"almost all cases" - So Canada does it in some cases.
Apparently (from in the CBC article you quoted) 6% of those youth detained in Canada are held unaccompanied. Do you think the ratio is similar to the US? You should compare apples to apples, not apples to (son-of orange-haired) Orangutans.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/canada-detention-children-united-states-1.4709632 We get waaay less up here, but we follow a similar policy... in fact most of "the free world" does. Nice case of "whataboutism". Last year, 151 minors were detained with their parents in Canadian immigration h...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Hoffman gone. https://www.tsn.ca/senators-trade-hoffman-to-sharks-1.1116853 No surprise. And gone again.. Sharks trade Hoffman to Panthers for a bunch of picks I'd say Ottawa got the better end of this series of deals. Boedkker is no slouch, even if he won't score as much as Hoffman. The head-scrat...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

. Makes me wonder if they’d be willing to trade back to 7th? If the Canucks make that trade, who would you want at #3? If Kotkaniemi gets drafted at his ranking, he could even be available at the NYI 11/12 picks. That might be a worthwhile trade for NYI to trade up for an elite winger, but I don't ...

He is grossly overpaid at 3.15 given his last two years. Domi has played at a 48-point pace his last two years, signed for $3.15M and will be an RFA in 2020. Galchenyuck is at a 54-point pace his last two years, signed for $4.9M and will be a UFA in 2020. Neither is known for their defence, both ar...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Of course Granlund will sign a one year deal. He has no leverage. I read somewhere that he would likely get 1.5 a season. Severe overpayment if so. If he wants more than 1 million a season tell him to take a hike. I would be phoning to see if you can get a 4th or 5th rounder for him. What is the th...

This is why I argued against trading all the 2nds and 3rds away chasing an age gap. Another age gap has been created
Not to mention a talent gap.

Benning is a decent drafter, chances are he could turn those extra picks into a bonafide NHLer.

Well as someone who has said he collects his paycheques with a ski mask and a gun, perhaps he didn’t really earn them
... or perhaps schmucks such as yourself (no offense) don't see the value of a superior 200-foot game.
Not worth $6M per season.

I'm assuming natural grass plays into consideration as to where games are played. Cause Vancouver would draw higher ticket prices than Edmonton for sure!
Yeah I believe FIFA will only consider natural grass. But didn't Vancouver/BC NDP also eliminate themselves, not wanting to spend the $$?

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Pardon me, but if Hanafin is only the #4 guy on Carolina, why do we want him so badly? Even if he would be our #1 guy, we'd still have a shitty defense. Keep the pick and hope we draft a real top 2 D-man. If we trade for Hanafin, we will be over-paying, and pushing our re-build back farther. Maybe ...
