imageThe dudes from Nucks Misconduct... they’ve have been there, done that, got the T-shirt… and now they’re selling it.

Pretty impressive. Or, as the cool kids—or Charlie Sheen—would say, #winning. (A percentage of the profits go to Canucks For Kids, so you can even feel good about buying one for all the Joe Thornton fans you know.)

Speaking of KesLord:

“I think possibly he’s misunderstood. He’s very intense and sometimes that can be perceived as disrespectful. But really he’s just so focused that when he gets into one of those moods where he wants to accomplish something, he’ll answer with as short a verbiage as he can. He doesn’t elaborate and it’s not that he has anything against the media or people, it’s just the way he is. Believe me, I get the same. I’ll ask a question he should give me two or three sentences and instead I get three words.”

- Mike Kesler, Ryan’s father

An in-depth article about Kesler and his career can be found here. Also, a photo gallery.

More odds and ends…

“One has to emerge. Even if it’s accidental, one has to emerge.”

—Craig Button: former GM and current NHL Network analyst makes his western conference ‘prediction’. (Another way of putting this: “Two teams will be playing. I’m almost positive one of them will be required to win.” Daring prediction.)

“I am happy to announce that I will be an Islander for the next five years; new building, new contract and new baby. What a great year!!!!!”

—former Canuck Michael Grabner let’s it all out on Twitter

“The anthems are the best part for me, looking around, especially at home. When the crowd starts signing, you see the smiles and all the kids. It’s magical.’‘

—Raffi Torresspeaking Thursday about everything he’s savouring about being back in the playoffs

P.S.Apparently the Canucks have now called up Tanev, Lack, Shirokov, Bolduc and Volpatti.
