2013/2014 NHL Season Preview: Central Division

On the eve of the start of the 2013/2014 NHL regular season, I preview the 30 teams, one division at a time. Photo credit: Grantland Chicago Blackhawks The Good The Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in 2013, and may very well have a chance at a repeat performance. After all, they retained much of their players, with Dave Bolland perhaps the only significant subtraction from the roster. Brandon Saad, Nick Leddy and Marcus Kruger all seem ready to take on more responsibility. The Bad Especially with the hard salary cap and increased parity, it’s pretty darn tough to repeat in...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 1 at Stars 5

Against another potential playoff opponent, the Canucks collapsed once again last night. This time around, they allowed 4 goals in the third period and lost 5-1 loss to the Dallas Stars. The forwards were bad, and the defense was especially bad. Get well soon, Kevin Bieksa and Chris Tanev. We need you back.

Canucks at Stars Game Day Preview: So Much for “Not Winning for Mackinnon”

While the Canucks’ performance on Tuesday against the St. Louis Blues was admirable – they certainly held their own against a much more physical Blues team – they certainly have some more work to do before the playoffs begin. For starters, regardless of their injury list, they need to be able to generate more offense. They need to dictate more of the play instead of just absorbing hit after hit after hit, and giving up as many scoring opportunities as they did. The point was nice, but let’s face it – Cory Schneider was the reason they got that point....

You Be The Judge: Canucks Acquire Derek Roy From Dallas Stars

Not that GM Mike Gillis needed to be reminded of the Canucks’ lack of depth at center, but just to be sure, it was put in plain view in their 3-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks last night. Alain Vigneault tried Alex Burrows, Chris Higgins and his pack of gum at center. Even Henrik Sedin took some defensive zone faceoffs, which, if you’re aware of the team’s use of zone starts, flies in the face of their *ahem* process.

CHB TV: Milestones, Manny and Music

On Friday, Henrik Sedin passed Markus Naslund as the all-time leader with points as a Canuck, Ryan Kesler returned from injury, and Canucks fans were getting a chance to vote on what they felt the boys in blue should skate out to. Clay, Chris, Ed and back again as a special guest, Alan from the Hogshack in Steveston, ponder these and more in this latest episode of CHB TV. Apologies in advance for the singing.

Canucks Review and Preview: February 18 to 24, 2013

Without a doubt, the highlight of the last week was Henrik Sedin passing Markus Naslund as the Canucks’ franchise scoring leader. Against the Stars on Friday, King Hank assisted on brother Daniel’s goal to tie Naslund, and a bit later in the game, passed Naslund with a beautiful cross-ice assist on Alex Burrows’ marker.
