While you could be taking a break from your wage slave duties, the Canucks and Faeries are working hard like any it’s other Monday.
BC Faeries News Update. Some good, some bad.
The Good News is Eddie and Demko are skating. Using their own legs.
The Bad News is... Jake has a broken rib. Out for a month. Won’t be available to make Getz atone for the injury when the Ducks come to the ROG to beaten. Thoroughly.
Coach Green injury update:— Vancouver Canucks (@Canucks) February 18, 2019
Demko - skating on own
Edler - skating on own
Markstrom - maintenance day
Tanev - seeing doctor today
Virtanen - fractured rib, out a month
The ongoing news bad news is that Sven and Sutter are likely spending spring and summer break at the faeries’ long term reserved seating area at the infairymary.
Virt out means that there’s new cutlery on the table.
Hear from the Canucks 3rd highest paid player.
Brisebois’ brush with the ‘bigs’ is over. Going back to east to feast.
The D-Corp is hoping for some Schenn zen. And so are we.

Green was enjoying practice with the media, even if the media were grumpy.
Remember when hockey was a fun kids’ game? Vancouver sports media doesn’t either.
At NM, hockey is always fun! When it’s not fun, it’s fun to talk about it. Just as long as we’re not talking while sober. While sober 1st thoughts can be a vibe-killer, sobering 2nd thoughts are best thought post TDL. Just a few more unworried days before we can call JB on the whine-o-phone.
Speaking of fun. BC Faeries are sponsoring our annual weekly Monday Poll.

In other fun news, our place at the 1st spot at the 2nd spot wild table is still secure - Calgary defeated the desert dogs 5-2 and now the Turtle Derby gets even more turtlurvy. Going to be a fun week for 2nd seedy spotters.
Turtle Derby UPDATE:
By not winning a game in practice earlier, Vancouver has given up precious turtle soup ingredients to the Hawks and Avs. Gourmet standings watchers were not pleased with this sudden change on the palette.
Nucks, Avs and Hawks are now tied on points, but the Nucks have lost ROW superiority.
Possibly a more disturbing twist of the turtle neck, Edmonton is but a one point away from certain bottom lotto favours. Imagine if the Mighty Quinn’s brother is sent to tOil on the rigs of futility with McD. No, don’t. Life under the NHL Turtleitarian regime can be cruel, but there are limits. Right? Right??
More up-to-the-seed moments as they unfold in this sturtling week of tortoisical proportions.
Turtle Derby UPDATE: Feb 19
It just happened. Again. Slipped. Below the desert dogs!!!
Fortunately on Thursday, we can beat the Yotes at their own game of winning games.
Derby Update Feb 20:
The Avs climbed the 2nd seeded summit and knocked Minni into the cheap turtle shells below the Hawks - who won again and are tied in points with the new rocky seed.
This makes tomorrow’s game critical for seediness. And the hyperventilating Western GM watch even more breathless.
