  1. Go Burr! man that guy can kill penalties.  

  2. I have a Powell St. Brewery Dive Bomb porter and a 2" thick steak waiting for me at home. I must go to them now, they're calling to me.

      you can do it cheap, i pick up growlers and we buy those full beef tenderloins from Costco, they seem expensive (~120 bucks) but when you do the numbers you can actually have a nice tenderloin steak for cheaper than going to McDonalds.

      I buy my steaks at Costco as well. Good quality for a decent price.

  3. Did Matthews win the 'who's the best generational player' debate, with McPouty's meh playoff  performance? Is Matthews the more complete player? 

    1. luckylager

      luckylager

      I'd like a larger sample size before I commit to anything, however, Matthews seems to have better control of his emotions. McD is probably so used to just "having his way" he was more easily rattled by professional, smothering, legit checkers. And it showed. He was forcing it and making "rookie" mistakes.

       

      I'd expect a lot of growth from him in that regard as he becomes more accustomed to getting owned; he was having a hard time doing the little thing right.

      I would take either for my team.

  4. Q For the legislature nerds: when do the MLAs have to officially sit post-election?

     

     

    Just wondering if anyone knows how long Clark has before she has to call the legislature together? I know a sitting gov't can cancel a sitting, but what are the rules right after an election? Just wondering if she was weeks or months.

      My bet is Weaver will try to get some quick wins right away, separate from joining with the NDP. E.g., get a deal with Clark on killing corp donations. 

    2. goalie13

      goalie13

      Agreed.  I think Weaver will be looking for some things from the Green platform in exchange for not triggering another election.

    3. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      he's got a very interesting window between now and the recount in two weeks to get some wins to his name, so at the very least I can see a deal for support of the throne speech for killing donations and maybe a study on site C.

  6. The Canucks should set up a contest for post number 4,000,000. That has to be a league fan base record.

      A lot were deleted as I used to have nearly 1000 posts and then while playing for a bit in Europe didn't log in for two seasons and voila, back down to about 100.   I am sure I am not alone in that.

  8. So.... Lucic is complaining about goalie interference.....

      Eichel peppered the German goalie with 10 shots on just his own, but the goalie was a brick wall today.  That and Team USA sucks again this year.

  11. Lack back as a waiver wire pick up next year? Tacos anyone? 

    1. ken kaniff

      Honestly would love to have Lack back. He was such a great guy 

  12. OK @J.R. I'm going to listen to your Green dude during the debate tonight 

    1. VanGnome

      VanGnome

      Why should he, or any other politician? I don't care how smooth (or not) talking my preferred candidate is, I care that they adequately, sincerely and honestly talk about the issues that matter to me.

       

      Christy Clark is way too disingenuous, and just comes off as smarmy.

      Horgan is just a giant blow horn, he even *looks* like a typical figure head/pawn (bought and paid for by the unions).

    2. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      @debluvscanucks :lol: yah he was pretty worked up. I think Horgan underestimated him a bit tho. 

    3. -DLC-

      -DLC-

      I didn't get to see much but he was SO intense.  To the point I couldn't listen to him.  As for the "why should he?".   Well you want people to listen...that's sort of the point.  It's not about being smooth, it's about being calm and in control.  He raised my bp.

  13. If Green lets the kids learn from their mistakes and brings more pushback to the team then I'm happy.

      stonecoldstevebernier

      I like Green's way of handling young players' mistakes. He'll scratch them, then put them in next game with regular minutes and let them respond. I can only hope Green follows a similar philosophy in the NHL. For WD it was a scratch, play them 5 minutes, bench them for the third period, scratch them again.

      if the team is healthy, their record will be better. if they get more scoring, they will do better. of course, if those things happen, that would have happened for willie too.

  16. Dear Mr. Benning, please offer Bo more than 2 years... 

    1. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      I just hate the idea leaving it on the table without using it. Oh well at least he didn't go to Toronto. 

