Canucks speedster Mason Raymond has worked himself nearly all the way back from a broken back that he suffered in game six of last June's Stanley Cup Final. He's been cleared for contact, and though the team is scattershot about the exact date of his return, he should make his 2011-12 debut soon. While we don't know exactly when he'll be back in the lineup (I doubt he plays tomorrow in Denver), his imminent return will almost certainly provide the team with a boost. But how much of one?

Here is something you can't understand, how Maxim can just kill a man.
I almost published a post on Sunday night about the Lapierre hit on Jesse Winchester that resulted in Winchester going through the gate and onto the Canucks bench. Ultimately, I decided that it was a complete non-story unworthy of mention and that if I posted it, it would be a cynical attempt to troll for hits. Well, a frustrated Senators team, and Bruce Garrioch took a different view (resulting in the story making Puck Daddy):

Going into the offseason I thought it was pretty unlikely that I would receive a contract offer in the NHL.
That is the circle of life in the NHL.

PiTB has posted all of the "Salo is your Palo" submissions. This one is my favorite.
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.

This guy is a famous actor AND he's angry. But he's probably just acting like he's angry.
Cuz that's what those crazy actor types do. Anyway, I'm angry too.
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'm fed up with CROSBYWATCH, Kesler telling us to zip it, and seeing who's at the top of the league standings.
