Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

The main difference in Swden's approach compared to most other countries can be seen as threefold: 1) Measures should be sustainable over time (more specifically a two to three year period). This means a hard lockdown is out of the question. 2) Recommendations instead of legislation. There is a hig...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

While Baertschi cleared waivers twice last year (maybe three times), the fact that his contract is done after this season makes considerable difference in terms of whether its movable. I would think that his performance in the AHL last year would have translated into something pretty similar to what...

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

And this Health-health tradeoff point can be made more simply. Do you think there would be excess deaths compared to last year if there was no covid but you shut down or limited “voluntary” health procedures (diagnostic and preventative), people were discouraged from seeking medical treatment, face ...

Re: 2020 NHL OFFSEASON

Elias Pettersson will be staying in Vancouver for the offseason. Not going back to Sweden. If true, I'm surprised. I'm hoping there might be more to it. Something like the Canucks are planning on having safe, practicing facilities available to their players all the way to training camp. https://twi...

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

Did you read this part of the medpagetoday.com article you linked to? Several groups with different agendas have been working to undermine public confidence in the credibility of the COVID-19 death count in the U.S. Their efforts will intensify as the numbers continue to rise. The death count is a ...

Re: Goalies moving forward.

There's a lot of moaning about "losing Demko for nothing" or "losing Markstrom for nothing." That's what the expansion draft does. It means you lose a decent player for nothing. Unless your team is crap. Getting something for Demko means that we lost another player for nothing. (We also don't know y...

Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

How does Vegas manage to outnumber us on pucks shorthanded? It's weird... Because they send one hard at the puck at all times and then provide support. Canucks are spread like a zone, when Vegas overpursuit means they only need a single player on the weak side. That and the entry need to be fixed. ...

Re: Sports and Politics

You did such a good job framing this topic, Corn, I thought I'd bump it with a response. I think that one of the worst trends in American society (and I think its true in Canada as well) is the growing expectation that non-political entities should be engaged in political things. There are a lot of ...

Re: Fix The Canucks Cap 2020 Offseason

Toffoli looks laboured out there right now. He wasn’t a good skater to begin with but now he looks slooooow. If that injury is a high ankle sprain it might be smarter to let him walk. Chris Higgins was never the same after he had that high ankle sprain when he was about 30. There’s been a few other...

Re: GDT R2/G4 [Meds' See Wot Edition] August 30 - SNET @ 19:30PST

Tough game. By and large, the Canucks good players played well and the Canucks poorer players played poorly. I thought that the play and chances were relatively even with both sides tilting the ice for time periods. The Canucks failed to throw a knock out punch when they had the chance (two late 2d ...

Re: GDT Aug 27 R2/G3 Vancouver~Vegas 6:45 Snet

Does anyone really think Trump or his enablers will listen? Listen to what? Respond how? What's the clear message and demand? Kane said human rights more important than sports. A milquetoast statement unobjectionable on its own yet vapid in terms of diagnosing a problem or setting forth a course of...

Re: GDT Aug 27 R2/G3 Vancouver~Vegas 6:45 Snet

But the kneeling thing got him a multi-million dollar contract with Nike. That's pretty cynical there UW, to think that he took a knee figuring he would get a payday out of it. I didn't say he kneeled figuring to get a payday. I said kneeling led to a payday that he wouldn't have otherwise received...
