Thanks for the welcome. Glad to see all the familiar faces. Strange to have CC go down like that but I'm glad to be a part of this community. Perhaps *now* we can win a cup? :lol:

Just another friendly reminder...

What happened at Central stays at Central

In other words, the feuds and the hates and the petty spats can be deleted along with the rest of the site. Please don't bring all of that here. Please don't continue to discuss it here. If you fee that there is some unfinished business, discuss it in PMs.

This is a different site, and while we understand that many of you are coming here with over a decade of history/baggage, the rest us here are hoping that you'll all get a "fresh start" and stop digging up the past.

Thanks,

Your suddenly busy mod.

Yes, but like a lot of things, moderation is the key. Excessive swearing won't be tolerated, and you'll be asked to tone it down.

Where is the Lions thread? I cant find it....can we make one or am I missing it somewhere?

I think the Leos might regret giving up(throwing away) Messam....but after I heard this quote its not surprising he was traded.

It was an unceremonious end to a troubled one-year tenure with the team that saw him break the jaw of popular receiver Paris Jackson in a locker-room fight and get convicted for beating up a bouncer at the Barking Frog nightclub in London, Ont.

Hi Fellow Canuckleheads,

I'm a "sort of" refugee from Canucks Central. Haven't posted there in ages, but was always an avid lurker. Enjoyed reading the insightful posts of Lever, Potatoe, Per, Hockey Widow and the like. I posted under the name "Toastbastard" when I was more active.

Like many of you, I was shocked to find out that Central had closed its doors after returning from vacation. (Judging from the responses about the subject, I'd rather not know the details.) I knew for awhile that Canucks Corner existed and attracted quality posters such as Strangelove and Lotus Blossom so I lurked here a few times to complement my Canucks fix. When I accessed this forum to see if there was any detailed news about Central's demise not only did I find it, but I was pleased to find most of the characters from Central have migrated over here.

I feel that Brian's commitment to keeping this forum welcoming and respectful as well as the addition of a wider range of quality posters and the promise of a fresh start will encourage me to post more often. I have been harboring feelings about how the Canucks handled themselves during the last Stanley Cup Final and wanted to express myself about these, but had to get over the pain of losing first and then took a 3 week vacation afterwards. Perhaps I can take this opportunity to reconnect with some of you, and also make new connections as we travel forward on the the good ship Canuck together.

Although I wish Chris well in his new endeavours, I look forward to contributing to this forum and making it my primary place for Canucks news and discussion.

Shocked but not at all surprised... if thats possible.

July 9th, I was half way down the Oregon Coast with the family when we got to a Fred Meyer with free wi-fi. Having major withdrawls from being cut off from any hockey news what so ever for 5 whole days I made... let the wife do the shopping so I could catch up........

Boom went the dynamite. :(

I'm now at a campsite in Anaheim with wi-fi and I finally got to hook up the Mac mini. Thanks to all of you who directed me to Canuckscorner. (I love you guys :blush:)

I don't have time right now to read all 16 pages in this thread but when I get back from dragging the kids and my new hip across Dinsneyland tonight I will definitely read all of it. I briefly saw a lot of familiar names here, recent and from the past, and I'm really looking forward to contributing (what I can) here.
2011..... the one that got away.
