  1. But he's not better at winning the puck in a faceoff is my point. Yes he's our top player for takeaways (tied with Miller) but he's also one of the top give-away players. I don't know, maybe I'm old school with the notion your top centre needs to get you puck possession instead of chasing the puck for possession.
  2. I really don't see how Elias can be considered out #1 centre with how abysmal his FO's have been. Until he can at least crack close to 50% I just see him as a winger and Miller as our #1C, with Bo as #2.
  3. This is exactly how I feel about it too. I'm ambivalent to Kane, but it's REALLY hard for me to feel bad for Kadri with the crap he pulls, but it definitely wasn't a reverse hit type of situation, Stick in the back was way too low for that to be a reasonable excuse. I don't think it matters if they suspend Kane or not, cuz Edmonton's season is done.
  4. As a former competitive track athlete (not on any ultra-competitive scale, but a few national competitions), I can attest to the fact that aerobic exercises can supplement anaerobic athletics. The cardio built from aerobics like the Grouse Gird can help stamina and recovery levels when your going hard competition for like 30 to 60 seconds, then resting for like 2 minutes. Then when you're back out there going hard for the next shift, your body is capable of recovering because of the stamina you've built from that aerobic exercise. When I ran competitively, my offseason was a fair amount 5-7 k running of hill works similar to the Grind, which allowed me to compete in a range of events from 200's all the way to 1500's. The stamina I gain from the of season aerobic work really helped me, especially my 400 time.
  5. Not that I buy into the conspiracy at all, but 2011 is when Gregory Campbell joined the Bruins, so I think that's where the conspiracy part is founded for a lot of people.
  6. Where the hell are you getting $8.5 mill for Brock from? That's WAY over his qualifying offer. Makes it hard to take what you say seriously when you throw those kind of numbers around.
  7. Jerseys are auctioned off to raise money for Canucks for Kids. But ya, f*#k charity eh?
  8. The kids top 10 in hits on the team, and a +5. For a rookie, he's been really solid and it'd be insane to move someone who is so cheap and has a lot of promise.
  9. I think gurn means OEL's pp time on the Canucks, not ALL TIME pp minutes, which is what you're showing as 3:23. I think for what gurn us saying, AJ is more accurate
  10. If you took your head out of your ass long enough you'd realize Olli gets paids 750,000 be it NHL or AHL, Rathbone will only make 70,000 in the AHL. You have an unhealthy hate for Olli and I can't figure out why. You've bashed him consistently and it's really annoying.
  11. Being frustrated and angry doesn't make a person crazy ffs. There are, in fact, 3 sides to every story; his side, her side, and somewhere in the middle is the truth of it all. You're fighting so hard to position her as crazy, yet we only have the ONE instance of her lashing out on social media. Maybe t all just finally came to a boiling point and she had enough? Can you actually show us a consistent propensity of her acting "crazy"? I mean, way earlier you stated something about her wanting attention or something like that? She has what? A whole 6 posts on her Instagram? That doesn't strike me as an attention grabber. I feel like you're reaching hard to reinforce a preconceived narrative in your mind. I've seen how living in that kind of environment effects people, and that fact she kept quiet as long as she did is impressive in my mind.
  12. Since I'm not familiar with their dynamic, I don't want to speculate as to if they have character defects or not (though I think enough has been made public in the past about Evander to assume he probably does). But, as a person who grew up in a household of addiction, I can legitimately say that sometimes good people who remain in that environment too long become completely different people than they started out. All the cheating and lying and gambling he's done over the years could (and most likely did) have some kind of impact on her becoming the person she has outwardly exhibited through those Instagram posts.
