With the trade deadline rapidly approaching, we don’t know if the Canucks will add or subtract from the prospect pool but that’s what makes it so fun. Given the comments of GM Jim Benning over the past couple of weeks,…

Canucks Stuggling with Sit and Wait Approach

I’m a pretty patient guy. I have two kids under 10-years old and waiting for them to finish a meal, or get ready in the morning, or even buckle their seatbelts is a test of supreme internal discipline. The same can be said for a Canucks Stanley Cup or a little more relevant these days,…

WWYDW: Fixing the Defense

We’ll keep things short and simple this week. What should the defense pairings look like next year? Feel free to include any signings or trades you’d like to see the Canucks make. Last week I asked: Are you team playoffs or team tank? apr: Team playoffs as long as no futures are traded for unnecessary upgrades. Bring…

What The Heck Happened To Tim Schaller?

Count this author in as one of the few in the Vancouver fanbase who were actually excited about the signing of Tim Schaller in the summer of 2018. While that opinion has aged about as gracefully as Keith Tkachuk, there was once plenty of reason for optimism. When he signed with the Canucks, Schaller was…

Who Will Be Quinn Hughes’ Defense Partner In 2019/20?

What We Talk About When We Talk About Tanking

In hockey, as in life, it’s exceedingly rare to receive a gift from a stranger. But, in what may be the only case of true generosity from a billionaire in recent memory, that’s exactly what Francesco Aquilini gave me during Wednesday night’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes: People who talk about "tanking" for draft reasons…

CanucksArmy Roundtable: Scoreboard Watching

Here we are in late January, and the Vancouver Canucks are entering the NHL All-Star break tied for eighth place in the West (tiebreakers be damned), and who can honestly say that they saw this coming? Certainly not those negative nellies at CanucksArmy, that’s for sure! And sure, the Canucks are getting all sorts of…

What To Watch While The Canucks Are On Hiatus

If you’re a regular reader of CanucksArmy, chances are good that you watch enough hockey to have developed a serious habit. With the Vancouver Canucks on hiatus for a preposterous nine consecutive days between January 24 and February 1—due to a combination of the All-Star Weekend and the team’s scheduled “bye week”—there’s a high possibility…
