Canucks and Beyond
Entries with the tag: alexander edler
The Canucks end a 4 night vacation to return to action Tuesday, healthy, practiced and ready to stomp the Islanders…
Or not. After all, this is the Canucks we’re talking about:

First, the team has recalled Alexander Edler from the Manitoba Moose.
Speaking of the Moose, Cory Schneider didn’t have a great opening game to his professional career over the weekend, but still managed put a good light on it:
“It takes a lot to win at this level,” said Schneider. “The guys played great in the third period and kind of dug us out of the hole I helped put us in. If we play like that for three periods, we’ll be pretty good this year.”
See? He already sounds like a pro: “Not my best effort…blah blah blah… need to play 60 minutes… blah blah blah…”
