Welcome everybody to the first ever live chat at CanucksArmy.com. Tonight the Canucks take on the pesky Wild who always bring it when they play the Canucks, even though everyone in Vancouver (and in every NHL city basically) regard their franchise with little more than complete and utter apathy. Should be a boring game, but hopefully we can liven it up!

Hey November, Canucks fans are stoked to see you.
Headshots are a Canucksarmy feature where we link to the days freshest news, and other assorted Canucks web-goodies. If you've written a blogpost, made a tribute video or birthed a clever .gif into existence - please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sorry about the lack of head-shots posts this week, I've been extraordinarily sick. My personal health aside, let's get to it.

It was supposed to be another Cinderella story. A Russian prospect (always a gamble to begin with) came seemingly out of nowhere to scored 2 goals in his first preseason game against the Islanders in a 2:1 win for the Canucks. He kept it going and turned some heads when Alain Vigneault put him on a line with the Sedins for the rest of preseason, then started him on a second line with Ryan Kesler at the beginning of the regular season.
