I am a Canucks fan....one of the crazy ones that thinks we will win the Cup. How soon is the next question!

I love the discourse here at SBNation. Even the ones I disagree with. At least you are strong in your beliefs.

Keep those sticks down though. Its supposed to be fun. A communal thing. Thats what keeps us all coming back, I think. Sometimes we all can get passionate. My apologies if I have ever offended. It is all from a good place.

"...nothing put love for ya..."

Life is too short for getting worked up about others' opinions, no?

Now get that smelly glove out of my face...

Changing Times A'coming, Ready or Not...

Changing of the guard. Changing fortunes, changing for the sake of change. Yes, we know the hockey has been fantastics so far, but some of us have important business to speculate about.

A " #Meh " Game Recap ( 5-2 L )

After a 1st period that exemplified the Canuck season ( outshooting them 18-5, yet down 2-0 ), the Canucks got into penalty trouble, defensive zone trouble, and just plain old trouble, losing 5-2, in a game where the score didn't reflect the play...

A "Well, Sh*t" Game Recap ( 3-2 L o/t )

The Canucks played hard, had the run of play in the third in a tied game, and succumbed to an O/T goal from Tyson Barrie to lose a crucial point up for grabs, in a game they might have hoped for better. Running the table is probably needed now.

A " Living On a Prayer" Game Recap ( 5-2 W )

The Canucks rode 2 unassisted goals from Booth, some great saves early by Lack, and production from Kesler, Kassian, and Daniel Sedin, ( his first in 24 games ) to make Wild fans mutter darkly of regression, and keep their faint playoff hopes alive.

A " Really ? " Game Recap ( 4-3 L )

Give the Canucks credit, they never stopped trying in this one. In a game where they had two goals go in off of Ryan Stanton's legs to get by Lack, it was a couple of defensive zone screw ups that were the difference in a game that just wasn't to be.

A " No Soup For Lui" Game Recap ( 4-3 W s/o )

The Canucks went into Florida, played well, and came out on the good side of a game that never should have gotten that far, as they overcame some of the same bugaboos that have troubled them all season, and came away with the s/o win,thanks to Jensen

A "Well, That's It Then" Game Recap ( 4-3 L )

The Canucks never gave in for a second, controlled huge swathes of the game, but still found a way to end up on the short end, as their playoff hopes were dealt an, in all probability, fatal blow with this 4-3 loss.

A "Finally" Game Recap ( 3 - 2 W s/o )

It was like pulling teeth, or stubbing your toe really bad as you get out of bed, but the Canucks got two goals from Alex Burrows, a superlative performance from Eddie Lack, and hard work from everyone else to get the two points.

"The Puck Gods Must Be Crazy"

The downwards spiral continued with the first game after the trade deadline a 6-1 disaster. Dallas is a good team, to be sure, but that was...that was.... #Yeesh

A "Painful" Game recap ( 1-0 L )

On the day when one of their leaders was traded away, the Canucks responded with a listless, disjointed effort against a team ripe for the picking, had one mistake get in the back of their net, and have now lost 10 of the last 11 games. Ouch.

Canucks Trade Roberto Luongo

Canucks get forward Shawn Matthias and goalie Jacob Markstrom in blockbuster trade with (shocker) Florida for the best goaltender in our much bumbled history.

A "Drama" Game Recap ( 4-2 L )

With all the craziness surrounding this game, the Canucks came out strong, sagged in the second half of the opening period, and the entire second period, and lost a game they had a chance to win. But all it will be remembered for is "the goalie ? "

Now What ?

As we get back to the business of worrying about the playoffs in our hockey mad city, there are rumours, and there are crazy rumours. Here is why I think the Canucks and their moves might just depend on how they do the next three games.

A " Take a Break" Game Recap ( 3-1 L )

The Canucks were full value for a lead through two periods, had a lapse (and sat back too much on a 1-0 lead ), and then gave up three goals, one off of Edler's face, to stretch their losing streak to seven games. Take a break, get healthy, let's go!

