There's another guy with a similar story who was on 1040 last month, almost the same story. Dad beat the shit out of him constantly, made him run behind the car, etc can't remember the guy's name, played a few hundred games in the NHL

I think that second of standing up out him in the wrong position when Boyle came in and made his move.
I am curious to hear his explanation on why he stood straight up for that full second.

It's a fact that he's a scumbag boss to his own workers.
-definitely not in WorkSafe's good books:

Aquilini family's farming company tops list of firms fined by WorkSafe BC

Members of the Aquilini family — who own the Vancouver Canucks — were fined the biggest amount in B.C. last year for worker-safety violations.

WorkSafeBC vice-president Al Johnson said on Monday that a farm vehicle used to transport workers on an Aquilini enterprise was not maintained in a "safe operating condition."

The Aquilini's were fined $125,277, topping a list of 260 penalties levied by the worker-safety agency last year.

Johnson said the fine was large because it was "the same type of violation as happened a year before."

"This was one of those things where they should have known better," he said.

The 570-hectare agricultural property, called the Golden Eagle blueberry farm, is located in the 16300 block of Aquilini Ave. in Pitt Meadows.

It is owned by Francesco Aquilini, Roberto Aquilini and Elisa Aquilini.

Johnson said the intent of the fine was to get the employer's attention.

"We use it as a tool to motivate employers' compliance. We're hoping this won't happen again," he said.

There were two incidents involving transportation safety. Johnson said the blueberry farm responded to the first incident in May, 2011 by promising to correct conditions.

He said that clearly didn't happen because they occurred a second time in July, 2011.

"This put the safety of the firm's workers and others at risk," said Johnson.

The $125,277 fine, which was the firm's second, came down in February, 2012 after working its way through the administrative system.

Golden Eagle rep John Negrin said that safety violations had been addressed and proper procedures were in place in a September, 2012 interview. He was not available on Monday.

The Aquilini's are one of B.C.'s wealthiest families.

Their net worth was estimated at $5 billion in a 2007 report.

Holdings include the Canucks, Rogers Arena and surrounding land which were valued at $500 million.

They also own and manage hotels; condo projects have been estimated at $1 billion.

Additional properties include office towers, golf courses and a pizza franchise.

The second and third highest penalties in WorkSafe's 2012 list, meanwhile, were imposed against Skylite Building Maintenance Ltd. for chronically exposing workers to asbestos, said Johnson. Each penalty was for $105,000.

it tells me that Babcock is steady on his pairings. He had a shitty preseason and I was on of the guys dumping on him but at the time, i didn't know we could've retained him. I don't think that's a knock on his ability, it's more on Babcock not willing to budge on his current d pairings. The guy hasn't even had a chance to "crack" the shit Laff's line up.

FYI: so far this season
Canucks GA - 81, Laffs GA - 72
Canucks GA/GP - 2.7, Laffs - 2.57
Canucks SA/GP - 30.0, Laffs - 30.6

if you think i'm laughably overvaluing Corrado, you must like seeing Weber and Bartkowski fish pucks out of net. Not saying Corrado isn't gonna do that but having that option would've been nice cus with Hammer out and Sbisa still not close to returning, the prospect of giving more minutes to Bart and Weber is terrifying in that the Laffs shit defence will soon look like an All-Norris pairing but tantalizing in that we could just get Chychrun or Matthews after all.

Nowhere did i polish Corrado's knobs. Just emphasizing the fact that it was a retard move on JB's part.

Pretty sure it was O'Sullivan as well. He was on the midday show recently prior to the article and the CKNW interview.

Looked up Brisebois (he's the guy we essentially traded Lack for)

Last season he had a horrifying -40.
I thinks he's -10 this season so far lol

Still, only at 18 so he's got a long way to go. Scouting report says he's mature and an on-ice leader and is one of the few bright spots on his shitty qmjhl team

I'm kind of torn with what happened to Hamhuis.

The longer he's out = less likely we'll get that 1st round pick for him
The longer he's out = Canucks will lose more due to the lack of depth on the back end.

less likely we'll get that 1st round pick but better chance for us to get top 5 pick

I'm not torn at all, really as long as he recovers thats all that matters. As long as the Sedins stay healthy and the young kids progress thats all that really matters. We at least will get a first rounder out of Vrbata at the trade deadline

Iron Man Jagr scored his 731st goal yesterday to put him a tie for fourth place with Marcel Dionne on the list of all time goal scoring leaders.

-mad respect for what JJ has accomplished in his career. He's 43 years old and still playing in the NHL.

Think about it. Jagr already won two Stanley Cups with Pittsburgh before McBitch was even born.

Jaromir Jagr scores 731st NHL goal, ties Marcel Dionne | NHL.com - News

Florida Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr scored his 731st NHL goal Thursday to tie Marcel Dionne for fourth place on the League's all-time list.

Jagr scored 51 seconds into the first period of a 4-1 win against the Washington Capitals at BB&T Center. He has nine goals this season; he had gone eight games without one.

"I was waiting for a long time," Jagr said. "I had some chances; I just couldn't score. I'm glad it's behind me. Every record looks like there's a big karma around it and it's tough to break it. It's not the first time that I was stuck on a number. It's always like that. The great players, there's great charisma and great karma around it ... it's like a huge wall.”

Jagr scored on the first shot after an opening faceoff that was delayed 17 minutes to allow the required emergency personnel to arrive at the arena.

"He had some chances before that, but tonight it's good to get that goal," Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. 'He's going to score more goals for us over his career, but tonight I'm sure he's pretty excited."

The 43-year-old is 10 goals behind Brett Hull for third place. Wayne Gretzky's 894 goals are most in NHL history, 93 more than Gordie Howe.

Jagr is fourth with 1,823 points, behind Howe (1,850), Mark Messier (1,887) and Gretzky (2,857).

Jagr, who made his NHL debut on Oct. 5, 1990, has played 1,577 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Capitals, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Dallas Stars, Boston Bruins, New Jersey Devils and Panthers.

Dionne scored his 731 goals in 1,348 games with the Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings and Rangers. He last played in the 1988-89 season.

Jagr missed three NHL seasons playing in the Kontinental Hockey League from 2008-11.
