  1. am i the only one that wants to see 3 balanced scoring lines? petey and boeser; horvat and garland and miller and podkolzin.

    that is my wish.

    1. J.I.A.H.N


      You know Joe


      I really want to see a shut down line that does not include Horvat


      But, of course if they could score also, that would be a bonus.....


      and probably necessary.


      So, yes sure!

      Joe let's see some goals. If they could have three legit lines that would be cool.  Go Canucks Go.

  2. how much actual cap space do the canuck's have? i think term isthe sticking point.
  3. maybe it's because the majority of my life is memories, that i love harry nilsson's( remember) plus his wonderful voice.

      Yup.  Great talent. I prefer the Glenn Campbell cover of Nilsson’s “Everybody’s Talkin’”.  It’s got the Campbell country twang. 

  4. if they have 14mil in cap, give them bot6h 7 mil with 6 yrs for qinnn, and 3 yrs for petey..
  5. some people say they can remember events when they were 2 years old. what is your earliest memory?

      jan, we got milk at school too but i can't remember having to pay for it. i remember, that if you got in line soon enough you got a choice between white orchocolate milk. it was called vico milk. we kept the lids and played a game with them.

      mudge, i remember the ice trucks and grocery wagons and tar trucks. we would ride the street cars. i remember going to the pantages theater and watching vaudville before the movies. i loved seeing the mechanical christmas displays in eaton's windows.

      Looking at my newborn baby sister in her crib at the end of the bed at my Grandmother's house in Vancouver... She was 6 weeks old and I was only 19 months older... so 20 1/2 months old...I may be part elephant! :lol:

  6. when i was a kid we had a player piano and we had a zither and the first two picture books produced in vancouver. charlemagne is my ancestor.
  7. as a really old coote, i'ld want music that took me to paradise. probably movie or show tunes. orchestral or big band. far from heavy metal, rap, opera, or loud music. hey, i'm old.
  8. i know dickenson is good defensively, but where do his offensive skills lie? playmaker, scorer or energy guy?

      From the highlights and reading about him, it sounds like Dickinson is an opportunistic goal scorer, often finding soft spots in the middle of the ice. Isn't really a great distributor of the pick as often its his wingers that set him up.


      He does however, seem to find himself in good spots to scored, but a criticism was that he often whiffed on shots. So sounds like he could improve on his execution on shots too. However, he spent a lot of time with Tyler Seguin, Mattias Janmark or Jamie Benn who naturally would have the puck on their stick.


      Who knows, perhaps with him being the main QB on the line (depending who he is deployed with) we may see him carry the puck more.

      he's about to set a personal best in assists setting up Podkolzin book it

      I think Dickenson can score at least 30 with his line mates. Pod/Hog/Pearson two of those would make the line a hardworking and hard to play against line. Especially if both Pod and Hog are on that line, endless motors for days.

  9. maybe we should all be mocked and made to feel small so we know what it feels like. i don't think i'ld like it. like ripples in a stream, louie's family and love ones feel the results of the mockery. i thought we were better than that.
  10. good luck louie. you gave what you had. thank you
  11. i'ld like to see 5/6 year deals for both. 7mil each. then both sides win.
  12. i chose the naslund trade but the boudrias trade gave us great dividends as well.
  13. is this the day the boys sign their new contracts?

      That raises an interesting question. Vintage seems to know about Canucks news as soon as it happens, which means he may know before hand. 


      If he knows when you're signing, does he know before you do? Are any of us truly sentient or are we simply dancing like marionettes for Vintage?

      @Coconuts I believe VC is Francesco Aquilini.  He is keeping my contract talks very secretive.  So secretive that I don't even know myself what is going on...

    4. Coconuts


      I've floated the idea that Vintage is management, so that's not really a stretch! 

  14. i say 6x7.5. hopefully living on 7.5 mil a year isn't too much of hardship.
  15. i keep reading that ferland's contract is unisurarred. please, what does this mean?

      i was just wondering if his 3.5 mil contract can be used to help sign petey and quinn? if he is uninsured, can they use his ltir to sign others?

    3. King Heffy

      King Heffy

      Yes, they can still use the LTIR.

    4. Ghostsof1915


      Conspiracy time.

      If he's not covered by insurance.

      Then is he technically not injured?

  16. our d would look better with bahl and smith holtz up front and a ist pick.
