Yet another Top 10 list of Tom Larscheid list of quotes from 1993. This one not so freudian but equally as humourous. The Top Ten lists ran for several years; yet never once did the Top 10 list actually can 10 items, usually it was eight or nine which always provoked letters to the editor. Go figure.

1) There's nothing like a few goals to bring a player out of a scoring slump.

2) A lot of people say the Canucks are in a slump right now, but the truth is that they just aren't playing well.

3) That's Bure's first ever goal in the NHL and its his first of the season.

4) Whichever team makes the fewest mistakes and scores the most goals is going to win this game.

5) The Canucks tonight had to play physical, play smart, and play lucky. They did both.

6) The Canucks really have to score more power play goals, especially when they have the man advantage.

7) If the Canucks want to win this game Jim, they're going to have to score a goal.

8) And with the Canucks leading 1-0, we'll take a short break then we'll be right back with more BC Lions football after the message.


From January '94, the ever popular BUM Report Top Ten List. These are actual quotes from Tom Larscheid on air broadcast of Canucks - Oilers game. Incidentally, this list hit the airwaves on at least three different local radio stations; Tom was not pleased, refusing to be intervied by BUM Report on three separate occasions.

1) I was alone with Pavel before the game and he says his groin never felt better.

2) That Ronning ... Oh boy, he sure is one smooth guy.

3) Oh Jim, don't you just love to see the big guys play the body? I know I do.

4) There's Sather, with that grin on his face, relaxing behind the bench, hands in pockets, enjoying himself.

5) Personally, I don't think Gino's upper body is 100 percent of what I've seen before.

6) I really like this youngster Arnott, he's one fine looking hocky player. He's really caught my eye, Jim.

7) Its too bad the Canucks don't have their hard guys, Hunter and Antosk,i on the ice right now

8) All those injuries have forced Pat Quinn to take a closer look at some of these younger guys.

9) Bure makes a nice back-hand pass on Ranford, and Billy-Boy handles him smoothly ... he's got those good hands, doesn't he, Jim?
