to trade. ie) Tyler Seguin. Still, based on the fact that the entire league sees Benning as a great scout, I trust that he is. Now he is the head GM, so he does

  35. Obviously he was banned before, he is talking about someone who hasn't been on these forums in years, yet he joined a couple of months ago so yes I do know what I'm talking about. Also calling you virts dupe is a joke that has been running in Mafia since he started playing the game so, so you can't fail to get the full meaning of it I will spell it you for you: I T W A S A J O K E.

  36. Yah dig up some of the old threads with him in it, please find where I was "bested" by his "intellect". With your 20 posts and the fact that you signed up in May of this year, its amazing the insight you have on wetcoaster considering he was banned years before you even joined CDC. His life story was that he was apparently some top lawyer at some major law firm (doing apparently major law work) Yet somehow had all the time in the world to, as you put it, hoist the denizens of CDC in their own petard for 8 or 9 hours a day. The BS spewing from that guy reeks of nothing more than a con ma

  37. That is just what I was thinking. I think he looks well able to handle the NHL and I love how he takes "clearing the crease" personally. He has a lot of physical upside and a 2nd line partnership with a beefed up Subban might be awsome

  38. The Burrows contract is an excellent contract signed at the time and with only one year left on it at $3,000,000.00, is a minor risk. Burrows will be 35 by the time his contract ends and will either hit the UFA market for another great paycheck and/ or a chance to have kick at the Cup, or stay with the Canucks at a price that makes perfect sense for both sides, at a position that also makes sense. However, Burrows is a double edged sword. Since Burrows is an absolute workhorse, he will always automatically displace whoever plays with the Sedins. This season, Vrbata who signed with the Ca
