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

Must read Remembrance Day take from Danny Gray over at LeafsNation: "When War Wasn’t an Analogy: Remembering Conn Smythe."

Another really touching Remembrance Day take from Replace the KB contestant Steve Shalagan, who remembers his brother, a service member and Canucks fan who passed away a few years ago. Really great stuff.

I wrote about Kesler’s special-teams effectiveness over at Pass it to Bulis today. He’s been a big reason the Canucks special teams differential has exploded over the past few weeks.

Will Alex Burrows return to action tonight, or will Aaron Rome get a shot with the Sedin twins?

GIF BREAK:  Great work from rwZephyr on this Aaron Rome/Wario .gif. Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?

Igor Larionov’s daughter Alyonka interview Pavel Bure on his exclusive "celebrities only" island in Florida. If you enjoy scenes of Pavel Bure disarming would-be assailants with JuJitsu – this interview is for you!

David Booth is "over" the Mike Richards hit that many observers believe he hasn’t been the same since.

Katie Maximick has a post chronicling the Canucks current 6 game road swing in postcards. Cool concept!
