Dog Days of Summer: Dan Carcillo Edition 3

Dog Days of Summer: Dan Carcillo Edition

You know we’re still in the dog days of summer when we’re focusing on a guy like Dan Carcillo. In case you missed it, Carcillo, who signed with the Chicago Blackhawks this summer, caused a bit of a stir when he had this to say about playing the Canucks during his presser: To recap: Q: What do you think of the Vancouver Canucks? Carcillo: Oh geez, I’ve had this question today already. I watched that series. I don’t know. I’m actually pretty excited to play them because there are a few guys there that play a little bit outside of...

Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Roster Changes, (Lack of) Discipline and Two-Man Advantages

[Inspired by Arsenio Hall’s “Things the 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.] Hello readers.  My name is Clayton Imoo and I am thrilled to join the talented group of passionate Canucks fans here at the CHB.  I do a regular video-blog called “Clay’s Canucks Commentary” that is featured on Canucks.com and I’m excited to take a different approach for my contributions to this site:  “Things That Make You Go Hmmm…” If you were at least a...

Pass the Time: Canucks vs. Senators Pregame

Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers for winning Super Bowl XLV. As well, congratulations to Christina Aguilera for joining Bryan Adams in national anthem infamy and looking like a younger Cyndi Lauper in the process. As we turn our attention back to the Canucks and wait for puck drop in tonight’s game against the Ottawa Senators, here are some reads to help pass the time: Daniel’s hot on Stamkos’ trail in the Art Ross trophy race. [Ben Kuzma, Vancouver Province] Sammy’s back. [Ian Walker, Vancouver Sun] Sami’s getting there too. [Jason Botchford, Vancouver Province] Lee Sweatt’s staying in town. [Ian...

I Watched This Game: Canucks 7 – 1 Stars

[I Watched This Game is a recurring feature at Pass it to Bulis–the hockey blog that knows who needs the puck. It chronicles the insights and observations of two guys that watched a hockey game.] Friends, Romans, countrymen, I ask you, humbly, what is the cure for an offensive slump? Don’t answer; this is a rhetorical question. The solution, as everybody knows, is an opponent with porous goaltending and crap defense. It’s a fairly simple remedy, but the real trick is finding a major league team willing to provide it. Short of scheduling a shinny with the Washington Generals or the...

Ask Katie About the Canucks: Secondary Scoring Slumps, Unsung Heroes and Why I Like NKOTB

[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 (@canucksgirl44)] Photo credit: Yahoo Sports Everyone put on their blue and green hardhats! Because after last night’s 4-0 shut-out loss in Minnesota, the sky is falling for a percentage of fans who sit on the tailgate of the Canucks bandwagon. Yes, the team got its butt kicked, and yes, the Canucks now have three injuries in addition to Salo (Bolduc, Rome and Alberts), but hey, here’s the...

Canucks Review and Preview: January 17 to January 23, 2011

You can follow Caylie on Twitter (@cayking).] Canucks Record 44 GP, 29-9-6, 64 points (1st in Northwest Division, 1st in Western Conference) Who’s Hot Alex Edler is starting to cement his place as one of the good, young defensemen in the NHL. He has been a workhorse, averaging over 25 minutes of ice-time per game in the first 3 games of this road trip and over 24 minutes of ice-time per game this season. Despite the extended ice-time, he’s been very reliable and hasn’t...

I Watched This Game: Canucks 4 – 3 Islanders (SO)

[I Watched This Game is a recurring feature at Pass it to Bulis, the hockey blog that knows who needs the puck. It chronicles the insights and observations of two guys who watched a hockey game. To view all the other wonderful stuff PITB does, visit Pass It To Bulis.] The Canucks had a season-high 51 shots tonight, the Islanders had 41; that’s 92 shots total. How odd, then, that I found this game, with its scoring chances hither and thither, exceedingly dull. Heck, the shootout nearly matched the entire game for entertainment value. Why so mundane? I suspect some...
