Headshots April 18th


It’s cool, folks. We’re good.

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.

With the announcement that Cory Schneider will start Game 4 tonight for the Canucks, Jason Botchford puts a voice to what many of us are thinking… Is the Roberto Luongo era done for the Canucks? Our own Thomas Drance puts his own spin on that question too.

Cam Cole weighs in on the return of Daniel Sedin as he and his brother Henrik are reunited to change script in Twinsel Town. As Cam points out, Daniel’s return can’t come soon enough for the anemic Canucks offense.

Switching gears a bit… Pass It To Bulis gives us some wonderful takes on Kesler somersaulting on the ice. Here are the Six Best Kesler Tumbleweed GIFs. I can’t stop watching them.

VIDEO BREAK! From @TwoFiveandTen (via @PassitToBulis). This Sedin video is completely bizarre. Like, AMAZINGLY bizarre. Like, so bizarre I watched the whole thing twice.

Here’s where I put on my Hockey Dad hat and stand in utter shock and amazement. From the Puck Daddy… A girls’ minor hockey team in Ontario won their game after TWELVE overtimes… then played again 2 hours later. THAT’S INSANE.

And finally… make sure you check out "Hard HItting Analysis", a new blog from our friend Shane (@Socialassassin2). Since Shane doesn’t fashion himself a real blogger, that would make him pretend "pretend media".  Right, Don Taylor? (s/t to Thom for the great line on pretend media)
