Unreal Canucks Gif Tournament: ‘Luongo likes it, puts ring on it’ vs. ‘Sedins in Sync’

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.



(1) We call this gif LUONGO LIKES IT, PUTS RING ON IT.

And so it comes to this: Roberto Luongo has foxy-walked his way out of the Luongo division, but is his ability to put a ring on it enough to slip past what we have collectively agreed to be the greatest Sedins gif in existence? He has a few things going for him. For instance: a lavender shirt. People love lavender shirts.

(1) We call this gif SEDINS IN SYNC.

I mean, sure, this gif is like some sort of poetry. It could probably be included in a digital update of Lyrical Ballads and no one would think it’s out of place. But there are no lavender shirts anywhere. It’s like they don’t even want to win.


OKAY. Now let’s vote.

Voting closes at midnight.

    Bobby Lu bids Detroit good-bye
    Then shows he is a handsome guy
    So why this one where’s he’s so stiff
    ‘Tis not the best Luongo gif

    While Henridk’s catching of the stick
    Was simply smooth and rather slick
    The twins repeated deja vu
    Is quite the better of the two

    And will today go on of course
    But not against the pommel horse
    Facing perhaps the best of all
    The most amusing Phaneuf’s fall

    And I admit I just don’t know
    The final way the votes will go

      I know! I ended up choosing Lu, just because we’re trading him and the least we can give him is the win in PITB’s gif tournament. : P

    Dang, I could have sworn that dancing Luo got edged out by Lou, Handsome Person. Oh well.

    Tough call. The Sedin one is to me much funnier. The Luongo one is much weirder. There is also the fact that one is unintentional and the other required an act of will and so on to commit to that dance. I cannot really say. Either is worthy.
