Strombummer Avoided?: Roberto Luongo Injury Update

  It was during Saturday night’s evisceration at the hands of the Los Angeles Kings that more than just a regular season game was lost by the Vancouver Canucks. Early in the 3rd period, Dustin Brown acrobatically spun into Roberto Luongo following his rebound of a Justin Williams shot, acquainting his right skate with the…

Canucks Army Postgame: Stop! Stop! They’re Already Dead!

There was no possible way this game was going to go Vancouver’s way. A sound beating at the hands of the L.A. Kings and a Dustin Brown roundhouse kick less than 24 hours prior had knocked out Roberto Luongo, and a mystery ailment had rendered Chris Higgins unavailable, the Canucks were forced to take desperate…

Canucks Army Postgame: The Kings Provide us with a Friendly Reminder

Luongo is in disbelief at his team’s performance, and I don’t blame him. [via @SchneidersTeeth] Let’s not sugarcoat it: the Vancouver Canucks got thoroughly outclassed by their opponent on Saturday night. The list of positives for the Canucks is a pretty short one following this game, with pretty much just one name cracking it. For…

Canucks Army GDT #43 – Canucks @ Kings

If tonight’s game between the Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks is even one half of the game that we saw the last time these two teams hooked up, I think we’ll all be satisfied. It was over a month ago now that all hell broke loose after Jordan Nolan took a run at Henrik…

USA Hockey Announces Their Olympic Dream Team, Literally

Yes, between David Poile having a guilt-ridden dream about leaving Jack Johnson off the team, and Brian Burke waking up in a sweat over a Seth Jones turnover, it was quite the selection process. I know the US men’s basketball team has had success at the Olympics after putting together a dream team, but I…

Evening Headshots: January 3rd

Why is Torts yelling? New glasses? No, can’t be it. Probably misses his old glasses. Hey everyone, remember me? While it has certainly been a lengthy period of time since my last post on Canucks Army, I figured we could just forget it like the world forgot about Judy Winslow on Family Matters after she…

Catching Up With Old Friends: Former Canucks Defensemen

Video courtesy CanucksTV Yesterday we took a glance around the league and looked at how 15 former Canucks forwards were performing. Though there were a few useful pieces scattered between St. Louis and Long Island, and a couple of other quality depth players in Toronto, San Jose and Dallas, overall the team hasn’t lost too…

Monte Carlo Method and Final Standing Predictions

Monte Carlo simulations are a really fun and interesting way to make predictions in just about anything, and this can be applied to many fields including hockey. Many different websites and experts use Monte Carlos to make predictions in hockey to determine final standings and points of teams. In this experiment, I create my own Monte…

Catching Up With Old Friends: Former Canucks Forwards

The one that got away! Photo Courtesy: Wikimedia Commons At the very outset of every calender year the ubiquitous New Years anthem "Auld Lang Syne" beckons us, rhetorically, to remember old friendships: "May old acquaintance be forgot and never come to mind?"   With the New Year now upon us and with Sami Salo having been fondly…

Canucks Army Postgame: Dick Panik in Vancouver

Image via @CrownRoyal22  Reading some of the postgame quotes you’d think that Wednesday night’s lackluster effort v. the Lightning was something we’d become accustomed to seeing as part of a worrying trend, rather than an aberration. But with a 10-1-2 month of December in the rearview mirror, I think it’s fair to say it’s far…

Canucks Army GDT #42 – Lightning @ Canucks

Happy New Year, everyone. Hope you all had a good night, stayed safe, have spent this morning hydrating properly, and are ready for some hockey tonight. There’s only one game left on the slate for the first day of 2014 – with all of the Winter Classic festivites finally coming to an end – and…
