Rob The Hockey Guy:
The Vancouver Canucks have announced that Nolan Baumgartner will be an assistant coach of the Chicago Wolves. Baumgartner will join newly appointed head coach Scott Arniel behind the bench next season.
Baumgartner who was originally drafted 10th overall by the Capitals in 1994, spent time with Washington, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Dallas and Vancouver. “Baumer” has he’s called by teammates suited up for 143 NHL contests and 887 AHL games. He’s spent the last five seasons with the Vancouver Canucks organization, captaining the Manitoba Moose and the Chicago Wolves.
There’s a few things I remember most about Nolan Baumgartner. One of them being that he almost got to play in the Cup finals instead of Keith Ballard. How big of a kick in the dick would that have been to that already low confidence of Ballard? Man. Also, I don’t know why but I always remember him gift wrapping a pass to an Oiler for a quick and easy OT win against Vancouver years back. Stupid memory.
Anyways, congrats to Nolan Baumgartner. If there was a guy who deserves this, it’s him. Never heard a bad thing about him. Glad he’s finally getting recognition. Also, I’d like to say how awesome this picture is. Please tweet me your captions. It’s a quality picture.

Roberto Luongo has left Vancouver. OK, it's only for a brief trip to Las Vegas, where he will be participating in the World Series of Poker this week. But if there were any doubts that the trade rumors swirling around the Canucks netminder were going to come to fruition, Luongo did a pretty good job erasing them on Friday. Luongo spoke for the first time since the end of the...
Playing GMMG For A Day
While Vancouver Canucks fans patiently wait out a trade for goalie Roberto Luongo, I thought it would be fun to play the I’m Mike Gillis game again.
This time instead of eating as many lobster stuffed tacos as I can and drinking enough red wine to fill a bath tub, I’m going to focus on a trade. The focus of that trade is Bobby Ryan.
I’ll be honest, I’m...

This is my final post making the Hall of Fame case for the 2012 Hall of Fame inductees. I have written posts about Pavel Bure, Adam Oates and Joe Sakic. Today it is Mats Sundin’s turn.
I make my cases using the Keltner List. This is a series of qualitative questions popularized by Bill James in baseball, but the same idea works well in hockey as well.
