Canucks and Beyond

The Vancouver Canucks placed forward Jeff Cowan on waivers on Saturday, while the club lost defenceman Nathan McIver to the Anaheim Ducks via the waiver wire as well.
Not really surprising moves, but the Legend of Jeff Cowan will be missed (not too many NHL players have inspired women to throw their lingerie on the ice). And courtesy of HockeyFights.com, here’s a final fight from Nathan McIver in the Calgary game a few nights ago.
Mike Boone at Habs Inside/Out posted this over the weekend:
If Mats Sundin plays hockey this season it will be as a member of the Montreal Canadiens.
Because it makes sense. And Sundin is a sensible guy from Sweden, a sensible social democracy where people drive Volvos and go to Ingmar Bergman movies and learn to play smart hockey.
Spare me. Ingmar Bergman movies are the answer to the Jeopardy question, “What is the most drab and depressing thing you can think of?”
Sources tell TSN that Vancouver Canucks forward Jeff Cowan has been suspended one game for his hit to the head on Detroit’s Derek Meech.
The incident occurred in the first period of the Canucks victory over the Red Wings on Saturday night.
I was watching this game in a bar (shocking, I know) and didn’t actually see the hit in question. Was a suspension warranted? Looking for video…
Update 8:00pm PT: I should note that Cowan was quoted on Sportsnet television last night stating that he himself felt his hit was too high when he looked at it, and took responsibility for that.
