A final word on Raffi Torres from Mark Spector

Say what you want - as long as the National Hockey League is fine with that check, then Torres is doing his job to a tee. Even Quenneville did not rail against Colin Campbell’s work after the morning skate Tuesday.

“Justice would have been served if he got a major and a game,” Quenneville said. “That would have been the way to deal with it. Supplemental discipline? I’ll let other people deal with that.”

Also over at, some discussion on the coaching, and a few other topics. Video below:

Finally, some thoughts from Henrik Sedin this morning:

“This franchise hasn’t done much in the last 40 years. I think we’re still pretty down to earth. We want to go further than this.

“It’s really early yet. We haven’t thought past this series. We know, if we move on, we’re going to face a really, really tough opponent.

“This is the year we feel we have the best chance in a long time. But it doesn’t mean we’re going to go all the way.”

Clearly the Canucks aren’t looking past Chicago, but it seems like hockey fans are… Here’s the poll we put up earlier today, in case you haven’t weighed in.
