From inspired to invisible: Ranking the Canucks 2019 Halloween Costumes

Halloween: it’s that amazing time of year that comes right smack-dab in between back-to-school flu season and the chaos of Christmas, Hannukkah, Diwali, Rosh Hashanah, and the intersection of all four major sports in play simultaneously.

2019 Preseason Prospect Rankings: #3 Thatcher Demko

The Vancouver Canucks are fortunate enough to have two goaltenders among their list of top prospects; while the younger (and smaller) Mikey DiPietro clocks in at #7 on this pre-season’s list, the team has another goaltender in the pipeline that’s currently ranked even higher in Thatcher Demko.

2019 Preseason Prospect Rankings: #7 Michael DiPietro

BEST CANUCKS MEDIA GUY

I remember walking over to Botchford during the first intermission of the Arizona Coyotes-Vancouver Canucks game in Glendale this spring.

CanucksArmy Post-Game: The Best of Shotgun Jake

The Canucks had their undefeated streak ended in their last game, falling victim to a messy, stupid matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning and the entirely-inhuman Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Year in Review: Anders Nilsson

The Vancouver Canucks took a gamble when they signed goaltender Anders Nilsson to a multi year deal this past summer, bringing him on board as a replacement for Ryan Miller alongside Jacob Markstrom. At best, he was expected to put up similar stats to his 2016-17 season with the Buffalo Sabres, where he was good…

Canucks Army Postgame: The tank bounces back

When people openly cheer for a tank, it can get a little uncomfortable – especially if they start to berate players for giving high levels of effort in a lost season. That being said, I think we’re all in agreement: losing another game, well… it’s not exactly a travesty at this point, no? FINAL SCORE:…
