There's still quite a bit... off the top of my head... Terminator 2, The Godfather Part 2, Evil Dead 2, Critters 2, Empire Strikes Back, Dead Snow 2, The Dark Knight, The Good the Bad The Ugly, Bride of Frankenstein, Dawn of the Dead... there's days where i may say Aliens is better than Alien but it's soooo damn close

apparently Star Trek the Wrath of Kahn is better than the original (the best ST movie apparently) but i always refused to watch any so i cannot confirm lol

you forgot Caddyshack 2

I should...now I can see what Ottawa Rob looks like...

Anyone who doesn’t like that deal doesn’t understand hockey in the slightest.  Please turn around and hold up your phone so he can read this lol. 

He's a well-spoken man. I hope we keep him long term.

My nightmare would be trading for Domi Jr, and drafting a demon spawn of Sean Avery. Imagine an Avery - Domi - Foote, line...lol

 

Kovy`s comeback. And i deffently can`t think about roy`s kids in our system. And... Roy as a coach. Oh my God it doesn`t sound like a thing that can`t be. I realized my deepest fear right in this moment.

My nightmare would be instead of forfeiting our pick we end up drafting Mattaeu's kid and he ends up becoming a complete bust and doesn't even score an ot playoff goal for us against the Rangers.... Oh wait, fvck.

Sort of annoying — if the Canucks miss the playoffs this year, the pick slides to 2021. So we have to hope for a last second slip in to the playoffs and a quick first round exit. 

True, but I haven’t read anything about the pick having any protections next year.  The ideal scenario then actually becomes the Canucks missing the playoffs this year and then collapsing completely next year.  We can’t get their first rounder in the top end of the round this year, but if it isn’t lottery protected then we could theoretically have two shots at the number one pick next year.  At the least we could get a very high pick next year instead of a later pick this year. 

If the Devils find that the player they want can be picked later then they’d be able to trade back and add even more assets.  This Coleman trade could be parlayed into a potentially huge haul with some luck.  So here is to whomever is player the Canucks today..... kick their asses for the next season and a half!

Now please excuse me while I take another hit.........  yea, that’s the stuff.

This is essentially what happened to the Senators in the Duchesne / Turris deals and it eventually cost them the 4th overall.   Not sure that will happen to the Canucks but who knows if a guy like Petterson gets a long term injury.

Kings trade Toffoli to van. I think Vancouver has more chances for playoff after that

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is indeed overall better than Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

They released a new director's cut of Star Trek: The Motion Picture a decade or so ago that is actually quite better than the theatrical release.  The director, Robert Wise of The Sound of Music fame, cut finishing the movie so close that he had to physically bring the "finished" copy to the premier of the movie.  He stated many times over the years that the theatrical cut was not really is vision.  The main changes with the director's cut was the completion of several special effects shots that were somewhat incomplete in the theatrical cut, the addition of some special effects shots that clarified the story and visuals a bit (and getting a better look at the film's antagonist, V'Ger), and the cutting of several minutes of the cast literally staring at the viewscreen on the bridge.  That last part was a huge complaint of the theatrical cut as many felt half the movie was literally the theater audience watching the cast watching the Enterprise bridge viewscreen.

The new director's cut did certainly close the relative gap in terms of quality between the two films but Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is still indeed better and more in the spirit of the original show.

So real quick trade injection here in the middle of this sequel talk, lol

Pronman’s analysis of Foote’s game has me excited if for no other reason than “he will drive into the dirty areas,” something we didn’t do AT ALL last night. I’m no advanced stats guy by any means but the graph Todd Cordell posted of us taking ZERO shots from the slot pisses me off to no end.

He needed a graph to say that instead of just saying "Devils took no shots on goal from the slot the entire game"?

Good god is that pretentious and redundant.  That goes for both the addition of a graph and the wording.

I found that graph interesting.

What a bizarre thing to get upset about.

I am not upset in the slightest lol.  I just find it amusing how self-important stat-nerds tend to be.

“Stat nerds” ~ “literally doing his fvcking job” but, uh, word.

I guess I am the weirdo for thinking needing a heat map and using the phrase "The Blue's slot was a complete no-fly zone tonight" as being pretentious to describe the Devils getting no shots from the slot in the game.

He's a writer so he's going to keep it more interesting than "no shots from the slot". Since when is using "no-fly zone" pretentious?

I'm not a big fan of over-analyzing stats but I didn’t see anything pretentious about his wording or graph. It showed statistically what the eye test was saying. It felt like we had no high chance shots and that confirms it.

lol I guess I am old-school but a simple "Devils took no shots from the slot the entire game" without a heat-map would have done the job just as well.

Looks like you answered your own question.

I am not pissed or upset about all this lol.  I just find it really amusing how much they try to sound smarter.

At least it is not yet on the cringe level as when these pseudo hockey bloggers write "player x is a treat to watch."  Sorry but that gets my skin crawling lol.
