The Province Vancouver, BC
Our team is not going to dive … And I hope we get some gawd damn calls along the way.
Up this morning on the Hat Trick:
1. How angry is John Tortorella at David Booth?
2. Another D called up from Utica.
3. Chris Higgins sees a spike in his playing time.

Have you seen any of our series on racism in Metro Vancouver? It ends tomorrow, and that’s when we’re going to publish a lot of our readers’ thoughts on the subject. So if you have any thoughts to add, here are some ways to let us know. Hashtag #racisminbc on Twitter also works.

Kanye West's concert in Vancouver tonight has been cancelled

Our Canucks reporter, Jason Botchford, learned more about Joe Thornton than we wished to know:

Hearing a question to Marleau about Hertl and whether he was showboating, Thornton said:

“Shut up, have you ever played the game?”


When the press turned his way, he then added:

“I’d have my cock out if I scored four goals. I’d have my cock out, stroking it.”

OK, then.

TMI, Thornton, TMI.

For all his faults, AV did have a sense of humour.
We’re feeling awfully nostalgic ahead of tonight’s return of AV. Here’s 3 things we’ll miss about him and three things we, well, won’t.

“I don’t play the I’m-the-boss card. The guys know all the work I do to get us ready and because they’re smart, they know I’ve earned the respect here. I’m doing the job so they can be successful. Players seek that. If I see they’re putting in an honest effort, I’ll be in their corner.”
We’ll get to see those polar opposite coaching styles tonight when AV returns to Vancouver.

It’s a Brooksie and Torts reunion in Vancouver today, as seen in this photo from this morning.
We spoke with New York Post reporter Larry Brooks about his sometimes heated encounters with John Tortorella. Watch the video here.

“I need to make sure I stay on top of things. If you’re looking for a positive, it’s a time to get into even better shape than I was. I have to look forward to something and it’s getting into even better shape.”
Poor Kassian. 
After being nailed by Torts post-game on Tuesday (even though he wasn’t playing due to his suspension), he said he’ll take time off to get into better shape.
