  1. Even when treading water in a vast sea of negativity, it only takes a single positive hand to grab on to and pull out.

  2. Michael DiPietro has been traded from the Windsor Spitfires to the Ottawa 67's in what is being called the biggest trade in (the 67's) franchise history.

      Sounds like he oozes character and I like how honest he was saying getting picked by Team Canada is the greatest thing to happen to him so far in his career. 

    3. NUCKER67


      That is an insane return, but it must also speak volumes of how good DiPietro actually is. I agree that it's very possible DiPietro becomes the Canucks goalie of the future. It's a good problem to have: Demko or DiPietro?

      Kid prob gets 80 or 90 games this yr to hone the craft. Nice to see.

  3. Salary cap projected to be about $83M for next season.

      Toronto will have spent that on twelve players lol

      Soon howz'bout Dr Evil for Commish?

      how do i get my piece of that pie?? :P


  4. Go Stars!

    1. Coconuts


      Wooo Dallas

    2. Nuxfanabroad


      HA! Power outage in the COTU.

  5. Apparently Bruce Garrioch believes the Canucks would like to move a defenceman and suggested to keep an eye on Hutton.

      Unless the plan is to move a decent defenseman from another team onto ours this makes zero sense right now.

    3. JM_


      making room for Juolevi maybe? It would get Del Zotto back in regularly (:unsure:) but maybe he plays well enough to be moved at the TDL.


      Has Hutty shown enough to be moved tho?

    4. Nuxfanabroad


      As Cram alluded..that's prob been scuppered.

  6. Looks like Biega and Brisebois have been recalled.

    1. Master 112

      Master 112

      So what are they called now?

    2. Drive-By Body Pierce

      6th and 7th defencemen.

  7. I would like to see a better camera angle on the Jets 2nd goal...looked like it could be offside.

    1. -DLC-


      Yep, I thought so too.  Turning point...

      Totally a momentum changer!!

      TSN's... thingy. point of the thing

  8. Thats gotta be good for Boeser's confidence.

    1. Ghostsof1915


      Wide open Horvat, but Brock was just gonna rip it. 

    2. Curmudgeon


      Both of his goals have been lasers. If that doesn't boost his confidence, I don't know what else will.

  9. Looks like a solid NHL team to me... maybe TSN thinks the 30 other starting goaltenders in the league  are gonna score too?!?!

  10. Hockey withdrawals have firmly set in...regularly refreshing CDC to see absolutely nothing new.

      At least we have a good UFC card this weekend for a free event.  I'm not a baseball fan so summer is rough for sports for me.

    4. Jaku




      Me too bud :(

  11. Okanagan horizons are lit up tonight! Just a reminder, don't do stupid $&!# that could start a big fire!!!

      It's not rocket appliances.

      ok i'll bear it in mind , ...but the only way to start a forest fire here is to drop a water bomber load of gas even then that might not work , it rains a bit here.

  12. Any (non-PS4) Fornite players looking for regular squad-mates?

  13. Just chatted with Ken Hitchcock about the player contract/bonus issues currently going on...apparently he's renting a place in West Kelowna for the summer.

    1. JM_


      neat. I don't imagine he's a fan of it. 

    2. coastal.view


      no worries

      next collective agreement will take care of this issue


      maybe it will place a cap on what % of a contract

      can be allocated to bonuses


      or create some other mechanism to put a drag on them

      like maybe not allowing variance in annual amounts in a contract that contains bonuses (so player has to choose between a big bump at the start of a contract or a bonus structure, but not both)

  15. The team DOES need a new pair of brothers. #Slack4Jack

    1. Jaku


      We should just go for all three Hughes. Have the trio.

    2. Cramarossa



  16. Now we are going to have to listen to the Toronto media and fans all summer...oh I hope they fail somehow.

    1. luckylager


      It's gonna deepen the rift between Matthews and the leafs.

      He's won't like being passed over for Tavares, which is going to happen a lot!


      Drama! Hahaha

      Silver lining! ...thanks buddy!

      oh you have not heard ?

      the salary cap post next lock out

      will be 137 million dollars

      and each time will have 7 compliance buyouts


      kings are not worried at all

    3. Brad Marchand

      Brad Marchand

      Looks like the real crips in LA will be wearing black instead of blue in 2021.

    4. Baer.


      Quick, Kopitar, Martinez and Doughty will all still be great players at that age.

  18. With all the hockey Rah Rah, I a different update... Osuna gets a 75 game suspension for his domestic violence situation.


    I was a big fan before hearing about the initial report quite awhile ago... I hope he gets the help he needs, and this is a big reality check.

  19. Beyond Dahlin and Svechnikov, I anticipate the remainder of the top 10 selections resembling a game of musical chairs.

  20. Canucks preseason game at Prospera Place in Kelowna is already sold out?!?!

    Anyone have a line on tickets somewhere?

    1. Tystick


      Jesus you scared me haha.

      They're not on sale yet so no worries.


  21. So much potential for B.Tkachuk to end up with a rival club to the Flames... I wonder if Brady and Matthew would fight each other in an NHL game? I'm sure they have in the past, at least to some degree.

      Could you imagine if he ended up here - what a Canuck-Flames rivalry would that be :)

    3. Drive-By Body Pierce

      Drive-By Body Pierce

      Awesome! Thanks for that!!!

    4. Jaku


      Haha I was actually thinking about this not long ago. This just makes it all the sweeter. Someone is going to have to keep M. Tkachuk in check when playing the Canucks. Apparently it could be his little brother :lol:

  22. "Sometimes the same is different...but mostly, its the same."

  23. Just saw Juolevi surgery with the team to announce timeline on the TSN ticker...anyone have more detail?

    1. JM_


      I don't know how to link you to my profile but i posted the info there - its a minor procedure, Benning expects him for camp.
