Headshots November 29th

Radioactive ginger sports-stars are decimating the downtown core.

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.

As you can see from the picture above, Gingerzilla’s are dominating Vancouver’s sports scene. Run. Run for your lives! Jordan Clarke has more.

It’s unclear whether or not the Canucks have a full blown goaltending controversy on their hands, but they definitely have a full blown controversy brewing about whether or not this is a goaltending controversy. One might say they have a goaltending controversy, controversy. Omar Rawji pulls out his dictionary and argues that yes, in fact, the team does have a goalie controversy. Harrison Mooney on the other hand pulls out his absurdist thesaurus and says that, in fact, the team has a non-troversy. Meanwhile Rob the Hockey Guy points out who the real winner in all of this is: the media.

Alex Burrows is going to tough it out tonight, so Mason Raymond will have to wait a little bit longer before making his season debut. Aaron Rome will also sit tonight. Alain Vigneault continues to roll with the exact same lineup that has carried the Canucks on their current four game winning streak, though it’s worth noting that the Canucks have been the better team in only two of those four games.

Our man The Stanchion pulled out some quality work for the #EmbracetheHate campaign today when he defended the game 7 riot.

Photo Break: Sometimes, google is unintentionally hilarious. Search "Naslund Stojanov" and it will recommend this:

Add a space after Stojanov, and it will change its recommendation to this:


Cam Charron finally ran out of numbers (stick-tap to @jessespector for that joke).

Finally, the Canucks announced that they will host their annual super-skill competition on January 22nd. You can buy tickets starting this Saturday, if you have kids or for some other reason (maybe you hit your head recently) want to go.
