Canucks Player Power Rankings – 2016/17 .Gif Edition

The Canucks played two relatively uneventful games this week and Bo Horvat is the only one who did anything of note, so today I’m going to rank the team a little differently. Last season, I ranked the Canucks based on the best .gif I could find of each of them. Surely with all of the new Canucks…


Canucks Army Midterm Prospect Ranking #1: Brock Boeser

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for: we’re finally unveiling our pick for the Vancouver Canucks’ top prospect! If you’ve been following along, it should be pretty obvious at this point who it’s going to be – I mean, everyone knows who the high end guys are here, so it’s just process of elimination,…


Scouting the Dub – Prince George vs Vancouver

Embed from Getty Images With the NHL past the mid season mark and many teams having just held their amateur scouting meetings, the 2017 NHL Entry Draft is starting to become a little more of a focus.

Canucks Army Roundtable: Hey Now You’re an All-Star

All-Star weekend is usually jam-packed with stuff. There’s so much to do and so much to see, so what’s wrong with taking the back streets? You’ll never know if you don’t go, you’ll never shine if you don’t glow. The All-Star weekend could use a little freshening up though, and the NHL has tried multiple…


Babych Please – January 27th, 2017

The All Star break is upon us, meaning we get a full week without Canucks hockey! This feels especially exciting after last night’s snoozer in Glendale. As Bo Horvat prepares to rub elbows with Carly Rae Jepsen and Nick Jonas, his teammates are driving cars and go-karts, helping their friends out, and learning to express emotion. 


The Roundup

Shattenkirk reportedly on board with the ‘Shanaplan in Toronto, don’t buy Ken Holland’s hope in Detroit, a closer look at the Jets GM, the Flames need a shakeup, Oilers have to do better against the best teams, the Battle of Alberta sweep, killing the shootout, Henrik Sedin, NHL power rankings and more in this week’s Nation Roundup…



With one game remaining before the All-Star break, the Canucks waltzed into Phoenix tonight to play the hapless Coyotes, fresh off a victory against the last-place Avalanche the night before. What followed was one of the most collectively uninspired games in recent memory. Vancouver failed to register a shot on goal in the first period and failed to…


Canucks Army Midterm Prospect Rankings #2: Olli Juolevi

Olli Juolevi checks in as the second best Vancouver Canucks’ prospect. A fitting distinction for the Finnish defenceman, selected with the Canucks fifth overall selection in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. Given Juolevi’s lofty pedigree, there’s no doubting his status as the best defensive prospect in the Canucks organization. The Canucks have long desired a…


Blackfish: Canucks Army Weekly Prospect Report – January 26th, 2017

Another week has passed and the Canucks currently occupy a wild card spot! For the Canucks prospects, it’s been a busy week.
