Re: July 1, 2014, (and beyond) trades, signings , rumours

People who post interesting things about the interesting sport of hockey (Hockey Widow, I'm looking at you) are a delight. People who spend all their time desperately trying to prove they WERE right and ARE right and WILL BE right about everything are sad, boring, and - worst of all - repetitive. N...

So what was it? Shit sandwiches or dog shit? Or dog shit sandwiches? I better check Twitter to find out! Well, Cornuck, you've heard or read of 50 Shades of Grey, right? I guess you can say there at least 50 variations of that shit Coach Torts tried to peddle to Canucks' Nation. :( Don't break your...

Re: NFL Thread: Thoughts on the game south of the 49th

Jeff Pearlman penned a novel in the '90's called "Boys will be Boys - The Glory Days and Party Nights of the Dallas Cowboys". Whether that photo is real or a scam JJ was (allegedly) right in there with the players (according to Pearlman) banging and crashing with the strippers and ho's the team (in...

Re: 2014/15 Line Up projections

Unless Horvat really blows everyone away at camp I'm all for sending him back to junior. Richardson has one year left on his deal and he was pretty useful for us last year. I'd rather keep his experience around this year and let him walk as a FA next year, opening up a roster spot. Now I suppose if...

Re: July 1, 2014, (and beyond) trades, signings , rumours

In what fucking nightmare is Eklund considered a legitimate source? In the same nightmare that Pierre McGuire is an NHL coach and Cody Hodgson is a #1 centre. Anybody that believes either of those things is a fucking idiot . Not sure on PM, but I recall plenty of "elite shot", "elite level passing"...

Re: 2014/15 Line Up projections

Does anyone agree/disagree with me about how many minutes our 4th line will play? I'm saying it will be more like a... 3b line if you will... than a typical 4th line. Sorta gives a rookie like Horvat one extra line to crack than usual. (if it were a 5-minute 4th line, probably be better to send Bo ...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Announce the broadcast team?? Does this mean John and John or John or John are on the way out? I would think Shorty should be a lock and find it curious they wouldn't just say so. I wonder if Shorty will have to pick and choose between doing tv only or will he still be able to do both tv and radio....

Re: Canucks select Jared McCann at #24

Do you think that blogger would be as reliable or more so than some random hfboards guy that blob google searched for that is selling his draft expertise? The fact is that bloggers are not more reliable than any of us. They are not "professionals". With all due respect, Jovocop, I would say @BrockO...

Re: July 1, 2014, (and beyond) trades, signings , rumours

Anyone who thinks Eklund is a reliable source is a fucking idiot. Well, I would say a much bigger fucking idiot would be someone who somehow goes the low hanging fruit route and "finds" a 2015 NHL draft projection from a google search from a "nobody" and presents it to others here on canucks corner...
