Well, that game against the Kings could have gone better. The Canucks were flat for most of the first and second periods, Lui let in a bad first goal, the power play and penalty kill were terrible, they took too many pointless penalties, and by the time they played very well in the third, it was too late. I just found I wasn’t too angry about this one. The Canucks were going to lose eventually, and I kind of like the Kings, so good for them. They were the better team last night. I do hope the Canucks humiliate the Ducks tomorrow, however. I loathe the Ducks. Even more so now that they waived cute little B-Mo.
It’s just too bad they couldn’t get a win for their mummies.
I usually totes love Puck Daddy. I think Wysh has some great coverage and it’s really funny. Puck Daddy is one of the first blogs I check out in the morning. But I’m going to have to call Puck Daddy out for the mention of the Canucks mums trip they had last night. The trip was part of the dishonourable mention section.
Look, the new tradition of having fathers of players join the team for a select road trip during the season is cool, especially when the dads all sit together wearing the jerseys of their sons. But what doesn’t work is a “Mom’s trip”, which is exactly what the Vancouver Canucks hosts in Los Angeles Monday. When asked what plans they had afterward, the answer was go shopping. Need we say more?
Excuse me? Sounds a little sexist. How is it “cool” for the dads, but it doesn’t work for the mums? The mums looked totally wicked in their sons sweaters last night. I’m impressed that the Canucks did something different than the usual NHL dads trip and invited the mums. They most likely had just as much to do with their sons career success as the dads did. Finally, how is shopping that much different than the usual other stereotypically touristy things the dads would do on the same trip? Weak sauce, McKeon, weak sauce. It kind of sounds like you might have mummy issues.
Enjoy some pictures of Canucks and their mummies.
