The first three players are Mason Raymond (second-round pick in 2005, 374 games played, and now a member of the Calgary Flames...

Vancouver Canucks: Finding the Mark

The Vancouver Canucks are currently clinging to the third spot in the Pacific Division, and it may be the last playoff spot the way the Western Conference has shaped up. Would it be crazy for Vancouver to rely on a goalie that has only played more than 16 games in a season once in his career? Perhaps not.

Canucks’ OT strategy is to play for the shootout

The introduction of 3-on-3 hockey has brought new excitement to NHL overtimes.
