Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks: The Hometown Kid

The fan base for the Calgary Flames has amazingly packed the Saddledome all year (19,162 average attendance, 99.3% of seating capacity) despite a difficult season. Their positive attitude through adversity could be due to Calgary’s lone Stanley Cup in 1988. Then there is the Vancouver Canucks’ fan base. While their attendance numbers are also good (18,428 average attendance,...

The Shinkaruk-Granlund trade is a confusing one for the Canucks

The Vancouver Canucks need to rebuild and there’s pretty much no doubting that at this point. The club sits under .500 with just over 20 games to play, and with the trade deadline upcoming, you’d think they’d move their veteran pieces and embrace a youth movement and allow some of their young prospects they’ve developed in the AHL time in the NHL. Well, the Canucks traded...

Markus Granlund Is Worth A Look

If you drafted Mikael Granlund expecting a solid season after he burst onto the scene late last year you’re in the same boat with me so lets cry together. Eh, it’s not that serious considering his ADP, but if Mike has spurned you you might consider taking a look at his brother Markus Granlund, C (2 A, 1 SOG, +3). Markus has four points in his last two games and eight points in...

Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? Mikael Granlund Shines, Markus Joins The Party

Mikael Granlund (2 A, 2 SOG, +1) is a rookie I haven’t mentioned yet and shame on me for that.

Still, that's no excuse for overlooking a guy who before coming to North America dominated the Finnish...
