I look at the good, the bad, and the interesting from the Canucks’ 3-2 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks from Tuesday, March 5 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The game between these two evenly-matched opponents started off a tad slowly but certainly picked up as the game entered the second-half of the second period and beyond. In the video, I touch on the Sedins, Jannik Hansen, the Canucks’ compete level, Alex Edler, our power-play, Keith Ballard’s return (and injury), and overtime shots on goal.

I hope everyone got off work in time, because this game is not waiting for you. Seriously, they’re not waiting for anyone, not even Eddie Lack.
Are you ready for this? I hope so, because it’s Canucks v. Blackhawks baby!
Doesn’t it feel like we were just here? After a full day of NFL playoffs, we’re right back into hockey mode. Let’s just hope tonight’s game goes a little better than last night’s. I mean, it can’t get any worse, right?
Tequila game prep. This will be great, or horrible. It’s all up to the boys in blue. #Canucks #TGATT
The collective Canucks fan base can breathe a sigh of relief, Alex Edler doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere. Vancouver general manager Mike Gillis abruptly announced (over Twitter!) that the Canucks have locked up the defenseman to a six-year contract extension, worth $30-million. That means the silky blueliner will be making $5-million per season. It also means that he becomes Vancouver’s highest-paid defenceman, but perhaps that was to be expected. With all due respect to his teammates Kevin Bieksa, Dan Hamhuis, and Jason Garrison (we’ve omitted Keith Ballard’s name for obvious purposes), Edler still has immense upside compared to them....
