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.)


 

• Trevor Linden talks about 3-on-3 overtime, which is going to be awesome: “I think you’re going to see some set plays, because you can’t actually possess the puck, but it will be exciting. [...] With the Sedins, they have such a great ability to give-and-go the puck and the way they create time and space for each other won’t change much.” Aw yeah. You had me at 3-on-3 set plays from the Sedins. [The Province]

• Kevin Bieksa's departure means an opportunity for other guys to step up. And start blocking every single one of their fans on Twitter, I imagine. [The Canadian Press]

• Iain MacIntyre talks with former Canuck Scott Walker, who's back in the organization in a development role. [Vancouver Sun]

• A closer look at Sven Baertschi, who recently said he'd like his name pronounced Bear-Gee. Seriously, with all the consonants in his name to choose from, he goes off the board and picks G. Who is this guy? [Vancity Buzz]

• Here's the local perspective on Monday's Kraft Hockeyville festivities. [Times Colonist]

• Why I love the NHL preseason. Not me. The guy who wrote this. [OneCanuck]

• "Like many people with autism, he rarely makes eye contact and his voice is a bit gruff. But Christian – scion of the Aquilini family, owners of the Vancouver Canucks – has found other ways to connect, with his easy smile and knack for cracking jokes." [The Globe & Mail]

• If you're not reading Grainne Downey's Babych Please, you should be. In this edition, Jannik Hansen brings his own chair to the bench. That Hansen, always playing by his own rules. [Canucks Army]

• Is Linden Vey the Canucks' X-factor this season? [The Canuck Way]

• Finally, here's Ronalds Kenins and Matt Bartkowski mic'd up during a scrimmage.
