  1. Some of Benning's more "suspect" personnel decisions had big games today. Sutter, Beagle, Roussel were all stellar

      Teams record since Eriksson returned?  Team was awful on PK without him, he really does excel at that side of the game.. Not $6M good, but I'll give him the respect he deserves.  Thought he was dangerous a couple times last game, and was good tonight too.

      @-AJ- I thought Loui was good too. Myers takes dumb penalties, has the occasional bad turnover, but he adds bite that we sorely need on our roster imo

      all of those guys are working hard and paying the price for it. 

  2. Travis Yost (Hockey Analytics guy) made headlines today by putting Elias Pettersson as 3rd on his Hart Vote Ballot. What has ensued was a "battle" on twitter about who was the Canucks most valuable player this past year, Marky or Elias? All this talk has me personally flaberghasted as I think Quinn Hughes is without a doubt our MVP and best player.

      Weird choice IMO. Petey was fourth for me this year after Markstrom, Miller, and Hughes (in that order). Not to say he had a bad year, but we had three other outstanding players.

       

      In my mind, Markstrom should finish top 5 in Vezina voting this year.

      That is a tough vote, just like how I see the Cyclone Taylor voting going down (whether they have it officially or not).  Each of Miller/ Hughes/ Pete/ Marky bring a needed component but none can do it all without the others either.

      my vote is miller

      marky missed too many key games

      (not his fault, i agree)

      but miller played every game

       

      and had to adjust to a new team.. which he did seamlessly.. mostly because he played his game and others adjusted to him

      and i really really like ep.. .but miller did have to take so may face offs (which he did at an elite level) as petey is still lacking in that area

      ep40 needed him more then the reverse

  4. So Yoko Ono and Bryan Adams are both trending. Adams sent out a unprofessional tweet about Covid that isn't racist (yet people are assuming it is), and a large contingent of twitter are cancelling him. At the same damn time, people are praising Yoko Ono despite the fact that she used the N word in her music, was an adulter, and drove John Lennon into addiction. 

     

    Seriously? People are wild.

      @Squamfan you can criticize the practices of different cultures without it being necessarily racist.  People that are offended often conflate the two.

      @NewbieCanuckFan 

      From a young age John was a tortured insecure lost man who was manipulated by Yoko when he became famous

      Not long after they met, Yoko repeatedly used to stalk the gate outside John’s and Cynthia’s Kenwood estate, before eventually being invited in from the rain out of pity by Cynthia and her mother

      Just after Johns murder, Yoko sent Julian a cheque for $1 (which he framed)

       

       He since sued her and got a settlement (Most likely not to bad mouth Yoko to keep receiving)

      John Lennon said in his very last radio interview (just hours before he was shot and killed) that like most young men he was more involved with his career than with his child, and he said he regretted not spending enough time with Julian. He also said that he and Julian would have a relationship in the future but sadly they both were deprived of this.

       

      I never lived his life and would not judge him myself

      As far as him not being a nice person ?,

      You are talking about what John was like when he was a psychologically messed up 21 year old guy, not the pro-feminist, nurturing house husband and father he remarkably became and walked away from the drugs and the music industry to "Watching the Wheels"

       

      John was a man of peace...grown from a boy of violence...he grew and changed and he wanted to see the world do the same

      I think he brought a lot of joy to Millions of people , (just in his music  alone), far more than most men have (and continues too) than he ever hurt in his life

      How many people that judge him, can say they have reached that many people positively?

       

      No-one is a saint, in death or in life and should refrain from judging someone else, especially if they were not affected - it is not like he was a murderer, he was murdered and used his powerful influence for World Peace, Women being a pro feminist, before it was popular and Minority Rights

       

      I don’t believe John Lennon was some saint, some perfect role model, or the embodiment of peace and love. I believe he was a human with a good heart, but not without his flaws. In his words, he was a “violent man who [had] learned not to be violent”. He had the capacity to recognize and regret his flaws, and change for the better. He wasn’t a “bad” person, or a “good” person - nobody is. It’s far more nuanced than that. His path of change does not erase his violent past with his father etc, but it is still commendable. In my eyes, his reflection on his younger self’s behavior, along with his progress away from that redeems his character. I believe that if he wasn’t killed, he would have continued to prove himself to be a better person.

       

      You might want to see where someone came from, how he rallied for causes, how he changed his life from what he knew as only a child to who he was as he died

       

      With all that John went through and the pressures and how he transformed himself

      He changed for the better, 

      Why slander his name

      I for one am glad there was a John Lennon

       

       

      .

       

      That is my opinion on speaking ill of this dead man,

      Keep yours if you will

  8. Am I the only one that doesn't see the issue with a Barrie trade? If it is Stetcher plus a pick, it is still a net positive from a talent perspective for a run this spring. It would be rental. Stetch isn't coming back either way.

      2 different players. Each bring something totally different.

      Barrie seems a bit redundant with Hughes....

  9. Just coming to grips with the massive figures that Southern California has lost the last 12 months. First Nipsey Hussle, and now Kobe Bryant. Those two inspired millions. Its a sad world

      Alflives

      Do you mean Nipsey Russell, the comedian?

      Kobe did some bad stuff, but he sure has a lot of people who love him too.  It’s like he’s the OJ Simpson of this generation.  Loved and almost worshipped, but had another side to him that few really knew about.  

  10. Imagine meeting a girl so pretty that your heart skips a beat every time you even think of her. Imagine her having a beautiful sense of compassion, caring, and understanding. Sounds wonderful right? Now imagine her looking into your eyes genuinely, drawing you in, then she flips a switch and begins playing you like a fiddle.

