Meet the Newest Members of the Boston Bruins Cheerleaders: The Boston Media!

After the Canucks thrilling 4-3 win yesterday against the Boston Bruins yesterday, I decided to look for a Boston perspective on the game. What I read was downright frightening. Say what you want about Vancouver’s media, but they don’t openly bend the truth to any degree that they do in Boston. It seems as though […]

Why Aren’t the Bruins the Most Hated Team in the NHL?

I’m not sure when exactly this began, but it’s pretty clear that the Vancouver Canucks are the most hated team in the NHL. We got more evidence of this when the recently retired Mark Recchi decided to offer this up: (In) 22 years they are the most arrogant team I played against and the most […]

The Canucks Aren’t Good Enough 5-on-5

Something that hasn’t received enough attention until only recently is how poor the Canucks have been at 5-on-5 play.

Currently […]

Jennings Trophy, an Art Ross Trophy, and Hart, Selke, Vezina, and Adams Trophy nominations. The highest scoring team in the regular season. The highest scoring defensive corps in the regular season.

THIS Is What We Live For: Stanley Cup Final Game 7

I’m not one to use Canucks marketing campaign slogans on a regular basis (I’ve never said that ‘we are all Canucks’), but never has ‘this is what we live for’ been more true. Game 7, Stanley Cup Final, at home. This IS what we live for. It’s what the players live for, it’s what the fans live for. Quite simply stated, it’s the biggest game in Canucks history. It’s bigger than 1994. There will probably never be a bigger game for this franchise. This is their time. They will become legends if they win, or be labeled as chokers should they come up short.
