Big Dawg has more to prove
As Washington Huskies freshman guard Tony Wroten continues his onslaught on the Pac-12 this season, one has to wonder “will he stay or will he go” after one year in Dawgs purple.
I know the answer!
Here are my five reasons why I think he will return for his sophomore season and beyond.
1: Hometown pride
With Tony Wroten being a native to Washington...
How Will They Fare?
As our Ducks blogger Crazy Quacker pointed out about a week ago after it was announced that Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly was going to make the leap to the NFL and take over as head coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he decided he would stay where his heart his, in Oregon.
Not all his troops had the same idea however.
Here’s a recap of the main players...
Yet Another Shootout
If you’ve been watching the Vancouver Canucks in 2012, you would agree that the team is slumping. The Sedins are off, the the second periods have been appalling, and in a throwback to the Dave Nonis era, the goaltenders have been keeping the Canucks in games.
So how do you explain that the Canucks are the league’s hottest team right now, 7-1-2 in their last...

NHL Futures – Who is going to win the Staley Cup?
Sticking with our North West gambling themed articles (NFL, NCAAB, NBA, MLB) this week we felt it was time to give the NHL some love in that direction.

Gettin it off my chest!
This week, things that bother me about the Canucks.
You know what I hate?
I hate that the Canucks are winning.
I hate that they’re winning ugly. Why can’t they just look beautiful again? I prefer beautiful losses to ugly wins.
Honestly, I just want to watch the Henrik Sedin & Daniel Sedin play a passing drill for 60 minutes. They don’t even need...

Puttin On The Bitz
The Vancouver Canucks brought a better effort against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday and battled back after blowing a two-goal lead to take two points in a 4-3 shootout victory.
Both Pekka Rinne and Roberto Luongo were solid in another busy night for the goaltenders that included a six-round shootout to decide a winner.

Heartbreak at Home
Sorry I’m writing this 24 hours after the game ended. It’s been a busy time at the ole NWSB. If anyone knows some Oregon NBA sports fans, specifically a Portland Trail Blazers die-hard who can write these pretty much when the game ends let me know. We’d like to have a chat with him/her.
The Blazers have lost eleven games this year, but none of them have...

James Rodgers, wide receiver
I thought it was a good block, McMillan said. That game should have been over.
I dont want to sound rude, but it doesnt really matter now, he said. They made shots in overtime, and we didnt, and they got some calls their way, and they win the game.
Now having said that we all know full well Nate McMillan knows the NBA frowns...

This week we learned the Portland Timbers and their new man Jose Adolfo Valencia won't see much of each other for a while.
The Colombian forward will have knee surgery to repair damaged cartilage in his left knee. It's not like they're missing much. He had not trained with the Timbers since Jan. 24.
GM Gavin Wilkinson said the surgery was scheduled for this week...
Twins need a triplet!
The recent All-Star Game in Ottawa didn’t split up the Vancouver Canucks Sedins this time, offering a very glimpse into seeing how the twins are capable of operating with a comparable franchise player on their wing.
Between Scott Hartnell and Daniel Alfredsson, the Sedins scored a couple of highlight reel goals on the best dream team they’ve been on since...

John Garrett put down the knife and fork for a few minutes to write a quick post at Canucks.com recently regarding the team's shootout choices. Taking time aside from his excellent in-game culinary critiques, Garrett chimed in proposing the team establish teams of shooters for the skills competition.

Great game tonight in Portland. The Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Portland Trailblazers.
Here's a "Curious" call to say the least.
Crazy call. Crazy game. Crazy ending.
Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge was called for goaltending while defending a runner by Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant. NBA official Scott Foster made the call.
The curious case of Mason Raymond
Even Google knows when the NHL trade deadline is. ”I googled it”. – “The NHL Trade Deadline is on Monday, February 27, 2012.”
A couple weeks ago, Jason Botchford explored the possibility that Mason Raymond was Michael Grabner 2.0. He saw Raymond as a luxury player for the top six that at the same time wasn’t built for a bottom six...
Mike paid $150k for her ring!
Looking for NHL gossip? There you go! The Vancouver Canucks head to Nashville to play their second game of a four game road trip on Tuesday night. Vancouver has fared well recently in Nashville winning the last four meetings there but this Predators team is on some sort of role in winning 14 of their last 17 games.
