Vancouver Off-Topic / Current EventsThe off-topic forum for Vancouver, funnies, non-auto centered discussions, WORK SAFE. While the rules are more relaxed here, there are still rules. Please refer to sticky thread in this forum.
For him to say if it was any other person or wouldn't have happened is BS. For all he knows it could have been worse. Next time I'm sure he will take the hit instead of trying to swing off. Cooke stuck his leg out in my opinion to keep the hit somewhat in line to land it. Posted via RS Mobile
He mentions it could have been prevented...ya with kevlar socks like Bieksa wears now.

Giants are just absolutely garbage this year. News1130sports updates the Giants game scores all the time, all I ever see is them getting blown out.
if they get the 1st overall this year they will be stacked in the future. guy projected to go first overall had 140+pts in 30games in alberta, similar projetions to ty rattie. to top that they have 2 15yr olds that look to have some talent, one they stole from a minny prep school and another from cloverdale
thats how the WHL works. teams have max 5 good years at the top then slump for a few before rebuilding. the rockets did it, the giants have done it now, kamloops blazers were the team to beat in the 90s, etc. it goes in cycles since teams only stay together for a couple of years.
Fact of life with the level of player turnover the junior leagues see.
Players aged 15–20 are eligible to play in the WHL, though 15-year-olds are permitted to play only five games unless their midget team's season has ended. Also, each team is allowed to have only three 20-year-olds on their rosters, unless there is an expansion team, in which case five 20-year-olds are eligible to play.
So for most guys, a WHL career is only 4 years - not a lot of time to build chemistry with teammates, not a lot of time to make trades for good players, especially as many of the really skilled guys won't really start to shine until they only have a couple years left.

Yes, because surely that will help concussion issues. With all the attention concussions got last season and what's happening in the NFL I'm surprised the league hasn't cracked down more on fighting this year.
Anyway gars, I know what you're saying - but I think in 5 years time there will be far less fighting aloud in the NHL.
