  1. No matter how you view his tactics, at the end of the day, he's just doing his job and acting in the best interest of his clients. If you want to blame anyone, you can blame the Vancouver media for always spinning these types of news bits into more dramatically negative coverage of the Canucks.
  2. Green might have pushed for Baumer to be extended - they've "grown" together dating back to their days in Utica.
  3. Very good point. Hope this changes, but yes, I did not fully appreciate some of the struggles a lot of workers are forced to go through because of terrible sick day policies. It's sad to see how so many people still need to decide between their own health or being able to pay off their bills.
  4. Well for one, I'm sure workplaces will have a lot more stringent "stay at home if you feel sick" policies. Behaviours will change. For example, I plan on wearing a mask at all times when on public transit from now on.
  5. Wouldn't mind if we traded the pick for a young-ish impact defenceman to be honest (e.g. Ristolainen).
  6. What? You know that a whole lot of research has been done on the long-term effects of concussions over the past 20-30 years, right? Players are bigger, faster and stronger now.
  7. During the cap era, no team with a player whose cap hit is above $10 million has won a playoff round, up until Price did it last night. Quite eye-opening and something to note when looking at Hughes/Pettersson's contracts.

      Was there ever a $10M player, pre-cap era?

      @PunjabiCanucks Wow. Star player salaries escalated quickly from the mid-90s to the early 2000s. I guess that's one of the reasons the league wanted to implement the cap.

  8. Interesting first minute of this video (ignore the rest, it's just a bunch of crying over why the Leafs can't win) No team with a player that has a cap hit in the double digits has won a playoff round (during the cap era) until Carey Price did it last night. Really hope both Benning and Hughes/Pettersson keep this in mind when they're negotiating contracts.

  10. Ah, good catch. Makes Gretzky leaving the Oilers less funny, but good to know.
  11. Relax the hyperbolic language. You're talking about a professional sports team, not the French Revolution.
  12. I'm open to both sides of aisle on the opinion of Benning and management, but can people here learn how to critically think about tweets from local hockey news pundits? At the end of the day, a lot of this crap on Twitter are rumours and aren't 100% verified. For example, J Pat's tweet on a veteran leaving right after the final game of the season and insinuating the player was frustrated with the team was ridiculous - we later found out it was Pearson who was leaving for family reasons. That's just despicable reporting. Criticize or praise Benning and the direction of

  14. I'd rather focus on trying to get Ristonlaien - we need more right-handed D

  16. You'll have a lot of fun watching social media influencers posting 10 second Instagram stories and TikTok videos on how to "get rich" by "investing."
  17. Tack it onto their property tax bill.
  18. Dr. Henry just announced 18+ in hotspots will get their appointment notifications today. I guess that's why I got my text message earlier.
  19. Ristolainen also said he would be "fine" with being traded. https://www.tsn.ca/pissed-buffalo-sabres-defenceman-rasmus-ristolainen-fine-with-trade-away-from-team-1.1637300 He'd look pretty good with Juolevi Need more right-handed D on this team.
  20. That's what I was thinking, so I checked the BC govt website and while I'm considered to be in a hot spot, it still says 30+ Another friend just said he booked, and he's in a hot spot but under 30. Oh well, not complaining. I guess they expanded the criteria for hot spots. I always just assumed most of the hot spots in Greater Vancouver were in Surrey.
