Re: Predictions for 2011-12

They have IMO a physical style of play. I don't see too many choir boys on the Hawks roster. We were noticably more physical in that first series last year than Chicago was, and are apparently the definition of diving pussies. I'm starting to get annoyed. It seems like everybody is listening to idi...

Re: Predictions for 2011-12

Potatoe, this year's Chicago squad looks worse than the team that barely made the playoffs last year. I don't think anybody's intimidated. I still can't believe they lost Campbell, Brouwer and even Kopecky and replaced them with basically Andrew Brunette. That D looks particularly thin...I guess the...

Re: 11/12 Training Camp Thread

What Down Goes Brown said about the Canucks in his Western Conference season preview: Inexcusably failed to address their most obvious and glaring weakness: occasionally struggling to score against goalies who are having one of the best statistical seasons in hockey history. :lol: :P :o :cry:

Re: 11/12 Training Camp Thread

OK, so I thought brining in Winchester on a PTO would be a good idea for his size and physicality. He looked horrible in the games against Vancouver. The KO was just the icing on the cake! :D While Hodgson hasn't looked out of place, he doesn't exactly look like he belongs either. For having a high ...

Re: Living beyond ones means!

I help organize our annual corporate golf tournament. Part of what I take car of is managing the tournament's finances. There is a $100 entry fee per player that has to be paid with a cheque. I always strategically deposit the cheques after a payday to prevent NSF problems. Without fail, there are a...

Re: Sept 22 GDT - Canucks vs Oilers in Edmonton 6pm - TSN

Doe anyone still ask how the heck the twins manage to beat guys on the rush or on the boards? They're still physically average, has only decent speed, not super quick or agile, don't beat defenders one-on-one with their stickhandling but still they get the job done and win scoring titles. I disagre...

Re: Sept 22 GDT - Canucks vs Oilers in Edmonton 6pm - TSN

Blob, I'm rooting for Nolan. Assuming he acquits himself well during camp, why not give the guy a shot on the 4th line when other guys like Oreskovich and Volpatti can easily be sent down to Chicago and brought back up if Nolan flounders, gets injured or can't cut it? The worst case scenario is the ...

Re: Byfuglien arrested for drunk boating, also got fat

My apologies to Sir Charles...he's only 48.

Seriously though, compare the two. Barkley might even be in better shape. His boobies are defnitely less pointy.

Re: Byfuglien arrested for drunk boating, also got fat

The guy is fat folks. He has boobies, a belly and big fat kid cheeks. He is a big, dumb fatty. If you don't think this is affecting or will affect his career you're delusional. At some point his skill won't be able to mask the fact that he's just plain lazy and unprofessional. I can't understand how...

Re: NHL in Tacoma

Levin was in Bellevue in July looking at potential arena sites. Apparently he has some interest in building an NHL calibre arena in the Seattle area, but this seems to be a long way away from happening (if at all). Apparently Bellevue has shown a lot of interest in having an NHL team, while the city...

Re: Canucks sign right wing Victor Oreskovich

The reason I want to see Winchester given a shot here is because we have a team that lacks size and toughness on essentially all four lines as well as our defence. Winchester is potentially a guy who can play a regular 4th line shift and will definitely make us a bigger, tougher team. I don't think ...

Re: Canucks sign right wing Victor Oreskovich

I agree Blob, while Oreskovich seems like a promising young player he really is missing some attitude which I think will hold him back. He's a big, speedy, physical player. Now, if he were a big, speedy, physical player who was also an asshole he'd be a gem. I suspect he'll spend most of the year in...

Re: Winchester to sign with VAN

I have been a proponent of signing this big SOB. A big, tough, physical guy who can play. He would be absolutely ideal on our fourth line. Why he hasn't been offered a contract by GMMG, I do not know. I don't get it. I seriously doubt a guy who doesn't have a contract in early September would be hag...
