The red-hot Panthers suffered a rare loss, when Daniel Sedin scored an overtime goal to win the game. That’s where...

Derek Dorsett boards Nate Prosser; then Fights Him

There are some fans that don't like fighting in any level of hockey, I am more fussed about dirty, dangerous, unnecessary boarding and checks from behind. I am more concerned about hits like the one Dorsett put on Nate Prosser.First Derek Dorsett was in the game to cause havoc at the end of a lopsided game, no one is going to confuse him with Sidney Crosby or even Brad Marchand....

Rangers dominate first period as I went to bed

I watched the first period last night. The Rangers dominated the Canucks for basically all but the first shift of the game. There were one or two blips –Derek Dorsett burning Dylan McIlrath comes to mind– but for the most part, the Rangers controlled the play. They killed the Ryan McDonagh penalty at the end […]

Zac Rinaldo Fights Derek Dorsett Two Minutes Into Bruins-Canucks Game (Video)

Games between the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks always tend to be rowdy affairs. Zac Rinaldo continued that tradition in the teams’ latest meeting.

Vancouver Canucks: The Penalty Box

There may be “Dirty Water”, but it is not in Boston. There may be bullies, but they are not on Broad Street, or in Philadelphia. You will have to drive out west and into Canada to find a Vancouver Canucks team that added Brandon Prust in the offseason to a team that already included Derek Dorsett. They have not disappointed. Through 8 games, Prust and Dorsett have each landed...

A Flames fan sends Jim Benning ‘thank you’ flowers for offseason moves

I’ve outlined extensively why I think the Vancouver Canucks have taken a step back with the moves they’ve made under Jim Benning. They’ve made some pretty puzzling moves recently – whether it’s signing Derek Dorsett and Lucas Sbisa to long-term extensions, giving up on Eddie Lack for almost nothing or adding salary and losing assets to trade for Brandon Sutter, only to...

The Vancouver Canucks have made some puzzling decisions this summer

The Vancouver Canucks have made some puzzling decisions of late. General manager Jim Benning isn’t exactly putting on a clinic on how to GM. It’s hard to forget he handed out sizable extensions to bit-players. Derek Dorsett is a solid fourth liner, but is he really worth $10.6 million over four seasons? Benning thought so. The same day he signed Dorsett, he also signed defenseman...

Rangers final grades: bottom-six forwards

Last season, the Rangers deployed Benoit Pouliot, Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello on their third line and Derek Dorsett, Dominic Moore and Brian Boyle on the fourth for much of the season.
