Re: GDT - 10/16 - Canucks @ Detroit 4:30 - TSN

How about Salo and Edler playing over 27 minutes?? And can someone help me out here. I could have sworn Gord Miller said that Salo has over 30 documented injuries during his pro career, one of them being a bite from a poisonous snake. Yup, a poisonous snake - in Finland. Sounds like a coverup for s...

Re: GDT - 10/16 - Canucks @ Detroit 4:30 - TSN

"Fun to watch" indeed!!
Detroit wasn't pulling any punches either.
Loved it!

If Burrows keeps this up I hope the ladies start providing the lingerie. 8-)

Re: GDT- Canucks @ Washington - 4pm PPV, VS

Just what the Doctored ordered to give this team a TRUE test of what we will see this year. an arse kicking to keep our heads (fans, media and team) a shake and the true measure is next. I agree entirely. This was such a collosal bad effort by nearly everyone that it's really not an indication of a...

Re: GDT- 10/9 - Flames at the Garage - 7:30 - CBC(HD)

Wow! They played exactly as I had hoped they would play given the moves over the summer. I really couldn't understand why so many people I know were dissing the Canucks and saying they weren't really excited for the season to start. I guess they didn't keep up with the news and see the trades that w...

Re: Interesting way to promote Dallas Stars Ice Girls

Whoever the photographer was who took the individual head shots at the bottom of that page should be tarred and feathered. Someone must have told him it's important they don't look too pretty.

Re: Mitchell vs. Ohlund for Captain

Mitchell absolutely, it's just a natural fit on so many levels. He's *very* good with the p.r. stuff, even taking the time to do it in the off season on the radio, he's local, he's not going anywhere for the forseeable future and he's got the ability to project a calmness when things are going to sh...

Re: Are you Pumped?

I don't know JC. I think if I wanted to change the style I'd have changed the person responsible for that style. Not sign him for two more years. A.V made no apologies for the style the Canucks played last season and even compared them to the Pens. I have nothing personal against A.V but I'm not su...

Re: Are you Pumped?

I think things will be different this year and the hockey will be more exciting to watch. Exciting hockey has been mandated by the new ownership, new GM and to the coach so we should expect nothing less and complain bitterly if they don't deliver. :) Anyone who is *still* expecting boring hockey thi...

While I don't read the Sun or the Province regularly I tend to agree with you Badfish whe it comes to other forms of journalism which show all the signs you mentioned. It's the same problem across the board, particularly here in North America, too little research too much driven by the need to sell ...

So sorry JCardinal… I don’t dismiss the media with a wave. I’m one of those people that want greater accountability from the media. I think that’s what everyone should be demanding… rather than putting up with National Enquirer style slander. Nope, sorry, just read a bunch of Macintyre's ...

The articles coming out of Vancouver towards Demitra (for example) are really dumb. The last couple of years he’s been stuck in Minnesota under Lemaires system. If you listen to the conference call after the signing (and funny, I haven’t seen this written anywhere… even though I think it was ...

I see people complain all the time here about the "media" but I rarely see anyone post about what they would actually like to see in place of what we have now. Let's face facts, it's the off season, there really isn't much to write about at the moment and even when there is it's really just a small ...

If Sundin comes here at 10 mill I'm done with this team. I don't just follow a crest! I get emotionallly attached to the players that play there heart out for me.
