Canucks Army GDT #51 – Canucks @ Oilers

Sadly, no more.. [Image via Vancity Buzz] It has been a rough week or so for the Vancouver Canucks, who have been progressively crumbling into pieces before our very eyes. They’ve lost their coach, they’ve lost a handful of players (including their captain), and they’ve lost numerous games.  What they’ve gained, on the other hand,…

The culture of Torts

(Picture courtesy of me) As all of Canucks Nation knows by now (except for the three of you who don’t, but even you three have to admit you suspected something was up) John Tortorella has been suspended 15 days by the NHL for his part in the Brawl for All that took place Saturday between…

NHL goes in on John Tortorella, Suspends him for 6 games

I love the internet so very much. [GIF via @IAmByks]  "OK, do we start shishkebabing John Tortorella right now, or.." were the wise words HNiC *analyst*, kickstarting his temper tantrum directed at the coach following his actions during the 1st intermission of Saturday night’s Fight Club. Well, shishkebab away did Colin Campbell – note that…

I (Henrik Sedin) am (was) Ironman!

Just a quick note for a sunny Monday afternoon: This won’t come as a shock, but Henrik Sedin’s ironman streak is over. #canucks captain won’t play versus #oilers. — Dan Murphy (@sportsnetmurph) January 20, 2014 Not at all surprising. Henrik Sedin was struggling all night versus Calgary, before finally being shown some mercy by being…

PLAYER SELECTION

During and after the fireworks in Vancouver on Saturday night, many people wanted to get on Canucks head coach John Tortorella for being so mad. Claiming that if he didn’t want or expect that to happen, he should have put out a more skilled line. I disagree.

Canucks Army Postgame: Moral Victories All Over The Ice!

Let’s just be completely honest and upfront with ourselves: the only redeeming quality to Vancouver’s Saturday night showdown against Calgary was the two points the Canucks pocketed in the standings. I have a far more tolerant view of fighting than some of the other great writers here, and I thought the line brawl to start…

Canucks Army GDT #50 – Flames @ Canucks

Image via Earl Sleek The Vancouver Canucks have fallen on hard times lately. There aren’t a lot of things going right for them these days, with all of the injuries and losing. As weird as it is to say this given the fact that they had endured a 9-1 drubbing the night before, I think…

Are the Sedin twins old and useless now? (Well, no, but…)

The Canucks wrapped up a road trip in which they scored just once in three games last night. I actively work to not listen to the alarmists anymore, but it’s tough to ignore scoring woes of this magnitude. The Canucks did only get out-Corsi’d in close situations 59-55 in a three-game road trip that included…

Will Things Get Better Moving Forward?

  Admittedly, the outlook and dialogue on this blog has been pretty bleak lately. I guess that’s what happens when the team your blog is devoted to goes through an injury-induced malaise; which includes 1 win in 9 games since December 30th, a -14 goal differential, one of the most embarrassing group performances imaginable, and…
