Looking Back: Three Canucks Who Needed A Stellar Season to Silence Critics

Boy, there were some wildly different results for these three Canucks. Back in September, I singled out three Canucks who needed to have a good season in order to silence the critics. All three of these players signed new contracts last season, and the pressure was on them to elevate their game. Two of these players are supposed  to be key cogs for the Canucks moving forward while...

Is Trading Ryan Miller Plausible for Vancouver?

Ryan Miller seems destined to finish out his three-year, $18 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks. With the cap unlikely to increase in the 2016-17 season, many teams will be unwilling to take on such an onerous salary. What gets lost in the conversation about trading Miller and his contract, is that he actually played pretty well last season. Miller, along with Jacob Markstrom...

Is Linden Vey the Odd Man Out?

As the current Canucks roster stands, there will be lots to sort out down the forward lineup for 2016-17. With depth forward spots in particular, it’s a blurry thought for Canucks fans to make out which players will be best suited for different roles. Okay, Derek Dorsett is a fourth-line winger – most can accept and certainly appreciate that. One other clear role might be that...

Figure skating giving many NHL players a cutting edge

Every professional athlete looks to gain an edge whenever possible. For hockey players, the game is evolving to be more about speed than ever before, so finding a way to add some speed on skates is essential. That has led some NHL players to lace up with some figure skating experts to fine tune their skating skills. This isn’t straight out of the 1992 film The Cutting Edge, in...

Video: Derek Dorsett ejected for squirting water at Patrick Maroon

As far as ejections go, this is a weird one. When was the last time you saw a player ejected for not even physically touching his opponent? That’s what happened when Derek Dorsett was ejected after he sprayed his water bottle at Patrick Maroon. The whole thing is kind of hilarious. The two were doing plenty of arguing from their own respective benches and then Dorsett got the...

Vancouver Canucks: Is it time to start over?

The Vancouver Canucks have not been a championship contender for the past couple of years, but it is still surprising to see how far the team has fallen. On Tuesday, they lost to San Jose, 4-1. It was their ninth straight loss, dating back to March 14, and only one of those losses went into extra time (they lost in a shootout at Nashville, which also happens to be the last team Vancouver...

Daniel Sedin calls out Canucks teammates for lack of effort

The Vancouver Canucks are out of playoff contention and that was on full display when they fell to the St. Louis Blues 3-0 and allowed a whopping 50 shots on Saturday. It wasn’t the team’s best effort, and a few Canucks called the team out – though not by name – for the lack of effort on the ice. Daniel Sedin: "From some guys right now, the effort is not there. I think...

Trade deadline outlook: Vancouver Canucks

Buyers or Sellers? Sellers. This Canucks team needs to be rebuilt and there are plenty of players on the Canucks roster whom Vancouver would be better off trading. Then again, the team just inexplicably got rid of one of its best prospects in Hunter Shinkaruk, so maybe the market is not as interested in some of the more obvious trade pieces out of Vancouver than fans might think...

Starting XI of players Jose Mourinho sold from Chelsea

When Jose Mourinho arrives at a club he likes the build the team in his own image. That means bringing in new players and shedding the players Mourinho puts in his doghouse, whether they deserve it or not. In his time at Chelsea, Jose Mourniho cut a lot of players loose.
