Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

If you weren't impressed with Tkachuks game at the WJC's then get off the glue. Even ole Ray Ferraro says he's taking Thachuk 2nd overall. :lol: Right then, based on fuck all! It really depends on who's drafting in that position so it's odd that you'd be so confident given there's no consensus. Hop...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

I'd be shocked if Tkachuk doesn't go 2nd overall. Why are you so confident Tkachuk will go 2nd? I thought his stock has dropped a little since the beginning of the year and there's no consensus in this year's draft beyond Dahlin going 1st overall. If anything it seems Zadina is the front runner amo...

Re: The Brexit disaster

Lol not gonna get my traction on this subject in Western Canada based fan forum! :lol: Meanwhile in the U.K. we have been inundated with Brexit news which has been nauseating to say the least! I was out of the country for a few months which was a welcome break from the brexit firestorm. As much as I...

Re: My biggest frustration with Canuckscorner.com & Canucks

Twas all (well mostly) tongue-in-cheek. :wink: For example, my buddy Rummy was C4L (here at the Corner only). Hilarious thread from a brief time when we allowed some socks out of boredom. No worries. I just found it funny that I somehow missed this discussion 3 years ago and it randomly surfaced. I...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

I don't mind Pratt these days, used to hate him but he's toned it down since his return. 1040 needs to do something about the afternoon show and All Things 1970's - Don Taylor Agree 100%. A few years ago Pratt was absolutely insufferable and got himself fired for his tired bike lane rants. Since he...

Agreed! Was sure it would be Detroit based on hockey gods but who knows. He wasn't the name I expected to drop so low.

Re: The 2017 NHL Entry Draft

Well, just to play devil's advocate... is Glass any more physically mature than Pettersson? I doubt he's ready for the NHL right away. It seems some GMs feel both have higher upside than Vilardi? Yeah, Vilardi still hasn't been called... Curious. Wasn't surprised about Glass over Vilardi but that A...

Re: The 2017 NHL Entry Draft

Wow. When they sat there, and Benning was on the phone, I thought we traded down.. Well I am a little surprised. I figured if they coveted Peterssen they would have traded down so just assumed they were going with Glass when they didn't trade. Oh well. Pretty hard to know how this will pan out in t...

I should add in my completely ignorant view, I am hoping for Vilardi.

You have to think Colorado goes with Vilardi or Makar.

I feel like Vilardi will still be on the board and we will pick Glass or Peterssen and piss off a bunch of people as if we have seen any of these kids play! :lol:

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

More Karen Surman and Sattiar Shah and less Taylor and Macdonald and Jake etc This. It's time for a changing of the guard. When Blake Price and Matt Sekeres are the youngest hosts on your network, you've got a major lack of representation. I wouldn't care if there was diversity of opinion and abili...
