Quiet? What quiet? Western Conference Preview

Hey, this is tomorrow, right?  Close enough, in any case.  I don't want too many days going by, or I won't be able to use the fact that I posted these predictions up before training camps got...

Fire it up, Baby! Eastern Conference Preview

Training camps have opened, junior pre-season games are already underway, and the unmistakable smell of artificial ice is in the air.  What better way to herald the season's arrival by including...

As Things Stand

With the recent signing of a FFP (Frequently Favourite Player) of mine, the forward ranks seem to be filling out reasonably well.  There's still some question about a second line scorer, but it's...

New Divides to Conquer

With Atlanta moving Westward (as well as Northward - finally!) talk has resurfaced of changing divisions to more accurately line up with regions and actual/potential rivalries.  So long as the NHL...

FanPost

Well, Back To Work

Bummer.  Going zero-for-three at the toughest trophy in sports sucks, but losing it to Boston doesn't make it too hard to take: that's a pretty darned good team over there.  The question now is:...

FanPost

Keys

Ouch.  That was... awful.  After a tentative first, some bad luck to start the second then a descent into hell.  Ow.  Still, just like with wins, you can only lose one game at a time, and the C...

The Conversation Gets Interesting

Thomas and Krejci for Boston; Kesler, Luongo, Henrik, and Bieksa for the Canucks.  Time to add another name.

There goes that excuse

Before anyone talks about the possible "conflict of interest" Colin Campbell may have, let's not forget he's got a pretty solid link to Vancouver as well...

FanPost

While We're Waiting...

...Is it too soon to play with next season's roster?  After all, there's still plenty o'game to go here, and no-one knows which players will emerge as goats and heroes in the city.  (Actually, if...

FanPost

Differences

Everyone here knows what happened in round two. I expect everyone here also knows why it happened: the Nashville Predators thought they needed to shut down Henrik and Daniel Sedin, and then hope...

FanPost

Brace for Impact

Nashville, huh?  A team that has been made of sandpaper for a decade, with the few scoring stars brought in getting their numbers shaved.  A team that shoots from anywhere, so scores from...

FanPost

Whither Optimism?

The Canucks have been beaten soundly over the last three games, outscored by 11 goals; the coach pulled the putative starter in two of those games, inserting him in the third just in time to lose;...

Waiting for Sunday

Given the talk this series has had, could someone please point out to Bett... Bet... (sorry, can't say it) the commissioner that it's not regular season games but playoff match-ups that create rivalries? He doesn't seem that he's noticed. The point? Get the schedule back to every team playing each other every year - I've heard enough whining about how the Canucks won the President's Trophy "because of a weak division..."

FanPost

Still Waiting...

So.  After waiting months (and months) for Jeff Tambellini to break into double digits for goals - a bit greedy, perhaps, as he's never done it before - I started thinking up "races" for the magic...

FanPost

Five Reasons

With a week off to heal our D (again.  Anyone working for the Canucks pushing to make 6-day breaks 10 games in part of the permanent schedule?), I thought I'd toss one of these into the mix while...

FanPost

Dynasty, Schmynasty

Yeah, that was forced. So I was at The Hockey News, and saw a fan letter asking if there will ever be another dynasty in the NHL.  Now they didn't bother describing what they meant by a dynasty,...

FanPost

Punch It!

There is a current post up by Yankee Canuck regarding what Samuelsson is going to do next season, which is a reasonable question: any time someone jumps in their stats, it's fair to ask not only...

Who's From Where? (edit)

*Edit: Team BC now has centres.  Not the same since Yzerman and Sakic retired, but better than none!   It's not my fault. We got to talking about the Atlanta-Chicago trade, and it was noticed...

FanPost

What Happened? What Now?

Okay, put away the trade sticks and the "everyone SUCKS!" eyeglasses.  Chicago, a very good team that finished (just) ahead of Vancouver in the standings, beat the Canucks in six games.  Lots...

FanPost

Get the Gun Outta Yer Mouth...

...I need to aim it at my foot. Lots and lots of hand-wringing lately about the state of the Canucks of late, and fair enough: after all, it's getting close to the playoffs, when the Sedins suck,...

A Journey of Self Discovery

It feels... strange to be thanking Living Sock Puppet Gary Bettman for anything. Strange and quite possibly evil.  And yet I have been led on a spiritual and intellectual journey over the past few...

Thompson vs. Toronto via Winnipeg?

Follow the bouncing puck, here:Mark Chipman has been trying to get a team back in Winnipeg for a long time, apparently succeeding in principle as of yesterday.  You all know the story behind why...

Spider Moose, Spider Moose...

Oh, What's the Difference?

With both Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby being in the news (for much, much different reasons) I thought the time was right to irritate as many people as possible by mentioning who I like more. H...

FanPost

Moose Calls?

Two Canuck forward prospects are about to have their seasons end, and given the offensive difficulties the Moose are experiencing (only three AHL teams have fewer goals) it's certainly possible...

NHL Season at the Quarter: Eastern Promises

I’ll start by saying that I’m shocked how well my pre-season predictions are standing up, with a few exceptions to reinforce the humility.  Hey, just try finding anyone who thought Carolina...

Apparently, Nick Lidstrom and Henrik Zetterberg are taking their roles as team leaders seriously enough to make a major announcement to the world...

NHL Preview West (Blind Pigs and Acorns, Part 2)

To quote Michael Frante: "To the East, to the West" Yesterday's East predictions are over here, just to be sure I can get embarrassed on both coasts by season's end.
