Canucks Corner with Ad Man Mike

Posted in Featured, Sports

First of all, Merry Christmas or happy, whatever you celebrate this time of year. Friday's  game vs Calgary was very telling. For the first time this season, the team had the opportunity to jump into first place in the northwest and fit in the top 3 in the west. In the past few weeks, I've been saying they CAN win it all. But WILL they?  My point being. They say they have ...
