Things That Make You Go Hmmm: New Player Edition

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.

Clay’s Canucks Composition: I’ll Show Glove to You (Boyz II Men Parody)

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.

Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Pre-Preseason Edition

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.

Clay with Charly (MJ) and Joseph

Clay’s Canucks Composition: Willie is Here/Willie D (Michael Jackson Parody)

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…

Clay’s Canucks Composition:  Jimmy B – Parody of The Beatles’ “Let it Be”

Clay’s Canucks Composition: Jimmy B – Parody of The Beatles’ “Let it Be”

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...

Clay’s Canucks Composition:  Trevor (Parody of Bruno Mars’ “Treasure”)

Clay’s Canucks Composition: Trevor (Parody of Bruno Mars’ “Treasure”)

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,...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 5 vs. Flames 1

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 5 vs. Flames 1

In typical 2013/2014 Canucks fashion, the Canucks ended their train wreck of a season with a 5-1 plastering of the Calgary Flames. I mean, 5 of their 36 wins this season were against the Flames. Thanks for a [insert adjective here] season, @VanCanucks! It's . . . been . . . fun? #Canucks #TGATT — gladys (@gloomybb) April 14, 2014 Like this:Like Loading…

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 vs. Avs 4

In the Canucks’ first game in the Trevor Linden as President era, they lost 4-2 to the Colorado Avalanche and slipped to 12th place in the Western Conference, just ahead of the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers. On the bright side, as it stands right now, they look to be on track for another top 9 pick in this year’s NHL Entry Draft. Yay? #Canucks #TGATT — gladys (@gloomybb) April 11, 2014 Like this:Like Loading…