A "When The Levee Breaks" Game Recap ( 5-2 L )

In a game where the Canucks had the edge in play, by far the edge in shots, Corsi, Fenwick, and all those other good things, enough bad things happened that the Canucks ended up on the short end of a 5-2 loss, pushing their losing streak to six.

A "Not Even Mad" Game Recap ( 3-1 L )

The Canucks came in with even more injuries ( Higgins and Hamhuis out of the lineup ) and were the hard against it, with 4 youngsters on the blue line. They had all the effort, and little of the results however, losing 3-1.

A "Pass The Whisky" Game Recap ( 2-0 L )

I don't drink much, as a rule. Haven't really hit the hard stuff for a long long time. But a game like this one might be sending me to the store to ask whether single or blended malt is better! !

A "Painful" Game Recap ( 4-3 L )

The Jets played well enough to win. In fact, they DID win. The Canucks didn't play well enough in their own end to win. And they didn't. They did play well enough in the third period to deserve a better fate. Hence, the "pain".

A "Win One For Torts" Game Recap ( 2-1 W )

After the craziness of Saturday at home, the Canucks went on a quick one game roadie to their home away from home, Rexall Place, got a strong performance from Roberto Luongo, and a winning goal from "Edmonton's Most Wanted" Zack Kassian for a 2-1 win

A "Slumpin'" Game Recap ( 1-0 L )

You know how it goes. The team looks good, or bad, as the case may be, but the puck just won't go in. A break cannot be had. That is how it goes when your team is slumping, and the Canucks are slumping.

A " Yeesh" Game Recap ( 9-1 L )

The Ducks. It is this team, not the Hawks or Blues, that is the #1 team in the West. They have not been beaten in regulation at home in this season. So, how did our Canucks do tonight? Do you REALLY want to know?

A " We'll Take That" Game Recap ( 1 - 0 L )

In a hard hitting, sometimes violent, relentless game at Staples Center, the Kings got solid goaltending from Quick, took advantage of a mistake, and made it count. In a game where the Canucks may have won the bigger battle, the Kings took the 2 pts

A "Really Guys, You Shouldn't Have" Game Recap

Eddie Lack was the best player on the ice, the Canucks' truncated lineup wouldn't quit hold the fort, and with the injuries suddenly piling up all at once, the Canucks fell to the Pacific leading Ducks on a last second goal from Corey Perry

A "You Make Your Own Luck" Game Recap ( 3-1 L )

Roberto Luongo faced a season high 48 shots in his first game back from injury, and the Canucks matched the Kings' intensity throughout a hard fought and entertaining game. Jonathan Quick was great when he had to be, stopping all but one of 28 shots

Original Six New Years Are The Best Open Thread

Sorry if all the "facts" made that headache hurt more, and you're welcome if the distraction from the throbbing helps. Just trying to do our part here to help you recover and enjoy the day of hockey...

A "Get The Job Done" Game Recap ( 2-0 W )

The Canucks rode a dominant first two periods, some timely saves from Eddie Lack, and the Kesler line was simply too much for the Flames in a 2-0 shutout on the road.

Luongo's injury insurance arrives,Hunter's surgery

It's a shame when a prospect's season ends with surgery, but just think. His recovery is just in time to be an end of season "Black Ace" surprise. Let's hope the news with Roberto Luongo is of a more positive nature, and Eriksson's visit is brief.

Torts and The Twins

So, which is it? The Canuck Twin Superstars are still producing at career levels while being used more, and in different ways. That is how you get better. Just find what you weren't doing and do it! All Sedin hard work makes coach a happy Torts...

A "Just Like Old Times" Game Recap ( 3-2 W s/o )

If you told me in 2011 that Chris Tanev and Eddie Lack would lead the Canucks to victory in Chicago, you'd have gotten a blank stare. The Sedins saving the game with a tying goal?Sure. But it was a rookie and a sophomore who made a difference tonight

A "Frustrating" Game Recap ( 4-1 L )

Sometimes, it doesn't matter what your record is, or what happens before or after. Sometimes that other team is just frustrating to play against, and sometimes it's all in your head! Sometimes, that is what your opponent wants you to feel...
