from Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun, Just like his client, the agent for goalie Cory Schneider is not about to criticize the Vancouver Canucks for the team's handling of its goaltending situation. But Mike Liut, himself a former goalie, clearly hopes the uncertainty regarding a possible trade of Roberto Luongo does not hang over the team and Schneider all season. "Our concern is we were hoping that this would be the year that Cory would play 75 per cent of the games," Liut said in a phone interview Monday from his Michigan office. "We are only interested in resolution, we are not going to get into the finger-pointing game and to that end you have to take a step back and you have to give them latitude to make a business decision." As much as Liut would like a quick resolution to the matter, he's not entirely convinced that's going to happen. continued

Vancouver Canucks vs. Edmonton Oilers Game 9 notes, prediction & tweets!

I Love Lou Cory Schneider is still the starter of the Vancouver Canucks in the same way Roberto Luongo was still the starter last year when Schneider was riding a hot hand. All that’s really happening right now is that Luongo is increasing his trade value. Oh, and Ryan Kesler took part in his first practice yesterday. Things are looking up. Matchup: Vancouver Canucks (4 – 2...

WHAT IF Luongo doesn’t waive his no trade clause?

We’re now into our third week of this abbreviated NHL season and the transformation of Roberto Luongo has been downright incredible. Remember how Luongo was viewed by many fans and media back in April? He was for sure the second best goalie in Vancouver, he had an ego, he was overrated, he crumbled under the pressure and on and on and on. Fast forward to February 2013 and Luongo’s...

It’s full on hockey time, and Bobby Lu looks more ready than ever. The Canucks started last week in disappointing shootout loss fashion. But after that heartbreaking loss to the Kings, Vancouver got some...

It's getting awkward in Vancouver

Roberto Luongo made his fourth consecutive start Monday night for the Vancouver Canucks. Any other year, that would be nothing of note. But given the offseason the Canucks went through, it's a bit head-scratching. The Canucks seemed all but committed to Cory Schneider after giving the former backup a three-year contract extension worth $12 million. The secondary move, after...

Ian Esplen: Ryan Kesler's Butt

Follow me on twitter @IanEsplen to chat hockey, sports and life in general anytime Through nine games so far, it appears that the absence of one player's anatomy has left a glaring hole in the roster. That piece of anatomy is: Ryan Kesler's butt. So far this year the Canucks power-play has been pretty ordinary without Kesler's butt planted firmly in front of...

Canucks vs. Edmonton Oilers: Tanever gonna give you up

Chris Tanev Edition Boxscore | Recap  Well, that game turned on a dime. For about 58 minutes, the Vancouver Canucks slogged through a muddled effort that looked like they had left their skateguards on they way the Oilers were flying. They had quite a few shots, but they were perimeter shots, and hardly quality chances. The Vancouver specials. And then Kevin Bieksa worked his late...

Vancouver's Goalie Controversy

It looks like Luongo will get the starts in Vancouver Now your probably reading this and saying why is this on a Bruins blog?  The answer is because I, like most Bruins fans despise the Canucks and all their antics after that 7 game Stanley Cup finals, and nothing makes me happier than seeing a team I hate so much having a bunch of problems.  At the start of the short season...

Canucks erase two-goal deficit, drop Oilers in OT

EDMONTON -- Getting even is more fun than getting mad. Just ask the Vancouver Canucks. A week after the Edmonton Oilers came back from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Canucks 3-2 in their own building, Vancouver rolled into Rexall Place and did the exact same thing. Trailing 2-0 after 28 minutes, the Canucks flicked the switch to "swarm" and had their way with Edmonton...
