Mid-season hockey musings
I love the Canucks. I've been especially impressed with the way they have been playing as of late. It seems that ever since Vingault took over they have been slowly improving at playing a full 60 minutes of hockey, not sitting on leads (and not giving up when they're playing terribly) and playing with grit and determination no matter what the score. After Mitchell clipped Salo with his stick they were down to three D-men while on the penalty kill and still they did not give up, did not make any stupid plays. However, I think it's a little ridiculous to assume that based on the way they are playing that we will win the cup. I'll reserve my playoff predictions until I see the way they play on their upcoming epic road odyssey.
Also, as I've said for the last 2 years, the Blackhawks are looking mighty fine.
