PERIOD

IF YOU TALKED BACK, YOU WERE SHUNNED BY THE REST OF THE TEAM AS BEING SELFISH. THAT WAS IT. THE COACH'S WORD WAS LAW AND YOU HAD TO BE 'MAN' ENOUGH TO TAKE IT.

EVEN A GUY LIKE ME UNDERSTANDS THAT IN 2012, TIMES HAVE CHANGED. AGENTS HAVE A LOT MORE POWER. THE YOUNG GENERATION USES FACEBOOK, TWITTER, YOU NAME IT.

THE GOOD COACHES KNOW WHEN TO PUSH ACCOUNTABILITY, BUT ALSO KNOW WHEN TO PULL BACK.

You're barking a bit big for someone who has never played organized sports.

Yeah but Blob it doesn't mean he's wrong. He on the other hand he is likely to have been around more NHL dressing rooms and NHL coaches and NHL players than many of us. You have to be one sandwich short of a pinic not to be able to read what's happening in front of you.

It's like teachers preparing children for the future they have in the work force ...here are people that go to school, then go to teachers training collage and then back to the classroom spouting about what has to be done to prepare students for the future work prospects...how would they know :D

One thing for sure in every day life this is a new era, some thing like the industrial revolution but bigger. When I was 15 I had to learn the Morse code and semaphore.... :D :D so the chnage is not that long ago

This thread reminds me of the joke we use to pull on people where you make them talk about cows and then the feel stupid talking about cows for so long. 8-)

who the fuck cares about brian burke and the toronto maple Leaves?!

I live in the fucking city and i don't give them any energy, they are that pathetic, and we are, sorry some Drama Prince (Queen?! :look: ) keeps going on and on about him like a bitter bitch that got left at the alter...who the fuck cares? Just because HNIC fucktards talk about it incessantly doesn't mean we have to.
They aren't even in the god damn playoffs...

Can we lock this thread as being off topic of (Real Professional) hockey? :mex:
I love every move Jim Benning makes 8-)

I for one dont give a rats ass about the leaves and their disfunctional way of operating, but when an asshole like Burke tries to get Cherry fired simply because he has the balls to criticize Burke, then ya this thread is relevent

I welcome a thread to discuss Canada's hockey team and all of its dysfunction.

Even though we got Cup angst, us Vancouver Canucks fans have been pretty blessed in terms of organizational leadership.

It's fun to see how one of the most visible hockey teams in the league has been run into the ground and what BB is doing to try to lead it to prominence again.

While I take great pleasure at seeing the Laughs fail (based on the fact that if you're a REAL Canuck fan, then you MUST hate the Laughs), I think it would be pretty cool to have lots of powerful Canadian teams in the hunt and subsequently take hockey madness in Canada to the next level.

We're pretty damn passionate about our hockey as it is, imagine if all Canadian teams were legitimate playoff teams? That would absolutely insane (in a good way) :)

The early christ person was very much like the Taliban: Ready to die for the faith and that includes getting eaten by wild animals in front of drunken crowds which has prepped him well for pro hockey.

WHEN GRABOVSKI'S AGENT HEARD BRIAN BURKE SAY AT A PRESS CONFERENCE "I DON'T LIKE COACHES WHO ARE WARM AND FUZZY, THE GAME SHOULDN'T BE FUN...THE COACHES CAN'T COME DOWN AND SAY YOU HAD A GREAT SHIFT. MOST OF THE FEEDBACK YOU GET FROM A COACH IN THE CONTEST IS NEGATIVE, AND I DON'T WANT IT ANOTHER WAY."

.......GRABOVSKI'S AGENT ASKED FOR ANOTHER 20% OF WHAT THEY WOULD HAVE ACCEPTED ;)
Good point and funny too.

Nice work Captain Capslock! :mrgreen:
