Zack Kassian needs to play with Henrik and Daniel Sedin

Zack Kassian had an excellent start to his first season as an NHL regular in 2013, scoring 6 points in 8 games. He did that playing primarily with the Sedins before being taken off the line by Alain Vigneault. After being taken off the line and amid rumours that Kassian was spending a little too […]

It’s time to re-sign Mike Santorelli

Mike Santorelli had a heck of game again on Sunday night against the Avalanche. The 27 year old Burnaby boy was named the first star (more importantly, he was given the Haida Gwaii hat) after scoring two goals and an assist, leading the Canucks to a 3-1 win over the Avs. Santorelli’s strong game is […]

“Dale Weise can’t find his helmet” – NHL Revealed is going to be awesome

The Canucks and Senators will be playing in the Heritage Classic at BC Place on March 2nd, as part of the NHL’s “stadium series”. As with the Winter Classic, the best part of the game isn’t the game at all. It’s the TV Show that accompanies the game. HBO 24/7 has been must watch television […]

The Canucks power play, beyond the numbers

Don’t look now, but the Canucks have quietly put together a six-game string of games in which they have scored a power play goal. Looking at it “in-depth”, they were only able to score six goals in that stretch, but they did so with only 24 power plays, meaning they scored on 25% of their […]

Five ways to fix the Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks lost 3-2 in overtime on Monday night after outworking, out-shooting (39-22) and out-chancing the Kings. This was despite being the more desperate team, having home ice advantage and playing a backup goalie (albeit a capable backup who is red hot right now). After the most gut wrenching loss in recent memory last night […]

Alex Burrows and the reputation call

A funny thing happened near the end of the Canucks-Stars game tonight. With time ticking down and the Canucks pressing for the equalizing goal, it was chaos in front of Dallas Stars goal. Crosschecks, holding and interference galore, as both teams were in desperation mode. And then it happens, Alex Burrows gets called for the […]

Stu’s Reality Check

EVERYBODY PANIC!!!! (seriously, we’re in trouble): Riding high after a 4-0 drubbing of the hated Leafs, a tough OT loss in Phoenix, and finally beating the Sharks, it was starting to look like this Canucks team would leave all of us who had wailed about the lack of offensive improvement and derided this team’s chances […]

Myth busting John Tortorella

We are now more than a quarter of the way through the 2013-14 season and I think it’s an appropriate time to do a bit of myth busting with regards to John Tortorella. Fans, media and players all seem generally impressed by what Tortorella has done thus far, which is a far cry from the […]

The Canucks record in the Mike Gillis era, by the numbers

For readers of this blog, it’s no secret that I’m a Mike Gillis supporter. I generally think he has been good for the Vancouver Canucks and think he has unfairly gotten a lot of bad publicity for various reasons. I made my case for the argument that he “inherited” this team and outlined his biggest contribution […]
