Brayden FenglerGeneralLeave a Comment

When the regular season format was first announced for this year, I’m sure I wasn’t the only person who felt confident about the Vancouver Canucks’ chances.

No one knew what to expect out of the Canucks goaltending without Jacob Markstrom in the net this year. But it’s safe to say that what the team has gotten in the net so far, is still leaving much to be desired.

Brayden FenglerGeneral, PlayersLeave a Comment

The first time the Vancouver Canucks beat the Ottawa Senators this season, we were all able to witness the calming effect that one win can have in this market during a volatile time. That calming effect was definitely in action after Saturday’s win over the Calgary Flames, however, the fan base was all too soon pulled back into their tailspin, after Monday’s disappointing overtime loss.

Jake Virtanen, What Do the Canucks Do With Him

Brayden FenglerPlayersLeave a Comment

Is Jake Virtanen the key to all the Vancouver Canucks problems? Well if he is, it’s definitely not going to be in the way that GM Jim Benning probably imagined when drafting the winger 6th overall in the 2014 NHL entry draft. With the Vancouver Canucks in a complete downhill spiral at the moment, the Virtanen trade rumors have been boiling back up to the surface again. But will trading … Read More

When you sort the league standings by point percentage the Vancouver Canucks are in the company of teams like the Detroit Red Wings, Ottawa Senators, LA Kings and San Jose Sharks. Oof. It would not be a far cry to call the 2021 season to this point, a disaster, especially put in the context of the 2019/20 season as a backdrop.  This is the part of a new contender’s timeline … Read More

You always hear people in hockey say things like “he had a quiet night and that’s what you look for from a defenceman”, it’s a cliché, but it’s a cliché because it’s correct. Jordie Benn could be among one of the major fixes the Canucks need with this current roster, in order for it to live up to that timeless turn of phrase. I knew Benn had slotted into the … Read More

Trent LeithPlayersLeave a Comment

I think many of us have had that moment this season, where we’re watching a Canucks game and we ask ourselves out loud “What in the world is wrong with Pettersson?”. My moment came late Monday night after the Canucks won 7-1 against Ottawa, and the only stat Pettersson had was a -1. I was stunned, that is next to impossible as a top-line player on PP1.
