Canucks aren't playing video games so they're trolling Matheson in their spare time now.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Happy Cannabis Day to y'all!
Was never certain we would ever see the day when legalization would happen - so even though its a work night, i had to proudly stand in the front yard and greet this new reality bestowed upon us with a dubie. I'm proud of Canada for doing this. Anyways,

Maybe i can kill two birds on one occasion here: gotta give JB credit for following thru with what he said he would do, and down Gagner went. Plus, there's no doubt that Green is quite happy to have decent skill/talent on thd 3rd and 4th.
I hope Nilsson continues to 'rock'

Time to spark another one

Any word on why Gaudette's toi was kinda low?
low compared to what? I bet if it was compared to other rookies of other teams in their first game of the year, its right on target...
Other second line scoring centers, you know where is was penciled as a starter by the coach?

What I saw, I thought he was not bad at all. Great stride, quick.
Maybe the plan was keep it short.
Wids thought maybe he wasn't using his team mates enough and Green didn't like that. Could be true but with the coach not giving a presser, (that I've heard of yet), can't say.
If he did get grounded, I might be a wee bit :evil: .
Actually it would be a little ironic because wasn't that almost exactly Goldobin's problem before Elias entered the picture?
Yeah I thought he looked decent. And why start him on the second line if you're just gonna double shift Bo. Seemed a little weird to me is all. Thought y'all might have heard something.

A coworker was stating that in their opinion the EP slam was a hockey play and that no one should get concussed from such a move. So I invited him to the neighborhood Judo club on the condition that he let me throw him once. I taught him the break falls, which he didn't think he needed. Anyway one seoi nage was enough for him to call in sick this morning. I think his perspective changed. I'm sort of concerned about getting arrested today but I mean he signed the club waiver. Any lawyers in the crowd?

Did Gaudette score top shelf on his first shot?
No.
He's got to earn his ice time. :D

Trust the process.
The team was playing well, so I have no problem keeping him on short shifts until his offense clicks either here or in Utica.
I'm hoping he becomes more than a checker, but it is up to him to prove it.

Lol that's a great story! Maybe next you can demonstrate on Eric Francis?

Love it. That's awesome...sort of. There have been way too many idiots claiming Pettersson wouldn't have a concussion if he was bigger. The back of your head hits the ice, your brain slams into the inside of your skull = concussion. In fact, if you want to bring momentum into it, a bigger brain/skull might have made it worse. P = mv

I held onto his arm and grabbed the back of his borrowed Gi so that he wouldn't scramble his brain. I just wanted to demonstrate that the mass of his body, combined with gravity and applied force/momentum can EASILY injure someone. I went about 1/4 speed on mats (but not the crash mat). So in reality the EP slam was far worse. I'm pretty certain he no longer believes uncontrolled throws on a hard surface are hockey plays.
