Ottawa Senators v Vancouver Canucks 0

Player of the Week: Daniel Sedin

It’s a bit of a weird week because the Canucks only played twice in the last seven days, and in the last one they played last Friday, they were blown out 5-0 by the worst team in the Western Conference, the Arizona Coyotes. Seriously, the worst. So, unfortunately there isn’t a lot to draw from there, but we’ll always have Daniel Sedin’s glorious winner at 4:05 of overtime on November 11th against the Ottawa Senators.

California Dreams – November 11, 2014

With Matt in studio and Chris by phone, the boys pick apart the Canucks recent four game road trip and lay it all on the line. Even beating the optimism shared by Clay in the last episode, the Canucks acquired 6 of a possible 8 points. Was that enough to sway pessimists Chris and Matt? And has the Kesler trade now become the Bonino trade? Better yet, with injuries beginning to pile up, how will the Canucks fare and who will take Vrbata’s place on the top line with the Sedins? You’ll have to listen to find out! California Dreams...

Player of the Week: Jim Benning

Personally speaking, as a full-fledged Canucks fan since the West Coast Express era, it’s the first time I can recall there ever being so many new additions to the team being such vital parts to the team so early on in the season.  It’s a strange and wondrous feeling, and I feel like this week I should be talking about another new addition to team, albeit in a different fashion — Mr. Jim Benning, ladies and gentleman.

Today I Read: About Ference, Foolishness, and Fancy Stats

The NHL suspended Edmonton Oilers captain, Andrew Ference, for 3 games following his headshot on Zack Kassian. On its own, that probably sounds fair.

In fact, he’s been suspended twice recently for dangerous hits – in other words, he’s exactly the league’s definition of a repeat offender.

Player of the Week: Linden Vey

In 12 games so far this season, Vey’s got 4 goals and 2 assists — for a total of 6 points  — with two of those goals coming in the last week. And, with 4 goals to his name this season, if he were still on the LA Kings, that’d put him as the fourth-leading goal scorer on the team.  So, uh, thanks, LA! (And no, you can’t have him back.)
