Depending on who you talk to, yesterday’s flare-up between Mason Raymond, Willie Mitchell and Shane O’Brien was a positive or a negative sign.

It’s a positive if you consider that the players are at least showing some emotion. It’s a negative if the bad blood carries into the dressing room and during games. Not too long ago, the players themselves were commenting on how truly tight-knit this group of Canucks are so I’m sure the former is true. I hope that’s still the case.

Some coverage from the scrap:

Global TV has some video. Click on this link to watch it – Mason runs into Willie at about the 1:30 minute mark.

And Kristin Reid from Canucks TV has reaction from the players and the coach.

    So is it just a coincidence that both Raymond and O’Brien were healthy scratches against Minnesota?

    Raymond was probably a healthy scratch to get him going… for the Superskills Competition.
