Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

I heard that generic interview with Horvat. Twice. Once right after the game and again today driving around. I freakin hated it. No doubt he's fully invested in whatever this sickening, fairyland culture that's being implemented by Green. If, and I say that because I don't know yet, Benning approve...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

20 min in this is a great interview. This man is well spoken. He belongs in the game. A team could do well to hire him as a president. Bloberto still pleasuring himself whilst thinking of Mikey, some things never change! :lol: I just think he’d be a good prez type guy. Didn’t say he should be a gm ...

Re: The Rebuild...

JB is a bit of a head-scratcher sometimes. Yes the Pettersen pick was brilliant, while going with Juolevi over Tkachuk was not. Going with the same last place defence corp the following year without making changes? Ugh. It'll be their achilles heel this year and thats on JB. First off, I don't get ...

Re: Canucks camp & preseason 2018/2019

This isn't what the fans wanted.
If you are in the majority it would confirm what many are concerned with in Vancouver....the lack of patience for a rebuild.

Take care...

Re: Canucks camp & preseason 2018/2019

Ricky lives in his world and does not require anyone to agree to him. I don't care if you agree with me or not, if you have something useful to add then please do... My world understands that owners will force their will from time to time, especially when their team sucks... Don't have to like or a...

Re: Canucks camp & preseason 2018/2019

Again.... rooster why is it only these two outfits (Vancouver and Ottawa) that are constantly talked about ? I don’t hear much about Katz meddling since Chia got there. The Jets and Leaves seem to be under solid ownership and other than Murray Edwards is a cheap cunt and the city council and he can...

Re: Canucks camp & preseason 2018/2019

So when ownership tells Gilllis to hire Torterella cause he’s Italian that’s normal? Never heard that before... Assuming that its accurate, the context that the team was too laissez faire and needed a kick in the rear from a fiery coach like Torts would make sense... I welcomed the move at the time...

Re: Canucks camp & preseason 2018/2019

It’s the old man at the top, the 3 dingbats report to him. The old man had a notorious reputation in business world. He’s a huge fan of team. They hold you to your word when it comes to selling your story to get the job, “you said this when we hired you” but what they don’t get is that the sporting...

Re: Canucks camp & preseason 2018/2019

That the owners are meddlesome and poke their noses into what the managers are doing? It’s been widely reported numerous times about Aquilini wanting to deal for Brad Richards in 08. And also in 2014 when Aquilini kiboshed deals for Kesler with both Anaheim and Pittsburge. Multiple sources have rep...

Re: Canucks camp & preseason 2018/2019

So every owner meddles as much as the Little Eagles and Eugene Melnyk? Yet it is only these two ownership groups that are talked about constantly throughout the league in a real negative fashion ? Very interesting theory. And of course we have to get the obligatory “ the fans aren’t patient enough ...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

The biggest issue with media is that it is now 24/7, does not matter if it is sports station, news station or traffic, all are 24/7. The problem is that there is not enough going on to warrant that. I agree... My pet peeve is that with all of the sports media in Vancouver most are lazy or don't hav...

Re: Canucks camp & preseason 2018/2019

I agree with Blob, the owners meddling have completely turned this organization one of the most confused organizations in the league, they need to let their “hockey people” they hire go their job. You guys are kidding, right? 'Cause you can't be so naive as to not understand that every owner of any...
