What's laughable is a Canucks fans would come up with this spoof video on another team in the NHL diving. The Vancouver Canucks are the poster boys for diving and embellishment, if needed we can do a review of the offenders. This remotely amusing video, calls out the Brad Marchand for what a play during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Whatever. You would probably circle the earth twice with video tape, of all of the instances of the Canucks diving and embellishing calls.

Jealous of Chicago
It is time for the Canucks overachievers and underachievers update as the half season approaches, and there are some marked differences from the first list we produced.
The Canucks’ meek start gave way to an extended strong run, mainly on the backs of the goaltenders, but Vancouver now finds itself mired in a slump once more.
The team remains in the top ten of...
Let’s Go Boys!
Mornin’, everyone. The Canucks are in Ohio tonight to take on the Columbus Bluejackets, who despite winning their last two games are still dead last in the NHL. Vancouver is coming off of a disappointing Tuesday night shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks.
Tonight’s game is the first of a three game road trip that sees them play the Bluejackets twice. Seems kind...
What better time to get on a roll?
The Vancouver Canucks (11-6-4) are at home tonight playing host to the struggling San Jose Sharks (10-6-4). The Canucks are coming off a 4-2 loss against the Flames in Calgary on Sunday, while the Sharks beat the Nashville Predators on Saturday for just their third win in ten games.
The Canucks are off on a three game road trip after tonight’s...
AV…duck, the pitchforks are out!
The purpose of hockey is to win and the Canucks haven’t been taking two points away from games lately.
An overtime loss to Columbus combined with their recent string of efforts is enough to make this quite level-headed Canucks fan thoughtfully finger the panic button.
Perhaps the window is closing, perhaps they’re merely the latest reincarnation...
Matt Calvert carried the puck almost from end to end, twice avoiding opposing players, before skating to the slot and scoring on a rising wrist shot to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 2-1 overtime victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night.
Calvert took a pass from Fedor Tyutin deep in the defensive zone and chipped the puck along the right boards while twice fighting...
His hockey stick knob... perverts.
"I started using this knob when I was sixteen..."
Man, didn't we all.
Bring It On SanHosers!
Some would argue the Canucks need the jaws of life right now, but they’ll have to settle for Jaws tonight as they play host to the San Jose Sharks.
It’s been a one-up one-down type of year for Vancouver as they’ve never been able to fire on all cylinders, never minding Ryan Kesler‘s injury woes.
It’s gauntlet time with 14 games in 26 games for the...
A Point Earned
It didn’t end exactly the way the Canucks wanted, but last night’s affair with the San Jose Sharks was a memorable display of hockey.
The teams traded scoring chances in a high-octane game that left little between the two clubs. It was one of those games where a tie would be well deserved for both, but the modern era of hockey dictates a winner and a loser now...
This article was in the Vancouver Sun today and it’s a scream… it’s a must read if you haven’t seen it.
Cam Cole, The Vancouver Sun --- *** Is Boston coach Claude Julien right? Are the Habs the biggest collection of divers and embellishers in the NHL? (Memo to Beantown bloggers: does this mean the Vancouver Canucks are off the hook?) Is it an affront to all that's...
Patrice Bergeron opened the scoring for the Bruins in their 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs
Let’s be honest; when Jay McClement scored to make the game 3-2, all of us Bruins fans were thinking the same thing.
“Oh no. Not this again.”
That’s because the Boston Bruins have had a nasty habit in recent games of losing games where they have been up late in games. On Sunday against...
Jesus Christ. How ******* awful are the Boston Bruins when have a lead in the third? Answer: Really ******* awful.
Little Lamb and the Capitals spoon feed the Bruins with an easy 3-0 lead and then the team decided to take the rest of the night off. Here's a picture of the team when they came out for the second period:
Capitals are third in the worst division...
BOSTON — The Bruins’ top line, technically speaking, is the line of David Krejci centering Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton. While that is a very nice line, a darn good line even, it’s becoming clearer that it’s not the Bruins’ top line.
That distinction should go to the “second line,” consisting of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and Tyler Seguin. That troika was at it...
It's never easy with the Bruins.
It looked like the Bruins were going to breeze right through this one as they came out of the gates to the tune of a 3-0 lead after one, thanks to a Brad Marchand short handed penalty shot, a Zdeno Chara cleanup, and a Dougie Hamilton power play rip.
It looked like the Caps were out of the Bruins league, however they proved everyone wrong. 2...
