Re: Canucks News and Notes

* I asked him about Willie losing the room, as I had heard a few weeks back. He said bull shit. To a man, the players he has talked to love Willie. He is a great teacher, has a ton of patience, has a calm demeanour, and doesn't publicaly dress players down. If he has an issue with you he talks to y...

Re: Kesler's Agent: No Hometown Discount

Note to all hockey people who use this term incorrectly: it's not a "hometown" discount unless he's playing for his hometown!

And real-life hometown discounts basically don't exist.

Re: Why no team in Seattle?

Portland & Seattle have always made more sense than abo 1/4 of the American franchises...but like Hamilton the NHL just refuses to look at them. Instead they keep pushing Kansas City. It's not the NHL's job to force franchises upon people, it just depends which investors approach them. To date, the...

Re: Colorado at Vancouver, TSN 7:00 PM

Crapola first period, which was predictable between the layoff and the fact that it's, sigh, Colorado.

Well, to be fair, the deal hadn't yet started yet, so he wasn't that expensive yet.

Näslund to the Rangers is a very sad development for me. The flak that he took from the fans (though surprisingly, not so much here) was ridiculous. Yes, he is on the decline. So what, so are a lot of players. He's the franchise's all-time leading scorer, its only Pearson Trophy winner, and captain...

Re: Anahim and Playoffs

So who watched the game against Anahim where we lost 4-1? Do we really have any hope of making the playoffs. It seems year after year we get our hopes up just to have them smashed in the early rounds by poor coaching decisions are bad goaltending. Case in point, several years ago Alex Auld was hott...

If MayRay had so much as a hangnail, I'm sure they would have labeled him "injured" to avert this very controversy. Sounds like he was a pure healthy scratch, through and through.

It was kind of funny (in a really mean way) that both Foote and Salei, at one point or another, looked injuried in last night's game... you have to think that if Forsberg were dressed, a similar fate may have befallen him. :lol:

Congratulations Darwin Head!! Heh, you could see he was getting distracted by Randorf announcing how well he was doing... once Randorf started getting excited ("three... four... FIVE!!") Darwin started missing. Kudos to him, he regained his composure and finished it off in style. His friends must be...

Another game that will be viewed in the east. Looks like I'm staying up late tonight. With revenge on their minds combined with a late game in Calgary, I say Canucks win 4-3. Salo, Edler, Kesler and Naslund. I'm with you in solidarity, L_i_G... will be doing the same! ;) And Mattola, while yours ma...
