Headshots April 5th

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.

Over at Pass it to Bulis Harrison Mooney has been obsessively re-litigating the Hodgson trade over the past 24 hours, with a take on Hodgson v. Pahlsson, a take on Gragnani and a third post on Alexander "Bobby Orr" Sulzer. What’s funny to me about re-hashing these trades is that Buffalo fans, against all odds (considering how bad their team and management are), are obscenely optimistic. Canucks fans meanwhile, against similarly long odds, remains as fatalistic as ever…

Seriously people, what is a Nucksiceman? As far as I can tell it’s an "unhinged rant generator" the Vancouver Sun bought off the Bleacher Report when the internet was first invented. 

Meanwhile for a serious take on the Schneider, Luongo take from a serious writer, here’s Ed Willes.

Add another voice to the pro "Luongo should start game one of the playoffs" camp, in Cory Schneider. Wait, what? That was a joke, right? Did he say it while imitating Vigneault?

Byron Bitz has been recalled, and will play in Calgary tonight. Happy for him, it’s really hard not to root for a guy whose been through what Bitz has over the past twenty-four months.

Really enjoyed this bit from Jordan Bowman on how Luongo would be treated if he played for a different club.
