In our latest Vancouver Canucks hockey blog post beat blogger C-Mac is back with a great little story about the validity of GM Mike Gillis to be the true MVP of the Vancouver Canucks, not Ryan Kesler, or Daniel Sedin, or Henrik Sedin. It is clear that Gillis could put the Canucks over the top.

Not many people would welcome a trade from the sun and warmth of South Beach to the Pacific Northwest. David Booth is thrilled to be moving three time zones west.
On Saturday, the Florida Panthers dealt Booth, center Steve Reinprecht and a third-round draft pick in 2013 to the Vancouver Canucks for forwards Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm.
For Booth, it is a trade from an NHL...
Given all the fuss about goaltending around these parts, Bodog is glad to make some money off the argument. Here are their odds on what has apparently become the Annual October Debate in this province:
Who will start more games in the month of November 2011?
Roberto Luongo (VAN) -500
Cory Schneider (VAN) +300
Who will have more wins during...
Canucks insider Kevin Vanstone breaks down the Game 10 matchup between the St. Louis Blues vs. Vancouver Canucks. A 3-0 Vancouver loss. Along with Kevin Bieksa, David Booth and the American Express line, (Ryan Kesler, Christopher Higgins) struggled through some early growing pains versus the Blues.
Have you heard? Roberto Luongo is not off to a good start. With some Canucks fans calling for his head (or at least his starting job) we're using this week's Fantasy Hockey Faceoff to examine Luongo from a poolie's perspective and try to figure out whether he'll turn things around.
Canucks blogger points out there's a massive history of trades between the Vancouver Canucks and Florida Panthers in the NHL. As shocking as the timing of the David Booth trade was, the fact the deal occured with the Panthers was about as easy to predict as the crowd reaction when Roberto Luongo lets in a goal. This time its David Booth for Marco Sturm and Mikael Samuelsson...
The Vancouver Canucks are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get. Or, rather who will show up for games. The Blues went into Rogers Arena last night and out played, out worked, and out muscled a team that should have been somewhat fresh, given their effort in Edmonton the night before. The Blues systematically dictated the pace of the game, and imposed...

It's been a fairly underreported story, but apparently Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo was replaced in Tuesday night's loss to the Edmonton Oilers by backup Cory Schneider and apparently Schneider will make a scheduled start against the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night with Luongo on the bench.
(Which means he'll probably pitch a shutout, and give his coach...
The Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers will meet for the second time in less than two weeks at Rexall Place on Tuesday night, with both teams looking to establish some early season momentum.
Scoring the first goal was key to the Canucks' success a season ago. They are quickly learning this year how hard it is to play from behind.
