Over at the Score they've got some touching footage of Canucks players reacting to the "summer of tragedy" and the death of former teammate Pavol Demitra. 

Jeff Tambellini had a three point debut (2 goals, 1 assist) for his new Swiss Club team Zurich in a 6-5 loss. He scored his teams 4th and 5th goals to complete a comeback from down 5-1 in a losing effort. Here's a google translate link to a gamer from a Zurich media outlet. Stick-tap Jon Haggqvist for the find.

Blast from the past: The Penguins signed former Canuck Richard Park to a two-way deal today.

Which team was the most efficient on special teams last season? Copperandblue crunched the numbers, and found (unsurprisingly) that it was the Canucks by a fair bit.

SAD GIF BREAK: Luongo and Demitra interact after Canada's semi-final win over Slovakia at the 2010 Olympics.

Yankee Canuck has a really good take summing up a dreadful hockey offseason over a Nucksmisconduct.

The Kurtenblog celebrates the fact that Rogers Sportsnet has decided to televise a couple of games from the Canucks hosted young-stars tournament this weekend, and next week. My roommate is going to be pissed as heck when I tell him we can't watch the week-one Sunday night football game because I want to count prospects tournament chances.

Finally, PassittoBulis profiles three potential "break-out players" for the Canucks this upcoming season.
