In his first forays with the Sedins, Radim Vrbata has looked very comfortable playing with the twins. Like extremely comfortable. As if he was a third Sedin brother. They seem to have a natural chemistry on the ice. And there is nothing wrong with adding a shooter to a line that has Henrik as its centre.Click here to read more.

For the start of the Vancouver Canucks’ 2014-2015 NHL season, I wrote a song about likely their strongest position on the team: the goaltenders. I’ve written songs about Canucks goalies in the past, including End of the Road (We Thank You, Lu) and Against All Odds (Luongo’s Lament) so I thought I would continue the tradition.Click here to read more.
While Arsenio Hall’s talk show comeback was short-lived – it only lasted a year – I’m pleased to write this Arsenio-inspired feature on CHB for the 5th year. Every week, I’ll take a look at elements of the Canucks – whether it be games, incidents, players, and/or management – that may make us wonder and ask questions.Click here to read more.
On Tuesday, TSN’s Bardown website posted a blog about a survey that some Reddit users had conducted asking hockey fans throughout the world to name their most hated hockey team.Click here to read more.
We made songs for new Canucks’ President Trevor Linden and new Canucks’ GM Jim Benning…so rightfully new Canucks’ head coach Willie Desjardins deserved a song as well. Thus, we proudly present to you a quick mash-up of two Michael Jackson songs: “Will You Be There” and “Billie Jean”. Our versions are “Willie is Here” and “Willie D”. I’m joined once again by my good friend Joseph San Jose and our MJ look-alike is Charly Pimentel making his CCC debut. Like this:Like Loading…Click here to read more.
Last week, Canucks’ President Trevor Linden named Jim Benning (affectionately referred to as “Jimmy B” for the purposes of our video) as the 11th General Manager in franchise history. As soon as the hire was officially announced, a few of my Twitter friends had song suggestions for me. But Steve May went one step further: he wrote an entire song and sent the lyrics to me. Thus, I proudly present to you my latest Clay’s Canucks Composition: “Jimmy B” an ode to new General Manager Jim Benning to the tune of The Beatles’ classic “Let it Be”. As always, I’m...Click here to read more.
Last week, Trevor Linden was named President of Hockey Operations of the Vancouver Canucks. Arguably the most-popular player in the history of the franchise, Linden’s hiring ushers in a new era for the team. Thus, as with any big Canucks development, I wrote a song about it. Inspired by “Treasure” by Bruno Mars, we proudly present to you my latest Clay’s Canucks Composition: “Trevor” — a song that pays homage to the new President. I’m blessed to be joined by four wonderfully talented friends, all of whom have appeared in previous videos of mine: Marie Hui, Arielle Tuliao, Oggy Luistro,...Click here to read more.
I was at Rogers Arena last night to see the Vancouver Canucks lose 3-0 to the visiting Anaheim Ducks. It’s crazy to think that just three short years after witnessing the Canucks clinch their first-ever Presidents’ Trophy (on March 31, 2011), I was watching them being eliminated from playoff contention for the first time since the 2007-2008 season. With three minutes to go in the third period, a very audible “Fire Gillis” chant broke out in the arena and it went on for a considerable amount of time. Obviously, the Canuck faithful are restless and are demanding a change –...Click here to read more.
A couple of weeks ago, CHB favourite Marie Hui and I put together a tribute song to Roberto Luongo when he was traded to the Florida Panthers. We performed Boyz II Men’s smash hit “End of the Road“. Well, it seems like I’m not the only blogger who likes to write songs about Bobby Lu. Harrison Mooney of Pass it to Bulis penned a farewell song to Luongo to the tune of Adele’s mega-hit “Someone Like You.” Harrison contacted me to help him with the music and within 5 seconds we had agreed to invite Marie to join us. The...Click here to read more.
I’ve always wanted to play the organ at a Vancouver Canucks game. And when I go to watch the Canucks play at Rogers Arena, I like to take in the sights and sounds of the entire arena experience – and not just the game itself. As a musician, I pay particular attention to the music: both from the DJ and from the organ. And I’ve come up with a medley of songs that I typically hear at Canucks games. You’ll see it’s a nice mix of hockey standards (chants and cheers) and actual pop songs. The timing of my O...Click here to read more.
