  1. Did the Green haters forget he only got signed for two more years? I think that's a pretty clear signal that he's on a pretty short leash. 

     

    I say he gets fired mid-season if the Canucks completely crash coming out of the gate or he gets axed at the end of this season if the Canucks don't make the playoffs. Or his contract doesn't get renewed if the Canucks have two quick playoff exits for the next two years. 

     

    I'm not mad that he hasn't gotten fired yet, but I'm happy that he's on a short leash, the next two years are his last chance to show that he's a legitimate NHL coach.

  2. Is it just me or is CDC panic for the start of this season been the highest it's ever been in recent memory :lol:

     

    To be fair, I guess this year and maybe next are make it or break it for all of management and the coaching staff. Kind of feels like 2008/09 when everyone was calling for AV's head until Burrows scored that GWG against Carolina.

    Sonny Milano could be a longshot Canucks pick up

     

    Former 1st round pick, he played on the US development team with Tyler Motte, was coached for multiple years under Brad Shaw in Columbus, had a 14 goal/55 game campaign with somewhat limited ice time during that time. Put up good stats under Shaw and Torts generally, including 5th in points scored per 60 mins in those years (amongst players who played at least 35 games):

    DOES NOT fill the PK role, but if Chiasson and Petan are being considered, I could see Milano in their realm as well. Doesn't have the size issues of Petan, and is a bit more versatile than Chiasson. Had 23 points in 55 games the years before last, but last year did not play much hockey.

     

     

     

    The underrated part of that highlight is Torts' reaction :lol:

    We need to restructure how our education is done in general to actually reflect life after school but no changes in that regard seems to ever get made. As a result, I have little faith what you are suggesting would get done nor would it be effective enough.

     

    I see the conflicting problems as the following:

     

    1) An individual is given a lot of power through social media which can easily be abused

    2) The regulation of free speech on social media is a slippery slope

    It's not easy, but that's the only true solution I see to this problem. 

     

    My "useless" liberal arts degree actually taught me a lot about how to think critically. I think some form of that needs to be tailored and implemented for elementary/high school kids.

     

    I'm not sure what current high school curriculums are like now, but even something as simple as teaching high school kids basic statistics so that they learn how to critically read stat lines on news media headlines would be helpful as well. Showing clips of John Oliver and Ben Shapiro to show how different opinions exist and are driven by different political agendas, etc. I think there's lots of things that could be done.
