  1. I feel vindicated. I'll take the dub and avoid the pretension from someone vastly overestimating their intellectual capacity.
  2. Cute, and when have I supported Trump? If you think it's cool that our health minister is supporting Chinese migrants buying PPE in bulk just to send back to China then we're in clear disagreement.
  3. Cute, but the real fake numbers were from China, which you were hell bent on defending. Which then resulted in name calling and insults. I felt 'child' was an appropriate irony too good to pass up, in as much as your insults are petty and childish. https://www.businessinsider.com/us-intelligence-found-china-misrepresented-coronavirus-stats-report-2020-4
  4. How are those Chinese numbers holding up now? Still 2%? Ya, keep towing that line 'child'.
  5. pfft, i think it's more than time for the world to stop contorting to the moral hazard that is China.
  6. haha, nice way to spin it. I'd like for our health minister not to pander to some immigrant vote by supporting the shipment of our ppe elsewhere.
  7. I look forward to the day Canada grows some backbone.

      Shot Caller was awesome.. And if you like Shot Caller you like Felon who has the same writer and director.

  8. It's always fun when China lies about the death rate: Treat it like the bio-weapon it is. Cut ties with China, repatriate production.
  9. https://swisshockeynews.ch/index.php/shn/13-international/north-america/nhl/19133-pius-suter-will-wait-until-after-july-1-to-sign-with-an-nhl-team https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/135775/pius-suter Monstrous stats for the Swiss league. 23 y/o forward, undrafted. I wonder if the Canucks are among the teams interested. He played 2 years in the OHL, so he should know the North American game.
  10. Well I think we all agree on Eriksson. I'm of the opinion that Sutter and possibly Baertschi can still be traded. Sutter is serviceable, and it was reported that both MTL and OTT inquired about Sven. If we can trade one or both without adding picks or holding cap then we should do it. Otherwise buyout Sutter. Even if we do buyout all these guys, still have to factor in how we're going to pay for Petey/Hughes for year after next.
  11. I'm wondering if the Canadians team could do something hockey-wise despite the NHL season being suspended. Canada is trending vastly better than the US and should be recovered sooner. If the Canadian teams were to have a play-out of 7 teams down to 4 and then do a 7 games series for two rounds, I be so down. Increase rosters to 25 players, get the sign-off from players, agents and insurance, pay them salaries and get it done. Call it Canada fights Corona or something stupid. I just want some hockey.
  12. Eriksson, Baertschi, and Sutter all dead cap. Someone else pointed out in a different thread that the Sabres have all of 4 forwards on contract for next season, and I'm wondering if they could be interested in Baer/Sutter for a pick. Hell, take anything back. Move one of those guys, and buyout Eriksson, and we're in good shape. If neither get traded, buy out another. The tricky part will be making sure to bank some of that excess cap for the season after the next one (can't used numbers seasons as who knows when it'll start), wherein we'll need to re-sign Hughes/Petey with Edler/Pearson also due.
  13. I'm not sure who the Canucks NCAA target is, but this big righty looks appealing:




    I'd say his no-name program is the only thing holding him back.

      Wow 6'2", 205 lbs, almost point/ game guy.  


      To add him after a Hobey Baker finalist would be a coup.  Wonder if he'd go in round 1 in a draft?

      Wow sounds like Jacob Trouba.  Get it done JB!

  14. Probably our 1C in Utica next season. I think his career path would have been more optimistic if he left after his sophomore year, his stats - while impressive - stagnated after that. A good call-up option maybe. I'm still of the opinion the NHL will finish the 19/20 season.
  15. I'm with ya, I don't trust China either. Maybe an analysis from Gates might change your mind about time-frame:
  16. Impressive, they seem to be on the other side of the curve. I see Wuhan has reported 0 new cases today, seems the timeline is more like 2 months with containment.
  17. We might be closer to South Korea by these vectors. The US will continue to sky rocket.
