Vancouver Canucks: Analyzing Bo Horvat’s Value

One of the reasons why the Vancouver Canucks have fallen off the Western Conference’s list of powerhouses has been because of their success, or lack thereof, in the draft.

Canucks’ OT strategy is to play for the shootout

The introduction of 3-on-3 hockey has brought new excitement to NHL overtimes. Back when the league was rolling with 4-on-4 play in the extra period, teams were often sitting back and waiting for the shootout out of fear of slipping up and making a mistake which would cost an extra point. This overly cautious approach has been mostly abandoned with 3-on-3 hockey, but the Vancouver...
