Tribute to Trevor Linden # 16


trevor linden jersey retirement 300x195 Tribute to Trevor Linden # 16

# 16 Goes to the Rafters

Trevor Linden had his # 16 raised into the rafter by the Vancouver Canucks on December 17, 2008. Trevor Linden was and always will be one of Vancouver’s finest.

Here is a great tribute to the Canuck from SubCrib TC (a member of SomethingAwful):

Trevor Linden has been the heart of the Vancouver Canucks since the day he was drafted. Not seeing him on the ice just seems wrong, but at least this time we don’t have to watch him play in another uniform.

TREVOR THE ROOKIE

Linden was drafted second overall in 1988 by the Canucks. In both of his previous two seasons he had led his hometown Medicine Hat Tigers to Memorial Cup victories. Linden jumped straight into the NHL at age 18 and held his own. His first goal was against Kelly Hrudey, but he managed to score some against good goalies too. He was the first Canuck to make it to 30 goals in his rookie season, and the only rookie to ever win the Cyclone Taylor award as team MVP. Leech beat him out for the Calder by a hair, but I don’t know if we can hold that against anyone.

Showing signs of what would come, Linden upped his game in the playoffs his rookie year and managed 7 points in the 7 game first round series against the Cup winning Flames.

Marian Gaborik is Back!


marian gaborik minnesota wild 300x213 Marian Gaborik is Back!

5 Goal Game Photo

Like many others, I am hoping for my fantasy team to get a little extra boost to it now that Marian “I can’t stay healthy” Gaborik is back in the Minnesota Wild lineup.

This is a great thing for the NHL. I still remember watching the Wild vs. Rangers last season when Gaborik went off for 5 goals. I hated to watch it, but was still in awe by how amazing it was.

From Yahoo! Sports:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP)—Minnesota forward Marian Gaborik will play for the Wild against the Calgary Flames after coming off injured reserve.

Minnesota will have its career scoring leader back in the lineup Wednesday night for the first time since Oct. 14.

He has missed 27 games because of a lower-body injury the Wild haven’t identified.

Gaborik began practicing with the team a week ago and deemed himself “good to go” after Tuesday’s workout. The Wild could use some scoring from their speedy right wing: Their 76 goals are fewest in the Western Conference.

Alexander Ovechkin = True Sniper


Here are the two goals by Alexander Ovechkin last night (12-16-08) vs. the New York Islanders.

The first one is a wide open net basically set up by an amazing pass from Alexander Semin.

The second one is the definition of a snipe. Ovechkin snipes the top corner of Joey McDonald to win the game in Overtime with just 11 seconds remaining until the shootout.

Unbelievable!



Mats Sundin to Make Decision Thursday 12-18-08


mats sundin van nyr 300x225 Mats Sundin to Make Decision Thursday 12 18 08

Canucks or Rangers

Which of these jerseys would Mats look better in? Try not to ignore my suburb Photoshop skills.

The Rangers are more desperate for his services currently because they have no scoring ability besides Nikolai Zherdev. But, from the sounds of the article below, the Canucks sound pretty confident.

Also, there is a huge rumor involving the Thrashers and Rangers which involves Ilya Kovalchuk and Scott Gomez. I will post more on that tomorrow if there is any validity to it.

From NHL.com:

Vancouver Canucks General Manager Mike Gillis met with the media Tuesday afternoon and revealed that the heavily sought-after forward will tell the world where he’ll play this season in two days.

“He’s going to make a decision on Thursday about the final destination, and we reiterated our position in all of this and formalized our offer moving forward,” said Gillis, who has met with J.P. Barry, Sundin’s agent, numerous times over the past few weeks.

“We feel good about our team and where we sit and what we have to offer, and we’ll see how it plays out.”
