The Caps visit the Canucks tonight for a 10 PM game in what is often hailed as one of the cooler cities in North America.
Bro, you know how you go into bulking mode and eat a ton more calories than normal when you’re trying to put on some muscle? Do that today, except with caffeine instead of calories. Or just go to bed at your normal time and come back to RMNB tomorrow for a full recap. Or take an evening nap.
Speaking of naps, the Canucks front office appeared to nap through the entire offseason. I mean, seriously, they had such a bad offseason that I’m suspecting sabotage.
For a snapshot of how bad GM Jim Benning and crew were over the summer, here’s a look at the incoming and outgoing WAR, courtesy of the Canucks season preview on The Hockey News
In trying to get better, the Canucks made themselves three wins worse. Heck, they got better compensation for the Blue Jackets hiring their ex-coach than they did for trading Eddie Lack, a goalie the Hurricanes hope can become their starter in the long term.
But alas, tonight is just one game. Despite the fact that the Caps have the better team and GM, anything can happen in a one game sample. The game is at 10 PM and the CSN #squad has the coverage.
