  1. My Mom died tonight

      I’m so very sorry for your loss of her. Losing a parent is hard, I know. It can feel like your life’s anchor or broadest safety net has been lost. Never fear tho. The love stays forever.
       

      Your CDC community is still here for you too & ever growing. Like a mother’s love, it will not disappear, either. Share the memories & hang in there. Hugs to you! - VM

  2. It's a new day and I'm still pissed off.

      ^And I dislike 'em for drafting Draisaitl, who should have become a Canuck.

      One more reason why I dislike the Oilers. They were the impetus for this new, easily manipulated, & un-transparent draft system. In a time of general league parity, misfortune in the man-games lost due to illness or injury is signifigant. Return to the older & more transparent method because a team jumping-up an extra six or seven spots in a draft-order due to some 'are-we-really-to-believe-that-the-numbers-drawn-are-all-random' method....well,it's now become flagrantly outrageous.

  4. So sad to hear of Geroy's wife passing away.  Makes events like yesterday seem so trivial in a big picture way.  Heart felt condolences to the Simon family.

      This is so very sad. The exact circumstances have not yet been revealed. Regardless, this is heart-breaking news & I will keep Geroy & the rest of their family members in my thoughts & prayers.

  5. Mourning the departure of Burrows, today. Godspeed on your way to the Stanley Cup that inexplicably eluded you here. Best wishes, much love & gratitude to you Burr, from Canucks' Nation here & where ever you may find us in VanCity, Ottawa or around the world!

      But the 1st round pick in 2017 would be late in a rather weak draft year,...so is it really a home run? No - not really. I will still miss the Honey Badger like crazy & I think the Canucks will really miss his particular brand of mentorship, too.

      Yah - and just heard that conditional pick for Hansen will be a 1st rounder not a 4th - if the Sharks win the Cup...that makes it very nice indeed. Canucks Nation has to cheer for the Sharks in 2017 now.

  7. Seriously what did Stamkos do to piss off the hockey gods?

    1. viking mama

      viking mama

      ...Or it is good luck for the team, who can attain another top-tier player with the cap space they get back for him being on LTIR. And, as long as Tampa Bay makes the play-offs, which they should,...they will have both for of theys top-tiers available for use when the play-offs arrive.

  8. Loui Eriksson's goal song should be "Louie Louie" by the Kingsmen, a natural choice seeing as he's playing on the triple-crown-line. Can I get an "amen" or another alternative please?

      Waiting to see what DJ does tonight. That's if - I dont lose the back deck & part of my roof along with power tonight. Feeling a guilty about not doing those renos in the off-season, now. :unsure:

      Sorry to hear you need the surgery - but the good news is they want to proceed wth this. There IS something tht can be done and that is wonderful news! Canucks-Nation wants ya here with us healthier & happy, Joe. Vancouver has great heart surgeons. There are technologies to assist them that are phenomenal. You can put your trust in that. 4 months will go by quickly, I had a surgery that took 12 months to recover from,..it is all relative. You've got this, my friend.  All my best to ya!

  12. Hey Jim! Don't want or need Milan Lucic on my Vancouver Canucks,..there's just too much bad history under the bridge and witnessed patterns of behavior in this player that go totally counter to the culture of 'good character'  that I've been proud to support here. Just say 'NO' & let Looch continue to be himself & a diminishing asset elsewhere. Thanks!. 

    1. viking mama

      ^ Looch a Canuck?! It's akin to Messier as a Canuck! Never, ever, should have happened!!! On so many different levels it was a colossal affront to the team, the layers and their entire fan-base. I have embraced former rivals before. Dave "Tiger" Williams, Tim Hunter, Esa Tikkanen,...but some players have history that runs too deep & character too warped to embrace. Messier & Lucic are in that category for me. I would expect Trev to perceive this fact, even if Jimbo can't.

      I'll hold onto my investment in these HOF Sedins & their very generous philanthropic ways to better the conditions of children & their families everywhere...over the oafish behaviors Looch demonstrates on and off of the ice - anyday! Somedays good guys finish 1st. Those victories are the best!! You can have an edge without being an idiot. Gudbranson seems to be that! Looch has simply been entitled for too long to change. Better find himself another league-enabled team to continue his schtick before the progressives take over, post-Bettman, & eradicate his kind altogether.

  14. I give up, their goal counts but ours doesn't..I swear the other night I saw almost the exact goal from another team go in and it counted...I hate this f'n league.

    1. viking mama

      viking mama

      ^Ditto. Only thing more frustratin' was watchin' a BCHL play-off game where the 1st goal of the game & the series was clearly punted in & then green-light by the zebras. They couldn't check out the video-replay because not all rinks have this technology - I presume. The pain of seein' the jumbo-tron show that particular replay over and over again - embarassed the crap out of the officiating crew & frustrated the hell out of fans. Chilliwack Chiefs defeated the Wenatchee Wild 4-.3, thanks heavens! Series continues tomorrow night at the Prospera Centre in Chilliwack at 7pm.

  16. How has Gudas not been suspended for that headshot? Or a few of his other questionable hits this year. 

    1. viking mama

      viking mama

      Ha ha! Easy answer that! Isn't one of the NHL's most infamous hatchet-men & former-Flyer Chris Pronger a key member of the DPS?. Seems that concussion issues haven't given him enough insight or determination to counter his allegiances to players of his ilk,... on his former teams. This DPS is completely seeded with folks ingratiated to the perennial NHL Chairman's Block of traditionalists.They are actually loath to remove drama/ and violence from the NHL game in traditional markets, thus we  role our eyes at all of the 'implied-modelling' in the farcical 'Mark Messier' Leadership Award..instead of a more politically correct or progressive 'Joe Sakic' or 'Steve Yzerman' Leadership Awards.

      Like BanTSN said,...'more like those 'hawks gettin' away with more than any other team...'cept maybe other O-6's & So-Cal teams.

  21. Seems comments by a FLA Panther were not 'sister' or SC/SC-ring related, but something far worse. Post-game fly by the Panther bench & angry-librarian glance at the offender was high-road behavior correction at its best. Perfect response! Poor of  these delusional Sedin-maligners (Potvin) to see it otherwise.

    1. viking mama

      viking mama

      Dosrset went after the Panthers who were squirting their water bottles at the Sedins. How & where did he respond to that later?. He did not respond that way to the media post-game. He definitely should correct himself publicly there too. That'd earn him better points.

      Seems D. Sedin had no words in response. Can't dignify behavior like that with a response to fuel it. He answered in the best way - with his teancity & play on the ice. Won the game, broke their streak. Mitchell & Lu need to have a 'respect the icons of the game' talk with their teammate. The  duffuss may have his name on a Cup,.. but missing the character of a true champion.

  23. After 3 disallowed goals,..Miller's post-game comments were bang-on. Hansen & the Canucks were wronged by the NHL's war room, again. Even with the technologies available, the bias/ subjectivity of cleverly appointed-persons will be awarding or taking-away points in this league.

    1. viking mama

      viking mama

      Not my source...that would be Miller. Do ya trust his evaluation after seeing replays? Just sayin' - that even an anti-Canuck like Kypper has relented on air to say,..in Hansen's case,..it was a goal. The others on the panel were ambivalent. How does the war-room get it wrong. Seeded bias. Asking that they - fix that
