In the midst of all the Dustin Penner drama, I started thinking to myself why would a well respected veteran general manager like Kevin Lowe go through so much trouble to bring over the 25 year-old Manitoba native to Edmonton. Penner, who appeared in all 82 games with the Anaheim Ducks last season, finished with 29 goals and 16 assists in his first full NHL season and played in all 21 playoff game... Read More »

Favorite TeamsI'm a B.C. Boy so naturally I'm a die hard Canucks fan, my other favorite teams include the Sharks, the Rangers and the Senators.
Most Hated TeamsI can safely say I hate the whole Northwest Division excluding, of course, the Canucks. The team I dislike the most in the Northwest would have to be the Minnesota Wild.
Favorite PlayersMy favorite forward in the NHL is Joe Thornton, my favorite defensemen is Jay Bouwmeester and my favorite goalie is Roberto Luongo.
Most Hated PlayersThe players I hate the most in the NHL are Raffi Torres, Alexei Yashin, Chris Chelios and Ladislav Nagy.
Best Hockey MemoriesMy best hockey memory is when Matt Cooke scored with 5.7 seconds left in the third period to send Game 7 of the Flames / Canucks playoff series into overtime in 2004.
