settle this on the ice? how do you settle a disagreement about what canuck fans said about a certain player by what happens on the ice??

you still refuse to believe reality...

Well, I guess someone has to do it, and I'm bored.

McIver waived - Oct 4
You get some lukewarm positive reaction to Mike Brown after a strong training camp. Canuck fans discuss that Brown might get waived and some are indifferent, others hope he doesn't get claimed. But that changed in only 2 weeks.

Pettinger to Tampa - Oct 21

EDIT: Damn NFITO we need to coordinate better

There's a little bit of homer in everyone....

Couldn't Hodgson make a case for being one of the top prospects in the world?

Luongo has been called one of the, if not the best goalie in the world.

When Vancouver was 3rd in the conference, you could make an argument saying that Vancouver could be a contender with Sundin in the lineup.

I think this thread should be renamed:

Randall vs Canuck Fans with the completely irrelevant trade ithat occurred in brackets as a subtitle.

Randall's pretty much an idiot. Stick with ignoring him. Works for me. It's like he doesn't exist, and it's wonderful.

I like it from a Canucks POV, Brown is horrible, at least McIver provides some depth on defense.

How long before Burke has Nathan in TO with him. He drafted the guy, and then picked him up on waivers. Rumors around PEI lately from his close friends are that he heard he was going to be moved to Toronto sometime soon anyhow.
