In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I just saw a bunch of young guys running out of the condo with their hockey sticks...lol. Cute. They're pretty lucky, the bridge is just down the street. Made me realize how Canadian hockey is and such a big part of our culture. Big city or small, let there be road hockey!

Vancouver Canucks stars play road hockey


Locked-out Vancouver Canucks stars Ryan Kesler and Kevin Bieksa staged a spontaneous road hockey game in downtown Vancouver Wednesday, attracting hundreds of fans who caught wind of the event on social media.

“Road hockey today at 3:30 [p.m. PT] at the basketball court under the Cambie Street Bridge. Bieksa isn’t ready,” Kesler tweeted earlier in the day.

Bieksa replied in a tweet, saying, “Bring your sticks, Vancouver, and your bad attitudes.”

Hundreds of fans picked up on the invitation and a few dozen got into a bit of pickup play with their heroes. The Canucks had a good time, too.

“This is something we wanted to do, to have some fun,” said Bieksa during a break in the action. “Every time we’ve been talking hockey lately it’s been serious … We’re just going back to our roots with a fun road hockey game in the pouring rain.”

Kesler, who’s still healing from shoulder surgery, stepped in as the referee.

“The only way I’m going to hurt myself is if I throw my hand up too fast for a penalty. So hopefully it’s a good clean game out there today.” Kesler said.

The small crowd also was treated before the game to a rendition of O, Canada by singer Mark Donnelly who was also on hand and who belts out the anthem before most Canucks home games — when NHL hockey is actually played there.

The 70-day NHL lockout continued Wednesday with some growing optimism there might be some movement in negotiations.

The players’ association and the league are reported to have cleared their schedules for the next few days to allow talks to continue.



Sounds like it was awesome!

^^ Yeah. Some kid had a Flames jersey on too.

Another one had a "fight" with Bieksa, it was cute.

It was good, I wasn't gonna stop on my way home but I'm glad I did. Took a few pictures too.

Ya, Cabbie said the feature will be on SportsCentre Fri Dec 14th. I believe he and the show set this whole thing up.

Pretty cool, apparently 300+ people there to watch.

Always will love and support Cody Hodgson, great player, great potential great character, and I don't care about those stupid rumours about the trade. And we lost him, what a dissapointment. Love you COHO, forever a canuck in my heart!

One day Luongo will raise Lord Stanley's cup.
And show all those haters that he is the amazing goalie that he is.
No matter what jersey he wears, I will always be cheering for Luongo.

Forever Believe.

No love for Jason Garrison? He was in that CBC video next to Bieksa wasn't he?

Sweet, I checked The Province this morning and my picture made page 2. I only had my iPhone with me so I couldn't take any pictures with the above quality, so I'm pretty stoked that my picture (the only fan one from what I can see) made the print edition.

Cabbie also RT it last night.

(hope it doesn't post too big in here)
