Mellanby Joins the Canucks

May 14, 2008

Here’s the article from the Canucks website.  And another one from TSN.

Doesn’t this sound like a position that Trevor Linden should be sitting in?  Why Scott Mellanby with no connections to this city whatsoever.

I’m a little disgusted right now. 

Updated: Mellanby is not even moving here.  There goes your connection to the Vancouver Hockey Fan.  Despite not having a Stanley Cup, this team has done an amazing job of staying connected with the city.  Now Gillis has hired someone, who can’t be bothered to even move here.

SemiFinal Predictions

May 12, 2008

WESTERN CONFERENCE

Detroit vs Dallas – Detroit in 5
I despise Dallas even more now that they landed Fabian Brunnstrom.  Unbelievable, they got Richards and Brunnstrom out from under us. 

EASTERN CONFERENCE

Pittsburgh vs Philadelphia – Pittsburgh in 5
Philadelphia has really surpased my expectations this post season.  Pittsburgh has only lost 1 game so far this post season.  No way they don’t close it out against Philly to make a finals appearance.

First Round – 6 for 8 correct. 
Second Round – 2 for 4 correct.
