There's no way he's real. Maybe Brian has one? Could he?
I was doing 12s and then spent my free time puking up the camp slop then spanking with my last remaining moments of consciousness.
Now I'm on the backside of my shift so gotta save it up for the misses ;)

My young son, he's three, I shouldn't be grandfather for at least another ten years, corrected me for using foul language the other day.

Think about it.

I like Riksters postings, always have. It's just so Arachnid to be an uncalled for asshole to a decent poster.

My top 3 choices for coach are: 1) Dave Tippett 2) John Stevens 3) Lindsay Ruff unless of course Mike Babcock becomes available, and then he moves to number 1....

This whole coaching too much defense or not developing young players criticism of coaches remains infinitely amusing. If you look closely at every successful NHL coach, you will find most have had difficulties with some young players (some aren't as ready as some fans may think) and most have coached stifling defensive hockey at some point.

Why?

Because a good coach should be adept at instilling different types of systems and it's all predicated on the type of roster a coach has at his disposal.

As Donny pointed out, Tippett can coach offensive hockey if he has the horses and there's a track record of solid special teams play where he's coached.

I would have no problems with him becoming the Canucks next head coach. None of us really know how good a coach really is since we're not privy to most of their daily dealings but hiring a coach who has a record of getting the most out of his teams is nothing to scoff at.

The coaches that I want us to stay away from are the Lindy Ruff types who haven't shown an ability to adapt to the new way of coaching today's players in the current state of the NHL.

that's high praise coming from you BD! :mrgreen: farts use to say the same thing about me, I was insignificant, I was nothing to him, he said I never got under his skin...then that asshole had to chase him away by lowering the board IQ...poor stinker :cry:

if it's any consolation bud, I think you should be the next coach of Your Vancouver Canucks...that way people could see the real you and not the fake internet version :D

In 90 posts he has not said one god damn relevant thing and then he has the nerve to tell us to take care...

Take Care of what? Business? Hockey? Petunias? Aunt May? Prostrate?
Since you asked....A long, long time ago I wrote a post which contained a swear word... A fellow poster chastised me for my language while informing me that he was sitting at his desk with his grandson reading the message board when they came across my post and that he didn't appreciate my language...

Embarrased, I thought about it and realized that he was right...Why speak any differently to a person on a computer than you would if you were speaking to them face to face?...

When I say goodbye to somebody in person, I often say "take care", I don't see any reason to change when giving my opinions on a message board....

Relevant......hmmmmm...

While you think its retarded to suggest that the Canucks aren't looking for a number of coaches to fill their numerous vacancies while interviewing a long list of candidates, I think its naive and retarded to think otherwise....

The fact that the local media are now suggesting that some of the candidates being interviewed will eventually find work as assistants in Vancouver or coaches on the farm makes it relevant....

Speaking of relevant, I can't say I know who you are and I can't comment on your hockey knowledge because from the little time I've spent reading some of your posts I found you don't really say anything that has much value to the topics being discussed....

I appreciate Rumsfield having my back on this one, but don't worry about me getting hurt feelings or being intimidated, I never shy from a good debate....

Bullies like you remind me of the time another bully who went by the handle "The Thinker" left this board for that other Canuck board....

We had had our battles and when I PM'd him to let him know I would miss him, he replied that I was the reason he was leaving.....Seems he was better at giving than he was taking...

Speaking of that other Canuck board, I moved on when many of its posters found a new home here...I'm not much of a fan of the style of posting that goes on here now so I took my act elsewhere....

I came back after reading some of Hockey Widows posts, I don't dispute that she has some source(s) but I would suggest that those sources have agendas ....

At the end of the day, I like to talk hockey and I especially like to talk hockey with fans I don't agree with...

Agree, disagree, ignore, whatever, just try to keep it to hockey and ditch the name calling and bullying....I does nothing more than cause some to wonder where and what you were doing on the night of June 15th, 2011....

Later...

i agree that we need a new coach with the abilities to change with the league...as well as changing systems during the season that expose the weaknesses of other teams...i think...

We also need players that can change their style of play.

Sedins are too predictable and need to mix their game up a little.

Looks like AV to the Rangers is a done deal. Good thing for Coach V, the Rangers have an all star goalie.

I don't know how much they can do that. The twins are good stickhandlers and fantastic passers but when you can't skate, hit or shoot the puck with velocity, there's only so much you can do to vary your attack.

The problem with the twins' game is that once they lose the puck they very rarely get it back... and in the playoffs it's harder to maintain possession for extended periods in the corners. There is little question at this point that teams have figured out how to take the cycle away and the Sedins need to be more willing to crash the crease.
