We put in optic fibre some 15 years ago; same time as we switched to district heating.
They had a package deal, so adding fibre got cheaper.

For those like me that know nothing about Burmistrov, here is a little backgrounder from CanucksArmy:

I just said they have more young talent than Vancouver regardless of winning the lottery. You have trouble reading ?


RD has selective reading.

Doc has selective posting.

I can't spell.

Blob is a tiny tiny tiny tiny bit negative on our beloved GM.

But we all fracking hate Toronto SN.

To come off pretending not to be biased really pisses me off. I may be a jackass but every time I hear them having financial troubles I love it. Maybe if they stopped sticking their heads up the Jays and Laughs ass they may get more people running in.

To hear that Laughs got a A for their FA day is pure bs.


Your not a jackass at all and your not the only one that's frustrated. Sportsnet has become absolutely pathetic and we certainly haven't received any reductions in our provider costs, far from it.
The two big Alberta markets don't get as much "nose in the air" attitude as we do but they can't be happy about their regional studio being shut down either.
Hey, I'm not saying that Don Taylor & Garry Valk were a great show but this is ridiculous.
They have cut costs to the point of insanity.
How much can it cost to have a dinky little regional studio? That's all it was anyways, I know, I was in there once.
I understand running re-runs all night, I guess, however there are some entertaining programs they could be running at night but W/E.
During the day we have to watch their Toronto based talk shows which mean nothing to most of us.
The only reason they still technically call the two stations I'm referring to-(sportsnet pacific & sportsnet west), is to broadcast the local team's games. Not good enough!!!!!


I agree but as long as we have blobbers who believe automatically that because it's local it must amateur night, why would sportsnet.ca spend a nickel they don't have too?


The CFL is certainly amateur. Speaking of spending a nickel....... isn't that about the average price for a Lions ticket ?

Our town got fibre optic last year because the Canadian gov't is paying the telecoms to get rural areas up to speed. It's taking time to reach everywhere, but slowly it is happening.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Yes, I worked with one of these telecoms the last few years to expand to the first dozen or so of these rural communities.

It is happening slowly and those that have gotten fibre, are happy as pig in sh*t. I also wonder if those towns that built their own network earlier are now regretting it?

Tell us has just completed their upgrades in Vancity too. Install this week for me.

Darryl Seward named #Canucks new Video Coach.

Vancouver Canucks Head Coach Travis Green confirmed today that Darryl Seward has been named Video Coach. Seward will work alongside Green, Assistant Coaches Newell Brown, Nolan Baumgartner, Doug Jarvis and Manny Malhotra, Goaltending Coach Dan Cloutier and Skill Coach Glenn Carnegie.

"Darryl has a passion for the game and brings experience to the role, highlighted by a Calder Cup Championship in 2016," said Green. "We are excited to welcome Darryl to our staff and to the organization."

Seward, 44, joins the Canucks from the AHL Cleveland Monsters where he has served as Video Coach for two seasons, helping the team to the 2016 Calder Cup. Prior to joining the Monsters, Seward had stints as Video Coach with the Springfield Falcons (2014.15) and Syracuse Crunch (2012.13).

Prior to his professional career, Seward served as Assistant Video Coach for the QMJHL Moncton Wildcats from 2008 to 2012, where he helped the club capture the 2010 President's Cup.

Canucks sign Archibald to AHL deal. Looks like no Canucks for him.

Daliwal reporting Canucks speaking to agent for Dwight King. Guess Benning wants some more 4th line toughness to support Dorsett.

King is a decent player with size but he isn't particularly physical. Had a couple of real good playoff runs with LA . He throws the odd big hit but is very inconsistent. His brother DJ was an animal though.

Not the best plan but it just happened so I guess we give it some time to figure that one out.

From SN

“I want to thank Trevor Linden and the Vancouver Canucks organization for allowing Rollie to join the New Jersey Devils,” Devils general manager Ray Shero said via a press release. “Rollie is well-respected throughout the League as a teacher and his experience with various goaltenders will be very beneficial. Additionally, I have enjoyed working with [former Devils goalie coach] Chris [Terreri] the past two years and am very happy that he will remain with the organization. His knowledge and passion will help us continue to grow as a team.”


Tough loss for the team as he has done wonders for our young goalies but Dan has been doing a great job too and Markstrom in particular enjoys a close bond with him. The biggest loss might be for Demko development, or not.
