Headshots December 2nd

The Green Men brought the sweet, sexy heat to their penalty box antics las night. (via taylorpyatt.)

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 Thom at thom.drance@gmail.com.

The Nation Network’s own Cam Charron, courtesy his cushy new gig at the Province’s Legion of Blog, tells John Garrett that he’s completely wrong. Not that this is a revelation, but Cam gives you proof on Garrett’s claim that the Predators were opportunistic in their win over the Canucks last night.

Also at the Province’s Legion of Blog, Jordan Bowman provides us a guide to the correct way for goalies to flop on their bellies. Examples of acceptable situations for goalies include: hanging out with alligators and dodging crop dusters with Cary Grant in "North by Northwest".

BARN FIGHT!!!! Yeah, that’s right! Brian Burke challenged Kevin Lowe to a fight in a BARN. Via Backhand Shelf, in an interview with Sophia Jurksztowicz, Brian Burke was incredibly candid about his relationship with Kevin Lowe, following Lowe’s offer sheet submission for Dustin Penner. The interview will be shown in its entirely on The Score and thescore.com next week. Until then, go watch the excerpt clip. It’s genius.

Funny Image Break: Courtesy the SI Image Vault (@si_vault), here’s Ryan Kesler parked precariously on top of the Predators’ net.


Leave it our good friends at Pass It To Bulis to take a singular incident, like Kesler climbing over the net, and write an entire post about it. And then make a perfectly radical image-filled meme out of it. This is great stuff here.

It’s one of my favourite post-Canucks game features. It’s the Van Provies Nightly Awards from Jason Botchford. Given the truly bizarre nature of the events that unfolded last night, today’s edition is something else.

And finally… Not that we like to give any props to anything related to the Oilers, but they have a BC kid who’s kind of a big deal right now. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is having a REDONK year right now and is setting a new bar for rookies. (via Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal). RNH is fourth in scoring, kids. Not for rookies. In the NHL overall. That’s nuts.
