Well, it's been a while. Between zipping down to Edmonton/Calgary for the World Juniors and a host of other things, it's been better than a month since we've checked in on the Nation Network Hockey Pool. As it turns out, a lot can happen in that amount of time.

Eight years ago, at the conclusion of the last collective bargaining agreement between the NHL and NHLPA, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and then NHLPA director Bob Goodenow were set in their respective positions and firing salvos at each other through the media. Today, Bettman and new NHLPA director Donald Fehr are approaching the end of another CBA in a very different matter: by putting negotiations off.

What can I say... these guys are the best.
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 Thom at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hey everyone, welcome to "The #Canucks Week in Tweets!" Every week, I plan on bringing you the best of the Canucks on Twitter, from the reasonable to the totally ridiculous (okay, mostly ridiculous)! If you see a tweet you think should be featured here, get in touch with me @cullenthecomic!
Oh, Garry Valk. If you’re not accusing Luongo of faking an injury to win the shootout, you’re somehow implying that the Canucks team is composed entirely of women who are perpetually worried about breaking their nails. I guess Garry Valk avoided getting hit when he played, because he didn’t want to smear the glass with fake tanner.
More Tweets after the jump!

It is true. I have joined the Army. No brushcut, no fatigues, no basic training – in fact, no training of any kind – I’m jumping right in and hoping to have some fun in this space as the Canucks hit the stretch run, approach the trade deadline and advance into the playoffs.
When the guys who oversee this website first approached me a few weeks back, I was flattered that they thought there was a fit for me, with what they’ve created here at Canucks Army. But I didn’t know if it was something I wanted or needed to do. However, after some time, I realized that while I have an outlet for my thoughts about the hockey club on the Team 1040, in the weekly column I write for the Georgia Straight, and on Twitter, one thing I was missing was a regular space to call my own on the web. A spot where I can post whatever I want, whenever I want as thoughts cross my mind about the Vancouver Canucks.
And now I have that here at Canucks Army.
