Steve Jobs once said that patience is a virtue. He probably wasn't the first to say it, and I can't really confirm he said it at all, but you have to believe that he said it at some point. After all, it's a very good quote.

In this fifth game of the preseason, the Canucks take on the Glendale/Phoenix/Arizona Coyotes.

On April 9th, 2009, a dream was born. No, that's not when the Hockey Gods decided that the Canucks would be stuck with goaltending controversies for the following decade (though that would explain a lot). On that day, Nations Network overlord of overlords Wanye Gretz dreamt of putting together an army - a Canucks Army.
