Forbes says the Leafs are roughly worth 1.15 billion dollars. Only NHL team to make it into the top 50, being the worlds 26th most valuable sports franchise.

Hey, @Pent_House , you're familiar with Eastern Europe and all, who shot down that plane?  Just an untrained and trigger happy moron or is this all just Putin trying to stir up trouble?

I'm surprised how many think Kevin Dineen is the new Marlies coach.

Someone started an interesting thread similar to this.  Here's an interesting question.  If 7 of our provinces iced their best players and went head-to-head against each other, who would win and why?


NS

Marchand - Crosby - MacKinnon

A. MacDonald - Grant

J. MacDonald


QC

Perron - Bergeron - St. Louis

Vlasic - Letang

Fleury


ON

Stamkos - Tavares - Perry

Doughty - Subban

Mason


MB

Sharp - Toews - Penner

Keith - Harmonic

Reimer


SK

Marleau - Getzlaf - Eberle

Murray - Schenn

Holtby


AB

Hall - Little - Iginla

Bouwmeester - Phaneuf

Scrivens


BC

Benn - Johansen - Lucic

Rielly - Weber

Price

@Jmessih I've seen that too eh, no fear of them going anywhere anytime soon. NHL would be nothing without us!

@MaxwellHowe @Pent_House Who really knows, you have to be on the ground to really have correct info like that. My gut would say Russia or pro-russian separatists, no difference really. Could have been Ukraine but I doubt it, unless they mistook it for a figher jet or some bs. 


Historically Russian gov't is the bad guy in our corner of the world.

@Hmmm Ontario wins pretty easily IMO. Best RW in Canada(top3 in the world), two top 5 centers in the world(if Stammer is LW, then he's the best LW in the world), top 3 Dman in the world, top offensive Dman in the world. As long as Mason played the way he did this year, they're the best.

@Hmmm Rielly over Seabrook? Not sure about that just yet. Also RNH or Johansen? Also Mason or Mike Smith?

@Hmmm I think  ON but Mason worries me

I feel really bad for Uke's though, they've been torn between Poland and Russia for hundreds of years, and they're always in the worst financial and living conditions. They're the poorest on the bloc since forever. My grandparents have been calling and telling me about the massive amounts of refugees and victims coming into Poland. 

Hmmm
Hmmm

@loomx ON certainly has the depth, my scenario is just 5-on-5 :)

Hmmm
Hmmm

@NinetyThree Rielly over Seabrook mainly because Weber is a righty.  RNH could be better.  I'll have to take your word on Smith.

Hmmm
Hmmm

@RandomScrub Likely it will be close between ON and BC with QC being a dark horse.

Hmmm
Hmmm

@Bruffins Interesting choice. They win with offense I assume?

@Hmmm @NinetyThree they're good lineups, just throwing out other possibilities. I see the logic with Rielly. Agree about RNH even though I prefer the other guy. At this point I'd lean on Smith over Mason but Smith seems to be more of a product of playing in a good defensive system.

So one theory they're posing now is what I was saying earlier about the passenger jet being confused for a military aircraft, but pro-russian forces shooting it down.



I'm just wondering why Malaysian Airlines would fly through a war-zone.. not a great idea at all. 

Hmmm
Hmmm

@MaxwellHowe @Fish Head  Thanks, now we can have an 8th team.

PE

Gallant- B. Richards - Ott

Gormley - McQuaid

Drew MacIntyre


Or a combination of PE and NL would be more competitive.

PE - NL

Clowe NL - B. Richards PE - Purcell NL

Pardy NL - McQuaid PE

Drew MacIntyre PE

At big picture yea it's East vs West but saying Ukraine has fuck all to do with it is short-sighted bro. Russia is going to do everything possible to keep Ukraine under the wing, as it's their last territory blocking them from Western Forces. If Ukraine moves along with the West, the West will be right up against the Russian Border. This same exact shit was happening in Poland 20 years ago, when we were the frontline country beside the West. There's going to be all kind of other bs  and sub-plots surrounding it, but that's my view on it.

@MaxwellHowe @Xxxxxnew @Pent_House IMAX fills almost your whole field of vision, unlike the theatre where you can see the frame around the screen if you're not too close. It's an anchor for your brain, unlike IMAX.

I understand that whole line of thinking but Russia didn't start this whole mess bro.


Russia is on the defensive while the west is on the offensive. Ukraine was trying to get away to start this whole thing, so I don't really see it as Russia poking, it's more like the West poking and trying to nab another slice of the pie. This whole shit started when Ukrainians wanted to join the EU.
