Preds shutout in BC; playoffs near impossible

After back-to-back losses Tueday and Wednesday night, the Nashville Predators see their postseason hopes dim greatly. According to SportsClubStats.com, it is virtually impossible for the Predators to head to the playoffs as their chance at getting in lowers to 0.1%. It is safe to say it is time to look to the offseason.  Wednesday's loss came from the hands of a struggling...

Carol Schram: Vancouver Canucks: Gold for Dan Hamhuis and Roberto Luongo, Utica News

They did it! Canada becomes the first team to go undefeated in men's hockey at the Olympics since the Soviet Union in 1984 and the first to repeat as champs since the Soviet/Unified teams tallied three wins in a row in 1984, 1988 and 1992. It's hard to believe that we were all so worried just a few days ago, after the narrow victory against Latvia. But full points to the...

John Tortorella On Gold Medal Game: ‘I Hope Sweden Wins’

Vancouver Canucks coach John Tortorella certainly won’t win any fans in Canada with his decision to cheer for Team Sweden in Sunday’s gold medal game at the 2014 Winter Olympics. With goaltender Roberto Luongo and defenseman Dan Hamhuis representing Canada and forwards Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin and defenseman Alex Edler on Team Sweden, Tortorella could have pleaded the fifth...

Carol Schram: Vancouver Canucks: Daniel Sedin, Alex Edler, Dan Hamhuis Go for Sochi Gold

There we have it. Sweden will meet Canada for the gold medal in men's hockey on Sunday morning in Sochi. Roberto Luongo probably won't get back in net, especially after Carey Price's 31-save shutout against the Americans. I guess he's learned a thing or two about dealing with these situations graciously. Here's his Tweet from last night: Keep your friends...

The Vancouver Canucks Sliding Downward

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, The Canucks ticked off seven straight losses to stagger into the Olympic break. They are in 10th place in the Western Conference, 1 point behind No. 8 Dallas. The Canucks might have to get familiar with this type of gear-grinding. Injuries have rocked the Canucks. The pre-break limpers included Henrik Sedin, Kevin Bieksa, Dan Hamhuis...

Mike Gillis on team: ‘We’re going to be all right’

When it was presented to Brad Richardson that the Olympic break is coming at just the right time for the Vancouver Canucks, he vehemently disagreed. “We could have used it two weeks ago,” an astute Richardson pointed out. What has happened since has been disastrous, and will rank among the most crushing stretches in Canucks history. Over the course of a seven-game losing streak...

Canucks Can’t Wait For Olympic Break

The Vancouver Canucks were supposed to be a contender this season, but over the short-term they have been the worst team in the league.  They have lost their last six games.  They have one more to go before the break as they play Toronto today.  This would drop the Canucks out of the playoffs.  They are currently ninth in the West Conference.  They are one point back of eighth...

In December I posted my picks for the Canadian Olympic Team and the US Olympic Team.  While everyone on the US Olympic Team appears ready to go, there are two people on my Canadian Olympic Team that would be unavailable.  Steve Stamkos is out of the Olympics because he has not fully recovered from his broken leg.  Kris Letang was also a member of my team (though not the actual...

Time For Some Roster Changes In Vancouver

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, You can say that this is still the best of Canada’s seven National Hockey League teams — at this moment. But it won’t be for long if general manager Mike Gillis stands pat with this roster. Suddenly it’s obvious what needs to be done here: find a way to move some of these veteran assets, despite the fact almost every pertinent veteran...

Canucks to Sign Vinny Prospal to a PTO

Crisis Averted? As the Canucks center’s continue to drop like flies, management has been grasping at straws for an immediate response to this recent run of injuries down the middle. And according to Sportsnet, they may have found their answer in 38-year old forward, Vinny Prospal. #Canucks GM Mike Gillis says Vinny Prospal will likely play this weekend for the #Comets — Sportsnet...

Canucks Luongo, Hamhuis ‘proud, excited’ to play for Team Canada in Sochi

Marty Hamhuis hasn't slept the same since his son, Dan, returned to his home province 3½ years ago to play hockey for the Vancouver Canucks. “Since he became a Canuck, I have to get out of bed an hour earlier every day just to talk hockey with people,” Mr. Hamhuis laughed Tuesday. “Everybody is good about it.

The Canucks Fan Olympic Primer

Current For the majority of our readers, the last few weeks have been spent wondering whether Dan Hamhuis would make Team Canada or whether Roberto Luongo would start; Scott Yzerman‘s delivered on one and time will reveal with the second.

Offensive woes continue for Canucks In nine quick seconds the Vancouver Canucks dropped two points to Chicago and continued what has been a terrible November for the team.

Canucks need defence to pitch in on offence

There’s nothing wrong with the Vancouver Canucks’ offence that their defence can’t fix. The lack of goals by Canuck defencemen is one of the biggest contributing factors to the National Hockey League team’s worst regular-season scoring crisis in seven years. “When we’re scoring as little as we have — six goals in the last five games — the defence definitely shares...
