The Vancouver Canucks turned over about one-third of their roster to start off the 2015-2016 NHL season. Brandon Sutter, Brandon Prust, Matt Bartkowski, Adam Cracknell, and rookies Jared McCann, Ben Hutton, and Jake Virtanen all made the team. So, of course, we decided to sing about it. I’m joined by regular collaborators – the lovely and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao for our version of Maroon 5’s popular song “Sugar”.

The Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings both need the points and they don’t like each other to begin with. This is going to be one heck of a Saturday afternoon. Victoria Pattison Denault recaps the game in your tweets.
Did you hear the subtle sound of quacks downtown today? The Anaheim Ducks are in town! Lizz Moffat recaps the game in your tweets.
Just in time for Christmas, Marie (@mariehui) and I proudly present to you a special compilation of custom Canucks Christmas carols. Hear new takes on old classics like Hansen the Honey Badger (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer), Radim Vrbata (Feliz Navidad), Get it Bo! (Let it Snow!), This Christmas, and Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas. We were absolutely thrilled to work with the Vancouver Canucks on this project and are extremely grateful for the opportunity and for their trust. Special shout out to Paul Albi (@AlbiJr) for all his hard work to make this happen. Also, big thanks to...
Our favorite (and least favorite) NHLers may be a little busy this holiday season so we’d thought we’d pen some Christmas cards for them.
Horvat, drafted 9th overall by the Canucks in 2013, played 54 games with the London Knights last year (30-44-74), and all pre-season games for the Canucks last season. If he doesn’t make the cut this year, back down to the Knights he goes.
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.
We all could have predicted the epic slumps by the Sedins, Burrows, Edler, and Booth right? Well, maybe Booth, but for the most part this year has been a huge surprise and not in a good way. The offence has completely dried up and the players look fatigued, unemotional and simply out of sorts. Management is underfire constantly from the fans and media and change could be coming soon. I, for one, consider this year an anomaly. Typically, when players get into the twilight of their careers, their play simply goes a bit downhill, not right off a cliff. I believe...
Arsenio Hall is back on TV with his talk show, so I guess it’s appropriate that we bring back this Arsenio-inspired feature on CHB. This past weekend, I was at two of the three Vancouver Canucks “Open Scrimmages”. I’ve put a few thoughts together from my observations in this Training Camp edition of Things That Make You Go Hmmm. Who Will Be Our 6th D-Man? First off, I realize that you can only glean so much from a few low-impact training camp scrimmages. And as coach John Tortorella has pointed out already, the proof in the pre-season pudding will be...
