You're confusing. This quote was made by you in the other thread re: Luongo vs Schneider:

"It's the same bullshit this board pulled after the Hodgson trade. A kid you were all creaming your underoos about is suddenly not very good and we're lucky to be rid of him."

Just curious, what would possess you to have a 'handle' (Rumsfeld) that comes from the biggest DICK ever in north american politics/history??
Just what the fuck is confusing about my quote, miss ster? Comprehension issues?

Maybe you should sit a few plays out and leave the reading to the big kids.

My handle is none of your business, I don't go around asking you why you would choose a screen name that sounds like it originated from the lips of a toddler.

And a true "cc oldtimer" (poser :lol: ) wouldn't need to ask that question Orcasaman...

Now kindly piss off.

Now now, mr rumpster. I just madesome simple observations no need to get 'ugly' about it.
But you know, come to think of it, the handle suits you perfectly. You mirror the ORIGINAL Rumsfeld quite well, except, well he was/is the original.

Every observation you make is simple, lady. :stupid:

So are you going to acknowledge that my quote made perfect sense and that you have reading comprehension issues or are you just going to run and hide like a coward for another couple months? Maybe run to the mods again first like a little bitch?

I'm cool with either. 8-)

Fair enough. I agree with your point about the need for Kassian to step up; our options are limited and if he fails to produce the way we need him to, then yeah, for sure, the Hodgson trade begins to look really bad. The one quote of yours that I brought over here, suggested that Hodgson was under performing, then in a later submission you wrote on here, you state that you're getting tired of Hodgson getting a point a game hi-lite on sportsnet. But when I reread your post, i see that you mention this as part of a speculation about what could happen this up an coming season - you wouldn't like to see Hodgson achieve while Kassian doesn't... so yeah, i guess what was confusing was my take on it. No intense disrespect intended.

I don't pretend to be a 'heavy-weight' on here. I'm well educated, and a passionate canuck hockey fan, but I usually don't have the time to really delve into IT and become part of the on-going canucks corner personality show (you have to admit that there are some really amusing personalities on here sometimes). I mostly appreciate the insight and opinions that are offered. So yeah, you're right, my opinions are fairly light weight in comparison to many if not most- can't argue with that. Still curious though, if u don't mind, what would possess u to embrace a handle like yours? (i brought mine over over from the canuck central days... it was all i could tink of at the time).

Ahem. I recall there was one poster who say the deficiencies in his game and noted where he would struggle. I believe that same poster had questions about the players attitude as far back as the WJC.

But alas, water under the bridge now that the kid is Darcy's problem.

If i recall correctly, the Great Strangelove was firmly entrenched on the fence in regards to Hodgson

... and often questioned how Hodgson could ever fit on a team with HanK & Kess as the top two centres.

Not everyone was sold on Hodgson and most felt Kassian was a better fit in more ways than one.

Kassian is looking like he could be a great fit.

One could almost get the impression that rummy isn't happy with the direction Gilly has decided to take your Vancouver Canucks..
Personally I would like to see Kassian under Torts direction before we start muttering sandlak under our breath.

Liked where he was going until last season. Ballard sucked in hindsight but I understood it at the time.

Now I'm like OMGWTF'ing all over the damn place.

Alberts Wants to Re-Sign
“There remains interest by a couple of teams and Andrew was hoping to come back to Vancouver,” Alberts’ agent, Kurt Overhardt told the Vancouver Province. “We especially think with the new coaching staff that he would fit in because he’s a big, strong warrior and knows his role.”
Looks like Alberts would be willing to come back to Vancouver, and I'd take him back (depending on what he wants). I'd like a meaner guy back there, but for a 6-7 guy I'd take him. This team lacks what Alberts brings (big body, physical), and he didn't disgust me with his play last season. Give him 1 year @ $1M.

Alberts or Fristic? Alberts knows the system and gives his all but is 32 years old, not likely to improve. On the other hand, Fristic is only 27 years old, still has some room to improve... :?

With only 5 million left in cap space and still needing to get Tanev and Weise under contract I don't think we will see the Canucks add much depth until those two deals are done. With our luck the arbitrator will award Dale 2.5 million and we can't walk away. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:


No No No i'm not saying he is anywhere near worth that, just with our luck we get a stupid arbitration award. :evil:
