  1. I can't believe how many people did not know what the Kraken is. Its been in a variety of popular movies in recent memory including Pirate of the Caribbean, Clash of the Titans, etc.. Kraken Rum. Its also one the coolest mythical creatures out there. How have people not heard of it?
  2. Not sure how to feel about the logo.
  3. There are already a plethora of amazing concept Kraken logos. I'm partial to the trident with the Kraken tentacle forming the "S".
  4. I want it to be the Seattle Kraken. Such a great brand opportunity. With that said, their teaser video heavily a fishing theme which leads me to expect something along the lines of the Seattle Sockeye. I like Sockeye, but it would be a little underwhelming. They would also share the same color palette as Minnesota. I'd also find it odd that Seattle would name themselves after salmon when Fin eats salmon. Granted, Orca prefer Chinook to Sockeye, but it would still be a lame start to their branding.
  5. If McDavid had remained healthy all season, I would have agreed with you that Panarin wins. But when McDavid went down with injury (again) and everyone was calling that the Oilers would fall to pieces, Draisaitl put in WORK. I think Draisaitl was actually better than McDavid this year, and Draisaitl is the reason the Oilers maintained their playoff position when McDavid wasn't there. I think he wins this handily. I always feel bad for MacKinnon. The guy is such an incredibly consistent talent, but he always seems to just miss out on these awards. He'd be 3rd on my ballot. He should have won it last year.
  6. The biggest problem facing the legal system is the lack of available Judges. For example, in 2019, 10% of the British Columbia Bench was vacant with nine unfilled spots. That is nine Judges that otherwise would be hearing matters that get pushed back years instead. This number has been growing each year as well as the Courts are generally underfunded. Another significant problem is the underfunding of legal aid and other similar services which significantly delay matters as lay-litigants try to find representation. While legal-aid did recently receive an increase in funding, it is still well below market rates. It will be interesting to see what the Courts do with these changes, although my pessimistic side believes that things are going to get worse before they get better.
  7. I'm still skeptical that the play-ins will move forward as I have zero faith in Americans anymore, but here's hoping! I'm happy with our match-up against the Wild. We should win a five game series assuming both teams are playing at the caliber they can. Ultimately this may be a test of which team can get into top-gear fastest given they'll be coming out of a five month slumber directly into meaningful playoff-contention games. If Markstrom comes out in mid-season form and our top-six keeps rolling like they did all season, we should be playoff bound.
  8. Was it really necessary to make three separate threads for your Brock Boeser trade proposals? Couldn't have just made one thread?
  9. The NHL website writers never cease to amaze me at their anti-Canucks bias. Last week I was shocked to see they had listed Markstrom as only the 13th best goalie in the post-season. But now they have put out an article about the top 16 centers in the post-season and Petey didn't even make the list. What kind of mockery of the sport is this?

      The fact that they only mentioned his pending UFA status in Marky's description compared to guys like Bishop leading their teams on playoff runs YEARS ago shows how much depth/ substance (or lack thereof) their posts contain.  Hard to even get mad anymore.

      For the center list, Connor/ Sid/ Mackinnon (top 3 centers in the league without question) Bergeron (elite two-way play speaks for itself)/ Draisaitl (Art Ross winner)/ Malkin (championship pedigree)/ Matthews (Leafs love speaks for itself)/ O'Reilly (can see him getting favored due to last year's championship) are without question above Petey and that's nothing against him.  

      He should belong readily among the likes of Stamkos, Schiefele, Tavares, Barkov, Zibanejad, Toews, Backstrom and Couturier though.  For what it's worth he ranked #18 in the official list behind Aho, and was as high as #11.

      I strongly disagreed with their Markstrom rankings, but I could see a better argument for Petey outside of the top 16. There are a lot of really good centres in the NHL.

  10. The colour scheme on the skate jerseys are gorgeous. The logo it self is atrocious. I think the Orca is actually the best "logo" we've had, although I do like the stick in rink as well. The logo and colour scheme suit the West Coast well.
