  1. 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.
  2. 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 a feeling we won’t be able to due to the worlds. I am hoping Russia passes on him.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Loving the game so far, but since when did they start playing that stupid soccer ole ole crap? Enough already.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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. :-)
  12. It’s somewhat unfortunate for Dr. Henry really. She overestimated the intelligence of millions of people in BC. By stating repeatedly that wearing a mask is an expectation, she didn’t realize those millions were waiting for her to say “wear a mask” for them to be relieved and finally put on their masks.
  13. Canuckster, you’ll get a lot more experienced responses than me, but just so you know, you can do it. I was a first timer this year and planted 5 seeds. All successful and 3 of 5 now harvested with more than I know what to do with already. Germinate a few days in spring, planted in solo cups then moved outside when they were ready. Nothing fancy on my end for soil or nutrients, water when needed. You can do tons with your soil or training of your plants, all up to you. I did little and had pretty good success. You have a lot of time to read up on it over the winter but in the end it can be as simple or as complicated as you want it. It’s a pretty fun and rewarding hobby
  14. The talk on jersey numbers for Gaudette, Schmidt and Tryamkin bothers me a little. As far as I know, AG has rights to it but it is part of the unwritten code that I think he will defer to Schmidt. Up to him though. For Tryamkin - sorry, but he bailed on the team and forfeited any rights to that number. As much as I want him to come back, I would lose all respect for him if he requested the number. I hope he just takes what he gets.
  15. Thanks for the advice @stawns and @luckylager . Much appreciated. That works out well since I cut my runty one down last week and it gives me time to practice this whole trimming thing on it before I have to tackle these monsters. Hope I get a good system going. Saw last night on the news why I couldn’t find any Mason jars in town. Lol. Figures. Went and bought a few snap/ clamp ones and will just have to make do with tons of mismatches.
  16. Been following this topic religiously being a first timer. Seeing a lot of mention of bud rot and am now starting to get anxious that maybe I should harvest soon. The pic below is my ripest one with the other 3 I would guess a week or two behind. All purple Kush. Any experts care to weigh in on whether it looks ready? I’ve looked at the trichs under magnification and to my amateur eye, they still seem mostly clear so I’m thinking it may be a little too soon. No sign of any rot so far. I think anyway.
  17. Ah gotcha. Thanks as always. Will get on that. Re the gender thing - yeah, I know, but my daughter always referred to them as “he” so it just kind of stuck. Lol
  18. Haha. Flushing won’t be a problem. I’ve never used any nutrients or fertilizers. Just water. And yeah that’s Forté on the right. He’s always been ahead of the rest. Lived up to his name. The one on the far left looks next. Runty. He overcame his earlier deficiencies. Milo, Shakira and Bob (daughter’s naming on those ones) will be picking up the rear.
  19. Thought I would update with my first grow. Will try and paste a pic but not sure if it will work. Got a lot of good advice from @luckylager so thanks for that! I threw up an ad hoc cover over them last week before the rain based on the advice that purple kush doesn’t like to get wet! They seem to be thriving well. And being my first time, I didn’t do any pruning or training so I just have Christmas trees. Lol. It’s been a lot of fun. My daughter and I named them in the solo cups so you’ll see I cut out those names and stapled to the fence :-). Looking forward to the harvest and getting the family involved. Has been a fun hobby to learn in these strange times, but man, the more I learn the more I realize how little I know. Now to read up on how and when to harvest...
  20. I was blown away by this, but not in the expected way I suppose. Maybe it’s just me, but if I am putting something in my body, I like to research it myself first. Whether it is addictive, side effects, long term use implications... I don’t know, some of the onus has to be on the individual as well. Too much of our society likes to point fingers and try to pass blame. Too easy to just say “well he told me it was ok”. No we are not doctors but come on.
  21. If this is true, I like the approach. It’s just JB playing hardball. And expediting Louie realizing the stark reality of what his future will be.
  22. Oh well. We all knew it was going to be close. Makar gets about 2/3 of the first place votes and Quinn gets 1/3. The funny part for me is Quinn’s 6 3rd place votes, meaning those 6 put Merz, Fox, Blackwood and kubalik ahead of him.
  23. I am much more petty than you apparently. I have never voted NDP but have to admit after the last few months and even last couple years, Horgan had swayed my vote. But doing this, he has stooped to the level of “the same as the rest” for me. I am totally disappointed and will not vote that way now. His calling an election reinforces my opinion that all political parties are pretty much the same. I will be voting now just to send a message, even if it means yet another election in a year. Not much, if anything will change. Even though I thought maybe they had. What a disappointment.
  24. Same boat. Hard not to root for/ like Bowness. Even the despicable Perry raised a couple notches for me when he grabbed the puck for him. Not terribly invested either way though.
