To read more from Vancity Canuck, read her Vancouver Canucks blog as well as her work at The Hockey Bay. Thanks again, VC!
1. Which player, for the love of God, do you NOT want to see in your team's sweater in the 09-10 season?
Any player with a girl's name, namely Marian.
Gaborik: When he's not injured, he's a really exciting player to watch. But he does get injured, 27 injuries since 2000 injured. There's also a lot of obstacles when you play in Vancouver, he could trip and break his leg on the seawall, sprain his ankles on the Grouse Grind, break both legs snowboarding on the mountains...or just trip on some electrical tape.
Marian Hossa really might be the best in the litter, but I can't get over the feeling that he's cursed in the Stanley Cup Finals.
2. Conversely, pick a potential move by another team that would just crush your soul/favorite team's chances.
Bouwmeester in Calgary! Imagine having Jay Bo and Phaneuf shutting down Vancouver's top two lines six times a year. I want him on my team, and if we can't have him, I'd rather see him in an Oilers jersey than being a Flamer.
