Stick in Link: extra coaching for David Booth; new contract for Mike Santorelli?

It’s time for “Stick in Link”, the feature where we just plug in a bunch of stuff written by others! Featuring a smattering of links from around the Smylosphere and beyond every Tuesday and Thursday. Warning: our links are so hyper, they change colour when exposed to heat. (Have something for us to share in the next edition? E-mail us at, tweet us @passittobulis, or just come over and write your link on a pad of paper, I guess.)


  • Missed this last week, but this is a great article from Ben Kuzma about David Booth approaching John Tortorella about working with a power skating coach, casting his “private meeting” with Tortorella in a completely different light. [The Province]
  • The December Canucket List, full of events to check off as you watch December games, like “Brad Richardson wears the ‘Player of the Game’ haida hat” and “Daniel Sedin punches Brad Marchand in the face eight times, with the crowd counting along with each one. Daniel may or may not finish this sequence off with a DDT.” That last one is slightly unlikely. [Legion of Blog]
  • In addition to the awesome hat, the people of Haida Gwai gifted the Canucks with an incredible carved panel. As carved panels go, it’s pretty boss. [Canucks]
  • At first glance, it looks like Daniel Sedin completely forgot how to shoot the puck, then you realize that’s not what he’s aiming for. [Canucks Instagram]
  • John Garrett kept his mouth shut as Eddie Lack closed out last night’s shutout, so what was he thinking about? My bet: food. [Canucks Hockey Blog]
  • With Alex Burrows out, it’s time to put Zack Kassian with the Sedins. [NW Sportsbeat]
  • Who on the Canucks is best at entering the opponent’s zone with possession of the puck? [Canucks Army]
  • These NHL Equivalency numbers for Canucks prospects from @joshweissbock are based on what other players have done making the jump directly to the NHL from different leagues. Anton Rodin is having a great season in Sweden after struggling in the AHL: could he bypass the AHL next season and join the Canucks? [imgur]
  • Thomas Drance is keeping a close eye on Bo Horvat in the OHL and he likes what he sees. [Canucks]
  • Slow-motion Sedin goal? Yep. [Canucks TV]
