Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

It looks like despite winning two games in the playoff series against the Canucks, the Blues decided that Jake Allen will still not be their starting goaltender next season and traded him off to the Canadiens for two draft picks (third and seventh rounds in 2020). -------- It's fair to say that Demk...

Re: 2001

WDSF - BC 19 at Calgary 28 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kO_OLrUvhFc The 2001 WSDF in its entirety. Along with the 1991 WDSF and 2008 WDF all in McMahon Stadium, this game is extremely frustrating to watch as in all three games, the Lions had a lead and had every opportunity to finish off the Sta...

Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

Even though the NHL is based out of Canada as are the two playoff venues, it looks like has followed suit of the protest of the Jacob Blake shooting by postponing all games.

While it will give the ;canucks: more rest, hopefully it won't ruin their strong momentum from game 2. :cr:

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

I am not the guy to research it, but it would be interesting to come up with an all time team based on who had the most number of all star selections at each position. As Lions of course, right? You can get a great list for both CFL and West Division Lions All Stars up to 2018 at: https://d3ham790t...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

as per long-term vs. short-term, i think greatness over the short-term should be recognized more. the name that comes to mind with lions is mervyn fernandez but he's already on team...... I created this thread in 2010 on best short-term BC Lions: http://www.lionbackers.com/bc_lions/viewtopic.php?f=...

Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

In light of both the recent and past discussions about good present and past BC Lions players, and as the Canucks have advanced in the playoffs for the first time in nine years, how about a discussion on any spotlight on a current Canucks player? I'll start off by saying I've developed a lot of resp...

Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

Congratulations and way to go ;canucks: !!! :towel: :yahoo: :beer: Well done by taking a quick 4-0 and unlike the Flames, never looked back. They didn't intimidated and kept their composure after the Blues tied the series by fighting back in game 5 from a deficit and playing superbly in game 6 to fi...

Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

I praise and commend the Dallas Stars for composing themselves after being in a 0-3 deficit with the Calgary Flames to score 7 unanswered goals to take a 7-3 win and the series.

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

Less Browne would be one of my corners. My other fav, if not best, is Andre Francis. For me, Less Browne better remembered as a Tiger-Cat and a Blue Bomber. In the 1985 GC, in Lions favour he didn't cover Ned Armour well and as a result, Dewalt was able to throw two long TD passes to Armour. And An...

Re: Greatest Hockey Game Ever

And this is a point that I've stated numerous times before in that overall, a local city championship brings a lot more excitement and celebrations compared to a national team win in an international tournament. The excitement and celebrations in Vancouver when: 1. Team Canada (men and women) won th...

Re: Greatest Hockey Game Ever

One memory that stands out goes back to the Canada Cup series of 1987ish and the final game played at Copps Colosseum in Hamilton. Trailing 6 - 5 with only a couple of minutes left to play, at a time when the best players are on the ice, Canada executed a text book breakout out of their own zone th...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

And whenever there's such a list, it looks like seniority of the team is always a bigger factor than simply good quality and individual accolades and awards while on the team. . So other words, an above average Lion with many years with the team will be selected over a great but very short-term Lio...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

Saw it on another forum. Big omission in Bobby Ackles. Guessing most will agree. TSN didn’t have a category for team president or other off-field personnel. The selectors went off the board to name Kato as the only non-player or coach on the lists of the nine teams. It’s easy to argue that Bob Ackl...
