“Alex Edler, My Goodness…”
This article was written immediately following the Minnesota Wild game, so to start, please allow me to say that that was embarrassing.
I was originally hesitant to write on this topic following Saturday’s game because one might jump to the conclusion that Alex Edler‘s Goal of the Year Candidate was a positive thing.
Au contraire mon frère et...
Push the button!
Vancouver Canucks fans it IS time to panic!
Over the past few weeks, the dissatisfaction with this (still SECOND PLACED TEAM!) has reached epidemic proportions. Never mind the fact that so many teams (each of the past five champions by the way) has gone through similar poor spells late in the season.
You know for sure that Alain Vigneault and Mike Gillis have lost...
OFFICIAL Press Release from the Vancouver Canucks this AM.
Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have signed goaltender Joe Cannata.

The Vancouver Canucks have lost five of their last seven games and seven of their last 10, including a drowsy 2-0 loss at Minnesota Monday night.The Wild staggered into the game amid a stunning 9-25-7 downturn. But Minnesota goaltender Josh Harding didn’t have to work hard enough to throw his shutout.“I think you can count on one hand the number of Grade A scoring chances that...
from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province, Vigneault’s time with this team is surely drawing very near the end because management owes it to the group to give them another coach next year, so as to have a fresh approach before the Sedins get too old to even talk about getting something done five-on-five….
What’s going on now is so unlike the professionalism of last year’s...
With 10 games left in the regular season for the Vancouver Canucks, there's little danger of falling out of first place.
They're more concerned about this recent series of uncharacteristic performances. They're still on solid footing for the second seed in the Western Conference playoffs, but on the ice they've been slipping.
Erik Christensen's power-play goal...
A wise man (or woman) once said that, “Patience is a virtue.”
Maybe we’ve been a little too harsh on our Vancouver Canucks. Since the beginning of the 2010-11 season, they have played 179 regular season and playoff games. You can make it 180 in 530 days if you count Wednesday night’s matchup against Chicago.
If you take out the off-season, the All-Star break...
ST. PAUL, Minn. Minnesota Wild coach Mike Yeo approached the podium for the postgame press conference and offered a wry smile.
There was no holding back the pleasure he got from watching his team snap a three-game losing streak two days and one game after saying his team was "in hell." There have been precious few opportunities the past two months for Yeo to gloat about...
Erik Christensen's power-play goal late in the second period gave Josh Harding and the Minnesota Wild a long-sought win, 2-0 over the suddenly sputtering Vancouver Canucks on Monday.
Kyle Brodziak's empty-netter gave the Wild even more to smile about, hearing a rare end-of-the-game roar from their fans after this win over the Northwest Division leader and competitor for...
The Vancouver Canucks might have a firm grasp on the second seed in the Western Conference, but they are having a hard time building momentum heading into the playoffs.
Looking to bounce back from their latest defeat, the Canucks face another difficult challenge Wednesday night when they visit a Chicago Blackhawks team trying to match a season high with its fifth consecutive victory...
