He is working hard to lose his moniker "Puck Daddy" and have it replaced by "Puck Dummy."
So buddy goes on to summarize near the bottom of his article each team and for the Canucks he has this insightful tidbit:
Vancouver Canucks: By the way, the thing with the Canucks is that they’re not only not good, they’re also brutal to watch. It wasn’t easy sitting through Saturday night’s shootout win.
Yet not even half a scroll down the page he posts the video of "The Shift" that tied the game and says this:
Holy hell. The Sedins put together a shift of six shot attempts in 1:34 as they made a 5-on-5 situation look like a 5-on-3 power play. Guys also whiffed on three other passes. Then they scored the game-tying goal. This is incredible hockey.
:hmmm:

To give you an idea of the kind of duality of thinking the Canucks are putting into things these days, a perfect example comes in the avatar of Bo Horvat. He had 16 goals and 40 points last season as a sophomore, and is widely considered the “future face of the Canucks” when the Sedins finally shuffle out of the NHL (if they’re not traded first). And yet, the 40-point third-year man who will lead this team into whatever its next incarnation happens to be was getting… fourth-line minutes in the Vancouver season opener on a line with Derek Dorsett?
Bo, sixth highest icetime of Canuck forwards that game. Exactly seven minutes more than Dorsett.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

To be fair to the author, I did find the majority of the Calgary game to be horrendous to watch. This past game with the Canes had much better flow and was much more exciting to watch.

Ok, What's this about Miller being "tight" and not even able to back-up to night I just heard from the damn paperboy.
Said we had to find a back-up from UBC or something.
Gotta dig.

I'm $95 per month for 150 internet, enough channels for me to watch sports and home phone. After 1 year it goes up to $124. No home movie.

If they don't give it to you ask for another person to speak to or threaten to move to Telus.
I just signed up for that because it was so much cheaper than telus, and after them assuring me I would get all Canuck games, I find out this one is on ppv!!! Like, wtf!

As someone who does not want to give Shaw a shitton of money when hockey is literally the only thing I'd ever watch on TV, and Gamecenter isn't an option because of living in Burnaby and blackouts...

I just want to say: I'm happy that the Internet's perfectly legal streaming community seems to be growing stronger and finding hosts with higher bandwidth. :oops:
