Round 1 Discussion (non Canucks)

Could it get any worse for Minny. Backstrom gets injured during the warm up and cannot start. Josh Harding in net with a rookie back up. I am actually beginning to feel sorry for the Wild.

Re: 2013 NHL Draft Order

Non-playoff teams should play have their own "playoff for the pick". A one and done format. Same reverse order as playoff teams. Winner of this little tournament gets first pick and order determined from there. No more failing for the first pick. You have to fight for it. Would be fun and a little ...

Re: Burke Sues for Defamation

Oh no doubt that they will have people monitoring and doing whatever they need to to keep track of this. And rightly so. Isn't it wonderful to know that they read us and care about what we have to say? :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Re: Burke Sues for Defamation

Isn't it amazing that the Toronto Star can now spell out in some detail the exact nature of the rumour for the whole world to see and read about and because there is a Statement of Claim out there the comments are considered fair comment. Which means I guess people everywhere can now openly discuss ...

Re: Burke Sues for Defamation

Again, if it is true it is not defamation and can be freely discussed in a public forum. So if we know something to be true it is fair game. That is the line really. Defamation is something that is false and malicious or careless disregard for the truth. And Canadians don't have a constitutional rig...

Re: 2013 NHL Draft Order

Avs win number 1, Panthers drop to 2 and the rest stay the same as the order they finished. How do the Avs do it?

Speaking of wow, there are 164 pages on Cowpuke discussing their draft position.

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Coilers, 7pm PST - CBC

Thanks HW. I'm just thinking for all the good press, the fact that Lou has been left in a couple times this season to be shelled has really put a bitter taste in his mouth. With that and the fact he really does have the power on a NTC and we are so short of cap for next season, I think Lou could fo...

You are the only one that thinks that way there Craig.
I for one would be thrilled if they could be like the Kings and knock off the President Trophy winning team in the first round.

Re: Canucks Vs Sharks, Round I

I think it is a wash flipping Kesler and Roy. Perhaps Roy is a better set up man and/or Kesler is a better checker? Looks like AV is trying to establish that checking line, which means Kesler will get a lot of ice time. He has also played very well with Higgins int he past. Just find a balance so we...

Re: Canucks Vs Sharks, Round I

I agree Alberts deserves to draw in. He has been fairly steady and a good physical presence. Bieksa with Edler I think is more a comment on how Edler cannot play the right side and needs a solid R'dman beside him whereas Hamhuis and Garrison work well together. Not a slight on Elder as I think a lot...

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Coilers, 7pm PST - CBC

HArd to know what is really going on but I agree it was a totally meaningless game. Just disappointed for Luongo the way his last two went but then I remind myself that is the role of the back up sometimes, to play in these meaningless games. I am deeply disappointed in how the game went and how th...

Re: NHL not affected by lockout

In two years the cap will be higher than it is now. Its short term pain for the teams that can spend. The real consequence of the lock out will be to widen he gap between the have players and the have not players. Sounds like real life with the elimination of the middle class.

Re: Canucks Vs Sharks, Round I

I am surprised and happy to learn our first round games will be on TSN! TSN has a much better picture and overall product. We'll probably get Cuthbert and Ferraro, who I very much enjoy as broadcasters, and we will avoid Cherry, Weekes, Hrudey, Stock and Simpson, who I cannot stand. Ya, I'm OK with...

Re: Burke Sues for Defamation

Wow, how absurd is this? I remember reading Aaron's copy and paste job a few months ago, and thought that the accusations sounded totally unfounded and ridiculous. Totally absurd that Aaron is being thrown in with those who created and initially spread these defamatory comments. See thats just it. ...

Re: Women in the dressing room

I absolutely agree there needs to be a code and if we allow access for women to men's dressing rooms we need to allow men access to women's dressing rooms. And ya, I agree a hold back of 30 minutes and some sort of interviewing area should be allowed and the rest of the dressing room closed to all r...
