  1. Lost my job and can't afford NHL.com. Anyone want to share for this season? I am in Europe.

  2. Would you change how you feel about a Canucks player knowing that they support Trump?

      It shouldn’t change your opinion, if it does, you are intolerant and not truly accepting of diversity

  4. Luongo made his choice. Lets leave the rafter space for someone who's heart is here. 

  5. How would you guys like the idea of the best players going to the all star game instead of having to choose a player from each team? You would see multiple players from each team more often but at least you'd have the best players there.

      From an overall viewership perspective, one player from every team makes the most business sense.  How many less viewers would watch because no one from their home team is in it? It doesn’t matter to me personally but as a business decision, it makes the most sense

  6.  Sunday night: Chicago HEALTHY scratching Seabrook ($6.875 million, four more years after this) and Smith ($3.259 million, one more year after this)

    $10.125 million, or 12.4% of Chicago's cap is sitting in the press box.

    Edit: Also, Ottawa has healthy scratched Bobby Ryan ($7,250 million for two more years after this) on Sunday afternoon.

  7. Sad sad day for Canada. I usually stay out of Politics but this is disgusting.

      Actually it’s more about when you look at the map, you clearly see, if you keep Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal happy, you win an election quite handedly.  Urban cities are consumers while the rest of Canada makes the money.  The consumers elect politicians who give them things that the rest of Canada earns.  Keep 3 areas happy, keep control, of everything else. 
       

      its also disgusting that people still support and rally behind immoral people.  Politics in general is disgusting and we support leaders who are intellectually and morally corrupt. Sad state of affairs.

  8. To everyone talking about Brashear: Move on with your life, he’s trying too. I can’t believe this became such a popular topic. I feel disappointed in a lot of people, especially the writers who wrote about this.

  11. Just heard Kypper was making 800k a yr.

     

    Had his gig for 21 yrs.

     

    I'm sorry, doling out that kinda coin to hear a knucklehead mangle sentences leaves me a whiter shade of pale.

     

    This is the "trickle down" economics of modern pro sport. Pretty hard to justify.

      Sad when he makes more as an announcer then he did as a player...  he sucked equally at both.

  13. I've never felt more confident in our teams chances come Sept 1st than I do this year.

     

    We've got Petey at a 12 million dollar discount for the next two seasons. 

     

    We've got Bo on arguably one of the best non-ELC contracts in the league  ... our goalies only cost 4.6 million and will be one of the best tandems in the league.

    Brock will soon be signed at a reasonable dollar... Edler already took a huge discount...

     

    New face in the organization will fight against the Luongo cap penalty and have it removed

     

    Our time is now. The cup will be ours in 2020 and/or 2021

     


    (Sept 2011 Honorable mention... everyone knew that team would dominate and they absolutely did by winning the Presidents Trophy in 2012... becoming the FIRST EVER back to back president trophy champs in the Salary Cap Era)

      I was more excited about 2010-2011 as we were the best team in the league

  17. I’m wondering, after moving out Sutter, Eriksson, Tanev etc., would it be possible to let Gaudette grow in Utica this year and trade for a more reliable 3C with 1-2 years left on his contract?

      Don’t worry, Sutter will be hurt by November anyways

      Brendon Tanev signed same cap hit for 2 extra years for less production all around.  Either this is a great signing for Vancouver or a terrible signing for Pittsburgh.  I think both.
