Monday Mailbag: Should the Canucks Tank Next Season?

If management decides Loui needs to move on and they aren't able to trade him in the offseason, do you think he gets the Gagner treatment? — Ryan Little (@rLittle67) March 17, 2019 Part of me feels like the current regime just can’t get away with that again without it having a massive effect on…

WWYDW: The Mighty Quinn

Quinn Hughes is set to make his debut with the Canucks as soon as his injury heals. The Canucks could obviously use the help on the back end and the power play, but it’s important they keep in mind what’s best for his development, too. Who would you like to see as Hughes’ defense partner? Should…

Mailbag Part 2: Offseason Plans, Trade Speculation, and Tanking

With Spooner and Pearson on hand, will #Canucks make a decision similar to Gagner regarding veterans when everybody is healthy?

Expect everything to be back to normal next week. Is it…

In the absence of Sven Baertschi and with a dearth of offensive talent available to the Canucks on the left wing, Pearson looks primed for a golden opportunity with the Canucks. Where…

First Look: Canucks Swap Prospects

In their second and less-publicized move on deadline day, the Canucks traded Jonathan Dahlen to the San Jose Shakrs in exchange for forward Linus Karlsson. At first glance, the move looks like a bit of a head-scratcher, at least in terms of what the numbers say about the two players. Viewed through the lens of…

Monday Mailbag: Defensemen, General Managers, and Cat S**t

If Jonathan Dahlen is in play and Eeli Tolvanen has been up and down; could you see Benning offering Dahlen and current assets to pry Tolvanen out of NSH? — Stuart W. Dixon, MBA (@StuartDixonMBA) February 24, 2019 For starters, Tolvanen is definitely a worthy target for the Canucks, especially if they really are dead-set…
