Kent Wilson is Angry. (It's not really Kent Wilson, but kind of looks like him somewhat).
Today I continue my weekly feature of me venting and raging on stupid crap happening with the Canucks, their fans and around the NHL. Two things about feature... 1) It will appear (hopefully) every Monday (this week, Tuesday!), and 2) It is blatantly ripped off from a stand-up bit from comedian Craig Anton. On either point, I make no apologies. Enjoy. Or don't.
This week, I'm mad about gross make-outs, Cherry's nativism and Chris Tanev in the press box. Seriously, WTF?

The Good and the Bad of this past week.
It's Friday. So we close out the "Week That Was" with our latest volume of... "Cheers and Jeers!"
This week, I give a high-five to the new Canucks, our man Ace and the Flying W, while I point and laugh at Ritch Winter and Devin Setoguchi.

So Andrew Gordon's new teammates decided to jazz up his new stall.

They've broken our hearts, game after game, year after year.

This is the second part of a two-part post where we chronicle and count down the top 10 Canuck Killers active in the NHL today. Read part one here.
The term "Canucks Killer" has been around for many years and Canucks fans are well aware of what it means. There's just a few players out there, who always seem to go for the jugular when they face Vancouver's club. A "Canuck Killer" scores frequently, tallies key disheartening goals, or just racks up points game after game. When you see a Canucks Killer, you know it. He's the player who can turn any Canucks fan briefly turn into Marlon Brando from Apocalypse Now, desperately whispering "the horror, the horror" at their television set.
I decided to track them all down, quantify them, rank them and share them all with you, because Canucks fans don't have enough to stress out about these days. Let's take a look at which active NHLers consistently take the Canucks to task.

The St. Louis Blues HATE goal scoring.
For the Canucks tonight, all they need is LOVE.

Game Day Recon: Game #65 - Blues @ Canucks
Everyone loves goal scoring in the NHL, right? You always hear that a 6-5 game is much more exciting than a 1-0 game. Heck, even Gary Bettman and the league altered the rules of the game coming out of the lockout to increase scoring, because fans love goals. So goal scoring equals love in the NHL.
The Blue Meanies hated love. And the St. Louis Blues (meanies) HATE goal scoring. Tonight, the Vancouver Canucks have a small challenge ahead of them: Become the Beatles.
