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.
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...
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.

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.
What the Canucks and their fans have...
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,...
A season-high five-game winning streak has helped vault the Phoenix Coyotes into the Western Conference playoff picture.

Colorado Avalanche (28-25-4) at Vancouver Canucks (35-15-6)
When: 10:00 PM ET, Wednesday, February 15, 2012...
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...
The hard-luck Phoenix Coyotes had work to do when Ilya Bryzgalov bolted. No worries, says Adam Gretz. Enter rejuvenated goalie Mike Smith and Dave Tippett's resilient squad is on the postseason doorstep after five straight wins.
Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith, Pittsburgh center Evgeni Malkin and St. Louis left wing David Perron have been selected as the NHL's 'Three Stars' for the week ending February 12.
The Vancouver Canucks will try to continue their recent dominance of Colorado when they welcome the Avalanche for tonight's Northwest Division clash at Rogers Arena.
Ryan Kesler scored the winner in the sixth round of the shootout, leading the Vancouver Canucks to a 2-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Monday night.
