7?

 

Yes there were 7 brothers, but Brent can't be his father and his uncle.  Or could he, that would just be weird.

Only if he were a Targaryen

Hmmm, ok so I’m bad at math. Or maybe there’s a long lost sister?

Watched part of the Ed vs Jets game - boring - kind of expect the same tonight .  Jets block up the neutral zone  - hate that type of game.  Maybe our speed will get us through.

Another big game - win in regulation

GCG

It becomes a game of patince because the neutral zone trap is intended to cause turnovers and odd-man rushes. The Canucks need to be responsible, simplify their defensive game, skate the puck out, get the puck deep and win puck battles. If the Canucks play that solid five-man defensive game, they can win a low-scoring contest. If they lose patience and blow the zone, they will lose.

I thinking that maybe rather than protecting him in the ED, they're hiding him by not playing him.

Toronto has arguably the biggest fanbase of the Canadian teams: and that fanbase can be replicated in many of the southern 'iffy' markets on the turn of a dime. Vancouver has 675 thousand people and lots of them watch hockey, and BC has 5 million and lots of us watch hockey. Phoenix has 4.5 million people and Arizona has 7.5. Not many watch hockey though, but it doesn't take too many % points when the city has 4.5 million instead of 675 thousand to turn around the revenue in a hurry. 

 

I think it is good to grow the sport into new markets in North America, but what may be even better would be the tier system that the Premiership has in soccer in ENgland for example. There are like the NHl/AHL/ECHL system like a hundred clubs and what the NHL could do is have 32 in teh NHL, another 32 in the AHL and another 32 in the ECHL and just like the premiership or WJH system: the last place team this year bumps ddown to the 2nd tier and their winner bumps up. 

 

Instant "anti tanking" right there. 

 

But its too wild a change and the owners would never vote to have a chance to drop to the AHL in a bad year. Too bad, as that format has made even Bolton worth billions.

 

EDIT: as an aside, contracts could be done as strait % of revenue, you pay your Matthewses 12% or what not and your boydses 1% or what not and then it doesn't matter where you end up in the teir system, your income determines your salary expenditures: but your stars will demand a trade when you tank and drop a tier, that is for sure, just like in the Premiership. 

 

Another spitball idea is for the NHL to pony up and buy professional womens teams and recreate them into a duplicate WOmens league of the NHL: when the canucks are on the road playing Calgary, literally the Lady Canucks are at home hosting Calgary's Women. Do this for 32 NHL teams and you double the local games available for fans, giving women a bigger stage, and revenue will flow from that. The relative strength of the mens league would then bouy the womens a little, while also lending credence to it. Identical paralell leagues mandated under the NHL and literally each NHL club must have a womens team, makes it easy to implement and get something off the ground, again using %'s for salary instead of hard cash amounts. 

Your use of Bolton FC as an analogy was a bit unfortunate. Whilst the club itself has a long history, the last time they dropped out of the Premier League they continued dropping until they were in League Two (the fourth tier). They went into administration in 2019 and were only saved from bankruptcy by a last minute investor. They have a huge problem because they are in the shadow of the 2 Manchester clubs who can outspend them in every department. Imagine there were 2 NHL clubs in Vancouver and one BCHL club, which would you go and watch?

Although Slovakia does produce some decent hockey players I’m not sure what the southernmost village and municipality in Slovakia has to do with tonight’s game.

There are two Canadiens players (Armia and Kotkaniemi) that are on the COVID-Protocol list today. Let's hope they didn't spread it to the Canucks considering they played less than 48 hours ago.

This combined with the Canucks recent string of results could be the TSN turning point of the season if the Canucks do escape without anyone needing to go through the protocol.
