Are the Canucks about to put the mediocre October behind them after that colossal win over the Crapitals? Well, the month of November starts with a 6-game road trip, including 2 back-to-back match ups in that span. Calgary, then the Wild and Blues to start with. And you know who is up after that....What better time to go on a winning streak? These teams are beatable, and should be beaten given the Canucks' better depth on all fronts.

MISC

-Alex Tanguay has 17 goals, 54 points and is a +12 in 56 career games against the Canucks.

-Daniel Sedin has 22 goals, 64 points and is a +19 in 62 career games against the Flames. That's more impressive than his brother.

-Luongo is 20-10-1 lifetime vs Calgary, with a 2.64 GAA and .917 save %.

-Kiprusoff is a 20-21-0 lifetime against Van with a 3.24 GAA and .887 save %.

-Laughable: Olli Jokinen has only 6 assists and is a -15 in 24 career games against the Canucks.

-Kesler and Hank sound of on Cherry's "Canucks are whiny, etc" comments on Coach's Corner on Saturday:

Asked if the whining reputation was an old one, and not based on last year's 117-point season, Kesler replied: "You should ask Don. Apparently he's the expert. Yeah, talk to Don about that one. Big Don..."

More on that at the Sun.

-Aaron Rome is close to returning. Very close. He may (more like: most likely will) replace Sulzer or Ballard on this trip. Yeah, Ballard, who seems to be struggling a bit right now where Sulzer isn't.

-Dale Weise on Maxim Lapierre:

"I’m a big Montreal Canadien fan, so I’d seen him play on TV and stuff and I’d heard his reputation," Canuck linemate Dale Weise said. "But I didn’t know what kind of player he was. He’s not your typical fourth-line player. He’s got some big-league skill. He can skate and play and I’m learning a lot from him."

A great story on Lappy at the Sun.

What the hell is up with the title of the post? Well...
