Canucks' 19th road win. #1 in the league.

Surprise! The Canucks win 2 in a row. It looks to me that the B's D has trouble reading the play on occasion, made some bad passes, and paid dearly for them. Otherwise, I thought the B's didn't play more »

For the past 8 games, the Canucks have alternated Ws & Ls. Their last game was a W vs the Blackhawks. They'll lose tonight.

The flip side of "health" is "depth". If you have the latter, you can endure not having the former. And while a Vezina-calibre goalie is an advantage, I would argue that while the Vezina is awarded more »

The proof will be the on-ice product. While I like the moves that Benning has made, I doubt that this team can make the playoffs until 2016-17, at the earliest. The West is simply too stacked with C more »

What do you think of the job your boy Benning's been doing so far?

Now that the Bruins are out, is Jim Benning's announcement as the new Canucks' GM imminent?

Burkie made what was probably the finest pre-draft moves ever, in order to get the #2 and #3 picks, while convincing Atlanta that Patrik Stefan was a legit #1. Can you imagine any team getting two pi more »

How about combining the "dive review" and the "dive misconduct"? The league reviews dives, and if a player is guilty, then he serves the misconduct at the beginning of his next game (i.e. he has to s more »

You'd think it would be pretty easy to defend for a goalie. As soon as he starts spinning, come out, cut off the angle -- with the puck in such a delicately balanced location close to the shooter's b more »
