The losing ends today, today the losing ends
Sounds like Lind could make his NHL debut for the Canucks tomorrow.
Will know for sure in the morning

Change has arrived and the kids are coming
TVA trolling, Lind is playing, more dogs, and Canucks Country Rocks!

- This isn’t photoshop; this was on the TVA broadcast yesterday and even though I can’t speak French all that well, I know this is bad. First of all, buts are goals, not butts. That group of Canucks has 23 goals combined this season while the guy they let walk has 25 on his own (most of which were against the Canucks). The salary is also terrifying because most of the Canucks side is locked up next season. Tell me your team is in trouble without telling me your team is in trouble.
- Kole Lind is rumoured to be playing in his first-ever NHL game today. Much like the Mikey DiPietro situation, Kole Lind has waited far too long to make his debut and thankfully it isn’t too late yet. He isn’t going to be a world-burner but he knows the magnitude of what’s going on and he’ll want to impress.
- Lind is a point-per-game player in the AHL this season with 5G/3A; four of those goals came on the man advantage. Lethal. The boy from Saskatchewan had 14 goals in 61 games last season and he’ll likely get better linemates for his first shot. With no Elias Pettersson in the lineup, Lind might get a bigger role even if just for a game.
- Tonight is the night: Canucks Country Rocks! goes live for charity and in case you don’t have e-tickets, there’s still time. The artists have donated their time and the charities the money is being raised for are very worthy. Click here to get your tickets or here to make a donation.
- Remember the dogs yesterday? Well, they didn’t stop coming in. I was bombarded with well over 120 of your dogs and was that ever awesome! As rough as this season has been, the dogs sure made it feel good for one night, and because I want to make sure everyone gets their proper shoutout, here’s the last one:

PowerGlove™ Player of the Game
- Bo Horvat makes his return. Time for Cap to be a difference-maker. That might just mean finishing the game because it can’t look much worse than the game yesterday. Well, it’s the Leafs… maybe it can.
Things I’m looking forward to
- Kole Lind making his NHL debut
- Kole Lind scoring in his NHL debut
- HBO renewing The Newsroom
- A Canucks win
