  1. its funny how far apart most of CDC and the hockey media are on the Guddy extension. My bet is behind the scenes the Leafs wish that they hadn't tried to lowball Jim.

      Scuz Affair? My goodness, really? Sure it wasn't a pristine club full of lights and TVs, but when you can rub shoulders with Trent Reznor, Chris Cornell, and the like in the 90s without pretense and enjoy some drinks and combustibles, it's legendary, Kneel.

      Hahaha I'm quoting friends who called it that. It used to be a gay establishment then the last time I was there-there was a mosh pit.

      Yeah. The last time I was there they played Tool, NIN, Rage Against the Machine, Soundgarden, Depeche Mode, the Cure, New Order, and many more songs well into the night.

       

      I defy a club in Vancouver's generic downtown core to boast that kind of breadth of music now.

       

      Another great thing about Luv-A Fair was that it was a place where anyone was welcome, and everyone felt welcome.

  2. symbolism is amazing. We can be shown videos of improper shootings and it comes and goes in the news cycle as if it was fiction. But someone drops a knee and the world goes apesh!t.

      @kanucks25 this has nothing to do with race, or white males.  It has everything to do with the a very small percentage of the population being offended by just about everything, and having their insignificant opinions multiplied by the absurd powers of social media.

  4. I said it at the TDL... ANA should have traded for Miller.

      @SabreFan1 - show me any goalie who'd do better vs CHI that year, and with the D falling apart in front of them? Miller's given a pretty unfair rap on that serious imo. They did win the 1st 2 games.... anyway my point was for how cheap they could have got Miller, it was dumb not to get him and at least have the option of not relying on Bernier, who choked pretty hard in the 1st period last night. I'd put Miller in over him based on experience and playing well with a much inferior D group to ANA. 

    3. SabreFan1

      SabreFan1

      I didn't care either way who won that series so I didn't even watch a few of the games including the final one, but it pretty much goes without saying that just by virtue of letting that many goals in, Bernier choked.

       

      My experience with Miller watching him every year for the last 15 years is that, with the exception of his peak couple of years much earlier in his career, he's very much a "what you see is what you get" type of player.  His play doesn't elevate suddenly when he gets into the playoffs like it does with other players in the league.

       

      He never clicked with St. Louis that year.  He played poorly in the regular season and that continued straight into the playoffs where he actually got slightly worse.  It was an unholy match made in Hockey Hell.

       

      Would Miller have played well in Anaheim during the regular season and carried the Ducks into the Cup finals come playoff time this year?  Who knows?  Anaheim didn't want to take that chance or they would have traded for a goalie before the TDL.

      @SabreFan1 I'd say asking STL for any combination of Thompson, Thomas, Kyrou, or Kostin in return for Kane with salary retained would be fair. 

    3. PhillipBlunt
    4. SabreFan1

      SabreFan1

      @TheHitman They might actually go for a trade if they think Kane could put them over the top.  The Blues have been knocking on the door in the playoffs for years now.  They just haven't been able to get over the hump.  Kane's aggressiveness would do a lot for them.

      My thing is I hate smoke, period.  I smoked (heavily) for awhile but just hate any kind of smoke as it's an irritant to me.  And the smell of weed is putrid. 

      I AM fully on board with exploring the medical properties should I ever need to.  It's much more natural than the chemicals they pump at us through the pharm industry.  I steer clear of them, so would be inclined to go that route.   

      We partied, hard, when I was young and so I'm trying to make up to my body for all that abuse early on. 

  7. Do you think that am I a paid poster? I was accused today of being a paid poster, a lackey for the corporate interests of the Canucks. What say you CDC?

      I'm not surprised or upset.  Somebody asked me the other day to rank the teams and I ranked Team USA behind both Canada and Sweden.

       

      Gold medal teams don't lose to Slovakia.  That shows a shortage of championship character and leadership.

      I hear what you're saying @Quantum but if you're going to give someone an ongoing honour like that it needs to be about more than the games. Also, holy crap did the Canucks org do a good job on the Sedin night.

      Crabcakes

      So you're suggesting giving up 3 assets for a centre who will fill a top 6 hole for 2 or 3 years until Pettersson is ready?  I just don't see that happening in a rebuilding team.  

      Benning added centres Gagner and Burmistrov this past off season.  There is also Sutter and Granlund who may fill the role.  Granted, none of these players are locks to fill a top 6 role.

      Green has been playing Sutter a lot in a shut down / match up role and they are getting a lot of minutes.  Then there is always free agency if they don't think they have the right piece when Sedin retires.

      If he's waived, it's because a younger player earned his spot.  I'd be shocked if he couldn't get at least a late pick back if we retained a little salary though.

    3. -AJ-

      -AJ-

      Depends on the situation. If he got waived because he was miserable during the pre-season, I wouldn't mind it too much. If I felt he showed some promise of a better year but was still waived and then claimed, I would be pretty miffed about it.

      @WarhippyThat's why I said 2nd round pick and a decent prospect instead of a 1st round pick or a blue-chip prospect.

       

      Since the Canucks have a Top 3-5 prospect pool now they can afford to part with a "B" level young forward and a 2nd round pick in order to free up 6 million in cap space to bring in a new top free agent to replace Eriksson.

      why does he need to "weave"? he creates space by forcing the d back when he carries the puck in, and he's a big body that has to be covered. I don't think you're giving Jakes current size and speed enough credit. Anyway just my 2 cents :P Green hasn't texted me yet for my opinion. 

    3. canuckistani

      canuckistani

      every player who creates space and spends extensive time in the offensive zone has to weave to create space. Its like virtanen is an interceptor but not a air superiority fighter- not yet- and we need air superiority fighters to spend extensive time in the enemy territory.

      Canucks should absolutely be taking Glass even if Gaudette is everything we could hope for. Strength down the middle and defense is what wins Stanley cups. I cannot wait until we can get rid of "big balls Sutter" as one of our centres. A top 3 of Horvat Glass and Gaudette could be a great trio.

      The obvious answer for why they get coverage is because they get ratings. The more interesting question is how they get those ratings. You don't have to be good or even popular to drive ratings but you have to be something that people care about. I think the hatred for the Leafs actually drives ratings for the networks. In response we should treat them with indifference. Now how do I convince people to stop hate-watching the Leafs.

      i did not intend my post to suggest they should be thrown to the wolves now

      just that the question is not completely offside but relatively fair

       

      S'all Good Man appears to be expressing a valid concern as well

      that these kids should not be thrown to the wolves before they have gained some more maturity

      expecting as kid of 18 or so to respond now to the pressures of playoff hockey is a bit ludicrous

      perhaps in 4 or 5 years, with better preparation, they will develop to be able to manage those expectations
