Let's not forget that HNIC turns a PROFIT for the CBC. It is not a drain on the taxpayer dollar. If we want to get all pissy about what the CBC spends our money on, why do they carry old Coronation Street episodes in primetime. What the hell? Do we really want our tax dollars showing British soap op...

Since we're on the topic of bitching about networks, I want to air my pet peeve. Does it drive anybody else friggin mental when a goal is under review, and instead of showing the goal from different angles, they show the refs talking on the phone and the players picking thier nose on the bench. Show...

2. Play in goal for the next Canuck game that is more of a 'gimme'. Gimme - ie. not playing a hot team, but a team that has been struggling. Just helping him win to get his confidence up would be a positive. I was wondering about this earlier when I was looking at the schedule. Do we start Sabourin...

I got a Canuck's wrist sweat band and sweat towel for my squash games, and a toque. Last year, it was a mug, beer glass, shot glass hat trick.

On TSN last night, they said that Rory said that he would talk to his teammates and the NHLPA and make a call if he had to. I would love to see him go but agree that he probably won't. Although he did win the Canucks accuracy contest...could be a secret weapon for the West. On the other hand, the co...

They are without a doubt, easily the best 2nd line in hockey.
Not to mention, if AV plays his cards right, 2/3 of the best 4th line in NHL history. :roll:

Well, it's the sentimentalist in me, but I would love to see Bert back. I would also like to see Jyrki Lumme back, and Cliff Ronning, and Jeff Brown, hell even Dave Babych just for the porn 'stache. Kesler will take a pay cut and who knows, maybe the cap will go enough to make it possible. Possible....

Replies: 6

It's funny how gratifying it is to watch players do EXACTLY what we expected them to when the season started. Matt Cooke is providing a spark on the first line with Mo and Nassie. Morrison is skating well. Bulis is clicking with the twins. The third and fourth lines are providing solid defense and s...

Views: 1287

He did it because the first line of Sedins and Pyatt stopped scoring, and Naslund-Morrison-Bulis weren't scoring either. At least putting Nazzy with the Twins is a sure thing. Better to have one great line scoring than 2 mediocre lines shooting blanks. Although it looks like Mo is getting back on tr...

Rule #13 - If the score is lopsided, do not celebrate a goal, whether you are on the losing or winning side of the blowout. Rule #13 (a) - Rule #13 does not apply if it is your first goal in the NHL or makes you reach a major milestone. Rule #13 (a)(i) - Bonus class points if you don't celebrate a g...

Two starts in 24 games? Not enough to judge in my opinion. As great as it would be, we can't start Roberto every single game. I'll admit that his first 2 starts have not been impressive, but he needs more playing time to prove himself. At this pace, Luongo will start 75 games this year, which is WAY...

I saw their home opener and they got shut out. I noticed McLeod as well, but only because he was tall. Not much of a presence really. Hornby is a maniac. I like him. My buddy gets me free tix, so I will be at quite a few games this year. Will post if any "diamonds in the rough" appear.

Signing Salo and shopping Ohlund?
I wouldn't be adverse to that, necessarily...but if we are moving salary, Cooke and Morrison seem like better options.
