"It’s obviously very special — especially with what the Masterton stands for. You look back at the guys who have won in the past and what they’ve overcome and triumphed over in very serious situations. To be thought of in that regard, is very humbling to me. Whether I win or not is irrelevant. Being held in that regard is pretty special to me."
— Manny Malhotra on being nominated for the Masterson Trophy

Did the Canucks lose their minds in Chicago because of Duncan Keith?

No, argues Province sports columnist Ed Willes. If you think so, you weren’t paying attention.

"The Canucks did exactly what they had to do at the United Center. They had to respond after Keith’s chicken-excrement hit on Daniel Sedin, and we’re not talking about a power-play goal. If they would have let that hit go, then you could seriously question their actions.”

What do you think of the revamped forward lines and the new defence pairings?

So you’re worried.
Counting the loss to Montreal last Saturday, the Canucks are 2-3-1-1- in the last seven.
…That’s two wins in seven games.
Well, misery loves company, so we’ve looked back at the last decade and tried to spot the worst slumps. So grab a Kleenex and take a ponder.
