Game Day Recon #28 - Canucks @ Oilers

The Vancouver Canucks look to rebound from an overtime loss last night at home, as they travel to Edmonton to face the Oilers for the second time this season at Rexall Place. Last time around, former Oiler Raffi Torres scored a hat-trick and the game winning goal after his former club clawed back from a 3-0 deficit.

Has Raffi got some more magic in him tonight?

I'm Pretty Sure It Was Naslund

When it was announced that Markus Naslund's jersey would be retired - the news was met with a hearty mix of skepticism, mockery (mostly from Leafs fans), and for some: jubilation. Count me in the third category.

Not My Choice... But Congrats #19

VANCOUVER, CANADA - MAY 1:  Markus Naslund #19 of the Vancouver Canucks is congratulated by teammate Trevor Linden #16 after scoring against the Anaheim Ducks during Game Four of the 2007 Western Conference Semifinals on May 1, 2007 at General Motors Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Two former Canucks captains will share a new bond starting Saturday, with #19 joining #16 in the rafters, along with #12.

I have already made my argument. I didn't think (and still don't) that Markus Naslund should have his jersey retired. I wrote about it a year and a half ago. READ IT HERE.

But there is obviously no changing it now. On Saturday, Naslund's #19 will be raised to the rafters of Rogers Arena. And even I, one who disagrees with the choice altogether, will be cheering for him. Even if you disagree with the choice, you should be cheering too.

So do it.
