The Canucks host the Edmonton Oilers in their home opener and come away with thrilling, come from behind 5-4 shootout win. We recap the game in your tweets.
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.

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.

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.
Chris and Matt connect for episode 24 of C4 and are joined by special guest Bruce Dowbiggin to chat about his new book Ice Storm: The Rise and Fall of the Greatest Vancouver Canucks Team Ever, “the incendiary inside story behind the Canucks’ meteoric ascent and tragic collapse.” Bruce gives us insight in how the book to came to be, reveals what he feels took the team to the peak of success and also gives us a hint on what caused it all to fall apart.
