Saturday Links: Canucks Morning Java

Time goes by…so slowly…

Canucks fans and players alike are screaming, “Can we just get going already?”

It seems like Game 4 was an ice age ago but we have almost arrived at Game 5 which goes Sunday. Over the last week, we’ve seen Vancouver go down further and then start the ball rolling on a potential comeback and many people have had many things to say about it.

So below is a compilation of the best (and worst) Canucks related posts and articles and stories and blogs from across the interwebz. Check it.
