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.
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…Click here to read more.
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…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.
Just when you thought the Canucks were kinda, sorta looking like they at least gave two shits about the rest of the season, they pulled off another stinker last night. With their 5-1 loss to the Ducks – combined with the Wild and the Stars’ wins – the Canucks are now 5 points back of the final wild card playoff spot, with only 6 games to go.

And we were so optimistic after last night’s game, eh? But now, after the Canucks’ 3-2 OT loss to the Colorado Avalanche, and the Phoenix Coyotes’ win over the New Jersey Devils, those slim playoff hopes we’re all clinging to are getting even slimmer. The Coyotes need 9 points in their last 8 games, the Minnesota Wild need 8 points in their last 8 games, and the Canucks’ season will come to a merciful end. So long playoffs!
