Mid-Day Headshots is a CanucksArmy feature where we round up today's freshest Canucks news including funny gifs, awesome videos, cool photos and interesting links. If you've written a Canucks blog-post and want it to be featured here, e-mail me at thom.drance@gmail.com.

The jersey above is from the Days of Y'Orr post "Re-imagining the Canucks." Once I got over my knee-jerk reaction to the very idea of letting our mortal enemies re-design the Canucks alternate sweater - I realized I actually like their design quite a bit. Though I tend to agree with the Pez man - the sweater would look better with the Johnny Canuck V logo - green is a hugely under-represented colour in the NHL, so I definitely give this third jersey a passing grade.

Botch writes on the need to acquire second-line help for when Kesler returns, enter Owen Nolan!

Passittobulis has a take on the opportunity afforded Cody Hodgson by Kesler's recent surgery. It's a bit harsh in my view - Hodgson's impressed me in his limited time with the big-club, and his AHL production is more promising than the counting stats indicate. Certainly I see no evidence for calling Cody Hodgson "unmotivated." It's very rare that I disagree this vehemently with the talented Mr. Mooney.

Blast from the past: the Winnipeg Jets have signed Newfoundland native and former Sedin trigger man Jason King to a contract.

Bieksa, Oreskovich and Tanev appeared on TSN's Off the Record yesterday. Oreskovich is surprisingly well-spoken, I thought, and Chris Tanev is way hunkier than my obsessive google-images searching had led me to initially believe.

Gillman and Gillis spoke with Pratt and Taylor yesterday on the TEAM1040 and rejected the idea of a "Finals Hangover" on the grounds that "the team is pissed of." Good to hear.

i don't know how a GM and assistant GM can poo-poo the idea of a cup hangover when they aren't the ones playing the game. 2~ months to recover from that much physical abuse isn't a long time at all.
