Aw c'mon. We all know that goalies have latent masochistic tendencies. In a darkly kinky sorta way, Cujo probably enjoyed getting run out of St. Louis by Iron Mike.

Joseph's just trying to rekindle the flame of that doomed romance . . .

Well, now that Luongo has let in his two bad goals for 2008, we can all breathe a little easier. ;) Impressive that Luongo could have a Marc-Andre Fleury-style meltdown - probably the two worst goals I've seen him give up as a 'Nuck - and yet the team still got two points. Tenacity and skill beat lu...

Holy undeserved win, Batman! Renney and the Rags must just be scratching their heads over how they let a game that they pretty much dominated get away from them. The score was no indication of the flow of play tonight. Only Louie and Kessler really brought their A game. That marks the second straigh...

I can't see that sort of salary working in Calgary, given what has been committed to Iginla already (and which is thoroughly deserved in light of his numbers this season). It'll lead to too much of a tail-off in depth elsewhere on that squad. I think that all teams can afford one highly paid star un...

I don't think anyone can say Edler is underappreciated. The guy will likely receive Calder consideration. With the whole offer sheet imbroglio, I don't think anyone can say Kessler is underappreciated either. He's just finally living up to the financial appreciation the Club's shown him. Pyatt, on t...

Kinda funny that the tired team would sleepwalk through the first two periods and then turn it on in the third. Usually it goes the other way. Just another day at the office for Roberto (Rhymes with "Bet against him and you lose your shirt-o") Luongo. His stops with traffic in front of him (and drap...

Brutal tough month and the Canucks are still in first place. Now that the schedule is geting some what normal hopefully the boys can get some points in the distance of the Avs and Wild. With all the injuries and missing key personal, I think this was a good month! Agreed. The combination of schedul...

The score will, obviously, be 2-1.

I'm just not sure for which team.

Yeah, it's a tall order to overcome the injury bug on the second night of a back-to-back. The Nucks (particularly the defence corp. - ugh, the Miller and Kraiicek goofs on the last two goals were wince inducing) played like a mentally tired team last night, and the absence of Kessler was duly noted....

Actually, that's pretty funny.

What's even funnier, however, is the irony of this being discussed on an internet site where everyone actually knows who Mason Raymond is.

It's kinda funny. I bumped into Linden last night at a function and he mentioned that even he - grizzled veteran that he is - is looking forward like a dumb giggling schoolgirl to playing against Sid the Kid tonight. Honestly, I haven't seen or heard this much buzz about a single player coming to to...

The last leap . . .

The only man to have sustained more injuries over his lifetime than Canuck's defenceman Sami Salo died today at the age of 69. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20071130.wknievel1130/BNStory/International/home I'll always remember the debacle that was the Snake River Canyon jump on ...

A Hyde and Jekyll game from the 'Nucks. After being absolutely rag-dolled like a two dollar hooker at a Duke lacrosse team party during the first period, the Nucks stood tall and took advantage of the Ducks self-destruction in the second. The Ducks are clearly their own worst enemy when it comes to ...

No reason to boo the guy. He sacrificed his spine to innumerable cross-checks for this team And also . . . he landed us Roberto. So, what's not to like?
