One NHLer who isn’t sweating a lockout? Andrew Ebbett, because he’s smartly poised to take home 300k even if he spends the entire season with the Canucks’ AHL affiliate the Chicago Wolves.

According to eliteprospects.com, Jannik Hansen may end up with the Rødovre Mighty Bulls of the Danish first league if the lockout extends into October.

Jan Bulis was only recently informed of the existence of Pass it to Bulis. No word on whether or not anyone has told Artem Chubarov about me yet!

Several Canucks players are still in Vancouver, and continue to skate together. However, they have turned their jerseys inside out:

They’re also getting punk’d by "the man."

Francois Allaire, a close friend of Roberto Luongo’s, just quit his post as Toronto Maple Leafs goaltending coach. Could this impact Luongo’s willingness to accept a trade to the centre of the universe?

    Man, I miss Chubarov. He was an awesome defensive forward! Whatever happened to him? He went to Russia because of the last lockout and never came back, right? I heard that he still owns a car in Vancouver… weird if its true. After the lockout he should come back to get his car and play on our PK and fourth line!
