  1. But who says he has not been vaccinated? Maybe he has, but is still wrestling with the fact of increased exposure.....not saying it will happen, only there is a chance. I hear you, but I think there is a lot of pressure.........I don't know, people on here think it is an easy decision............
  2. Well, if I had that much money in the bank it certainly would be a no brainer also........ I would give my apologies and would just not report. Just saying.
  3. I think you missed the point Jim It must be a very difficult decision to make Loosing a career over a possible, unknown chance you may infect your kid and the countless possibilities that come with that decision and its outcome Do not be surprised if he sits out the season.....I know I won't I feel for him, if that is what it is....it would be gut wrenching Hockey is just a game.......let's hope it is much simpler and nothing to do with that
  4. If you have never been to the top of the mountain, it is pretty hard to describe the view.
  5. Vaccinated or not, he can still become infected and pass it onto his kid. IMO, I do not blame him, if he did refuse to play. Hockey is just a game, family is family I would die to protect my children...even as adults! Honestly, stop with the blame game. He is a dad for crying out loud.
  6. I am just going to wait until the Canucks make an official statement. No use speculating.
  7. I would say the Cam Neely trade.................it set up Boston for years
  8. Sometimes we fall a little short........but our intentions are honorable!
  9. Well just like in any family, there is the odd spat, but over all, it is quite the collection of good people. We all have our favorites, I can't begin to name all of them, but there are a few that stand out for me............ Deb (the eternal Canuck fan), Joe (wisdom), Alf (nut bar), Jim (common sense) and Zepp (experience) These are a few of the thousands that make CDC so interesting. Everyone, stand up and take a bow!
  10. Oh, Come on ! ....^%$**$## (PS They should have a crying face emoji)
  11. You are not allowed to mention he who did not sign here by name!!!!!!
  12. This is just wrong! ..................Just wrong!
  13. No! LOL I used to box a little, and I always knew they were in the same weight class, but some guys have go go gadget arms..........so I always wanted to know how long their arms were! I jest!
  14. This was posted by Vintage, yesterday at 831..............this is official, as I understand it! The debate is over!
  15. No, just kidding.......hence the big smiling face.........maybe I should not have...........
  16. When I am being serious on here....(about 25% of the time) I try and push that on some people, but there are alot of people who believe just in analytics, and points, something I do not necessarily agree with. My belief is, that it is still a game of plus/minus, where if you are on for more goals for, then that is good, but if it is reversed, that is bad. IMO, even sheltering is all that reliable, as the game is played with 6 on the ice at a time, and there may be some one else that needs even more sheltering........ Example .......every body sees Hughes points, but if he is on the ice for more goals against than for.........that needs to be evaluated.......and discussed....... And I am not saying he is not a great Offensive player, just that he has shown so far that he is a worse defensive player, IMO. But he is young, and a good/great defensive partner may be all that is required. Anyways.........I liked your point
  17. Truly Crazy times, Rob I honestly don't know what I would have done without CDC, at least for about 6 months earlier on, when I could not golf or play hockey. I did so much hiking, I started to grow hooves. I watched so many reruns, gardened and reno'd just about every room in the house. But it was CDC, that kept my hockey addiction at bay. It was close! It did not help that I did not have any trips to Mexico for 2 years. My blood alcohol level almost dropped to normal levels......... (good Tequila is too expensive up here!) ! Things are almost back to normal, thank God!
  18. Solid post I think this impacts Pettersson and Hughes contracts. Rising contracts are based on a inflation of the Cap, it could very well be that contracts will be flat. It is difficult to anticipate, as Barzal's contract is pretty meager, and was signed this way, yet there are other ones that are certainly inflationary. Very Interesting.......and should bring on some interesting debate......................
  19. Who says that Klimovich's weight and height are accurate? This could just be one big conspiracy !
  20. Oh I know, but people would talk about my Grand Mother if she had hockey skates on in the summer............. The definition of the word "Fan" is from the word "Fanatic".................I am sure it does not resonate the same to you as a regular fan But alot of us eat, breath and sleep hockey, and you guys are our hero's Nothing better than a new shiny hero! LOL
  21. I get why you might be a little puzzled by all the print on this subject............. But seriously Robb Why do you think your hockey card has your height and weight on it, if not for those that want to know? Why does the NHL, KHL, CapFriendly, countless prospect evaluators, etc all post these facts? IMO, people want to know everything about their players, and Podkolzin is the new shiny penny I also think it underlines what sites actually do a little homework, and therefore people think them either trustworthy or not For me, he is big enough and heavy enough, but generally, bigger guys that are talented, beat out little guys who are talented This takes the discussion all the way to the playoffs............. But I have to admit, it is his play that is far more important
  22. This is actually the proposal I would get behind but I do think we need to take back cap to make it work.
  23. Old habits! But thanks for calling me on it.......other wise, I could be saying it for years!
