BEST OF MAXIM
While searching out a picture of Zack Kassian for my piece on the Canucks shootout strategy, I discovered that Zack Kassian has taken a lot of priceless photos in his short stint as a pro hockey player. He’s halfway through his second season as a pro and the internet is already full of amazingly hilarious photos of the big curly haired missing tooth beauty.
Here’s a selection...

Now that the NHL lockout is over, the Green Men are back and better than ever as they attended the Vancouver Canucks season opener at the Rogers Centre last Saturday against the Anaheim Ducks.
In the third period, Force and Sully got to mess with Ducks right winger Teemu Selanne as he was sent to the penalty box for two minutes for tripping. With the NHL is now enforcing a rule...
Shortened Season Tips
We have all been so excited that Canucks hockey is back (unless you are still bitter and ‘boycotting’ the NHL) that we haven’t really had time to analyze the season the way we usually do.
This shortened season will prove interesting regarding playoff races, which will essentially begin next month.
The Canucks still haven’t set up any deal to trade Roberto...

With the NHL finally showcasing the best the league has to offer on the ice instead of during contentious mediation sessions, the NHL’s notoriously dedicated and loyal fans for the most part have returned in droves. And not only regular folks like we common folks of the Joe Six-Pack and Jane Box-of-Wine ilk. We’re talking about the beautiful people: The stars of stage and screen...

Canucks Hit the Road for the First Time – Take on Undefeated Ducks
The Vancouver Canucks finally got a win Wednesday night – finally. They head out for their first road game of the season Friday when they visit the team that soundly thrashed them in Game 1 of the season – the Anaheim Ducks. Revenge will certainly be on Vancouver’s mind.
It doesn’t take a vivid imagination to connect Roberto Luongo to the Edmonton Oilers.The injury-depleted Vancouver Canucks desperately need a Top 6 forward. They are eager to move Luongo and his massive contract.The Oilers have lots of second- and third-line forward options, including Sam Gagner. As luck would have it, Sam’s father Dave works for the Canucks.With 900-year-old...
Fresh off Friday’s big win over the Ducks, the Vancouver Canucks are back in action tonight with a Sharks team that’s undefeated in their first four games. The Sharks beat the Avalanche 4-0 last night with Patrick Marleau scoring twice. He’s now done that in every game of the year so far.

The shootout is a fickle beast. The glorified coin toss can be so random yet determines whether the 65 minutes prior was an effort good enough for a win or bad enough for a loss.
For the second straight game, the Canucks blew a 2-0 lead to an Albertan team and decided the game in a shootout. On Sunday, the Oilers “won” and panic...
