While the core of the Canucks remains relatively intact from last season, a handful of depth players have moved on. Christian Ehrhoff is in Buffalo; Tanner Glass is in Winnipeg; Raffi Torres is in Phoenix. Granted, all of these players are replaceable, but they were nonetheless fan favourites to many, and it’s difficult to see them go.
We recently stumbled across this video by the audiovisual crew over at Surrey’s Enver Creek Secondary School, in which the kids from ECTV discuss which of the departed Canucks was dearest to them. As with most high school productions, it’s awkward.
Still, it’s not without its charms. Here are a few highlights:
If there was an Oscar category for awkward delivery in short films, I would nominate “We’re gonna miss that slap” guy.
Speaking of awkward moments and Christian Ehrhoff, the second time his name comes up, a young lady walks past the set in a Buffaslug jersey. I couldn’t quite tell if the stinkeyes she gets are because she’s wearing the uniform of the team that stole Ehrhoff, or because even high schoolers understand that the buffaslug jersey is an abomination.
This clip features bad acting aplenty, but the kid that says “I’m gonna miss Raffi Torres” seems genuinely crestfallen. I have it on good authority that this kid’s name is Colin. If you know Colin, give him a hug.
How did these kids get Tanner Glass to give a shoutout to their crew? They asked him at the Dear Vancouver rally on June 28. Good thinking on their part. There isn’t much that Glass won’t do for the kids.
The Canucks season is currently in a weird limbo state. We're far enough in that it seems like we're seeing trends that will dictate how the entire season will play out, but it's still far too early to pass judgement on the team. […]
Tragedy! The Canucks lost their first game of the season on the weekend, which means everything is awful, right? Actually, Daniel and Harrison are still feeling pretty positive about the team, even after the loss to the Lightning. […]
The Canucks are off to a 2-0 start, which has Vancouver optimistic and hopeful for the first time in a while. Sure, those first two wins have come against the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers, but the new Canucks coaching staff is making a good first impression on the fanbase. […]
The final cuts are all but complete for the Canucks heading into the regular season, so it's time to preview said season. Nicklas Jensen is down in Utica, while Tom Sestito stays with the Canucks, Bo Horvat is sticking around, and Luca Sbisa is in the Canucks' top-four on opening night. […]
