  1. Merry Christmas, you hosers.

     

     

     

     

  2. the north shore mountains look incredible today. Perfect day, no rain in the city, snow on the mountains.

      About 1997? We had a snowfall in November. I was working for a cell phone company on the North Shore.

      So I was driving over the Lions Gate Bridge. And snow was starting to fall. It was one of those picture postcard moments. Then I think it was CFMI on the radio, the DJ played Greg Lake's "I Believe in Father Christmas". It was that brief moment in syncronicity, and to top it off. The crescendo was right as I was driving off the bridge. 


      I won't forget that moment. I gotta say it was beautiful. Gave me chills, but in a good way.

      @Ghostsof1915 Awesome mate. it's beautiful how such moments get frozen in memory. Had one like that where I was drivin home from Cowtown(Dec 1992)..had broken up with LT girl, & even my heater(old Datsun) was broken!

      :^) blowin cold air, all night thru the Rockies. I was blastin G & R, screamin lyrics louder than Axel, to keep warm. Finally reached Hope..the town that is, not the state of mind,  Couldn't pick up Van radio yet, but wondered which tune would welcome me back to Gawd's country.

      Around Chilli, there were Larry & Willy's grating enthusiasm, announcing they were now playing the MOST requested tune, for some call-in, who wanted to record the classic:

       

      "I'll have a bbbbbbbb blue Christmmas, w,w,w,without youuuuuu!..." (the Porky Pig classic cover)

      Felt so damn good..laughin with a tear in the eye! 28 yrs, & feels like yesterday.

      here's how I know alt-theories on covid are BS. When you have trouble breathing you won't be reaching for your opinion, you'll be reaching for a ventilator.

      I’ve had covid. It lasted 4 weeks. Was not fun but I’m young. For me it was like a bad Flu. 
       

      No matter what though. It’s tough on the body and you should wear a mask if you are young especially to protect your grandparents and other people’s family. Young people are lucky but we need to do our part no matter what.

      US only for now.  Could be a nice boost to our airline industry once there's a vaccine if people have to fly on our airlines to avoid that deathtrap in North America.

    1. Nuxfanabroad

      Nuxfanabroad

      Wow Jimmy..that's prettydamn cool. To me, she's one of the greatest artists of the 20th C.

       

      I listen to Hejira,(full album on Utube) all the time. It takes a true painter to write lyrics like hers. Absolute, unique genius.

       

      Have been worried about her health, after her last illness(few yrs back)...

    2. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      I remember my mom telling me a story about how Joni would just bop around the hallways singing to herself as a kid. Apparently you could see it all way back then. 

    3. Nuxfanabroad

      Nuxfanabroad

      Indeed..invest a little time into some of her interviews(there's a long one, with weirdo Ghomeshi on Q, CBC)

       

      She's so open about herself. There's an honesty/integrity, that's always reflected within her work. Did your Ma attend school with her in Saskatoon or Alberta?

       

      (fav Joni lyric)..well, one of them:

      @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.

      I think the buyout window for the Canucks begins today, and is 24 hours not 48 so we don't have long to wait to see if thats an option.

  10. The really important thing is, how does Jake's extension effect the Leafs? 

    1. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      its like you've heard this before 

    2. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      It also reflects the quality and integrity of the Leafs roster. Jake's a party boy who doesn't take his diet or training seriously, he's obviously not invested and now he's overpaid. Expect two or three articles about how the Virtanen signing exposes Benning's investment in flawed hockey players. I mean, he signed Loui who's flaw is that he's only willing to score most of his goals into empty nets so there's a track record. But expect any comments related to Leafs star Matthews not exposing Bening, just himself, to mysteriously vanish. 

    3. janisahockeynut

      janisahockeynut

      Well, Jake is at Tyler Myer's house every day exercising

       

      so....either Jake is going to come to camp fit

       

      or.....Myers is coming to camp looking like a balloon

       

      :picard:

       

      I am worried! LOL

  11. Jimbo with the last big trade over a week ago... does he do the next one? 

    1. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      I'm thinking Jake for a RHD. Or maybe its hope. 

       

      But man shows you how rare big moves are going to be this year, nice he was in on such a key move in Nate. 

    2. The Lock

      The Lock

      To be fair, it might not even have to be Virtanen directly for an RHD. It could be a cap dump and Hamonic signs or something (I believe he's a RHD anyway).

       

      But I don't know, I guess it's one of those things where we will see.

    3. CRAZY_4_NAZZY

      CRAZY_4_NAZZY

      I think with the entire league in constipation cap wise, I don't think many people want to take on any salary or contracts.  I think its sign Virtanen and a depth D/goalie and we are likely done.

      There's a chance Sutter is traded with some salary retained, along with a draft pick sent to the other team.

  14. Boston's defence is looking very thin. I wonder if we could get a 2nd for Benn out of them.... 

    1. Show previous comments  3 more
    2. Master Mind

      No way Boston would pay a 2nd for a depth D, especially when there are still free agents they could sign.

    3. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      Benn is better than whats left on the market though. Maybe I'm being too optimistic on the pick :lol:

    4. Master Mind

      Master Mind

      Hamonic and Rutta are better, plus they could bring Chara back.

       

      I would think if they're targeting Benn, it would be for a late pick at best, or just future considerations. Would help with Canucks cap relief so that still wouldn't be bad.

      I'm not opposed to him on a short deal, he was basically Calgary's Tanev

  17. A Juolevi - Vatanen 3rd pairing might be good, should be able to move the puck out quite well. 

    1. NUCKER67

      NUCKER67

      That would be perfect, a Finnish pairing, break Olli into the league with a reliable D partner from his homeland.

    2. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      a little less pressure on Vatanen too, might be good for him.

  18. Well look at it this way, for 1/2 the year it will still be like we have Tanev. 

  19. I hope Jim is working on moving Loui now, there's some good players left out there today.

      Why would someone trade for Eriksson when there are good UFAs out there?

      Good players and Loui (as he is now) don't belong in the same sentence.:P

       

      Make no mistake, he ONCE was a VERY solid two-way player...but that was before he wore the Canucks jersey.

       

      Still think it'll take a 1st round pick sweetener to unload him *THIS* season.  Should be easier to dump in the next off-season.

      I heard him on 650 today, he mentioned something about having some knee issues that he's worked though so maybe he was laying off the hits to heal up. Who knows. But if he finds a more physical side we might have a winner here.

      Another nice thing about European players is that the Euro leagues are more viable for them, so if the CHL or US leagues shut down, we still have a place for them to play where they're comfortable.
