Oilers vs. Canucks

Easy peasey lemon squeezy.

Easy peasey lemon squeezy.

This is a picture of Yannick Hansen roughing up two Oilers, Dustin Penner and someone else. Hansen was playing in the AHL AllStar game last night, and it reminded me of my developing belief that players should play in the minors almost as a no-matter-what rule, unless their name is Crosby or Tavares. At least half the Oilers should be in Springfield right now. The Falcons would probably still be struggling anyway.

I forgot to set the PVR again for tonight’s game against Vancouver and the Sedins, but maybe that’s just my subconscious forcing me to block out the pain. As long as I keep telling myself that I enjoy hockey and watching a team in my hometown then maybe I can strain my eyes enough to be entertained by something.

Games against the Canucks are usually entertaining, mostly because they’re always feisty and filled with fights and penalties, games where Ethan Moreau should feel right at home. Here’s hoping Ryan Kesler gets hit in the shin-pad with a wrist shot and then limps off the ice similar to Alan Rickman dying at the end of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. We get it, you block a lot of shots, and it’s such a tough job.

In short, I hate the Canucks more than the Flames.
