  1. I'm hoping they pick Loui. Maybe we can showcase how well he played elsewhere or maybe put some ribbons and bells on him to make him more appealing. If they don't take him it will suck, but that's the nature of expansion drafts, they're likely going to pick someone that we want to keep. We just need to get this over with as quickly as possible and move forward building a winning team. Go Canucks Go! P.S. - I hate the Las Vegas Golden Knights about as much as Bettman loves them.
  2. I'll take a cup please. I can handle 11 losing seasons after that. Heck, I've been a Canucks fan for 50 years and most of those have been losing seasons (or at least it feels like it - I didn't actually check). It would have been much more easy to bear with a cup in hand. In fact, I think I read somewhere recently that all tolled the Canucks have the worst win-loss record in the entire league. And yet we still have a solid fan base. Or in other words I don't think the economic viability of the team is in jeopardy here. Of course the team will make some more money with a winning team but
  3. In the playoffs, it's better to be on the giving end than the receiving. Go Canucks Go!
  4. I think that we need to be more aggressive during the season. That and we need to be looking under all the rocks all the time (i.e. we need to draft well and spend wisely on FAs). Go Canucks Go!
  5. So by that reasoning every team that has a losing record MUST fire their coach or they're being stupid? Yes, win-loss is an important stat but there are other things to go by as well. I want the Canucks to win as much as anybody but I think Green does too. I'm OK with the extension. This season was a weird one and I think everyone who cares about the Canucks is disappointed but I'm prepared to give the team a mulligan (just this once, cough, cough). Let's see what next season brings. Optimism isn't the only ingredient for winning either but it does help. Go Canucks Go!
  6. That sure was a late hit on Highmore, what 5-10 seconds after the whistle. GCG!
  7. Does anyone watch online on Bila Sport? If so, I'm wondering if others keep getting their stream interrupted by Tila Sport? What's up with that? What are they and where did they come from? That aside Canucks are actually playing pretty well considering how many regulars are out. If I can watch for more than 5 minutes without getting interrupted. Go Canucks Go!
  8. Change is inevitable. Growth is optional. Go Canucks Go!
  9. It depends on the context. Sure, sometimes a GIF or a picture can add something so yes I overstated it. But in this case it was just an obvious attempt to aggravate me (especially the second one). Anyway, it's not such a big deal. It's just that the tankers really annoy me because I'm an athlete myself and I would never ever take my foot off the pedal just to get a slightly better draft pick, and if any of my teammates did I'd be pretty pissed off. It's not professional. And even if one isn't a pro, it's still an insult to everyone involved not to try one's hardest to win all the time.
  10. Tanking is always moronic IMHO. Winning is never a bad option. It's in fact the only goal of any sport or game. I'd fully support winning out the season and snuffing out the Flames. If not, what are we here for? Are we fans of the draft (i.e. the business side of things) or fans of hockey? Go Canucks Go!
  11. Me neither, to be honest. I'm just playing along for fun. Go Canucks Go! BQ: See above.
  12. I want Green and Clark back. They should replace Baumgartner and Brown as far as I'm concerned. Go Canucks Go!
  13. Meh. I like Hoglander and I would have liked to see him get a hat-trick but all this hate on Green just because he didn't get one doesn't make any sense. It's dog pile on Green day I suppose. GCG! P.S. - Here at CDC we can't be happy for a win, we just have to find something to be upset about.
  14. Always go for the win. It's never meaningless. GCG!
  15. The Stanley Cup should NOT have an asterisk this year. It will be just as difficult to win as ever (maybe even more so considering the condensed schedule and all the other unique challenges of this year). If we had been in the running for the cup this year would you still think it was somehow lessened? Would you not celebrate a win? I certainly would. There is always an excuse to flush the current season and look forward to the next but we have to make sure that we don't look forward to next year, next year. It's not really a healthy pattern. The current season and the current game at
  16. This is what we get from a bunch of clowns in suits who run the league and make millions from selling a product called "sports entertainment" instead of people who actually love the once real sport of hockey. Both the refereeing and the supplemental discipline are a complete joke and makes the entire NHL look like amateur hour. Maybe people don't notice that kind of crap in markets where they don't know hockey but for us real hockey fans it's quite disturbing and it's been getting worse and worse over time. We all love the tough side of the game, that's not the issue, it's the blatant favor
  17. AI still has to be programmed by someone. It might even make it easier for the crooked NHL to monkey with the outcomes. GCG!
  18. Is it the team because of the fans, or is it the fans because of the team? Go Canucks Go!
  19. I don't care about our draft position right now. I just want to salvage some pride with a win or two. And I'm willing to bet a lot of money that most of the players feel the same way (or at least they should). Tanking is just plain moronic at any time. The whole point of playing a game, any game, is the attempt to win. Anything other than the Canucks trying their best to win is a waste of their time and ours. Go Canucks Go!
  20. That's kind of strange point of view. At least for me. It sounds to me like saying to a co-worker "stop working so hard, you're making others look bad". I've never really liked that sentiment. People should do as much as they want to do and others shouldn't be annoyed or jealous. I like Vintage's posts and he can post as many as he likes as far as I'm concerned. I don't think he's being a prima donna, just posting lots of good info. GCG!
  21. Typical Canuck luck: by some quirk of the rules, the Oilers get two short power plays on one penalty and they end up scoring on both of them. This time it isn't incompetent refereeing, just a weird situation where you start four-on-four, then get a second penalty, they score quickly on the four-on-three, the shorter penalty gets cancelled, they get a second power play when the original penalty expires when by all rights they should only get one powerplay if they score a goal, but that's the way the rules work, and then they score again. All on one penalty (well one additional penalty but you
