It’s January 10th and the Canucks franchise may have hit its emotional peak for the year already. Jake Virtanen became the first Canuck to bring home a gold medal from the World Juniors since Jordan Schroeder in 2010. Multiple former-Canucks of varying importance made their return to Rogers Arena. Eddie Lack revealed some super weird eating…
Though the new year started with a loss, Canucks fans should be very optimistic about 2015. All three of their participating prospects made it past the group stage of the World Juniors, Tom Sestito is on waivers, and Roberto Luongo is coming back! What more could you ask for?
Happy holidays and happy day two of the World Juniors! In honour of the tournament, I’ve tried to round up some fun WJC-themed content for today. ‘Tis the season after all: the plan today? i’m going to get drunk and then yell at teenagers playing hockey — stefan (@boring_as_heck) December 26, 2014
Sometimes when a team is slumping, there is nothing to do but wait it out and draw up various potential solutions. This is absolutely not one of those times. The Canucks, despite their faults, timed this losing streak perfectly. It has been a slumpy, bumpy (and thankfully not mumpy) December for the Canucks, but as the…
American Thanksgiving, to me, usually means that Christmas is coming soon and I should probably begin to get ready for the holidays. If you, like me, feel sudden pressure to begin your holiday shopping, I’ve got your back. Read on past the jump for more info.
Welcome to this week’s edition of Babych, Please! Today, we’ll pay homage to the greatness of Daniel Sedin, investigate whether Alex Edler and Brian Elliott are secretly the same person, and take a look at all the actual people the Canucks signed this past week. Read past the jump!
Welcome to this week’s edition of Babych, Please! Today we’ll have a look at how the Canucks spent their days at the Sports Celebrities Festival and a recent season ticket holders event, and the eternal goofiness of Kevin Bieksa. Read past the jump!
Welcome to this week’s edition of Babych, Please!, where we’ll take a look at Nick Bonino’s Twitter beef, the always amazing Zack Kassian, a cat that looks like Radim Vrbata, and more. Read past the jump!
Three wins aside, the highlight of the week was probably watching the Canucks walk blindfolded through a maze of pie-plate landmines.
I’m not saying that it was a bad week for the Canucks, but the highlight may have been Zack Kassian’s moment of brilliance saving the Canucks from paying for their bad change. The “it’s not fun to be a Canuck” narrative has certainly been a strong one this week, but when it is not?
I’ve come to the sudden realization that writing fun, weekly wrap-ups of Canucks hockey is probably easier when the schedule does not consist solely of 2 games against the Edmonton Oilers. But if Dan Hamhuis can return after bleeding as much blood as he did on Friday night, I can at least try.
Welcome to the first of what will hopefully be at least a handful of my round-ups of the Canucks off-ice adventures.
