Zack Kassian had an excellent start to his first season as an NHL regular in 2013, scoring 6 points in 8 games. He did that playing primarily with the Sedins before being taken off the line by Alain Vigneault. After being taken off the line and amid rumours that Kassian was spending a little too […]
EVERYBODY PANIC!!!! (seriously, we’re in trouble): Riding high after a 4-0 drubbing of the hated Leafs, a tough OT loss in Phoenix, and finally beating the Sharks, it was starting to look like this Canucks team would leave all of us who had wailed about the lack of offensive improvement and derided this team’s chances […]

I’ll be the first to admit: when I heard the news last June that Canucks GM Mike Gillis had hired John Tortorella as coach, I feared an unmitigated disaster.
