<table width=90% align=center><tr><td><img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/09/bear_head.jpg border=0 align=left vspace=1 hspace=4>The Canucks need to stop watching Michael J Fox movies and start worrying about their hockey. The hockey team this year seems to be either trapped in the past or stuck in their Halloween masks. Let me explain. The Canucks of the 1980's, pre-Linden, were a group of competitors who showed up to the rink each night and gave it

It's a club that sees every member endure a rite of initiation. Invariably, that initiation is one of disappointment.

Fighting Through The Screen - OCT.29.07

In 1996, the network, which then carried NHL action in the US, introduced a glowing puck for its television broadcasts. Called “FoxTrax” by company executives and “What the hell is that?” by everyone else, the puck emitted a blue on-screen glow when it was controlled and a red streak when it was shot faster than 70

A Flames Fan - OCT.10.07

<table width=90% align=center><tr><td><img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/09/bear_head.jpg border=0 align=left vspace=1 hspace=4>It's a strange thing for a Canucks fan to be a Flames fan. I imagine it is akin to being a drug addict dealing with withdrawal. You wake up feeling nauseous, defeated, and disgusted with the way your life has become. You look into the mirror and claw at your eyes so that you may cease to view the troll that looks back at you.

It disguises itself as a sports movie when it’s actually a love story. And it’s forever cursed Western society with, “You had me at ‘hello.’” So imagine my dismay now that I find myself taking a page straight out of Jerry’s handbook. In the film’s opening minutes, Maguire has a vision. Tired of the cut-thro
