  1. Been offered Giroux for my Ovechkin/Faulk in a long term keeper league pts only. I see Ovechkin on a slow decline and Giroux is 3 years younger and a center who is more likely to get pts. Thoughts? :D

      Faulk is pretty prone to injury, Ovi has way more upside and brings a bit more then those two. You cant keep up Ovi shoots.

      Thanks for the help guys. Yea, Ovi hasn't declined yet, but it could happen eventually. I just feel Giroux would be better long term as he is 3 years younger and centers tend to be more durable than wingers from what I've seen. Goals/assists are 1 pt each so its not the goals, but point factor long term... Aiyaa, keeper decisions that keep me up at night :<

      I really think that it's an even trade. But Ovi is still the best of the best. He will put up 40+ goals easy around 75-80 points while Giroux will post the same number of points as well. I'd do Faulk for Giroux straight up but with Ovi I'd hang on to both of them

  2. Would you folks prefer Huberdeau or Draisaitl in a long term keeper league 1 pt per G/A? :D

      Now if he is converted to LW it could be interesting. I mean Lucic will be in mix as a top line winger with McDavid and Eberle, but after that it's Maroon, and Pouliot. I believe that if he is converted to a LW he could be a top 6 presence, maybe even a chance at a top line winger if he plays better than Lucic. But there's a lot of ifs.

      I cannot see Draisatl as McDavids winger with Puljujarvi and Lucic there.  But could be interesting

    4. Gabes24


      Well alot of Edmonton fans from HFboards think he will be 100% playing on the 1st PP, which could result in Drai playing 1st line at even strength here and there, I don't expect Lucic to play the full season on the 1st line. 


      Some people seem to think that Yak will have a resurgence as well :blink: Well if you can't trade him.... plug him on the  1st line lol

  3. Keeper League, only points @ 1 a piece. What order would you draft? Saad, Thornton, Spezza, Sharp, Turris... help appreciated :D

      Same as Jazz except put Turris ahead of Thornton. I think he takes a major downswing this year.

    3. Baer.


      Sharp (will be with Benn and seguin)

      Saad (Johansen and Foligno)

      Turris (Ryan and stone)

      Spezza (older)

      Thornton (geezer can score, but San Jose will be bad)

    4. Gabes24


      cool, thanks guys! needed some assurance for tnt :)

  4. Quick question CDC... I quit my job and had 4 k in vacation pay (over 2 yrs) and a 600 dollar paycheck, i only got paid around 2,600... is that normal tax deduction for that pay bracket? Haven't seen my paystub yet... Signed worried.

      One problem may be that they have to tax you as if you make that much on every paycheque. So a $4600 pay period (assuming you are paid biweekly) translates to about $120K per year. So you would have been taxed at that level. The good news is, you should get some of that back a tax time next year.

    3. Gabes24


      yeah i gotcha ari, well i had about 1100-1200 for each of the last 2 years backed up and 600 from my final week of actual work. I get that totally since my "bracket" is that high up, as long as in the long run i get it paid back haha. That's good to hear I just have to play the waiting game now, thanks for helping straighten it out goalie13/arigold, much appreciated! :D

    4. goalie13


      No prob. I learned about that the first time I ever got a big bonus. I lost about half in deductions, but then got some of that back the following April.

  5. Anyone know any good places for black friday weekend sales in the Seattle area tomorrow?

  6. Looking to make this logo into a shirt for halloween. http://s3.amazonaws.com/manmadediy-uploads-production/photos/194/picture_4.png Could anyone please help me convert it to a proper .eps file/(vector)? so i could bring it to a shop to get it printed please? Be much appreciated

  7. My Smart(car) transmission just started messing up real bad this morning, anyone know of any (decently) priced auto shops open today near Richmond/Van?

    1. Mr.DirtyDangles


      No but trading it in sounds like a better idea :P I feel so unsafe in those things o.O

    2. diesel_3


      unless you know a good backyard mechanic, you are going to pay out the ass in labor..plus they will find 2-3 more things 'wrong' with it while you're there.

  8. Anyone notice Willie Mitchell is still on the CDC wallpaper?

    1. Captain Bob

      You mean a DSLR vs a pocket sized point & shoot?

      They're mostly concerned with the lens...standard lens - likely ok. Anything more - doubt it.

      If you are driving - no problem...you can run it out to your car if it isn't allowed. If not ?

    3. Gabes24


      Yea its a standard DSLR I think, but yeah, always worth a try right? Thanks for the advice!
