Bieksa accuses Sharks of embellishment

This is funny stuff... apparently, Vancouver Canucks Defenseman Kevin Bieksa is accusing the San Jose Sharks of embellishing and head snapping. You can't make this stuff up. Seriously! This is coming from a guy that has on it's team roster such clownish buffoons as Alex Burrows, and Maxim Lapierre, two of the biggest frauds in the NHL. I don't know how he can say this with a straight face. Let's not forget that this is the roster that also includes accomplished divers Henrick and Daniel Sedin and Ryan Kessler, evidence included below. This is way too funny. Maybe Bieksa should worry about his own team first.

Jannik Hansen hit to the head of Marian Hossa

During last night's game, Vancouver Canuck forward Jannik Hansen hit Chicago Blackhawk forward Marian Hossa's in the head  with this dirty hit. This play needs to be reviewed by the department of players safety. There is no doubt that this hit and should have been more than a two minute minor penalty, in my opinion.

Rule 48 - Illegal Check to the Head

48.1 Illegal Check to the Head – A hit resulting in contact with an opponent's head where the head is targeted and the principal point of contact is not permitted. However, in determining whether such a hit should have been permitted, the circumstances of the hit, including whether the opponent put himself in a vulnerable position immediately prior to or simultaneously with the hit or the head contact on an otherwise legal body check was avoidable, can be considered.

Cory Schneider, 'we’re not panicking right now'

This is what former Boston College Eagle All-American goalie Cory Schneider had to say about the current CBA negotiations. Schneider is part of the 30+ members of the players' bargaining committee.Things haven't changed Cory is still cool as a cucumber.
“I think the only thing I can say is it’s a first offer,” Schneider told Papp via phone from his offseason home near Boston. “It’s a starting point. We’re going to consider it and figure out what our counter-proposal is going to be. Yes, it is a little shocking when you first look at it but, again, that’s how negotiations work. You aim high and then try to move back from there.

“There is going to have to be a lot of give and take for us to come to an agreement. So we’re not too worried and we’re not panicking right now. We’re just going to take it one meeting at a time.”

Schneider added that it was far too early to assume another lockout was inevitable based on the league’s first proposal, with training camps not slated to open for another two months and the regular season almost three months away. “There is still plenty of time,” he remarked. “I mean, we’re not thinking in those terms yet. I think we’re both trying to get a deal done here, but it takes time and it takes negotiations.” [Elliot Pap, Vancouver Sun]

Another reason to hate the Vancouver Canucks

English: Cory SchneiderImage via WikipediaI mean really?!? Cory Schneider is a good goalie and a very serviceable back up to the Canucks head case Robert Luongo, but he isn't even close to the stature of Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas. I guess as a Bruins fan, I can just chalk it up as another reason to hate the Vancouver Canucks hockey team.
The Providence --- Cory Schneider, an American from Marblehead, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston, was one Canuck willing to weigh in, and his message was simple. Thomas should have sucked it up and gone to the White House.

“I’m not that religious but if I had the chance to meet the Pope, it’d be pretty cool,” Schneider said.
”I don’t believe in everything the Catholic church does, but I’d still show up to the Vatican and say Hi to the Pope.

“I have no problem with his personal beliefs, but (Thomas) can suck it up for an hour, say Hi and be with the team, and avoid all of this.

“Respect the (Presidency). He plays for Team USA and he has no problem making millions of dollars in the USA but he can’t go say Hi to the President.

Michael Frolik penalty shot...

I have never seen a goalie get hurt on a penalty shot before. I hope that Canucks goalie Cory Schneider is ok. Schneider was playing well until he was pulled from the game due to this injury.
