At least, as fun as a 2-0 game between two offensively anemic teams can be. The Canucks generated a lot of chances, many of…

Why Are The Canucks Too Easy To Play Against?

It’s not a stretch to suggest the Vancouver Canucks are an easy team to play against most nights. This should be obvious to anyone with even the most basic knowledge about hockey.

Babych Please – March 31st, 2017

The Canucks are not always entertaining on the ice, but they’re making up for it with their off-ice content this week.

You Know What I Hate?! – March 30th

It’s another installment of my regular feature of venting and raging on stupid crap happening with the Canucks, their fans and other happenings around the NHL. Two things about this feature… 1) It will appear (hopefully) every week, and 2) It is blatantly ripped off from a stand-up bit from comedian Craig Anton. On either point,…
