Canucks Top 5 Surprises This Season

Bo Horvat started this season as the 3rd line centre behind Henrik Sedin and Brandon Sutter. Despite ranking 5th in TOI/GP for forwards this season, and with very little time on the power play, Horvat is leading the team this season in goals and points. He has been a professional through everything this season – good or […]

What To Expect When You're Expecting Hockey

A coworker asked me today if this will be a good year for the Canucks. I didn’t have a simple answer for him. Predicting this year’s Canucks is akin to predicting the behavior of children. As a parent, sometimes you’re shocked at your kid’s actions. Sometimes, you swell with pride. And other times you are […]

See You In September

Much has been said about the Canucks bandwagon, and the legions of fans that have broken ankles jumping off and on. Let’s not forget the debacle that was last season. Remember that prior to this season, the Canucks main objective was to make it back to the playoffs. Many Canucks fans jumped off the bandwagon […]

The Canucks are off to one of their best starts in recent memory. After last season’s spectacular decline, this version of the team is a refreshing surprise.

Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot

Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind ? Should old acquaintance be forgot, and auld lang syne? The time between Christmas and the New Year is usually a time of reflection and remembrance. We think back on the events of this year, and of years past. In the summer of 2011, Derek […]

What to Expect When You're Expecting Goaltending

This post is a public service announcement to all Canucks fans, new, old and bandwagon: Roberto Luongo does not play well in October. To the faithful Luongo lovers and shameless Luongo apologists like myself, this should not come as a surprise. Luongo is perhaps the most polarizing figure in Vancouver sports. Fans all over the […]
