According to TSN's Farhan Lalji Canucks defenceman Keith Ballard has struggled through the road to recovery from a concussion, crushing allegations over managerial interference during his recovery.

Your 2011-12 Canucks MVP: Dan Hamhuis

Over the last couple of months, as Daniel and Henrik Sedin have gone into slumps (coupled with the NHL’s return to the dead puck era), there has been a lot of scuttlebutt among Canucks fans about who the team’s MVP is.

LA Kings vs. Canucks blog: love ’em & hate ‘em

Far from being another nail in the coffin, the Canucks have won three straight since Daniel’s injury and looked poised to finish the season and enter the playoffs on a high note.

Canucks v Kings

Always great when Manny scores.

Evening Line

“I had a lot of different stuff.  I had dizziness and a lot of headaches during the day. I was sleeping 16-18 hours a day and, when I tried to do some light workouts, I ended up getting real sick and I’d be in bed for four days. By around the end of February, we almost had no choice but to just shut me down and not do anything. At that point, I couldn’t get through a day without...
