from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province, Perhaps now the Vancouver Canucks are disintegrating before their eyes, those so utterly determined to make excuses for these guys will give it a rest.
When you lose to the worst team in the Eastern Conference in your own rink in the middle of a homestand and get the crap kicked out of your alleged stars in the bargain, it doesn’t get much worse. How coach Alain Vigneault explains this to his friends back in Montreal would certainly be an interesting conversation on which to eavesdrop as now that his team has nothing to play for they’ve decided to stop playing. And as you go down the roster man by man, there are just a few who can hold their heads up. The rest are just flat out embarrassing themselves as they not only lost, they watched a rag tag bunch with just as little to play for as themselves throw sand in their face. Their response was that of the 95-pound weakling. And if you wonder why there is complete panic on the airwaves th...

Canucks: It's all about offence as Gillis heads to GM meetings
"I think they have slowed the game down enough with the way the referees are maybe calling it the last couple of months," Sedin said. "But I think that's why you see a lot of injuries because the game is so fast and guys are flying through the neutral zone and no one can...
The Canucks may have been beaten up by the Habs last night, but Zack Kassian did make his fighting debut in an impressive effort, standing up for his team midway through the second period. Check out Kassian's decent debut with his fists here.
For some reasons, kids these days are showing off their

Watch as he breaks it...
I can say from first-hand experience that retail sales is a tough gig. Convincing people to sell products sucks. Yet the Canucks and Manny Malhotra decided to have some fun with the experience at Sport Check, setting up Manny as "Alex" the salesmen for some unsuspecting fans. Check it out here via Canucks.com.
GM Mike Gillis and the Canucks have been sounding off over the last few days in regards to NHL officiating, rule changes related to scoring, and goaltender interference. Check out Ben Kuzma's Twitter feed here for a great summation of the quotes coming out of Vancouver. Does the team have a point or is this just political posturing in anticipation of another lengthy playoff push?
from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province, His team is looking more vulnerable than venerable, but Mike Gillis knows the way the game is officiated—especially in the postseason—could determine how far the Vancouver Canucks progress this spring. And when asked how he can best address the hot topic without sounding like a whiner when NHL general managers meet Monday and Tuesday...
WTF was that?
The Vancouver Canucks jumped out to an early lead but were blasted by the Canadiens on Saturday in a 4-1 loss at Rogers Arena. Carey Price kept the Habs in the game during a busy first period allowing Blake Geoffrion to respond in the second, deflecting his first as a Canadien past Roberto Luongo.

Morning puck addicts!
Well, well, well what do we have here? A Habs win over the mighty Vancouver Canucks with All-Star defenseman, Andrei Markov, returning to the lineup?
Who woulda thunk it. With only 13 games left in this miserable season, the Habs, or more to the point, Markov, have given their fans a reason to watch games again.
How good was it to see Markov back in...
The dog days of March are here. The Vancouver Canucks have nothing left to play for in a division long since wrapped up, and the prospect of another long, punishing playoff run as seen the effort levels lately drop to a more manageable peak.
It’s a tad disappointing to see these losses, but who will really remember these games once the playoffs start?

Whatever's going on, the general assumption is that the Canucks are dogging it and saving a little extra for the playoffs with the division and a top two seed locked up.
But...is that easy to just flip the switch? Is it easier when you have the experience of 15 playoff wins?
I'm not sure what happens this Spring, I could easily see this team going out in any round...
