His sports heroes include former Padre and Hall-of-Famer Tony Gwynn, Mats Sundin (still waiting for a capable winger or two) and of course, Dougie Gilmour and Wendel Clark of the early 90's Leafs.


  1. Editor says:

    What a first night of action!

    A lot of talking points including:

    – The Weber ‘turnbuckle head slam’ incident with Henrik Zetterberg;
    – the Penguins huge collapse — at home, no less;
    – the resilient Philadelphia Flyers; the Kings scoring late to defeat the Canucks who got relatively good goaltending from Roberto Luongo;
    – the North America-wide Canucks hate intensified thanks to more dives, goaltender interference and dirty head hits;
    – Mike Babcock’s classic in-game interview with Brian Engblom on the NBC telecast.

    Discuss amongst yourselves.

    Well tonight is the night were two favourite teams Pittsburgh and Vancouver can be booted from the playoffs. As everyone knows, Im a Canucks fan and I havent had much to cheer about this playoff other than a couple of good periods but nothing to show for it.

    I like the Canucks when their backs are against the wall…I dont see a sweep coming but the road ahead doesnt look good. There needs to be a reverse sweep … 4 straight wins in 4 games. Impossible? Nope. Unlikely? Probably, but I’ll be cheering until the end which might lead to tears.
