Newsworthy – 2012 Hockey Hall of Fame Inductions

12 Nov

2000-01 UD – Mats Sundin

1990-91 O-Pee-Chee – Joe Sakic

1992-93 O-Pee-Chee – Pavel Bure

1990-91 Pro Set – Adam Oates

Sure signs I’m officially old:

Item #1: I’m experiencing my third NHL lockout as a fan.  This one is just so ridiculous, it’s laughable.  I feel bad for kids who just want to watch hockey.  I was a kid in 1994-95 and it was awful.

Item #2. These four guys are in the Hockey Hall of Fame now.  Congratulations and thanks for all the great years to Joe Sakic, Pavel Bure, Adam Oates, and especially to Mats Sundin.  Mats, you deserved better.

Fantastic Fashions – The Vancouver Red Canucks

31 Oct

1997-98 Score – Alexander Mogilny

So, today is Halloween.  However, just so we’re crystal clear here, the red uniform above that Alexander Mogilny is wearing was not a Halloween costume.  It was an actual uniform worn by the Vancouver Canucks in 1995-96, and then, because they were convinced it looked good, again – again! – in 1996-97.  I guess there is a Halloween theme here – because the Canucks’ uniform history has been something of a nightmare.  Heyo!

SIDE NOTE: you might not remember, but the Vancouver Canucks were an ice hockey team in the former National Hockey League (NHL).  You might remember the NHL for the times they actually played hockey between labour disputes.  In other news, I’m not bitter about the lockout.
