      Hey man- I always enjoyed reading your thoughts on here over the years. To me you've never been a guest or outsider but an equal member as myself or anyone else who's frequented CDC. I hope you still drop in from time to time even if you never return entirely.. gotta put off-topic/canucks talk in its place sometimes and let faces on here know your chest is still beating. :)

      Miss ya SabreFan. I even visited the Buffalo site to see if you were there but not much activity there. 

  2. Remember when some chose Mittelstadt as an early 2018 Calder favourite?  It's a year and a half later annnnd...

      @Odd.I was initially on the Cody Glass bandwagon myself. Am sure glad I'm not the one doing the drafting (my choices would have been: Nylander, Konecny, Tkachuk, Glass, Hughes, Boldy).

      @vinny_in_vancouver Your draft choices are pretty good mate! I would have been happy with that. Hindsight being 20/20 I’m glad we got Peter and Hughes but again those are good choices!

      @#CanucksNot at the cost of franchise player Petey though. I think that pre-injury Boeser with his laser shot was borderline franchise player. I had Quinn at number 3 so at where he ended up was a no-brainer pick. If PLD and Juolevi were available, from my understanding, both Linden and Benning would have selected PLD so that's too bad.

  3. Sorry everyone.  I missed the entire game.  I was elbow deep in the family businesses central invoicing system for hours.  One of my relatives managed to fubar it and I had to un-fubar it.

     

    From what I could see from the box stats, my crappy goaltending prediction was right on the nose.

     

    What did I miss?  I'm sure there was plenty of whining about refereeing as always, but what happened with Demko's poor stats this game?  His fault?  The defence's fault? 

     

    I already know Carter Hutton sucks so we can skip over that...

      Also had to miss the 3rd today, due to work.

       

      Gotta say, SF..I've seen a few Sabs tilts recently, & Eichel is creeping into that superstar mold. Kid's impressive, & will be competing any month of the season(plenty of talent fades as whistles disappear)

      @SabreFan1 - we should petition jointly the Sabres/Canucks not to make dumb and dangerous plays when they play each other imo. Expansion twins + you being here for so long make me think both teams should be considered in covenant. So mote it be.

    4. SabreFan1

      SabreFan1

      @Nuxfanabroad Eichel has been fun to watch.  I've always kept in mind that he left university after only 1 season and that the rest of his development took place the next couple of seasons in the NHL.  He showed superstar potential last season and is slowly becoming one this season.  He'll only get better as time goes on.

  5. The story of how former Canuck/Sabre Alexander Mogilny was spirited away from the Soviets and out from under the KGB's noses.

      @Sabrefan1  Some guys never "grow up".  Some just take longer.  Mogilny ended up fitting up quite well under a Jacques Lemaire system - you better be good at your play without the puck if you're going to see the ice at all with him as coach.  

       

      A shame either him or Bure were always injured during the time both were Canucks.

    3. SabreFan1

      SabreFan1

      Mogilny was great.  Problem is, he knew it. 

       

      He didn't like it when he eventually had to lose some ice time with others on the Sabres.  Once he was traded, the Canucks made him aware that it was the same everywhere.  However he got to play with Bure so he was happier than a pig in poop regardless.

       

      By the time Vancouver traded him, his skills were ever so slowly declining and he was getting more prone to injuries so he no longer could get upset about his playing time especially the year he took home a Cup with New Jersey.

      There was a TSN original a few years ago; fascinating story.  Hell of a player, especially with LaFontaine.  Too bad the reunion with Bure never really clicked.

      @Ghostsof1915 The defence isn't the issue.  A suddenly sputtering offence combined with inconsistent goaltending has them on a 3 game losing streak.

       

      I kept predicting the goaltending problem, but the sputtering offence is a bit of a surprise since the Sabres up until recently have had production from all of their lines this season.

      ok

      so if they crater again this season

      can we change their handle to "sliders"

      buffalo sliders ?


      cuz they are starting to make a habit of this

      explosive runs that put them to the top of the nhl early

      and then massive drops in performance causing them to slide way down the standings

       

      and i really believed they were/are for real this season

      they still can show they are

       

    4. SabreFan1

      SabreFan1

      @coastal.view Yeah, nobody believes in the Bills either.  lol  They're 6-2 playing a team next week that is 2-6 and the Bills opened as 2.5 point underdogs in Vegas betting.

