Vancouver Canucks Song: One Pick Away (Charlie Puth Parody)

As the Canucks’ playoff hopes slip away, I turned to my keyboard for comfort and came up with a brand new parody song.

While I’ve never been part of “Team Tank”, I do indeed realize that the worse the Canucks do in the standings, the greater chance of winning the draft lottery and picking Auston Matthews at number one.

So here’s a song that inspires hope for the future – a future that would be a lot brighter with the best player in the available in this June’s NHL Draft, Auston Matthews.

My 12-year-old son Jacob took a break from his bowling and speed stacking to provide the vocals in this parody of Charlie Puth’s song “One Call Away”.

CCC – Clay’s Canucks Commentary for January 29, 2012: The Last Shall be First (All-Star Edition)

The NHL held its annual All-Star game this past weekend in Ottawa, with Team Chara defeating Team Alfredsson (with 3 Canucks) by a score of 12-9.

The All-Star festivities kicked off with the Draft on Thursday night in which San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture was selected 38th overall…or last.  While some people dismissed it as no big deal, in this CCC I argue that it is indeed a big deal to be picked last, even if it’s from a pool of 40 elite NHL players.

Through it all, Couture handled it with dignity and class and we can all look forward to many great years ahead from him.

Also, I will likely leave you yearning for more Marie Hui and less of me as I start this CCC off with my rendition of Vanessa Williams’ “Save the Best for Last”.
