Not IIHF size ice (or for that matter even a long track)

Longtime Burnaby Olympic boosters, the BCA, are now being critical of VANOC for keeping NHL-sized ice for the 2010 games.

Not only does Burnaby council dislike the Olympics (see Richmond speedskating oval) but it also hates fiscal responsibility (see 1976 Montreal Olympics where Mayor Jean Drapeau gave birth to an expensive baby). So, in summary, Burnaby council hates the Olympics, will gain no infrastructure as the result of the games, but wants to leave the ratepayers on the hook for millions of cost overruns by having that European-sized ice that Don Cherry loves so much.

Nick Volkow commenting on hockey is so apples and oranges. The guy should get his fat arse out of the truck and lose some pounds before his comments can be taken seriously about a sporting event.

Ha Ha. I agree. It's like the 300 pound woman giving her opinion about a bikini.

I dont know about you, but theres nothing more appealing than a 300 pound woman in a bikini on hockey skates trying to win the Clarkson Cup.
By the way, for a womans hockey team of 24 players, how many cups are needed? Answer 48!

Agree there ha ha ha.

About as bad as Andrew Stewart the Team Burnaby Mayor candidate talking about cars and safe responsible driving.

As a few of us in the BCA know, Nick is pretty fit. Just a bit of a Molson Muscle. But Nick's good.

I never heard Stewart talk about cars and safe responsible driving.
When did he do that?

"Nick is pretty fit"

Depends on your definition of pretty fit.

Rosie O'Donnell probably thinks she is pretty fit too.

He hasn't and shouldn't.

Simply because he didn't.
