In this CCC I start off my acknowledging a couple of neat achievements: I’ve been elevated to “Featured Contributor” status on the Canucks.com Fan Zone, and I’ve joined the team at Canucks Hockey Blog (http://www.canuckshockeyblog.com) where I will do a regular written feature called “Things That Make You Go Hmmm.”
I take a quick look at the Canucks’ 4-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks in game 4 (a win that gave them a 3 games to 1 lead in the Western Conference Final) an in particular, I examine the Canucks’ blue line and how Keith Ballard, Chris Tanev, and Alex Edler are a few things that make you go hmmm.
Here are the links to Keith Ballard’s hip checks as mentioned in the CCC:
