Welcome to this week’s edition of Babych, Please! Today, we’ll pay homage to the greatness of Daniel Sedin, investigate whether Alex Edler and Brian Elliott are secretly the same person, and take a look at all the actual people the Canucks signed this past week.
Read past the jump!
- Daniel Sedin will play his 1000th game on
Sunday, and to celebrate this, here is perhaps the greatest off-ice, sans-Henrik, weird, and underappreciated moment of
Daniel Sedin’s career. He’s not mad, he’s just disappointed. If anyone knows the context for this, please don’t enlighten me.
- For real though, the Canucks posted a video of Daniel’s first goal. Trent Klatt and Mattias Ohlund forever.
- And the gallery of Daniel Sedin through the years is worth looking at, mostly for this:
Dan Hamhuis’ injury is a blow to the Canucks
because the team will now have to play without one of their best blueliners. They will also be without their best ‘Dad who is hesitant about video games
but doesn’t want to seem old fashioned, so he’ll give them a shot’? Look at
that form. (via canucks.com)
- When the team posted the photo gallery from the season ticket member signing event, they meant that season ticket members were literally being signed by the Canucks.
- Meanwhile, Alex Burrows seems to have made yet another enemy:
The question on everyone’s mind: is Alex Edler
actually Brian Elliott? Sportsnet certainly thinks so.
- Have they ever been photographed together? Surprisingly, yes!
- Case closed. Brian Elliott is not Alex Edler’s secret alter-ego.
- There are so many ways to thank your defense partner for helping you out, but nothing says “Thanks for turning my -39 into a +2” or “Thanks for making sure I get paid this summer” quite like the huddle cuddle. Aww! (gifs via jordanschroeders)
- Shoutout to whoever noticed this adorable Instagram post from Bo Horvat’s girlfriend. Way to out-do every snapchat ever, Bo. Aww x2.
- And finally, Kevin Bieksa offering Eddie Lack’s mask to an enthused crowd, and Eddie Lack offering Kevin Bieksa to a concerned and hesitant crowd.
