Longtime mega hardcore Canucks fan. Recently returned to Vancouver after living in New York for three years. Prior to that, lived in Boston for three years, hence the name. Still on the Canucks season ticket waiting list... supposedly it'll take me 2-4 more years.

Atlanta signs Ladd to 1 yr $2.35 mill


It looks like Ladd has avoided arbitration and signed with Atlanta, per ESPN. I know many of you wanted him, but I think that's too steep a price and I'm guessing Atlanta isn't selling anyway!



Per TSN. So what comes next? I feel all giggly and tingly.


Shortcut to the Finals: go through Vancouver...

In another thread, iceman22 asked about the Canucks luck with losing in the playoffs to teams that go on to win the Cup or at least make the finals.  Let's crunch some numbers. In the last decade...


The 2010 Mike Milbury Award

Sutter paid Jokinen and Tanguay to come back?  Are you kidding me?  After the shit he pulled last year? And Sather, seriously, Boogard 4x$1.65 mil contract?  A forward who hasn't scored a goal in 6...


Nucks Misconduct NHL Awards Prediction Pool

I've enjoyed all the pools we've had so far here on NM, so I thought, let's have one for the NHL awards as well! Here are the categories: 1. HART: Crosby/Ovechkin/H.Sedin 2. VEZINA:...

Red Wings re-sign Bertuzzi for 2 years


Terms not yet released... but this report makes me feel all funny and weird inside.


Enjoy the cup this year Chicago...

So it's looking pretty likely that the Blackhawks are going to win the Cup.  So congrats to them.  And now it's time for a little schadenfreude.  They are in deep salary cap doodoo next season....

Mason Raymond joins Team Canada at the World Championships!


In what I think is a slight surprise, Mason Raymond is going to the World Championships to help bolster the Red and White! (This after a certain Mr. Crosby turned down the same spot, though I can't blame him). Now I'm suddenly enthused to watch this tournament. Can't help but think this is an opportunity for MayRay to try and bump his RFA numbers...? (Also, Ehrhoff to join team Germany, in less of a surprise)


Ok so here's the plan!

  So what do we need to do for next year?  Here's the blueprint for the Beantown plan.  I'm game to hear anyone else's thoughts.   1. Mitchell gets healthy (hopefully) and we re-sign him (hopefully...


It's official: the NHL agrees that Auger is a shitty official

From TSN's Gino Reda, the complete list of referees who have been selected for the playoffs:   Playoff Referees: Devorski. P, Furlatt, Joannette, Kozari, LaRue, Lee, Leggo, McCauley, McCreary,...

More proof that Coco's with the Canucks! The emergency room later that night...

Your 2010 Vancouver Canucks have a good shot at the cup! Huzzah!

As some of you may have noticed, WAACH's pronouncement of death to our season a week before the playoffs begin (and while the Canucks are ranked 5th in the league) pissed the fucking shit out of...


Ovech Misconduct (#3)

So Alex Ovechkin got another game misconduct for a hit from behind on Brian Campbell today, back in the first period.  That's his third game misconduct of the season (I believe no one else in the...

The best part of an otherwise boring as hell Academy Awards... Jason Reitman rocking the old skate-and-spaghetti. Tip-o-the-hat to Puck Daddy.

Canucks recall Baumgartner from Moose


As per Sportsnet. I hadn't seen this mentioned in any thread yet, so thought I put it out there. Not surprising... I presume he'll continue to do the in-and-out with Lukowich until Bieksa (and hopefully Mitchell) heal up.


Getzlaf questionable for the Olympics... Replacements?

  Ryan Getzlaf hurt his ankle in yesterday's game against the Kings, and while it's good news that X-rays were negative, he will have an MRI on his ankle today to determine the extent of the...


Beantown Canuck goes to Beantown to watch Canucks

The life of a wandering Canucks fan. Well as some of you know, despite my name being Beantown, I'm actually from Vancouver, and my name comes from the fact that I moved to Boston for school, and I...

Jokinen to Rangers!?!?!?!?


According to Darren Dreger, Jokinen + Prust to NYR for Higgins + Kotalik. ALL THE CRAPPY TEAMS HAVE GONE MAD CRAZY TODAY.

Salo close to returning, Mitchell not so much


A week ago I would have thought my reaction to news like this would be "oh fuck fuck fuck". But with the way the fill-ins have been playing, I'm all "just wait until you're certain you're 100%".


The Race for Player of the Month

As of right now, I gotta think these two are by far the top two contenders: Burrows has points in all 10 Canucks games this January, scoring 17 points in that span, including 13 goals and 2 hat...

Mitchell likely out against Oilers tomorrow!


Though it seems Rome could be back in to fill the slot... but hardly a replacement. I hope Willie's back/head/whatever is not too serious...

Stanley Cup is lost on way to Vancouver - thanks Air Canada


Two comments: 1. Air Canada sucks major 2. I'm content, though, if the Cup is merely delayed until June


Lineups lineups lineups

With Ryan Johnson and Steve Bernier close to returning, who do you think should slot into the lineup? Who should sit out?


Will the Coach Killers have their 3rd Victim?

I came across this post on Puckdaddy today, and noted that the 'nucks play the BJs tomorrow night.  We did it to Philly.  We did it to St. Louis.  Will we do it to Columbus?  Be afraid, all NHL...

Canucks get another one canned!


So the Canuck machine rolls through Philadelphia and gets their coach fired, and now we gone done the same to St. Louis. Huzzah!


Anyone feel sorry for the Wings?

Poor Detroit Red Wings. Do you remember when this was us?  That's an impressive list of impressive players out.  Also of note: check out who the player was who knocked Z-berg out with a punishing...


Rask or Thomas!?

Hey all- Very important issue for my hockey fantasy team- Anyone have any inclination as to who will be starting in net tomorrow night? Rask or Thomas? Thanks!


Rypien, Salo in... SOB out!

Well finally some good news on the injury front... according to the Canucks facebook page, Sami Salo is back in tonight, which means SOB will be sitting in the press box.  That's about what I...


More cuts, with more to come...

Well, the next round of cuts are in.  No surprises yet.  The big CoHo decision has yet to be made.  It would seem from this announcement that McIver and Baumgartner have both passed waivers, which...
