  1. The media bias is really obvious.

    Not much of a peep about Vancouver, but Toronto's minor signings get attention. LOL.

      The telecommunications monopoly in Canada is ridiculous.

      @Jimmy McGillPublicly? Hollyburn a private club. My understanding is that the vaccines were intended for members only. They tried to use their pull to get their local pharmacy to divert vaccines to their club. It was not like the pop-ups that were open to the public. 

       

      Happy to change my mind if they tried to get the pharmacy to administer vaccines at their club while opening the club up to all persons... I'm just not sure that was the case. It sounds like rich people trying to find a way to get their vaccines sooner than others, including those in need. It happened during a time where vaccines were in shorter supply than they are now/were in the last while.

      Won't be involved in decisions about player personnel, etc., but still seems like a scumbag.

  6. Province of Ontario to allow over 500 Frontline Healthcare workers to the Leafs game tonight because they'll need all that first aid knowledge when the Leafs choke yet again.

  9. Bringing back a "game"/ discussion, Sign 2, Trade 2, Waive 2.  At their current contracts and stages in their careers, who are you assigning to each option and why?


    Bobrovsky, Jeff Skinner, Erik Karlsson, Matt Murray, Ryan Johansen, Matt Duchene.

    1. Down by the River

      Down by the River

      Signing Karlsson and Murray, Waving Bob and Skinner. Trading Johansen and Duchene.

       

      Karlsson and Murray have both won. Murray still relatively young and contract isn't awful compared to most. Karlsson could be good on a team where he doesn't have to play 28 minutes a night and risk injury. Bob and Skinner simply the poorest contract value. Johansen and Duchene maybe provide the best return but both those guys seem to be part of teams that don't get over the hump.

      @Petey_BOI Wasn't the Humboldt bus crash also a result of a driver driving over his allotted hours?

       

      Taxis and trucks are super shady in Vancouver in terms of the person who is behind the wheel not being the person that is supposed to be behind the wheel.

  11. It seems this years draft has no true #1 ?! Thoughts ?

    1. Down by the River

      Down by the River

      Agreed. I was tracking draft-eligible guys in the prospect tracker thread...

      ...From September until now I'd say there have been 3-4 guys listed as the top prospect within the same media outlets (e.g., even within specific outlets, reporters/scouts are changing their opinion on who is #1).

  12. Hughes is projecting to be a more skilled Keith Yandle, which isn't a bad thing.

    1. Down by the River

      Down by the River

      Yandle doesn't care. That's why he hasn't figured it out over 15 years. Hughes will be a different story.

  13. I knew it all along. We should have drafted David Pastrnak instead is Jake. No one would listen. I should be the GM.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    This is a joke for the people who take things to seriously. 

  14. Would you rather have Nylander, Tkachuk and Glass (Consensus Picks) or Virtanen, Juolevi and Pettersson (Benning Picks)?

    1. Down by the River

      Down by the River

      Pettersson > Tkachuk

      Virtanen < Nylander

      Juolevi < Glass

       

      The magnitude of difference between Tkachuk and Pettersson is smaller than the gap between the other two pairs.

  15. Why do Calgary Fans obsess over the Canucks.  Over on Calgary Schmuck. com their most active thread right now is about the Canucks, it has 600k views. LOL.

      I mean, why do Canucks fans actually look at Calgary Puck? Maybe those views are from Canucks fans constantly caring about what others think.

      The Canucks' second goal was scored with the following on the ice:

       

      Loui - Granlund - Megna

      Guddy - Hutty

       

      Woof.

  18. The media reports there is no evidence of voter fraud. If someone comes up with some evidence and the election is over turned, how would you react?  Would you accept it? This is all hypothetical. Intended to be a conversation.

      My favorite trend on CDC is when certain posters start getting ignored/picked on in a certain thread and so they start taking their hot takes to status updates instead.

      Bure in 96 was so wrong, but generally speaking 90s are great and like 96 on Gaud.

  21. Nicklas Jensen has a PPG in KHL and almost a goa per game. 

     

    1. Down by the River

      Down by the River

      @Drakrami Not really. Finding examples of guys that did will in the KHL doesn't mean that all guys that do well in the KHL will transfer to the NHL. Doing well in the KHL is like doing well in the AHL. It is necessary to have a good NHL career but it is not sufficient. There is a laundry list of KHL names that couldn't cut it in the NHL despite lighting it up over there. Jensen is never coming back.

  22. I thought CDC was a public forum where all are welcome.  Didn't realize that some threads are only for those with the same ideals.  In other words, unless you're a bully and loathe Trump, do NOT post in that thread.

    1. Down by the River

      Down by the River

      I think CDC needs to play a game where a random status update is posted and everyone is asked to vote on whether it was written by a passive aggressive teenager... or Heretic. 

       

      Also, why on Earth would you believe CDC is a public forum?

      @Squamfan has the equivalent of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Like, how can someone occupy this much of your mind. Its a god damn hockey team. That's all. And yet like 50% of your thoughts relate to Jim Benning. It is pathetic.
