Nucks Misconduct

Milan Lucic's Church Vandalized in Vancouver - CanucksArmy
According to Milan Lucic's girlfriend Brittany Carnegie, who tweeted the photo you see above: Milan Lucic's family church, Saint Archangel Michael Serbian Orthodox Church in Burnaby, was desecrated by graffiti which, targeted the Bruins power-forward.

Gillis Angrily Declares "No True Scotsman!" - CanucksArmy
Responsible citizens, responsible fans, to behave responsibly, and that you’re not part of our fan base if you choose to be irresponsible -- whether you’re celebrating or you’re angry or whatever you are.

A Second Consecutive 'Once in a Lifetime' Season - CanucksArmy
Still, as far as regular seasons go it was unlike anything that anyone in Vancouver had ever witnessed and the thinking heading into this season was that the 2011-12 Canucks should be very good again, but none of what they did last season could possibly be duplicated. Teams simply don’t get on those types of rolls last season’s Canucks had year after year. Or do they?

The Good, The Bad and the Working Overtime - CanucksArmy
Has there been any Canucks player as exciting as David Booth lately? In my house the answer is no. We are very Booth friendly here. I remember back in October when yet another Canucks/Panthers trade was announced. Ryan Kesler needed a new line mate and who better than someone that he’d already played with (in the junior and minor league.)

G58 Canucks at Oilers - Lowetide
The Oilers have a tremendous number of depth players who are not only underperforming their contracts, it is a mystery they are on the team. I’ll name Anton Lander and Lennart Petrell, but you could also include Theo Peckham, Corey Potter after the injury and Devan Dubnyk has also been disappointing. We’ve discussed Eager and Hordichuk before, the main problem I have with these players is having them on the roster at all, but I don’t know that we can say Darcy Hordichuk has failed to deliver on what we might have expected from him.
