A little video to cheer you up, Nucks fans

I don't even want to say much about the loss to the Penguins except:
1. Mitchell, if you are going to whack Crosby on those fat lips of his, whack him hard and make the bastard really bleed!
2. It was an entertaining game no doubt.
3. Sabourin was great. Damn!
4. Can we please get better at shootouts? Someone roll tapes of Linden in the shootouts and everyone else follow along. Do what Lindy does.
5. Are the Sedins really going to be all that effective in the playoffs? They seemed to shy away after they got roughed up. Intimidated.

Oh well. Ironically, I simmed an NHL 08 season on the Playstation 3 on Saturday and guess who the Canucks played in the finals? The Pittsburgh Penguins. So I simmed past game 3 and the Canucks went up 3 games to nothing, and I played Game 4.
Below is the footage I captured just to let you all into my fantasy world of the Canucks winning the Cup. Believe, folks. Anything is possible.

In NHL08 those freakinĀ“ Sedins look even creepier than in reality...
And who is that guy handing out the trophies?

I wonder why Bettman doesn't have his mug at the end there. It looks more like Bob Hartley!!! Maybe EA Sports knows something we don't???

The shootout alone is a good reason to keep Linden in the lineup: he and Morrison seem to be among the few capable Canucks on penalty shots. Kesler may get there eventually, but they could definitely use some help in the shootout department.

Who knows, maybe this is as close as Canucks gonna get to winning the Cup.

I tell you what, Alfredsson and Sundin have shown up in the playoffs before. But I have not seen that from Naslund and the Sedins yet. It's concerning.
It's too bad Linden isn't 4 years younger. And I still think Recchi would have been a great addition, for scoring and leadership abilities. Now we still have nobody on our team who has a Cup ring do we?

Yeah, think the closest is Aaron Miller: he was with Colorado in 1996, but only played five games during the regular season, and then got traded for Rob Blake just before the Avs won the 2001 Cup.
