Gillis_skates_medium -So Mike Gillis participated in the Canucks' skate prior to the Kings game. I think he's gearing up to play 3rd line center if all else fails. More pictures from yesterday including the pic on the left found at

-A recent Canucks trip to the Children's Hospital was cancelled, so the Canucks made a DVD for them instead. Here is some video footage of that event. Good stuff.

-Goodbye monkey, hello Kristin Reid! Wellwood changed the blades on his sticks before last night's game.

-I thought I had read somewhere that Rick Rypien had injured his hand. Now, nobody on the Canucks is saying what his injury is. Alain Vigneault is saying he is day-to-day. He is doubtful for tomorrow's game against the Coilers.

-Seen on Twitter:

"This is the first bright spot since Luc's death," said Luc Bourdon's mother after carrying the Olympic Torch earlier today!    -vancan19

Keep your head up, Mrs. Bourdon. We Canucks fans will never forget Luc and always remember you, your family and Luc in our hearts. Hang in there.
