MY PREDICTION: Canucks 4, Coyotes 1
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
“We Are All Canucks”
Starting during the 2008-09 season, the Vancouver Canucks dropped the “We Are All Canucks” campaign on their fans.
Over time, the marketing department may have gone in different directions, but at the end of the day, the team still wants us to feel that we are the seventh man on the ice.
Two weeks ago, the Canucks brass turned their fan base into a...
This week….oh I probably shouldn’t get started
But here goes.
Being stuck in second gear - Ugly, ugly hockey these past two weeks. Several tragic losses to inferior teams, and only barely scraping out a win against the feel-good Jets.
It’s not all the Canucks who are playing badly, just Roberto Luongo, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Kevin Bieksa, Mason Raymond and Alex Burrows...
from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province, The coach said it and the general manager confirmed it. In their minds, there’s no doubt that Roberto Luongo is the starting goaltender.
The only problem with the proclamation is when doubt starts to cloud the picture as the playoffs approach. In a solid season where the Vancouver Canucks stopper had just three regulation losses in January...
from Cam Cole of the Vancouver Sun, Nine months ago, give or take, in the hot-and-heavy days following their Stanley Cup meltdown, the Vancouver Canucks’ blueprint for rebounding was conceived.
To recap, the plan was pretty much as follows:
Stay healthy next time, punish the opponent when it commits fouls of intimidation by scoring on the power play, and don’t deviate from...
Is This Game… the Breakout Game?
Josh is out sick today. Taking over his preview for tonight.
March Madness has hit Vancouver but we’re not talking about basketball. Instead, the Canucks rough patches that have persisted throughout 2012 have put the city on high alert.
They aren’t dominating opponents anymore, they’re losing on Hockey Night in Canada, and most troubling...
Unless you were off hiding under a rock yesterday you've probably heard about Alain Vigneault's most recent line juggling, resulting in winger Mason Raymond landing alongside the Sedin twins. The switch is meant to motivate the slumping Sedins, giving notice to the rest of the lineup that the team's play of late has been unacceptable. What do you think of AV's newest...

Just Lose It
This limerick brought to you by Saturday’s Hockey Night in Canada matchup between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Vancouver Canucks on St. Patrick’s Day.
The disparity is vast with the Jackets and Nucks,
Be it a story of sticks, or helmets, or pucks,
The playoffs are near, the Canucks all but clinched,
For the Canucks, Rick Nash would have been a good pinch,
from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province, Now that every NHL official carries a laptop wherever he goes during the season, he is subject to directives on what to do and what calls to emphasize, depending upon whatever whim happens to hit them at head office — whether it comes from the director of officiating, or from Colin Campbell or whomever wishes to send a missive. That...
from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, When the game started, they made more noise than the Canucks’ faithful — and this did not escape the notice of at least one of the Canucks’ players.
“I love the Jets and their fan-base,” Kevin Bieksa said before last night’s meeting with the Phoenix Coyotes.
“To see them come in here and out-cheer our fans is great from their...
Playoffs: So Close; So Far
Last night, the Canucks ________ and they did so _________!
You fill in the blanks.
Now let’s get down to business; you have some reading to do as I have put together a fantastic list of Canucks articles/blogs/posts/stories from across the entire interwebzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Sorry, I’m falling asleep already just thinking of Saturday’s game against Columbus...
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Antoine Vermette had a goal and added two assists as the Phoenix Coyotes held on for a 5-4 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night.
The Coyotes won for the second time in eight games (2-4-2) after overcoming an early 2-0 deficit against a rejuvenated Canucks squad that featured several different forward and defense combinations....
Ok Next Game is the Breakout Game
I wrote in the preview for this game that this would be a defensive struggle and closer to 2-1 than 5-4 so uh there goes my expertise. The Canucks opponent doesn’t seem to matter these days, the games will feature tons of goals and even sloppy play no matter who is in the road whites.
It’s so bad that some are beginning to wonder if the Canucks...
Live from the Ted Darling Memorial Press Box...
We've got a dandy percolating here in Buffalo.
My focus tonight will be on the two Calder Trophy candidates:
Buffalo's Cody Hodgson vs. Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog.
Each were OHL snipers who have transitioned nicely to the NHL.
After playing so well last month, very little has gone right in March for the Vancouver Canucks and Phoenix Coyotes.
While the Canucks don't have to worry about missing the playoffs like the Coyotes, they have bigger problems. The Sedin twins are slumping mightily and Vancouver, which hosts Phoenix on Wednesday night, needs them to return to All-Star form to have a chance of...
