It’s time for “Stick in Link”, the feature where we just plug in a bunch of stuff written by others! Featuring a smattering of links from around the Smylosphere and beyond every Tuesday and Thursday. Warning: our links are so hyper, they change colour when exposed to heat. (Have something for us to share in the next edition? E-mail us at passittobulis@gmail.com or tweet us @passittobulis. Or tell us some other way. The point is: we'll probably link it if we know about it.)

 

  • Dimitri Filipovic takes a look at Bo Horvat's early-season struggles and usage, and discovers, production be damned, deployment of this sort usually points to a pretty impactful player down the road. [Canucks Army]
  • November was a pretty rough month for the Canucks. But it was a magical month for the Sedins. So let's just focus on that. [Nuck Said]
  • The Sedins are killing it. But if someone else could kill it even a little, or maybe just maim it, that'd be great. [Vancouver Sun]
  • Thomas Drance and Dan Murphy debate: is Jannik Hansen a top-six forward? Murphy says yes and no, and Drance says it's beside the question. It's really less of a debate than a philosophical exercise. [Sportsnet
  • The Canucks have recalled Alex Biega from Utica. Is he here to replace an injured Chris Tanev? If so, there is no God. [Vancity Buzz]
  • Wyatt Arndt takes over the Provies on the night of the Canucks' worst performance of the year. Did Botch know something we didn't? [The Province]
  • It's West Coast Express night Saturday at Rogers Arena. I'm gonna make a bold claim here: the WCE era was really just the opening act of the Sedin era. It's been completely dwarfed and it can't hold a candle to what came after it. Talk amongst yourselves. [Canucks]
  • Should the Canucks hold on to Chris Higgins? Could they trade him even if they wanted to? Ignoring the line from a hardly credible source at the bottom of the post, I think it wouldn't be toon hard to find a taker for Higgins at the deadline, when players with his all-around skillset suddenly take on the look of The Final Piece™ to proven contenders. [One Canuck]
  • Why the Canucks should send Jake Virtanen to the World Juniors but not Jared McCann. Full agreement. [Canucks Army]
  • Is it time to stop talking about Ryan Kesler and Kevin Bieksa? [Always 90 Four]
  • Was Brian Burke right? Is Vancouver a goalie graveyard? This column seems about nine years late, but it's still a fun read. Plus ther's an Arturs Irbe mention. [The Province]
  • Finally, a huge congratulations to Canucks blogosphere veteran Rob Williams, now a full-time sports editor at Vancity Buzz. It's a great move for the website, since it makes me infinitely more difficult for me to complain about their operation when they employ a great guy like Rob. [Rob the Hockey Guy]
