Not My Choice... But Congrats #19

VANCOUVER, CANADA - MAY 1:  Markus Naslund #19 of the Vancouver Canucks is congratulated by teammate Trevor Linden #16 after scoring against the Anaheim Ducks during Game Four of the 2007 Western Conference Semifinals on May 1, 2007 at General Motors Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Two former Canucks captains will share a new bond starting Saturday, with #19 joining #16 in the rafters, along with #12.

I have already made my argument. I didn't think (and still don't) that Markus Naslund should have his jersey retired. I wrote about it a year and a half ago. READ IT HERE.

But there is obviously no changing it now. On Saturday, Naslund's #19 will be raised to the rafters of Rogers Arena. And even I, one who disagrees with the choice altogether, will be cheering for him. Even if you disagree with the choice, you should be cheering too.

So do it.

GDR #26 - Ducks @ Canucks

Game Day Recon #26 - Ducks @ Canucks

The last time the Ducks and Canucks met, the Ducks still hadn't won a game... until they beat the Canucks. Getzlaf, Ryan and Perry were awful to start the year... until they beat the Canucks.

Sounds like a great recipe for revenge, don't you think?
