Roberto Macchenzzi was a legend. He swims with the fishes now. Vincent Tannero is the new boss

This team would never be in the shape it's in today oif Chin Gigante was the boss.

Big Frank is no Chin Gigante.

Big Frankie is like Fredo. Maybe there needs to be a new Capo di Aqualini after a family fishing trip?

Green is the opposite of Chin Gigante. How did someone with so little bite in his game jaw so much on the ice?
Ya don't trade JT Miller! You just don't.

If you look at him when he played you can see the makings of a throatie even back then. He never stood a chance

I rarely watch games live, prefer to wait an hour or more and then I can blast through commercials and between period silliness. With the recent changes I was interested to hear what some of the clowns are saying so I briefly tuned in to be reminded what clowns they are.

Holy fuck. Drance really is a neckbeard.

Did he get that suit from his grand father or just find it in a box while moving things around in his Mom's basement while looking for a place to connect his Nintendo?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Yesterday's game was the first I've seen him as well, really reinforces how his opinion carries little to no weight.

Can't believe they give these guys any airtime period.

Same here - just spewing numbers and gibberish. I'll bet he watches less games than Blobby! ;)

He has managed to entrench himself into the Canuck media world and it'll be hard to get rid of him now. Best hope is, he steps over the line and they cut him off.

Canucks radio rights up for bidding as SN650 contract is finished, Team1040 out of the mix, CKNW could get it back, but dollars aren't making sense, could be the Canucks might stream their own games online controlling everything, might have more content as well.
If returning to Sportsnet 650 or going elsewhere on radio isn’t ideal for the Canucks, the team could opt to broadcast the games themselves on a streaming platform. Both the LA Kings and San Jose Sharks broadcast games online without the regular radio presence and have been doing so for years.In hiring Craig MacEwen in a public relations role, the Vancouver Canucks have someone with experience as a radio program director.

The Canucks could also make great use of historical footage. Imagine being able to go into the archives and to hear the first NHL game ever for the Vancouver Canucks, or Jim Robson and Tom Larscheid’s memorable commentary on Pavel Bure’s first NHL game, or John Shorthouse’s iconic “slay the dragon” call.

“This is the next wave of broadcasting and I would be surprised if the Canucks chose to go back to regular radio,” a broadcast insider told Daily Hive. “With streaming, the Canucks (could) control the rights, the content, the costs, and the advertising dollars. Everything they have, want, or need is already in place. It makes so much sense.”

So turning the local radio station on …. I get Tom Dancer and an idiot called “Quads”. Was “Hamstrings” not available? Or “Calves”? Jesus we have the shittiest media on the continent. Fucktards one and all :twisted:
