Henrik and Daniel are the most charitable people in the NHL right now. The Canucks foundation which I try to donate to whenever I can (not much but I try) does wonderful things for BC kids. They are good people.

He does deserve some credit for his commitment to the craft. Although his unwillingness to embrace the avatar/ban bet revealed that he has to bend eventually. Unfortunate.

None of this will matter come Thursday morning anyway. Once all the empty beer bottles have been swept away and the throbbing headaches subsided, we'll be left with nothing.

on the plus side isn't this team pretty locked up for the next few years? I mean I know the "it's always next year" thing sucks to hear but doesn't look like the nucks will bottom out for the next few years.

I'm picking up a sixpack after my last final and am fully expecting to be done with it by the end of the game. It will be glorious.

We're good for next year with only Rome (and perhabs Salo, if he still has it in him) to re-sign. The year after we'll have Malhotra, Higgins, Burrows and Edler (and perhaps Lapierre, he seems a good fit for us). The core is luckily all locked up for like 4 years, which leaves us with less worries, but also less cap space to fill holes. So yeah "we're locked up for next year" goes both ways. If we get swept in the first round this year, we won't have enough cap space to make any drastic changes. Which is why a 1st round exit hurts even more, because it means we're by far not good enough.

This isn't the salty Revenant I know. What's happened? Stockholm Syndrome?

Canucks' potential problem for next year will be some growing frustration/indifference.

Red_Man, Vigneault will probably return. Schneider will be traded. Gillis needs to not fuck that one up like he did with Hodgson.

I wonder if this means Lou plays for Canada at the WC.... also what happens with the roster? Stays relatively the same? You said there's not enough heart and soul guys, do they keep the core and strip the rest? It will be very interesting anyways.

Biggest game in years for the Blues later tonight . Not a must win, but they need to get one in SJ and it would be nice to get that out of the way tonight.

Obviously, Elliott is starting after The Genius ran over Halak.

Well, at least we're not Toronto.

You're right.

While the Leafs are losers since '67, the Canucks are losers for life.

My team hasn't made the playoffs in eight years and just finished 26th in the NHL. But at least they won a Cup in a 6-team league two dozen years before I was born.
