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.

Too often this season, the Canucks are doing a terrible job in front of the net.

A strange week for the Canucks: dominance of the Islanders, subjugation by the Hawks, a stolen win vs Ottawa. Luongo won, Schneider lost ugly but won convincingly.
The one thing we did learn this week is the team's problems go far beyond a perceived inconsistency on the part of Roberto Luongo. The real problem lies in bad reads and heads, apparently, in the clouds.
