Canucks and Beyond

I'm Starting to Like Mike Gillis...

In today’s Vancouver Province, news which warms my cold, blackened, disappointed Canucks-fan heart:

For a week now, Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault has spent his days at GM Place on the hot seat.

For a couple hours, sometimes more, each day, he’s been brought in to informally defend, dissect and rehash a season most are trying to forget. He’s not done yet.

“It’s still ongoing, it’s going to take even more time,” Canucks GM Mike Gillis said.

Read the whole article. It looks at both sides of whether to keep Vigneault, but is still a beacon of hope if you’re praying for a more-offensively-geared team to return in the future, as I most certainly am.

In other news, all this talk about Hockey-Reference.com player sponsorships entertained me, so I jumped into the pool… except I couldn’t decide which player to sponsor, so I just sponsored the whole, crazy team by taking the Canucks page.

*Feel free to suggest a different slogan. My recent cynicism probably needs tempering… It currently reads:

The Vancouver Canucks: A team best enjoyed if you possess a great deal of patience, a tolerance for disappointment, and a fully-stocked liquor cabinet.
