When the Canucks' table a legitimate offer for Malkin that's been reported then come back and write to me and than you can say you're ahead of the curve.

Anyways...hopefully you can maintain your PPD average. Always quality.


Thanks. I'm all about Q&Q. (Quality and Quantity). Canucks should be about D&D (Drafting and Development). If not trade said picks for someone like Myers. :mex:

He's actually doing far better than that. After 89 days he's racked up a staggering 1128 posts. Good for an 13.2 PPD average. :shock:

I don't know Blob .... you whine and cry like a hack when it comes to the guys at the Province, whom IMO, provide the best coverage of the Canucks when it comes to print media.

The Sun is okay but it's vanilla in comparison. :mex:

Definitely, if you consider The National Enquirer as having the best coverage of current events.

The National Enquirer breaks a lot of stories first before the MSM, so yeah .... oh, and I don't think they don't use dubious chain e-mails as reliable sources. :mex:

Seriously!

"you don't think they don't??"

Does that mean you think they do use dubious chain emails as reliable sources? Kind of refutes your point no?

lol ... just typing quickly ...... but I think I could use a "real world" example on why you shouldn't use dubious chain e-mail as a source of information. I think you can too, eh? :mex:

Bill Good Jr. announces his retirement from the broadcasting industry. Started in the Sports Field with CBC Sports before settling as a News Anchor on Local TV and then long time News Talk Show Host on CKNW.

Although focused on "serious news", he did have a keen interest in the local sports scene. His last major sports interview, IIRC was with Quinn and Linden (just after he was hired) ......

TG most egregious comment was that Horvat doesn't fit the profile of a 4th line centre.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

The issue I would have with a young prospect playing on the 4th line is the ice time or lack there of. He has to play in the top 3 lines or else it's probably better to send him back to junior.

Even if Gaunce ultimately becomes a 4th line centre at the NHL level ...... he's better playing in the AHL getting lots of ice time in a top 9 role than being a bench warmer besides the likes of Sestito. :mex:

A lot of people are underselling our first round picks.

Who picks someone 9th overall with the idea that they are going to be a great third line centre.

Lets not squeeze the offensive upside out of our prospects before they play a few games in the NHL.

Fuck, if guys like Mason Raymond, CoHo, and Grabner can contribute in the NHL surely the five 1RPs in the cupboards can aim higher than elite checkers.
