Re: Luongo and Schneider Revisited (or is it continued?)

It makes you hope that the scouting department does their homework, and recommends a goalie who isn't a headcase Goalies that aren't headcases? What? They make them that way? ;) "Marco Belchior: Two rules, man: Stay away from my fuckin' percocets and do you have any fucking percocets, man? " One of...

Re: Luongo and Schneider Revisited (or is it continued?)

Between Gallagher and MacIntyre... man... just shut up already. Vancouver has some of the worst media hacks in all of sports. You know Luongo is watching for stuff like this Would you be happy about returning to a market like this when the "top" beat writers in the town are writing shit like this? I...

Re: Time For A Change-Get Rid Of Luongo

I'm really shocked and disappointed to hear so many fans of the Canucks offering to drive Luongo to the airport. But, as has been pointed out already, while he was far from the best player, he also wasn't the reason the team lost to Chicago. Personally, I think what's hurt him since he got here was ...

Re: WTF ?

Just to add another observation - Atlanta would be one of the last problem franchises I'd move or contract. After having lived there, there is fantastic grass roots support for hockey and the young fans are really starting to turn out. The problem there stems more from the fact they don't win (been ...

Re: Luongo: Deadline on Extension (Sept. 13)

If you watch the the MG interview on Canucks.com, someone asks about Luongo and the extension... you need to see him smirk. I'd think they're close if not done already.

Re: LaBarbera for a 7th

I'm not that worried. They probably didn't want Schneider cooling his heels on the bench so they got a backup with NHL experience. This might allow Gillis to package LaBarbera in with someone else closer to the deadline or once Luongo comes back. A 7th round pick isn't that bad of a price. It also a...

Re: Wellwood placed on waivers

Not a surprise. He couldn't crack the roster. I'm a little disappointed - he's got some talent. He just doesn't have the work ethic.

Sounds kind of like Fedor.

Re: Roberto Luongo Captain of Canucks NO KIDDING!!

Anyone have a link to video of the press conference? Canucks.com has the Gillis/Vigneault video... and an article, but no video from the actual announcement.

Two things: First off, to blame Greyhound is absurd. This could have happened anywhere, it just so happened it was on a bus owned by Greyhound. If it happened on BC Ferries, would you stop riding the ferry? What about on PCL? Or TransLink? Secondly, and you mentioned this in your post, dude was carr...

So because it's slow season it's okay to just write whatever they feel like and rip the team to shreds? Interesting... I believe I pointed out I'd rather they try go to after the positives and have constructive criticism as opposed to straight out rumor mongering and shitty "journalism". There used ...

Don't get me wrong, I think everyone on this board knows my personal feelings on Vancouver media, but the question I have is this: Who really is to blame? The media for being (mostly) uneducated, loud mouthed, rumor mongering, semi-slanderous, panic generating, lazy writers/reporters .... or the (m...

The only reason I really go to the Province and Sun is to try and get a nugget or two about the Canucks. The problem is I live in a non-hockey market with a shitty team (Atlanta) and good luck on finding any hockey releated news here. I also get most of my Canucks news from here (and sadly CDC). Ho...

Vancouver Sports Media - A Rant

I'm tired. I'm tired of Tony Gallagher. I'm tired of Ed Willis. I'm tired of Ian MacIntyre. Vancouver sports writers suck. Maybe it's just me, but back when I lived in BC, the only real asshole in the news media there was Neil MacRae and that other guy on the radio that my mom hated because he alway...
