THIS or THAT? (new thread)

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Poker because there is more to it. You have to play the odds just like blackjack but you also have to play a table of skilled competators who are not also playing the odds but are bluffing.

Blondes or Read heads?

Sort of like the fling you dream of with Taylor?

Ha! That's really quite funny. At one time, Taylor was a God. Unfortunately, ever since he left Sportspage, it's been all downhill for him. He used to work with guys like Shorthouse, now he's stuck with idiots.

So that's the next this or that: The Idiot(tm) or the F-head Ferraro (also an idiot)?

Burr because he's also a fairly good penalty killer.

Pyatt or Raymond with the Sedins?

Tough call. Pyatt's the proven commodity where as Raymond's the potential for magic. I'd have to go Raymond to start the year.

I loved how dangerous that line looked. They could cycle with the best and kill you with breakout speed as well. If Raymond falters you can always plop him back on the Moose to develop and Pyatt can step in without missing a beat.

Hmmm...which Canadian team would you prefer to see win the cup. Calgary or Montreal?

Montreal a thousand times over....

Same question, but the Flames or the Leafs?

I'd prefer the Cup not to be awarded due to an influenza epidemic killing millions of innocents, like in 1919.

And speaking of epic disasters: Poseidon Adventure or Towering Inferno?

In that case, I'd actually rather Toronto. As a matter of fact, I think I'd prefer any other team in the entire league.

Heatley - no whiny yappers.

Jessica - Biel, Alba or Simpson? That qualifies as this, that or the other.
