On Monday, the Vancouver Canucks announced that oft-injured winger David Booth would be sent to their AHL affiliate, the Utica Comets.
While it isn’t a permanent vacation for the overpaid and under-performing winger, one has to wonder if this is really about conditioning, or rather message from the coaching staff and management to David Booth.
The Rise of Mike Santorelli
One of the earliest bright spots of the John Tortorella era to date has been the success of Mike Santorelli. The forward that was at one point seemingly destined for Utica – due mostly to his two-way contract – is now the staple of Vancouver‘s second line and a key cog in the functions of this hockey club as a whole.
What has most likely endeared...
David Booth is heading to upstate New York on a “conditioning assignment”.
An interesting development, as Booth was quoted today as saying that he will be joining the Canucks on their upcoming road trip, and then within hours, he was assigned to Utica on a ‘conditioning assignment’. In the CBA, a player that was placed on IR, can be assigned to the AHL on a conditioning...
The Vancouver Canucks had a successful weekend on many fronts. The Canucks kicked off the weekend with the signing of their two marquee players, Henrik Sedin and his twin brother Daniel Sedin. The team then honored one of their past stars raising Hall of Famer, Pavel Bure’s number 10 to the rafters and the club followed those two activities with a dominating win on the ice...
The Vancouver Canucks left for Phoenix today and the start of a daunting four-game road trip, but winger David Booth was headed in a different direction, which seems consistent with his time as a Canuck.
The injury-prone forward was dispatched to the American Hockey League’s Utica Comets on a conditioning assignment. Booth, 28, hasn't played since Oct. 24 in New Jersey when...
For a few moments, Pavel Bure traveled back in time with the Vancouver Canucks.
One of the most exciting players to ever dress for the team admitted Saturday night that it was an emotional experience to have his No. 10 retired in Vancouver.
''It was a great feeling,'' said Bure, nicknamed the Russian Rocket, after his jersey was raised to the rafters at Rogers Arena...
Roberto Luongo made 21 saves for his second shutout of the season, leading the Vancouver Canucks to a 4-0 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.
Daniel Sedin, Zack Kassian, Chris Higgins and Dan Hamhuis scored for the Canucks, who rebounded from a disappointing loss to Detroit on Wednesday with one of their best efforts of the season.
Henrik Sedin, who along with...
I stumbled upon this video series again from a Vancouver guy (making fun and) trying to be a Bruins fan during the 2011 Stanley Cup Final. “Comedian” Andrew Barber and Canucks supporter plays “Boston Greg” who is a die hahd Bruins fan.
His attempt at Boston accent is SO BAD it’s hilarious. So let’s re-live the demise of the Vancouver Canucks from the perspective of a...
The feast of the East is over for the Vancouver Canucks.
Through their first 16 games of the young National Hockey League season, the Canucks have played 11 Eastern Conference teams, winning seven, losing three and dropping another via shootout for a .682 winning percentage. That’s a pretty lofty number but it is nothing compared to what they will face this week in a four-game...
After raking up the Leafs Saturday night, the Canucks will head out for what promises to be their toughest stretch of games this season beginning Monday night in Phoenix. How will the Canucks start their Pacific division swing? Read on to find out.
Well I think I am man enough to admit I was wrong when I said that winning against Toronto wouldn’t be the cake walk it...
