Stings a little I won't lie Kenny. I get it, and still respect the sh*t out of you, but not in that good ol' Canadian way I used to.

I consider myself a dual citizen (even though it's not "official" <_< )...I love hockey, Tim Hortons are yummy, Molson is pretty good brew, I prefer CBC/TSN/Rogers (although Ken and Mickey are good lads), I know the Canadian national anthem by heart, Harper is the PM, and I speak "Canadian" fluently - eh?

Does this make things easier with things like taxes or something? I know several Wings players have taken US citizenship - Shanahan and Holmstrom spring to mind. I can understand for someone like Homer who spends 80% of his life here for 15-20 years, is bringing up kids etc and how it must make things a lot easier, but what are the benefits for Canadians?

Someone mentioned legal protections abroad, but also the lack of hassle when traveling back and forth, which is becoming more prominent along the most traveled "landing" areas. He and his family travel and it would be nice to hand over a US passport instead of a Canadian one with PR papers.

I'm a US citizen already in process to be a Canadian PR (first stage approval), within 3 years will be a dual citizen. My daughter will be a Canadian citizen before me. Whenever traveling back into Canada, until I get my citizenship, I have to show a US passport plus PR papers and have to deal with the hassle of this at the border, especially if I don't travel with my wife who is a Canadian citizen. If you think the hassle is bad this way, it's worse the other. My wife has been held up three times at the US border for four hours or more. <.<

Just in time to help out with the debt situation. Make a trade with China for "future considerations" :cool: Kenny can do it!

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Why not? We'll give them the money other nations owe us, the losing presidential candidates for the next 5 elections, Hudler, Justin Beiber, and "future considerations".

What the heck. Let's give them ALL of the presidential candidates!

Get'er done, Kenny! :thumbup:

Hmmm.... It seems that none of our creditor nations are interested in Jiri Hudler, not even for some free checks...

Oh well, guess I have to go back to hoping he can be packaged in a deal for Weber or maybe some debt relief. Maybe if we throw in Hawaii and Alaska plus a first round pick, we can get 100 Trillion forgiven. :P

I can see it now, Eva is going to say that Jiri Hudler will become a weapon of mass destruction for China and they will score even more points.

I am also assuming points are scored in China via how many people you have, not so much assists... <_<

They'll take Hudler. Keeps the hookers off the streets.
