Morning, everyone. I'm back and looking sharper than ever. These new glasses are fantastic and this $27 hair cut is proving to be worth it. Anyways, the Canucks won again all thanks to the brilliance of head coach Alain Vigneault, or something like that? I don't know, I haven't been around lately. Anyways, lets get at it!
>> Good news: Cory Schneider feels on top of his game. Better news: Dale Weise is likely out long term with a shoulder injury. Bad news: This gives Weise plenty of time to get reacquainted with twitter. Hide your 18 year old daughters and friends everyone. Ben Kuzma with the story.
>> Ed Willies one time bought me a milk shake and then slapped it out of my hands before I could take a sip. It was a cruel and desperate move. Speaking of desperate (I don't know what this has to do with desperation) Willies gives the Canucks coaching staff credit.
>> J Bowman from the Legion of Blog has a good bit on the continued double standard of NHL discipline.
>> The Van Provies is a collection of awesome. This one is a collection of OK. Mailing it in Kuz? Caman, baby. You're better than that.
Lastly from the Province it's Jason Botchford, a little taste of shap and quite possibly the coining of a new and under used term in Lozenge Slurpers.
This is it from the Canucks this morning. I'll update this as the day goes on and some more Canucks stuff trickles through. Sorry, gang. Until then lets have a look at what those other assholes are up to.
The Other Guys:
>> Hey, Mike Ribeiro wants to remain a Washington Capital. Good. Lets not talk about him coming to Vancouver and moving a Selke award winning center to the wing ever again, ok?
>> Speaking of the Capitals, this headline feels like it's from 09-10, but Alex Ovechkin was named the NHL's first start of the week.
>> Alexi Kovalev retired over the weekend, or something like that. Anyways, he says that the Florida Panthers pushed him into retiring.
>> Jay Feaster can eat an entire bucket of KFC. Not surprising, neither is the fact that he e-mailed the 29 GM's from around the league saying that Cory Sarich and Anton Babchuk are available. You know, if I was gearing up for a cup run in 2006 these two would be perfect.
That's it for today for them too. Cripes, what a slow news day. I'm sure it will pick up. Fuck, I hope it does. Anyways, that's all from me today you guys. Have a good one, enjoy the sunshine and don't fuck around with the chickenpox. Them shits is scary!
Thanks for reading.
