Love Em/Hate Em
1. Jordan Schredder
With Ryan Kesler soon to return, it looks like we can start making Canucks line-ups that feature both Kesler and Jordan Schroeder. The kid has looked good and he’s earned AV’s trust, getting time on the first powerplay unit with the Sedins.
Schroeder has been battling for pucks with tenacity, which goes a long way towards overcoming his size. His work ethic off the puck will be what keeps him in this league.
2. Mr. Higgins
After a horrible start to the season, Chris Higgins now has goals in two straight games and points in three straight.
It’s just another example of how dangerous the Canucks can be when all elements are hot.
3. Bobby Lu on After Hours
Roberto Luongo was the guest on after hours and once again displayed what has to be the most based attitude in the NHL. It’s really amazing how he’s seemingly been on a spiritual journey that resulted in him being re-born as the zen strombone (except Scott Oake still doesn’t know that…).
Who else would open up about his bowel movements on national tv in the midst of being on the trade block?
Gonna miss you buddy. Also, you should start tweeting from the bench.
1. Tough Line-up Decisions
Who comes out of the line-up? Who sees their ice-time cut significantly?
I’ve missed you, #1stplaceproblems.
2. Poor Macy
You really hate to see anyone get hit in the face, especially someone who has the physical structure of Taylor Swift.
Poor lil guy.
3. A Fallow Period
Right as the Canucks are hot, they have a lot of time off.
They don’t play again until Tuesday against Minnesota and after that next is Friday against Dallas.
As Van Halen once said, you miss the beat, you lose the rhythm.
