CANUCKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Vancouver Canucks: Time for a youth movement

Let me begin by commending the Canucks on a marked improvement over the fiery, Tortorella-driven train-wreck that the 2013-14 campaign became; their response to one of their worst seasons in the last decade was far better than many hockey fans (myself included) could have imagined. That being said, Vancouver’s elimination at the hands of the Calgary Flames […] The post Vancouver...

RIP 2014-2015 Vancouver Canucks

To the 2014-15 Vancouver Canucks, We hardly knew ye. After the 2013-14 season, there was very little for Canucks fans. They’d had their worst finish since 2000, their two franchise goalies had both been traded, their coach was trying to get into other teams locker rooms more than his own, and there was very little hope for the future.

Vancouver Canucks: Are the Sedins playoff busts?

I remember how my dad used to say it: “there are guys that will get you to the playoffs, but not through it.” Henrik and Daniel Sedin have reputations for being great regular season players, but not performing well in the playoffs. It’s a reputation that follows Europeans, and also players who aren’t known for […] The post Vancouver Canucks: Are the Sedins playoff busts...

Sad Vancouver Canucks Kid

  Look at that precious face. He knows the Canucks are done in their series against the Flames. He knew there was no coming back from a 3-1 hole in the third period, which meant the Flames would take a 3-1 series lead. He’s old enough to be filled with so much disappointment that goes back to that brutal 7-game Stanley Cup championship series in 2011 against Boston. He remembers...

Who Is The Only Canucks First-Round Draft Pick To Be Inducted Into Hockey Hall Of Fame?
