A Bit Of I Hate Mondays

YOUR CANUCKS NEWS

  • Sami Salo is just about ready to begin skating again after suffering no setbacks with his Achilles tendon in any of his workouts at the gym. Sami is excited, management is going to have to clear cap space. (The Province)
  • Gordon McIntyre of the Province is confused why Alain Vigneault gave Aaron Rome more ice time (including PP ice time) than Keith Ballard. Good question. I thought Ballard looked pretty good last night and is steadily improving.
  • "Dude, I can see your package." There was a poem about the green men that never made the final cut for Luongo's poetry segment. Beyond that line the poem remains a mystery.

  • Bill Guerin announced today that he is retiring after 18 NHL seasons. (TSN) What a feisty, skilled and successful player. 2 Stanley Cup wins (Pittsburgh and New Jersey).

  • The NHL's salary cap could rise by $3 million if the players exercise their 5% inflator right. (Globe and Mail).
  • HBO cameramen will be following the Penguins and Capitals around as a

4-part documentary will air starting December 15 in preparation for the January 1st Winter Classic. (The Star.com)
  • Sidney Crosby. 23 goals and 46 points in 28 games so far. Check out his game log. Yeesh, I don't like him, but I respect what he is doing.
  • Praise for Carey Price in the Montreal Gazette. Call me negative, but I'm still wondering if the wheels are going to fall off on this kid at some point this season. Mad props to BC's own though.
  • Goaltending issues in Tampa Bay (TampaBay.com). Gee, who didn't see that coming?
  • Brad Richards to the Rangers trade rumor heating up. (NBC Sports)
  • I have always been a fan of Ottawa's Chris Kelly. He is a PK master. But when he scores a hatty against the Rangers I like him even more:
  • MISC

    I'm stealing this video idea from St. Louis Game Time. Yes, dogs are way f*cking better than cats:
