  1. When all is said and done Jim will have drafted the top 5 players in the history of this organization. Not a single one with a lotto pick either. ( yea I'm exaggerating a bit but Brock Petey Quinn Demmer hoggy ARE FRANCHISE PLAYERS) If you're shortsighted and huffing and puffing over 1 year left on Beagle Loui Roussel, then you probably aren't at peace. I'd recommend psilocybin to find some peace within your minds in hopes of it becoming less disgruntled and pessimistic. Spread love. Be kind.
  2. Why not? I think that's a pretty modest prediction... It's tough to say before we see how the off season pans out, but any team with this many young franchise quality players can compete for a cup under normal circumstances... We were on fire before covid hit our entire roster. I'm guessing 3rd or 2nd in the division followed by a cup run assuming Sekeres is once again proven to be north Korean propaganda and Jim Benning stays at his rightful helm. Long live the king! Long live his highness Jim Benning!
  3. Would be 0% surprised if we win every game from here on in and ruin that lotto spot lol! Typical Canonks fashion End of the day the nhl isnt handing us a lotto tho... Doesn't matter how low we finish. I trust that Jim doesn't care, he'll win the draft regardless of where we pick. His specialty is winning drafts after being pushed down 3 spots
  4. Say what u want... But all those naysayers saying we won't make playoffs kinda feel silly now eh Last I checked the coilers are in the playoffs... And NHL playoffs started today... Today we spanked the coilers... Add those together... Therefore we are 1-0... Undefeated in the playoffs! Cup or bust! (jokes aside cup will be ours next year)
  5. Illusion Was it criss angel or David Blaine who man handled the Stanley Cup champion Blues in 6? Or was the Canucks first line: Angel Houdini Blaine? Musta got lucky to beat cup Champs in 6... And also the wild were on fire under their new coach. They were probably one of the strongest teams that got eliminated. Vegas came down to the 3rd period of game 7... But yea they out shot us lots... Our PP really let us down when Reaves took the 5 min major. Otherwise we in the west final and who knows SCF? Last playoffs was not an illusion my friend. Sorry we got the deadliest covid variant unlike anything any NHL team has experienced in the history of the sport. Canucks for cup 2022
  6. This exactly. John Shannon just said on Donnie & Wally how 95% of people don't think it's a bad organization and would love to be here... So yea it's just the trolls that see the world as a half empty glass that are projecting their nonsense negative thoughts and pretending to be fans Things went wrong this season... We were finally starting to play well, even without Petey until we got hit with a vicious virus... No team in the history of hockey has ever had such a widespread virus amongst them. The fact that the Canucks came out and worked Tarrana first two games shows how glorious our future will be. We went on a stellar run last year and there will be more of it to come starting next year.
  7. Yea man I'm with u... Media pretending like they won the cup hahah Way too much... Super soft call to put them up 2 man... It's like the refs shadowed and made sure mcsofty got calls his way all year long. 4-1 goal the night we spanked him. He almost clotheslined Nate after he drop passed to Leon... No call. I was loling tbh... Reminded me of JBL finishing move from WWE days... Can't believe he didn't get called for it. This is hockey not wrestling Then last night JT interference call when mcdavid ran into him... So soft. It's clear the league has sent a message to the refs to make it as easy for mccdeyvid as possible.
  8. What's there to be positive about? Oilers won the cup last night right (based on how hard they were celebrating) ? I guess we should congratulate the oilers? Konner MckDaveed was celebrating as if he won the cup last night LOL empty arena, fake crowd noise, I'm not sure if they could have celebrated longer... I never cheer against Canadian teams... End of the day, they bring joy to Canadians across our glorious nation. But watching the oilers get swept will be nice this year. It's ok oilers fans. Just keep pretending u won the cup last night lol! Canucks future is bright. Nothing to be upset about. Oh no, missed the playoffs cuz our entire roster got the deadliest covid varient known to man kind! Canucks > coolers 24/7/365 lol
  9. Wow nice pick by mcdavid on shmidt... Lol brutal... How is it not interference? Change the rules for McDonald?
  10. I've been eying GBLC... current price of 13 cents seems like a bargain... Not sure I know enough about the company to jump in though
  11. Lol and life sucks right? Do you also think they putting tracking devices in the vaccines to track u?... Brutal post man. SMH. This group earned everything and was 1 period away from the West final... We saw THREE thrilling series and from all that excitement and amazing games, during a lockdown, you somehow turn it into a bad thing and say we got lucky to get in? That series against minny pushed the team to the limits. Dominated but made it go game 7? Looolololol Bad post amigo.
  12. So I yolo'd another chunk into NUMI... Even though I had already put in 8% of my portfolio lol... Now around 20% Super bullish. Vancouver company with an incredible team driving change in mental health treatment. Hoping to be a 10 bagger come 2022. Shares still on sale from the $1.25 Canaccord paid for 40 mill worth... Currently 1.05 Both the founders had major mental health issues and were not seeing improvement via traditional big pharma... Payton, the founder, was being hospitalized constantly too... Until he tried alternative treatments... (I can relate too, but not to Paytons extent) Anyways numinus to the moon. Check em out Www.numinushealth.ca
  13. Given how everything is backwards this year, I totally expect us to spank the maple laughs after the sens spanked us... Makes sense. 12-0 Canucks To the moon!
