Bounce This!


As frustrating as losses to the *spits on the ground* Sharks are when they happen like that, the way the Canucks are playing is more conducive to wins than losses, but some bounces their way...

The IlLEAFinati is REAL!


I'd suspected it for years. The way so many Leafs fans seemed to get their hands on tickets when they came to town. Was it really a case of people looking to make a quick buck? The answer was...

Not This Time...


Kind of funny how it all worked out, isn't it? If there was one team we here in the West always wanted to see shuttled off to the East where they can't be a bother anymore, it had to be the Detroit...

Not So Far From You


The triumphant road warriors return, bloodied but unbowed. Okay, that may be a bit much but it's safe to say few saw the Canucks collecting 11 of a possible 14 points on that road swing. They're...

Canucks Brunch- Maximum Overchill


The last game of a 7 game, 11 night Eastern road swing, the 2nd back to back to back set and they played in NJ the night before. Even getting a point tonight will be a miracle. Just get out...

Canucks Brunch- Can't get much worse... Or can it?


After that bloody awful game Sunday in Columbus, the Canucks head to Long Island for a chance to was the taste outta their mouths against the Islanders. Shame Michael Grabner won't be in the lineup...

Nucks Brunch- Round on the end. High in the middle


After a well deserved point in the tie against the Penguins (that's right, I said tie. I no longer will recognize the legitimacy of shootouts) the Canucks find themselves in Columbus, Ohio. On...

Canucks Breakfast- Seriously? 10 am?


Will we even be sufficiently caffeinated to deal with hockey at 10 am? Who plays this early? Anyway, the Canucks face the biggest test of the young season as they roll into Pittsburgh for a rare...

Canucks Brunch- Shuffle...


Game 2 of the roadtrip from hell continues, this time it's Buffalo, a city we as Canucks fans share a kinship with. No this has nothing to do with Cody, but the Sabres themselves and... the Buffalo...

Canucks Brunch- Scorn From The Lowest Place


After a couple 4-1 losses at home, you can't blame the Canucks for wanting to get out on the road. The Canucks need a kickstart in a bad way, and it could come in the form of Jordan Schroeder, who...

Canucks Brunch- Digging The Grave


If you count preseason games, this will be game 12 for the current edition for the Vancouver Canucks. Alex Edler's 3 game penalty issued yesterday is the latest one. Are the Canucks their own worst...

Canucks Brunch- I Think I'm Gonna Hertl


Yeah, yeah. The rookie's had a hell of a first week or so. Let's not kid ourselves, the Canucks have to be a little more concerned about the sum of those parts than any particular one. The first...

Canucks Brunch- Shout At The Devils


Thanks to some great scheduling from the NHL, we don't have to wait long before Cory Schneider's return to Vancouver. While it's nice to see him back, here's hoping the Canucks aren't generous...

Canucks Brunch- Well That Didn't Take Long


If there was one thing that you could truly count on with the arrival of John Tortorella as coach of the Canucks, it was a change in attitude. Boy did we get that last night in a 6-2 win over the...

Canucks Brunch-Take As Needed For Pain


Coming off a stinker against the Sharks, the Canucks will need to be wary of Oilers out for revenge in tonight's home opener. Also, Alberts will be on the 4th line, meaning you don't have enough...

Take a deep breath


and repeat after me: Hockey's back. Nice touch to have the Canucks take on the team that (mercifully) ended their season last time around.

Suspensions, Injuries and Hyperbole, Oh My!


Talk about your eventful weekends, huh? Injuries, suspensions, and internet screaming matches. I know we all missed hockey a lot, but the last couple days have a definite mid-season feel to them.

#FreeYost: Is Sens Owner Melnyk Behind Hacking?


Did Sens owner Eugene Melnyk send Ukranian hackers after blogger Travis Yost after a series of investigative posts into Melnyk's money dealings? It's certainly starting to look that way...

BREAKING: Report- Canucks To Hire Tortorella?


It came down to two names really, LA assistant coach John Stevens and the fiery Tortorella, and it looks like GM Mike Gillis and team owner Francesco Aquallini have made their decision.

Canucks Re-sign Tom Sestito


Sestito beats the team to the announcement that he's inked a 2 year deal to stay with the Canucks after being snagged on waivers from the Flyers on March 1st. Celebrate appropriately.



TSN is reporting that the Vancouver Canucks are going to announce they've fired The coaching staff of Alain Vigneault, Rick Bowness and Newell Brown.

Canucks Brunch- Nowhere To Run


It's a horrible feeling as a sports fan, being in this situation. Part of you wants your team to emerge triumphant in spite of tremendous odds, while the other part just wants it over quick to put...

Canucks Brunch- Deja Spew


While the effort was good enough to get into overtime Friday night, it was due more to the play of Kesler and Luongo than a team effort. If this Canucks team continues to give us the kind of...

Playoff Brunch- Are You Ready?


It sucks to have to ask this, but then again this is the Vancouver Canucks we're talking about. All season long we've been 'treated' to efforts like we saw from them in Game 1 against San Jose, and...

Spur of the Moment Open Thread


Because sometimes you need to be around familiar faces, right?

Playoff Brunch- Leave It On The Ice


The time has finally arrived. After a season of doubt and inconsistency, the Canucks begin their quest for the Cup against a familiar foe. Are they ready for this?

Find Your Playoff Bandwagon NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2013 NHL playoffs 2013: Why you should root for the Vancouver Canucks


So the fine folks at SB Nation HQ asked writers from each playoff bound team to make a post explaining why fans should hop on their team's bandwagon. I decided to approach it a little differently...

Cheer for the Canucks .. or don't, whatever

Kent Basky from Nucks Misconduct wouldn't mind if you jumped on the Canucks bandwagon, but honestly wouldn't care much if you hate them either.

Canucks Brunch- Just Get It Over With


The playoffs are almost here, but the Canucks have to deal with that overrated bunch in the Alberta capital first. We'll know who they face by the end of the night, but in the meantime, here's to...
