“I am not a doctor, I’m a lawyer, but after having conversations with the player and with the club, anyone who thinks this injury did not affect his play must have fallen off a turnip truck.”
— Ryan Kesler’s agent Kurt Overhardt fires back at AV over his comments about his shoulder injury.

“There’s ups and downs in this business. Mike Smith (Phoenix goaltender) was a client of mine and he bounced around and couldn’t stick with teams. Look at him last night and he was incredible. Ryan started his season late then he had some issues and had some other things. You have to look at the total picture.”
— Vancouver Canucks’ GM Mike Gillis on Ryan Kesler’s disappointing season.

"Maybe people would like his numbers to be higher, but we know he’ll step up and his defensive game has been solid. You ask centremen across the NHL and he’s always in your face and gives you that extra push after faceoffs that he loses. He’s never happy, but he never complains about his hip and is always ready to go."
— Alex Burrows on Ryan Kesler’s return after his hip injury.

"Yeah, that was awesome…"

Taking a bite out of the Canucks
The Legion of Blog offers up some interesting sandwich ideas to commemorate the Canucks — and just in time for the NHL playoffs.
The Higgins: Chicken salad made with Chipotle mayonnaise, lettuce, tomatoes, on whole wheat bread. For $2.00 extra you can get it “Extreme” which means the Chipotle mayonnaise has been left in the sun for most of the day.


The Ryan Kesler: Lean cuts of turkey, egg white, shredded lettuce and protein powder whizzed up in a blender and served open shirt faced.  

The Cory Schneider: Thick slabs of honey baked ham, swiss cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes on a warm hoagie roll. Our most popular sandwich, but it’s only here for a limited time. 

The Sedin Brothers: A harmonious mix of Swedish lunch meats, grilled vegetables and exotic cheeses. Although it’s a meal in itself you can pair it with one of our new side dishes. Unsure which one to pick? It doesn’t matter; they all taste good when paired with the Sedins.



The Kevin Bieksa: An all beef, kosher hot dog that for some reason doesn’t taste as good when you eat it here, but it’s amazing when you get it for takeout.

Even more sandwich suggestions can be found on the Legion of Blog.

Woman won’t face charges for hitting Canucks fan at the Shark Tank
Prosecutors will not be filing charges against a Sharks fan alleged to have hit former B.C. teen Maggie Herger, which gave her a slight concussion, at a game six weeks ago, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
Herger is taking it all in stride thanks to the Canucks who sent her team memorabilia, including a handwritten letter from Ryan Kesler himself.
Maggie is “over the moon”  because her favorite Canucks player, Ryan Kesler — whose jersey she  wore to the game — wrote her a letter recently with a signed picture  and other team memorabilia.
