“People will get to know what a great hockey town this is. Everyone wants to talk about the cold weather and that it’s not easy to live here with the winter and stuff like that. But a lot of guys don’t realize the atmosphere for hockey and treatment players will get here beats a lot of the best cities in the NHL. In the next couple of years I think players will be privileged to play in this city.”—Jonathan Toews (via 33royhappened)
We aren't the girls who get 42 'likes' on our Facebook pictures, we aren't the girls that act dumb to get the guys, or that wear shorts with our asses hanging out. We care more about music than popularity. We are the girls who have laughing fits without worrying if are faces look weird, we are the girls who genuinely care about how you are, we are the girls who don't make a big deal of what you said 2 years ago, we're the girls who care more about being nice that who thinks that we're 'hot', we are the girls who can be quiet and often overlooked, but I guarantee we are the girls you'd rather be friends with.
“Burr and I sometimes team up on Juice (Bieksa). Then he chirps us or calls us twins or something. It’s always good fun and we’ve been like that for six or seven years now.”—Ryan Kesler [source] (via vancitycanucks)
“You had to get to know Ryan, his grumpiness in the morning, and sometimes he’s kind of a tough guy to get to know. But once we got to know each other, we became really close.”—Alex Burrows [source] (via vancitycanucks)
Daniel to Bieksa, fakes the shot, takes the shot, blocked by Huskins, Burrows is fresh, knocked the puck loose to Edler, back in for Alex Burrows it's up in the air.. SCORE! The puck looked like it was out of play but it stayed in. Kevin Bieksa took the shot, Vancouver's won it in double overtime, and the Vancouver Canucks are going to the Stanley Cup Final!
I started liking Brad Winchester after seeing him walking down the way of the Renaissance Center in Detroit, MI. I was waiting with my friends to meet some of the St. Louis Blues on April 5, 2009. While waiting, I saw this tall guy walking with blondish hair and curls on the back of his head. I was like, OMG look at him and then, I realized who he was and since then I have been following him with the Blues and his career…. now waiting to see where he will be signing this summer as he is a UFA….
“It’s just like the relationship I have with my brothers. You can fight with them, argue with them, and you often see me and him (Kesler) bicker back and forth at each other. But at the end of the day we have each other’s backs and we’d do anything for each other. Same way with Burr. We don’t bicker as much as Kes and I. But the same kind of thing. Our families are close and we’d do anything for each other.”—Kevin Bieksa on his friendships with Ryan Kesler and Alex Burrows (via pernellkarl)
