We made songs for new Canucks’ President Trevor Linden and new Canucks’ GM Jim Benning…so rightfully new Canucks’ head coach Willie Desjardins deserved a song as well. Thus, we proudly present to you a quick mash-up of two Michael Jackson songs: “Will You Be There” and “Billie Jean”. Our versions are “Willie is Here” and “Willie D”. I’m joined once again by my good friend Joseph San Jose and our MJ look-alike is Charly Pimentel making his CCC debut.Click here to read more.
Last week, Canucks’ President Trevor Linden named Jim Benning (affectionately referred to as “Jimmy B” for the purposes of our video) as the 11th General Manager in franchise history. As soon as the hire was officially announced, a few of my Twitter friends had song suggestions for me. But Steve May went one step further: he wrote an entire song and sent the lyrics to me. Thus, I proudly present to you my latest Clay’s Canucks Composition: “Jimmy B” an ode to new General Manager Jim Benning to the tune of The Beatles’ classic “Let it Be”. As always, I’m...Click here to read more.
Last week, Trevor Linden was named President of Hockey Operations of the Vancouver Canucks. Arguably the most-popular player in the history of the franchise, Linden’s hiring ushers in a new era for the team. Thus, as with any big Canucks development, I wrote a song about it. Inspired by “Treasure” by Bruno Mars, we proudly present to you my latest Clay’s Canucks Composition: “Trevor” — a song that pays homage to the new President. I’m blessed to be joined by four wonderfully talented friends, all of whom have appeared in previous videos of mine: Marie Hui, Arielle Tuliao, Oggy Luistro,...Click here to read more.
In the Canucks’ first game in the Trevor Linden as President era, they lost 4-2 to the Colorado Avalanche and slipped to 12th place in the Western Conference, just ahead of the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers. On the bright side, as it stands right now, they look to be on track for another top 9 pick in this year’s NHL Entry Draft. Yay? #Canucks #TGATT — gladys (@gloomybb) April 11, 2014Click here to read more.
Step 1: Draft hulking forward with average skating ability but flashes of offensive upside. Step 2: Thrust player into spotlight using unfair comparisons and unrealistic expectations. Step 3: Criticize said player’s slow development despite young age and minimal professional experience. Step 4: After a few years of disappointment, give player chance on second line or better because of a cavalcade of injuries. Step 5: Take credit for supposed 3-year plan when player succeeds. And so goes the tale of the power forward – a much sought after, but rare commodity in the modern era of the NHL. These types of players often take...Click here to read more.
Vancouver seems to want to move away from public gatherings in the city and trying to move people to suburban areas but let’s face it, the downtown core will be packed as long as the Canucks are in the playoffs. So when you’re out there this post-season, we here at CHB would like to remind you to have a great time but that if you do decide to start some trouble, your actions will have consequences. Not only will you make poor Roberto Luongo cry, but you might get a look like this from Trevor Linden. I don’t know about...Click here to read more.
This year, the Richmond Olympic Oval was the venue for the Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada festivities in BC. On tap were many events: various ice hockey games of all levels, skills camps, ball hockey, street hockey, floor ball and many interactive displays and exhibits. Armed with a camera, a mic and our BlackBerrys, Chris, Clay, Lizz and I proceeded to cover the event, and in the spirit of Hockey Day in Canada, talked to many of the people who attended, including some prominent members of the hockey community, and asked them about their favorite hockey memories. First up, legendary...Click here to read more.
It’s a sad day for Vancouver sports as we hear of the passing of Paul Carson after a battle with pancreatic cancer. I didn’t know him personally, but we spent Christmases together through Sports Page’s Yulin’ with the Page year-end sports highlight package. And of course, he was instrumental in founding TEAM 1040, Vancouver’s first all-sports radio station. RIP Paul. Thank you for what you’ve done to Vancouver sports and sports media. Our thoughts and prayers to you and your family. ***** A quick trip down memory lane: Another one: (More Yulin’ with the Page here.)Click here to read more.
(Post by J.J., Chris Golden and Harrison Mooney.) Even as Markus Naslund’s career in a Vancouver Canucks uniform was winding down – a career that saw him revitalize a moribund franchise, rewrite numerous franchise scoring records, become the longest-serving captain in Canucks history, and spend countless hours in the community – many fans questioned whether or not his jersey #19 was deserving to be raised to the rafters. Whether or not it deserved to hang alongside #12 and #16. The fact is, many fans have come to compare Naslund’s accomplishments with Trevor Linden’s and Stan Smyl’s. And that’s certainly their...Click here to read more.
