A good friend of mine, Bryan Tesan, is a teacher at Westridge Elementary in Burnaby.

He and his entire school organized a day to heal and show true community spirit after the riots following Game 7.

Here's their story. And their amazing video. THEY are all Canucks.

From a stand-alone perspective, trading Jeff Carter to Columbus is not a bad trade for the Philadelphia Flyers. Everything that happened afterwards is chaotic, as Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren laid his team's foundation and future through 2012 on a roulette table.

Where the Jeff Carter trade baffles me is that it meant more than a long contract for salary cap relief, a young roster player (Jakub Voracek) and a couple of picks, one of them #8 in a pretty decent draft.

Oh the NHL awards. The host is always dreadfully unfunny, half the players look miserable, and it's always fascinating to see what b list? c list? D list celebrities the NHL scrapes the barrel with to make an appearance/music performance. But it does bring me one of my favourite things in the world: hockey players in suits! Last night I did my best Joan Rivers impression. Let's see the results!
