Typically the Hart Trophy goes to the flashier player and to the candidate with the most goals. But what is flashy and why is the flashy player often equated with being the league’s most valuable player? Ditto for goal-scoring. Why is scoring goals almost always taken to be more valuable than setting them up?
I have no doubt that Ovechkin will yet again be afforded the title of the league’s most valuable player. But should he? Isn’t there a better candidate here in Vancouver?

For the second time in 9 days, the Vancouver Canucks face the San Jose Sharks, as both clubs sit atop their respective divisions.Nine days ago, the Canucks started strong and played a solid game to win 3-2 in Vancouver. This time around, there is a lot of talk and questions around Roberto Luongo. The question is, "Is he 'back'?"

With just over two weeks remaining in the season, the push for the playoffs and home-ice advantage is on. The race for the playoffs isn’t that exciting unless you are a Flames fan and you died a slow death last night watching the Avs and Wings win.

With Henrik Sedin's 3 point night against the Ducks, Hank is back on a pace that could potentially approach the Canucks single season record (how's that for equivocation). If he continues along the same lines, he'll end up with 109.702 points, but I'll leave it to Canucks Army's stat specialist Cam Davie to figure out how he picks up the 0.702. Maybe that's the value of a second assist on an empty net goal.

Robert Luongo looks to shake off last night's poor performance in Edmonton as he and the Vancouver Canucks return home as they face the Anaheim Ducks tonight at GM Place. Both teams are looking to rebound from losses, and both teams are playing the second half of back-to-back games.
