The Vancouver Canucks Are Officially The "Swedest" Team In The NHL (Arvedson!)

By a long shot. With the addition of Magnus Arvedson today, they now have a grand total of 7 Swedes! If I remember the team with the next highest total has 4. Here's the updated list of Canucks Swedes:

1. Mattias Ohlund
2. Markus Naslund for us
3. Henrik Sedin
4. Daniel Sedin
5. Mats Lindgren
6. Johan Hedberg
7. Magnus Arvedson

Swedes must love Vancouver. Good thing it has two IKEAS!

Arvedson was a Selke Award finalist a couple years ago, and was one of Ottawa's most balanced players. He scored an amazing top shelf goal on Brodeur in game 7 during the playoffs if you remember. This really improves the bottom end of Vancouver's forwards, and frees up potential trade bait for a top notch forward to play on the 2nd line. I think once we get that one last forward, we will be as good as Detroit, Dallas and even Colorado (given we now have better goaltending than Colorado with the addition of Hedberg).

Can't wait for the season to begin!

I'm too baked to think that hard.

Vancouver, BC: Weed capital of the world. It's all grown in Stanley Park:

I just had a thought. If the Canucks ever won the Cup, instead of pouring champagne or beer into it, they'd probably just turn it into a giant bong! The parade down Georgia into Stanley Park (to bring its namesake home) would be hidden under the biggest cloud of smoke this side Texercana. (Texercana is the actual place where a lot of pot is grown in BC...hence why people refer to it as "Texercana Gold".)

I am off Swedish decent (last name and all).

I like Vancouver.

I don't partake in cannabis though.

Disclaimer: I was actually kidding about being baked, by the way.

Zoni - But you've never been to Vancouver, so how would you know if you like it? (Sorry, couldn't resist that one. )

I think you have us confused with the Dutch, Chizip.

Yes, you certainly are very Swede.

Swedes from Minnesota...get out of here!

And they did. Denver is actually a pretty damn nice place to live if you ask me. It is on my list of "potential place to live."

Cousin Avi! I like the sound of that.

hey i don't know about you guys, but you've gotta give it up for the team with the ultimate swede, peter forsberg!!! and we've got some canadians: sakic and kariya a czech:hejduk and a fin:selanne. we're bringing the cup back to denver baby!!!!

and in regard to the canucks, maybe the greatest hockey moment i've witnessed is seeing bure get denied by richter and the canucks losing out on the cup because of my boy messier's incredible leadership!

so put all that in your stanley park pipe and smoke it

LOL, and to think I actually used to like the Avalanche until I read your post.

BTW, Messier should have retired after that spring in '94. He hasn't done anything since then...except teach Markus Naslund a couple things I suppose...so for that, I'm eternally grateful.

The superficial façade that was the Av's shallow confidence has now evaporated with retirements and departures. Get ready for an extra long winter, and a golf rich summer boys.



Griffiths, why haven't you signed up for my hockey pool? Zoney? Anyone damnit? Is it because I'm too amicable, too nice?

Things will have to change...

PS- Swedish talent is good in medium doses.

Yes, I will have to look into that pool. When's the deadline?

AvsGirl - Are you going to just take that lying down? Swedish talent is never a bad thing.
