Sounds like buddy-pumping from an ex-NHLer. I don't know how much credence I'd give it, but I guess this Tippett ping-pong match has gotta end sometime.



Yes well that would certainly be the glass is half full theory and if it were Aaron Ward or Mike Johnson I might agree.

But I think Ferraro makes the effort to do an honest, decent job (as far as ex-players go) in his analysis and would be doing himself and his employers a disservice (hello Darin Dreger) if this is indeed the case.

lol

Why am I even talking about this?

They can hire Tortorella for all I fukin care.

Carry on.

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 have to agree. Regardless of who is more talented ( I really don't know), I just don't like Torts, and would hate to have to listen to him all week in interviews

I wouldnt be shocked to see perhaps a Stevens as coach with a veteran like Martin as his associate. Tippett doesnt excite me at all. I dont see him as a guy who can put us over the top. More a guy who gets his team to overachieve.

That was at Central, many, MANY years ago!

It caused a big debate, most of us concluding folks shouldn't peruse the internet with grandsons on laps.

Too funny Rikster, I totally remember that!

rikster wrote: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?...


Most of us (including Chris) liked to think of Central as a drinking establishment.

Although some considered it more of a nightclub... and some considered it more of a seedy bar. :drink:

Either way, not a place for kids!

(assuming the grandson of the poster in question was a kid) :look:

Anyway, I respect your civilized ways Rikster, even if I am... less-civilized. :wink:

rikster wrote: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....


Makes sense, although I could see it driving someone like Spidey completely insane after awhile.

I mean, in person, you don't say "take care" to someone like 10 times a day right?

I dunno, I hate to speak for the bully Spidey, but perhaps he likes more flow to a message board?

Perhaps to a hyper dude like Spidey "take care" translates into "take some Ritalin!"

(something I'm sure he gets all the time in real life).

So yeah... if Spidey's grandson is reading in this forum and asks Spidey what "take care" means

.... Spidey may well reply "That sunnuvabitch just told me to FUCK OFF!!!"

Not trying to offend you or Spidey, just trying to be the peacemaker here...

:lol:

That's RICDICULOUSLY funny!

PLEASE keep saying "take care" to Spidey!!!

.... and there ain't nothing wrong with that! :cheers:

Although I must say, I'll never understand how you could stand posting at McKeens all those years.

Too many Leafers, and too many rules.

But to each their own good buddy.

There are quite a few straight-laced chaps at this site and they seem to abide quite well.

Personally I enjoy the wide range of personality types.

Keep on keeping on good buddy! :thumbs:

How dare you attack sThinker on here when he is no longer around to defend him self, he was awesome, a good friend and smarter than your toilet...

...if you think me a bully then screw you pal. I freely admit I don't take this coperate hockey bullshit too seriously. I'm a player (and sometimes coach) and post from the heart, not from some posers perspective.

You've been using that Take Care for how many years? Give it a fuck'n rest man.

I'm an angry fat old man that has good days and bad days and I'm not going to fake being nice in a couple of words.

This bully shit is making us a society of pussies (grow a fucking pair and deal with it). Now they have day cares with video so mommy can call and stop little Johnny from get kneed in the balls from little Suzy before it happens.

What the hell do you think hockey is? It's hit or be hit. Cough up the puck or feel pain. I guess you advocate the agitators and power forwards get taken away with fighting...

From now on I am changing my sig in your honour, as a public service to all of CC to fight wimpiness everywhere...

You just keep on keepin' on rikster, and PM me if you have any concerns about Spidey and what he's capable of...

I'd have no problem taking care of the trash for you with regards to that fellow. :scowl:

As far as Tippett goes, when a coach has consistently showed that he's a proponent of not just a trapping system but the most sleep-inducing disgracefully boring trapping system ever seen, it's probably a stretch to assume that because he's a smart guy he's going to suddenly flip the script in Vancouver and play an up-tempo style. If he had any proclivity to play a forecheck system we'd have seen it at SOME point in Phoenix. That team played the same way every night, regardless of the opponent or the score.

Jacques Lemaire thinks Tippett's brand of hockey is too dull. :lol:

I hate summer, when we fans all speculate on what will happen and then cry when something does. We want instant answers and now, then start the season, finish the season have the playoffs and hoist the cup so we can start this cycle again next summer.

The only thing I like about summer is, BBQ, beer, BBQ, voodka on ice, swimsuits, sun, women in swimsuits, lots of sun, women in small swimsuits o and thinking about hockey while I BBQ, drink beer/voodka and look at women in swimsuits :mrgreen:

Well, I don't know who will be the best coach, a new one will hopefully bring more accountability into the room. The MG needs to make some changes to the core or it will be another long winter. A winter without sun and women in swimsuits (sorry HW).

I for one, really enoy what Rickster has to say: it's on topic, relevant, thought out, and respectful; even the 'take care' piece I view as refreshing.

I rarely enjoy reading Arachnid's posts. In fact, there's been many a time when I've come to the board and saw that the most recetn posts were made by Arachnid which prompted me to leave the site in order to be spared the negative, usually off-topic drivel. It doesn't take lot for person to spout off negatively and be crudely scarcastic to others...it's said to be the lowest form of wit, and truthfully it is NOT impressive. We're all inclined to have a rant or two being hard-core Canuck fans and all, but some of the 'schtick' gets tiring.

As for coaching, I keep wondering what's going to unfold. As many have offered, this indeed is a 'make it or break it' time for Gillis. Not so keen about Torts.... I kind of thought that McTavish undermined our possibility with what's his name from the Marlies (reminded me of how the Oilers nabbed that defenseman last year from under our noses as well (Schultz?). Guess we'll know by the end of the month what's going to wut.

So hey, like it or 'lump' it, that is just my opinion, and to all of you fellow posters I say "G'day to ya all and ..... (here it comes) take care, eh.
