Headshots March 15th


Booth: "When I lift weights, I like to wear my sweet, sweet gloves!
It’s SO GOOD when doing curls. Dude, don’t you do that too?"
Kesler: "Buds, you are so weird. Now let me get back to playing Air Standup Bass."

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.

Our friend, Matt The Mascot, gives us his latest installment of his (Fake) Interviews with NHL Players. Today we see Matt "interviewing" Canucks defenceman Kevin Bieksa.

Now, just in case you want to compare Matt’s interview with a real Kevin Bieksa interview, although I don’t know why you’d bother… Bieksa was on with Scott Rintoul and Jason Botchford of the Team 1040 today. You can listen to the entire interview here.

Continuing our Bieksa-themed Headshots, since he’s my favourite Canucks interviewee, Juice had some interesting comments post-game yesterday, where he called out the lack of atmosphere in Rogers Arena. From the Legion of Blog, steveinthekt delivers us a letter from a season ticket holder regarding the state of affairs in the stands. Uh, take THAT, Bieska.

PORTRAIT BREAK! From redditer eager_badger, he’s painted the following portrait of Canucks captain Henrik Sedin.

 

Jason Botchford reports that Alain Vigneault knows that the onus is on his supposed leadership core, namely the Sedins, to get out of this slump. He also knows that those same players are not exactly letting their play do the leading. It looks like AV is doing some good ol’ fashioned coaching. If it isn’t clear to you by now that this lack of performance falls squarely on the players, then nothing with convince you.

And finally, Ed Willis with an interesting topic for debate amongst Canucks faithful – Are Canucks Fans Too Complacent? In the wake of the solemn atmosphere at Rogers Arena last night during the Canucks defensive meltdown, Willes wonders if Canucks fans are just as bored as the team appears to be lately.
