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...

Re: the paranoia of the canuck fanbase

Don’t worry, I’ve been doing this debating thing longer than you have, and as I said you’ve yet to ever give your own, original thoughts on the team so somebody else can discuss them. Given it’s never happened I don’t see that changing now, guess you missed that part too. Hey DieHard, always good t...

Re: the paranoia of the canuck fanbase

Here we go again with that damn word "mentoring". Way over used and in most cases inaccurate. Benning"s first year was a playoff year. I prefer the term leader as opposed to mentor. (sounds like a freakin professor) and we sure as hell haven't brought in one of those. :lol: LE was acquired for the ...

Re: the paranoia of the canuck fanbase

HW, we wouldn’t have signed a player like LE if they were serious about a rebuild. They tried to stay competitive and still retool, give them A for effort but it didn’t work. Do you actually believe that? Looking over their roster the season he was signed, not sure what world you would have to live...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

It's gonna be tough to get respect back but we have to if we want to play with the big boys That's an interesting comment...you hear that a lot from the local media and some fans but whenever you hear players talk its just the opposite... More likely they will say that the organization and the city...
