  1. I don't think TSN has covered the Canucks at all during their Free Agent Frenzy Show.

      They need to get off of Dubas' (expletive deleted) at some point.

      if i hear edmonton and ceci names anymore i am going to scream.............(here is me screaming)

  2. 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.

  3. South Park's COVID special episode is an ingenious piece of satire for the year of 2020 thus far.

      It is!  I haven't watched Southpark in about 4 years but this was brilliant!  Should I go back and watch the Disney episode?  Give me a couple of recommendations from the last two seasons

      The Disney plus episode from last season featuring Scott Malkinson was a great piece of storytelling

       

      The Amazon episodes from S22 were great, and a boy and the priest from that same season

      Oh and also the transpbobia episode from last year slayed. Great satire on trans athletes and peoples attitudes towards them

  4. Enjoyed Horvat's Spittin Chiclets interview, but man, Bizz sounds like a total meathead from the boonies. Funny guy, but he needs to tone that down a bit lol

      I don't have a problem with it as a character concept. I'm saying it sounds a little forced. Toning it down would make it seem more natural. 

    3. Brad Marchand

      Brad Marchand

      Somewhere during the interview, Horvat mentioned that Hughes lost it when they brought in Huggy Bear t-shirts to the locker room. He apparently doesn't like that nickname too much lmao.

      Better tell Bo to keep Hughes happy,because that young man is a STAR.

      If you tease people they seem to dislike you, so like I said keep him HAPPY and find a nick name for our STAR defense man that he doesn't mind so much and don't tease our Calder Cup Nominee because if he wants to be traded many fans are going to be a little more than UPSET.

      Because over the years the Canucks have not had any Norris Trophy winners(best defense man award),and Quinn might just be that guy.

  5. What's a good place to buy Leafs tickets other than StubHub? Trying to get tickets for the Canucks vs. Leafs game in January...

  6. Had fun playing against Stecher over some paintball. Made sure to not hit him - don't want him getting injured haha. Side note: dude looks jacked as hell.

      Nope. Maple Ridge. 

       

      Wanted to talk more, but it looked like he was out with a bunch of friends - didn't want to bother him. 

  7. Whoa Gary Thorne is calling NHL games again - 

     

    Awesomeeeeeeeeeee

      Jam126

      I forgot how lively he is when someone scores. lol

    2. Chip Kelly

      Chip Kelly

      He has been calling games of the NHL video game series and doing baseball nationally for the playoffs as well as Baltimore Orioles local broadcasts.

       

      I love when he yells "SCORING OPPORTUNITY"!!! He  also butchers Matt Stajan's name in the video game series calling Matt "Stay-on" instead of Matt "Stay-jan"

  8. Re-watched Torts' end of season press conference 2 years back...the guy doesn't get enough credit for being the very first trigger for this rebuild. Blatantly called out the lack of youth on the team several times.

      I remember that presser well. I was on and off the Torts train all year long, but the guy was not the coach we needed at all. I laugh at all the people who said "You wait and see what he does with CBJ this year, you'll see". Well, where are all of you now?

       

      Nevertheless, he nailed it with the core being stale, rebuilding on the fly is tough to do, but not impossible, you need to have some luck, and some prospects that are somewhat ready to jump in right away, and cap space, or moveable players. We were working with a short hand. 

       

      Add in the question about what ownership says about roster moves and who's to say Tort's was the guy responsible? All I say is he was the 1st one to put it that way bluntly in public. Then he and MG were fired an they still tried to compete. 

       

      So yeah I find it interesting, but still don't think he was the trigger. Maybe I'm wrong.

       

       

    4. Tortorella's Rant

      Tortorella's Rant

      2006-2012... a big black hole in drafting. That's why we are where we are now. Horvat and Co. and the twins. About a 15 year gap where the reigns are being passed

  9. want san jose to have the worst goal song? well then vote for this beauty: 

     

  10. so the virtanen-chloe moretz things is apparently becoming true...slowly...

      If he tames her with a strict leather belt, he'll likely develop into a bold, muscular PWF...(least that's what Gran'pa would say)

      TheOgRook

      @GS. What I was getting at is she doesn't need to date make to get attention.  His star status is way lower ;p. I never commented on her quality of character.  But who are we to judge. She could be a real sweetheart. Or the female version of Jakob Hoggard lol

  11. morning hockey games in korea; 16 hour time zone difference can't stop me.

  12. 8 months in ottawa was a great experience, but its time to go back home. helllooooo vancouver.

  13. and so the 2015 federal election campaign period begins...

      It translated poorly and sounded like a to do list, not an actual success story.

  15. hoping the twins do this again next season....

  16. what's with all these companies squeezing in 4k/QHD displays on 13 inch laptops? waste of money and battery life .

  17. Backwards compatibility for Xbox One? COD4 better make that list of compatible games soon. I want my COD4 multiplayer back.

      I will be pissed also, this would mean the Flames are close to win the cup. Yikes!

      I don't think they could beat Chicago.

      lol they won one game

  20. watching the season end interviews today made me re-watch Tortorella's season end interview last year. he may have been a terrible coach, but he spoke the truth, and much of it still holds today. we need to get younger.

    1. Winter Soldier

      It's coming. Relax.

    2. KoreanHockeyFan

      i know. i just think that a lot of what Tortorella said last year was right, and I appreciate how he was so honest about the situation and how he messed up.

    3. ShakyWalton

      ShakyWalton

      I hope WD isnt stubborn enough to not have many young players in the lineup next year...easy to say relax every year..but none of us are getting any younger.

  21. gonna be at the bell centre watching Luongo take on the Habs. fffff yeeaaaaaaaahhhhh

    1. brilac

      brilac

      Totally yeah! I am going to be in Montreal sometime in April. Hopefully I can be at the Bell Centre.

  22. GM JB thinks next year's draft might even be a better draft (as per his press conference today)...interesting.

    1. Baka

      Baka

      What if like every draft after the next from now till ever is better than the last. Until in like 20 years from now every player drafted in the first round is like Sidney Crosby x5 *Keanu Reeve's Woah*

  23. Winters in Ottawa suck.
