Canucks Notes

  • imageCombine TSN’s Darren Dreger and the Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch and what ultimately comes out of the wash is a trade rumor that flips Antoine Vermette and Matias Ohlund.
  • Hate the hockey media? Hire Alex Edler for your next attack.  With a flu-symptom-inspired quarantine, he needs to fly commercial plus get his own $500 a night hotel room upon arrival, but he’s worth it.  Surrounded by reporters in NYC yesterday, the quote from assistant coach Rick Bowness in the Vancouver Sun was “Breathe on them all Alex. Breathe on them all.”
  • The Canucks photographer Jeff Vinnick accompanied the Canucks on their road trip and snapped a bunch of photos of them in New York. There’s a full photo gallery here.
  • Joe Pelletier has been remembering 1994 lately.  And I liked his article, although reading such things when the Canucks are just hours away from a game at MSG strikes me as a bit masochistic. (*Joe even includes the YouTube footage of Bure’s missed penalty shot;  you know, just in case you wanted to relive that fun time again…)

Alanah McGinley has been blogging hockey since 2003 (with a notable gap in time through 2010, kicking it with new baby Lucy while living knee-deep in chaos while reading "parenting for complete idiots" during every spare minute) sharing opinions, rants and not-so-deep thoughts with anyone who will listen.

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.

So that's me. Who the hell are you? smile
