Keith Ballard escapes the Vancouver Canucks doghouse

Rejuvenated Ballard boosts blue line One year ago in the playoffs Keith Ballard appeared to be Alain Vigneault’s favourite whipping boy, as he was frequently dropped from the post season lineup and fell victim to several less than flattering appraisals by his coach. To his credit, the expensive free agent defenceman, acquired from the Florida Panthers (Vancouver’s favoured players...

Canucks Bieksa Pretends to be Kesler in Radio Interview

After Game 4 between the Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings was in the record books Wednesday, Canadian Mike aka Mike Dunsmore of FOX Sports Radio did a radio interview with Ryan Kesler. Or so he thought. Listen to the interview and you can figure out who it was. Dunsmore (@CanadianMike101) tweeted this at 2:16pm pacific time on Saturday afternoon: Kevin Bieksa is a beauty...

Luongo doesn't want to be distraction

Six seasons ago, Roberto Luongo's attitude would have been different.

Kesler and Lapierre told to zip it.

Vancouver Canucks center Maxim Lapierre during a game against the Colorado Avalanche on March 16, 2011. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) I couldn't resist with this one. The most unlikable team in the NHL has told a few of their players to quit yapping. You can't make this stuff up. I guess the coaching staff for the Vancouver Canucks figured out that the rest of the NHL was tired...

2012 canucks playoff song

Yes we all know the Vancouver Canucks don't have the best fans. (I'm of course referring to the 1000's of fans that sit on their hands in suits during Canucks games) NOT the die hard fans that can't afford tickets that watch games in sports bars all over BC 82 games a year. Yes we all know the Vancouver Canucks came up one game short of winning the cup last year...

Vancouver Canucks Birthday Presents: Alex Edler

And many more… The man of the hour is Alex Edler who will turn 26 years of age on Saturday (April 21), a day before the biggest game of the season for the Vancouver Canucks. It’s also a game where it’d be awfully nice for him to step up his game because you know the Kings would love to capitalize on more defensive gaffes by the Canucks. Edler’s stats this series are somewhat...

Roberto Luongo done in Vancouver?

However, Roberto Luongo posted his lowest games played mark...

Kings-Canucks Preview

The Vancouver Canucks will have a new second line Sunday when they attempt to stay alive in the Stanley Cup playoffs against the Los Angeles Kings.

Stanley Cup Playoffs: Round 1 Wrap-up: Cory Schneider is only winner in Vancouver Canucks elimination

If you’re going to lose, do it with your best. That’s how Vancouver Canucks coach Alain Vigneault approached the series after going down in the series 0-2.

Either way, his playoffs performance, despite a lack of wins...

Saturday Night Hockey Points

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,  • What a hockey summer this might be: The possibilities of Tim Thomas, Roberto Luongo, Rick Nash and Jarome Iginla being available, and that’s just the beginning. • Pavel Datsyuk didn’t disappear in the Detroit-Nashville series. Ryan Suter made him disappear. Wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see the Red Wings go hard after...
