Re: Prospects Thread 2011-12

Saturday Nov 12 Minnesota 4 Wisconsin 1 Matson 1 goal, 1 assist, +2 Labate 0 points, -1 Round 2 goes to Matson... S_C I saw round 1. Labate drew a couple of penalties, one on a terrific one on one play. High hockey iq for his age, and a BIG player. Weakness to me seemed to be his skating, which app...

Re: Nov 6 - Canucks at Blackhawks - 4:00 PM - SNET

Hodgson's defensive problem is not generically his defensive play against the man he is marking, though we have seen episodic laziness. It is not that he cannot win puck battles on the boards, though he is not better than average at this point. His primary defensive liability is that he simply isn't...

Re: GDT: Oct 10 - Canucks @ Columbus - 4pm - SNET-P(HD) RADI

Bieksa and Hamhuis have looked like the two defensemen most in regular season mode, but having two defensemen chase a guy behind the net to get in a hit is going to lead to a chance. Ginger didn't bail them out, but looks like the goalternder most in regular season mode. Jeff Carter + Rick Nash = Da...

Hometown Discounts, Hometown Premiums

Former Canucks first round draft pick R.J. Umberger inked a 5 year, $23 million extension with the Jackets . (Perhaps I should have linked to this article , as TSN is surely wrong when it writes (at the time of this posting) that he'll get paid $5 million this season as opposed to next season. RJ Um...

Re: America Is Eff'd!

You will notice that not only is the USA the OECD country with the lowest tax pressure, measured as tax revenue as a percentage of GDP, but it is also the only OECD country to have lower taxes in 2009 than in 1965. In 1965 the US taxes were on par with the OECD average (96.(% of the average OECD fi...

Re: America Is Eff'd!

I've never really understood why some think external debt is more interesting than total public debt. If I'm in debt I still owe the same amount of money whether I borrowed it from my Nephew or from the bank. I read that wiki site, too. But I was telling a joke. If you want to be serious, the if yo...

(On Sweden) We're the ones who do the Keynes thingy according to the book... even if Sweden happens to have a conservative PM leading a centre-right coalition government at the moment. (On the US) The problem is that some countries, like Greece and the USA, entered the recession already having defi...

Re: Topper's Grilling Advice!

Topper I need your help again! Five years ago you told me how to season and grill a steak. Since that day I’ve grilled every single steak following your instructions to the letter. I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve been told I grilled the best steak they’ve ever had. People telling me my stea...

I had a character, which was pretty out of character for me. Any guesses? Edit -- and I think that the fact that I had a sock that summer indicates just how great the of was that year WOW U-dub LOL!!

Re: When Power Goes to the Head of a Security Guard

For those who don't know what we're talking about.... well at our old site, sock accounts were perfectly legitimate (for example the owner/administrator was known to use various sock accounts just to stir things up - Trick/Tiger/RedLicorice/etc). So one summer out of sheer boredom we agreed to all ...
