    Dollarama - Matthews
    Dollar Tree - Marner

    Sorry, can't finish the post. Paul Marner is hassling me to bump Marner to Dollarama.

    Fun thread. I worked at 2 of them in past so kinda interesting comments on each. Have to say I would agree except swop of Matty for Willy. KPMG has 'the northern Toronto ace' who I think has more hole in 1's than anyone else I know of in the city. Won't use partners name because probably not right on here. But I saw 1 of them. Matty is such a shooter he would have to fit that bill. and Tavares for sure would work at Deloitte. A leader who takes charge and gets in done. So by default would put Willy at PwC.

    Beat me to it. Although I was thinking of comparing our club’s stars to brands of paints.

    This is much more exciting!

    Which of the firms post hours but don’t actually open on time?

    Whichever ones those are... that’s our Big 4.

    There used to be 5
    PwC
    KPMG
    Deloitte
    EY
    Arthur Andersen

    Then Arthur Andersen was involved in the Enron scandal helping them bamboozle millions from investors. They were fined out of existence. A lot of their accountants got roles at the other firms.

    KPMG and Ernst & Young are being investigated for money laundering in Europe. Most money driven = Matthews and Marner.

    PW first in on crypto currency. Tavares first in on $11M UFA money.

    Delloitte fined 4.2M for professional incompetence in 2011 and 2012. Willie playing professionally incompetent in 2018 and 2019.

    Bonus

    Lehman Brothers. Failed after creating the appearance they had $50B more cash than they did. Tyson Barrie failed after creating appearance he was still a 50pt defenseman

    Haha the responses cracked me up hard. I must say, my expectations when creating this thread at 3 am (not sure why) have been greatly surpassed. :laugh:

    Further, not knowing them is something odd to proclaim with pride.

    I don't even really consider Nylander to be part of the "big 4" or whatever anymore.

    So Nylander is more like just a small bookkeeper.

    Two things to that:
    1 all mathematics are based off the simple stuff
    2 on the ice where the game is always changing, simple works better
