Canucks Army Postgame: What are score effects?

This picture was not taken on February 3rd, 2014. Heading into Monday night, it felt like there was some reason for optimism building around these parts. For the preview, I spent some time talking about how the team was getting its coach back, its best player back, and had just managed to pull off a…

Canucks Army GDT #57 – Canucks @ Red Wings

Image via CDC "You get lost sometimes, we need to take a look at the details. We won’t win every game, but we need to at least play the right way. I didn’t help matters for this team and we’re in a tough spot right now. It’s up to me to do my job and…

Canucks acquire Raphael Diaz

He looks stoned. He’ll fit in perfectly. Is your team struggling? Do you feel down in the dumps? Do you see the success of a wonderful group of football players slightly south of your favourite NHL team’s city (wearing similar colours) and want so badly to replicate that joy? Well, a good idea may be…

Canucks Army Postgame: Crash And Burn

Great teams have Michael Frolik on the fourth line, Andrew Ladd on the third, and play Dustin Byfuglien as a complimentary forward. Mediocre teams have Andrew Ladd and Michael Frolik on their first line, and lean on Dustin Byfuglien as their promary offensive weapon. Bad teams lose to teams who employ Frolik, Ladd and Byfuglien…

Canucks Army GDT #56 – Jets @ Canucks

It’s been nearly 18 years since the Canucks last touched down in Winnipeg to play an NHL game, and the last time they did, they faced off against a Winnipeg team that included a young Teemu Selanne, Nikolai Khabibulin and Shane Doan. Suffice to say that a lot (read: everything) has changed since then, except…

The Sea-to-Sky Boner Report: Jan 31st, 2014

  The Vancouver Giants have hit a rough patch of late, dropping 5 of their last 10 games for their worst stretch since early October. Not coincidentally, injuries to Dalton Thrower and Jared Rathjen have left their mark as Vancouver has struggled to keep pucks out of their own net and control the puck at…

Evening Headshots: January 30th

Long live Sestito! [Image via The Province] First of all, I’d like to thank everyone involved in last night’s festivities at The Pint. Quite frankly the agonizing headache and malaise of today might suggest I had too much fun, but hey, you gotta live, right? Back to Canuckistan and the real world, there was no…

Canucks Army GDT #55 – Blackhawks @ Canucks

Today’s the day! The day where watching a Canucks game will be fun! Let’s try to be positive and forget the fact that the Vancouver Canucks were basically taken to the woodshed by the Edmonton Oilers the last time saw them take the ice. And the fact that Daniel Sedin probably couldn’t even score on…

The elephant in the room: Daniel Sedin’s scoring woes

Umm.. [Image via Puck Daddy] January has truly been the month from hell for the Vancouver Canucks. They’ve gone 4-7-2, but somehow it feels like it’s almost been worse than that. There have been some losses that I’d characterize as both embarrassing and largely forgettable. After the way last season had concluded – and the…
