    The 2006-2007 version of Luongo would have been my choice, but any other form of Luongo after that and I’d have to pursue different options, with respect.  I don’t know the other goalies all that well and so I chose Terry Sawchuk.

     

    Agreed. the 06-07 Luongo is one of the most dominant goalie performances I've seen. Crazy how Martin Brodeur had to pick that same year to take it away from Lui. I personally felt Lui had a better season, but eastern bias gave the edge to Brodeur.

  2. This is good. While I agree he has made questionable signings, he has given this team the deepest prospect pool ever. 

    Assuming this core stays together, if this team wins a cup in the next ten years, Benning deserves much credit. 

     

    Also, I find the argument that "Scouts were responsible for drafting Pettersson, not Benning" an absolute joke. This argument can be made for every superstar ever drafted. 'Brian Burke didn't draft the Sedins, Tomas Gradin did". It's under the GM's watch, period.

    Here's proof that Orca Bay was a meddling corporate ownership that wanted their corporate orca influence on the Canucks:

    ^^^Arthur Griffiths said it wasn't "his intention to incorporate an orca into the team's logo". 

     

    **In fact, Griffiths stated on his former radio show that he wanted to have the updated Johnny Canuck in the Skate colours, also designed by Orca logo designer Brent Lynch, as the new primary but new majority owner John McCaw and his Orca Bay "Yes people" like Stan McCammon wanted to have their orca brand in the Canucks' identity.

    ^^^ Orca Bay Capital Corp. Sounds like corporate influence to me.

    While I'm not responding to this quote, I would like to respond to one of your other posts in this thread that I cannot find. I am paraphrasing, but you responded to a comment about the orca being important for indigenous history, and then posited that indigenous history is relevant throughout all of Canada, and then used Montreal as an example. 

     

    I think you're forgetting the orcas significance to the pacific north west. The orca is much more prevalent in the pacific ocean than the atlantic or arctic. 

     

     

    "Killer Whales are the most widely-distributed mammals in the world. Although they are more commonly found in areas associated with high ocean productivity, in the mid to high latitudes, they can tolerate temperature ranges from polar to tropical waters. In Canada, Killer Whales are found in all three oceans, but are less common in Atlantic and Arctic regions. In British Columbia, they have been observed throughout almost all marine waters, including long inlets, narrow passages and deep embayments, as well as occasionally up brackish river channels."

  4. Perhaps he is writing this just IN CASE he does not re-sign. IMO, it makes sense for him to re-sign, as that team can still win. The age argument is hilarious. Brent Burns is 34 and still one of the better offensive defencemen in the league. Erik Karlsson does not play a reckless game either, I am not convinced that he will never be the same. I think he has many great years in front of him.

  5. I find it amusing that people are suggesting that the reason Connor never participated in the after fight brawl is because he was showing 'class'. No, he is on probation and one of the conditions of any probation order is to keep the peace and be of good behaviour. It is a safe bet that if he was not on probation he would have jumped the gate too.

     

    edit; there is actually a clip of Connor trying to hop the fence (which now quashes my theory). Good thing security prevented him from doing so.

    How does that excuse Khabib and his corner?  Conor paid for that and now Khabib will pay for this.  It's all in NSAC's hands now.  If they suspend Khabib for a year, he'll lose his title.  If he only gets dinged for 6 months, the UFC may just let him keep it.

    You're qualifying your statement with the false assumption that I believe Khabib's actions should be excused. I was comparing the moral culpability of both of their actions.

    yeah, there is some product I posted here a while back. I forget what it is called, but works amazingly. Fish oil stuff; tastes pretty foul, super fishy and not in the good sense, but does wonders. I get joint pain in my elbows in particular. Tricep extensions, dips, really cause my elbows to hurt. Starting to get it in my knees too. Weight lifting 4 days a week for about the past 7 years I suppose will do this eventually do you. It's like being 70 years old, and having accrued tons of mileage, the daily grind, you get sore.

    Have the benefits of working out compensated for the joint issues? If so, in what way?

     

    also, this is a personal question, but do you mind sharing your age range? 

  8. Mattias and markstrom are not good enough returns. Markstrom will be good one day but Mattias has 9 goals and is 26 years old, still relatively young but I'm not sure if he's going to have a break out season soon. If there was a first rounder thrown in there, this would have been a good deal for us. i think Gillis really messed this trade up. Thank you to Luongo for being the best goalie this franchise has ever had.
