Projects? So you know the endgame already?
If you know something about the grand Master Plan that explains how the players Benning drafted in 2018 are not part of the palette for the Masterpiece, but are just valuable trade assets to be flipped for something else as the plan comes to fruition, please share.

Woo at 6’-0 200 lbs is small? Yeah/k
Not small, just not significantly or imposingly big. Just a little bit smaller than an average NHL player in 2004.

Certainly not big enough to bring the Canucks 2018 draft class up to the 2014 average.

No, I've never seen one.

I'm going to extrapolate where you were going, rather than request clarification. I think my posting history makes it pretty clear that I think hockey is more entertaining to watch when it is a game of skill rather than a game of cheap thuggery. However, even as a casual fan the sting of 2011 remains fresh, and I have yet to be convinced that the League has come to same conclusion about the kind of product it wants to market.

If you have better insight on the direction the League is taking, please share.

Well, well that’s the million dollar question where the game is going, am I the only in hockey earth that says the game is changing to a more high tempo, speed, skill, quick transitional game where there is no room for errors like consistently getting penalties from poor positional play, poor gap control having a poor stick, chasing hits, consistently being on the wrong side of the puck etc.

There is no obstructing a player without the puck anymore. Officials are being way tighter with interference, holding, picking, slashing the stick etc., which has opened the door for the small, speedy skilled players big time. You’re just being an ass if you think the game hasn’t changed this way. Sorry but your Dana Murzyns wouldn’t even get a cup of coffee in the NHL today.

You wearing bell bottoms. where a long leather coat, with leathered high heeled boots and sport an Afro RG?

Remember - Blob is 5’-11” and on record has said he floats between 230 lbs and 240 lbs.

In my mind, I see a picture of health

Terrific. I sincerely look forward to watching more of this brave new NHL, especially the next time the Canucks are in the Stanley Cup final.

And -- just checking, mind you -- there will also be no cheap hits to injure, and no need for players to protect themselves or each other through fighting, right ?

Sadly, no. I would be very pleased to be able to grow an Afro.

Not that there's anything wrong with that -- in the NHL of the Future.

I have no problem with short people. Dude for whatever reason is adamant that I’m 5ft 10. 6ft all day, every day. He is riddled with back hair, with a pretty big shit bag, a few chins, tiny little bird legs,skinny Kermit the frog pipes and has slightly more strands than Doc. He could be 6 ft tall if he puts his KISS boots on, they go great with his spandex pants and wife beater.

Did you know that Blob once bragged about his “beer shelf”?

A beer shelf is when a big beer bellied red neck, 5’-11” 235 lbs like Blob sits down in his lawn chair and where his belly meets his rib cage a level shelf is formed by his belly (a plateau), capable of supporting a paper plate of BBQ’ed Maui ribs, cole slaw, Ripple chips, a polski ogorki pickle and a plastic cup of Russell’s draft beer while watching slow pitch ball in Haney

It’s called an ab shelter :lol:

Thing is I actually have abs under the blubber. You have as much muscle tone as Tony Gallagher underneath the Chris Farley build.

Duncan Keith, who I consider the prototypical mobile yet tough, skilled yet hard-hitting, modern defenceman, it's 6'1 , 192 lbs.

For an 18 year old to play at 200 lbs is frankly freakish. He has to be thicc to play at that weight.
