  3. But my opinion on the Gudbranson trade is too important to post in the trade thread. It needs it's own topic!

      Oh wait... No it's not.

  7. Prayers go out to all the people of Fort Mac. Canada stands with you.

  8. Picking 5th.... :(

      Roger Neilsons Towel

      Of course the year they change the draft lottery process it screws us. All the people quoting the odds of picking 5th. I was trying to stay positive. I'm pretty pissed off. We'll still get a good player, but most likely not the franchise changing piece we were hoping for...

  9. Since so many of you are too lazy to Google, Draft Lotto is 4pm on CBC. Now stop trying to use the post box like a search engine.

  10. Maaan... Benning is absolutely KILLING it right now!

      I'm sure there are more moves yet to come. This will be an exciting off season!

  11. Okay boys and girls, it's Draft Lottery Eve! I can't wait 'til we all get to open our present!

  12. Can't wait for the Draft Lottery on Saturday. Like a kid on Christmas!

      On the plus side they discovered new microbes that ate the iron in both the Bismarck and the Titanic. Only sad part is it's possible the Titanic will collapse on itself into rust in 2030.

      Pretty sure they built her in Belfast, & no one wanted to even speak of that for generations.

       

      Finally came to terms with it, & built a Titanic museum there, I read a few yrs back.

       

      Seems to have become the ultimate sporting-metaphor.

       

      Perhaps the best symbol for humanity's arrogance, in terms of hasty, unfettered industrialization.

      I hear ya. I used to only listen to country once and a while, but since I bought a pickup truck and moved to Mission my transformation to full blown country boy is complete. Now I just need to get a divorce and have my wife take my dog and I can start writing country songs for myself!

  18. I'm glad I learned about parallelograms in school instead of how to do taxes. It's really come in handy this parallelogram season.

    1. theminister

      theminister

      Other things you become a full fledged adult without being mandatorily taught in schools:

       

      -The law

      -Your rights

      -CPR/first aid

      -Nutrition

      -How money works

      -How to make/build a resume

      -How to budget

      -How to survive in your local environment for three days without help

      -Plant ID

       

      Honestly, schools don't teach the basics of life and falsely assume that will be taught by outside influences. They're mistaken, and IMHO the complete focus on education should be changed from creating workers to creating citizens.

    2. Roger Neilsons Towel

      Roger Neilsons Towel

      Very well said. Couldn't agree more.

    3. theminister

      theminister

      Thanks. 

       

      I think we still live in an antiquated mindset with regards to education, that your high school will be your only set for a large part of the population before you go get a job for life. That doesn't happen anymore. 

       

      Our current market in Canada has 80% of people pursuing secondary education at some point and often later in life, as well as multiple different times. People now are more likely to have 3-4 distinct career changed throughout life, and we have no idea what age this generation of school aged children will live to our retire at. The basic fundamentals have changed IMO. 

       

      Yes to literacy, basic maths, science and history. That should remain. But what we need to add is a contextual and applied approach to the execution in f that knowledge. 

       

      Literacy? Also read legal docs, resumes, the Charter, as well as Shakespeare. Maths? Also do taxes, budgets, and accounting. Science? Do local biology, nutrition, intense first aid, household chemistry. History? Make it living...it needs to be hands on. 

       

      And bs it should all be done every year and re-inforced. All other job skills can be learned after adulthood and chosen by the individual.

  19. I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather... Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

  21. Potential 2016-2017 Canucks Lines

     

    Sedin-Sedin-Hansen
    Baertschi-Horvat-Virtanen
    Burrows-Sutter-Rodin
    Etem-Granlund/Vey-Dorsett
    (Extras: Granlund or Vey, Gaunce)

     

    Hutton-Tanev
    Edler-Sbisa
    Hamhuis-Tryamkin
    (Extras: Pedan, Larsen)

     

    Miller
    Markstrom

     

    Opinions/Questions:
    -McCann to Utica where he can develop. 
    -Hamhuis only if he signs for hometown discount to mentor the kids. 
    -Still leaves us with too many players and some decisions to make. A good problem to have. 
    -Would love to trade Edler if he would waive.
    -Where would our Draft Pick slot in?
    -Trade Miller? Would he waive? Would there be interest?
    -Trade Burrows or keep him to mentor the kids? 

     

    What are your thoughts? 

  22. If the Canucks could pick in the Top 3 at the Draft, that would make me so happy.

      there would still be people complaining ....

  23. Based on my limited understanding of the proposed expansion draft rules, here is a list of the players I believe we would and should need to protect (If I have made an error with the rules, please correct me so I can update the list):

    Horvat (3rd year)

    Baertschi (3rd year)

    Sutter (NTC)

    Hansen (MNTC)

    Granlund (3rd year)

    Vey (has made improvements, asset worth protecting IMO)

    Etem
     

    Tanev

    Edler (NTC)

    Sbisa

     

    Markstrom

     

    The following players would NOT need to be protected because of their expansion draft ineligibility at proposed time of expansion draft, and under the proposed rules: 

    D.Sedin (NMC)

    H.Sedin (NMC)

    Virtanen (ELC)

    McCann (ELC)

    Hutton (ELC)

    Gaunce (ELC)

    Tryamkin (ELC)

    Pedan (ELC)

    Subban (ELC)

    Brisebois (ELC)

    Stewart (ELC)

    Cassels (ELC)

    Sautner (ELC)

    McEneny (ELC)

     

    Left Unprotected/ Eligible for Expansion Draft:

    Miller (not our goaltender of the future)

    Hamhuis (UFA - may not be resigned anyway)

    Burrows (has been great for this organization but potentially time to move on)

    Vrbata (UFA - won't be resigned)

    Dorsett (out of protected spots)

    Biega (out of protected spots)

    Grenier (out of protected spots)

    Kenins (out of protected spots)

    Fedun (out of protected spots)

    Zalewski (out of protected spots)

    Higgins

    Prust

    Bartkowski

    Weber

    Cannata

    Jones

    Bachman

    Friesen

    Labate (3rd year)

    Blomstrand (3rd year)

    Cederholm (3rd year)

     

    LEGEND:

    NTC = No Trade Clause (These are eligible for the expansion draft under the current proposed rules)

    MNTC = Modified No Trade Clause (eligible for expansion draft)

    NMC = No Movement Clause (NOT eligible for expansion draft and are therefore exempt)

    ELC = Entry Level Contract (NOT eligible for expansion draft and are therefore exempt)

    1. smithers joe

      smithers joe

      any one team can only lose 2 players...by expansion draft time many of the players on the list won't be under contract to the canucks...eg...higgins, burrows, prust, bartkowski and weber....probably miller too...

    2. smithers joe

      smithers joe

      in the past, if one of your players is picked, you can protect another one..i don't know if that is changed..their major young players that need protecting will be...if it doesn't happen for 3 years, then more young players will have to be protected....
