The Stork

For all the (justified?) boourns the Canucks' scouting staff have to deal with, every now and then they pick up a gem and it goes largely unnoticed.

That is until it's too obvious to ignore. Chris Tanev says hello, by the...


Booth, brains and business

Posted by Canorcas, 12 November 2013 · 721 views

It must be a difficult time to be a David Booth fan these days. There’s not much love in this city for the eccentric 28-year old, who came over from the Florida Panthers in 2011.

Since then, Booth has scored 18 goals and 35 points in 79 games. If those 79 games were over the course of a single season and not bits and pieces over two years, they...

Sauve looking for redemption after blown pre-season

John Jang

October 4 2010

A little over a month ago, Yann Sauve arrived in Vancouver hoping to impress the Canucks' staff and to battle for a roster spot with the big club.

But fate had other plans for the 20-year old native of...

Mason Raymond ready to join 30-goal club
John Jang
September 24 2010

Calling it a big year would be an understatement to describe last season for Mason Raymond. After a disappointing 23-point campaign in 08-09 that included a few trips to the press box, the Cochrane, Alberta-native silenced...


First Date Gone Awry

The Canucks started out well, with a strong 2-goal first period performance that, apart from a Brent Seabrook tally, silenced the crowd at United Center.

But if the first period is anything like an introductory phase between two people on a first date,...

It may not be the most highly anticipated game during the Olympics, but there is sure to be lots of talk when Team Canada meets Team USA on Olympic ice in Vancouver.

And when the puck drops between these two juggernauts, Ryan Kesler will become Team Canada's number one enemy.

It's been well documented and recorded that before this year, the only...
