From the studio that brought you A Gutsy Christmas Volumes 1 and 2 comes the year’s most anticipated CD, or holiday drink coaster if you prefer.

A Gutsy Christmas 3 has arrived.

So kickback after a massive meal, unbutton your jeans to show off that holiday gut and melt right into your couch to enjoy some of these Vancouver Canucks-themed festive favourites, such as ...

— David Booth’s cover of Run Rudolph Run

— Little Slumper Boy, featuring Alex Burrows

— Andrew Albert’s Away In The Press Box

And this soon to be single — It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Buffalo Won The Trade (With Every Mistake No. 9 Makes)

But the big hit that has everyone singing along is this Sedin classic:

(To the tune of Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer)

Daniel and Henrik Sedin/Are the best players on the team/And if you ever saw them/You’d know exactly what I mean.

All of their loyal teammates/Marvelled when they have the puck/Watching two world-class talents/Boy everyone was sure in luck.

Then one lengthy shootout night/Coach Torts was forced to say/OK guys, hop on the ice/Get it on net, that’s my only advice.

But again they fanned on their shots/The bench looked on in misery/Daniel and Henrik Sedin/Your shootout days are H-I-S-T-O-R-Y.

This album also features a couple solos as GM Mike Gillis serenades fans with Oh Come On Time All Ye Faithful and head coach John Tortorella’s I Want A Hippopotamus on Defence (You Can Never Have Enough Shot Blockers).

As well, goalie Roberto Luongo gives us this memorable little number.

(To the tune of Let It Snow)

Oh his huge contract is still frightful/And his year was less than delightful/But the Canucks couldn’t trade him so/Lu’s in goal, Lu’s in goal, Lu’s in goal.

Of course, what Canucks Christmas album would this be without a song dedicated to one of their favourite Grinches, with Milan Lucic Is Not Coming To Town.

And finally, the team’s biggest surprise player has a hit all to himself.

(To the tune of Santa Baby)

Santo-Relli, who would have guessed you would be, this good?/Been a bargain this year, Santo-Relli/ But how’s it feel to make less than Dale Weise?

So order today and we’ll throw in the bonus Olympic holiday track, In Sochi Russia, Bells Jingle You.

DISCLAIMER: A Gutsy Christmas Volume 3 is not actually real.

But that’s only because not even auto-tune could make us sound good.
