An East Coast American's lethal obsession with Canada's West Coast hockey team.
I don't know if I can really get behind the Canucks/Sharks without Kyle Wellwood around. But I'll give it the ol' college try folks.
Vancouver is heading into the spring with a bit more offense, but plenty of question marks about consistency and, oh yeah, the issue with that back-up goalie guy.
I've never seen more selective outrage over waiving a fourth liner for another fourth liner than I did yesterday. "Upside", "grit" and "character" aside, these players are assets for the chess board and we're bitching about the pawns.
So yesterday wasn't an ideal way to celebrate your average hump day, but there's no such thing as an average day for Vancouver Canuck fans.
Let me get this straight: scores from multiple lines, offense support from the blueline and a strong showing in net from one of the two starters backups whatever. That's quite the statement from the team who won't win the Northwest.
It was nice to kick around the hapless Avs last night, but all eyes are on tomorrow night's tilt with the Hawks before swinging back through the Northwest against the Wild and Oilers. I want six points please. This is our concern, Dude.
Sorry for the delay in the news. We wanted to bask in the afterglow of Zack Kassian's extreme awesomeness.
With Vandermeer clearing waivers, we should get the word soon that Jordan Schroeder is coming to the rescue. Or maybe it'll be Joe Cannata just to add to the ongoing goalie controversy floating around. Speaking of which...
Fine, so this weekend didn't exactly go according to plan. No worries, it's a long season...wait, no it isn't. Crap.
...it was only a matter of time until these pages got flooded with Breaking Bad references. What do you think we've been doing during this lockout anyway?
Just a few more days before training camp starts (still TBD, but likely Sunday or Monday) and the news is really rolling in. What a difference a few days makes.
Isn't it the worst when you forget that guy's name and suddenly you're at some party and he's in front of you saying hello? Let's avoid that embarrassment.
We shouldn't reveal in the pain of others. But we do a lot of things we shouldn't do around here, so why stop now?
Chicago looks to avenge their OT loss against Peoria earlier this week when they close out their preseason home schedule tonight.
Lack is missing a wallet, Volpatti is signing candy boxes (maybe) and the Sharks are handing out pins. This is life everyone. May I have this dance?
