Time for the NHL to Embarass the Divers

#57060815 / gettyimages.coms/t Pro hockey talk... I really like the idea of exposing and publically humiliating the divers in the NHL. I am all in on that idea. In fact, let's have a wall of shame and expose the frauds weekly that cheapen the game of hockey. I have a great idea. Let's have an end of the season dishonor award for the frauds that get caught diving and embellishing...

Desjardins confident that Canucks can play fast

Willie Desjardins doesn’t think the Canucks are too old and slow to play the kind of up-tempo style that made them so successful in the past. In fact, Vancouver’s new head coach thinks the experience of his team’s aging core — comprised of over-30 players like the Sedin twins, Alex Burrows, Chris Higgins, Kevin Bieksa, and Dan Hamhuis — could help fulfill the franchise’s...

‘I still believe in our group,’ says Bieksa as aging Canucks core and new-look supporting cast aim for rebound

Kevin Bieksa, who wasn’t born when the TV show Dallas was at the height of its popularity, is asked if he’s familiar with the plot twist involved in the shooting of J.R. Ewing. No, he said. It was carefully explained to him that J.R.’s death, which ended one season, was revealed to be a dream of one of the characters the next season, and this caused quite a stir. There was...

Kevin Bieksa Believes In The Canucks

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, “I still believe in our group. I trust the twins are going to come here and be ready. (Defenceman Dan Hamhuis) will be hungrier than ever.

Daniel, Henrik Sedin are no longer elite players

For a short while, the Vancouver Canucks featured two of the top offensive threats in the entire NHL, and they just happened to be identical twin brothers. The Sedin twins, Daniel and Henrik, had always been good offensive players. Henrik was always the playmaker, making deft passes not only to his brother (whom Henrik could find on the ice blindfolded) while Daniel was more of the...

Canucks Need To Get Younger

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, There are simply too many assets in Vancouver for the Canucks to drop to the bottom of the league the way an Edmonton or Buffalo has. But if they don’t use those assets to get younger — the way Benning turned Kesler into Bonino (26), Luca Sbisa (24), Dorsett (27) and centre Jared McCann at the draft — they’ll hit the same cliff Edmonton...

Can The Vancouver Canucks Recover?

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, Yes, the Canucks should have seen this coming in September. But they were blinded by the other things they thought they saw in Tortorella. The iron hand. The unrelenting intensity. There was a belief the Canucks had grown soft and comfortable under Alain Vigneault and, under Torts’ watch, the easy ride would be over. And it was. ...
