Joel Wheeler, Staff Writer

Joel Wheeler is a Canucks fan from Nelson B.C., old enough to love Naslund, but too young to (truly) remember why we hate Messier. Likes include advanced stats, controlled possession play. Dislikes include enforcers, and the liberal over-use of the term 'goalie controversy.' He is an English Graduate from York University, who still currently lives in Toronto, but he just can't bring himself to cheer for anything but West Coast hockey.

Tim Redinger, Editorial Director, FanSided NHL

Founding Editor of SabreNoise and Editorial Director of FanSided NHL. Also editor of 1428 Elm - so my fandom crosses hockey and horror, or the horror of being a Sabres fans sometimes crosses into my love of movies. I am kidding of course. I love hockey, I love horror, and I love to write, so I do both. When it comes to hockey, I'm a wear white at home, blank sweater wearing fan, non laces type guy. I can't see spending money on a sweater with a guys name on it when he might not be around long enough to wear it out. If I am going to get a name on a sweater, its gonna be an old white home sweater, with either an 11 or a 7 on it. When it comes to horror, there are only a few things that I deem off limits, and even if it is within the boundaries of what my mind will accept, I will still likely sleep with the light on!

Dan Donkers, Staff Writer

Dan Donkers moved to Vancouver from Toronto in 1995. It took him a while to appreciate the Canucks, but when he did he never looked back. Dan lives and works in the Vancouver area, and passionately follows Canucks games, news and trivia.

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
