Obviously we at CanucksArmy are big supporters of sports betting, in part because we buy into the Nate Silver theory that putting your money where your prediction is will help improve the aggregate accuracy of forecasting. So this is a natural fit for us. That said, make sure to gamble for fun (or for bragging rights), not to make money. From all of us at CanucksArmy and PlayNow: a gentle reminder to use your game sense!

Read past the jump for special offers to CanucksArmy.com readers from PlayNow Sports, and a preview of this upcoming week of Canucks hockey.

On Thursday night the Canucks lost, once again, to the San Jose Sharks. The Canucks just can't seem to get over the hump against this Sharks club, which at least to my eyes appears to be bigger, faster, and better where it counts than Vancouver is.

We'll get into it more after the jump.

CanucksArmy Presents: The Canucks Fan Round Table - Oct 2013

(Editors Note: It's back! Last season we debuted the "Canucks fan round-table." The reader response was really good and so were the answers from participants. Because I really enjoyed putting these pieces together last season, I figured we'd continue on with the feature this year.

Today's featured guests include Dave (@BrowntoBure), Sam (@anothersamchan) and Melissa (@mel_leigh). Here are the questions we asked:

  1. Do the Vancouver Canucks have the wherewithal to compete with the likes of Los Angeles and San Jose in the Pacific this season? Why or why not? What has to change to give them a fighting chance?
  2. On a scale of one to ten, how much do you think the team will miss Cory Schneider this season? Why or why not?
  3. What are you first impressions of the John Tortorella era? Are you, or are you not entertained?
  4. Recommend three twitter accounts - players, bloggers, fans, media or whatever - that you find indispensable for  helping you follow the Canucks.

If you'd like to participate in next month's round table, just let me know in the comments section! We're going to have new guests every month, so everyone should get a shot eventually! Read on past the jump for the round table!)
