They’re just not good enough: Canucks get swept by San Jose

It was one of the most disappointing first round series in Canucks history and not just for obvious reasons. The Canucks didn’t lose to the Sharks because of a bad bounce (of which there were a few) or bad penalties (of which there were lots). No, they lost because they weren’t good enough. This was […]

Playoff Time! Sharks vs Canucks 1st Round Preview

One year ago, the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings played each other in the final game of the regular season and the Sharks won 3-2, giving the Canucks the Kings in round 1. This year, the opposite happened. The Kings beat the Sharks in their final game (by the same 3-2 score) to […]

The 2012 Canucks Playoff Run – Where did it all go wrong?

After a second straight President’s Trophy, not many predicted the Canucks would be gone in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Even if they play excellent in the next four games, they’ll still need some luck. But right now everyone […]

What Happened??! Canucks vs Kings Game 3 Preview

I think the whole city of Vancouver is wondering what in the world is happening to our beloved Canucks right now. It’s been a long time since we have seen the Canucks start a playoff series 2-0 (11 years in fact). The Canucks do not look like a powerhouse team whatsoever. They look like a […]

What the Canucks need to fix ahead of Game 2

First let me start off by apologizing to the hockey gods. This is not the first time I have apologized to them. I first apologized to them after game 6 versus Chicago last season. I apologized because I wrote that we should ‘get our brooms ready’ and that the ‘writing was on the wall‘. Then […]

So I watched Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final again last night…

I’m not sure if I just wanted to torture myself or if this is part of the healing process, but I watched game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final again on the weekend. I have the game on my PVR, along with a few other notable games from last year’s playoff run (game 7 vs […]
