On Wednesday night, a team featuring members of the Vancouver Canucks, their family members, and a few players from around the NHL (with ties to Vancouver), took on the UBC Thunderbirds ice hockey team.

What you'll quickly notice is that this list provides us with some perspective on how good of a job he has done in the past five years. For the sake of completeness, the list includes 10 blunders. Just know that if the first couple of them are being singled out as mistakes, then that means he has probably done his job effectively.
