We are living in the age of what I will dub the scientism of hockey. And like any view which has an authority over all other interpretations of some area of life, it is bound to generate its own apostles, produce its own soldiers. These are the majority of hockey players today.

Looking out my window, I am truly dreading heading outside at any point today. it's raining, it's dark, it's 5 degree Celsius, and doesn't look like it's getting any better for the rest of the day.
It's a great day for hockey!
It's Hockey Day In Canada and tonight's marquee match-up sees the Vancouver Canucks begin their epic 14-game roadtrip as they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre tonight.

I'm sure everyone in Vancouver has seen and dissected the infamous Chicago Blackhawks limo pictures starring Patrick Kane. I do applaud him for making the decision to upgrade from taxi cabs to limousines, since, well you know.. cough cough.. Buffalo. Cheap Shot? Well, yeah, but after seeing Andrew Ladd play I felt inspired.

I find myself thinking that something about the Canucks looks right these days.

There are many NHL teams that covet tough-guy players. Players like Carcillo, Ott and Laraque can earn a very good living from playing the role of a pugilist or for administering bone-shaking body checks to opposing players. Some even act as a bodyguard who protect their teams’ star players. Athletes who compete at this level are often admired by both fans and coaches for the ability to display a combination of toughness and skill.
