Ya, that is hard to believe from him and his agent.
Don't really buy that.
Positive though; He proved to himself that he could still play at the highest level so maybe he'll adjust that list a wee bit, the cap space would help.
We can just throw Demko right into the NHL next year, (I'm kidding!) about that.
Next week are the player meetings with Benning.
One of us needs to sneak into his office, plant one of those mini recording devises, and we could all have those little ear wigs like on NCIS Los Angelis.
I'd love to hear some of those chats this year. Burrows, Miller, Hamhuis, Sbisa and on and on :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

What did you pay for your driver's license?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

LOL, everyone on the south side of the river went to Cloverdale to do their test because it was the easiest place around.

I did mine in New West.

Don't know where else to post this, so I'll try here...

Thinking of going to the final game of the season on Saturday, but don't want to break the bank.

Stub Hub and Vivid Seats are selling upper bowl tickets in the $75 range, I don't trust craigslist (ebay maybe). Looking for 3 tickets - doesn't matter where we sit, but by the looks of the arena on TV lately, looks like even the scalpers are having a hard time moving tickets.

I recall hearing a while back that some scalpers were selling tickets for $20 a pop - I don't know how true that is/was, or even if an all Canadian, final regular season game would be that cheap....

Any idea on what on-site scalpers asking these days?

I've been scammed on Stubhub, asshole sold tickets several times!

Craigslist is fine if you get hard tickets.

Have no idea what on site scalpers are asking.

West side Point Grey for me. There weren't enough parked cars on the streets back then to even have to do a proper back up parallel parking manoeuver.

Did my motorcycle road test in Burnaby. Of course it had to fuckin' rain.

You seriously couldn't find 2 cows in Cloverdale back then?

"Ok son, put it between those two jerseys. Tip 'em over and you fail."

Man, we are old. I remember when the written test was actually written.

Me too!

16 years old, didn't know the streets on that side of town, and was driving pop's pride-n-joy Caddy for the first time.

Passed with flying colours... but to be honest I had about 2 years driving experience by then. :sly:
