Headshots October 12th

Sami Salo isn’t injury prone, he’s just Mr. Freeze.
Sometimes he needs to run to Gotham and play the super-villain. Mystery solved.

Headshots are a Canucksarmy feature where we link to the days freshest news, and other assorted Canucks web-goodies. If you’ve written a blogpost, made a tribute video or birthed a clever .gif into existence – please e-mail me at thom.drance@gmail.com.

Though the Canucks have earned three of a possible four points, Henrik Sedin is unsatisfied with the way the team has performed in the very early going. He criticized the team’s lack of focus while speaking with Jason Botchford today. 

The Red Wings have been inactive for a while, and they’re chomping at the bit waiting to clash with the Canucks on Thursday.

Over at Jacketscannon.com, serial Canucks hater Derek Zona has posted chance data from Monday night’s game between the Jackets and Columbus. Cam Charron’s PVR glitched so we don’t have our own count of the game, but I plugged Derek’s count into timeonice.com with the Canucks as the primary in case you’re interested in checking that out.

My favorite Canucks bloggers – the jerk-holes at Days of Y’Orr – uncovered a hilarious Canucks branded carved wooden bear whiskey cabinet monstrosity. It can be yours for only 11 grand!

GIF BREAK: Daniel Sedin uses his teeth to help him tie his tie! What you don’t see, is that Henrik was doing the exact same thing, at the exact same time in a different room. (via hockey-is-back)

A Phoenix Coyotes bloggers fantasizes about a Kyle Turris for Cory Schneider swap. Ha! Maybe if they throw in Gormley.

Cam Charron susses out what ails the Canucks power-play so far this season. Silly Burrows. 

Cody Hodgson has been impressive in the first two games of the season (he led all Canucks forwards in adjusted-corsi on Monday night) and his teammates seem to be embracing the young man. At least – that’s what it seems like from this Jason Botchford take

Finally Harrison Mooney is brilliant, and his take on Don Cherry and Canadian National Identity is a tour-de-force.
