In case there is ANY confusion about this, Pass it to Bulis broke the news late last night to the Vancouver market that Daniel Sedin experienced headaches following his Monday skate. That information came from Danny’s father Tommy in an interview with Swedish newspaper Allehanda and Jon Haggqvist. Once again, it was PiTB that broke the story.

A great post from Iain MacIntyre on the Canucks’ capabilities without Daniel Sedin. Included is this quote from Chris Higgins, "If one player drastically alters things for your team, you probably don’t have enough depth to win anyway." The Canucks know that if they’re gonna to succeed in the short term, they’ll have to do it without Daniel. They’re prepared.

There is a new documentary set to release called "Effigy, BC", chronicling the 2011 Stanley Cup riot. You can watch the trailer online here.

Alex Burrows sat down with Gord McIntyre for a little Q&A, talking post-playoff letdown, fatherhood and prepping for this year’s run.

SLAM! Sports/QMI hosted a chat today, asking hockey fans to tell them why they hate the Canucks. Lots of responses about the Canucks being whiny bitches and classless and such. One person said the reason he hates the Canucks is because they change their uniforms and colours too often. Embrace the hate, folks. #embracethehate
