Vancouver Canucks season preview: Not another 101-point season

Plus: The Canucks weren't expected to be a good team last season, but they turned in a good year anyway, finishing the season with an impressive 101 points. They return a very similar team this season with a defense full of players with young legs and a bundle of scorers who have played in the Canucks system for years. It doesn't hurt to have one of the best offensive duos in the...

Bro, Your Face Sprung A Leak

  You really have to give Dan Hamhuis of the Vancouver Canucks credit for this brawl last night with Jakub Voracek. It would’ve been acceptable for Dan to go down once the blood started blasting into his visor after a wicked shot to the left side of his face. But that’s not how Dan rolls. A bloody visor isn’t going to stop Dan from landing a couple of nice bombs on the side...

Bobblehead night more than a coincidence

Before we begin, an apology for things being a tad quiet from the site.  Life’s just getting in the way these days, which isn’t an excuse, it’s just honesty. – CH As we approach another of the wildly popular bobblehead nights (ahem, told you Sean), the Predators decided to have a little fun with this one. Perhaps taking a dig at the #Flyers' unsuccessful bid to sign a...

Nashville Predators 3 – Vancouver Canucks 1

Optimistic Thoughts: That first line is lethal. Forsberg notches two in this game and continues his stellar season. The power play looks to may have started to gain some traction by tallying again tonight. Victor Bartley didn’t look out of place after making his season debut due to Volchenkov’s four game suspension, and that will be much needed through the rest of the road trip...

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.

Does Dan Hamhuis Belong on Team Canada?

Just Maybe… To coincide with the NHL‘s game-du-jour, the American’s named their men’s Olympic hockey roster on Wednesday.

Most Certainly It may be more difficult to notice when stay-at-home defenceman have a breakout campaign, but based on what I’m seeing and the numbers are saying, Chris Tanev is in the midst of one. And at the rate John Tortorella is increasing his role and responsibility, he could very well be on the path to shedding his role as a stay-at-home guy. I mean, I can’t be the only...
