Heard it, LOL as I was leaving. They were just talking about Bud Light or some other beer company and right after they do the Heineken song.

If I ever get free tickets again, I will have to remember to take a radio with me (Team 1040). Intermissions are a bit boring. Anyway good game to be at. LOL at the, "Oilers Suck" chants.

Fact: Since January 9th, 2011, Cam Ward and Scott Gomez have scored the same number of goals in the NHL. Gomez has 2 goals in 2011.

That is...if that goal stands up as Cam Ward's.

why? i thought ballard has been playing decently
hes not really given a top4 role, but has been steady for the roles hes been asked to play
once in a while, he'll make some nice end to end rushes

Agreed with trancehead

He's been playing better than last year that's for sure

Seems like people are bitter and saying he sucks after the Carolina game where he didn't tie the game up

Ballard makes me nervous a lot of the time when he is on the ice. He made some passes last night out of his own zone that were pretty dangerous, and a few times an Oiler player was able to intercept it and make something out of it.

I think he's a good 5th/6th dman for the Canucks, but his salary does not warrant his role on the team.

Staph can be fairly common among athletes, particularly in a MMA, gym and wrestling setting if you're not careful about cleaniness.

Seems like everytime one guy is injured, another guy comes in. If thats the case:

"@VanCanucks: AV: David Booth about a week away from starting to practice. Lui starts vs SJ."

Not too sure how accurate this is, but I've been told by a doctor that once you get staph infection, it is fairly easy to get it again from cuts and such.

Correct me if am wrong, but if Higgins is placed on IR his salary is minus'd from the Canucks cap room

But when Booth comes back, the teams cap doesn't change. It'd still be $0 of cap space

couple days old.. not sure if this has been posted yet

Alex Edler could be next to face big decision about 'hometown discount'

Read more: Alex Edler could be next to face big decision about 'hometown discount'

When it comes to Christmas presents, a number of players have been in a giving mood for a while so as to be involved with the Canucks in this city.

It's well known that quite a few players, including Kevin Bieksa, Ryan Kesler, the Sedins and Alex Burrows, have taken lower salaries than they might ordinarily have earned to play here. And there is one guy right now who is in the give-back mode, or at least it seems that way.

We speak of Sami Salo, the 37-year-old Finnish defenceman who for so long sat on the sidelines with his myriad of injuries collecting $3.5 million annually on the contract that expired after last season. Here's a player who clearly could have made more money somewhere else and in fact, probably could have had a lot more from Vancouver had he not been in something of a payback mood and taken the 'seniors' discount here. Playing for just $2 million this year, Salo is in fact performing more like a $4-million-plus guy despite his years, and his contribution is as important to the fortunes of this team as his continued good health, as they nudge close to the salary cap.

The contributions of these players, most notably Salo this season, have allowed Vancouver to once again get into position to challenge the best of the best in the league.

“I don't like talking about the contracts of other guys. You make a deal and you have a job to do,” says Bieksa. “We never talk about money in this room. But guys sacrifice to be part of something better and we do that because it's a great organization here. The Aquilinis take care of us in every way, we travel well, we have the best trainers in the league. There's just a lot of good reasons to play here.”

We bring up these matters because down the road there is at least one significant player who will have to make the Bieksa/Christian Ehrhoff decision in his own life. That man is Alex Edler.

“Hoffer had a great shot and he used it all the time but Alex has a great head on his shoulders and finds guys open better than maybe any defenceman in the game,” says Daniel Sedin. “He's got a good shot, too, but doesn't use it as often as Hoffer. He's not that easy to read.”

What he's done in many ways is emulate Nick Lidstrom, his offensive game in particular. The two play the point in many of the same ways, although Edler somewhat blushes when he hears the name.

“Whenever you watch Detroit you watch the things he does and you always try to learn,” said Edler the day before he suffered back spasms against Detroit. He then laughed when it was pointed out that he has a physical element to his game that Lidstrom doesn't and fired of this retort: “Yeah, but he has a few other things … like seven Norris trophies.”

The soft-spoken defender has 24 points in 34 games, a pace that works out to well over a 50-point season. If he can do that again next year with the same cast -- which isn't much of a stretch -- he would be an unrestricted free agent with the possibility of Ehrhoff numbers dancing in his head.

And while he is extremely comfortable here and loves everything about the place like everyone else, in 18 months things may be radically altered here. Edler will be looking at signing the biggest and longest contract of his career, but the Sedin window might -- repeat might -- be closing given they will be nudging 33. Ryan Kesler will have been through two more meat-grinder postseasons, Dan Hamhuis will be 31 and Edler's partner right now, the aforementioned Salo, is almost certain to be long gone. What sort of environment will he be committing too if he decides to stay? Will Roberto Luongo still be playing well and appear capable of winning a (or another) Stanley Cup? Will there be enough good young players around Edler to make staying here an attractive proposition? He may be willing to sacrifice but the environment has to make sense.

Not surprisingly, he doesn't want to talk about it. It's miles ahead yet and he hasn't had the one 50-point season, let alone two. But this giving spirit Vancouver fans have been enjoying requires vigilance from management. The giving only happens in earnest when a team can realistically compete for a Cup.

Kesler, Burrows, and the Sedins have all taken Hometown discounts. I dunno about Bieksa's contract though...... If he plays like he did in the San Jose series then yes, id consider it a hometown discount but atm hes not (He is playing alot better now than the start of the season though)

Edler will be signed no problem in my opinion. We'll just have to move Ballard thats all
