Re: Canucks News and Notes

O'Sullivan looks worse in this than Burrows does. Hats off to Burrows for owning this but thumbs way the fuck down to Sullivan for bringing this up. Homerism. Burrows is reviled around the league. Check the comments of a non-Canucks site any time his name comes up. Frankly, while I see his work eth...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

It's bullshit that any NHL player has to apologize publicly for something that was said on the ice. Absolute bullshit.
I love this! All is permissible so long as its between whistles eh? So goofy.

Re: Canucks News and Notes

What about verbal attacks on bisexual unicorns who worship floors? You forgot that one. Where do you draw the line? How large would your rule book be? I wouldn't want to live in the world you are promoting. Laws/rules change over time and they change from country to country. Why can't we just let t...

Re: Jim help the twins

Contracts given to Sbisa, Dorsett, and Miller were absolutely horrible. That does not suggest Benning has a clue with what he is doing. Furthermore, the Sutter contract was downright brutal. Not sure why you like giving a 5 year $4.375M/year deal to an average 3C, oh and don't forget the NTC, but t...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Right, the very definition of "whining". :hmmm: What dictionary are you using pal? I'm using this one... https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/whine whine ‎( plural whines) 2. a complaint or criticism ... and I'm applying it more to you than Mr O'Sullivan. :mex: IMPO your insistence that a player be disci...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Are you really saying Burrows should be suspended now for what he said years ago! Yeah, especially if he's not denying it. Inexcusable. Team should fine him frankly. It wasn't okay then so I'm not sure why he should just get away with his behavior because some time has passed. WOW :shock: Earth to ...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

And your point is... what? That if Burrows said it "25 years ago" it would have been okay ... but since he said it 8 years ago it's not okay? :crazy: 25 years ago... or maybe 35 years ago it would be worth arguing whether it was a different context. I can't say that here. Look I remember seeing a L...

It's the 2nds for rentals that I don't want to see. I'd rather he trade our soon to be UFAs for seconds, or thirds, or a first if he can get it for Hamhuis. ...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15

Would any of you trade Horvat + for Johansen? Ryan Johansen - 6'3, 223lbs, 23 yrs old, right handed shot whose already cracked 70 points in a season and he's from Vancouver? Of course you would. Horvat has been dog shit this season if you had hopes for him being a high-upside player. For all we kno...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

Benning and Linden see us 3 points from 2nd place in our division. ;) I actually don't think they do. What does this mean? Sure, it's shitty to bring something up years later. Why? Burrows is in the wrong. And you say years as though it was 25 years ago or something. It was originally said 10 years...

Re: Jim help the twins

A better question may be is Brandon Sutter a number 2 centre on a good team ? Well he could play the minutes and not actively hurt you as long as your roster was constructed around five or six players that were better than him. That said, we didn't sign him to be a top 2 center on a good team. We s...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15

We could secure some seconds or later but that's really it. But if we are going to sign Lucic and Stamkos we need to shed cap :mrgreen: Anyone else actually reasonably sure the Laffs are going to get their man this time? I have a weird feeling about it. On the other hand, I doubt very much Lucic is...

Re: Canucks News and Notes

I understand what you're putting down here. People do get fired for their freedom of speech. Freedom of speech can be painful. But it's better than not having freedom of speech. I am not a fan of collectivism (the subjugation of the individual to a group). Griz, there is no unrestrained right to fr...
