      I miss Ohlund, a healthy Salo, and Lumme. 

      And wish tragedy never struck Luc Bourdon.

      Hilliard Graves was the best.

      Salo with a ruptured testicle wasn't half bad either.  OJ reminds me a lot of Bourdon prior to us losing him.  He was finally showing signs of reaching his potential too.  Hard not to cheer for his friend Letang to do well in Pittsburgh.

  2. I kinda want Henrik to pass the C on to Bo at the first home game next season.

      Messier is going to Pass the C on

      I was thinking the same thing the other day. It’s only right.

      I tweeted to aquaman that it should be done during the Sedin jersey retirement night.  Would put a nice little "bo" on things..

  3. My nephew has questions about Hockey Talks, he's doing an assignment on it. I couldn't find the answer for a few questions, I was wondering if someone here could help us out?

      @Apricot https://www.nhlpa.com/news/1-12980/hockeytalks-launches-to-raise-awareness-for-mental-health


      It seems like Kevin Bieksa is the spokesperson/public representative.  He was the person to initially announce Hockey Talks back in 2013.  The article also mentions that the NHLPA is involved.  This is a stretch but I think it would be logical if every Canadian team is funding their respective Hockey Talks campaign.

      Hopefully I was able to help you and your nephew out.

  7. Can hockey come back please I'm not getting any younger here 

    1. Alflives


      I decided to start counting my age backwards at each coming birthday.  This year, in October, I will be 66.  It’s kind of a nice feeling to be getting younger.  Now, when hockey starts up again, I should have a better chance of staying awake for the third period of our home games!  

      We seriously need hockey.  :picard:

  10. Well CDC, next season I may not be as active on here than before because I am officially moving to Toronto.

      I lived in Toronto for 5 years. Much happier here in Vancouver. I didn't mind the cold and snow, but getting around town is a pain especially if you live in the suburbs. Ok if you're downtown and can take the Subway or Streetcar. 



    3. -AJ-


      Maybe it's just me, but wouldn't you crave CDC even more? If I moved away from BC, I'd crave the companionship of my fellow Canuck fans all the more.

      We'll hold a moment of silence for you after you become a Laffs fan. 

  11. I've lost my voice, my hands hurt from clapping so much, my eyes hurt from crying so much. What a magical night, I can't believe I had the opportunity to see it live. I will remember this game for the rest of my life.

      And I can say that, as much "sadness" that I felt and tears that flowed, I can't feel anything but good about that.  That was a special night and to experience it was amazing.  

  12. WOAH I passed 10,000 posts. I didn't even notice until now. This is crazzzzyyyy

      I'm nearing 10,000 myself. It's been a long journey.

  13. You guys know what day it is? It’s Bell Let’s Talk Day! Every time you tweet #BellLetsTalk or retweet someone who has, Bell donates 5 cents to mental health initiatives. It’s important so y’all get tweeting or retweeting!

      Apricot, I wasn't going to say anything, but I guess I changed my mind. Here's Bell's idea of "Let's Talk":



      Maria McLean was an afternoon radio host at K93 FM in Grand Falls until she was fired on Jan. 12, just one hour after sharing her struggles with mental illness with her colleagues and giving her supervisor a doctor's note stating that she needed two weeks off work to adjust to her new medication.


      "It's like a nightmare I can't escape, I think about it all day, I think about it when I sleep," said the 24-year-old.


      McLean said the irony of the situation is that the New Brunswick radio station she was fired from is owned by Bell Media, part of Bell Canada Enterprises, the company behind a national fundraiser for mental health initiatives called "Bell Let's Talk."


      But McLean feels that talking and sharing her struggles is what caused her to lose her job.

      "I took that note from my doctor to my supervisor because I was admitting I needed help. I said, 'In two weeks I am going to be better. I just need this time.' And I was punished for that."


      The former afternoon radio host and ad writer said she was caught off-guard because she thought things were going well at work. McLean said her supervisor, Kirk Davidson, suggested she take over hosting the morning show the summer of 2017.


      "That was the day before I was fired."



      Mental health and the reality of mental health struggles are real, but Bell and their 5 cent contributions are a pittance. 100,000 tweets would yield a mere $5000. For a company the size of Bell, even 1 million tweets would yield a pittance. I have no problem with raising awareness of mental health issues, but unless I have this all wrong Bell is clearly using this to buy cheap publicity instead of actually caring about the issues. 


      For those who might think I have some bias here, well, it isn't toward Bell. I'm a Rogers customer (Rogers sucks) who has had positive interactions with Bell customer service over the years. This just feels crap though. 


      Sorry for countering your positive intent with such cynicism, but 5 cents is 0 cents, and although I don't know Bell's side of Maria's story the whole thing smells like a $&!# sandwich.

      @Western Red Wth dude...you need to chill out. Its a joke between me and 95% of CDC. Even then, you don't need to be rude about it. Chill the f out, guy.
