cant believe av is double shifting archibald while putting gretzky into a checking centre role

as you noted in the first game commentary his head is probably still spinning after the offseason departure of aaron rome

Trade denied. Fake GM Howson reportedly cried for a bit than called his mother to tell him he is a good GM.

Editing game highlights together tonight, it was an exciting game. Probably won't be up till late late late so I would expect to see them early morning unless you're a total night owl.

I hope you're gonna do GM mode for the regular season so we can see where we are in the fake-standings and discuss the fake-injuries

The thing is, I don't. I just give up sleep. I do this in the middle of the night and I have a regular 9-5 job.

So the correct thing to say would be "someone is spending too much time on this".

People on HF who know of me, know I've posted here a long time, and then somehow fumbled my way into blogging for the Province. As such I am doing anything and everything I can to see if it's possible to make a career out of writing humorous hockey stuff. Odds are it isn't possible, but I want to at least try, right? It would be a dream come true to make it as a writer/sports guy , writing about the Canucks.

Seeing the stuff I write get into the actual paper? That's still surreal for me. And it's not just because I have talent. Tons of people I've talked to on HF can write amazing in depth stuff about the Canucks and hockey just as well or better than me. I have this chance because a) I was in the right place at the right time and b) I went for it, and I went for it hard.

That is why I am throwing myself into this so hard. Because the lockout sucks, and there is nothing to write about, so I have to see if I can still find a way to entertain people. I want to try and fill a niche and make people think "That Kid_Roll/Stanchion/Wyatt (however you know me), I wonder what he thinks about all of this..."

I know you probably meant your comment as a throwaway comment, and me writing a novel of a response certainly doesn't do me any favors of dispelling the myth that I have too much time on my hands, but cheesiness aside, I learned my craft on HF Boards, I honed my style down here. I made gifs and photoshops for you guys long before twitter. I did fake GM conversations on here many moons ago, learning how to be funny with sports.

I know it's super easy to be cynical on the internet, but HF is where I "grew up" so I've always wanted to kind of let everyone on here, anyone who's ever talked to me, thank you, thank you for talking to me, and giving me positive reactions or negative reactions. I wouldn't be in the Province without you guys. You guys, again, easy to be cynical, but you were like a group of online friends I could always talk hockey with, even when life was really down for me. It was a therapeutic place to come here, even if it was just to yell at certain posters for being idiots, or to rail on Dan Cloutier. Anyways, in closing, hockey rules, as do you guys.


Ahem. And that is the last time I will ever open up like that. Back to snarky Kid_Roll.

Loving the fake first line.

Fake Kassian really looks like he took some big steps this fake offseason. Good news for fake Canucks fans!

Stefan Schneider deserves his shot on the 2nd line. Do it, KR.

Stefan played just under 4 minutes on the 4th, he should probably get a look on the 2nd. Schroeder, aside from that one nice takeaway, had a poor game.

Corrado once again got 30 minutes btw. Fake AV LOVES this guy.

Watching this has really made me realize how badly this game actually represents hockey.

Good on you man, I am surprisingly entertained by these, looking forward to the next one. I already see improvement in the three games with your ability to use your sense of humor smoothly...the longer this lockout goes on the more you may be up for that job. Luongo is obviously watching lol!

Yeah this third one for sure was WAY better and more natural than the first two. I have learned that I need to give the highlights more "pre footage" so I can talk leading up to the play, instead of trying to rush through with my schtick really quickly on a shorter clip before the highlight occurs. For some reason this has allowed me to ease back and talk more naturally, and get rid of that "depressing" tone Parabola loves so much.

If anything, it's been fun to push myself out of my comfort zone. I always like to stay in the shadows (hence the love of writing hahaha) but it's been an interesting challenge to put myself out there like this.

Thanks for all the feedback guys!

As the lockout drags on - perhaps a sticky?