    2. HerrDrFunk

      HerrDrFunk

      I imagine Bo will probably get serious term and make some bank with his new contract. I wouldn't be surprised if they skip the bride deal and just go straight to a Scheifele level contract.

    3. J-23

  17. So I'm on to "bargaining" in the 7 stages of Tryamkin.... 

    1. Ghostsof1915

      Ghostsof1915

      So they fire the coach that didn't give him ice time, and he then bolts with a lame excuse. Don't blame Benning. 

    2. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      @Ghostsof1915 Now that I've stopped swearing about it, the nagging thing that remains for me is why only 2 years? From a negotiation pov it seems like Jim left term on the table. Nik may have still said no, but at least we would have done all we could. 

       

      But, its all pirogies under the tank now, or whatever the Russian saying is.

  18. Sounds like Benning offered Nikita a 2 year extension, so now I'm just sad. This team.

      Watch us fall in the lottery. Probably 5th. Can't &^@#ing win. 

  19. I'm so po'd about how the Canucks handled Tryamkin I'm ready to believe @Alflives about ownership meddling. 

    1. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      @Green Building i understand that, but it makes no sense to extend Hutton mid-season and not this guy as well. I'll wait to hear what Benning says about this before making a decision but this is the kind of thing this team can't afford, you can't bleed young talent during a rebuild, particularly for nothing. If Benning comes back saying this was a surprise move then its hard for me to continue to support him, you have to be more in touch with your team. But lets wait for the presser. 

    2. Winter Soldier

      Winter Soldier

      I don't understand how those two points are related.

    3. Quantum

      Quantum

      We'll still have Tryamkin's rights because he's an RFA. Due to him bolting, I think by qualifying him we'll have his rights until 2022... so he if wants to return to the NHL, it'll have to be with the Canucks.

       

      This may be a blessing in disguise, though. The good news is that Tryamkin signed a 1 year deal, so he could come back at the tail end of next season like he did last year. That, and Tryamkin's departure (gulp), does pave a way for the Canucks to get Juolevi into the lineup without it being too crowded. It also means a guy like Evan McEney and/or Jordan Subban can legitmately earn a roster spot next year too. Hell, now Pedan may finally be in line to capture an extra d-man slot on the team next season too. Tryamkin's arrival did push Pedan down the depth chart.

       

      Tryamkin probably saw how crowded the Canucks d-core was and bulked at it. With Gudbranson's return next season, it meant that his best shot was being a Number 5 defenseman which probably (and did) not sit well with Tryamkin. That and it seems he was still unhappy with how he was treated last Fall. If anything, it shows that Tryamkin has a bit of a diva behavior so it might be good for him to mature for a year in the KHL before returning to get serious in the NHL.

       

      Either way, losing Tryamkin blows hard.

  20. Marchand having success challenges the assumptions of a just-world hypothesis.

      I'm loathe to give him such philosophical thought. At best he's a juxtaposition. 

  21. please god, can you make an alternative to 1040?

      Maybe its cultural. Guys like Ohlund didn't show much emotion either, nor do the twins. 

    2. Chip Kelly

      Chip Kelly

      Markstrom and guys like Landeskog are examples of un European Euros right now in the National League.They wear their emotions on their sleeves. No questioning that they have that intensity and competitive fire.

  22. No one should feel bad for Willie. He got paid handsomely for doing his dream job. He'll be fine.

    1. HerrDrFunk

      HerrDrFunk

      and Bob McKenzie seems to think he's a lock to take over in Dallas. Which would actually make sense as he led their AHL team to a championship the season before we hired him. 

    2. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      yup, and he'll probably be a better coach there because he go to cut his teeth here. We should be getting a pick out of Dallas :lol:

    3. Trebreh

      Trebreh

      I would be surprised if he lands another coaching job. And if he does, It'll probably wont last long if he continues being stubborn with his coaching decisions.
