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.

Our good friend The Stanchion, welcomes the new American Express Line to Vancouver.

Worried about David Booth’s terrible +/-? Alain Vigneault’s not because he knows +/- is a dubious stat that means nothing. What do the Canucks look at? Scoring chances for and against. So do the Canucks track Panthers scoring chances then? The obvious inference is that they do.

Harrison Mooney of Pass it to Bulis fame has a take on how everyone "bought low" in the David Booth trade. It’s really good work even if Mr. Mooney somehow finds it in him to defend Dale Tallon’s mental acuity.

GIF BREAK: Yeah, I can see that. Tell it like it is Hammer. (via Keith Ballard).

Iain Macintyre writes about what the Booth acquisition means for Cody Hodgson. Dan Murphy has a similar take over at Rogers Sportsnet.

Bruce Arthur shows Mark Spector how to write an article about the pressure cooker that is the Vancouver hockey scene without relying on drawn out whiny baby metaphors, petty trolling and unbecoming stereotypes about the "toughness" of European skaters. Well done Mr. Arthur.

Finally, Richard Loat pays tribute to Mikael Samuelsson over at CHB, while Pass it to Bulis remembers his top five goals as a Canuck.
