I was talking to my dad on the phone yesterday. First, he lamented that neither his nor my NHL hockey team made the playoffs this year and then he proceeded to tell me a joke. I asked him where he heard said joke and he replied, “On the comedy section of the ‘net.”
“Wait, where did you hear that joke?” I said, confused.
“You know, the comedy section of the ‘net.”
That’s right, the “comedy section of the ‘net.”
This media release just appeared in my inbox:
NONIS RELIEVED OF GENERAL MANAGER & SR VICE-PRESIDENT DUTIES BY VANCOUVER CANUCKS
The Canucks didn’t make the playoffs and now the heads must roll, and it looks like Nonis was at the top of the head-rolling list.
It will be interesting to see what other moves the Canucks make in the next few months in response to this lackluster season. Over on Darren’s blog he mentions a prospect that is being looked at as a potential linemate for the Sedin twins – Fabian Brunnström. Darren mentions Brunnström’s recently career history and stats, as well as the suitability of Vancouver as a place for this young Swede. But he neglects one important piece of the analysis that must be undertaken on all new Canucks prospects, especially one that will be playing with the Twins. Hottie or non-hottie?
My extensive research into the topic comes to the following conclusion: Hottie.
