Looks like someone took the slow train from Philly. That’s code for "check out the slut"

1483490152_l.jpgSo, with 80 games to go, this much is clear: The Canucks still have the inherent ability to drive each and every one of us batshit insane. And, a mere 24 hours later, they have the ability to make us go batshit insane in an entirely different way.

One night they don't show up, the next they do something that, I don't know, could have been helpful in the playoffs a few months ago: scoring four times on the power play. Lost in the giddiness of the first win of the season is that Miller also make Curtis Sanford a starter and the Canucks blew the lead in the third.

Sure, it's been two games, but let's play with some numbers. Bieksa, Kesler and Naslund lead the team with -4 each, somehow Ohlund of all people leads in shots and Luongo is almost in Cloutier-land with a 2.95 GAA.

So, yeah, this team has a lot more work to do if it wants to keep in pace with the "watch us score at will" Colorado Avalanche.

And what more of a delicious team to do it against at this point in the young season then the motherfucking Flyers, the worst team in hockey last year in a town that is woeful in sports-related championships.

Might I suggest a solid outing in net and some offensive explosions from those-who-get-lots-of-money-to-score-goals would be just about ideal come Wednesday evening? Don't let pretty boy Briere, goofy Pylon Hatcher and nancy Biron walk into our house and take two points...make their flight home suck, get the points and make a statement that your worth ethic from Friday night is long long gone.

Thank you muchly.
