The Sore Thumb: Vancouver Canucks

When you see the title of this blog, you’d think we’d be a source for Vancouver Canucks information (or at least snark). No, that is not the case. Instead, you should go to blogs like Vancity Canuck. Sha Sha’s a longtime buddy of the blog and even runs a Tampa Bay Lightning blog (The Hockey Bay) to boot! What an overachiever…

All in-depth analysis aside, what flaw or weakness in your team sticks out like a sore thumb?

The one thing that hasn’t changed from last year, is that the Canucks still don’t have secondary scoring. There was hopes that Cody Hodgson was the answer. And Cody Hodgson was not the answer, at least not right now with his ailing back. Then, there was hopes that Sergei Shirokov was the answer, and it turns out he was not the answer. So where is our secondary scoring when the Sedins and Burrows don’t score? Hopefully Kesler and Samuelsson can find some chemistry with the newly promoted Raymond, or hopefully Berniers hands of stone finally turn into hands that can put pucks in the back of the net. Hopefully. And speaking of sore thumbs, or sore shoulders/knees/who knows what Salo/Demitra/Schneider has hurt now….Some components of the Canucks are like glass, you never know who’s gonna be hurt from taking a hit/puck/throwing a hit/trippingoverelectricaltape…
