The Offseason So Far

Canucks GM Mike Gillis has been reasonably quiet this off-season, making safe, reasonable moves. Is it about due for a BOLD decision?

Cheers and Jeers – June 29th

It’s Friday. So we close out the "Week That Was" with our latest volume of… "Cheers and Jeers!" This week, we talk a lot about Twitter. Nail Yakupov is good at it, fans should react better to stuff tweeted out on it, and the Canucks need to be faster on mammoth events like Bure finally…

The Good and the Bad of this past week. It’s Friday. So we close out the "Week That Was" with our latest volume of… "Cheers and Jeers!" This week, I keep it close to home with some cheers and jeers to my boys from Maple Ridge and CanucksArmy.
