The Canucks are 4-0 and at the top of the NHL. We all saw this coming, right? Wait, 4-0 not 0-4? Well then. It's very early in the season, but regardless, seeing the Canucks at the top of the standings at any point of the season is a surprise. It hasn't been pretty, and it's hard to say if it's sustainable to expect the Canucks to at least keep on a winning path, but wins are wins and they go into California with a clean record. With that in mind, I asked our writers if this 4-0 start has changed anything on their perception of the Canucks. Here's what they said!

Comments Section Makeover!

At Canucks Army, we like to think that we've the savviest readership in the hockey blogosphere. It's why we've kept our comments section open to anyone who visits the site and generally taken a hands-off approach to monitoring the forum.

As with anything, though, all it takes are a few bad apples and the lot is ruined. And if the feedback I've received to this point regarding our comments section is any indication, it appears that is the case. With that, I'd like to address some of the changes we'll be making to how the comments section is monitored and moderated going forward.

With a little due diligence on everyone's end, we hope to turn the comments section around and developing a healthy environment to discuss everything happening in the Canucks world.
