Flukiest goals in Canucks history

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?

Slow News Day – Mason “The Filthy Milt” Raymond re-signed.

“Just because you can skate, it doesn’t mean you’re going to have a successful time out there” – Mason Raymond.

Stay Calm. It’s July 3rd, things will work out.

If there was such thing as a panic button in Vancouver it would be tromped on daily. People would be jumping, both knees touching their chin and landing both feet on to it alerting everyone that the Canucks are a mess and that it is in fact time to panic. This time last year the […]

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 […]

Rumour Time! Could the Canucks Land Tobias Enstrom?

From time to time, I like to make up rumours. They never come to fruition, they completely lack any kind of insider knowledge, but they’re fun to talk about damn it! While watching the Winnipeg Jets get their first win in 16 years tonight, I couldn’t help but think that the Canucks could poach some […]
