Parents beware, it’s a trap!

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.

Last night, Cody Hodgson’s agent called out Pass it to Bulis’ Daniel Wagner, who responded today. Seriously, the whole "Bloggers versus the world" thing could not have resurfaced at a more opportune moment!

Cam Charron takes a look at the Blackhawks season this campaign, versus last campaign. He also points out that, in the past eight meetings between these two teams, the Canucks have absolutely dominated from a possession standpoint. 

Ben Kuzma has a good take on what Cory Schneider’s start tonight against the Blackhawks means for the Canucks larger goaltending strategy.

Video Break: Cool, 45 second tribute video to THE FRANCHISE:

Gordon Macintyre has been on an absolute tear the last ten days, and that continued today with his take on Dave Bolland. Check out this lede: "Dave Bolland backed down like a gir… no, we can’t stoop to the misogynist depths some players and other meatheads do when calling the Sedin twins the sisters." HEAT.

Not that you need any reasons to get excited about a Canucks – Blackhawks tilt, but our buddy The Stanchion walks you through 10 reasons to get double secret super excited about tonight’s match. 

 Finally, when asked about whether or not the Bruins or the Blackhawks are the Canucks biggest rival, Henrik Sedin today gave a deadpan answer, picking "San Jose" as the Canucks biggest rival. He also makes a nice joke about the endless number of rivals the Canucks seem to have.
