Yesterday, we went down to the Vancouver Sun offices to get some photos taken. While we were there, we took the opportunity to use their camera equipment and film an impromptu segment about the Sedins.

Now imagine how good this video would be if we had prepared for it!

    Why does it take a couple of west coast weirdos to keep the whole Sedin issue in perspective? I have been wondering for weeks, specifically in regards to the two mainstream journalists named in the video, just what game they were watching. Your video has made it quite clear to me…they aren’t watching the games at all. They are making it all up according to a recipe devised by the eastern media who sleep through the games then read recaps and watch highlights. There outta be a law!

      Very subtle with the snarkiness there John. I don’t think that was the point of the video at all, they were just making the point that stat lines tend to be unreliable indicators of how well or how poorly someone is playing.

      Anyways, I’m a big fan of the Sedins but I think that the stats line ( especially goal production) is important because that’s what they do best and what they need to do in order for team success.

    I must say, compared to most other bloggers I’ve seen on video segments, you guys actually look like you belong on video too, calm and professional. Nice video, hope you’ll keep making more of those.

      Hey thanks. Considering we had nothing prepared for this video, we take this as an extreme compliment. This compliment is so extreme, it’s doing a 1080 in a halfpipe.

    Wagner and Mooney: Bringing common sense back to the internet! Along with sweater vests and overly trimmed beards (its the playoffs, live a little!).

    The primary goal of mainstream media is to create stories, subplots and controversies both for die hard fans scouring the internet between games for any news-crumb, but also for the uninformed and only marginally interested. These stories (while not complete fictions, as the Sedins weren’t playing up to their usual standard injury or no there was a bit of a drop off, just not one that warranted all the moaning) involve bending the truth and using whatever stats are convenient.

    Again, long time reader, second time poster. Keep the videos coming (we need something other than the horror show of watching Gallagher crack jokes).

    Wagner looks like Hamhuis. Odd.

      My hair is significantly less curly. But yes, I can see it.

    I found this photo odd.

    Harrison’s eyes just keep shifting to the left over and over again. Sure, he could simply be looking at Wagner as he’s talking. But I believe those eyes are looking beyond him.

    That begs the question. What’s over on the left that is so interesting?

    My idea is this.

      Heh. Awesome. Although I might actually just be envying her replica Henrik Sedin jersey. Wish I could afford one of those.
