Hump days are humpty.

Canucks News

  • As Sean noted below, Gillis broke his own rule with Doan and offered the 35 year old a multi-year deal. [Province]
  • Mike Gillis caught a tuna. David Booth quickly appeared and shot it in the face anyway. [Sportsnet]
  • One of the original eight rioters pleads guilty. Then jumps in a car with "Go Canucks Go" on it and sped away. [Province]
  • ...and just in case you needed further proof that a vengeful fate awaits Dustin Brown's ACLs, please read on. [PD]
  • Schneider is an unproven asset. [THN]

Everyone Else

  • Scott Parker Part II is up with some fascinating tattoo samples. More interestingly - and something PD noted in a separate post - is how Parker felt about the folks involved in Bertuzzi/Moore hit. Gotta give this up for Parker: he doesn't mince his words. [MHH]
  • In true ginger fashion: BETTER DEAD THAN RED (this involves Nash and the Wings, but it's still better if you stand up and scream that headline first). [The Cannon]
  • Garrison, Luongo and much more in Friedman's final column of the year (and ignore the possibility that one trade issue is VAN asking for Quinton Howden). Go now. [CBC]
  • Scott Stevens is back in hockey. Awesome. [Backhand Shelf]
  • A view from the owner's perspective in the upcoming CBA meltdown. [G&M]
  • Head's up: "mega-deals are tying hands." In related news, breathing is fun. [Sportsnet]
