Today, we have a special contributor in the NHL department, Dean Pennington of TBIV.net.
Teams are salivating over Roberto Luongo now that he’s been made available, but is he worth it?
(First off, my apologies for the lack of updates this past week. The Winter bug caught me off guard and rendered me useless for most of the week. We’ll be back full force this week into this weekend.)
He’s been nominated for three Vezina trophies, one Hart Trophy and two Lester Pearson trophies, winning none. He’s carried his team to within one game of Cup glory in 2011, a season in which he put together one of the best seasons by a goalie in recent memory (38-15-4, 2.11, .928) and would have won the Vezina if Tim Thomas ...
BEST OF MAXIM
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...
A roster of Canadians but no Canucks
Lists are great. Nothing sparks more debate than someone publishing a list. But when you create of list of hockey talent, well that’s just an invite for the most heated argument on Canadian soil.
One year away from the 2014 Sochi Olympics and TSN pundit Ray Ferraro has unveiled his list, his dream team, of hopeful Canadians that should wear...

Headline: Surging Canucks head to Minnesota looking to extend streak.
The Vancouver Canucks conclude their mini-two game road trip with a date in Minnesota Thursday night having won three straight games and benefitting from some stellar goaltending from Roberto Luongo, although Cory Schneider is expected to start Thursday. The Canucks have won three straight...
Corey Schneider made 22 saves and Mason Raymond had a power-play goal and an assist in the second period to lead Vancouver past the sputtering Minnesota Wild 4-1 on Thursday night, the fourth straight win for the Canucks.
Niklas Backstrom gave up two scores in each of the first two periods for the Wild, and Josh Harding was in the net for the final frame. Daniel Sedin, Chris Higgins...
Love ‘Em & Hate ‘em
Boxscore | Recap
Definitely wouldn’t want to be a Wild fan right now. Their two big off-season acquisitions haven’t changed anything in Minnesota. It’s the same old bland brand of hockey.
The Canucks meanwhile are now off to their best start in eight years, so there’s that.
1. Stellar Schneider
It’s been a long time since Cory Schneider...
Calgary in Vancouver
The Canucks are back in action tonight hosting the Calgary Flames. The Flames are coming off of their first two game win streak of the season with wins over the Columbus Blue Jackets and Detroit Red Wings.
The Canucks are also coming into tonight’s game on a hot streak, having won their last four games in a row.
Tonight marks the second of four meetings between...
The Vancouver Canucks are enjoying having two established goaltenders for now.
The Calgary Flames certainly don't know what it's like to have that luxury.
It's not clear who will start in goal for either team - for vastly different reasons - when they meet Saturday night in Vancouver, with the Canucks seeking a fifth straight victory.
Roberto Luongo continues to be...
While the world waits for a Roberto Luongo trade (along with possibly many other deals) to happen, Luongo's onetime nemesis' time with the Boston Bruins has officially come to a close. Given that Tim Thomas is taking a year off to "reconnect with friends, family and faith", does this trade mean anything at all in fantasy leagues? Continue reading "Pick Six...
