Headshots February 16th


If today’s links post doesn’t get you at least as excited as the Sedins are above, then I’ve failed.

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.

Canucks fans have fallen in love with Cody Hodgson (with good reason), but seem to have forgotten how important Manny Malhotra is on this team. Cam Charron brings some much needed perspective on this.

Greg Wyshynski reminds us that Roberto Luongo could’ve been a Maple Leaf! Thank goodness the league dodged that bullet!

Finally over at the back-hand shelf, our buddy Daniel Wagner discusses the history of professional in Seattle
