  1. Outrageous! Political Correctness ran amok! Wonder if Tim Pool or Steve Crowder have made videos denouncing the soy-boys who made the decision to restrict our speech, interfere with our traditions as they literally destroy our history. The word 'midget' was never meant to be derogatory at all, this is like a page out of 1984.
  2. So it seems that the GOP and the Trump campaign have settled on their casting choice, they have chosen this guy... to play the role of... I think even Trump fans should admit that its a much harder sell than this...
  3. How about a 100 post limit on this thread? Not sure how easy or difficult that would be to implement but it would be funny. Make clam work for it a little before he is allowed to kiss Trump's rump.

    Chiefs sign Bell. Rich get richer. Ravens need to do something bold, I would sign AB. Lamar needs a legit threat.
  5. Yeah, the last time I saw the buyout numbers, I wasn't impressed. I believe it will get easier to find someone to take him when there is only 1 year left on the contract. After the bonus gets paid, the amount owed should be small enough that a team might take a flyer.
  6. I believe someone stated that he would actually make more money in the AHL by not having to pay escrow. Who knows when an AHL season even starts, I believe it's a venture that relies heavily upon gate receipts which are going to be nil with no fans in the stands. So Loui's proposed punishment could be sitting at home, making more money than he would by playing all while still being a blight on our cap. I don't think that are going be any easy solutions to this, Benning will just have to find someone to take him if not this year then the next.
  7. Two ideological extremes, sort of reminds me of politics, people just pick a corner and never look back. Then they insult and berate people who they don't see as part of their 'clan'. I too no longer see the point in responding to ideologues, its a waste of time. If someone can't be convinced that the Linden Vey trade was a dud or refuses to accept that the Miller trade was a good one, then they likely will make excuses (and refer to it as "context") in every scenario you place in front of them. Tribalism in human beings is such a weakness when it overrides rational thought, it just lessens th
  8. Linden got on board with the plan because that's how he was going to get the job. He knew that the previous guy got turfed for proposing a rebuild. He also wasn't a credible hire for President of Hockey Operations. He had limited experience as a hockey executive, he had spent some time as a union rep but other than that his resume was owning and managing gyms. If he turns down this opportunity, its likely he never gets a shot like this again. Elsewhere he might have to climb the ladder, starting off as assistant or in scouting and working his way up hockey ops. Look at how long it took for Ben
  9. It really depends on what you classify as 'work'. Lil Kim is a hardworker as well so much so that he likes to personally supervise the executions that he orders, seeing your aunt die from aircraft artillery must work up an appetite.
  10. I put the decision to continue with the old core more on Aquilini than on Linden and Benning due to events preceding their hiring. Gillis went to Aquilini with a plan to rebuild, Kesler who wanted out at the time, was supposed to have been dealt to Anaheim at the deadline for a package of futures. Per Botchford, Aquilini nixed that agreement and fired GIllis, he then hired Linden with a mandate to retool the team around the Sedins. Kesler instead of going for futures brought in a couple of replacement players in Bonino and Sbisa, who were supposed to fill the positions that Garrison and Kesler
  11. Earlier in the year I was going to make a thread title it 'crossroads' and ask people if they would rather prefer signing Markstrom, Toffoli and Tanev or Virtanen, Demko and Stecher. I thought at the time (and still do today) the latter gave us a better shot to win long term. Despite how encouraging the team's performance was, we also saw the current team max out, Petey and Hughes are going to get better but that isn't going to make the veteran depth pieces around them any younger. Signing more aging players to long term contracts was simply not feasible considering our cap predicament. If Ben
  12. I don't follow JD Burke's musings on Twitter either, these are all just random people to me. I wouldn't mind borrowing material from them when they make a good argument or post a GIF. Heck I have no problem giving you a +1 when you I agree with you either, doesn't mean I like you or endorse your entire existence. It doesn't sound like you aren't on Twitter, you seem way too plugged into who these people are and the history of their 'takes'. I on the other hand just don't give a hoot. I have not initiated any conversation into Gudbranson's looks. To put it into hockey con
  13. No idea who Ken is but he seems like he has a weak stomach. Why would you base your vote on what strangers said to you online? Were your feelings that badly hurt? Also the "I voted for Hillary" can only be described as virtue-signaling. Of course I am just going off what he has posted. Sounds like Ken just needs to get off of Twitter.
  14. No idea who that is, I am not on Twitter. I just searched for "Gudbranson" & "lost" and that was the first GIF I found. Seemed to encapsulate his play as a Canuck, atrocious until the whistle sounded and there was a scrum. The rest of it seems like projection on your part. I posted a GIF. You are doing some weird psycho-analysis in order to deflect from the subject, your obsession with Gudbranson. I am far from the only poster in this thread who sees it. Gudbranson sucks, sorry man but its time to move on. He isn't coming back, no matter how hard your heart throbs for him.

    Why not fire O'Brien before he traded one of the team's best players for a 2nd round pick? Either he was your long term GM/coach at that point or not. Watson should ask for a trade, at the rate they are going they will waste his prime.
  16. Here is a few more one-liners. I got my wish, I don't get to see Gudbranson on the Canucks. Although its truly a shame to see him leave the division. A frequent highlight from Gudbranson, he is a pylon until the whistle sounds and the scrum begins. Then he will ragdoll some guy and people will forget all about him being completely lost while on the ice. I still remember the first game after his extension, I was so bummed after that one knowing that I would have to watch this guy play in a Canucks jersey for 3 &^@#ing more years (I forget but I believe the Canucks blew a 4-1 lead
  17. Both Montreal and Ottawa are beefing up their blueline likely because they see the giants that the Lightning have assembled on their blueline. The difference is that the Lightning have actual gamers, they aren't taking a flyer on EG.
  18. Open and shut case of cyber-bullying. I suggest contacting your local authorities, here is a template on what to say. Trust me I know, I have experience dealing with cyber bullies. 'I am a middle-aged man who keeps getting harassed for my views by a rabid group of forum posters. They keep saying mean stuff to me even though I have asked them to stop multiple times. Here I am minding my own business but some bully from Rupert just can't stop contradicting me. Its very annoying, please send help ASAP!'
  19. Complaining about it won't make him stop. You got to punch back like the greatest Predisent of all time Donald J. Trump, the First of his name, King of Goobers, Defender of the Confederacy, Owner of Libs, Hero of Stormfront, Idol of the KKK, Proud Proud Boy... In his name we fight!
  20. Q has already confirmed that the fly wasn't really a fly but a Deep State micro-drone, a convenient distraction to the viewing public to derail the VP's thoughtful and poignant answer on systemic racism and police brutality. Of course all the posters who have been plugged in on Q have been banned, coincidence? I think not.
  21. There have been so many terrible incompetent GMs in hockey history that a fan could have easily been given the position and not do any worse. For ex. the prerequisite to becoming GM of the Edmonton Oilers was being a professional ass kisser to Daryl Katz. That isn't an exception, the NHL is every bit an old boys club, change is slow to say the least. Which news site? In order to publish an article in a professional publication or a major news media network you will need to acquire credentials. They don't just let random bloggers and internet posters post there. Suppose you were to able
