Re: GDT: Canucks @ Minny - 6pm - Sportsnet One

I just watched the video again of the Rypien incident and I didn't notice the first time around but Bieksa was about a millisecond away from jumping right in with Rypien on that fan. The only reason he didn't is Malhotra shoved him back. Also Henrik tried to calm him down, was patting him on the bac...

Judging by my 12+ years online in message boards of one kind or another and going back a decade before that to dial up bulletin board systems I'd have to say the answer to that is easy: every person on earth. ;)

Re: GDT: Rangers visit Canucks, 7:00 PM, TSN, 1040

The number one guy in Canucks history for penalties was Dave ( Tiger ) Williams.. and is still the NHL record holder... he was also a big reason that the Canucks made it to the Stanley cup playoffs in 82. I still remember to this day as a kid driving home with my dad from cutting firewood all day a...

Re: GDT: Canucks/Moose@LA - PPV 7:30

That was actually a sweet win and worth watching as a fan of hockey and the Canucks and sport in general because it was clear going in they had a definite plan that fit within the resources at hand and the team they had to play that night and they executed the plan brilliantly and imposed their will...

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Chicago - 5:30 - TSN, NHLN-US

Also i would like to say.. TSN puts on a great show when they broadcast Canucks game. I wish they would cover more games.. I enjoy it more then CBC and Sportsnet You *can't* be serious! TSN sucks badly compared to both sportsnet and CBC. Did you not watch last year? They cut off the start of many o...

Re: Pratt and Taylor

I'll throw a monkey wrench into this whole discussion. Can we say Nascar is a sport? Formula 1 - yes, Superbikes - definitely, World Rally Championship - Hell yes, there are few more demanding auto sports or requiring more talent. Nascar though is a bit of a joke to me as a fan of autosport, it req...

Re: Pratt and Taylor

I kind of agree w/ Burke on this one that to be classified as a sport there has to be a danger element. Nice! I never heard that before but it's sweet and makes 100% sense to me. Either way though I'm listening to the team 1040 for the first time since the draft ended so it's brilliant marketing if...

Well to be fair he *was* playing for Toronto; not much to smile about there. :)

Re: The Detroit Machine

With that to consider - the current Canuck lineup would be swept by these guys. How do we start to build a team to beat these guys? Youth? Vets? Talent? Defense? They're leagues ahead of us - and our only hope is that Detroit implodes from the depression and there is a changing of the guard. Wow it...

NEVERTHELESS ON SATURDAY…WHEN THE ISSUE WAS RAISED… BETTMAN LOOKED INTO THE EYES OF THE MEDIA AND SAID… “FROM MY STANDPOINT…IT’S NOT PERSONAL”… WHO THE HELL IS TRYING TO FOOL… FOR BASILLIE…IT DOES NOT GET ANY MORE PERSONAL… DP You (assuming it is really you) keep characterizing Bettman on air as so...

Re: **Newsflash** Bettman Sucks & WHA Conspiracy

I wonder if in the end Bettman is really just doing what he's told and actually has little say in the policies.

Re: GDT: R2G6 - Canucks @ Chicago - 6pm - CBC, VS

I see a lot of people countering blame Louie posts by bringing up game 4 and saying that 7 goals was a "bad game", in fact he had a bad SERIES entirely. He stole no games for us and let in a *lot* of bad goals. He was just bad the whole series. No the blame doesn't fall entirely on him, but a *lot* ...

Re: GDT: R2G6 - Canucks @ Chicago - 6pm - CBC, VS

I felt this coming two games ago and I could feel myself almost subconsciously distancing myself from the Canucks. Every time the Canucks got the lead I said to my wife "so what do you think, 5 minutes or less before Chicago evens it up?" and sure enough. I hope the Hawks win the cup to take some of...

Re: GDT: R2G5 - Canucks host Hawks - 7:30 - CBC, VS

Seems like just about every game of this series the Canucks run out of gas in the 3rd period and the Hawks don't.

Re: Can this be blamed on the 8 day layoff?

Yeah definitely wait for game 3. As long as the guys don't start outthinking themselves they should be fine.
