  1. Shorty and Murph both do a great job. Tomlinson is 'meh'. Not thrilled abut Ray and his onslaught of verbal diarrhea - but at least he'll be on a 'limited' basis. In my view Ray's as bad as Pierre McGuire....
  2. Thank you for everything you've done here over the years, your efforts have NOT gone unnoticed. See you on the other side .
  3. I suspect we're going to see a lot of these '4 Pillars' - Demko, Huggy, EP, Miller
  4. This is good news. I'm sorry if I missed it, but who's his partner going to be?
  5. Random question:

    Gas or Electric snowblower?

    I'm getting one soon, but which one?  4-5 car driveway size. Live in the interior of BC.

      Alway choose gas. It’s not even close. This is a snow blower! Just say no to electric.

      with your location and size of lot I would lean gas myself

      This morning I ordered the Greenworks Electric 2 stage snowblower from Costco - it's cheaper there than from Greenworks own website on sale lol.

      I already have their mower so I have a few batteries and have been very satisfied with that unit - hopefully the snow machine will work as well.  Either way, being from Costco, if it doesn't perform, it'll go back and I'll get a gas powered unit. 

  6. Whether you like this decision or not (I think it's a great choice), it's a good idea to name the captain right now. Media will have one less issue to nag about and Quinn is a very, very hard worker who will set a great tone throughout camp/pre-season.
  7. One would have to assume this ranking is largely speculative as you say at this stage, and based largely on points percentages from previous year mixed with other data such as: travel miles, back-to-back games, facing opponents coming in fresh or off a game the night before, ect. Since there's no 'real' numbers yet this season it's gotta be based on a lot of last year's information.
  8. How are people feeling about the recent Bill Peters hiring in the WHL?

      If he is truly remorseful and has learned from his past behaviour, I am okay with it. I’m all for second chances, within reason of course.

      As long as he loses every game, and is fired at the end of the season.

      I'm good. :lol:

      If he loses every game, I doubt that he would make it to the end of the season.

  9. Best piece of info from this article to me is that Gonch/twins will run the PP. Now who will oversee the PK? Special teams will be crucial this season, the PK itself probably kept us from making PO last year.
  10. Figured it was Brock when I saw the title. Must be hard to have a career season (goals anyway) your first full rookie season - we all know expectations can ruin a player. I truly hope he has a fantastic season.
  11. To me, it means essentially Willander and his advisors saw two things which motivated his decision to come to NA: - young kids often are given very limited opportunities in European pro leagues - he saw the need to get NA style experience before turning pro at some point. Not to mention already being in NA with no pro contractual obligations he can turn pro for the Canucks at virtually any time when both sides feel the time is right. Either way, it'll be interesting to follow his transition to NCAA.
  12. He traded a 2nd to dump Dickinson. He didn't create that mistake of course, but he did pay to fix it. I'm not saying Allvin is making poor decisions, for the most part he's got us in the right direction. But the fact remains we are a non-playoff team with cap issues having to rely on LTIR and that's not a great situation to be in. What happens if one, or both of, Pearson/Poolman are healthy come the fall?
  13. We're a non-playoff team who, as it stands now, is relying on LTIR to multiple players to make the cap, does that equate to cap flexibility - I'm not so sure?
  14. I'll give management some credit for some positive moves, certainly - we seem to be moving in the right direction. However there are glaring inconsistencies out there between what management publicly said they would do and what they actually did, mainly the fact that cap flexibility was #1 on management's priority list and they haven't done that, and also the fact that management said unequivocally they would NOT trade high picks because the organization wasn't in that 'stage of cycle developmentally'. I get it, things change and priorities evolve, but to my knowledge Allvin nor JR, publicly explained why they went against their own priorities they set when they arrived?
