Canuck Countdown

linden.JPG35 days, 6 hours, 45 minutes until the puck drops and the NHL season officially begins. For all the Canucks action at the Garage, here’s the ticket purchase schedule courtesy of VCOE:

Pre-season home games:
Friday, September 8th @ 10:00AM.
Regular season home games:
Saturday, September 16th @ 10:00AM.

It being the off-season I completely understand how people can not be thinking about hockey. If they are, they’re getting confused and frustrated with our team, not only after the season they’ve had but after all the trades, comings and goings. Hosting the draft this summer was pretty cool though, it quenched our hockey thirst (briefly) and gave us hockey-lovin-geeky Vancouverites a chance to witness the process. Also, if you stayed for hours you were probably able to rub elbows with some all-time greats and get some autographs.

The Canucks roster has not yet been finalized but we can pretty much get an idea of who will be on the ice this season by paying attention to who’s at training camp. For everything you could ever wanna know (and more) check out some of the great local hockey blogs such as the Canucks Hockey Blog and the previously mentioned/linked Vancouver Canucks Op-Ed

Check out the sites and familiarize yourself with some of the MANY new faces over at our hockey team whether you love them, hate them or hate to love them. Feel free to leave a comment telling us how you feel about the Canucks and/or if you know another great local Canuck blog.

The countdown is on.
