Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Bad Booth, Gaudy Goalies and O Canada

[Inspired by Arsenio Hall’s “Things That Make You Go Hmmm…”, Clayton Imoo talks about Canucks-related things that make him go hmmm… You can follow Clay on Twitter at (@canuckclay) or on his website, Clay’s Canucks Commentary.  Clay is also a finalist in the “Replace the KB” blogging competition for the Province and you can see all of his submissions for the contest here.] With back-to-back victories over the Washington Capitals and Calgary Flames last week, it looked as if the Vancouver Canucks were going to put a mediocre October safely in their rear-view mirror.  Well, the Canucks didn’t get too...

A History of Canucks/Panthers Trades: Who the Heck is Jesse Belanger?

A History of Canucks/Panthers Trades: Who the Heck is Jesse Belanger?

When a friend starring at his smartphone told me that the Canucks made a trade with the Florida Panthers, I could swear I saw a glitch in the Matrix. Seriously, this has happened so many times in recent years, it actually does give me some deja vu. The Vancouver-Florida connection continued this past Saturday with news that the Panthers had sent David Booth, Steve Reinprecht and a third-round draft pick in the 2013 draft (which is the same pick the Canucks sent to Florida at the deadline last year for Chris Higgins) in exchange for Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm....

A Change of Scenery

One of the things that’s impressed me about Canucks GM Mike Gillis is his ability to be patient when he needs to be, and urgent when he wants to be. At the time you expect him to make the biggest moves he stands pat. Then he surprises everyone by trading Marco Sturm and Mikael Samuelsson for David Booth, Steven Reinprecht and the 3rd round pick that he traded to acquire Chris Higgins. With the arrival of Booth comes a flood of potential. High risk, high reward. That’s what you get with him. There’s no doubt a new environment will hopefully...

In this episode of the CHB TV video podcast, Matt Lee, J.J. Guerrero and Richard Loat discuss the trade that brought David Booth, Steven Reinprecht and a 2013 3rd round draft pick from the Florida Panthers to the Canucks in exchange for Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm.

If you were one of those Canucks fans that wanted to be unique and get a Marco Sturm jersey, you might want to tell the Canucks Team Store to cancel your order. Canucks general manager Mike Gillis apparently does care about what other people say about his team, and the critics’ longstanding issues about Vancouver’s lack of a second-line winger can now be silenced, at least for now. The team announced shortly after their win against the Minnesota Wild that they had made a four-player trade with the Florida Panthers, sending the oft-injured Mikael Samuelsson and the ineffective Marco Sturm...

Out of Town Notebook: Surprising Habs, Surging Sabres, Slumping Sens, Waffles and More

Out of Town Notebook: Surprising Habs, Surging Sabres, Slumping Sens, Waffles and More

[Every weekend, Canucks Hockey Blog goes out of town as Tom Wakefield (@tomwakefield88) posts his thoughts on what’s happening around the NHL.] It’s hard to imagine Bob Gainey laughing. A Google image search confirms even smiles are hard-fought, often-lost battles in the corners of his mouth. Yet Bob Gainey has a lot to smile and laugh about. This Montreal Canadiens team – a team he essentially re-built in the summer of 2009, then handed off to current GM Pierre Gauthier – is a pretty good one. Making things all-the-more sweet is that Gainey essentially built this team in the face...
