The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 1 at Stars 6

This pretty much sums up last night’s 6-1 ass-kicking to the Dallas Stars. Is the nightmare over yet? #Canucks #TGATT — Elmee Garner (@giggling_elms) March 7, 2014

CHB Countdown: Top 5 Reasons Why Keeping Ryan Kesler Was a Good Thing

There are no reasons. HAHAHA! …………….. I’M KIDDING, of course. Chin up, kids. Sure, we’re all a bit shell-shocked at the events that have (or have not) transpired over the past two days but let’s take a deep breath and try to find a silver lining. I’m not going to talk about potential deals. I’m not going to talk about draft picks. I’m not going to talk about prospects, hearsay, speculation, fairy dust. I’m going to talk about what Ryan Kesler, personally, brings to a team with oh so many holes in it. Let me remind you that, without Kesler,...

Game Day Preview Canucks vs Stars: What You See Is What You Get

The NHL trade deadline has come and gone, but you can’t say Canucks fans are clearer about the direction this team is going. Sure trade clouds are no longer looming over the dressing room, and the team you see now is the team you’ll see for the remainder of the season, but can you really see any better what bodes ahead for this group? Maybe the players can revert their attention back to playing hockey. Maybe they’ll actually string together a few wins and inch back up the standings. Maybe they can start scoring more than a goal a game....

The 2014 NHL Trade Deadline Day According to Twitter

Rebuild? Reset? Retool? I feel like going thru a rebuild is a lot like becoming single again. At first it's all exciting and then you realize it sucks. A lot. — Matt Lee (@mattlee980) March 4, 2014 Buckle up, Canucks fans.

Clay’s Canucks Composition: End of the Road (We Thank You, Lu)

After eight memorable and exciting seasons with the Vancouver Canucks, goaltender Roberto Luongo was traded to the Florida Panthers on March 4, 2014. Thus, Marie Hui and I wanted to bid Bobby Lu a proper farewell.  Inspired by Boyz II Men, we proudly present our version of their smash hit “End of the Road”. Make sure you get to bridge of the song at the 3:11 mark…you won’t be disappointed.

Younger fans might not remember the absolute misery the Canucks had in goal after Kirk McLean stood between the pipes. Roberto Luongo was the franchise’s first superstar goaltender.

Thank you, Lu!

Thank you, Lu!

When Bobby Luo took to the ice during the Canucks’ open scrimmage a couple of days ago, it seemed fitting that fans would rain “Luuus” on him one more time.

Deja Vu for Bobby Lu

Deja Vu for Bobby Lu

  Much has been made of Roberto Luongo’s plight here in Vancouver in recent years.  Starting with the Stanley Cup Finals in June 2011, it’s been two and a half years of turmoil, tension, and drama. The Luongo saga took yet another fascinating turn this past weekend when Eddie Lack was named the starter for Sunday’s Heritage Classic game at BC Place versus the Ottawa Senators. Lack played the first game coming out of the Olympic break, shutting out the St. Louis Blues 1-0 on Wednesday night.  Made sense given that Luongo returned to Vancouver from Sochi just a couple...

The Canucks and Selling Hope

The Canucks and Selling Hope

This week could be the most important week for the Vancouver Canucks organization in a long, long time. First, let’s set the background. The Canucks can’t win. They’ve lost 9 of their last 10 games, and have only won 6 games (6-14-4) since Christmas. They can’t score. They’ve managed to score 3 goals in a game just 4 times since the calendar turned to 2014, and their 2.33 goals per game average this season is their lowest since 1999, when their roster included illustrious players like Peter Zezel, Harry York, Bill Muckalt and Darby Hendrickson. The Sedins are having their...

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

Losers of 9 of 10, the Canucks went across the street to BC Place, hoping to get back on the winning track against the Ottawa Senators in the 2014 Heritage Classic. It started off great. There was a lively atmosphere, and even an early 2-0 lead for the good guys, but as has been the refrain the last couple of months, the Canucks blew the lead and ended up on the wrong end of a 4-2 final score. huh, and we thought the Olympic break would help up #TGATT — Jordan Carpanzano (@jordancarp79) March 2, 2014
