Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Extrapolation Edition

The Vancouver Canucks have played 8 games, or basically 10% of their 82-game regular season schedule. While it’s not the best sample size, it’s a sample size nonetheless. More importantly, it makes for some easy math that I can do without a calculator. Now, no one in his/her right mind would suggest that by simply multiplying all of the Canucks’ stats so far by 10 that we’d come up with accurate season-end predictions. But I’m going to do it anyway. Thus, ahead of game #9 – here a few Things That Make You Go Hmmm.   Will the Canucks make...

Canucks Haiku: Unleashing the Power of the 5-7-5

I’ve always appreciated a good haiku. Maybe it’s because I’m half-Japanese (Imoo – pronounced “E-mo” and not “I-moo” – is a Japanese name). Or perhaps it’s because it’s a relatively easy poem to write with its simple structure of 17 syllables broken into lines of 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables. Regardless, the haiku has always resonated with me.

CHB Countdown: Top 5 Reasons Why the Canucks Will Not Make the Playoffs

It is truly hard to pinpoint one reason why the Canucks will be on the outside looking in this spring. It would be unfair to blame their failures on one key thing. So I’m going to go ahead and name five. It’s been an abysmal year for the Canucks and unless some youth is injected into the lineup next season, we may be in store for a few more. The core which seemed so indestructible just two short years ago is imploding and many of the veterans seem nonchalant and indifferent to the failures of this season. Injuries took their toll and the team’s plethora...

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Flames: Has Torts Lost The Room?

The line brawl between the Vancouver Canucks and the Calgary Flames that started their last game. (Photo credit: nhl.com) After an embarrassing 6-1 loss to the Dallas Stars on Thursday night, the Vancouver Canucks return home for a two-game home-stand. They’ve only been away for a week, but, man, has so much happened since the last time they were in town. It’s hard to believe that the Ryan Kesler trade saga, the Heritage Classic goaltending fiasco, and Roberto Luongo’s subsequent trade to the Florida Panthers at the trade deadline all happened in the last week. Welcome home, boys. March 8...

About Last Night: Different Venue, Same Result

(Photo credit: nhl.com) First off, can we talk about Eddie Lack getting the start over Roberto Luongo? Complete lack of respect. Yes, Lack has done well lately, but Luongo is your starting goaltender. He’s shown nothing but class and grace while the team botched their goaltending situation the last couple of years, and he definitely should have played in net today. Honestly, when will Lu get a chance to play in a game like the Heritage Classic again? The game started off great for the Canucks. They took a 2-0 lead in the first 11:27 of the game, and for...
