Dustin Byfuglien

IT’S GOOD TO BE BAD…
ESPECIALLY IF YOU PLAY IN THE NHL…
RIGHT NOW DUSTIN BYFUGLIEN COULD RUN FOR MAYOR IN CHICAGO…AND WIN…
NOT BAD FOR A GUY WHO PLAYED HIS JUNIOR HOCKEY IN PRINCE GEORGE…
BYFUGLIEN HAS NO ILLUSIONS ABOUT HIS NEW FOUND POPULARITY IN THIS PROVINCE…
AS HE PUTS IT…“THE FANS DEFINITELY HATE ME”…
IT CERTAINLY HAS CUT DOWN ON HIS SOCIAL LIFE….
BYFUGLIEN NOW ADMITTS…THIS TRIP TO VANCOUVER HAS INVOLVED LITTLE MORE THAN STAYING IN THE HOTEL AND GOING TO THE RINK…
BUT THANKS TO HIS PERFORMANCE IN GAME 3…HIS IMPACT ON THIS SERIES CAN NOT BE DENIED…
3 GOALS…6 HITS…
IN THE MEANTIME…ADAM BURRISH HAS TAKEN A VERBAL SHOT AT THE CANUCKS…
TODAY ON ESPN CHICAGO...BURRISH RIPPED ALEX BURROWS…SHANE O’BRIEN AND RYAN KESLER…
HE LABLED ALL 3 OF THEM AS...QUOTE…UNQUOTE…”CLOWNS”…
NOT BAD FOR A GUY WHO AVERAGES 5 MINUTES OF PLAYING TIME PER GAME…AND HAS YET TO REGISTER A SINGLE POINT IN THE PLAYOFFS…
ADD IT UP AND THE HAWKS ARE A TEAM THAT YOU JUST “LOVE TO HATE”…
SO IS THAT WRONG???
THINK ABOUT IT…
TAKE A LOOK AT CANUCK HISTORY…
TIGER WILLIAMS…AND GINO ODJICK ARE TWO OF THE MOST POPULAR PLAYERS TO EVER WEAR A CANUCK JERSEY…
WILLIAMS IS THE NHL’S ALL-TIME LEADER IN PENALTY MINUTES…
ODJICK IS THE CANUCK’S ALL-TIME LEADER IN PENALTY MINUTES…
AND WHEN IT COMES TO CHIPPING…
RAY FERRARO LED THE NHL IN THAT CATEGORY FOR 18 STRAIGHT YEARS…
AND THEN TURNED IT INTO A BROADCASTING CAREER…
THIS IS THE GAME…WITHIN THE GAME…
AND ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT THE CANUCKS FELL INTO THAT TRAP…AND THE HAWKS MADE THEM PAY FOR IT…
OR ED WILLIS PUT IT…IN TODAY’S PROVINCE…
“THEY KICKED IN THEIR FRONT DOOR…TOOK THEIR FAVORITE CHAIR…OPENED THEIR BEST BOTTLE OF WINE…THEN CHATTED UP THE CANUCKS’S WIFE…WHILE CONTROLLING THE REMOTE”…
TONIGHT THE MESSAGE SHOULD BE CLEAR:
”NO MORE MR. NICE GUY”
BECAUSE IN THIS GAME…YOU KNOW WHERE NICE GUYS FINISH…

I've watched the Canucks since they came into the league. I was at the first game. Dave, I agree with much of your commentary. These boys are pussies. Perhaps its because I won championships in rugby but I take exception to being pushed around.

If I'm on the ice an Bye-Fug-Lien come near my goalie, he's going down hard. He's 260, but so am I... and I'm a lot meaner. You can see in his face he's a puppy. He's weak mentally and we should take advantage of that.

I would trade Luongo while someone still thinks he has value. He's going to be another Cloutier. My observation is that Raycroft inspires stronger play by the team. I think Raycroft is stronger mentally too. Luongo is a bit of a whiner. He can't handle the puck and he get confused very quickly.

Demitra is useless. I would have pulled him much earlier. He just goes for a skate. It's a sad day when Welterwood has to be your tough guy.

I think that someone has been spiking the team water fountain with estrogen. These guy are going to develop breasts any day now.

I'm gone now as a fan. I've had enough. I was 16 when they came into the league. They've worn out their welcome. I like the play of Boston or Montreal. I was a huge Montreal fan back in the day. I remember when Danny Galavin announce this rookie was going to start the playoff series. He has only played 6 games. Ken Dryden became a legend! That team had grit and determination. Canucks should watch the video from that era.

Can you imagine Trevor Lynden and Stan Smyl ever sitting back and taking this shit!

In the soon to be off-season they need to go after Iginla and two tough guys. Get rid of Kesler - he's just flash and too weak to produce. Get rid of Dimetra and bring in Cody Hodgson.
