  1. It’s crazy it’s been 12+ years since we drafted CoHo, the 07/08 season was when I was 10 years old and was the first year I could “understand” the league and the game. I remember Bob McKenzie being so happy for Canucks fans it’s a shame how back injuries derailed his career

      I still think there's more here than was revealed to the media. I find it interesting there was no reports in Buffalo of Hodgson being high maintenance. I'm thinking Kelser had a hand in it. Kesler was worried a young centre was going to take away his ice time. Gillis would side with a vet over a rookie. Even if Hodgson's agent/Dad was pestering Gillis. He got suckered by Buffalo into moving him for Kassian. Unless doctors told Gillis that Hodgson's back was deteriorating, in which case that's worse that he used an excuse to try and pawn him off.

      Being so young and naive I genuinely believed he was gonna be our joe Sakic or Stevie Y like the scouts were telling us

  2. I really hope we can get Fanta signed as #7 he reminds me a lot of willie Mitchell,  our d needs a definite rework and would love to see OJ start on bottom pair, and I think Brock is the casualty for getting an upgrade in the top4

  3. Vancouver tattoo shops? Will be in town last week of august looking to get something done

    1. debluvscanucks


      Steveston Tattoo...have to book pretty far in advance though.  My son just had one done in Van and is super happy with it....I'll find out where.

      Dutchman for sure!

  4. Does anyone have any tips for mobilizing the SI joint? I finally got into a chiropractor after week 1/2 of lower back pain and she said I have a seized SI joint. She stretched me out and then said there was pretty much nothing you can do except ice it and see if it loosens up, follow up appt is Wednesday. Was just curious if anyone knows of any methods of stretching or exercises I can do to help. I'm only 21 and take pretty good care of myself so I find it concerning to be having back problems, thanks guys!

      Hey, Logic. Not trying to frighten you at all. My symptoms were very similar to yours and I went nearly ten years before a doctor figured it out. Several chiropractors and physios completely missed it and tried all kinds of things that did not work. I really hope you don't have Ankylosing Spondylitis but talk to a doctor to rule it out. If it does turn out to be AS send me a private message and I can help you deal with any questions or concerns you have, and can point to others who can offer support. Please, please, please see a medical professional; CDC is no substitute for a qualified medical opinion.

    3. I.Am.Ironman


      Curmudgeon, with respect, it is was too early to be investigated for AS. Frankly, it would be a waste of health care resources at this point to get the blood work and xrays. His pain has only been around for 1.5 weeks. If it were months/years then that is a different conversation. I empathize with your story, 10 years is a long time to get a diagnosis. I wish you well

    4. Alflives


      Get a different chiropractor for starters.  Massage therapist first.  

  5. Broberg and Soderstrom are overrated 

  6. JT Miller reminds me of a younger Mikael Samuelsson with more upside

    2. Coconuts


      Ahh yes, triple gold legend Mikael Samuelsson

    3. -AJ-


      Different play styles, but Samuelsson in his prime was definitely a top 6 forward for us.

    4. 6string


      A larger TJ Oshie was my first impression...

  7. Pretty insane to think Crosby has only played 949 games. If he didn't miss 150 games to injuries during the prime of his career he'd very likely almost be at 1500 points by now

  8. regardless what happens with Goldy the Hansen trade was a win for us, as much as I want the kid to succeed sometimes its time to cut losses and move on

      This core needs a Hansen. Tyler Madden, I'm staring in your direction as I write this.

    2. Dazzle


      If Goldobin makes it through, he'll dominate in the AHL. I really hope he gets his career together, regardless of what team he's on. He has so much potential.

  9. Moose knuckle or Canada goose?

      I must be one of the few people in NA that likes Canada geese.  I've never even met a Canadian that does.

    3. NUCKER67


      I ran the 1991 Saskatoon Marathon (dubbed the Canada Goose Marathon), and at around Mile 24 (I was dead, a slow shuffle), when out of the corner of my eye I saw a gaggle heading towards me. Honking away. They actually chased me!  I had to try and pick up my pace, before they got too close, but then they stopped and went back to their business. lol Maybe just the push I needed tio finish the race. Thanks geese!

    2. NUCKER67


      I think the Leafs have lost a lot of grit, and without grit, they aren't a Cup contender.

    3. Pears


      If Boston has bullied them the last couple years, what are they gonna do to them when Jake Muzzin is their only source of toughness/grit?

    4. King Heffy

      King Heffy

      Their defense is going to be absolutely dreadful.  Hainsey was the only guy other than Muzzin who was capable of playing at the NHL level in their own end.  Looking forward to seeing our guys walk around their pylons and ventilating Andersen.  Burke was far too kind.

