  1. You won't be able to watch those videos on the forums here, the embedded links don't work. However, if you just open them in a new tab actually just watch them on twitter's site, they work just fine.
  2. Appreciate the time it takes to compile these sorts of things. Definitely interesting, and Tampa really is a good example of an insanely deep lineup. Every line can do damage.
  3. Nice write-up, sure takes a fair bit of research and time to put something like this together, for thanks for that. Honestly, it's such a joke that Edmonton is in the state they are in after all of those lottery picks. It's really quite pathetic. I'm excited for our core to move forward and see what they can do.
  4. Haha, my brother played hockey with this guy in Peewee, his dad was the coach. That team also produced another fringe NHLer. Good for Brad signing with his hometown team. Must be pretty awesome. He'll be great depth in Abby who can be called up and actually play NHL games. He played 59 games for the Wild in 2019-2020.
  5. Sums up this market, its fans, and the media pretty succinctly.
  6. That would have been amazing haha. Wonder if they talked about it at all
  7. LOL, I have to admire your cynicism and ability to extract this scenario out of the contract signed. Hahaha, the chance that this happens is about next to zero but I definitely had a good chuckle.
  8. Easily the worst trade in recent Canucks memory if you actually pulled the trigger on that. This entire plan is predicated on landing Parayko or Klingberg? What if they don't hit FA or sign with another team? There's a reason actual GMs don't make these kinds of trades. Known quantities are always worth more than unknown quantities. Every single time. When's the last time you saw a player of Quinn's caliber get traded for anything less than a 1st, multiple other picks and multiple players/prospects? In your proposal: Myers - cap dump Hughes - sweetener? Graves - Good shutdown defenseman (who you're vastly overrating) Subban - cap dump 1st round pick - Unknown quantity. Could be anywhere from a 3rd line player to a legit 1st liner to a complete bust. some unknown chance of signing a big UFA This could end up as trading Hughes and Myers for Graves and a 1st. Would that acceptable return to you?
  9. Yep, the CRF (case rate fatality) is anywhere from around 2.6-3.4 times higher than the first variant, depending on the region.
  10. A lot of people in here thinking this will just blow over in a couple weeks don't seem to realize this is not the original variant, this is the far more virulent and deadly P.1 variant from Brazil. They are entirely not the same thing. The data is quite, quite, different. I'm not saying that the sky is falling, but it's quite naive to think that in two weeks the Canucks will all be just fine and playing again as if this never happened. It's possible that MIGHT happen, but the chances that it doesn't happen are just as high. Considering the fatality rate of people aged 20-39 for this particular variant of Covid-19, the concern is valid.
  11. Considering it's the P.1 variant from Brazil that is spreading through the Canucks org, no, actually, it is not being blown out of proportion at all. If you look at the studies done in Brazil about this particular variant, the fatality rate for the 20-39 age group is nearly triple, and we've only begun to document and understand its long-lasting effects. The virulence and fatality rate of this particular variant is incredibly high.
  12. Strive to be more like the Leafs, lmfao. Please. It's not April 1st yet.
  13. Guy is just a darling of the league in a lot of ways. He's just hilariously goofy and dorky and likable, all the while being absolutely squeaky clean and polite and well-spoken. Can't help but love Petey, what a stud. I still have to pinch myself at times that we got this guy at 5th.