       

      As for the Sabres, they still need better goaltending and their forwards need to pull their head's out of their as*es and generate some scoring again.

      @Drive-By Body Pierce I hope not.  I could technically use the White Noise forum but I have too much fun messing with everyone here then it goes away after it gets buried from others posting.

       

      Besides it's a Canucks board.  I prefer to only post about the Canucks outside of my profile.

       

      Speaking of which, I was serious about the Canucks possibly taking over first place.  If Demko keeps playing well and Green stays with his hot hand instead of plugging Marky back in right away, I can easily see the Canucks going on a hefty winning streak.

       

      My Demko fanboy-ism is proving to be correct so far.

    Well he'd be an assistant and Buffalo continues to suck so I don't think it was all on him.

    They continue to suck you say?  Have you stepped into Trump's alternate reality?  2nd place with no regulation losses, most goals scored, best differential.  They're definitely going to slow down sooner or later because they have mediocre goalies, but they aren't "continuing to suck" as of right now... 

     

    So far Krueger looks to be an improvement over Housley.

      You missed my quote saying Buffalo is the only team I'd cheer for other than the Nucks :lol:

       

      I was thinking about maybe how Housley would work as an assistant for us, can mentor Quinn, help on the blueline and the PP but I see he's in Arizona now.  I still think we could use some new assistants and keep Green.

    3. NewbieCanuckFan

      NewbieCanuckFan

      One of the big Oilers mistakes (and boy....have they made a TON) was firing Krueger when he had them going in the right direction.  Worse, the Coilers double-down by hiring Dallas Eakins next!

       

       

      And as a Canuckfan, I thank jeebus for that.:P

    4. SabreFan1

      SabreFan1

      @Tre Mac He helped turn Nashville's defence into a powerhouse so I'd imagine he could do the same with the Canucks, but there could be a new head coach next year if the Canucks don't make the playoffs so it would be a better idea to hire Housley as an assistant along with a possible new head coach.

  10. Sabres are in first place in the NHL!

     

    I'm choosing to ignore the fact that so are a bunch of other teams.

      sweet

      is the parade route planned yet ?

      which jersey numbers will be retired ?

      have they decided which disney location they will be going to ?

      so many questions for such a perfect team

    4. SabreFan1

      SabreFan1

      Very.

      It's the same one as the last 50 years.

      All of them.

      Yes.  Disney World.  Disney Land is inferior.

      I have all of the answers for the perfect team.

  11. Elon Musk's Starship update. 

     

    He plans on doing a 20 km high "hop" by the end of the year and put one in orbit some time next year.

     

    Fair warning, when he does it, I'm going to be on CDC obnoxiously saying USA USA USA.  Unless of course it crashes or explodes, then I'm blaming Canada! :lol:

      @SabreFan1   There was a video of a guy doing it.  Was kind of funny (he was wearing 'walking shorts') in that he didn't take off his pants (not that I was disappointed I didn't get to see his "tallywacker" :ph34r:).  He merely 'did his deposit', shook his leg and the log fell out.:P

      @NewbieCanuckFan I'm sure there are plenty of videos of guys and girls.  I just don't go seeking these videos out so this was pretty shocking to me.

       

      I've just never seen it so blatant before.  I've heard plenty of stories about people sharting and/or not quite making it to a bathroom, but actually dropping their drawers and going like an animal.  And that second video where the woman actually picks it up and flings it.  That just boggles the mind.

      I saw that they Sabres also have white gloves as well to go with the kit.  After seeing Vegas using white gloves, gotta say it looks really sharp how all the colours contrast well against one another.

      There could be actual video tapes of Urine man kicking a blind granny in a wheelchair and his popularity wouldn't change.  His followers have long sold their soul.

       

      Best way to beat him in an election is to give voters a reason to vote for them.  Else it'll be a "win" again for Bone Spurs.

      When Donald Trump bought Mar-A-Lago resort, he had to sue the city to be allowed to include all people as members. It was previously all white men. The man is not a racist, furthest thing from it that I can see. At this point, those harping on race constantly should be considered the racists.
