Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

San Jose. Now with 2 of the best defensemen in the league. They only need to dress 5.... Can you imagine one of Karlsson or Burns being on the ice 54 minutes a game? This is Pronger-Niedermeyer stuff. Good for the Sharks. The return is pretty pedestrian, but it isn't nothing. They got a first, a sec...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

There are pros and cons with both systems. ... Proportional voting basically has opposite pros and cons. Good things are that all voters receive a voice in parliament and that each vote carries the same weight as all other votes. A party that has 15% of the voters get 15% of the seats in parliament...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

Immigrants is what made America America in the first place, and it was immigrants that made America great. I concede that America is great. I like Canada a fair bit, too.... As for Sweden, I've never visited. But I like many of your hockey players and enjoyed your attempt to sack Paris in 815 or wh...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

I think the Germans had higher ideals than that. I mean, they produced some of the greatest authors, composers and philosophers of the time. They can't all have been simplistic warmongers. My cultural point is that their art and philosophy--which was sometimes beyond great--also contributed to cond...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

Is it as simple as Colbert suggested the other night; “yeah, I’m not really happy with his racism, but… you know, lower taxes…”? Because frankly, you know, that's how a lot of Germans felt back in 1933. Yes, the Trump is Hitler meme. No better example of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Not saying Trump...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

He is constantly challenging the freedom of the press, and has suggested changing libel laws so that more journalists would go to jail.He hasn’t yet. But he has expressed wishes to do so. It could stem more from a lack of understanding of the American constitution than a genuine agenda, but still. ...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

Hi Per. I haven't engaged in any political talk for years. Probably since the days of the other CC. But I wanted to respond to my international friends. Yay! My favourite republican enters the fray! :-) We may not always see eye to eye on matters, which I guess is almost a prerequisite for a good d...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

He has made it his mission to break traditional alliances and pull of out agreements without much thought. This will hurt any administration going forward - how will other countries expect the US to keep their word? I don't think that pulling out of agreements is done without much thought. (I might...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

Well, in the US, they do their best to limit the amount of people who vote. Thus voting on a normal week day with limited opening hours and far between poll stations. Many states, especially in the South, block ex-cons from ever voting again, etc, etc. Also, you have to register at a prior date in ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Edler was a freaking fire drill for so many years. He was never a true #1 regardless of others hopes and dreams. Cannot wait for him to leave, then this team has really moved on. Yeah I know he is the last remaining but just want him gone. Moved on from the concept of having a solid (if not great) ...

Interesting rankings...

Top 50 Prospects
Sometimes you get the feeling that some rankings are designed to be provocative.

Still, it is a good reminder that the Canucks have one of the very best prospects in the world, and that is something to be excited about.

Re: Trevor Linden is stepping down in VAN

I don't understand a disagreement between being ready next year to compete for the playoffs or the year after in terms of direction. The team is in a rebuild (and there really is little left that can be torn down for assets to help it). It isn't over until the next core needs only supplements to com...

I don't think it was a bad decision for him to go back, but seriously "college is a shit load of fun " ?? Personally I find a $975,000/year salary a much bigger shit load of fun than college, without the downside of a gold digging whore trying to get knocked up at a frat party. Yes, far better to r...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

^ ummm nope... as far as opinion go, don’t think so. I said Sutter was probably marginally better than those other two guys. Thing is they make about 1/3 of his $$. The two slug d men are as good as Real Dud and his 9 points a season. The thing about being marginally better is that salary comes fro...
