If there is one thing that we at CHB love to do, it’s to have good times with good people. We’ve held tweetups, group games, and for those of you old enough – drunk-ups (even if J.J. doesn’t remember them)! With us filming our next episode of CHB TV this Sunday, we’re breaking out of our usual confines at the Hog Shack Cook House in Steveston and will be heading to the Donnelly Group’s Library Square Public House, centrally located in downtown Vancouver. What’s so exciting about this you ask? And we want you all to join us! (assuming you’re...Click here to read more.
[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.] There are many reasons why you should eagerly anticipate the Canucks Hockey Blog tweetup at the Hog Shack in beautiful Steveston in Richmond taking place this Saturday afternoon: a good game (hopefully) between the Canucks and the Sharks, good food, contests, and of course, great company. As I look ahead to Saturday, there are a few tweetup-specific Things That Make Me Go Hmmm: 1. ...Click here to read more.
Daniel Sedin’s third period goal in last week’s 3-1 win against the Calgary Flames was significant not only because it served as the insurance marker in an otherwise close game, but also because it was the 10,000th goal in the history of the Vancouver Canucks franchise. Yesterday, the Canucks celebrated another milestone: their 50,000th follower on Twitter. This ranks them 4th among all official NHL team Twitter accounts, and they’re closing in on 3rd place Chicago. The hockey blogosphere is often filled with stories pitting team vs. blogger vs. mainstream media. For their part, the Canucks have done a pretty...Click here to read more.

No, Vince Vaughn’s not invited to this party. On Saturday, November 20th, our good friends, Mike and Sean, from Nucks Misconduct are coming into town for the big Canucks/Blackhawks game that night. They’ve put together a meet-and-greet at the Forum Sports Bar (1163 Granville St., Vancouver) for their readership and have kindly extended an invitation to us. If you’d like to join your favorite Canucks bloggers for some beers, Blackhawks-hating and hockey talk, please do come by the Forum and join us.Click here to read more.
When the Manitoba Moose come to town in November to play against the Abbotsford Heat, I want to get a group of people to head out to Abbotsford and watch the Canucks prospects hard at work. A group of us went last year and we had a great time. The games against the Moose games are one of the few that the Heat sell out all season. When we went last year, the crowd was a solid 50-50 split of Moose and Heat fans. Every time we started a “Go Moose Go” chant it was countered by a “Go Heat...Click here to read more.
