This week in anguish: - Tristan had five teensy, manageable little talking points, and Ardella claimed to have nothing at all to say. The Canucks who aren't injured are hibernating. This one clocks in at one second under 90 minutes.  - We bette
This week in anguish: - The Canucks' two steps forward, one step back approach to life has us wondering if we'll ever cross the finish line in time.  - We welcome Jimmy Vesey to the team. Or at least we meant to. We end up questioning his chara
