HBO 24/7 Maple Leafs/Red Wings Episode 2 (full video)

Episode 1 of HBO 24/7 was a bit of a disappointment, though definitely still worth watching. Episode 2 had a lot of great moments and lived up to the high standards of the series. I don’t want to spoil anything, so just go ahead and watch. Enjoy:

Rob Predicts Team Canada Olympic Hockey Roster

With only 5 days remaining before 47 of Canada’s best hockey players convene in Calgary, I figured now would be a good time to give my thoughts to how Team Canada will look at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. This “camp” will not resemble a training camp by any means, but will […]

Are the Canucks Tough Enough? The Myth of the Heavyweight and the Role of the 4th Line

There has been a lot of nonsense spewing from the airwaves of the Team 1040 radio station in the last few days.

Henrik for the Hart? NHL Awards Preview

Never before in club history have the Vancouver Canucks had the potential to steal the show on NHL awards night as they do on Wednesday night in Las Vegas (you can see it via tape delay on CBC @ 8:30pm…they wouldn’t want to pre-empt the Road to Avonlea or anything). For the first time ever, a Canuck, Henrik Sedin will win the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s scoring champion. Henrik also has a chance to be only the second Canuck to win the newly named Lindsay Trophy (MVP as voted by the players) and the first to win the Hart Trophy. Ryan Kesler also has a chance to become Vancouver’s first Selke Trophy winner, as he is nominated for the second consecutive season. The chances of the Canucks capturing these awards are open to debate, which is what we’ll do here with Canuckz.com’s preview/prediction of the NHL awards.

Round 2 Playoff Predictions

You asked for it, you got it: your round 2 preview and predictions! So far, Canuckz.com is 6 for 8 in our series predictions (who knew Washington would blow it and Boucher would go Bernie Parent on us?). We nailed the Canucks-Kings series (Canucks in six) and Pens-Sens series (Pens in six). Not bad, but we’re aiming higher this round.
