  1. I came here because I love Tryamkin, only to find my love for Rathbone grow! This young man appears to have all the mental and emotional qualities needed to thrive in big moments, I just hope he signs. Another interesting part of the draft clip was JB's confidence in Gunnarsson, that one appears to be a miss. As for Risto, that's a hard pass. I agree, I'd rather let these other picks play out, attempt to bring back Tryamkin and use FA market, as with Myers and Benn, to fill any big holes. Trading for an asset like Risto would be foolish IMO, as his price
  2. New job! Passed the physical exam and the drug/alcohol testing yesterday. Heading to Red Deer this weekend for a week of orientation and training! I'm excited about this new opportunity!

      Ahh. Pigeon holed. At least the fishing, hiking and biking is good there.

       

      Good on you, way to push through. Make the sacrifices while you can.

       

      Congrats man!

      Great news, congrats!   I've been up in Fort Nelson a few times (not recently) with quick stops in FSJ.  Love it up there.

      Congrats on the new opportunity!  

  3. Yea "JR", you were very clear that it didn't matter to you what happened, although you were leaning towards Utica for both.
  4. Much of that is due to foreign investors hiding money in our real estate market.
  5. TSN 1040 posting broken links today... And they keep posting without fixing the first broken ones. Grade A production.

     

    Anyone get the radio clips from today to work? http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/team/vancouver-canucks

      The top 4 are broken.

  6. My fantasy team...

     

    McDavid, Scheifele, Bobrovsky, Arvidsson, Forsberg, Ekman-Larsson, Niederreiter, Giordano, Radulov, Trouba, (Corey) Schneider, Fowler, Larkin, Galchenyuk, (Ryan) Ellis, Marleau, Kadri, (Sam) Reinhart.

    I think I might do okay this year. Been in the top 3 the past 5 years, but haven't won yet.

      I like it a lot, and I'm not just saying that because Sam Reinhart is on your team. If Gally, Reinhart and Larkin can all take off point wise this year i think you'll be sitting pretty.

      That was my thinking. Lots of sleepers in there.

      There is certainly potential ti have a very high scoring team. In a couple pooler magazines I know they have Sam reaching the 20 goal 55-60 point range.

  7. Wow, he mentioned the Olympics... That could be a big pull for a young man. If he had no chance to make the team while playing in the NHL, I can see why a proud Russian would want to have a chance to play for his country. The 3-year deal was probably pushed by Motorist to ensure he didn't bolt back to the NHL after one season. I still think he will come back. He's a competitive guy, and there is nothing like playing in the best league in the world.
  8. Yea I've been following Gaudette this year and he's quite the player. Another good pick by JB. Lockwood has also had a great season.
  9. Wow, I can't believe I've been on this forum for over 12 years. Does anyone know when CDC first came online?

      This is not my first account. I joined in '03 not long after the board came online. It has had many incarnations and looks over the years :)

      Ahh... That explains the confusion! I remember browsing the forum for probably six months before I joined up. I was quite young at the time lol

      There's not a tonne of us '03ers and '04ers left here anymore. Those of us who are have seen many changes over those years....

  10. Well VanDecker, I think we're gonna find out as soon as he hits -1000!

  11. HAHAHA! Awesome. : )

  12. Attn: PowerIce - Try buying a McDonalds meal with dimes and nickles ;)
