Things I Didn't Expect This Far

- That Kesler would be leading the team in points (9).
- That Burrows would have as many points (7) as the team's lone 2007-08 All-Star Henrik Sedin.
- That Mitchell would have more points (4) than Demitra (3).
- That Rypien (2) would have more points than Pyatt (1).
- That Raymond & Burrows would be tied with Daniel Sedin for the team lead in SOG (21).
- That Hansen would have more goals (3) than Bernier (2).
- That Vancouver is 7th in the league in goals per game (3.50).
- That Demitra has more TOI than Burrows (16:51 to 15:50).
- That Vancouver is 26th in the league in goals against per game (3.50).
- That Wellwood is 71.4% in winning faceoffs.
- That Vancouver is last in the NW Division.
- That Wellwood and Krog are relevant to the team's success for a few weeks now.
- That Pyatt has more shifts per game than Bernier (19.5 to 19.3).
- That Vancouver would be 25th in the league in PIM's per game (20.1 minutes).
- That it took 4 PP goals to take the Canucks from 29th to 14th in the league on the man advantage.
- That Vancouver would be 28th in the league in shots per game (25.8).
- That, as the Lowetide guy said, the Canucks would retire their fanbase (sweet, free time).
- That I would laugh so hard after Shorty remarked, following Wellwood's goal, "Boy that guy really slows the game down."
- That only Philadelphia has more major penalties (12) than Vancouver (11).
- That Salo got injured so quickly (just kidding, wanted to make sure you were paying attention).
- That if the playoffs started today, Vancouver, Dallas and Anaheim would all be golfing.
- That we'd still be talking about Mats Sundin as if there's a snowballs chance in hell he'll end up in Vancouver.
- That only Ellis and Kiprusoff have worst goals against so far than Luongo (22).
- That I haven't seen Ouellet or Grabner yet.
- That Labarbera has a better save % (.891) than Luongo (.889).
- That I could see this picture and think of this and feel there's a secret marketing angle behind all of this.
