Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Raymond’s Return and An Unlikely Catalyst 1

Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Raymond’s Return and An Unlikely Catalyst

[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.] Photo credit: thescore.com It’s been two weeks since my last post here at Canucks Hockey Blog.  In that time I found out that I wasn’t chosen to Replace the KB for The Province (read my thank you blog here), I channeled my inner-Shawn Stockman for last week’s CHB TV video podcast, and I attended the Grey Cup (and was interviewed for the CBC National...

Ranted: Since when was a broken back something to cheer about, Boston?

Ranted: Since when was a broken back something to cheer about, Boston?

Gutless – lacking courage or determination. Unclassy – lacking in good taste or sense; crude. Both of these terms have been tossed back and forth between the Vancouver and Boston camps since the beginning of the Stanley Cup Final. They’ve been used so often and so stupidly that for many people, the words have lost their venom. Even the supposedly “unbiased” media is jumping on the wagon of name-calling, labelling the Sedin Twins “Thelma and Louise” (Mike Milbury, NBC/Versus) or calling the Canucks a bunch of classless, gutless brutes (Barry Rozner, Daily Herald). It’s pretty apparent that the Canucks and...

Canucks Review and Preview: March 21 to March 27, 2011

[Every Sunday, Caylie King looks at the Canucks week that was and the Canucks week ahead. You can follow Caylie on Twitter (@cayking).] Canucks Record 73 GP, 47-17-9, 103 points (1st in Northwest Division, 1st in Western Conference) Who’s Hot Captain Henrik Sedin has done a commendable job of keeping up with brother Daniel in the NHL scoring race. He’s scored in 7 of his last 8 games and has 11 points (2G – 9A) in that stretch. It doesn’t look like he’ll reach his career-high, franchise-record of 112 points that he set last season, whilst winning the Hart and...

Out of Town Notebook: Rebuilds and Playoff Races

[Every weekend, Canucks Hockey Blog goes out of town as Tom Wakefield (@tomwakefield88) posts his thoughts on what’s happening around the NHL.] THOUGHTS ON THE FLY Gotta give it to Bryan Murray – he’s an entertaining, horse-trading general manager in a league where many front offices are afraid to make deals. However, his off-season plans for the team, as expressed to local media this week, have to concern Sens fans. Quick fixes won’t get the job done, and players selected in the first round aren’t always ready to play in the NHL right away. As a courtesy for Sens fans,...

Ask Katie about the Canucks: Does size matter?

[Every Monday, Katie Maximick takes your questions and gives her take on the Canucks in her own cantankerous style. If you have any questions about the Canucks, send it to her via Twitter (@KMaximick)] Photo credit: canucks.nhl.com Happy Monday, Canucks fans. There were some ups and downs this weekend in the world of the Canucks. The Bruins took down the Canucks on Saturday night. And then on Sunday the team delighted thousands of fans at Rogers Arena during the Superskills competition. Sunday’s antics couldn’t erase Saturday’s loss, however, and many fans are still talking about the Bruins’ size being a...

Canucks Review and Preview: February 28 to March 6, 2011

[Every Sunday, Caylie King looks at the Canucks week that was and the Canucks week ahead. You can follow Caylie on Twitter (@cayking).] Canucks Record 63 GP, 39-15-9, 87 points (1st in Northwest Division, 1st in Western Conference) Who’s Hot When the Canucks signed Manny Malholtra to a 3-year/$7.5 million contract in the summer, no one expected him to be one of the top scorers of the team. He was signed for his faceoff domination, penalty-killing and veteran leadership. But no matter what anyone says, scoring goals and getting points is one of the best parts of the game. After...

Trade Deadline Thoughts: Will the real Mason Raymond please stand up? 0

Trade Deadline Thoughts: Will the real Mason Raymond please stand up?

(with contributions from Richard Loat and J.J. Guerrero) Since his hat trick against the Calgary Flames on December 1st, Mason Raymond has 3 goals in 27 games. And with only a few days left until the trade deadline, the heat is starting to build around him. On the surface, it’s easy to say that May Ray is having an off-year. A 25-goal scorer last season, he’s on pace for only 14 this year. Part of this is because he played through shoulder and wrist injuries during the early part of the season. Another part is because he was sidelined by...

The Grabner Trade Revisited 2

The Grabner Trade Revisited

Let’s pause for a minute before we call Michael Grabner the next great Canucks prospect that got away. With his hat trick yesterday, Grabner now has 24 goals for the season, including 15 goals in his last 14 games. Today, he was named the NHL’s 1st Star of the Week. So did the Canucks give up on him too early? Maybe. Maybe not. To be honest, Grabner wasn’t on the Canucks’ long-term plans. It was clear they valued Mason Raymond more than they valued the former first-round draft pick when they worked out a two-year contract extension with Raymond just...
