What would John Garrett say?

Every blog, I think, needs a recurring theme or format to attract and capture a consistent audience.

To wit, I am pleased to introduce what I intend to be a regular feature of this particular blog. It is called, ‘What would John Garrett say?’

For those of you who have not had the pleasure of (a) living in Vancouver, (b) watching the Canucks in the early 1980s, and/or (c) watching Canucks broadcasts, this is John Garrett:

John, as this nifty pictoral arrangement should illustrate, is a current commentator on the NHL on Sportsnet (focusing his attention on the Vancouver Canucks) and a former NHL goaltender, who played for the Canucks during the early 1980s.He is also well known (and, much loved) for being a blatant, shameless, sometimes obsequious Canucks homer.
A case in point: each year, Sportsnet gathers its hockey pundits for some thoughts and predictions about the upcoming NHL season; for the last, oh five years or so, trusty old JG has picked the Canucks to win the Stanely Cup every single year.(In fact, and I stand to be corrected, I think JG even picked the Canucks to win the Stanley Cup during the lockout year.)

So, henceforward, when discussing issues related to the team or providing pre-game or post-game analysis, I will channel the wisdom of Garrett as part of my commentary. Consider it part of my ongoing effort to encourage a more positive view on the world of the Vancouver Canucks. Stay tuned.
