AV’s Shootout Strategy Needs Some Help

Thanks to sweet moves of Zack Kassian in the shootout last night, the Canucks won their first game of the season.

The Curious Case of Mason Raymond

Mitch has been blogging faster than I can post lately. ‘Mitch the blog machine’ is what I call him. You can call him @Mitch_SBMedia on Twitter. Last week the Vancouver Canucks decided to take Mason Raymond to club elected “cut-down” arbitration. What’s cut-down arbitration? You’re asking that like last week was the first time you […]
