Headshots January 18th

Luongo took a puck off his mask last night. Now that, my friends, is a head-shot.

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.

Harrison Mooney discusses how the All-Star Game captains were selected with the Canucks in mind. It’s the Canucks league, 29 other teams just play in it.

Over at the Legion of Blog, SteveintheKT has a humorous write up on the Bruins White House visit, and its ramifications on National Security.

Gordon Macintyre summarizes Mike Gillis’ latest Team 1040 appearance in which Gillis spoke about Kesler "trying too hard" and Luongo’s struggles in the skills competition.

GIF BREAK: Via TrevorLinden. Ah yes, it’s all coming into focus now. Kesler is a try-hard. Stop trying so hard, you big try-hard.

Yesterday, Greg Wyshynski summed up the inane Kesler hand-wringing in the Vancouver market and linked to flipping everybody! This post made me wish I hadn’t totally ignored this non-story. *sigh*

From Fort Nucks, the Canucks clean up rather well.

Finally, LA Kings blog the Royal Half, recaps last night’s game and solves the mystery of who achieved excellence in trolling by bringing the Aunt Jemima’s to the game. The man pictures at the bottom of this post is a credit to our much loathed fan-base.
