This question is too obscure.

Would I trade Salo for who?

1. Would you trade Salo for Ryan Whitney of the Penguins? Yes

2. Would you trade Salo for a 2nd round pick? Maybe, depends on where I am in the standings.

3. Would you trade Salo for the rights to Doug Lidster? No.

Thats just what I suspected....its INSANE that Jaffray isn't signed to the Canucks. Nonis should get on that asap....I believe it was Manitoba who first signed Rypien and Burrows & not the Canucks....in fact Burrows had to begin on the Inferno before he made the jump to the Moose......and then the ...

How to complain to the CBC

www.cbc.ca/contact/index Here's the email to contact the CBC Tonight we get force fed the f*ckin' Maple Leaves yet again. I think this is every Saturday for 5 years straight. I would put up with it if it was even 75% of the time, but it is every single Saturday night for the past number of years. Th...

All I was trying to say was that if Bert didn't go Dirty Harry all we would have lost would be Naslund to a conky and the elbow, and as Kel pointed out he was wristing some pretty goals last season...I'm inclined to believe the hip/groin could be something. I don't want to hash it up anymore, suffi...

Ya, he broke the elbow when Steve Moore hit him. A concussion and a broken elbow to arguably one of the top 3 goal scorers at the time and no suspension. All from that one hit............ Smacks of a little bitterness and blame, dontcha think? All I said was you could replace the Moore hit with the...

Pretty biased view...I don't think it's the Moore hit, but the Bertuzzi hit. Don't get me wrong, I love the guy, but it wasn't Moore's fault. Had Bert not cranked him the way we did, all the things you mention (except Naslunds elbow, which I was unaware of) could have still played out. Let's not le...

That one moment in time had enormous consequences for the team. If the hit did not occur... 1. Does Vancouver lose to Calgary in the playoffs when...

Re: The offical "Fire Alain Vigneault" petition

First, please run us through your hockey coaching experience that would give you the legitimacy to critique the coaching . Not until you disclose your NHL playing experience that would give you the typical failsafe to blame the players. (Because it if ain't the coaching.. it's obviously the players...

Re: The offical "Fire Alain Vigneault" petition

I have started an online petition to fire Alain Vigneault from his head coaching duties. It is the coaching that is the major problem with this team. How many blind passes, turnovers, weak shots from the outside must you see to realize that Alain Vigneault's coaching and system is ineffective? If y...

New uniforms to be unveiled at the All star game

The guy who writes the uni-watch columns on the ESPN website says the new Reebok uniform designs will be unveiled at the All star game next month. He writes an inside source says traditionalist hockey fans will be "pissed off" at the new sleek designs. Apparantly all sweaters will be tucked in to th...

Re: Nonis Over Paid

[quote="dal"]Dave Nonis went out this summer throwing out money like he ran the old Rangers team. A few minor adjustments in salary would have saved the team tons in cap space. Here are a few examples: Luongo 6.75 mill Should have been 6.00 Mill ( he was ready to sign for less in Flordia so why did ...

A new environment? Do you have an example or two to prove your point?

Trade (insert player) to free up cap space?

Only 6 teams are on pace to be 4.5 million or more under the cap this year. The rest are right up against the cap or have little wiggle room. Washington - 15.9 million Pittsburgh - 11.2 m Nashville - 5.3 m St.Louis - 5.1m Anaheim - 4.7m Carolina - 4.6m If you want to dump Cooke, Morrison, Bulis, etc...

A more fair comparison...

I've noticed the mostly mindless sports media are now comparing the team's stats from the first 28 games last year to the first 28 games of this year. One guy brings it up, then every guy is talking about it. Very original. Would a better comparison not be the first 28 games of this year versus the ...

The only thing that needs to change is to fire the idiot that figured Naslund kicked that puck in the net.
OK, the rule is fine. Now, what exactly is the rule?
