I'd have to say that I agree. Colin got this one right. Now if he would only consent to my proposed change to the schedule and have the Flames playn the Ducks in Anaheim on "Anaheim Gay Day" over the Columbus day weekend, when that LA suburb's homosexual community all proudly wear crimson in public....

Ick.

Alow me to repeat that.

Yes, repetition is good for the soul. So repeat after me . . .

There are no positives whatsoever the Club can take away from that game. Nothing.

Tough break. Burke always felt that his tenure in Vancouver would be judged on the results of the Sedin deal. Now, with some water having passed under the bridge, it's become clear that he did pull off a staggering high-stakes coup in that draft - the mark of a talented GM. Still, with the Luongo de...

Edler sent down

To the Moose he goes. http://canucks.nhl.com/team/app/?service=page&page=NewsPage&articleid=339677 I assume it's a conditioning stint (or is Sami closer to returning than we have been expecting?). I'm not looking forward to Weaver seeing a lot of icetime. His positioning seems pretty sound, but his ...

Ick. That was about as fun as being licked by a camel. So how many completely, totally, glaringly, wide, spaceous and open expanses of net did Shannon miss tonight anyways? It's hard to imagine a human being on skates being set up any nicer. (If we had signed Roenick he would have had a hat trick to...

Our very own "Moonlight" Graham! Hey, kudos to the McIver for his impressive effort in camp and during the pre-season. Gotta love this guy's fearlessness. Let's hope the kid continues to develop with the Moose and forces DN and AV to make some tough decisions at next year's camp. Keep working on tha...

Nonis and Burke are cut from the same mold - once you're gone, you're gone. I'm not sure they're entirely like that. How many times has Burke signed or traded for Brad May? Nonis brought Sopel back. I think both GM's are willing to revisit players. The situation just has to be right. And at the mom...

A good take on Johnny Canuck. The skyline's obviously better than his prior mask.

I would have preferred a starker mask simply adorned with the message - "Run me and Aaron Miller will pound your sorry ass into sand!" - but this one's not bad.

I'd prefer the Cup not to be awarded due to an influenza epidemic killing millions of innocents, like in 1919.

And speaking of epic disasters: Poseidon Adventure or Towering Inferno?

Colour me baffled. :?

We pass on a tested masher like McGillis then pick up this . . . this . . . homunculus?

Something just doesn't compute here. My only guess is that Nonis has gone on an extended bender. Tambellini should take away Dave's cell phone until he sobers up.

Actually, I'm kinda suprised about McGillis He struck me as being a near-ideal veteran 7th defenseman - a heck of an upgrade on Rory in the depth department. That would have allowed Edler to get big minutes and additional development time with the Moose and the opportunity to get some experience pla...

Decisions, decisions . . .

It's official. Burrows has made the team. Canada.com Link Given that the PK won the game for us tonight (along with the lights out play that Sanford is capable of once out of every four outings - if he only had some consistency he'd be a starter), it seems that Alex's spot is deserved. With a goal t...

Helluva step down from the Wings.

Poor guy.

But hey . . .now that Wirtz is dead things might be looking up for the Windy City's team.

Then again, Harold Ballard died 20 years ago and the Leaves still suck . . .

No big surprises.

Burrows is unlikely to be sitting in the press box. AV mentioned earlier today that he was the only veteran not named Sedin or Luongo who seemed to be taking the pre-season seriously.

Cue "Naslund Should Hand Over the "C" to Burrows Rumors".
