About Milan Lucic: enough already!

If you weren’t paying attention to Twitter or sports radio today, you’re lucky. It was 2011 all over again with mud slinging all around. And why? The Canucks beat the Bruins 6-2 two nights ago (it feels good to write that), so you would think we could move on to more exciting things than which […]

Milan Lucic gets into an altercation outside a Vancouver nightclub

Apparently the Bruins didn’t leave town immediately after being pummeled 6-2 by the Canucks on Saturday night. Perhaps the only thing more embarrassing than the Bruins performance on the ice was Milan Lucic’s off the ice. But of course nobody could embarrass themselves more than Brad Marchand did.

Hug a Leafs Fan

Hug a Leafs fan today. They’ve been through a lot. Yes, I know about Toronto Maple Leafs fans. They’re rude, they’re cocky. They’re all of that. But you know what? So are a lot of Canucks fans. And that’s why I think I feel for the Leafs fans today. They remind me of Canucks fans.

The Rematch: Canucks Face Bruins on Saturday

What a difference one win can make. Since the Canucks last played the Bruins at Rogers Arena on June 15th of last year, the Boston Bruins had the summer of their lives. Parades, parties and accolades went their way, as it should for the Stanley Cup champions. The Canucks, on the other hand, have had […]

Roberto Luongo: By the Numbers

After a day of listening to irate callers on the Team 1040 today and receiving some nice feedback on my blog from yesterday’s article ‘Why Everyone Hates Luongo’, I think it would be interesting to take a closer look at Roberto Luongo, by the numbers. Everyone has their opinion on Luongo, and there are a […]

Tonight COULD BE the Night! Canucks Look For Their First Stanley Cup – Game 6 Preview

The Vancouver Canucks will get a chance to scratch a 40 year itch if they can find a way to win game 6 in Boston tonight. The Stanley Cup is in the building, and for only the second time in franchise history, the Canucks have a chance to carry it home.

How Can the Canucks Solve Tim Thomas?

We’re now through four games of the Stanley Cup final and the Vancouver Canucks have scored precisely five goals on Bruins netminder Tim Thomas. Of those five goals, only four of them were meaningful (the late goal in game 3 was scored in garbage time). Everyone is blaming Luongo right now (and there is validity to that blame), but they are not going to win this series unless they can score more goals. So this begs the question: how do the Canucks solve Tim Thomas?

A Canucks Rant From A Passionate Fan

Late last night I received an email from my friend Darin. Darin is a die hard Canucks fan, about as die hard as you can get. He watches every game, analyzes every play. He loves the Canucks. But he also takes losing pretty hard. He last ranted this hard during the Chicago series last year. He was remarkably quiet during the first round this year, but after last night, he needed to rant.

The Top Three Stories that Nobody is Talking About Heading into Game 4, Bruins vs Canucks

With all the hoopla surrounding the Aaron Rome hit (and the subsequent suspension) on Nathan Horton, a few stories have been overshadowed. Everyone has had a chance to hash it out by now, so it’s time to move on to the big stories heading into game 4.
