I like to imagine that Henrik Sedin just chopped off Ryan Smyth's legs with a scythe.
But Smitty just fell. And that's probably more funny.

Game Day Recon: Game #9 - Canucks @ Oilers

The Vancouver Canucks play at Rexall Place for the second time in 10 days, where they'll face Ryan Nugent-Hopkins... and some other guys in copper and blue with whom Mark Lee is completely unfamiliar. Just kidding, Mark Lee knows who all the Oilers are. He just straight-up doesn't care. All Nuge, all the time, right Mark?

Luckily for Canucks fans, tonight we are spared the indecency of a Mark Lee broadcast. Instead, we get the terrific insight and in-depth analysis of John "I like hot wings and smooth peanut butter" Garrett.

The Following is a guest post from our friend @GayCanuck. Gaycanuck is the Canucks correspondent for Puck Buddy's a rapidly growing website dedicated to "Boys who like boys who like hockey" originally based out of Washington D.C. Tom has a unique perspective, he's a thoroughly hilarious hockey newb with some pretty fabulous takes on Vancouver's hockey team, and on hockey fandom generally. He also runs one of the best Canucks related twitter accounts around. We're pleased to host his take on the David Booth trade.

Today I continue my weekly feature of me venting and raging on stupid crap happening with the Canucks, their fans and around the NHL. Two things about feature... 1) It will appear (hopefully) every Monday, and 2) It is blatantly ripped off from a stand-up bit from comedian Craig Anton. On either point, I make no apologies. Enjoy. Or don't.

In this week's edition, I crack the whip on TSN's schedule makers, hockey in the Desert and trolling, "professional" journalists.
