Getting themselves off to a fantastic start in the first 10 minutes of the game two nights ago, Canucks nation held out hope that the team was quickly gelling under John Tortorella. But Vancouver dug themselves a hole, forced to kill off a two-minute 5-on-3 before a handful of turnovers led to two quick Sharks goals. Tonight, Vancouver looks for their first win of the year and have the chance to get it in front of their fans as they host their home opener against the Edmonton Oilers.

Over the years, we at Canucks Hockey Blog have received countless email, tweets, random conversations at games and other such forms of communication from people interested in joining the crazy cast of characters we call CHB. And while the timing hasn’t always been right, we always knew that we’d eventually look to grow. Joyous news folks! That time is now! Do you have what it takes?
In the fifth episode of C4, Chris and Clay are joined by Matt Lee (again) and discuss the Canucks preseason so far, who might make the final roster for the start of the season, the Kassian suspension – including the reaction of Canucks and Oilers fans – and much, much more.

In the third episode of C4, Chris and Clay share their thoughts on the Canucks season ticket holder summer summit, discuss the announcement that Pavel Bure’s jersey is going to be retired, more Roberto Luongo, and another wicked haiku.

While we at CHB have had a video podcast (CHB TV for those who didn’t know) for some time now, we’ve received a piece of recurring feedback – we’re awesome and sure know a lot about the Canucks. Well, there’s that and something about a few of us having fantastic voices for radio. So thinking this through a bit, we decided it was about time to put together our own Canucks podcast. So here it is – Chris and Clay’s Canucks Commentary from Canucks Hockey Blog. Too long of a title you say? Then no problem. We’ll call it C4...
In the 8th episode of CHB TV, Clay, J.J., Ed, and I drown our sorrows while breaking down the Canucks early exit. We also chat about our thoughts on the coaching situation… well… the fact there isn’t a coach let alone the situation. I may have also been pretty darn depressed. Notice – sorry for the Game of Thrones spoilers at the very end!
The Canucks played better in game 2 than they did in game 1, though – and let’s be honest here – that’s not really saying much. Roberto Luongo played great. And so did Ryan Kesler, who unleashed his beast mode in the third period and damn well near stole the Canucks a win. #Canucks lineup for Game 3: 17-17-17, 17-17-17, 17-17-17, 17-17-17; 17-17, 17-17, 17-17; 1 in goal, 17 to backup. #TGATT — Walter Siu (@waterboy99troop) May 4, 2013 Yup, that sounds about right.
In our last episode of CHB TV (which went live yesterday), we found ourselves at an impasse when we asked the question “Who does Zack Kassian look like?” And while our debate was lively, we thought we would leave it up to you our readers to settle the score. So what say you friends of CHB?
