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...

When Musical Bloggers Unite: Someone Like Lu

A couple of weeks ago, CHB favourite Marie Hui and I put together a tribute song to Roberto Luongo when he was traded to the Florida Panthers.  We performed Boyz II Men’s smash hit “End of the Road“. Well, it seems like I’m not the only blogger who likes to write songs about Bobby Lu.  Harrison Mooney of Pass it to Bulis penned a farewell song to Luongo to the tune of Adele’s mega-hit “Someone Like You.”  Harrison contacted me to help him with the music and within 5 seconds we had agreed to invite Marie to join us. The...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 4 vs. Panthers 3 (SO)

Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? The Canucks stroll into Florida, face Roberto Luongo and the Panthers, blow a late lead, and then win a shootout. Again, the kids – especially Nicklas Jensen and Eddie Lack – played well. All things considered, I guess we can’t ask for more than that. Thing 3 triumphs over Thing 1 with a goal from Jensen and big saves from the Stork. #welldonegrasshopper #TGATT #CanucksvsLuongo — doubleLuonGOLD (@luonGOLD) March 16, 2014

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Panthers: It’s All About Lu

(Photo credit: windsorstar.com) The Vancouver Canucks will take on the Florida Panthers in a noon time matinee today. On this road trip so far, they’re 1-1-0, and finish off with a back-to-back today and tomorrow night against the Tampa Bay Lightning. But despite every point being so crucial to the Canucks, despite every remaining game of the season being a make-or-break game – and you can throw every other cliche out here – today, forget everything else. All everyone wants to talk about is facing long-time face of the franchise and winningest goaltender in Canucks history, Roberto Luongo, since he...

Clay’s Canucks Composition: End of the Road (We Thank You, Lu)

After eight memorable and exciting seasons with the Vancouver Canucks, goaltender Roberto Luongo was traded to the Florida Panthers on March 4, 2014. Thus, Marie Hui and I wanted to bid Bobby Lu a proper farewell.  Inspired by Boyz II Men, we proudly present our version of their smash hit “End of the Road”.

Deja Vu for Bobby Lu 0

Deja Vu for Bobby Lu

  Much has been made of Roberto Luongo’s plight here in Vancouver in recent years.  Starting with the Stanley Cup Finals in June 2011, it’s been two and a half years of turmoil, tension, and drama. The Luongo saga took yet another fascinating turn this past weekend when Eddie Lack was named the starter for Sunday’s Heritage Classic game at BC Place versus the Ottawa Senators. Lack played the first game coming out of the Olympic break, shutting out the St. Louis Blues 1-0 on Wednesday night.  Made sense given that Luongo returned to Vancouver from Sochi just a couple...
