NHL needs Manning

Where will Peyton Manning land? The Jets, Dolphins, Chiefs, Vikings, Seahawks are all possible spots. Well any GM with a pulse, a QB not named Brady, Rodgers or Manning is a likely interested. Turns out at least one sportswriter in Vancouver thinks the Canucks could use a laser rocket arm:

What is it that all the media scribes have been saying about the Canucks since last year? Sure, the Canucks are skilled, but are they tough enough to stand up to the Bruins, the Flyers or one of those creepy Moms from, Toddlers and Tiaras? No. Well, let me ask you this, Sherman? Who is mentally tougher than Peyton Manning? He’s practically oozing with mental toughness; which is the complete opposite of Steven Tyler, who just appears to be oozing.

Sure, Manning may or may not be able to skate and the fact that his giant dolphin-like forehead will probably eat up a lot of the Canucks equipment budget for those specially designed helmets, but did that stop Luc Robitaille? No. Let’s face the facts. Peyton Manning is available, he’s a leader, and most importantly, he’s available.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
