Getting Ready For Fireworks

I know that Jannik Hansen won't develop sitting in the press box and needs to get some prime playing time with the Moose, but the timing of this is kinda funny, don't you think?

From canucks.com:
Vancouver Canucks Senior Vice-President and General Manager Dave Nonis announced today that the Canucks have recalled right wing Mike Brown from the Manitoba Moose of the AHL and reassigned right wing Jannik Hansen to the Manitoba Moose of the AHL.

Brown, 22, has played in 17 regular season games with the Manitoba Moose this season, he has registered three points (2-1-3) and 69 penalty minutes. Brown finished with three points (3-0-3) and a team-high 194 PIM in 62 regular season games with the Moose in 2006-07.
If, as expected, Brown steps into the lineup on Wednesday against Booger and the Wild, I hope he remembers to eat his Wheaties for breakfast. Brown, at 6'0" and 210 lbs., gives up 7 inches and 50 lbs. to the Wild goon.

I hate the guy (Booooogard, that is.)

Don't know exactly why the Canucks are changing up the lineup after that amazing matchup the other night, but sometimes you do what you preemptively have to do!

I sure hope Brownie can hold his own out there, but also, I hope the rest of the team doesn't get distracted by Booger's comments.

If Minnesota wants to run around and play stupid hockey, they can go ahead. The Canucks just gotta play the way they have the last couple of weeks and leave it at that.
