WWYDW: Jordie Benn

“Bargain.” “What a steal!” “Better than Myers at a third of the price!” “Big Bad Jim Benning has dominated the Free Agent Frenzy once again.” All of these things, except for that last one, were said in July when the Vancouver Canucks signed UFA Jordie Benn to a two-year, $4 million contract. At the time,…

How Much Will It Cost The Canucks To Re-Sign Chris Tanev?

The 2020 NHL Trade Deadline is just a month away and, for once, the annual lists of “Top Players on the Block” do not contain Vancouver Canucks defenseman Chris Tanev – despite the fact he’s a pending unrestricted free agent in the midst of what could be considered a career season. Tanev’s resurgence on the…

WWYDW: Troy Stecher

A year ago, the Vancouver Canucks’ greatest weakness was probably their defense corps. Flash forward to 2020, and suddenly the blueline is looking a little crowded. #Canucks AGM John Weisbrod says he's "optimistic" on whether the #Canucks can have Myers, Tanev & Stecher on the roster beyond this year. @Sportsnet650 #ReachDeep — Randip Janda (@RandipJanda)…

WWDYW: Jay Beagle

It’s no secret that the weakest link on this current edition of the Vancouver Canucks is their fourth line.

According to the analyticians, where will Noox finish season? Must be a big enough…

WWYDW: Chris Tanev

At the outset of the 2019/20 season, it was seen as a foregone conclusion by many that this campaign would be Chris Tanev’s last with the Vancouver Canucks. That was more-or-less the consensus when we asked this same question earlier this year. Now that we’ve crossed the halfway mark of the season, however, the situation…

The Vancouver Canucks 2019/20 Halfway Report Card

We’re a bit late for a December Report Card, but given that the Vancouver Canucks have completed their 41st game of 2019/20 – and thus reached the halfway point of he season – it makes more sense to evaluate each member of the team’s performance thus far. As of this writing, the Canucks hold a…

WWYDW: Jacob Markstrom In 2020

Folks, the year 2020 is upon us, and with the dawning of a new decade comes perhaps the dawning of yet another crease controversy in Vancouver – and, at the very least, a series of difficult netminding decisions. As a pending unrestricted free agent, Jacob Markstrom can be offered a new contract at any point…
