CHB Contest: Win Canucks vs. Jets Suite Tickets!

As a generous group of fans, us here at CHB started to think of a way to give back to our loyal readers, listeners, and viewers and wondered what we could do to help up the ante a little?

We’re giving away a pair of prime 500 Level tickets to the Canucks vs. Jets...

Lyte Display – Canucks Hockey Mo

Never shirking our chance to sport some facial hair or do a solid for a charitable cause, November is always an exciting time for most of us at Canucks Hockey Blog. Sure the majority of us only dream of rocking an epic quality crumb catcher like Tom Selleck can, but that doesn’t mean we can’t give it a try for a month. For those that haven’t heard, November is now forever known as Movember, where men and women sport a Mo (real, fake or otherwise) in an effort to draw attention to a number of men’s health issues. A month-long...

We give our thoughts on how the Canucks performed during their epic road trip of 2013, use our fake MD diplomas to discuss the recent spate of injuries, and share both our thoughts and those of our listeners on what favourite memories we have of Pavel Bure as a Canuck.

Lyte Display – Alex Edler’s Hit on Tomas Hertl

If you’ve been off social media for the past couple of hours, you’ve likely missed the news that Alex Edler has been handed a 3 game suspension for the “illegal check to the head” of Tomas Hertl in last night’s game. And I’m likely about to say something that will upset a fair number of you. I think three games for Edler is reasonable. While there is considerable debate to the legality of Edler’s hit itself – of note there was no call on the ice at the time – it’s hard to argue with Brendan “Banahammer” Shanahan’s assertion in...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 5 vs. Flames 4 (OT)

Welcome to the second TGATT of the Canucks 2013/14 season. Well, really it should’ve been the third by J.J. decided it was a good idea to get all hooped up on mai tais in Hawaii and dropped the ball! Talk about letting down the team, eh? Anyhow, what did we expect from the Canucks last night? The lackluster effort like we saw in San Jose or the beating we saw them lay against the Oilers at home Saturday? Didn't want to say it, but saw that coming. #canucks — Linds (@feedmehappy) October 7, 2013 Sure you did.
