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 […]

The Twitter Life of Jeff Paterson

A week ago I wrote a brilliant piece to show how the Vancouver Sports Media is overly negative.  I thought I had put this topic to bed, but I started noticing an interesting trend with the tweets of Jeff Paterson (@patersonjeff) before and during the Canucks game vs the Colorado Avalanche.

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 […]
