:lol:
How can you not? It was a pivotal moment in CC history when Doyle become a hater of the current GM (Benning) after being a lover of the previous GM (the modern mind of MIke Gillis)
In 2012?

Your math is as good as your English.... both suck but they blow your history and logic skills right the fuck out of the water.
You knew the end was coming, the Urine Crew was winning at that point, the writing was on the wall. The Chants were a building quiet murmur around that time

If Nonis doesn’t draft Corey Schneider, no Bo Horvat. Gillis should be thankful

The Chef in 2012 had twice as much hair and twice as many teeth as he does now.

I was told by the waitress at the Arms Pub that on every Saturday Doyle orders two cheeseburgers, double patties extra bacon and extra mayo with an extra serving of French Fry Poutine with a sidecar of cheese curds to add later

Nonis also blazed the trail of trading high picks at the deadlines for aging veterans who walk as free agents

And what GM has never done that? :lol:

Hell Ole Gillis traded a 2nd and a 3rd round pick for stone hands Bernier then trades Bernier a few months later along with former 1st round pick Grabner and a 1st round pick for Buyout Ballard, Doyle’s Boi.

Gillis on justifying the trade “we did not like what was available when our time to pick came up”. Kuznetsov, Charlie Coyle and Brock Nelson were all available. As Doyle laments, the GM is always responsible for the 1st round pick

2nd round pick (Bernier)
3rd round pick (Bernier)

Fixed that last little bit for you

:drink:
Hey Vic, where ya been... just 2 posts in the last 6 months bro?
Lol, got caught in that dumpster fire that Canucks Twitter is.

Thought I'd drop by to see what the talk here was like.
Hmmm, the last six months....

Well sometimes-poster Meds returned and has been taking daily throat-pumpings from Micky.

Trust me, it's savage, ole Mick has literally fucked his brains out! :wow:

So much so that Meds decided it would be a good idea to try to reason with the lunatic UKCanuck in Creeper's forum.

And oh yeah, Meds is Chinese now apparently, so yeah, he's allowed to call the pandemic "the China Flu" just so ya know. :wink:
A quick summary.....Real original Doc.....


Next time try not to be late to the party. :P


I love this place. :lol: :lol: :lol:
