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....

Just The Facts About Luongo

Just The Facts About Luongo

Photo credit: canucks.nhl.com I don’t know what I was expecting when I read Katie’s rant the other day on how unfair and silly the early calls for Luongo’s head are. Here I was thinking that people who read it and think “Oh, maybe we are being a little unfair… I mean, the guy backstopped the Canucks all the way to game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. But alas, for every person that agrees, there are two more that think we’re the crazy ones. I really don’t think I would’ve bothered to put in my two cents but I was...

Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Polarizing Players and Powerplay Problems

[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.] I was at Rogers Arena last night as the Vancouver Canucks hosted the New York Rangers.  With the tribute to Rick Rypien, the return of Ryan Kesler, and the newest Canuck Dale Weise facing his former team, it promised to be a memorable night.  Unfortunately, with respect to the actual game, people will be remembering defensive breakdowns and seeing the Rangers win their first...

Ranted: Don’t like Luongo? Why don’t you #occupythenet yourself?

This must be some kind of record or something. It’s only five games into the season and many Canucks fans are already all over Luongo like Homer on a donut. And to think he only played three of those games. Can’t the guy catch a break in this city? Ever? I mean, how dare he take the team to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. What a jerk! We should send him to a Siberian gulag for being such a selfish person, not to mention the worst goalie in the NHL! After all, what are Vezina nominations, Jennings Trophies...
