  1. Everywhere I turn I see analysts saying Vancouver missed the playoffs, I hope they are wrong.

      I think I saw some report recently saying he wants to sign with an American team.

  3. New Montreal Canadiens signee Arber Xhekaj is now on the all time names list and if he makes the NHL, he'll be the first player with a last name that starts with an X.

      Do you study Quantum Physics? or maybe R&D or something?

  4. Why is October the 10th month and not the 8th…

      Originally, or at least previously, the Roman calendar started in March, and at some point the Roman Senate changed it to where January was/is the first month. I believe it was changed to somehow avoid interfering with some religious ceremony or ceremonies.

  5. Putting an offer on a home is an awful process. Either someone outbids you or you are left questioning whether you offered more than what it is worth.

      You can take solace in the fact that it is a luxury problem.

  6. I'm not going to hold my breath but hoping today's CT scan reveals the source of my chronic insomnia.

    1. Drive-By Body Pierce

      Good luck. I too struggle with insomnia, likely as part of depression and anxiety issues. But, I also notice alcohol makes a substantial impact when I have fallen off the wagon. Currently I wake up at 2am like clockwork, and then spend the next 4 or 5 hours building up anxiety about how I'm going to be tired all day. Other times it has more of an N24-circadian-type effect where the time falling asleep and waking up continuously tick forward each day until they wrap around the clock.

       

      Modafinil has been a godsend for when I am tired and/or falling asleep during the day. Perhaps something worth looking into for yourself?

  10. So I just got my election ballot in the mail. I get to actually write in the candidate's name. 

    So I can actually write Spider-Man or Thor as my choice!

     

    FREEDOM!

      Both of which are better choices than any registered candidate!

  15. Anyone know any good jobs that involve travel?

      ...or a travel agent! Learning what you are selling is always important.

      A common option is your own online sales and marketing gig. There are certainly countless direct seller companies/groups to join where you can work from wherever you have an internet connection. A lot of how they market whatever they're doing is just the lifestyle of being always able to travel and working your own hours.

  17. What would the Canucks be able to get back in a Tanner Pearson trade?

    1. Drive-By Body Pierce

      Another player roughly equivalent to Tanner Pearson?

  19. What are the odds, JB has 1 more UFA player to sign? If EP40 and quinn Hughes sign dueling 8*8 that gives us 1.1 million left over. That could let us sign Glendening to a 1 year 1.1 million contract? 

     

    I would be really happy with our PK if it was

    and it would give our 4th line

      Three players have to be sent down already, 2.25M minimum (could be more depending how on who is sent down) + 10.66M gives 12.91M to sign without using LTIR. If they stay below, they are just adding to the 3.5M they can put on LTIR whenever they want/need. With that, or even if they do end up using LTIR, signing a player now is just adding someone to sit in the press box building up rust or be buried in the minors not getting NHL experience.

       

      I'd much rather add a player through trade, that addresses a specific need when it arises, and that has been consistently playing at the NHL level through the season instead of the rotating door of sub-NHL talent. 

       

      I'm sure the Aqualinis also love the idea of adding more unused NHL salary for the entire season.

      @Petey_BOI Not every injured player qualifies for LTIR. And, injuries aren't the only reason for the space. A player could leave for personal reasons, or just suck for some reason.

       

      Further, when in LTIR space, the team cannot accrue cap space. Staying below the cap means the extra space adds up on a daily basis. So, 1M of cap space on day 1 can be 3M of cap space at the 3/4 mark of the season. Signing an extra player now all but guarantees that the Canucks will be in LTIR space.

       

      Then there is the issue of position. Sign a forward now, and that's not going to help if there are issues on defence or in the crease.

       

      So yeah, thinking ahead and saving can get you somewhere. But, if JB thinks additional help is needed now, he'll get it.

      I think saving any additional cap space to address specific in-season injuries or other necessary upgrades or changes would be the better idea. If it's still there at the deadline, then yeah, use it all. But just spending the cap space now for the sake of spending it could come back to haunt the team later.

      @-DLC- I know! There were animal rescues being evacuated last night asking for help with transport, which was/is making me feel sick. Sadly, I don't have access to any vehicle to help. :(
