The Vancouver Canucks were originally scheduled to return from their three-week hiatus last night to face the Oilers, but following J.T. Miller’s candid comments, the league decided to postpone their first two games to give the team more recovery time.
The Vancouver Canucks have a lot of work to do. With an underwhelming season, some big contracts to attend to and players on the books that are being paid for too much for their respective production, this offseason will be a busy one for general manager Jim Benning.
Before the Vancouver Canucks get back to game-action — for better or for worse, in sickness or in health — we’re taking one last opportunity to look ahead at one of many notable events to come in the offseason: the 2021 Seattle Kraken Expansion Draft.
The trade deadline came and went but Ryan Getzlaf stayed with the Anaheim Ducks. What does the future hold for the Ducks 35 year-old captain? That seems a little unclear at the moment based on his recent comments.
What had been expected since Wednesday and then rumored on Thursday afternoon is now official. The NHL has confirmed that the Vancouver Canucks will not return to play from their lengthy COVID-19 pause Friday night versus the Edmonton Oilers as originally hoped.
A small victory amongst the atrocities set forth by the league. It looks like J.T. Miller’s comments have brought forth some action by the NHL. According to multiple reports from Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman and TSN’s Jason Gregor, the Vancouver Canucks game against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night has been postponed.
Members of the Canucks only returned to official team practices this week, and the club is currently set to play 19 contests in 31 days to complete its full 56-game schedule even as some players are still recovering.
Welcome back to WDYTT, the only hockey column on the internet with a full no-movement clause, unless you count occasionally moving to Wednesdays. We’ve reached another point of interest in what has been an absolute pirate map of a 2021 season.
Coming in at number three on my list is winger sort of turned centre, Kole Lind. Lind is the perfect example of long-term development and is now just one final step away from the NHL as he currently sits on the Canucks’ Taxi Squad.
3 Weeks Off. 1 Practice. Get Back to Work!!! The NHL is a cruel league operated by slimy money-grubbing billionaires and their weaselly minions that pits good sense and fair play against TV Violence on Ice in their Plunderdomes.
It’s time for another edition of the Vancouver Canucks prospects report. Highlights include Vasily Podkolzin’s heroic two-game performance in the KHL Playoffs, Joni Jurmo’s continued offensive production in the Mestis, and Jackson Kunz’s return to the scoresheet.
