Better team: This year’s Canucks or last year’s Canucks?

The Canucks took back top spot in the conference Saturday night with a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames. With only three games remaining in the regular season, the Canucks sit one point up on the St Louis Blues and tied in points with the New York Rangers for top spot in the entire league (although the Canucks would lose the tie breaker). So the question burning in my head right...

Dallas Stars vs. Canucks blog: love ’em & hate ‘em

Friday Night Full of Stars The Vancouver Canucks recent schedule has allowed them to play kingmaker in the race for the final playoff spots in the Western Conference.

Calgary Flames vs. Canucks blog: love ’em & hate ‘em
