Unreal Canucks Gif Tournament: ‘Henrik Sedin, drum major’ vs ‘Henrik’s like this, but Daniel’s like that’

Introducing the Unreal Canucks GIF Tournament, a quest to determine which Canucks GIF is the greatest in existence. We’ve narrowed it down to 32 candidates, divided into four divisions then seeded, one through eight. Now we need your help. An important note: this isn’t just something to do while the players and the owners waste time bickering over who should get what’s left of the money they’re burning — it’s also a super-important initiative. After all, if we don’t do this, how else will we know? AND WE MUST KNOW.

UNREAL CANUCKS GIF TOURNAMENT — FIRST ROUND, SEDIN DIVISION

***

(2) We call this gif HENRIK SEDIN, DRUM MAJOR.

Henrik snatches the stick right out of the air! He does it so casually, too, like he’s been twirling batons since he was born. Maybe he’s emboldened by the fact that he’s wearing a helmet. Maybe it rains hockey sticks in Sweden so this isn’t that big a deal. But either way, it’s a badass, super-cool moment from the Canucks captain and it looks totally sweet as a gif.

(7) We call this gif HENRIK’S LIKE THIS, BUT DANIEL’S LIKE THAT.

Wherein the great Trevor Linden explains the difference between the Sedins. This is more than a gif. It’s an invaluable visual guide. Next time you’re stuck, just remember that Henrik’s like this, but Daniel’s like that. You can’t fail.

OKAY. Now let’s vote.

Voting closes at midnight.

WINNER — HENRIK SEDIN, DRUM MAJOR (65.1%)

    I feel shame voting against anything involving Trevor Linden. But drum major live was crazy.

    I agree with Collin- this one left me far more conflicted than the other rounds. If there was ever a case for a wild card- it’d be this.
