  1. OP seems like a pretty obvious trolljob, but I have to admit I see kids with that exact attitude all the time when I am hiring for office positions. Long story short, a lot of degrees, business, communications, liberal arts, are basically participation awards given out by Universities, they mean less than nothing. I would honestly rather just hire someone who had worked after high school, at least they might be able to accomplish something at work. The one thing these degrees do get you is that you won't have to work fast food, gas stations, restaurants, that's really it, if you want anything more than that you will need to put in the time and effort to develop a real skillset, not just memorize what a bunch of poorly written texts tell you about very basic topics under ideal conditions that never apply to the real world. The only time I would be impressed with anyone having such a degree would be if they were working full time while going through University, and even then only if the work they were doing is relevant to what I want them to do.
  2. Huge congrats to AV/RB for making the finals!

  3. On a team that is an offensive legend, Gaunce is still a top 6 point producer for the forward group, even though he only joined the team halfway through the season.
  4. Any politician can be ended with a single bullet. I don't think its a matter of being able to fight the military with a bunch of armed citizens, but the idea that if the gov't went rogue the citizenry would have the tools to assassinate those in charge. Not that I feel the citizens really need to be worried about the gov't going rogue, but I don't think the size/power of the US military has anything to do with whether or not guns give citizens some measure of security against their gov't.
  5. Bo wears 53 in honour of Ian Jenkins, a teammate who died during Horvat's time with the Knights. Given that, the Canucks will absolutely allow him to wear 53. http://thecanuckway....-jersey-number/

    https://twitter.com/...529699247259648 Strange, maybe Polasek wants to go to Europe? He looked decent in his first year pro, not sure what happened after that.
  7. Lack is far and away the better backup. Was Schneider more talented and better at goaltending? Absolutely. However, Schneider was about as interested in being our backup as Messier was interested in being our captain. Is this bad? No. Schneider wanted to be a starter, and is good enough to be an elite starter, nothing wrong with that. Similarly, Messier is a HoF guy who was loyal to our rivals, understandable he could have cared less about being the captain of our squad. One thing this particular comparison highlights is just how awesome it is that Schneider acted which such grace and class in this situation, Messier was a disaster. Both were in a situation where they were picked for a role, and then after settling in decided they had no interest in that role whatsoever, yet each handled that situation completely differently, you have give to Schneid's a ton of props for that.
  8. Thank you for doing this! The other thread sucked so much compared to the old 'Injuries and Ice Chips' threads.
  9. Two people get drunk and fight each other, there is no reason whatsoever to assume one is more guilty than the other. We have yet to hear anyone else's perspective, Lucic doesn't magically become the victim just because what he says ends up in the news. Unless we have evidence that Lucic was minding his own business and got attacked, we have to assume he was just as much of an instigator as the other guy. What we do have evidence of, is that Lucic simply cannot handle the fact that a few people don't like him. His ego is such that he feels the need to blame an entire city for what a few people do. I've certainly met dbag clubber types who act like idiots, and then when that behaviour gets them in fights they act like everyone else is against them. You will never, I mean NEVER, hear about the Sedins in this type of situation. They are hated, they were the league's "sisters" for how many years, and yet this never happened and will never happen. Burrows is hated, so is Kesler, why doesn't it happen to them? Ever heard of Patrick Kane getting in fights in Vancouver? Nope. This type of thing can sometimes happen to innocent people, absolutely, but when it happens over and over to the same person then it is a sign that the person involved is part of the problem themselves. This type of thing surrounds Lucic everytime he is here, clearly he is encouraging it.
  10. Congrats Utica Comets, for beating the #1 team in their conference twice in a row. That should give our boys some confidence!

  11. Space sharks are from space.

  12. Just push your friend's arguments back at him, if he really is preaching in the manner you describe, it should be easy. friend "Can you believe some people think the Earth is billions of years old?" you "It is, science says so" friend"But the bible says..." you "Science says the bible is wrong" friend "how can you say that?" you "Its science, it can't be wrong"
  13. Does the game start at 4 or the retirement ceremony start at 4?

      Bure's contribution was the feeling that something special could happen every time he touched the puck.

      My canucks calander says the game starts at 4:30pm.

  14. I don't mind the Kassian suspension... so long as the league gives everyone else the same treatment, if this is just a message sending suspension its ridiculous
