Some are suggesting that that could happen after the new CBA. *crosses fingers and hides in corner*

Yes, I totally agree. That goes hand in hand with what I was saying above. The talent pool now is so watered down, because of the large number of teams, that they have to resort to boring, clutch and grab, trap hockey to win. There simply isn't enough skill to go around. It's really bad when you see guys like Scott Parker being drafted in the first round. He played for the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL, and was a total goon who could hardly skate. Yet the talent pool is so depleted (and the draft mentality so skewd - "bigger is better"), that guys like him make it in year after year. What a disgrace.
While I don't think Scott Parker was first round material, he was able to skate and had quite a shot. He really did want to become a better player, but Hartley refused to give him any ice time.

Whether or not he would have improved, I guess is open to conjecture. I always liked him, though. At least he always tried, unlike his replacement, Peter Worrell.

Oh, I agree he wasn't a bad player for a tough guy trying to make it in the NHL. We all needed him in Kelowna, and enjoyed having him on our team. My point is how can a guy like him get drafted in the 1st freakin' round???!!! By watering down the talent pool, that's how. I'm sure he's a good guy, and I do wish him the best...he just shouldn't be a first rounder in "the best league in the world".

Nicely done, Cuj! We can revise, perhaps even change the direction of the quote if you like. It is a bit wordy (how could that possibly be?! ).

The only gripe I have are the quotation marks. Cuj, it only means something if it sounds like it came from you! Come on, Cuj - take it like a man!

Cujo - are you going to the game tomorrow night? Canucks in Cow Town. Should be a good one. Do you want to make any bets?

Yes. Calgary, 11-5. We'll work out the details of your penance later dear vancougaphile.

I'm not going to the game. I'm going to see Eric Idle instead.

Cujo - now THAT is a signature!! I commend you. Great style. Funny. Has flare.

However, I can't believe you're skipping out tomorrow night on the travelling greatness known as the Canucks. It is not every day greatness comes to town, after all. *shakes head in disbelief*

Oh, you've edited your sig, but the ending isn't showing up for me anymore. What does it say?! Could you type it out for me and post it?

Dear observers, I have finally come to the realization that the Vancouver Canucks, from the gem of the pacific coast, are the true elite of the NHL; led by the greatest friggin' power forward ever, Todd Bertuzzi, and that Swedish Mansation Markus Naslund (the best player in the world nonetheless). I beseech all for forgiveness in my most heinous of trespasses... atrocious to the degree that this mere statement is monopolizing my signature property. Verbose? Indeed. Cheers Mr. Griffiths.

I'm here every day actually. So you are correct. It just never leaves.

Why would I want to view the battle for ugliest jerseys anyway?

Ah ha! Once again deflecting the position which is expressed in the quote away from you, and thereby nagating all responsibility of that position, and thus the bet itself. (Isn't it already obvious enough that it is a joke? Sheesh!)
