Rational and irrational anger: Riley’s rants and raves

This week….oh I probably shouldn’t get started But here goes. Being stuck in second gear - Ugly, ugly hockey these past two weeks. Several tragic losses to inferior teams, and only barely scraping out a win against the feel-good Jets.

As Spring Approaches, The Luongo Questions Pop-Up Again

from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province, The coach said it and the general manager confirmed it. In their minds, there’s no doubt that Roberto Luongo is the starting goaltender. The only problem with the proclamation is when doubt starts to cloud the picture as the playoffs approach. In a solid season where the Vancouver Canucks stopper had just three regulation losses in January...

Game 70 Coyotes vs. Canucks: It’s desert dog day…

Is This Game… the Breakout Game? Josh is out sick today. Taking over his preview for tonight. March Madness has hit Vancouver but we’re not talking about basketball. Instead, the Canucks rough patches that have persisted throughout 2012 have put the city on high alert. They aren’t dominating opponents anymore, they’re losing on Hockey Night in Canada, and most troubling...

Line Combos, AV Gone Crazy?

Unless you were off hiding under a rock yesterday you've probably heard about Alain Vigneault's most recent line juggling, resulting in winger Mason Raymond landing alongside the Sedin twins. The switch is meant to motivate the slumping Sedins, giving notice to the rest of the lineup that the team's play of late has been unacceptable. What do you think of AV's newest...

The Game Is Always Changing

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province, Now that every NHL official carries a laptop wherever he goes during the season, he is subject to directives on what to do and what calls to emphasize, depending upon whatever whim happens to hit them at head office — whether it comes from the director of officiating, or from Colin Campbell or whomever wishes to send a missive. That...

Make Some Noise Vancouver

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, When the game started, they made more noise than the Canucks’ faithful — and this did not escape the notice of at least one of the Canucks’ players. “I love the Jets and their fan-base,” Kevin Bieksa said before last night’s meeting with the Phoenix Coyotes. “To see them come in here and out-cheer our fans is great from their...

Phoenix Coyotes vs. Canucks blog: love ’em & hate ‘em

Ok Next Game is the Breakout Game I wrote in the preview for this game that this would be a defensive struggle and closer to 2-1 than 5-4 so uh there goes my expertise.

It’s so bad that some are beginning to wonder if the Canucks...
