Unreal Canucks Gif Tournament: ‘Daniel Sedin gets Keslurked’ vs. ‘Ryan Kesler, Lord of the pommel horse’

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 — SECOND ROUND, KESLER DIVISION

***

 

(2) We call this gif DANIEL SEDIN GETS KESLURKED.

Wherein Daniel Sedin’s shoulder suddenly sprouts a Ryan Kesler head during an interview. I like that he stops talking as the head comes up, too, then starts again once it’s fully emerged. In my mind, the question he’s being asked is, “Are you aware that Ryan Kesler’s head just grew out of your shoulder?” and his response is, “Yeah, well, it does that sometimes.”

(4) We call this gif RYAN KESLER, LORD OF THE POMMEL HORSE.

There’s the puck along the end boards. Kesler is the closest to it. No doubt he’d be the first one on it if he didn’t decide to bypass the Predators net by awkwardly climbing over it and getting all tangled up with Pekka Rinne. That is not an efficient way to go. In the words of the great Mitch Hedberg: go around. I mean, seriously, this guy won a Selke award? With hockey sense like that? You’ve gotta be kidding me.

OKAY. Now let’s vote.

Voting closes at midnight.

WINNER — RYAN KESLER, LORD OF THE POMMEL HORSE (52.08%)

    I Say Oh Hey

    I say, “Oh hey, which gif is best,”
    Just doesn’t pass the grammar test.
    As both of you have your degrees,
    I deem you could do better, please.

    But otherwise this tournament
    Is truly quite a fine event,
    Though I admit I’ve not a clue
    How fans ignored young Lappy’s “Woo!”

    Or Dank Sedin’s the “Soccer Star,”
    Favoring gifs less good by far.
    Of course it isn’t really news:
    The random way that people choose.

    I only pray we’re not so bush,
    The winner’s Phaneuf on his tush.

    Neither really blow me away. Ended up voting for Pommel Horse simply becuse I attended that game.
