No, but not everyone here is willing to engage in quite your level of pants-shitting before the season has even begun. We may be the same, we may be improved, we may be a disaster in waiting. Who the heck knows? You don't. I don't.

I get that this is a hockey chat board and a place to exchange opinions. I just don't get how married folks here get to their own personal prediction of the future. You don't own a crystal ball.

Again, Kesler was putting up PPG numbers on the SECOND line and winning fucking Selkes at the same time a couple seasons ago.

Standards are dropping faster than a hooker's panties around here.


"Real" hookers wear crotchless, or go commando, so your point is totally moot.




And you just outed yourself as only getting the cheap hookers that take hash as payment.

Mondi's babble.....

But, I'm glad you're relying on a team that got fucking punted from the first round in 4 games, and has one 1 of its last 12 playoff games. And one may argue, or agree, that the team now is worse on paper than those two teams.

While I know it is more fun to talk about the posters who have already S*@t the bed, and are busy rolling in it, just thought I;'d mention that Schroeder and Weise have re-upped for this season. We still have $4.3million in cap room left, and really, only Tanev to sign. GMMG hasn't done all that bad.

What's he done exactly?

Qualify a few RFAs ( a monkey could do that, they're all players with no leverage), sign a small fourth liner and a tiny #7/8 defenseman, and trade our MVP for a barely top ten pick.

He's done absolutey nothing to address the issues that have gotten us completey destroyed in the playoffs, he's angered our starting goaltender, and he's kept a core that has looked soft and entitled completely intact. No trades to aquire a third-line center (Schroeder lol) or a top-six forward and no size or toughness added to the roster.

He's hired a coach known for alienating players and playing a defensive system, despite the fact that our lack of an offensive forecheck was clearly a huge problem last season. The summer isn't over but it certainly doesn't sound like he plans on making any major moves.

Oh yeah and then there's the part where he completely bungled the Schneider/Luongo situation.

The best thing he's done is use the #9 pick on Horvat and make a couple other nice-looking picks, but his scouting staff are the ones who most likely made those calls.

For the record I was a big Gillis fan until early 2012 and think he made some great moves. But since then it's been a series of bad decisions and questionable trades. The worst trades he's made are IMO the ones that never happened... this core needs a shake-up and has proven itself not worth taking another run with, and yet it sounds like that's exactly what he plans to do (unless he's full of shit and I hope he is).

New coaches don't make soft players suddenly play like they're hard... especially players in their thirties. You guys are dreaming if you think Torts alone is going to magically transform us into an adept and rugged playoff-style team.

If he can lock up the twins for a few years at 5 mill a season, that would be a nice move... but really he hasn't done anything an objective fan should be in any way excited about.

Then again it's pretty obvious that tomatoface could shit in a bowl and some of you twits would scarf down a big spoonful and call it chocolate sherbet. :lol:

Where are these cheap hash-smoking hookers located exactly?*

Just stahp, Meds. Find a weight class that suits you and try a few swings out there. Tell you what, I'll get Skyo ready and you guys can go a few rounds.** Just make sure you wear your headgear... it's VERY important you wear your headgear at all times.

I don't believe Tortorella is magically transforming us into an adept and rugged playoff-style team ... what I do think is Torts will so is get more out of players that AV couldn't. I'm looking at Booth, Kassian, Edler and Garrison right now. Will other players that flourished or possibly overachieved under AV (Hansen, Bieksa, Burrows, etc) suffer because of the coaching change?

I still can't say I'm not excited about the Torts hiring. If you look at it ... it was a bold move. AV and Bones were just as much a part of the core of this team as a lot of the players. Huge change IMO.

What does it say about the players that they needed the coach to be fired and a tougher one hired to play better?

MG had a chance to make a real bold move but he didn't and this season will be no different that the past 2.

When the typo police come out there is only one inference to be drawn, you have nothing left to say that is relevant to the discussion.

Normally, I will avoid ad hominem attacks on these boards but you sir are an idiot. Disagreeing with me is one thing, but don't bother with spelling mistake nonsense.

Now please sir, go back to defending a team with one playoff win in two seasons, and one playoff win in their last 12 starts. Please defend a team whose GM traded away their MVP for a draft pick. Defend at team whose number one net-minder hasn't spoken publicly about the trade of their former number that occurred one month ago. Please defend a team that is touting David Booth as a legitimate second line player on a "contender". Defend a team whose GM has made precisely one good play personnel move since 2011 (Garrison), and a number of terrible ones along with a few where the jury is still out. Defend a team that is seriously looking at having J. Schroeder as its 3L centre this NHL season. Defend a team where their has been a goaltending saga since at least spring 2012, which shows zero signs of abating. And the list goes on...I won't even get into the rumoured drama around two of the team's more immature players.

Good ship Canuck has gone from the best team in the league in 2011 to a mediocre team in 2013 and trending down.

But, yes. Everything is fine and people who are predicting an off season for the Canucks are stupid because they don't know for sure. Obviously we don't know for sure. Its a fansite, people bullshit around ideas that's the point.
