The smirk has been wiped from their faces.

The Canucks will continue to move the puck and draw defenders/forecheckers out of position while absorbing the splashy hits to make the plays

Don't want to upset the hockey gods so I'll stick with my pattern and make no prediction. Just going to enjoy the game.

Keep Reaves on the bench. Keep Marchessault off social media.

Vegans make cucking sounds.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Because of the Hockey Diversity Alliance request and being like the NBA? I would hope the NHL doesn't cave to such things.

The NHL could say:

"We are committed to improving diversity within hockey, and we believe that programs like the Hockey Diversity Alliance are important to achieving our goal in bringing the greatest game on earth to as many people as possible without respect to race, gender, or sexual orientation. We feel that playing games is the way to do this."

I might say: "There is no difference between your request to me to shut down my business to show support for your cause (with an implied, "or else we will say your don't care about racism which makes you a racist") and a hypothetical request to dance naked in the street to show support for your cause. There is no connection between playing NHL games and any particular message, and we will not have words put into our mouths by the fact that we do not accede to your requests."

Where are you getting this. NHL.com reads like they support the protests but games scheduled will play.
The only HW the Canucks need

Friedman and others have been hinting at it. No idea why there is no official announcement yet.

Don't know how to properly link the tweet to a post, if someone could show me that would be great, but here it is. Sounds like we were the driving force behind this.

Your 4th option left to right is quote. Hit that and carefully post your copied tweet between them.

We? You mean Canucks players? Canucks management?

Here's what Kane is quoted as saying: ""We strongly feel [canceling games] sends a clear message that human rights take priority over sports."

You can connect any message to any not-naturally-connected act and have it mean something. So what? You could also just say what you mean.

Moreover, there a LOT of things that take priority over sports, but we don't stop participating in those lower value things, do we? My children take priority over sport, doesn't mean I don't tell them to stop bugging me while I'm watching the Canucks.

And what's Kane say about the NBA's relationship with China and what that says about the priorities of sport v. human rights....

I don't have a problem with this whatsoever. Word is Canucks might've been one of the driving forces in the postponement. Not sure if true but if it is it makes me proud. Could it be due to the heavy US contingent on the team?

Politics aside, from a hockey standpoint this might be a good thing for your Nucks. That is unless they impose a second back-to-back into this series but I think the extra couple of days rest could be a good thing to heal those shot-blocking bruises, and perhaps a game less of the scary bottom pairing together with Myers a day or two closer. Not to mention the mental rest for Marky. Didn't like the prospect of heading into the back-to-back with virtually no 2 day rests from the last one and since the start of this whole thing.
