CHB PSA: Be A Disturbance On The Ice, Not In The Streets

In honor of our French-Canadian-pests-supreme-turned-first-line-wingers, today’s CHB PSA is brought to you by Maxim Lapierre and Alex Burrows, who have six points between them since they got bumped up to the first line with Henrik Sedin. Burr and Lappy would like to remind you that being a jerk is only okay on the ice…whenever the referee isn’t looking.

CHB PSA: Stan Likes Steam, Not Smoke

CHB PSA: Stan Likes Steam, Not Smoke

I’m guessing some of our younger fans aren’t going to know about Stan Smyl, which is too bad because he meant as much to the franchise from ’78 to ’91 as many of the modern era’s leaders. There’s a reason his jersey is up in the rafters of Rogers Arena. Remember how Trevor Linden scored the Canucks two goals in game seven of the ’94 finals? Smyl had the only one in a 3-1 game four that saw the Islanders, who were a powerhouse compared to the Canucks in 1982, sweep Vancouver. He wasn’t the captain in that run but...

Kassian Has The Intimidation Factor

When Zack Kassian arrived in Vancouver, one of the first words out of his mouth was the following: They’ve got a great team here, and I’m just going to try to be a small piece in a big puzzle. Oh Zack, we all know that’s not going to be possible in this hockey fishbowl. Since he arrived on the scene, fans have been watching closely, scrutinizing and analyzing every little detail of his game. There have been bright moments, like his first three games as a Canuck, where he combined for 16 hits, a goal, and an assist. His fight...

CHB PSA: You Wouldn’t Want To Disappoint Trevor, Would You?

CHB PSA: You Wouldn’t Want To Disappoint Trevor, Would You?

Vancouver seems to want to move away from public gatherings in the city and trying to move people to suburban areas but let’s face it, the downtown core will be packed as long as the Canucks are in the playoffs. So when you’re out there this post-season, we here at CHB would like to remind you to have a great time but that if you do decide to start some trouble, your actions will have consequences. Not only will you make poor Roberto Luongo cry, but you might get a look like this from Trevor Linden. I don’t know about...

Shooting From the Hip with @ajtuliao: Crushing on Cody and Dreaming of Disney

[Every week, Clayton Imoo sits down and talks hockey with a CHB follower and fellow fan. If you’re interested in being featured in “Shooting from the Hip”, send us a tweet at @canuckshockey or @CanuckClay.] Your favourite “get-to-know-someone” blog is back and on its brand new day of Friday!  I was away in LA last week and earlier this week I severed a tendon in my middle finger of my left hand.  But don’t worry…I’m playing hurt just for you:  the loyal CHB readers. This week I chat with Arielle Tuliao.  I met Arielle…get this…through the internet.  Our mutual love...
