Canucks Top 5 Surprises This Season

Bo Horvat started this season as the 3rd line centre behind Henrik Sedin and Brandon Sutter. Despite ranking 5th in TOI/GP for forwards this season, and with very little time on the power play, Horvat is leading the team this season in goals and points. He has been a professional through everything this season – good or bad. Horvat  represented the Canucks at the NHL All-Star Game, and he did not look out of place, showing off his speed against Patrik Laine, and scoring 2 goals in the 3-on-3 tou

Henrik Sedin: 999 and One to go

In 1999, Henrik Sedin was chosen third overall, after his brother Daniel and Patrick Stefan in the NHL Entry Draft. The top five picks of that draft class, rounded out with Pavel Brendl and Tim Connolly. Out of those top chosen five players of that draft class, only Henrik and Daniel have played more than 1100 NHL games, Hank with 1212 and Danny 1189. The Sedins are also the only two of that draft class that are within 40 points of 1000 NHL points. Out of those top five players picked in the Sed

Richard Brodeur: The King and The Artist in One

When many in Vancouver  think of Richard Brodeur, we think about a Canucks legend between the pipes. We think of the amazing Stanley Cup run in 1982 when King Richard put the team on his shoulders and brought them to the Stanley Cup finals. His team had no business being there, but it was his play that found a way.  These days, Richard Brodeur’s artistry is not so much on the ice, but on canvas. On Friday, November 18, Richard Brodeur will have a solo art exhibition featuring his newest work an

The Canucks Preview for the Casual Fan

As the success of the Canucks comes and goes, so do the fans. For the casual fan that’s still on board, you may not recognize the team, and for good reason. Initially billed as a retooling, this is a full rebuild. Remember the 2011 run to the Stanley Cup final? Only 6 of those Canucks are still around: Alexandre Burrows, Alex Edler, Jannik Hansen, Chris Tanev, and Henrik and Daniel Sedin. This will be the second year in a row that there is no goaltending controversy. Miller is the starting goal

Canucks Kids Looking to Make Their Marks

With the ‘youth movement’ in full swing here for the Vancouver Canucks, there aren’t any players more excited than the guys who are benefiting from it. Guys like Sven Baertschi, Bo Horvat, Jake Virtanen and Jared McCann. Throw Ben Hutton, Jacob Markstrom and Emerson Etem in there, and the Canucks are not even recognizable from the teams that was last coached by John Tortorella and even prior to him, Alain Vigneault. Canucks kids are looking to make their marks with their veteran teammates and wi

Canucks End Panthers 12 Game Winning Streak

The Vancouver Canucks end the Florida Panthers 12 game winning streak, like they ended the Montreal Canadiens nine game winning streak earlier in the season. I had a feeling the streak would end here, and it did. Here are some thoughts about the game last night and brouhaha that ensued after the OT winner by Daniel Sedin.    Game Notes   Roberto Luongo showed why he was given a 12 year contract by former Vancouver GM Mike Gillis. That glove-save on Bo Horvat reminded us why he was once our No.1

Return of the Lack

It’s the return of the Lack! Eddie’s back in town for the first time after his trade to Carolina back in August. Eddie Lack will be between the pipes for the Hurricanes tonight at Rogers Arena. Facing his old team for the first time this season, Lack is looking forward to the game and opportunity to play in familiar settings. As Vancouver’s backup goaltender, Lack became some sort of an icon in these parts. His twitter posts, his great smile and his love for tacos have made Eddie Vancouver’s fa

Evolution of Jannik Hansen

The evolution of Jannik Hansen has been a wonderful and steady progression. Picked in the 9th round of the 2004 NHL entry draft, many did not see a real future for Vancouver Canucks right winger. Early in his career, Hansen spent much time going back and forth between the Canucks then farm team, The Manitoba Moose. It wasn’t until the Canucks’ Stanley Cup run back in 2010/2011 did Hansen become a regular for the team, playing a 3rd or 4th line role with limited minutes. A shot of bloody Hans

Twas the Nucks Before Christmas: 2015

We haven’t written one of these in a few years, so I thought I’d give it a revisit this season.    Twas the Nucks before Christmas: 2015   Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the Rog Not a feature was playing, no video montage. The stands were all empty and the ice rink was bare, In hopes that St. Nicholas will soon would be there.   The players were nestled, all snug in their beds While visions of game wins danced in their heads. Willie D smiling, behind the bench where he stood A

Thin in the Middle

The Vancouver Canucks have lost Henrik Sedin to injury, leaving them thin in the middle. Linden Vey has been called up from Utica to join the Canucks in Detroit tonight. Last night in Philadelphia, Henrik was hurt in the first period of the game and did not return. A lower body injury was the report. I have a suspicion this has been an on-going injury that was propelled to worse after that hit along the boards in the first of yesterday’s game. Henrik Sedin is day to day with a lower body inj

Open Letter to Dorsett and Prust

Last night in Anaheim, was the worst effort as a team the Canucks have put forth all season. They were pushed around, out-worked and out-classed on all levels. However, some of the shenanigans that went on last night, could have been snuffed out, had certain 4th line players stepped up and took it upon themselves to not allow some events to happen. So here is an open letter to Dorsett and Prust. Dear Brandon and Derek, Last night, was the worst collective team effort I have seen in a couple of

Three Up, Three Down: Shootout in Dallas

Three Up, Three Down: Shootout in Dallas The Canucks are in Dallas to face-off with the Stars, but before that, they thought to take in some American Thanksgiving tradition and bought a suite in Jerrywood for the day. Rumour has it, the Sedins were the ones to arrange all this, but you would never hear either of them take credit. Nice way for the team to bond on American Thanksgiving. Too bad the Cowboys lost, well, not really. I’m a Cam Newton fan.    Tonight, we saw the Canucks out-sho

Three Up, Three Down: Sniper Spotted in St. Paul

It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these, so here we go! Three Up, Three Down: Sniper Spotted in St. Paul. Canucks came home from a seven game road trip for only two home games, back to back last weekend. Only to hit the road again for a four game Western Conference trip. First stop, St. Paul, MN to visit the Minnesota Wild. The Wild ] just happen to be the best team at home in the NHL currently. Prior to this Canucks visit, only the Nashville Predators, have won at the Xcel Energy Cente

Rocky Road Trip

The loss to the Ottawa Senators was a tough one to swallow. Especially since after 17 previous tries, the Vancouver Canucks finally scored on the Power Play. So far the Canucks are 1-2-1 on this road trip with Toronto waiting in the wings on Saturday. However, as a fan base, we are all on the […]
