I'd laugh about Daniel's dorky pose, but I'm scarred by those particular Luongo sweat pants.

Volpatti's toughness has been lost for the year, and the team still needs to replace his planking ability.
Following a season ending injury to Aaron Volpatti and recent injuries to "skill players" David Booth and Cody Hodgson: the Smylosphere is preoccupied with the Canucks "team toughness", and the personnel on the fourth line. This preoccupation gained added steam following a physical, dirty game against the Ottawa Senators in, which, several Canucks (including Kesler and Edler) were dealt cheap-shots while in vulnerable positions.

Chris Neil is amazing! He's driving everyone nuts! Who cares that his team is down 3-0 - let's talk about him!
Saturday night was a backwards triumph for the evil Canuck narrative. Instead of telling us why they were systematically disassembling the Senators, the brilliant collection of commentators at Hockey Night in Canada instead chose to spin a tale of aggravation and aggression. Chris Neil running around is exciting. Clinical precision is not.

Here’s a quick look at the Top-5 Russians who ever played for the blue- green-and-white (or black-yellow and red).
