Re: Norway? No way!

I read about this before heading off to work - and was puzzled. No speculation was provided on the culprit at that time.

It doesn't fit the N. American image of Norway.

It seems there are loonies everywhere.

Re: Cap Floor & Mr Ballard

Hockey statistics need a disclaimer - that complications (team mates, roles) usually prevent a level field of comparison. They need to be taken with a grain of salt.

Mowing the lawn needs even more help to make it palatable. :drink:

Re: What the??? What happened?

The media (especially the eastern media) had it in for us, OK, move on.

They also distracted some of our guys from their game focus, not OK. The Canuck organization needs to deal with this better.

Re: Hodgson Outlook

I would just like to see ch play the first 20 games where ever ..stints on all lines.. That would be a good beginning to his season. Even fourth and third line experience can develop confidence and NHL level game fitness. In the minors/AHL, he was strong on the puck, with good balance, and good puc...

Not my game.

Re: what happened to the Concave Hollow Earth thread??

Repressive authority invites rebellion by the prolitariate. :eh: Hmmm just so we're clear... the commies gave rise to fascism. :) While the dictatorship of the prolitariate might be considered a form of fascism, I wouldn't credit the commies with the concept of the prolitariate, or of classes. They...

Re: what happened to the Concave Hollow Earth thread??

NO.... I was the thread-starter! I'm thinking either we struck a nerve with the Reptoids.... or with the intellectual fascists of the "scientific community". Or............ perhaps they're one-and-the-same? :look: Repressive authority invites rebellion by the prolitariate. :eh: Carrying on, there w...

Re: Concave Hollow Earth Hypothesis

If the earth is expanding................does that mean the sky is falling? Yes, unless you believe in both the Expanding Earth theory AND the Concave Hollow Earth Hypothesis. In which case, of course, it's just the opposite. It's a good thing it's happening slowly. Else the pressure to make a deci...

Re: The Power Forward

I can't get past Evander Kane. Young, tough, wheels, puts up points, local boy.
Winnipeg would want a lot, and I would be inclined to give a lot.
It might take a three team swap to cash in Schneider's value as part of a package.
Difficult, but worth a try.

Re: Cap Floor & Mr Ballard

Are you saying that you think that Tanev is a defensive defencenmen? Not sure what we have in Tanev. Tanev's defense (positioning, composure and puck moving ability) has exceeded expectations, but can be better. Better than Ehrhoff's. He hasn't had much of an opportunity to show off offensive skill...
