Willie love


Vancouver Sun sports writer Elliot Papp has an excellent spotlight piece on Canucks defenceman Willie Mitchell today.

With six points thus far and a team-leading plus-seven rating, Mitchell certainly deserves the accolades.

I criticized Mitchell during the Canucks early season road trip for his apparent loss of a step but he has straightened his game out since.  Back to his reliable old self on the defensive side of the game, Mitchell has surprised with his offensive output thus far (his career high is 14 points in a season).

Furthermore, his partnership with a revived Kevin Bieksa stands out as the Canucks top defence pairing at even strength.

You won’t find a Canucks fan happier about this than me.
