Happy Birthday To You…
This is a new feature on NWSB and its purpose is to let you know, if you are the girlfriend of the player or just a stalker, what you can get him for his birthday.

We’ll have a column up for a specific player the week of his birthday because we all know leaving birthday presents until...
Thomas Drance of Canucks Army posted an interesting tidbit the other day regarding the Sloan Sports Conference over the weekend where Brian Burke was quoted for some classic controversial lines. After dismissing the value of advanced stats, Burke went on to explain the evaluation process in Vancouver before the team drafter Ryan Kesler under Burke's control. Burke told the conferences...
Canucks victims of “dead puck“ trend?
Last year, the Vancouver Canucks led the NHL in virtually every major category, except nasal enormity and absolute douchiness (both of those areas of course being dominated handily by the Boston Bruin’s Brad Marchand).
Certainly the most glamorous and important of those categories was goals scored, and the Canucks have...
For some reasons, kids these days are showing off their
sweet dances moves more than ever at sporting events around the world.
Back on Tuesday, this little Vancouver Canucks fan named Jack Millos was
caught on the Rogers Centre Jumbotron during the Canucks loss to the Dallas
Stars showing off his moves for the fans in the stands.
Watch as he breaks it...
On Wednesday, we regaled you with the amusing story of a young Vancouver Canucks fan who delighted anyone who watched the video courtesy of some pretty fly dance moves he demonstrated to LMFAO’s “I’m Sexy and I Know It” at a recent Canucks game. But there was, thankfully, much more to the story. The video [...]
from Ian Austin of the Vancouver Province, With the Vancouver Canucks’ next playoff run close on the horizon, the riot-ravaged city of Vancouver is planning a scaled-back celebration for 2012.
Perhaps the most-studied evening in Vancouver history, the June 15, 2011, Stanley Cup Riot has been subjected to four reviews, and city staff are wading through 129 recommendatons as they...
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Mike Ribeiro scored twice and the surging Dallas Stars took the Pacific Division lead by beating the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Tuesday.
Ribeiro's 16th goal of the season midway through the third period provided insurance when he tipped a Michael Ryder pass behind goalie Roberto Luongo.
In the second period, he gave the Stars a 2-1 lead 2 minutes...
Ugly Game. Uglier Effort
Tuesday night’s game against the Dallas Stars was another dud for the Vancouver Canucks, who appear to be faring no better at home then they were on the road. The performances have actually gotten worse as regulation losses have found their way back into the regular rotation.
Ultimately though this will be forgotten in a week, and a hazy memory in a month...
The Winnipeg Jets have not been victorious against the Vancouver Canucks since October 28th, 1995.
That’s 6218 days or 17 years & 9 days. That’s over 537 million seconds, 8.9 million minutes or 150,000 hours.
Captain Ladd of Maple Ridge, BC
Now that’s really not saying much because since then, the Canucks have beaten the Jets not once, not...
Canucks All Access – The Week of Bad Beats
The Vancouver Canucks beat the St. Louis Blues in the debut of this year’s trade acquisitions last Thursday, showing Zack Kassian, Samuel Pahlsson and Marc-Andre Gragnani a taste of the good life before being blown out by both the Sabres and Stars at home.
Roberto Luongo was pulled after allowing three goals on the first seven shots...
Last night's hockey game in Vancouver came down to one key factor: the Dallas Stars were hungrier for victory than the Canucks. That much was obvious at various junctures of the game, but especially in the third period.
The Stars outworked and outhustled the Canucks, and took advantage of some coverage breakdowns and a strictly average goaltending performance from Roberto...
from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, In the last stretch of Blues’ games, a few of the NHL’s top players have failed to muster a shot on goal. Chicago’s Marian Hossa, San Jose’s Joe Thornton and Vancouver’s Henrik Sedin came up empty, while twin brother Daniel Sedin of the Canucks directed one puck toward the net.
Blues coach Ken Hitchcock believes the...
Good morning! I’ll keep this short and simple. I’ve compiled a list of all the best…and arguably worst Canucks articles from across the internet. You must read them all or you shall self-destruct.

The Vancouver Canucks got back on the winning track their last time out, picking up a much-needed two points as they continue their quest for the Western Conference's top seed.
While the Montreal Canadiens have little chance to climb into the East playoff picture, they're coming off a rare impressive effort of their own.
Seeking a two-game sweep of Montreal, Vancouver tries...
