All this news has popped up about the Vancouver Canucks apparently owing money to Mark Messier. I'd rather not get into the legal ramifications, because I'm no lawyer, but instead I'd like to ask... why weren't the Canucks, such a good team in 1997-98 on paper, such a bad hockey team in the end?

Dave Bolland, master of gender roles.
Just 37 seconds into Blackhawks Live at Harry Caray's presented by The Village at Bedford Park, host Dave Kaplan referred to Henrik and Daniel Sedin as "sisters".

The quick and easy answer to that question is about 2 shots per game.
It was announced last night that David Booth, an early-season trade pickup by Mike Gillis, will be out 4-to-6 weeks with a MCL injury sustained in Tuesday's 6-0 win over Colorado. Booth was the victim of a knee-on-knee collision from Colorado's Kevin Porter, who can expect a howler from Brendan Shanahan's office sometime Thursday or Friday.

As his percentages continue to normalize, Bieksa's dental PDO took a hit tonight.
A shaky start to a Tuesday night game, but the Vancouver Canucks took advantage of a porous Russian goaltender and pulled away with this game late. The Canucks beat their division (and soon to be Conference) rival Colorado Avalanche 6-0, giving them their second shutout win. This shutout, however, was split, as Roberto Luongo after a strong start, took a puck off the throat and had to leave the game. In came Schneider in a 1-0 game, and he was strong in mop-up duty.
