A Bit of Squid - May 12th

Two years in a row.  The Canucks were eliminated by the Blackhawks two years in a row.  In Game 6 of the 2nd round of the series.  Seriously, this is just annoying, if you really think about it enough.   The idea this year was to right the wrongs of last year's series, but alas it did not work.  So, now the Canucks are out of the playoffs.  Season over.  Of course, there are a few things we can be proud of about this season, such as 30 regular season wins at home, 11 3rd-period comeback wins, and Henrik Sedin winning the Art Ross trophy and being nominated for a couple MVP awards.  We cannot forget that this has still been a pretty good season.  It's just too bad it had to end like this again....

As for off-season coverage, I will continue to post Squid each morning for the rest of the playoffs, covering how the rest of the teams are doing on their quest for the Stanley Cup (probably won't be as many links, though).  I will also keep tabs on the draft and free agency.  Once all these fun activities dwindle down, I'll take a break from the big daily posts over July and August and just post occasional links over those summer months.

Links after the jump.

Throw any more links you find in the comments.  I'll be in class almost all day and evening, but I'll update when I can.
