In defense of Pauser, and I still have him on ignore as well, but he's been surprisingly reasonable since Benning took over.

I have an empty ignore list, but Mogilny to Bure is getting pretty close.

Wait -- Ryan -- does that mean you're back again in some form?

Er no, of course not. I'm like banned and stuff.

That list is pretty good but I'm surprised about Lundface. He was a good poster until he went nuts.

So uhhhh this is why Willie adopted Vey...

http://www.theprovince.com/sports/hocke ... story.html

As Vey has struggled to establish his NHL career, he has been balancing far bigger issues and he's hoping his family will soon get closure.

On May 24, his father Curtis Vey is to go on trial with co-accused Angela Nicholson. The pair have been charged with conspiracy to murder their spouses.

The Canucks learned about the case after trading a second-round draft pick for Vey in 2014.

Meanwhile Bonino scores the series clincher in Pittsburgh. Has 10 points I the playoffs. Remember when Jim traded him for Sutter because Sutter is a guy you win with in the playoffs? Good times.

It is funny how not only does Jim do dumb things, but they actually manage to blow up in his face even worse than I expected.

kinda strange how benning is so clearly lost and yet still commands all these devoted followers who choose to reason away reason and run away from logic. its both amusing and disappointing

Such as Iain McIntyre.

Closet capologists screaming about inflated salaries that the Vancouver Canucks gave defenceman Luca Sbisa and forward Derek Dorsett may find comfort in the National Hockey League’s potential expansion draft after next season. Of course, if their salaries are as bad as most people think, a new Las Vegas franchise won’t want them.

Eat it haters. Sbisa's and Dorsett's contracts are so bad that they won't get picked up.

Yeah, I feel a little bad about all of the dad jokes now.

It's crazy how this only came out now. You would think someone would have connected the dots earlier. How many Veys can there be in Wakaw, Saskatchewan?

That's what I was thinking. Botchford said he found out during the season but didn't want to make it a distraction for him, so waited until offseason, but how did it take 3 years to get on anyone's radar? Apparently local media knew but didn't think the NHL connection was a big deal.

On another note, Cliff Ronning owns a hockey stick company called Base and they haven't paid their employees in 6 months. I met him once and he was extremely awkward. I guess he's also extremely bad.

Maybe they have really promising stock options or something, but it seems to me that if I was making hockey sticks for free, I probably wouldn't stick around the company a full six months.

Not 100% on this but I believe their stick factory is in Mexico, it's the regional reps that haven't seen a dime

Well yeah, I'm sure they had some loyalty to the company though. What BASE is doing is a very innovative way to reach hockey players in that they specialize in designing custom hockey sticks for players - you go in for a fitting and get to try out different sticks, and at the BASE headquarters (which just moved to Langley from Burnaby) they had a camera set up so you could see your shot mechanics in slow motion. So it's a very neat way to make recreational players feel like a pro.

I'd be more than happy to.

I took a look at Mr. Lumme's twitter and it turned out he's in the same city as me. I see if he wants to meet up - after a discussion it turns out not only are we in the same city, we work in the same building on the same floor.

If I don't post in 30 minutes though, it means he took my organs during our meeting.

That is absolutely bizarre. I had a similar but less random occurrence. That neither of you are in Vancouver is the kicker.

Yeah when he mentioned the building and then the floor I had a good laugh.

I had a similar one way back in the early 2000s. Posting on a small Avs board, I made some reference to the local team's game that I went to that day, someone else made a comment and turns out we were from the same small town on the Island and were at the same high school (though I think he was in the year below me). We also randomly ended up going to the same University in a different province.

I have had a number of weirdly coincidental occurrences like this over the years, but it's usually while travelling. (I even met my own wife while travelling after running into her in two different European countries a few days apart – despite the fact that we both did our undergrads in Montreal and never met).

One of my favorites was on a plane in Stockholm. The Swedish passenger beside me was making conversation, and when he found out I was from Vancouver, he said "Oh, I recently met a famous photographer from there." Not that I know photography very much, but when I asked who it was, the name he gave me was not a celebrity – it was my elementary school art teacher.

I've also run into people I know (from school or family friends, etc.) on other continents – and not necessarily in obvious tourist spots or capital cities, either.

Another one was a couple years ago, I somewhat randomly follow a Utica Comets fan on Twitter and vice versa. Now I'm pretty sure I saw him when I went to a game in Utica in 2015 (which is no big surprise, the arena isn't that big), but a few months later I was with my wife and kids on vacation in Syracuse, and (though I wasn't 100% certain it was him until I confirmed later on Twitter) I saw him at the Syracuse zoo.
