Chris Higgins' abs look like bread rolls according to canuckslookalikes.tumblr.com.

Headshots are a Canucks Army feature where we link to the day's freshest news, and other assorted Canucks web-goodies. If you've written a blogpost, produced a tribute video or birthed a clever .gif into existence - please e-mail Thom at thom.drance@gmail.com.

Ryan Kesler dodges the Shanaban hammer and won't face any supplementary discipline for his clip of Cal Clutterbuck last night. Hockey Wilderness reacts.

Meanwhile the Minnesota Wild refer to the Canucks as the "Dirty Vancouver Divers...er Canucks" on their facebook page. Pretty funny.

In part two of a series, Brian Beitz goes undercover as a Tampa Bay Lightning Fan. (Smug Nation)

Cognitive dissonance break: NESN writes up the Kesler low-bridge. We've been on record at this blog saying it was a bad hit, but NESN still manages to achieve the predictable "wow" factor with the following image. The image is captioned with "it's tough to say how much lower one player is than another." Yeah it's tough to say if you're Stevie Wonder.

Of course, the take fails to mention the two punches Marchand gave to Salo prior to his predatory low-bridge that cost the Bruins the game, and also doesn't account for how much "hittier" Cal Clutterbuck is than Sami Salo. 

Daniel Wagner parses Mike Russos on the severity of Daniel's slashy response to Dany Heatley's antics last night. (Pass it to Bulis)

The Canucks call in Dr. Recchi for some consultation writes our pal the Stanchion. Can everyone stop whipping the "Dr. Recchi" meme horse already, trust me - it's already dead. (Legion of Blog)

Province Sports takes a shot at Pass it to Bulis. Heads will roll.

Stats have not proven Dr. Recchi meme to be dead.

All I hear in Vancouver is the Chicago game is the big game, losing to Minn was nothing. First of all Toews is not playing so this isn't the big test they want us to believe. Second there have been very few teams in the history of the league that can turn it on and off at will. NYI and EDM were that type of team. Vancouver has some real problems they are healthy and losing games.

This team won't win the cup.

The core players this year have gotten worse. Not one of them is better than last year. I would say this is a problem. I think last year Vancouver was +71 this year +41. Other teams in the conference have gotten better

Nash, Stl and probably Detroit.

All this means Vancouver chances of getting to the cup are less than last year

I love the word "hittier". I plan on sprinkling it into my regular conversation.
