You feel like you have seen everything the sport has to offer and you don’t think they can show you how much tougher they can be. Jacob Markstrom decided recently that he had...

Vancouver Canucks: Finding the Mark

The Vancouver Canucks are currently clinging to the third spot in the Pacific Division, and it may be the last playoff spot the way the Western Conference has shaped up. Would it be crazy for Vancouver to rely on a goalie that has only played more than 16 games in a season once in his career? Perhaps not.
