There is an intimate connection between Canada’s geography and environment and the characteristics of Canadian hockey players. The sorts of qualities it takes to face the rugged, mountainous climate of our land or pioneer praire farms is mirrored by those our players bring to the game – passion, toughness, allegiance to team, and most of all, humility. This stands in sometimes stark contrast to American players, where, not unlike the John Wayne ethos of that country, individuality, pretentiousness and brazenness seem to dominate.

Ah the Superbowl. Even if you don't care for the American Football, it is a day celebrated in most civilized countries in the world where you can eat like the fattest American, drink like the drunkenest rummy and make believe that you have been cheering for the New Orleans Saints the entire season.
Bandwagon jumping is actually acceptable on Superbowl Sunday, as opposed to during NHL playoffs when bandwagon jumpers should be drawn and quartered upon sight.

If we consider the Canuck season as a kind of story, I wonder, will it end up being a good one?
