Picture from Marvel’s “Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born”

 

The Vancouver Canucks have scored a grand total of 2 goals against the Nashville Predators in Round Two of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Of special concern are a few of their gunslingers: Ryan Kesler, Henrik Sedin, and Mason Raymond. The trio combined for 75 goals in the regular season, 29% of the Canucks’ total output. They have combined for a whopping 0 goals in the playoffs. The ka-tet seems to have been de-railed from their ka. These gunslingers have forgotten the faces of their fathers. I am here to remind them of their oaths and prevent the ka-tet from splintering.

Speak the oath! Remember the face of your father! Become a gunslinger once more.

I do not aim with my hand;
He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I aim with my eye.

I do not shoot with my stick;
He who shoots with his stick has forgotten the face of his father.
I shoot with my mind.

I do not score with the puck;
He who scores with the puck has forgotten the face of his father.
I score with my heart.

    I love Stephen King – I didn’t know he was a hockey fan!

      Let’s not forget they threw in a Battlestar Galactica reference not that long ago; clearly, there is some serious geek/nerd cred going on here.

    Game 7, Stanley Cup finals, OT … an unlikely hero – Aaron Rome scores the winning goal on a mad scramble in front of the net, follows the puck into the net, and promptly disappears into thin air! (Nobody notices because they are too busy celebrating).

    Later, he is reported to have appeared on a rural road in BC just in time to push blogger Daniel Wagner out of the way of a careening van, saving his life. Tragically, Rome himself does not survive.
