D-Day For Rory And Other Tidbits

For your reading pleasure on another 'Nucks day off:
  • The NHL All-Star Game voting results aren't supposed to be announced until tonight, but both local papers are reporting that Rory Fitzpatrick did not make the top-two. - Ben Kuzma (Vancouver Province), Brad Ziemer (Vancouver Sun)
  • For all the old-school boys being against the Vote For Rory movement - and very much vocally so - people are talking about the NHL All-Star Game and have been talking about it for a couple of months. Good or bad, is any publicity good publicity? - Mark Spector (National Post)
  • Shootout hero Josh Green isn't about to get on his high horse. Good thing too. - Gordon McIntyre (Vancouver Province)
  • With five goals in 11 games, Trevor Linden is threatening to re-take the franchise goal-scoring lead from Markus Naslund. Okay, maybe that's a stretch, but you have to admit that Trev's playing well like it's still 1994. - Brad Ziemer (Vancouver Sun)
  • In this bandwagon market, it's funny how one goal changes everyone's outlook on things. By breaking his long goal-scoring drought on Sunday, Markus Naslund is no longer radio call-in show fodder and is once again a Canucks hero. - Grant Kerr (Globe and Mail)
  • You know how Mike Sillinger is somehow always traded to a contender at the trade deadline? Seems like Luc Bourdon is going down the same career path in the Q. Only a year after being traded to Memorial Cup hosts, the Moncton Wildcats, Cool Hand Luc has been dealt to another Memorial Cup hopeful, this time to the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. - Willie Palov (Chronicle Herald)

1) There was no way that Rory was ging to get in. The word came down from the top(Bettman)that they would NOT allow the voting to become a mockery.
2) We discussed this on our blog last month:
