    The last time Hunt was in the AHL was in 2016/17.  He's been on an NHL roster ever since.  Every report says that he's a terrific professional and a real positive presence in the room.  He takes warmups every game even if he is not playing.  

    Yup, likely him and Schenn as our 7 and 8 with Rathbone playing big minutes, all situations in Abby.

    I’d say that this backs up my argument of 6.5 average for 3 years.


    5.5 year 1

    6.5 year 2

    7.5 year 3


    To borrow a phrase, “Lock him up!”

    Pretty flawed argument.


    No arbitrator would just look at his points and the team would instantly bring up his +/-, zone starts, one dimensional play etc. There's no world where any logical person would believe Hughes is worth more than Dahlin. At BEST, you could make a case for him getting paid near the same amount, and even then there's plenty of ammo to show why he should make less.

    Dahlin at $6x3 is a good turn for JB.  Should put QH around $5x3 as Dahling is a better player

    Probably a touch over $5 ($5.2-$5.5?) for 3 years but yes....think anyone will believe me yet that there's no chance we're signing Hughes for the silly $8x3 +/- numbers like some people are suggesting here.


    Honestly, people's understanding of contract comprables, RFA vs UFA years etc is kind of sad on here :lol:


    Personally, I hope we do 6 years for him at +/- $7m to coincide with OEL's contract expiring. Petey at around $7x3 and we can get the season started.

    I want Canada to be together. 

    Work together. 

    Agree to disagree. 

    But make Canada an even more awesome country that it is. 

    Does it have problems? Of course.

    But work together for the common good. A better future, a sustainable future, that our children and grandchildren will thrive. 


    Absolutely. Now how do we get the toddlers throwing tantrums and voting against their own best interests to join the rest of us in doing that?

    Agreed.  I like the idea of O'Toole moving the party towards the centre right.  The volume, power of and reach of the smaller social conservative minority within the party is too dominant though in shaping their policy.


    I'd very much like to see a strong centre right party like similar to Mulroney's 2nd term in which we saw some of the strongest most progressive legislation from any pm of any stripe in Canadian history.  Sure he still spent like a gambler but he helped pave the way for environmental laws, consumption taxes and legislation etc.  


    Until the So-Cons are gone though it's just not possible

    You fix the archaic social stance in the party and you still have to deal with the neo-con 'fiscal conservatism' (corporate socialism and hocking Canadian resources to foreigners for cheap) as well as the abysmal environmental record.

    We vote conservative for the economics not for the social pieces.  No conservative candidate in Saskatchewan campaigns or wins on social(see PPC). The negative reaction I received only shows the bias you have towards western Canadians.

    That's all well and good but those aren't really values of the CPC. They're not 'fiscally conservative', they just believe in socialism for corporations instead of people. Which tends to lead to things you 'righties' care about, actually getting sold off to foreign interests (see the wheat board or the historically mishandled by conservatives oil resources). 


    You guys vote for the 'idea' of a conservative party that doesn't actually exist. It's a mirage, and the reality is actually against your own best interests.


    Never mind their poor record with the environment you seem to care about.

    And who are your calling 'Western Canadians'? I'm guessing I'm further west than you are.

    Bruh, the way BC rolled out the electoral reform referendum in 2018 was criminal. I consider myself an educated person, but that was purposely diluted to dissuade any vote other than "keep the current system".  


    No choice was good. 



    Gotta wonder who benefits from keeping the status quo...

    In your hypothetical, the NDP, Greens, and Liberals would form a government that would crush the Conservatives 10/10 times. Once the BQ and PPC align with the Cons we'd be no better off than our 2 party dip$&!#s to the south. Yay! More tribalism! 


    I prefer parliament to that alternative, even if it means an 8 year swing of Conservative governing 4 years from now.

    We need ranked ballot so badly.

    There's been justified criticism of Trudeau calling this election simply because he thought it was an opportune time for the LIberals.


    But one of the people on tv made a good point.  He said if you're a minority government and are not going to call an election when it suits your purposes then your opponents will.


    If the Opposition parties figured they could have advanced their interests with an early election, does anyone think they wouldn't have forced one?

    Not unless you're blinded by bias and hypocrisy :lol:

    Greens are done, time to disband the party.  They did their thing, they fought for climate change, now every party is on that train, Greens really no longer have a use.  They would be best to probably jump on the NDP or Liberal bandwagon at this stage. 


    Hell PPC over doubled them in votes.

    Yet they have actual seats... Hmm.


    I wasn't aware the environment has been solved already. That's great news!

    A lot of their votes will come in with BC'S results.  They are going to come short for sure.  Unlike the PPC, the Greens will have at least 1 MP.

    Possibly/likely 3 even.

    ^^ that surprises me that the Libs have gained 8 seats so far and the cons have lost 6

    Yeah, it's quite interesting how things are going. Didn't expect this much of a spread this early. Liberals election gamble may have paid off.


    At the very least their platform will be boosted by Canadians clearly showing they don't want the proposed change of the opposition.
