  1. Well, I'm the 10, 289th highest posting member on this site.

  2. Wish they would get rid of the All Star week and have the season finish a week earlier.

      Should put the All-Star Game before the Stanley Cup Finals, like the NFL has the Pro Bowl before the Super Bowl

  3. Tim Hortons' grease trap kills a 3 year old.

    I didn't even know they stored grease underground.  I always figured grease was dumped in a small dumpster that a truck would just come along and dump/siphon off the contents when needed.

    A 3-year-old boy was killed Monday when he fell into a grease trap behind a Tim Hortons in upstate New York, authorities said.

    The child walked over the trap — which resembles a manhole cover and tops the vat where used cooking oil is collected — behind the Tim Hortons in Rochester at about 11 a.m. ET, police said.

    When first responders arrived, the boy had been pulled out and was on his back with an adult performing CPR, police said.

    The child was rushed to Strong Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead at noon.

    "Our hearts go out to the family of this child who had to suffer this unimaginable tragedy," Rochester police Investigator Rick Camp said.

    Police are investigating how the lid had come loose, allowing the child to fall in.

    A rep for Tim Hortons could not be immediately reached for comment Monday.

      The few restaurants that I worked that, we emptied the grease into barrels and put the barrels behind locked gates.

      @Jaku also I know I just wrote a wall of text there but I feel like I was saying too much while at the same time saying too little.

       

      You kind of just need to dive in like I said. :P

      Basically, you start off with a base of attributes. You earn points to put into your player every week (TPE - Total Points Earned).


      Every week there are certain things you can do to earn points to put into your player. You can make graphic sigs like people have on CDC, or write up a 500 word article once a week for 6 TPE. Even podcasts people can do.

       

      Then there's a load of other things you can do per week like Fantasy predictions, weekly predictions, and you can even claim what is called Welfare if you don't have time to do stuff during the week.

       

      There's a big rulebook here but that section of it tells you how to earn TPE per week. We have an online section called the VHL Portal where you post your links to claim your points etc.

       

      If you're interested, there's a Create a Player tab at the top of the site and somebody will help you out once you create, if not me. Honestly, it's a little overwhelming at first for everyone, but gets pretty straightforward. Hard to really explain it all at once until you dive in.

       

      Every GM of each team is a real person controlling players, contracts, etc etc and it's all run through a hockey sim called Simon T Hockey Simulator where all the GMs make their lines and strategies too.

  9. So Netflix just cancelled Daredevil. 

    Curse you Netflix!

    1. DollarAndADream

      DollarAndADream

      Disney will bring some of the Marvel's back once their service is up and running. Daredevil creators themselves said this isn't the last you'll see of Daredevil. Maybe that means he'll branch into the movies, that would be cool with Kingpin, but I'd likely think that Disney will just have the shows on their service.

       

      Jessica Jones and Punisher have a season coming, and you can fully expect they'll be cancelled soon after those get released as well.

  10. Biega or Bieksa for the #8 D spot? 

    1. DollarAndADream

      DollarAndADream

      Typo more than anything. But I'll keep it there.

       

      Also, Lalongo is one of my favourite goalies.

      I think at this point, Biega is better than Bieska in most ways.

      His shot looks just as great as before, if not better. That's a gigantic relief.

  13. In my absolute honest opinion, I think we could be a real front runner for Tavares. I’m not saying we’ll for sure sign him, but, we can offer him things most teams can’t. 

    1. DollarAndADream

      DollarAndADream

      mfw we sign Neal, Carlson, and Tavares...then start contending. :P

  14. Gotta feel for Leipsic tonight, traded from the top Western Team in the League to the worst.

    1. DollarAndADream

      DollarAndADream

      A player must have 41 games played with the club to have his name on the cup, so technically he should get on there as a member of the Canucks, considering he played 44 for Vegas! :P

    1. DollarAndADream

      DollarAndADream

      Ha. I'm 26 now and I more or less only ever get carded at the liquor store if I shave. I've never been carded if I don't shave for a few days or have a beard. I always make some smartass remark, and they love to remind me that it's a compliment that I look young.

  17. Can't wait until next season where we will witness Edler not pass the puck to Boeser on the PP! 

    1. DollarAndADream

      DollarAndADream

      I mean, even if he doesn't pass to Boeser, Boeser is more of the "hit in the rebound" type of player anyways. He gets to that dirty area in front of the net.

  18. No Canadian teams in the SCF.  All is right with the world!! :lol:

    1. DollarAndADream

      DollarAndADream

      @Xbox Yeah, I agree with you there. I think it's obvious that I would rather the Canucks end the Canadian winless streak than anyone else. I'm just saying if the Canucks aren't in it, then I'll cheer for whatever Canadian team is. I mean, even if the Canucks are in the playoffs, I'll cheer for all of Canada unless they are facing the Canucks, then Canucks > them of course.

      You guys are too sour. I cheer for all Canadian teams, even the Leafs and Flames. Who cares if they'll troll us when they win? You can 100% that many Canucks fans will troll them as well if we won. It's just how fanbases go.

      This website should really have more than 1 theme. There is a theme option at the bottom. Graphics dudes should help out and make one maybe.

  21. if Nashville wins a cup before Vancouver i would not know what to think

     

    1. DollarAndADream

      DollarAndADream

      Nashville has great leadership in their head office. Their drafting has been superb, and they've made great trades.

       

      The Canucks have been mostly miss with their drafting, with some good players here and there, but nothing crazy. Trades have been alright, but nothing game changing.

       

      It's just not easy to get elite level players. It's not easy to get amazing, puck moving defensemen like Nashville has. I mean, they were so stacked on D that they were able to move a great young D like Seth Jones for more offense in Ryan Johansen.

  22. lol canucks fans are the worst. If the keeler thing happened to us we would be screaming for bloody murder but because it happened to edmonton its the correct call lol

    1. DollarAndADream

      DollarAndADream

      That's how fans are, I guess. Very biased in thinking. It's like how Brad Marchand is a little rat face, cheating, dirty player.....but if he was a Canuck it would be amazing.

  23. 2 for 6 in my bracket thus far, oh why did I pick the Flames to beat the Ducks

    1. DollarAndADream

      DollarAndADream

      I picked Flames and Hawks...but I also picked Blues and Oilers, so I'm 2/4 in the West.

    1. DollarAndADream

      DollarAndADream

      Eh, to me, what happened 6 years ago is in the past. Sure, they still have guys like Marchand, Bergeron, and Chara, but it's a very different team.

       

      Although, obviously I'm rooting for Burrows and the Sens.
