Canucks and Beyond

Petty Disputes & Goalie Aggravations

A mild disagreement.  As a Wings fan, Kukla is convinced this cover for the latest edition of The Hockey News looks great:


But I’ve proposed what I think is a reasonable, much more interesting alternative for a future editions.  Perhaps THN will be able to bank it for later…


Looks like a bestselling edition to me! smile

Childish, but what the hell.  It’s a slow news day, and being outnumbered by Detroit fans around here, I figure someone needs to counter the propaganda.

Besides, it’s better than thinking too much about that Canucks game in St Louis last night

Speaking of which, it appears that signing Curtis Sanford last summer didn’t go far enough—apparently the Canucks need to buy up every damn goalie that ever plays for that team; they ALL seem to hold some sort of secret voodoo powers.

And next up are the Chicago Blackhawks, who will arrive at GM Place on Sunday with their own good news goalie:

‘‘He looked so comfortable, so confident,’’ goaltender coach Stephane Waite said of Khabibulin’s last two outings. ‘‘He’s found his comfort zone.’‘

Oh, great.

(*but on the bright side, at least I can start drinking again...)

In addition to writing Canucks & Beyond and helping manage Kukla's Korner, Alanah was one of the founders and co-hosts of The Crazy Canucks Podcast. She has contributed pieces to FoxSports.com and the New York Times Slapshot blog, as well as other stray destinations in cyberspace.
