  1. Hope Benning isn't doing a lot of moves to "accelerate" our competitiveness this year. I'm honestly treating this season as another development year and waiting for next off-season when a bunch of money is off the books.
  2. I don't know if it was the **** sucking eastern Canadian sports media or the brilliance of Hyman's agent, but the hype around Hyman is astounding. Good for him for getting that bag. But good luck to whoever gets stuck with his contract for the next 7-8 years. I'm not going to sit here and say Benning is brilliant with signing bargain deals, but I'm happy that he doesn't get caught up in the hype (except Eriksson lols).
  3. Are people actually trying to blame Benning for not being able to sign Larsson or Oleksiak? C'mon, the pestilent whining and crying about his alleged inability to sign and draft players is somewhat digestible, but this kind of complaining is actually just plain stupid.
  4. Your negativity (and a handful of the other usual suspects) is a perfect indictment of your own theory of how players don't want to come here because of the terrible media.
  5. Ok can someone for the love of god tell me who this Taj person is on Twitter. This dude must be enjoying all of the free airtime he gets on CDC.
  6. Regardless of whether Dhaliwal is yet again trying to stir up some Canucks drama, I must say, Don and Dhali have been able to get a consistently good mix of guests on their show. Not sure if it has to do with the fact that they're not affiliated with a big network anymore.
  7. So in other words, Benning is doing his job and doing his rounds on potentially available players. Slow news day I see.
  8. Nah, while I don't fully agree with your argument, it wasn't directed towards you. I was just yelling at a blank wall because I've facepalmed so many times throughout this pandemic at anti-vaxxers who use the whole freedom argument.
  9. Couldn't have said it better myself. The sometimes erratic level of pride over freedom and individualism in North America makes me laugh at times. By being a Canadian citizen you are willfully giving up some of your freedoms in exchange for security and peace. You agree to play by a set of rules in a society that you live in and interact with on a daily basis. Don't like the game you're playing? You're welcome to leave and go join a different one.
  10. Sigh...there's always at least one... I suggest you read up on representation and how important it is for minorities.
  11. Cases in the US starting to go back up again... Hopefully those checks to make sure only fully vaccinated people are in coming once the border re-opens are tight with no loopholes... Ugh.
  12. Ok, now I really bet Ken Holland is kicking himself for pulling the trigger on Keith.
  13. I genuinely wonder if Ken Holland is kicking himself for not waiting another day. But then again, I guess Suter and Keith are similar in age anyways.
  14. Cost. Benefit. Analysis. Weigh the benefit (immunization) against the cost (rare blood clots). It's a really simple calculation that we all apply to our daily lives, not just with COVID vaccines.
  15. I'm going to repeat this again: cost-benefit analysis. Weigh the marginal cost of not getting a vaccine / slower roll-out against the marginal benefit of a fast vaccine roll-out which has already proven to reduce caseloads and hospitalizations by a significant factor. If you truly believe the risk of harmful, but rarely occurring negative effects of mixing vaccines outweighs the benefits of immunization, I'd really like to hear your rationale. If you expect an unprecedented worldwide immunization program to move on with zero medical risks to the population, you are sad
  16. Nothing wrong with a difference of opinion. My opinion was just that people get to uptight with how NHL players conduct themselves off the ice. The larger message behind my post was that hockey will always be my favourite sport to watch, but I can totally see why the NBA and NFL are much more appealing for people from an entertainment perspective. Those leagues do so much of a better job of letting their star players showcase themselves and build their own branding. I believe there's a tendency from fans and the media to shame NHL players whenever they "step out of li
  17. It's definitely been validated as a viable technology because of emergency govt. approvals to get it out for vaccinations. If it weren't for the pandemic, I'd guess that mRNA technology would not have been popularized for another 2-3 years.
  18. Oh loosen up a little people. One of the reasons why hockey is the little brother amongst North American major sports is because hockey players are notoriously known to have some of the most boring personalities. Whenever a hockey player tries to show his personality, people and the media instantly question his "class" or "attitude." Kucherov is just cracking a few jokes after winning the cup.
  19. I'd argue that's what the Feds should have expected by making enrollment into the app completely voluntary with no other incentives. Hong Kong has a tracker that has been successful, but it was mandatory and had features that would make a lot of westerners shiver at the idea because of privacy concerns.
  20. Players not wanting to play in a Canadian market is a very real thing. I forget who, but there was a former player or GM that said the Vancouver media was one of the worst and actually turned off some players from coming. Oh, and taxes - can't forget about that.
  21. Don't they just provide you a new mask to put on anyways? I remember coming in with a mask and they told me to put on the new one they gave me.
  22. Skip to the 8:20 mark I'm not here as a supporter of Singh, just trying to highlight how a lot of people, including the media, don't seem to have a grasp of the situation.
  23. I'm in my 20s as well and I actually went through something very similar a few months ago. For me it was about the constant fear of loss as a result of death. Losing all of your relationships, hardwork, etc. It might have been happening because of how being in my 20s, I was feeling as if the pandemic was wasting away some of my prime years and now I feel more pressure to do the things I want to do and fast-track my life to "succeed faster." Being a notoriously impatient person didn't help with this either. I think I've gotten over the hump and my solution was pretty si
  24. 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.
  25. Green might have pushed for Baumer to be extended - they've "grown" together dating back to their days in Utica.
