CHB TV: Out of the Playoffs Edition

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!

Clay’s Canucks Commentary: Hooray for Cliches!

The Vancouver Canucks are down three games to zero to the San Jose Sharks in their first-round NHL playoff match-up.  As they try to stave off elimination in this must-win game, I turned to my kids for their predictions. Sean and Kayla are optimistic that the Canucks will still make this a competitive series, and they pulled out every sports cliche possible in expressing their optimism. Meanwhile, Jacob took a more cynical approach as he worked in a few cliches and a bunch of thought-provoking questions regarding the Canucks’ future.

Clay’s Canucks Commentary: Welcome Back, Ryan Kesler

In my first Clay’s Canucks Commentary since my trip to Rome 3 weeks ago, I look at Vancouver’s 2-0 win over Phoenix at Rogers Arena and in particular the return of Ryan Kesler.

Kesler’s return, coupled with the acquisition of Derek Roy at the trade deadline, bolsters the Canucks down the middle and gives some much needed strength and firepower to the forward group overall.

If there is one thing that we at CHB love to do, it’s to have good times with good people. We’ve held tweetups, group games, and for those of you old enough – drunk-ups (even if J.J. doesn’t remember them)! With us filming our next episode of CHB TV this Sunday, we’re breaking out of our usual confines at the Hog Shack Cook House in Steveston and will be heading to the Donnelly Group’s Library Square Public House, centrally located in downtown Vancouver. What’s so exciting about this you ask? And we want you all to join us! (assuming you’re...

Clay’s Canucks Commentary: On Location in St. Peter’s Square

For this special, non-postgame Clay’s Canucks Commentary, I check in from St. Peter’s Square in Rome. Perhaps the Canucks need some Divine Intervention as they battle the Minnesota Wild for the division lead and fight to stay in the top 8 in the Western Conference. In this CCC, I quickly touch on the opportunity that exists for both Cory Schneider and Roberto Luongo to seize the job of “number one goaltender”.  They’ve been playing it down publicly (while joking around about it with James Duthis on TSN) and they’ve both been good in spurts, but not great.  The team is...
