It has been almost 50 years since I've been to Vancouver, but I used to like Trocadero Pizza on the east side (I lived in Burnaby at the time while going to BCIT). Is it still good?

I think Doyle’s favourite pizza is the 4 Cheese with pepperoni and sausage and gets a cup of the blue cheese dip

If Vancouver is moving someone, Hoglander is atop my list.

Pizza, Brick Oven on Dunbar was a favourite. A a good pie at BiBo in Richmond on a recent coastal trip.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

There is absolutely no reason not to have a good sit down and talk to JT Miller about his future with the club and what he might be thinking.
Many, even most players wont have sit down chats. Everything has to go through their agents. Pretty sure Miller would give the club a very honest take.
Yeah I’m pretty sure this was already said by a few people.

This has never been said before, in regards of Miller possibly being approachable without a player agent.

And what makes you think he would sit down without his agent? Or are you just going off on some Gomeristic imagining.

I can guess you reasons, but I'd still like to hear them.

If people are inclined to be patient with Pettersson, I'm even more inclined to be patient with a guy who has a year less NHL time under his belt, was drafted lower, and regardless of mental errors shows a ton of hustle and never pouts.....

I'm not saying don't trade him. In fact the only untradeable asset on the team right now is Demko, imho. Hughes a close second, but again, if the return is mind blowing nobody should be safe.

Like an echo! :mrgreen:

I know it got lost in the great pizza and beer ball debate but I agree.

Versatile 3rd line player with limited upside. If Hoglander is a fixture on your 2nd line, you have problems. This season he is playing far more to expectation coming out of Sweden. I don't dislike him, but I think there is return to be had for him. You have to give to get.

Hoglander is a good young player. But I’m all for moving him for a young D man or centre. Maybe including him in a bigger deal as long as you get some young cheap labour coming back.

The construction of the roster is still a bit of a mess. For instance Vancouver spends the second most in the league on D men. That’s a problem considering this is a pretty scabby back end and nowhere close to being one of the better groups in the league. Back end needs to re-vamped big time.

Yeah and this is the problem with not having replenishment of assets through the draft, we have no one on the back end on ELC anymore and there really isn't anyone coming in the pipeline soon.
