    Take One Drink Every Time:
    • His size is mentioned negatively
    • Concussion history is brought up
    • Figure skating is mentioned
    • Comparison is made to another forward on that team that's better than Skinner
    • Mistaken for a center
    • "Skates with his head down"
    • "Hasn't done anything since rookie season"
    • People still think JR is our GM

    Take Two Drinks Every Time:
    • "One more concussion and he's done"
    • Number of concussions overstated
    • Wrist injury mistaken for concussion
    • Someone posts a Skinner getting blasted video compilation
    • The blown celly video is mistaken for a concussion
    • Marc Savard mentioned

    Chug Your Drink When:
    • Explanations to the contrary for any of the above are ignored
    • A non-Canes fan starts the thread and Canes fans are told to stop putting up stupid trades
    • The trade proposed is so bad that even JR would have to be taking stupid pills to accept it

    Any other suggestions for the list?

    If there's another Calgary thread, take a drink whenever someone quotes my post demanding TJ Brodie + 2nd + Jiri Hudler.

    better idea:

    every time someone starts a thread on the main board about one of our players, do a drink every time you respond to w/e the proposal is w/ either:

    dubinsky, roszivsal, 3rd

    or

    ryder, halak, 2nd

    Knock back an entire bomber of your choice if there is ever a mention of Death to Smoochy.

    Drink any time someone says "fine, then keep him" or "we don't want him".

    Honestly can't believe all that started from an Eklund post. Has that dude gotten anything right in years?

    How sweet will be when next year our very own figure skating put up 30 goals again leading us to the playoffs and Calgary is out of it by January?

    I think that scenario is more likely a bad trip brought on by some homemade bacon vodka than reality, unfortunately.

    How about everytime someone thinks he should be traded for a bunch of lesser players and/or prospects that may or may not work out. I swear people think he should be traded for a bag of pucks basically and we think we are idiots when we don't agree to that.

    The. ****ing. Worst.

    Other people make ludicrous proposals, then act like we're the ones doing it.

    The Trade Board is madness (and not in a good way, like our board).

    Hmm. I rarely visit the trade board, mostly because I don't have any interest in hypotheticals that have a 0.01% chance of coming to fruition. Sounds like I might need to mosey on over for this one, though.
