So last night I was out with a few friends catching the Vancouver/Nashville game and the Canucks video for the BC Children's Hospital came up in discussion. If you haven't seen the video of it, it's on Canucks.com here. Each player has a card that has a word or a part of a message that they hold up. It's cute, there's no denying that.

But someone I was with had an interesting opinion on the video. The video was made for the BC Children's hospital, whose majority of patients are made up of kids. KIDS. Kids who may or may not be able to read (the really young ones), so a lot of the intention of the video will be lost on them. Would a quick trip to visit the patients in hospital not have been more effective? The visits from the players is what the kids look forward to, a video is not quite the same. Perhaps this was done just because they didn't want to go because of H1N1 at this time (complete speculation) and maybe they will also make a visit to the hospital in addition to the video later in the season.

What do you think? If you were at BC Children's would the video be good enough or would you have preferred a visit from the players?
