Canucks Honoring Luc Bourdon Tonight

Amidst all the hype and hooplah surrounding the new season, I nearly forgot that the Canucks will be honoring the memory of Luc Bourdon before they drop the puck tonight. 

I have no idea if it will be part of the CBC feed. I would guess not based on timing issue but I'm sure they'll show clips of it.

The Canucks unveiled a wall of dreams today as part of the dedication. The organization appears to be going all out for the young defender and good on them for doing that.

I still remember watching the World Juniors in 2006 and hearing the Vancouver crowd scream "Luuuccc!" every time he touched the puck. He was something special and it's too bad his life ended so soon.

The Bourdon and Cherepanov accidents are tragic, for their families and the NHL. The question is whether these accidents can be prevented in the future. Maybe better testing on the NHL's part for the Cherepanov situation and educating the players (youngsters) on dangerous activities such as motorcycle etc... Just seems like more should/can be done to prevent tragedies like these from occuring in the future.... My thoughts.
