Pretty Much the Funniest Canucks Jersey Ever.
Daniel Wagner breaks down Mikko Koivu’s thieving of Alex Burrows’ glove during Tuesday night’s game between the Canucks and the Wild. It’s the second glove related incident between the two teams over the past two seasons, so I guess it’s fair to say that there’s no glove lost between these two teams! Heyo! [Pass it to Bulis]
Our boy Jordan Clarke thinks you’re a stone cold dummie if you’re leaving Roberto Luongo off of your hypothetical Team Canada roster for the Sochi Olympics. Obviously Jordan is 100% correct. [Nucksmisconduct]
The Southsiders (a raucous, merry band of Whitecaps supporters) were present at Tuesday night’s Canucks game, and several of their members were given the boot for being too loud and standing in their seats. Over at EightySix Forever, they’re outraged. [EightySix Forever]
A Redditer who was sitting in the same section as the Southsiders had this to say about the experience, "These guys [the Southsiders] have not sat down once, they have the worst seats in the house. They have been singing and chanting non stop and they have made our entire section alive. These are the kind of fans we need more of!" Yep. [/r/Canucks]
Ed Willes has a nice piece on Keith Ballard, with some pretty touching (and textbook) Kevin Bieksa quotes at the end. How good is it to be reading a plethora of Ballard redemption takes this season, by the way? [The Province]
Iain Macintyre on the moribund Northwest Division, in which the Canucks haven’t faced a worthy competitor in years and years. For what it’s worth, I remain pretty confident that the Edmonton Oilers are a playoff team. [Vancouver Sun]

Finally, some exciting news from Bob McKenzie on Ryan Kesler:
No guarantees, of course, because no one knows for sure but sounds like Ryan Kesler could be back within a week or so. Maybe by weekend?
