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, […]
Game #3 on the epic Eastern road trip for the Vancouver Canucks brings them to Pittsburgh for a morning tilt with the Penguins. The Penguins have been flying out of the gates with a 6-1 record to start the season. The Penguins are not the Buffalo Sabres so expect the Penguins to actually touch the […]
The Canucks lost their season opener in a shootout last night, but I’d like to focus on something else. There are a lot of changes inside of Rogers Arena. In case you haven’t been there yet this year, lets take a look. New Beer Molson is gone from Rogers Arena. That means that Rickard’s Red […]
Henrik Sedin has made club history by becoming the first Canuck to win the Hart Trophy. He walks away with the Hart and Art Ross trophies but not the Lindsay trophy, that went to Alex Ovechkin. The dream season is now officially complete. A player that nobody thought would be thought of as a top 10 player in the league is not only the Art Ross trophy winner, but the Hart trophy winner as well. A great honour for a true class act.
Breaking news: Henrik Sedin will be nominated for the Hart Trophy as the league’s MVP. He will be joined by Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby on the ballot.

After a long absence (bloggers get caught up in the Olympic hoopla too you know), Canuckz.com is back with a look at the Olympic hockey tournament. Most notably, what’s wrong with Team Canada, and what is head coach Mike Babock going to do about to fix things? Brodeur vs Luongo The pundits have spoken, and they are in almost total agreement: Luongo should start the next game.
So with news of Tiger taking a hiatus from golf because everyone and their daughter has “transgressed” with him, I had a random thought.. If anything remotely like this happened to an NHL star, would anyone (outside of hardcore hockey fans) give a flying crap? What would it take for the mainstream media, and more importantly the National Inquirers and TMZes of the world, to take notice and publish an article or two?
Have you seen the big Pepsi marketing campaign asking for Canadians to submit a new cheer for cheering on Team Canada in 2010? Essentially they wanted Canadians (or customers) to come up with a Canadian equivalent to “U-S-A U-S-A!” or “Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi!!!”. Well, it seems as though they’ve come up with a cheer. Canada, get ready for… “Eh-Oh-Canada-Go“.
