Where do the Vancouver Canucks go from here?

Class of 2011 forever! Well, that homestand was a let down. As the memories of that long road trip and the dominance of the Sedin/Kesler line fade, the Vancouver Canucks are stuck in a rut of playing well, but not good enough to win. It’s a familiar feeling over the past few years. They’re in tough. We figured they might be over the summer, with realignment and regression playing...

Depth is a league-wide problem, not just for Canucks

You would be inclined to look at the lineup the Vancouver Canucks put out at Rogers Arena Monday night and point out the obvious, which is to say there is absolutely no depth on this team. And you'd most certainly be accurate. Sure they have some of their top nine forwards out of the lineup in Jannik Hansen, David Booth and perhaps even Jordan Schroeder, but even with all hands...

With the Vancouver Canucks seemingly short of quality forwards — given the injuries to Alex Burrows Jannik Hansen and the man who likely would have been the replacement for anyone injured in Niklas Jensen — you have to wonder whether they ever think about their decision to send Bo Horvat back to junior so quickly.
