Truth be told, I just woke up from a New Year's Eve hangover that makes what they went through in look like a pleasing spa package. Things have been rough, cat's tongue rough, but from what I'm hearing it hasn't been half as bad for this sunny side upper as our boy Alex Burrows. Burrows vs. Auger, B
  2. The Cup certainly has been through a lot. I also read a while back that Derek Meech of the Detroit Red Wings showered with it when he won it. To each their own I guess...

Gillis was spotted working out with the team at Friday's morning skate, his 6-foot-1, 195-pound frame powering down the ice like a snowmobile. MG seemed quite comfortable in his role as GM w

In the spirit of this code, I've been challenged by a fellow optimist to take on the curious case of Kyle Wellwood. Oh boy. This is akin to playing minesweeper on expert. There are red flags everywhere. From Trailer Park Boys Randy to a

Every Rose Has Its Thorn is a song title that perfectly encompasses what it means to do battle in the NHL and come out on top. The rose,

Think about that for a second. People are ragging on the Canucks for how they are chalking up wins. Does that make sense to anyone else? That's the same as telling your grandma the sweater she got you looks like rainbow puke, what you really wanted was an Atari (or whatever
