Put your hands up in the air, and waive em like your tied for a top ten spot!!!!
For Immediate Release: Vancouver Canucks GM Press Flyer Oct 28th 2016
Gm and fellow fan of the Vancouver Canucks, Primal Optimist, sat down today and gave a short presser in response to questions that his team can continue this momentum beyond the first ten games. Here is what he had to say.
"We are pleased to see the team doing nicely, and I don't think it is a fluke, no. Our standout of the month has got to be Charlie Coyle, but that doesn't take anything away from a dozen other top end contributors here, and to think Nik Kronwall has been injured this whole time. If you can be in a top ten position without a key guy like Nik, your a decent team. I can't take the credit for that, coming in this summer and evaluating where we were at, where we needed to be and making a few changes so far, I think the credit, if any, is in the changes I didn't make. These guys in the room, its all them. They are within a competitive shot of being a top five team, tied for a top ten spot and frankly to be up there with the likes of some of the GM's at this end of the spectrum, its real fun that is for sure.
I want to instate a short 3 stars of the month idea around our rink and today is as good a day as any to announce the main guys in the running for our first of the year 3stars of October. The short list includes the aforementioned Charlie Coyle along with Travis Hamonic (one goal three assists great plusminus and some earned plm's) Steve Mason (who rang in thus far with a SO win, Regulation Win and an OT loss to go with an early goalie assist), Valterri Filpulla (with a skilled contribution of 3 goals and 2 assists) and Andre Markov (chipping in 4 assists including two on special teams). Anyone can explode on the ice this weekend, and the final 3 Stars won't be announced until November, but we are really excited about our club going forward and can't wait until the so called 20 games in analysis. Thank you and keep your stick on the ice"
