Re: Vancouver vs. Chicago: comparing the players and future

Interesting comments from Carcillo... http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=373449 If the media wanted someone to show what a hockey goof looks like, Carcillo gave it to them. His attempt at a sound bite came in a poor second to Kovalev's (correct names, more controversy). Carcillo comes off about as bright ...

Re: Considering moving to Calgary(from Australia)

For a couple years work required that I spent a third of my time there. Comparing to Vancouver..... The good. The local recreation facilities (rinks, community and private health clubs) are good. Easy access to trails to ride and run on. Lots of migrants = plenty of people that are open to meeting n...

Re: Shea Weber 1yr 7.5m from arbitration

Poile didn't seem too happy about the way the Weber contract played out. Perhaps a result of the Owner's limitations on budget and long term commitments. Nashville only has two contract commitments beyond 2012/13 (Erat & Legwand). Meanwhile Weber wants to be on a contender , without saying too much ...

Re: Canucks have signed Owen Nolan and Todd Fedoruk to PTO

This may be considered heresy, but in preparation for the play offs, I think we should try Daniel & Henrik on separate lines. Not all the time, but enough to have an alternate strategy ready for the playoffs. Devising last minute playoff strategies is not AV's strong point. Reason being that in the ...

Re: Canucks have signed Owen Nolan and Todd Fedoruk to PTO

Nolan can provide a type of gritty leadership that we lack. There were times when our team looked bewildered when trying to deal with Boston and Chicago's dirty playoff tactics. Nolan's savvy would have helped. Nolan knows how to respond to attempts to intimidate his team mates. How to deter people ...

Re: Shea Weber 1yr 7.5m from arbitration

Weber feeds calming words to the local paper. He loves his team mates, Nashville, and the fans. It could be an old article from the Province about one of our guys.

He doesn't say how much he wants to play on a contender.
