Already Looking to Summer

March 3, 2008

It’s less than a week since the trade deadline, and while the Canucks have picked up 2 of a possible 6 points, they are a disappointing 0-1-2 in that spell. 

Not only that, the teams top line has gone pointless in those 3 games, and while there has been some secondary scoring, the team seems to be more apathetic as the games go by.

Even Luongo’s passion has diminished since their loss to Colorado last week.



Game 06 – VAN 2 SJ 4

October 15, 2007

The Good
I wonder if someone told Henrik to actually shoot this year.  His goal tonight was awesome, it reminded me of a Linden type shot off one knee.  Anyways, at this rate, Henrik might actually hit double digits for goals this year!  Okay, I’m being a bit facetious, he normally gets double digits, but he’s never hit 20.  And right now he’s on pace for 27.


Game 05 – VAN 4 EDM 1

October 13, 2007

The Good
Another win, but this time at home.  On their third try, they were finally able to replicate at home what they have been doing on the road.

The Sedins absolutely own Edmonton.  Both are on track for record years.   Their display in the second period for 2:15 of power play and even strength dominance was incredible.  And Daniel’s goal to close off all that was awesome, he paused and picked his spot.  Simply amazing to have that kind of patience.


Game 02 – VAN 4 CAL 3 (OT)

October 6, 2007

I love watching hockey in HDTV.  I am so thankful the CBC have more that just 1 HD set of equipment now.

Sportsnet still has a long way to go on this.  I hardly watch anything that isn’t on an HD channel anymore.  I looked for the hockey game for 5 minutes before I remembered it would probably be on the regular Sportsnet channel.

But, about the game…


Rypien’s Hit – Aftermath

September 30, 2007

I am tired of players acting stupid, and having the blame placed on the other player because the stupid one is injured.

Nobody wants to see a guy taken off on a stretcher.  Nobody.


Reliance on the Twin

August 28, 2007

Yes, the singular Twin.  Henrik.  I was on Foxsports a minute ago and read this piece on reliance of goal scorers on a single playmaker.  Guess who was #1 in the league.  Daniel.

Here’s how the top ten break down:


One Goal

Here’s a great little advertisement from a website promoting hockey for kids.  I thought it was pretty funny:
