  1. He scored some screamers for Edmonton, well it only seems like a year or two ago. And Gyaki is coaching at Mount Royal (canada west coach of the year)...his comeback will be coaching in CPL.
  2. No, look closer, ZZ is right there.
  3. Its your favorite...no wrong answers. I am surprised though that more of the Valentine, Vrablic, Catliffe era guys arent getting much love. Considering how many old fogies are on here.
  4. Friend may score at will, but Herschfield would give it all back and then some,
  5. Keep it up there TIOR, Robert or whatever you call yourself, what are you working on your 4th name in the last 6 months?? We should have a pool on how many posts it will be before he gets banned and respawns again. You really dont remember the 70's? Canada wasnt doing anything internationally and we were known for goon style hockey when the russians and europeans were revamping the game with skill and speed. Gretzky came along (along with Lemeuix et al) put us on top internationally and showed the rest of the world what we could do. And he definitely inspired a generation of CDN kids to pick up sticks.
  6. "Gretzky was the Great One, but he never inspired a generation of youths to pick up a hockey stick, because Canada had already produced a whole slew of hockey legends long before Wayne was born." I remember a era of rock em sock em, bruiser hockey from the 70's that turned a lot of kids off the game. Much like the dangers of concusions turn young football players away today. Gretzky showed my generation that there was still another side to the game and you didnt have to be a brawler.
  7. ----------Forrest----------- Stalteri-Devos-Mckenna-Davies Simpson-Hutch-Radz-Deguz Dero-Bunbury David, Arfield, Samuel, Bobby L, Onstad, Pesch, and of course...Jaimie Peters
  8. If the virus was floating around BC (or anywhere else in canada) in Nov and spreading through the population there should have been a spike of odd pneumonia/resperatory cases following it. Maybe there was, I'm not an expert, although these days you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a so called "expert" on infectious diseases. Funny how a lot of those same guys are the ones who tell me how to mow my lawn and when to take down my x-mas lights
  9. Cripes that was depressing. Does anyone have a link to either Mckenna's half time interview or Hart post game. I thought i remember Hart resigning the next day.
  10. That is a damn good idea. Another networks are feeding us "classic" MLS, NCAA B-ball etc. Why not a few CPL games?? V-cup, Forge in champions league etc.
  11. I feel for Fraser, but look at a guy like Jakovic. Having a nice resurgence, getting playing time....might not be around next year. Same with Hutchinson. ****** deal all around for everyone, but at least the young guys will still have more time to play.
  12. Johnson?? Donavon Bailey won the worlds before and after winning a gold medal in Atlanta.. How about Clara Hughes, multiple medal winner in summer and winter games?
  13. If ifs and buts were candy and nuts, Robert would have a wonderful x-mas.
  14. Oh cheese must be talking about another local player that just had someone signed to replace him. My mistake.
  15. So its good news we dump Farago? A guy who actually played last year so we could pick up the back up to Ingham who only saw one game last year?? And Silva was buried in the Swedish lower divisions, 3rd or 4th tier?? I dont think this is a move to celebrate. At best we've switched a local guy who was going to see very little action to a cast off from Y9..both the same age as well.
  16. I meant the sanctimonious peanut gallery dissecting every games attendance and its socio-economic implications. Parrot droppings would like to have had a 4000 seat pop up so we could turn an average of 1300 fans away for every game all season. The season hasnt even started yet and the attendance baloney has started. I wish Y9 all the best as you got the brunt of the **** on that front last year.
  17. I think the manager should be closing these deals. Dont pass the buck.
  18. Pasher and Montgomery make the USL-C team of the week, Haworth makes the bench. Nice start for our CDN's in USL-C.
  19. Someone should forward this to Cavallini. This is the way to get the home crowd rooting for you.
  20. ^^^^ Cripes....this is going to be hard to take all summer.
  21. My wife has already nixed ideas of family outings at IG field this spring. I guess I'll be going alone and she is going to spray me down with purell before i can come back in the house.
  22. I love when i come to the board looking for the U-23 roster and I end up doing a deep dive in WIKIPEDIA reading up on social contructs, post moderism, parametric determinism and moral relativism. Ah the things you miss out on..... Ricci is in training camp with Valor...was he any good last year with y9?
