Um . . . no. I certainly give the kid an "A" in the heart department for his willingness to drop the gloves, even though he doesn't have anywhere near the size to be a heavyweight. He's also not that bad positionally. But, the young man has some issues moving the puck that would probably induce a he...

Warming the cockles of my heart

Sheldon Souray. It's a name I can't hear enough of. Let me repeat it again in all it's glory. Sheldon Souray, Edmonton Oiler. Ahhhh. The thought of our boys having the opportunity to skate circles around this pylon eight times this season warms the cockles of my heart. Last night's pre-season tilt h...

AV said in today's Province that Dan is being looked at for the big club - not the Moose. Well, let's see what he's got left in the tank. We might all be surprised. After all, McGillis wasn't playing in the minors because he was a crappy d-man. He was stuck in Lowell because Lou Lamorello handed out...

Enjoy? What's there to enjoy about being a Cassandra? Hers is the tragedy of the prophet who is ignored by all those around her. It's a sad, sick and twisted tale . . . another chapter in the dark novel of botched hopes and frustrated dreams which is Canucks history. Sadly, the WCE-era Canucks could...

Thoughts on last night's game. The Good: Edler. Welcome to the NHL, son. I was impressed with his poise and decisionmaking. Much less flustered and pushed around than last season. Finished the setup from Nazzy well. Actually, played better than Lukas. Grabner. Oh, so this is why we drafted him! Came...

CBA kicks players in the groin!

The Nucks are suffering from a near-biblical plague of groin injuries early in the pre-season: Trevor Linden, Byron Ritchie, Rick Rypien, Brendan Morrison and Willie Mitchell are all sidelined with "bruised and tender flesh" in their pelvic regions. The culprit for these stretched groins? Perhaps a ...

Hairline fracture. Out indefinitely.

Assuming Salo's gone for a goodly portion of the season, this presents Nonis with a real cap headache.

The interesting thing is that at the beginning of last season the loss of a veteran d-man even for a couple of weeks would have had many Canuck-watchers tearing out their hair and predicting doom and gloom. Today, because of the squad's depth on the blueline, it's a "meh". It just shows how the deve...

Mine changes depending on the mood. Right now, it's anything by The Police. One of the greatest bands of all-time, bar none. My three pre-teen kids surprisingly really like their first two albums. They sing along with "Bombs Away" and "So Lonely" in the car. I've always kinda had a soft spot for "B...
