29. For scoring chance data, news and insight follow the Canucks’ nation network representative.

Edler led the way for the #Canucks in the period with a +3 chance differential. Since the Chicago game, Edler and Bieksa have been unreal.

28. For passionate posts, news and insight follow the Canucks’ SB Nation network representative.

…and, just like that, the Canucks clinch. Thanks Calgary.Northwest champs for the 4th straight season and fifth time in six seasons.

27. For a veteran Canucks bloggers offering insight and opinion you’ve got to work the corners.

— Canucks Hockey Blog (@canuckshockey) March 27, 2012

24. For blog posts, Photoshop greatness and more follow these smug Canucks content creators.

Most popular search term on #smugnation so far today: Duncan Keith Walking Dead. Thanks for the new blog idea, random googler!#zombies

— Smug Nation (@Smug_Nation) March 28, 2012

23. For sporadic blog posts relating to all things Canucks follow this one of a kind Canuck fan.

Officiating has been just plain incompetent. Dont know which was worse, Edler’s “hold” or Penner’s interference. #Canucks #Kings

— The Canuck Fan (@TheCanuckFan) March 27, 2012

22. For Canucks coverage and blogs covering all sports in the Pacific Northwest follow the beat’s tweets.

— Hockey Independent (@HockeyIndie) March 27, 2012

20. For Canucks coverage, blog posts and opinion follow this jerk’s hockey blog. WARNING: Follow at your own peril; I hear this guy is a Bruins fan, too.

For the record, Dan Murphy has a black “skull” tie he rocks during game broadcasts. And no, I don’t stalk him. It’s called “following” now.

— Kevin Vanstone (@FlyingVHockey) March 28, 2012

Your 2011-12 Canucks MVP: Dan Hamhuis

Over the last couple of months, as Daniel and Henrik Sedin have gone into slumps (coupled with the NHL’s return to the dead puck era), there has been a lot of scuttlebutt among Canucks fans about who the team’s MVP is. Roberto Luongo has been a popular choice of late (despite the fact that his backup has better numbers). I’ve heard a lot of names, but I haven’t heard a...

The under-appreciated Canucks funny man Alain Vigneault

Ho hum! When the Vancouver Canucks wrapped up the Northwest division title last week, hardly anybody cared. Some had bigger goals in mind while others dismissed the Canucks winning the worst division in hockey as an accomplishment akin to walking down the block without tripping and falling on your face. Still, it’s an accomplishment that highlights the stunning success Alain Vigneault...

Vancouver does not want riots again...Our city video

The 2012 NHL playoffs are right around the corner. We all remember what happened in Vancouver BC last year after the Canucks lost game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals to the Boston Bruins. June 15 2011 will NOT be a day people of Vancouver want to remember. Yes indeed. Vancouver rioted. The city made the worlds headlines for all the wrong reasons. The exact opposite type of exposure...

We are all #Canucks on Twitter – part two

Tweet This! Part 2 The Top 50 #Canucks friends to follow on Twitter – every day this week NWSB will post 10 of the top 50 follows in #Canucks nation in no particular order. Notice someone important (like yourself?) not on the list? Add your honourable mentions in the comments section and they might just make the cut for a follow-up post. As the final games of the regular season...

Can Vancouver replicate last year's playoff success?

Entering this season, the Vancouver Canucks were still the favorites to win the Western Conference. Despite losing Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup final, the core which featured stars like Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Ryan Kesler and Roberto Luongo found a way to regain their composure and once again dominate the opposition.With six games left in their regular season, the Canucks are...

Game 77 Avalanche vs. Canucks: Let’s not jump to conclusions

Pre-Playoff Sweep Perhaps Wednesday night’s matchup between the Vancouver Canucks and Colorado Avalanche is going to go like this: "Nice burger bro," thought Bieksa as his stomach was crushed to oblivion. (Photo - The Canadian Press, Darryl Dyck) The Canucks will get all pumped up before the game and we may see a couple of locker room shots showing such emotion. They...

Colorado Avalanche vs. Canucks betting odds & handicapping preview – March 28th

Canucks look for season sweep against Avs A couple of streaks are on the line Wednesday night when the Colorado Avalanche, losers of three straight games visit the Vancouver Canucks who have won three straight. The Canucks have lulled their way to results as of late and will have to be on against yet another in a long line of opponents desperately trying to make their way into the...

Game 78 Stars vs. Canucks: Rollin’ like a pebble

Is it just me or are the Vancouver Canucks winning but still not getting any credit? Yes, it's been four in a row now and NWSB Insider Josh Hall says it's about time we trust the Captain Henrik Sedin. Who will start against the Dallas Stars Friday? Should it be Cory Schneider? He's the only one to beat them in three tries. Bah humbug to all you bandwagoners. Shame on you.

This should do the trick: Vancouver Canucks unveil anti-rioting video

Just one day after Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson announced the city’s plans which officials hope will prevent the ugly scene that occurred and the bedlam that ensued in June 2011 after the Canucks lost to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals and fans roamed the streets and rioted, the team [...]

Canucks improve to 6-0 vs. Avs

Backup goalie Cory Schneider made 43 saves, Chris Higgins scored short-handed and the Vancouver Canucks extended their domination of Colorado with a 1-0 victory Wednesday night over the fading Avalanche. It was the second straight 1-0 win for the Canucks, who beat the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night behind top goalie Roberto Luongo. Vancouver (47-21-9) won its fourth straight...

LA Kings vs. Canucks blog: love ’em & hate ‘em

The Kings Are Dead To add another wrinkle to this weird Canucks season, it turns out the solution to the lethargy plaguing the team in 2012 was the subtraction of Daniel Sedin. Far from being another nail in the coffin, the Canucks have won three straight since Daniel’s injury and looked poised to finish the season and enter the playoffs on a high note. This team is more complicated...

Thursday Links: Canucks Morning Java

As we watch our Canucks only two weeks from the beginning of the playoffs, one gets the sense that things are overall, going pretty well. You may even say they are going as planned. Alas, there are varying opinions on these matters so below is a collection of all the weird and wacky, tickling and tacky stories, posts, articles and quandaries on the current happening of the Vancouver...

Fantasy Hockey ONE (3/29)

  This may have been the only goal but Colorado threw the entire kitchen sink at Cory Schneider.  Schneider responded in a big way.  We will get into that in a bit about goalie controversies and the such.  Last night had a little of everything as we finally got down to nine teams in each conference having a "realistic" shot at a playoff berth.  That...
