Watch Fellow Former Blackhawk Ryan Stanton Annihilate Brandon Bollig

Having played together in the Blackhawks organization for the past 4 seasons, it is safe to assume Ryan Stanton and Brandon Bollig have crossed paths quite a few times. It is also safe to assume the two had never crossed paths as violently as they did during Thursday night’s exhibition game between the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks I personally have been waiting years so...

Back-end depth leaves Canucks on thin ice

The Vancouver Canucks’ back end hasn’t really played this well as a unit since the 2010-11 run to the Cup, so certainly nobody is complaining about goals-against at the moment. As was the case when the Sedins were playing all those minutes and producing points earlier in the year, there always seemed there had to be a price to pay some time down the road. John Tortorella is...

Canucks pour in the goals in 6-2 thumping of Blue Jackets

When it rains, it pours in Vancouver. At least it does when Sergei Bobrovsky is in net. Eating sand for two weeks, the Canucks went to the well on the Columbus Blue Jackets’ goalie. What an oasis.

The Canucks after 20 games: Part 1 “The good!”

20 games? Already? It’s crazy isn’t it? But it feels like it was yesterday when we were watching Alex Biega and Patrick Mullen during the preseason and thinking: “Oh, sweet Jesus. The Canucks defense has to stay healthy this season. These guys are awful”. But here we are, well into November now and the defense (save for an Alex Edler suspension) has remained in tact. The...

Canucks blame game: Yotes win 3-2 in the post-game skills contest

Hmph…shootouts The Vancouver Canucks played a perfectly reasonable road game against the Coyotes on Nov. 5 – it was slow, boring and mostly safe. It’s hard to assess blame in a 3-2 shootout loss on the road but the game came down to a few minor errors. Despite the loss, there were quite a few positive to come from the trip the desert. Ryan Kesler scored one of the nicest...

Ryan Stanton finds a new hockey home with Canucks

Some of the best words a young pro trying to establish himself as a NHL regular can hear are “you can move out of the team hotel.” Defenceman Ryan Stanton got that message on the Vancouver Canucks’ recent seven-game road trip and with the help of his mom found some new more permanent digs in the Yaletown area.
