Yeah, yeah, another Henrik Sedin article. The internet is already awash with them, but hey, let's enjoy this. Who knows when this will happen again? Whether debating his Hart Trophy candidacy or just the shock of of a non Ovechkin/Crosby scoring champ, the Henrik Sedin bandwagon seems to be a tad bit fuller then ever before.
Even out here on the West Coast, we were slow to warm to the magic of the Sedins. The hardest thing to do as a sports fan is admit that you've been wrong. It's embarrassing, so we pathologically try to find ways to justify our original opinion, that may have been jumped to a little too quickly. I have to put myself into the category of people who doubted the Sedins. I always admired there skill and thought they were pretty good, but wondered aloud if they good ever be the number one line on a winning team. I never went so far as to call them the sisters, but I did joke that someone should tell them the net isn't in the corner. They changed a little, the did get better, but that's just excuse making on my part. I was wrong. Everyone should admit it. Many of us were wrong. It feels good try it.

Hayden Panettiere licking anything is great. Her with the Cup is bloody brilliant.
The post-season is upon us. From now on, every game is vital, every win is crucial, every play is analyzed, and every goal is one step closer to glory.
The year, with Henrik Sedin capturing the first league scoring title in the team's history, many Canucks fans are legitimately asking themselves, "Is this the year?"
