I have been told for a few years now that my Canucks are a bunch of soft pithy pussy cats. Now they are a bunch of thuggish goons?
What a transformation!!!! :
One small thing I noticed is when the Nucks were trying to goon it up against the Kings. I felt so bad for Richardson. He was so confused. He's like "I don't wanna mess around against my friends. What do I do?! I think I'll just watch in a corner quietly."

While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.
I think some people are missing the point that Torts missing for 6 games could be a good thing for the nucks.
at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
Tortorella was just a horrible mark from the get, and it felt like a "well he's an available name with a cup on his resume," decision that was never vetted beyond that.
They needed a culture change, and Gillis sent them further in the wrong direction.
GESCOM: it's never too early to start beefing up your obituary!