      Me too, what happened to having an intellectual conversation and trying figuring out the best solution to a problem?  It seems like whenever someone is faced with an opposing opinion someone's default response is either "you're cancelled" or "OK Boomer".  Like c'mon man, don't you have some actual opinions, or some sort of substance to add to this issue/conversation?  People need to start becoming more critical and freethinkers then trying to fit in with the popular opinion.  

  16. I have made it a priority the last year to make sure I let a lot of my good friends (both guys and girls) know that I love them. I am a straight male and a large demographic of my friends come from a group that aren't typically receptive to that sort of affection from a male friend. 

     

    At first, many thought it was strange, but the more I said it, the more they became receptive too it. The more they became open with their feelings with me. Today, my a good friend of mine couldn't make a phone call for a minor reason. Not a big deal, its life. But he ended up saying how much he appreciates me as a friend and that he loved me.

     

    Honestly idk why I made this post, but him saying that made my night. I recommend trying it out. It could change relationships.

      Good on you, for taking the lead with something so basic but often not done until it's too late.  It's a wonderful thing you've started.

      It really shows how, on a larger scale, that stuff spreads.  That, by being kind and sharing love that others are inclined to follow.  Rather than all the negative stuff we tend to absorb on a daily basis.

       

      I love this post.  I have learned to do the same with family ... having both parents with cancer at the same time taught me not to take anything for granted.  

       

      Haha, along those lines my ex is very "straight"...uncomfortably so.  So the first time our daughter's b/f reached in to give him a hug it was sort of a "what are you doing, man??!" moment.  Now they hug every time we're all leaving an event.

      Reading this is a great way to start the day, thank you.

      i have love ones that i wish now that i had said i love you more often when they were alive. it can be tough. telling my son and grandson i love them, when they got older felt awkward and they seemed a little uncomfortable with it. i never say that to friends but if you and them feel comfortable, great.

  17. Just floating this out there because I have seen a lot of people discussing which goaltender we should protect in the expansion draft. Why not both? Offer a pick and an asset (maybe Kole Lind?) in order to keep Marky and Demmer. Just my view on things

      you are wrong wellwood

      that only applies to restricted free agents

      how can nucks get credit in expansion for a player they have no control over

      an ufa is a player they have no control over

      go review the rules

    3. Where's Wellwood

      @coastal.view https://www.espn.com/blog/nhl/post/_/id/43125/rumblings-las-vegas-will-get-a-head-start-on-free-agency

       

      It says, "Vegas organization will have a 48-hour window ahead of the expansion draft in June to speak with and sign any pending unrestricted or restricted free agents whom the 30 teams left unprotected for the expansion draft." "If any of the 30 teams loses a free agent to Vegas during this 48-hour window, it no longer can lose anyone in the expansion draft. In other words, that free agent lost counts as the one player lost in the expansion draft."

       

      As proof Vegas took Deryk Engelland from Calgary in their expansion draft. He was a pending UFA that summer. https://www.capfriendly.com/players/deryk-engelland Calgary didn't lose anyone else. 

       

      Seattle will have the same rules as Vegas.

      i am wrong

      not sure though why a team gets credit for a player it has no control over

      thanks for the correction

       

      but i believe an unsigned markstrom

      does not count as a nuck goalie exposure for expansion purposes

      they still have to expose a goalie

      so if seattle does not sign an ufa markstrom

      who would the nucks expose for that draft?

  18. I loved every moment of last night. But the thing that stood out for me was Todd Bertuzzi coming back. As a kid growing up, he was my favourite player. Its a shame how he is viewed in the hockey world (outside of Vancouver). A simple search on twitter will see people cursing him and the team out. My personal favourite is this one

     

     

    What a goof. Like honestly.

     

    Steve Moore got what he had coming to him.

     

    I love you Bert.

      Bert got the biggest cheer of any player there last night. The standing O could have gone longer had they not cut it off. Gave me goosebumps honestly. So glad fans gave Bert a lot of love given what he went through here. 

  19. If Baer gets cut, I am going to be HEATED. 100% earned a spot. He doesn't deserve this. Get that bum Goldobin out of here. Baer stays.

      Cut the cord completely.  Just say goodbye, and move on.  It’s going to be super hard, and totally heartbreaking, but it’s for the best.  

      Hangout with your friends and family.  Cry on their shoulders if you need to.  But move on.  Your friends and family are supper important to your healing.  

      You're a great person, and you are amazing.  Say that to yourself every time you see your face in the mirror.

      Its tough for me because like there wasn't even a problem in our relationship. Its just the circumstances surrounding it that is resulting in our separation. She just really needs someone who is in Vancouver rn due to some health issues that she is going through. I have no ill will towards her, because the heart needs and wants it wants. Maybe one day in the future we will be in a position where it makes sense.

      Really though the same thing could have happened to Sinclair. It was a well taken PK - it was headed for the side netting which is exactly where you want to put it. The Swedish goalie made a great save.

      @naslund.is.king

      meh. The women's team has a ton of talent and should be a force for years to come. They brought a young team to the tournament. 

       

      The mens team has a legitimate chance to qualify for the World Cup this cycle. For anyone in CONCACAF not named Mexico, that is as much as you can hope for. Guys like Davies, David, Atiba Hutchinson, Milan Borjan and Arfield are as good as you get in terms of quality in the region (mexico being the exception).

    4. Alflives

      Alflives

      I agree with @ReggieBush on this one.  Sinclair is the leader of the team.  All the other players gain confidence and strength from her presence.  She’s on the field.  There is no conversation.  She walks over, picks up the ball, places it on the spit, and shoots it into the back of the net.  Those other players must have been shocked at Sinclair’s lack of leadership in this circumstance.

      I bet our coach was equally shocked that his leader and star player didn’t grab the ball and go take the penalty.  I doubt it even crosses a coach’s mind that their star would defer like that.
