Signing J.T. Miller to an eight-year contract at 29 and soon to be 30 years old is a mistake.
Re: Miller deal was the right move for the Canucks
I have to disagree with Gordon Krinke’s letter. First off, J.T. Miller is a very good hockey player, but signing him to an eight-year contract at 29 and soon to be 30 years old, is a mistake, and it’s only going to come back to bite the Canucks after about year three, if we are lucky.
In regards to Bo Horvat, all he has done since he’s been a Vancouver Canuck regular is score more than 20 goals a season (19 in the shortened COVID season) and play huge minutes while checking the other teams top lines and playing with a revolving door of linemates. The guy is a beast in the face-off circle, and with puck possession being so important nowadays, winning the draw is huge, especially in your own zone. The guy is a true leader and what a captain should be. Not bad for a player projected to be a third-line centre and a poor skater when he was drafted.

Questions about private medical clinics
Just wondering if the private clinics are experiencing the same problems that the public health system is trying to cope with. If not, is it because they have more staff or offer better compensation and better working conditions?
Are the private clinics siphoning off the more-talented medical staff, leaving those of us who can’t afford the “special” services offered by the private clinic to fend for medical help with what’s available outside the private clinics?

Security at Eagles concert at Rogers Arena
I took exception, last Thursday night, to the tactics of the security personnel pestering fans who were attempting to take videos, myself included. Seated in row 8 FLR CTR, I found their constant vigil, walking up and down the aisles and back and forth in front of me very distracting and annoying, and I wasn’t the only one to think so.
When diplomatically asked at intermission the reason for this, they said the ”client” had requested it. Something about going live on social media would keep people from attending the event. The concert appeared sold out, so what difference would that make? I saw no reference to this when buying my ticket online or at the arena. The performance was top-notch, but what was supposed to be an enjoyable, immersive experience tuned out to be a very disappointing evening.
