Mats Sundin’s #13 banner was raised to the rafters of the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Saturday night, and it made me think back to his time in Vancouver. Sundin, as you might remember, spent half a season in blue and green during the 2008-09 season. The Mats Sundin that Canucks fans got to see, at age 38, wasn’t of hall of fame caliber but he wasn’t a bust either.
One of the players who is rumored to be on the trade block at this year`s deadline is Cory Schneider of the Vancouver Canucks. Vancouver has two strong goalies in Schneider and Roberto Luongo and both would like to be the team`s clear number one goalie. Luongo is signed until 2022 with a $5.33 million salary cap hit. That contract is prohibitive to move. Schneider is signed...
The Nucks Need to Shape Up
If you’re like me, you believe there is a higher being in the form of “Hockey Gods.”
The Hockey Gods can strike at any time or shine upon your falling hopes when you have stopped believing.
One bad hand, We're goners!
They can be cruel, daunting, antagonizing and tease the hell out of you all at the same time.

Are You That Canucks DJ?
When attending a Canucks home game, one of the smaller pleasures, in addition to abusing the supporters of other team especially Leafs fans, is in hearing the choice of music played by the in-house DJ (Dave) at different points in the game.
In-House DJ Dave Levinson has some competition, or some new songs to play.
As with most things in this world,...
As I pointed out last week, here is the conundrum Vancouver Canucks fans find themselves in: the team has been winning in 2012, but my god has the entertainment factor diminished.
Still, the team has been winning and for the first 30 years of this franchise, they weren’t doing that. But in the past ten years or so, the team has made winning with style their...

Another game, another shootout for the Vancouver Canucks, but at least they are getting the hang of it now. Â For the eighth time in their past thirteen games, The Canucks battled into overtime and took their chances in the shootout. The Canucks deserved a bit better fate in this one (should have won it in regular time), but none the less, got the job done in the skills completion...

It was a bit of a let-down last night in Cowtown for the Canucks but please allow me to brighten your morning.
Below is a collection of Canucks related stories from around the interwebz for you and your loved ones to feast your eyes on.
So without further ado, I present the greatest list OF ALL TIME.

Well to answer that question, just...
It was if we were transported back in time. Seeing Mats Sundin standing at center ice at the Air Canada Center receiving the plaudits and admiration of over 19,000 grateful Toronto fans for his great career.....a nice moment for a classy gentlemanâ¦â¦ and then the game began.
Apparently the current edition of the Blue-And-White decided to honor the former captain not only...
There’s that shootout again…
There was a time when a Vancouver Canucks/Flames game was appointment viewing. If games against the Oilers over the past decade have been defined by speed and skill displays, contests against the Flames have traditionally been trench wars.
The rivalry has waned in recent years as the Flames and Canucks have chased completely different trajectories...
Shootouts have been very kind to the Colorado Avalanche all season, except earlier this month when they hosted Vancouver.
The Canucks are getting plenty of practice in tiebreakers, but they hope they won't need one Wednesday night as they look to take at least one point from the Avalanche for the 15th consecutive meeting.
Colorado (28-25-4) had won all seven of its shootouts...