  14. Pretty bad effort and overall performance... This was a bad one for sure lol Some highlight reel Demmer stops at least? Sens > Maple Laughs imo
  15. You lost me at 7 years. Jim took over and was told to try to win. Our rebuild didn't start right away. We had to let the Sedins get one last crack. It was out of respect to the two greatest athletes that ever wore our colours. We tried and we failed. Our rebuild got a little delayed and the NHL kicked Jim in the groin at EVERY DRAFT. Knocked him down 3 spots every year and yet he still managed to win those drafts. Jim has everything on course. You're comparing to your fantasy world where the Canucks drafted 1st and 2nd overall superstars like the pens and hawks and rebuilt a little faster. I criticize the team or certain players... But to criticize Jim shows you're not well and can't see all the good he's done given the card he was dealt.
  16. No I'm perfectly well. Happy and positive... Really nice day If you're not feeling well mentally I'd recommend... Numinus health... $100 million vancouver mental health company... Another reason to love this city! Check out their site. Super easy booking process too as of yesterday You have no right to criticize a gm that has brought us so much talent... Petey, Quinn, Hogz, Brock, Demmer all without a single lotto pick. Be positive. If this was a workplace and you continued with your nonsense bashing of your general manager, you'd be fired.
  17. I agree, people should express opinions... As long as they are valid. This is not a valid one. At this point, given what everything Jim has done for us LONG TERM, it's simply not a valid opinion. Its just nonsense that causes distress in the fan base and is toxic. This would apply the same to a work place... So why would we ignore it and be toxic Neanderthals when it comes to the team we love?! Jim has put together the most stacked group of young talent we've EVER HAD... BY FAR! it's not even close... Our glorious Sedins weren't popping off their first year's entering the league... Our ICONIC West Coast Express wasn't popping of either at 20 21 years old... The closest we had to superstars from early on was linden and Bure combo... But they didn't have such a stacked supporting cast that Jim's built Jim's drafted superstars when he's had NO BUSINESS doing so. Not a single lotto pick and you probably out here confident that you can manage the cap better on Xbox? You shouldnt be so short sighted over 1 year left on Erikson deal when u have a plethora of superstars to look forward to for the next decade. In Wallstreet words Aquaman is holding Jim Benning with diamond hands and he's taking us to the moon. Disclaimer I've never owned any crpyto but doge makes me chuckle so I share for smiles If someone makes a Hoge coin I will buy tho. Hoge all day Hoge all night!
  18. This is brutal... I'm sorry but I've been banned / suspended for far less than this. You're lucky I'm not a mod otherwise I'd be throwing down ban hammer for any anti Jim nonsense. It's absolutely gutless to sit behind a computer and just spread nonesense when you're clearly misinformed and just pounding alarm bells because something in your life is agitating you. I say this with love... Get a life, go out and smell the roses... Don't start your day with such wasteful thoughts If you think he's not a good gm you probably should play less NHL 21 on Xbox
  19. Growing up lots of street hockey but sadly never on ice. Was always intimidated growing up and we weren't well off financially... As I got older our situation got better but even the public skates my mom or sister would take me too I could never get over the fear of falling over. I also hit my growth spurt super late and was pretty frail... Overall just scared for no reason (anxiety) At 25 (4 years ago) I was financially comfortable and more confident with less anxiety so I figured buy everything and go all in. Now I play as much as possible. Was getting 5-6 ice times a week until covid hit... No game better. Can't wait to give my children every opportunity to play from the start (one day... I'm still far from having kids lol... Need to get other things in check first)
  20. Win or lose this team is still full of champions in my books. To come back from covid and defy all odds and wreck the Leafs back to back... That's a cup for me We're so blessed to be Canucks fans. Would be nice if they could rally now, make playoffs and win the "cup" that is awarded by the... "league" But again not gonna be calling the whambulance if our boys don't win a cup in Vince McMahons rules hockey... End of the day, win or lose, I'll support our team to the moon. The Canucks are truly the greatest sporting franchise on Gods green earth. From mental health, autism, Canucks place, ONE MILLION HEALTHY meals for the food Bank... The Canucks are WORLD CLASS!
  21. Absolutely love that we live in such a kind country that actually steps in for things like this ... Migratory birds act?! This really cracked me up... They had a name for it even! Long live the world's most iconic nation. Canada strong!
  22. Olli to the moon! Love this kid... So nice to see him get one. Patience is virtue. Olli will be a top 4 stud.
  23. Wow I didn't realize that was 10 years ago today... Thanks for the chills! One of those games you can never forget. The win was more of a relief than celebration when you compare it to the Lappy goal... Anyways... +Burrrrrr Iono why people leaving other reacts... Should all be burrrs on such an iconic day! Long live the great l dragon slayer! Here's a moment to put some smiles out there
