Rejuvenated Ballard boosts blue line
One year ago in the playoffs Keith Ballard appeared to be Alain Vigneault’s favourite whipping boy, as he was frequently dropped from the post season lineup and fell victim to several less than flattering appraisals by his coach.
To his credit, the expensive free agent defenceman, acquired from the Florida Panthers (Vancouver’s favoured players...
We may have seen the last of Roberto Luongo with the Vancouver Canucks. it wasn't long ago, Luongo was considered the cornerstone of the franchise with Canada's best chance of winning the Stanley Cup. it was Luongo who once donned team captaincy, and he still carries a contract with franchise player cash attached. However, Roberto Luongo posted his lowest games played mark...
Vigneault enhances the Canucks’ future
No matter how this series turns out, and no matter what the coaching situation may end up becoming after the playoffs have evolved, you have to hand it to coach Alain Vigneault.
He has prepared for these playoffs as professionally as ever, paying little heed to all the speculation surrounding his future.
Adjustments aside, the play of Jonathan...
Part 2: Somebody That I Used to Luuuu
I started the day by hashing out the pros and cons (You really need to read my first article. Go on! Do it now!) of starting either Vancouver Canucks goaltender in Game 4 tonight especially in light of the prevailing sentiment and some choice comments from Alain Vigneault that hinted whoever got the nod tonight might be getting the nod in future...
Did you see the great game last night? Canucks won 3-1 to beat the LA Kings and force a game 5 back in Vancouver. Henrik Sedin got some revenge on Dustin Brown for his "legal" hit in Game 4 on Henrik. A drive by Backhand Slap - Swedish style. Enjoy.
from Chris Johnston of the CP at the Winnipeg Free Press, This was not the type of history the Vancouver Canucks had in mind when the playoffs started.
Down to their final life on Wednesday, the back-to-back Presidents’ Trophy winners are in danger of becoming the first NHL team in more than seven decades to get swept out of the first round after leading the regular season in...
Henrik Sedin backhands Dustin Brown and puts him down...

These are dark days. The Vancouver Canucks are on the brink of getting swept in the first round less than two weeks after winning the Presidents’ Trophy and they’re doing it under the spotlight of the nation.
As hinted by the ‘controversial’ tweet sent out after Game 1, there isn’t a lot of love for the Vancouver Canucks outside of British Columbia.
It exists because...
Be the Difference…
How does one sum up the keys to winning the first game of a potential four game comeback?
There truly is no set of special keys that unlock this magical door we hope the Vancouver Canucks can open. They simply must be the best in every way, shape and form.
Is it possible? Yes.
Is it probable? It’s always been.
Is it certain? Not by a longshot.
This is truly...
Defenseman Alex Edler and captain Henrik Sedin scored power-play goals as the Vancouver Canucks staved off elimination by posting a 3-1 win over the host Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series on Thursday.
Kevin Bieksa also tallied, fellow blue-liner Dan Hamhuis notched two assists and Cory Schneider made 43 saves in his first career playoff...
Cory Schneider gets the nod. What does that mean for Roberto's future?
Cory Schneider made 43 saves and stopped Dustin Brown's penalty shot in his first career playoff victory, Daniel Sedin sparked Vancouver's power play in his return from injury, and the top-seeded Canucks avoided an embarrassing first-round sweep with a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 on Wednesday night.
Kevin Bieksa scored the go-ahead goal, and Alex Edler...

The Vancouver Canucks need a spark, and they may have just got the spark yesterday when Daniel Sedin appeared. Sedin has not played in about three weeks, and it is still up in the air whether he will play, but it may be now or never for the Swede.
