Didn't Bon Jovi credit the strippers at #5 on their first album? That's Dude territory.

Besides, Baubles strikes me as a guy who likes to wear make up and high heels.
Slippery When Wet was dedicated to the #5. I think Aerosmith also made their big comeback while recording at the Orange.

KISS Army... so Blob fully admits that he likes to wear make up and high heels.
Lol!!! Just liked the tunes bro. As fucked as the band looked with all the gimmicks they cut some wicked shit for a kid in the mid to late 70s.

Gene, Paul, Ace and Peter were more my era. Along with Sabbath, AC/DC and Aerosmith.
KISS was never my thing. Loved ACDC though.

I'll have to admit, in the 80s I went to a Duran Duran concert. Hey, when you're a horny teenager, you go where the girls are.
Metal has grown darker. This band is from my neck of the woods (Umeå). Not quite as melodic as KISS, but they seem to be doing OK:

Yes, regarding Slippery When Wet. Bon Jovi and my old man became close friends, him and his band lived there practically, he’s a wop himself Bongiovi. He invited me snd my ex wife to the studio to watch them record but my ex hated Bon Jovi and I wasn’t a fan either. Never heard stories about Aerosmith but Motley Crew and my old man became very good friends, they had his phone number, they’d call him for booze when off sales was closed. Pops would deliver the booze himself to the studio they were recording in. Thing is pops was a Frank Sinatra man, wouldn’t know metal if it slapped him in the face. But he was buds with Crew and Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi wound always tell him he wants to buy the 5 and move the whole building back home to his neighbourhood in New Jersey

Stecher got man-handled vs the big Blues team, I'd still like to try to upgrade that 3rd pairing with Benn, someone who Green and Baumer can trust to play like 18min a game, play's tough and physical but can help chip in scoring wise a bit, a reliable dman, experienced.

David Savard would be nice.
David Savard would be nice right about now.

Travis Green still loves to play Alex Edler and Chris Tanev till they are injured, he just doesn't give a flying fuck about it.


Tanev and Edler leading the Canucks in blocked shots
44
41
I believe that duo is 2nd (edler) and 4th (tanev) in the entire league in blocked shots.
Next up is Benn with 18 blocked shots.

And blocking shots in this day in age is risky business.

David Savard is a good player and a great target. We got fuck all to give up to get him.

Laughs are reeling...changes are likely coming and they have some interesting pieces that may be in play.

Both Barrie and Muzzin are UFA this summer and either would look fantastic in the stinky whale...just not at 8+ mill a year.

There are plenty of scapegoats up front that could be acquired...7 million Williom is NOT one that should be considered but Jonsson or Kapanen would be worth a look.

Come on Skyo...whatcha got

:lol:

A silver lining to all this suck is that if Barrie continues to look this bad he wont be commanding anywhere near the rumoured 8 million price tag...which may mean he could actually fit our salary structure.

I dont think hes playing his heart out for a prick like Babcock...hes saving himself for next year in van

I like Barrie but not sure having both him and Hughes makes sense. You can only be so small of a team on the whole. It’s still a heavy game, see the last two cup winners. Plus he’s gonna rake in a big contract in which we can’t afford. We’d hs evto move all of Stecher, Sutter, Markstrom and Eriksson I would think. Replaced with entry levels.

Not sure he will be much cheaper but yeah he’d be a better fit
