Headshots are a Canucks Army feature where we link to the day's freshest news, and other assorted Canucks web-goodies. If you've written a blogpost, produced a tribute video or birthed a clever .gif into existence - please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It appears that Chris Higgins has suffered from a zombie ravaging to one of his feet (and his general torso area), and will miss a number of games as doctors desperately try to cure the infection before he succumbs to hopeless cravings for human flesh. He's listed as day-to-day.

Today, news broke about another upstanding citizen who has been charged in connection with the game 7 riot. She's a twenty year old beauty queen, a Richmond resident and recent winner of the Miss Congeniality title at a Miss Coastal Vancouver pageant.

It's now week two of the Canucks goaltending controversy, and unsurprisingly Canucks Nation remains obsessed. Luongo played well and pitched a quality start at home against the Flames last night, but that is not going to the halt the growing momentum of Vancouver's "goaltending controversy gollum."
When Luongo allowed a vintage softy from behind the net late in the first period, Canucks fans went into their default corner: Luongo apologists to the right, Luongo haters to the left. While I've enjoyed the odd "goaltending controversy" argument and am generally bemused by the entire thing, I'd point out that the situation hasn't helped a habitually irrational fan-base to get a grip...

This mob is angry. And so am I.
Honestly though... is a mob ever NOT angry? Otherwise, it's really just a gathering.

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, 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.
In this week's edition, I give a stern look of disapproval to NHL schedule makers (AGAIN!), Wayne Gretzky and frigging ICING THE KICKER!
