Jacob “Milk Carton” Markstrom

Saw this in the super market today. Maybe we can help the Canucks and Torts finds this guy. We did trade a future Hall-of-Famer for him.

At this point, the Canucks are setting this guy up for a huge let down. This kid is a super prospect who may actually be higher than Eddie Lack on the Swedish goalie pecking order.

I somewhat understand Torts’ belief that we have to ride Eddie if we want to make the playoffs but that dream realistically died 2 months ago. I also understand Torts’ wants to see if Lack can handle the load of a Number 1. I think it’s safe to say he’s done that. Ultimately, it’ll be someone other than Torts who makes the call come next October as I suspect he’ll be fired at the end of this season.

It’s now time to see what kind of ROI the Canucks received for their former franchise goalie. On the other hand with the way the Canucks have been playing, putting him in now may warrant a visit from Amnesty International.

Eddie Lack gives advice to Jacob Markstrom

Occasionally, I hit a tweet out of the park. After patting myself on the back, I usually wait for the inevitable Twitter love and 99% of the time…crickets. Today was not one of those days.

That display of my poor Photoshopping skills and sense of humour was retweeted immediately by @passittobulis then an hour later by @vancitybuzz. Their influence, to quote Ilya Bryzgalov is, “humongous big”. Soon I was trending in Vancouver

To give you an idea of the power of influential followers, I tweeted out a part 2 of Lack and Markstrom’s locker room discussion and I got 3 retweets.

I thought this one was a better joke but the @passittobulis folks thought differently

Who am I to question the masters. Damn good advice too.

This is the 5th time (who’s counting) I’ve trended in Vancouver. Trust me, it never gets old. Plus it allows me tell my daughters that their Daddy is famous on the internets. Which is always met with eye rolls!

Now I wait for the money to pour in. I think that’s how social media works.

P.S. Now I know why people hate manual retweets!
