Re: MacTavish to coach Chi-Wolves..

True enough on Selanne, its not fair to point to one thing over an 82 game schedule and calling it the TSN turning point that cost them the playoffs....but it sure is easy, which is why I understand MacT feeling like a scapegoat. That seriously happened? The TSN part, I mean? Wow, that surprises me...

Re: GREGOR ROBERTSON NEEDS TO RESIGN

Hornby street is a damned mess since the bike lane went in. It's almost impossible to get around down in the Georgia/Dunsmuir/Pender/Hastings area.

Re: Ahh Summer Nights

Summer nights! Here's one I took tonight - the storms here are incredible. http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/281668_220729351298359_100000838867903_553759_8159370_n.jpg That's one of the cool things for me about going to visit the folks: the occasional thunderstorm that we don't get ou...

Re: HST

I know that this may be considered treason but sometimes bringing in a user fee for some medical exams etc will reduce the non needed appointments. I have seen a study done by a group that indicates almost %60 of all emergency room visits are not an emergency and it could of waited, or better yet n...

Re: Cap Floor & Mr Ballard

I compare Ballard more to BXA than Alberts, regarding his play here. Alberts sucked hard his first year here because he didn't know the system, but as mentioned, did a complete 180 once he learned it. Ballard has had some of that to contend with, but, just like BXA, he had a terrible season followi...

Re: It's all over!!

Really crazy stuff. I was at Main Street/Science world by the time the game ended and the riots started taking place, but it was really disappointing to see black smoke going up as I walked away from the city. We were told to stay in the arena until it was ok to leave. It was an extra hour and half...

Re: TV Shows: What are you watching?

Other than that, I've heard good things about Breaking Bad, and might give that a shot this winter. I've also never given Arrested Development or Entourage a fair shot, and might revisit them as time permits.. Arrested Development is must-see TV. A comedy that you have to pay attention to, because ...

Re: Cap Floor & Mr Ballard

I'm worried that Ballard won't get that opportunity - AV just doesn't seem to like him. He was horribly misused during the playoffs. It's hard playing 12 minutes a night when you're used to 18+, and it's even harder when you're playing on your wrong side with the coach breathing down your neck afte...

Good times.
I've always said that I need to find a friend with a boat.

Re: Ahh Summer Nights

In the middle of a 3-week vacation. The first 10 days were a miserable trip but now we're in the "relax at home and do as little as possible" mode, and it's pure heaven.

Also, I'm getting a lot of video-gaming done, which is actually par for the course on working nights as well. Just not as late.

Re: TV Shows: What are you watching?

You mean the TV actually works when hockey's not on?

I'll have to make a note of that.

*Edit* I mean the TV channels, of course. The TV works fine for my Xbox!

Re: It's all over!!

I'm also a CC refugee, though I didn't post a hell of a lot (so probably none of you even recognize my name). Someone recommended the Corner to me when I was talking about Canucks boards, and I did check it out. But I was already "established" on CC (at least as far as knowing who was interesting an...
