Agreed Blob, Jimbro needs to load up picks for this draft
And needed to for every draft he oversaw before this, but better late than never.

Are you SERIOUSLY trying to insult Per? One of the sanest and most reasonable posters on this here god damned hockey message board? Give your demographically challenged head a shake!

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

The word means what it means. It is up to you to educate yourself in regards to "all" it's potential applications in regards to this team and where it plays. OK Micky, here's what the word means to the rest of the English-speaking world: "Demography (from prefix demo- from Ancient Greek δῆμος dēmos...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

but in all honesty, we are demographically challenged, Oh, again with the demographics ! OK, maybe this word has some specialist meaning of which I am unaware. Micky, what does this word mean to you ? Would you please provide a link to whatever group of specialists uses it with the meaning you offer?

Only 12 people voted?
I was away that week.

For the record, I would have chosen Option 2.

Thanks to Doc for the link from the News & Notes thread.

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

Jimbro will go down as one of the greatest GMs in Canuck history. Chef Boi reclines to his siesta and enjoys the view of his innate ability to see in to the future. If he builds that Masterpiece Dynasty you've also foretold, then there's no doubt that he is the greatest GM in Canucks history. If he...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

BTW my longtime buddy Diehard already admitted he was trolling when he called you "the voice of reason"! I wasn't kidding when I said this board needs Blob's (and Don's, and IN's, and other non-cultists') perspective to maintain some sort of balance, i.e. avoid becoming the mirror-universe version ...

Suffice it to say, I’ve never seen anybody miss the forest for the trees as much as you That's odd considering that very idiom is constantly used by the antiblobs to describe the blobytes (folks such as yourself). If you are as much in the mood to illustrate as debate, could you please expand on th...

If we're relying solely on the lottery picks, Bo Horvat is nearing UFA just as players like Pettersen and Hughes are hitting primetime.
Or, as some may have suggested, the Canucks need(ed) to acquire more high picks.

Too bad McCann didn't develop into more of an asset.

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Contact Alex Burrows immediately and make him head coach of the Vancouver Canucks. One of the principle lessons I took out of the Gillis era was the extent to which building a successful NHL franchise is a political exercise. This lesson in mind, I submit that no Burrows-coached NHL team would be a...

Benning is a good drafter....
Some may think me overly conservative -- paranoid, even -- but so far there is exactly one Benning draft pick, Brock Boeser, of whom we can say, "boy, he sure does look good taking a regular NHL shift." Everything else is just hope, however well-founded.

He's a figurehead, nothing more, nothing less.
So is he figureheading badly, or do you think the figurehead role is unnecessary, or even counter-productive ?

Re: the paranoia of the canuck fanbase

Where is Blob, btw? He was asked to leave :eh: By his wife and kids? In self defence. Without Blob's perspective, this board would be in serious danger of turning into a circle-jerk.
