Canucks Army Year in Review: Jayson Megna

Rightly or wrongly, Jayson Megna came to symbolize everything wrong with the Willie Desjardins-coached Canucks.

After all, he signed a one-year,…

Winnipeg native Cody Glass can do it all. He’s a smart, playmaking centre, he can score goals, he’s an excellent skater, and he plays a physical puck possession game.

The Canucks Should Select a Goalie at the 2017 NHL Entry Draft

In Vancouver, the Canucks’ crease is a topic that gets air time seemingly constantly. Allow me to add another submission. The Canucks should be targeting a goaltender at some point in the upcoming  NHL Entry Draft.

Because It’s The Cap: Anaheim Ducks Offseason Preview
