Two-Line Pass: Can Cody Keep It Up?

Two-Line Pass: Can Cody Keep It Up?

To: Richard Loat From: Christopher Golden Date: Oct 17, 2011 at 8:50 PM Hey Richard, So how about that Hodgson kid? I know he hasn’t always been a favourite of yours, yet I’m sure you’d even have to admit that he’s begun to look a little better than seasons past. Cody’s been averaging a solid 20 shifts per game during this short span, which translates into approximately 14 – 15mins a game – of that just over two minutes a game on the power play. And with Ryan Kesler coming back into the fray against the Rangers, we’re seeing Hodgson...

Two-Line Pass: Uncertainty

Two-Line Pass: Uncertainty

[Two-Line Pass is a discussion, or even a debate, between two hockey bloggers on some of the hottest topics in Canucks Nation and the NHL.] To: Caylie King From: Christopher Golden Date: Oct 10, 2011 at 11:58 AM Hey Caylie, So… it’s been a while, no? I mean… the last time we were talking we had high hopes for Stanley’s sweet chalice rolling down Robson. Instead, we were left with canisters of tear gas rolling down Robson. Have you even gotten over that misery yet? Although it didn’t end the way we wanted, it’s important to note that short of...

[About the game from two viewpoints. Chris and Caylie watch the game and exchange their thoughts via email.] From: Christopher Golden To: Caylie King Date: Wed, 15 Jun 2011 17:16 Hey Caylie, Game 7. Vancouver. And biggest game in Luongo’s career. He’s gonna bring it. He has too! C. From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Wed, 15 Jun 2011 18:06 Hi Chris, Like many have said, this game will be a huge statement for Luongo. He wasn’t faced with very many shots in the first, but the one he didn’t see went to the back of the net. I...

Not confident (after games 3 & 4 I’m still apprehensive of the TD Gardens) but at peace. Mind you, the puck has yet to drop. C. From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Mon, 13 Jun 2011 17:17 Hi Chris, I was calm until about 3 PM when...

And there are Canada flags all over Rogers Arena. Damn straight. C. From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Fri, 10 Jun 2011 17:44 Hi Chris, What a furious pace to start the game. It seems like the Canucks found their legs on the way back from Boston. I like that we are playing aggressively, DURING PLAY, however we have taken 3...

[About the game from two viewpoints. Chris and Caylie watch the game and exchange their thoughts via email.] From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Wed, 09 Jun 2011 14:48 Hi Chris, There has been so much chatter on social media these last few days about Rome’s suspension, Vancouver fans vs Boston fans, and the word “classless” has been used one too many times. Bottom line it’s all about hockey and the players on the ice. I think this will be a pivotal game in the series, I don’t quite think it’s a MUST win, but to silence the critics...

He Said, She Said: The Rome, The Bad, The Ugly

From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Mon, 06 Jun 2011 17:25 Hi Chris, The game started off furiously, which lead to Horton getting knocked out. Clean hit or dirty play? Caylie From: Christopher Golden To: Caylie King Date: Mon, 06 Jun 2011 17:28 Hey Caylie, I might be in the minority, but I see that as a dirty hit as Rule 48 reads. I do think Horton was admiring his pass, but Rome stands up and point of contact is the player’s head. And no way I wanted to see a player wheeled off the ice. C. From: Caylie...

Canucks Playoff Prize Pack Giveaway

Not often do we continue to bring you our thoughts on the Canucks post-season efforts this late in the year. Normally many of us are simply sitting on the patio, sipping an ice-cold beverage, and talking about what could have been. But this is not just any regular year. Instead, we’re packing into Rogers Arena to watch Home and Away games. Or heading to the patio at noon to save our seat for the 5 o’clock start of this epic Stanley Cup run from our boys in blue. And after, we’re all pouring on to Granville to soak up the...
