This whiny-looking photo of Henrik Sedin (Whinerik?) was taken just moments after the Canucks’ captain was felled by an Andrew Ference crosscheck to the ribs. The Sedins, as you might know, spend a lot of time with their backs to defenders, and as a result, their spines have evolved into diamond nanorods. Their fronts, however, are crosschecked much less often, and therefore retain the sensitivity of normal people. This hurt.

A lot of people accused Henrik Sedin of trying to sell a call here, but that’s not what I see in this photo. I see a sensitive soul singing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” from a place of raw emotion. I also see a lot of other things.

Here are 20 things Henrik Sedin might be saying in this photo.

  1. “I’m Daniel!”
  2. “Thank you sir, may I have another?”
  3. Hurrah for anarchy! This is the happiest moment of my life.”
  4. Ah! My groin!”
  5. “Not the bees!”
  6. “But I was going into Toshi Station to pick up some power converters!”
  7. Yeeeaaaaaahhhhh!
  8. “For the last time, Glenn Healy, we used to kill penalties!”
  9. “Loud noises!” — @bobbytwats
  10. “Du gamla, Du fria, Du fjällhöga nord!” — @maddynorton
  11. “See, Andrew, if Burrows was going to really bite someone – he’d open his mouth THIS wide…” — @Steve_May
  12. “Which way I fly is Hell; myself am Hell; And in the lowest deep and deeper deep still threat’ning to devour me opens wide, to which the Hell I suffer seems a Heav’n.”
  13. “When the pimp’s in the crib, ma, flop it like it hurt, flop it like it hurt…”
  14. “Oh Andy, you came and you gave without taking!”
  15. “Hold on for one more daaaaay!”
  16. “Finland sucks!”
  17. “Stella!”
  18. “Tonight we dine in Hell!” (or any other Gerard Butler line from The 300)
  19. Supertramp is canceled tonight? Nooooo!
  20. *Wilhelm Scream*

I’m no hero. By all means, suggest other, better, funnier captions in the comments.

    You know I’d have a bigger problem with the Nucks diving if it werent for the fact that they can get crosscheckd 9 times without a call in the span of about 3 seconds. Maybe if the Refs made the right calls rather than the ticky tacky stuff they end up calling players wouldnt feel the need to flop and snap their heads back.

      I hate the diving across the league. And PITB, to my mind, wrote the best blog post on this during the Predators series (among other things, reminding us that the Preds were accused of diving by Anaheim’s GM just one series prior). But, if the Bruins are going to try and take extra shots at the Sedins after the play is blown dead–you know, because supposedly they are wimpy and you can shut them down by taking the body hard, a.k.a., slowly injuring them–then the Sedins are within their rights to dive.

      This is different than diving to draw a call when the game is on, and there’s a hockey play against the player. That I cannot defend.

      Ha. I’m a Monster! is one of my favourite Buster moments. Love when he rips down the banner and the “You’re killing me, Buster” banner shows up behind it.

      *sigh* What an amazing show.
