Canucks Toughness

THE HEADLINE IN THE PROVINCE SAID IT ALL…
“VANCOUVER STILL LACKING IN THE GRIT DEPARTMENT”…
SATURDAY AT GM PLACE…THE CALGARY FLAMES KICKED SAND IN THE FACES OF THE CANUCKS…
AND OUT HIT THEM…39-22…
AS A RESULT…THE CANUCKS 4 GAME WINNING STREAK IS OVER…
THIS FROM A CALGARY TEAM THAT WAS PLAYING ITS 4TH GAME IN 5 NIGHTS…
HEAD COACH ALAIN VIGNEAULT WAS NOT MAKING ANY EXCUSES…
“CALGARY HAD MORE BITE!!!”
“WE HAD TOO MANY GUYS WHO JUST DID NOT PUT THEIR “A” GAME ON THE ICE”…
THAT CRITISIM CLEARLY DID NOT APPLY TO EVERYONE…
RICK RYPIEN SQUARED OFF WITH BRANDON PRUST…NOT ONCE BUT TWICE…
AND WANTED TO DANCE FOR A THIRD TIME…BUT IN THE WORDS OF RYPIEN…
“HE DIDN’T GO FOR IT”…
BUT THE GAME PLAN TO BEAT THE CANUCKS APPEARS TO BE RATHER SIMPLE…
PUT PRESSURE ON THE CANUCKS DEFENCE IN THEIR OWN ZONE…
AND MAKE LIFE MISSERABLE FOR THE SEDINS…
TO THEIR CREDIT…THE SEDINS…ALONG WITH ALEX BURROWS…ARE INCREDIBLY TOUGH…
AND THEY CONTINUE TO PRODUCE AT AN AMAZING RATE…
PERHAPS ASSISTANT COACH RICK BOWNESS PUT IT BEST WITH THIS QUOTE…
“THE MORE THEY CHASE THEM…THE HAPPIER THE TWINS ARE”…
SOUNDS GOOD…BUT THE LAWS OF PHYSICS SAY THAT…WHEN AN “IMMOVABLE OBJECT…MEETS AND UNSTOPPED FORCE”…
SOMETHING HAS TO GIVE…
WHAT IS REQUIRED HERE IS A “DETERRENT”
IN FAIRNESS TO RYPIEN…THAT JOB IS SIMPLY OUT OF HIS WEIGHT CLASS…
THE CANUCKS DO NOT HAVE A LIGITIMATE HEAVY WEIGHT IN THEIR LINE-UP…
A PLAYER CAPABLE OF GETTING THE ATTENTION…OF SOMEONE…SAY LIKE…DION PHAHEUF…
THE NORTHWEST DIVISION COULD EASILY BE DECIDED BY THE TWO REMAINING GAMES BETWEEN THESE TWO TEAMS…
THAT INCLUDES…THE LAST GAME OF THE REGULAR SEASON…
SO PERHAPS IT WAS FITTING LASTNIGHT…THAT THE MOVIE “SLAP SHOT” WAS ON TV…
HOPEFULLY THE CANUCKS AND THEIR MANAGEMENT WERE WATCHING…
