The Vancouver Canucks play the Pittsburgh Penguins in a Tuesday night 7:00pm PST game at Rogers Arena. The game will mark the first time Sidney Crosby has played on Vancouver ice since the 2010 Olympics. The Canucks will be looking to avenge an October 19, 2013 4-3 shootout loss vs the Penguins and, more importantly, […]
The Vancouver Canucks look to make it 5 straight wins in a row with a 7pm PST Monday night match-up vs the Carolina Hurricanes. These home games vs Eastern Conference opponents are must wins with the Canucks needing every point possible to stay competitive in the Pacific Division (aka – the Division of Death).
The Canucks lost to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night due in large part to one of the luckiest/flukiest goals of all-time. That had me thinking, where exactly does this rank all-time in Canucks history?
Great stuff here from Kevin Bieksa. Apparently a reporter in Los Angeles (Mike Dunsmore from Fox Sports) thought he was Ryan Kesler, so he just went with it.
Ed Willes wrote a nice little column in the Province today about how Rogers Arena is a quiet place to play hockey right now. This caused quite the ruckus on Twitter after the Team 1040 piggybacked on the article, as they often do. I think every show on the Team 1040 had a poll question […]
Kevin Bieksa, don’t ever change. Apparently Bieksa’s teammates bet him to find a way to say “milk hot dogs” during his interview with Dan Murphy the other day. Bieksa won $300. Watch the video here.
Don Cherry did something that he rarely does on Coach’s Corner yesterday, he talked about the Vancouver Canucks. Cherry said the Canucks weren’t paying the price (actually he said ‘playing the price’, but we know what you meant Don). He also said that people were unfairly pointing the finger at Roberto Luongo (actually, he said […]
Radio, print and Twitter was abuzz the day after this hit by Marc Methot of the Columbus Blue Jackets on Canucks captain Henrik Sedin: So cue the debate: are the Canucks tough enough? This debate is of course in response to the fact that the Canucks did not engage Marc Methot in a fight and […]
This Friday is one of the most exciting days of the year for hockey fans, July 1st, the start of free agent season! Only trade deadline day and the draft (especially this year with Jeff Carter and Mike Richards getting traded) can come close to matching the intrigue of July 1st. Last year Mike Gillis signed Dan Hamhuis, Manny Malhotra and Jeff Tambellini on the first day of free agency. The previous year Gillis re-signed Daniel and Henrik Sedin, just hours before July 1st.
Due to the Canucks long playoff run, the team is in for a very short offseason. The NHL entry draft is in four days and free agency begins in only eleven days. Mike Gillis has some work to do, as all GMs do. Luckily for the Canucks, most of their core is locked up long term, but there are a few key players that will become restricted free agents. Kevin Bieksa, Christian Ehrhoff, Sami Salo, Andrew Alberts, Raffi Torres, Chris Higgins, Tanner Glass and Jeff Tambellini are all unrestricted free agents on July 1st. Maxim Lapierre, Jannik Hansen, Victor Oreskovich and Alex Bolduc are all restricted free agents.
