Canucks Army Postgame: At Least Stuff Happens In A 9-1 Game

  I am told that there was a hockey game this Thursday night. I am also told that it was aired on Rogers Sportsnet Pacific at 6:00 PM Vancouver time. Well I am not sure about you guys, but when I sat in front of my television set at 6:00 PM Vancouver time, rapt with…

Canucks Army GDT #49 – Canucks @ Coyotes

I’m going to refrain for starting this post off with the "things can only get better, right?" lede, because as we learned last night, that’s not necessarily a given. I plugged yesterday’s game against Anaheim like that, thinking that the Ducks couldn’t possibly hand the Canucks a more one-sided butt whooping than the one they…

Canucks Weekly Prospect Report – January 16th, 2014

Courtesy of the Utica Comets Welcome to this week’s Canucks Weekly Prospect Report.  In the past 7 days since we last looked at the landscape, the Comets earned their first point in nearly three weeks thanks to the #JensenTrain picking up some serious steam. Down in the Major Junior circuit there are a number of…

Canucks Army Postgame: Moral Victory Shmoral Victory

GIF via the Score In case you missed Wednesday night’s game in Anaheim and are wondering how it went for the Canucks, I think you can use John Tortorella’s reaction above as a pretty reliable guide. It sums things up fairly adequately. Just extrapolate it into nearly 3 hours worth of self-deprecating viewing, and you’ve got…

Not Niklas Jensen called up from Utica

In case you’re late sending in your Fantasy lineups tonight… Canucks have recalled forward Kellan Lain from the AHL Utica Comets. — Vancouver Canucks (@VanCanucks) January 15, 2014 There isn’t a lot here, but we presumed yesterday that when John Tortorella suggested that the Canucks would call up another man, it was going to be…

Canucks Army GDT #48 – Canucks @ Ducks

Get your game face on, just like Corey Perry! Wednesday night’s game between the Vancouver and Anaheim will be hard-pressed to match the intensity, excitement, and intrigue that we saw last time the Canucks hit the ice, but that’s okay. Despite that there’s at least a handful of noteworthy things for us to look at…

Top Prospect Stock Watch

Photo via PHT On Monday our pal Corey Pronman published his "midseason top-50 NHL prospects" list (Insider only) over at ESPN, and three Canucks prospects made the list (or two did, and a third player was an honourable mention). While CanucksArmy favorites Ludwig Blomstrang and Brendan Gaunce were inexcusably snubbed (and now Pronman has to…

Canucks Make Moves: Next Stop on the Jensen Train, Phoenix?

Torts confirms Booth will play vs Anaheim, but says another player from Utica will join team in Phoenix. Suspect it will be Jensen. #canucks — Brad Ziemer (@BradZiemer) January 14, 2014 Following last night’s "moral victory" the Vancouver Canucks have been using their day off in Anaheim to make some moves. Don’t worry, our boyfriend Tom…

Heat Maps: On Shot Location and the Canucks’ Sputtering Power-Play

  Henrik Sedin in his office on the right side half wall. Image via wikimedia commons For fans of the team, Vancouver’s power-play has been extraordinarily frustrating to watch this season (and for a couple years now, truth be told). While the Canucks are generating shots-a-plenty with the man-advantage – in fact they’re generating 5-on-4…

CA Postgame: Canucks win fight(s), lose game

There was a lot of talk leading up to Monday night’s game in LA as to what the Vancouver Canucks would do in response to Dustin Brown’s most recent shenanigans. I did my part in perpetuating the talk by devoting a large chunk of the game preview to it (mostly because I figured there was…

Canucks Army GDT #47 – Canucks @ Kings

On the one hand, it’s pretty unfortunate for the Vancouver Canucks that they have to go to California to take on the Kings and Ducks twice each within the span of 10 days or so. It’s no secret that the Canucks have had their share of difficulties against the top teams in their own division,…
