  • Update: Dan Hamhuis talks about his foot injury, and is aiming at returning to the lineup on Tuesday against the Canadiens. (The Province). Shut it, Bean.
  • Update: Rick Rypien returns. (The Province)
  • Update: Cody Hodgson is heating up in Manitoba
  • Bah! Bertuzzi was dead to me a long time ago.
  • I hate the Wings. Always have, always will. Screw you, yoata.
  • I love Buzzard Wings with blue cheese at Red Robin's.
  • Best live Canucks game I ever witnessed was against the Dead Wings in November 2008.
  • This will be a huge test for the Canucks. The Wings are dynamite on the road and the Canucks are killer at home. (see above)
  • Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Lidstrom lead the team with 13 points in 11 games. Niklas Lidstrom. 40 years old. No quit in his body. I can respect that. Todd Bertuzzi is 4th on the team's scoring with 2 goals and 9 points and a +6. Another fossil on the team, Mike Modano, has 2 goals and 3 points and a -5 in 11 games played. I can't stand Modano either.
  • Nooooooooo...
  • "Late July, I was thinking: 'Wait a second, am I done in the National Hockey League?'" Torres admitted. "It's a thought that creeps into you as an athlete. I knew I could still play this game, knew I could still produce, knew I could still contribute. So it was was really humbling that teams didn't come calling. It didn't feel good. The deal might not have been the one I was looking for, but at the end of the day, I wound up on a great team in a great situation." -Vancouver Sun. Loving the Raffi. Are we going to get more out of this guy for a great price than any other team has? Stay tuned.
  • Detroit has won 3 games in a row, allowing only 4 goals in those 3 games. Who's hot for the Wings? In their past 3 wins: Dan Cleary has 1 goal and 4 assists, Pavel Datsyuk has 2 goals and 3 assists, and old fart Niklas Lidstrom has 4 assists. Todd Bertuzzi scored his 9 points in his first 7 games of the season but has been pointless in his last 4 games. Keep it that way, Bert.
  • Alexandre Burrows has 5 shots, no points and a even +/- in his first 2 games since returning from shoulder surgery. It's only a matter of time.....
  • Mikael Samuelsson has 1 assist and 13 shots in his last 6 games. Will a game against his former team bring him puck luck? I say YES
  • Andrew Alberts has 1 assist, is a +3 and has 7 shots on goal in his last 6 games played. Just sayin'.
  • The Canucks are 3-5-1 in their last 9 games at home against Detroit. 
  • Unfortunately, Modano and Lidstrom will be the guests on CBC's After Hours.
  • VIDEEEYO

Like I said before, I was at this game and my god...what a win!

Blast from the past: Bob Probert vs Craig Coxe. Still the best fight I have ever seen:

  • Piss off, Wings! I hate you! Die a slow death! I really want to see the Canucks play the same way they did against the Avalanche and beat these f**kers. This game shall be a real test of us against a Western Conference "power".
