  1. I’m responding to this post but really it is in response to all the posts with this narrative. I think what many with this thought process truly fail to comprehend is, try telling a group of 20 or so professionals to just “wait one more year” in a career that spans 5-10 years. Pretty sure I wouldn’t want to wait and waste a year as a player. All else aside, we are a much better team than we were 2 hours ago. I think the players will appreciate that. I like this house cleaning trade a lot and am stoked already. And who knows what else is going to transpire. Things are looking great
  2. “Fraser Blue”? I have a feeling these designers don’t cross the Port Mann much. “Mocha Mavericks” would fit a little better. In any case, being in the Wack I am excited to get out to many of their games this year. Love this relocation.
  3. Anyone know if Mcdavid and Draisaitl are heading to Latvia tomorrow? Just flicked by the Canada Germany game and not sure if rosters are locked now. I’ve never had a lot of interest in this tournament but sure looks like we could use some help.
  4. My money is on DOPS coming up with a new term. I am waiting for “The Shinning”. Even a props to the Simpsons with that one.
  5. I will be livid if Zack gets a game so Nurse is spared further humiliation on Saturday. But I won’t be surprised.
  6. Good grief. That has got to be embarrassing/ humiliating for nurse. K ew he was in trouble and bailed. Ugh.
  7. Yep. Should be a great third. Easy money is on Zack. Nurse has horrible fighting mechanics. And his bow legs drop him down 2 inches as well. Should be entertaining watching his face cave in.
  8. I’m really starting to get an unhealthy hatred of McDavid. Nothing to do with how good he is. Just how he plays dirty and gets away with it. And knows no one will really challenge him because of who he is. And refs let it happen. I’m not religious but am praying he gets several punches to the face by one of our guys. I will buy that players jersey.
  9. Good question. I’m hoping Miller explodes on him later. He’s about our only player that has some meanness in him. Need more like that. And yes, McD still needs a face punch. Please Miller.
  10. I have never realized what a punchable face McDavid has. With all his crap, whining and cheap shots, I am praying for a Canuck to help me out here. I’ll say it here, if Macewan punches him I am buying his jersey.
  11. This is one of the best posts I have read recently. Sonofa… I am still chuckling about it. Made my day.
  12. Same boat. Unlike others mine was pretty smooth. Registered April 6, got my text this morning (8:20) that I could book. Went online and there were tons of spots available today. Got it at 12:15. Pfizer. I’m 53.
  13. As great as McD is, I am extremely tired of watching how much $&!# he gets away with. Sure wish we had someone that would step into him.
  14. Who’s the resident meme generator that could creat one - objects in mirror type thing with Bo, Brock and QH Ccoming at you. Lol. Here we come Habs.
  15. Lots of good reasons to sign him if we can. Other than what’s already been stated: Anchoring - sign him, the gesture gives him an NHL paycheque and is a solid move to anchor him with the org Planning - in this cap world there are a ton of things to weigh. Seeing how he looks and may fit in the group will play a huge part in what we do in the offseason for trades, signings. Gotta know what we have before we commit for the future. - Fan engagement/ excitement. We all want to see him. We pay the bills. Nothing like being excited for the next season. That said I have
  16. Jesus Nucks. All I can say is I can relate. And I know the distraction part. As a huge Canucks fan and eternal optimist what I can say that isn’t deep, but something that maybe brings something to you and your mom - we are 10 points back on the oilers. We play them 5 more times. There is always hope. There is always something to look forward to. There is always something more meaningful. Live for the day. All the best to you.
  17. It’s the Oilers that I’ve been eyeing in the standings. Overachieving and winning with one player. And we play them 5 more times Fate is definitely in our own hands. I still believe. Especially with some key players coming back.
  18. Watching the Canucks-Hawks 2011 Game 7 right now. Have to say it looks so strange to see fans right now. Lol. Sure will be nice to get that atmosphere back again. For Fans and players I’m sure. In any case, good pre-game time killer for me.
  19. Yep. And, going on IR in this case is retroactive and is a paper exercise/ requirement. Has to be on for a minimum of 7 days. You wouldn’t want to put him on Day 1 in case he was ready to return Day 5 because he wouldn’t t be able to. Happens all the time. Sure will be nice to get him back though. Hopefully Motte is in soon. Really miss his passion, energy and hitting.
  20. Loving the game so far, but since when did they start playing that stupid soccer ole ole crap? Enough already.
  21. I do but am very new to the game. I have 3 accounts there - a questwealth RRSP, a margin account and a TFSA. I am getting a pretty big merger payout in USD so needed the margin account as my holding area to convert funds with norberts, then to transfer to my limits to the TFSA and RRSP accounts. Will be a couple months yet so just trying to soak up some of the excellent info in this thread in the meantime. Looking forward to (hopefully) watching it grow. Can’t say too much about the platform yet. The mobile site/ app can be a little slow but I really have nothing to compare it to.
  22. So strange seeing Tanev in those colors. Poor guy - those uni’s are just hideous. Can’t help but think of McDonalds fries every time I have to see them.
  23. Going crazy ... I hear ya. I’m already there and unfortunately only had enough for a one way ticket... Can’t wait for some hockey again and am counting down the days until the Juniors. Sure hope they can pull it off with no major issues.
  24. I’m sure everyone is partial to either where they live or where they’re from. Me, I love mountains, rivers and forests. But having the option to easily go to the city, the interior, the okanagan or the USA. So definitely not the north or the island. Loved Kits when I lived there, but that was in my younger days when I enjoyed the night life. :-)
