Re: The Brexit disaster

The Swedish government has nothing against granting an extension as long as the UK can provide a motivation for why it is needed. We will not accept any further negotiations though. The negotiating is done. Now it is just up to the UK to decide if they want to accept the deal, leave without a deal o...

Re: The Brexit disaster

Also, Theresa May is asking for an extension till June 30th, but the EU will likely not grant this. Either the UK should leave before the EU parliamentary elections that are held 23-26 of May (different days in different countries) or make a longer commitment, participate in the elections and stay a...

Re: The Brexit disaster

Another fun read. The speaker of the House of Commons has decided that he will not allow a third vote on the same deal, citing an old law that states that you cannot vote on the same issue twice in the same session of parliament. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/mar/18/constitutional-chaos-...

Re: Career milestones 2018/19

I was always a fan of the 40 goal 200 penalty minute club guys like Al Secord. He did it twice in his career. Right... and most recently in the 85/86 season. :look: Bertuzzi had 46 goals and 144 penalty minutes in 03-04......needed just a wee wafer moore Shanahan did once or twice. Probably flirted...

Demko appears to be getting more comfortable on the big stage, no really noticeable alarm bells there; positive; Horvat is finally starting to look happier and more himself, would appear the confidence, (swagger), is returning; Edler: Hero or Zero? After all the smoke clears, I gotta say hero. 8-) ...

Re: Career milestones 2018/19

They are now called "Reeves/Wilson" type of players Only two players in the league have been north of 200 PIM in a season in the padt five seasons; Steve Downie, 248...

All is as it should be in Per's world. Swedes now hold every canucks franchise record.
Skål!
:drink:
Except penalty minutes :devil:
And goalie stats.

Marx has improved a lot this season, but Luongo is still by far the best goalie the franchise has seen.

Re: Canucks @ Stars. 4 pm

If he were poke checking, his body would be moving forward and reaching towards the puck. His body is moving backwards and laterally. Yeah. I could possibly have bought it if the stick touched the puck before leaving the hand, but it doesn't. He clearly throws the stick at the puck, and it has alre...

Jeff Paterson @patersonjeff via email, #NHL has responded to my request for an explanation on Khudobin vs Pettersson penalty shot in last #Canucks game Basically told him it was a hockey play where in attempting to poke check he inadvertently lost control of his stick.