  11. Pretty cool, my hometown and town I live in prince Rupert is hosting HT hockey on December 9th. Hopefully the rain holds off

      Cool! Smack Ron MacLean and say hi to Tara Sloan for me.

  12. Anyone have any good workout apps? Using iOS

  13. The jackets traded Jakub Voracek & Sean Couturier for Jack Johnson and Marko Dano #Ouch

    1. Nuxfanabroad


      But then the Flyers gave away Sideshow Bob, & signed Mr Universe, Bryzy-G!


      They've sure made their share of head-scratchers.

  14. I would say JB has shown he can be creative and have the balls you need to really change up the team. We're going to have a team that is EXCITING to watch, every game is going to be worth tuning in and I cant wait. The In vs the Out of roster compared to last year is unreal, I would say we've had the best off-season in the NHL along with the Rangers

      Never stop improving. 

    3. combover


      He’s done the same thing every year..... ufa signings Miller vrbata eriksdone ect ect ect.... 


      His team has been nothing short of awful even with the overpriced addition since the day he got here. But everyone better pile on the accolades for how wonderful his bottom dwelling team has been. 

      Keep up the good work Jim if mediocrity has been the goal since he got here then he finally succeed at something. 

    4. Western Red

      Western Red

      Good points logic. We could be the most improved team in the west, possibly the Avs? I dunno.


      Teams going to be beastly with Green driving them all to play to their best. Gonna be a great year! 

  15. Look at the value Tomas Tatar got after 28 points in 62 games

  16. a Bobby Brink and Brock Boeser connection on the wings has a nice ring to it

    1. DontMessMe


      I think he will be gone by 40 :(

  17. Shoulda gave Bo-Sang a chance...

  18. Can someone electronically inclined help me out? I live on the north coast so my internet speed is sub-par at best, recently have had the option to upgrade to a better service but i haven't noticed much results as my router is a 2-3 years old, can someone recommend a new setup for me?

    1. Dazzle


      @logic Did you do any speed tests?

      Are you sharing internet with anyone?
      Do you have apps that you don't know that are in the background? (i.e. BitTorrent, Netflix etc)

      I highly doubt your router's age is an issue. 2-3 is nothing.

  19. Can anyone explain why our 50th season is celebrated as 19-20 but our inaugural season was 70-71?

      I was thinking the same.   


    3. -AJ-


      The lockout makes it funky. It's our 50th year in existence, but 49th season. 

    4. goalie13


      Buffalo is celebrating their 50th as well.

  20. Anyone order from hockey authentic? I see they have an adidas away for $199 wondering if the site is legit

      All good just wanted to suggest some other known places to you. The NHL store is authentic though.

    3. Roberts


      benhsports sells authentic jerseys too I should note. and vanbase isn't completely sold out of jerseys yet.

    4. logic


      sorry I should have put that I'm looking for a Petey Authentic Away

      just walk around Keefer and Pender streets in Chinatown. You'll find everything from awesome $2 bao to great pizza to very high end Chinse-fusion. 

    3. debluvscanucks


      Indian Roti Kitchen or Las Tortas..both on Cambie.  If you're at a game you head South over the Cambie Bridge then keep going up Cambie for a couple of blocks...they're both on the right hand/West side of the street.  


      Las Margaritas in Kits is fun too.  Noisy/cramped though.



    4. I.Am.Ironman


      Quick bite? Chicken Shwarma from Al Basha in kits.. $8 and delish

      Sit down? Tavola on Denman. they have their every day pasta menu but they have a chalkboard menu that isn't posted on their website. The chalkboard menu changes daily depending on what they have in.

      Fine Dining? Le Crocodile on Burrard and Smithe. High end french cuisine but will set you back $100+ per person. One of the best meals of my life.

  22. Looking to go somewhere sunny in November, is Bahamas worth the extra money? Or should I stick to what I know and go back to Cuba? Open to anywhere Safety and food are my main priorities 

    1. CanuckinEdm


      Food is a priority and your going thinking Cuba?

      I would rather Mexico, Jamaica, or Dominican over Cuba

    2. Zhukini


       I didn't really enjoy the Bahamas as much as I thought I would when I went, especially at the cost. If you're thinking about it, I would reccoment the Domincan. 

  23. anyone have advice or tips for going to Bahamas in November

      yes, take me with you. i’m sure there is enough sand there for both of us. when you come back paint us a picture of your time under the sun and moon. cheers.

      Ask Tommy for some shorts. Find a mama to go with. Learn phrases like What da wybe is?

  24. I wonder if high scoring is going to be an anomaly for a season or two as the keepers adjust to smaller pads or if the change will be to great. One thing is for sure, the elite goaltenders are going to standout more with the gear restrictions they have now.

  25. Oliver Wahlstrom 5 points in 14 games @ Boston College ... ouch
