Bug people? Nah. The truth hurts you.

So Reefer, your idea of "ignoring" RD involves responding to practically all of his posts over the last year?

I usually tune out the homer commentary when watching games, sound off or music playing, but last night I tuned in. LOL

Mulofkintire, holy shit. Screws up his face like he's standing in fresh dog shit while ragging on Genius Jim's TDD performance and return for Vanek and Holm, then concludes the segment by saying, "we've known for weeks there was a limited market' there wouldn't be many deals on offer and the day played out just as expected."

Just prior to the third starting there is a BS segment on the lil' trojan. For christ sake, he'd been a pylon for most of the game. A small speedbump to forechecker. A turnover machine behind his net, but that segment drew focus to the runt and he didn't disappoint. he embraced the role of being a pylon and took it to dramatic heights. Thank you John Garratt.

Hilarious to hear Friedman call the media and fans toxic and negative. Canucks management has gotten a free pass for the product they put on the ice.

Friedmann is right

1040 has turned into the land of chicken littles, led by Bitchford, Halford and Brough, Patterson, Sekeres and Price. It's quite sad, especially the fans who eat that shit up

Who’s eating anything up ? If anyone is eating anything it’s Ian McIntyre chomping on the cocks of Linden and Benning.

So TODAY Friedman doesn't know what he's talking about, but YESTERDAY:

Friedman is the best insider in the league next to Mckenzie.

Friedman has turned TMZ now, he doesn't speak much on insider info anymore, it's more conjecture.
Sure he has. I guess Eklund is a good source for you. :)
Agenda much? :lol:

The fans are cynical because they were fed bullshit for several years about not needing a rebuild, that this management team was capable of "retooling on the fly". The city (and many posters on this distinguished message board) have been calling for a rebuild since Benning came aboard (and even prior). Instead, we got some freak hybrid middle-of-the-road monster for the first couple years. Now that we're actually firmly into rebuild mode, they should be allowed to say "I told you so".

Linden was suppose to be the mediator between team direction/general mgmt and ownership, the guy to convince the owners to consider a rebuild. He's whimping out as he seems to be the one pushing the - make the playoffs/retool on the fly bullshit, which is a tall order that requires horseshoes at the draft table. As Ferraro keeps saying as well as pretty much every pundit out there says " you can't do both" which really points to the fact that linden has either failed at convincing the Aquas of a rebuild or he truly is phoning it in and is just enjoying the job lacking the gonads in directing ownership for a restart. It's like he's running this team like its one of his Club 16's.

Prior to Shanahan entering Leafdom the word rebuild in Toronto was a no go, no Leaf President had the balls to say "fuck you all, we are tearing this down and going full rebuild". Now look at the excitement in that city, but like we saw on the ice, Linden is no Shanahan.

Nearly every fan in this city is crying for a tear down and an end to the Sedin era. It's not the playoffs this city cares about its hope, it's a bright future they want, a beginning of a new chapter. People really need to fuck off with the "this city can't handle a rebuild", that's just Linden listening to the media, instead of his heart. The media does the ying/yang bullshit to create listenership, nothing like a good debate to create listenership, but we need a president who can cut through all that bullshit like Shanahan has.

For some reason 'bold moves' in the Canucks offices is a "don't go there" whisper behind the owners backs. "Don't want to get fired"!

Linden you suck, you're as whimpy as a president as you were on the ice".
