Have the Canucks Solved Their Centre Problem?

Brayden Fengler / August 8, 2022
Image
A different general manager, a different year of free agency, another centreman acquisition that comes with high hopes. With the acquisition of Curtiz Lazar have the Canucks now solved their issues with depth at centre, or is this new addition just shades of former Canucks’ GM Jim Benning’s Jason Dickinson pick-up only a year earlier? Additionally like all things Canucks this off-season, The decision around J.T. Miller will also play...

Demko’s Wedding and the Canucks in Attendance

Trent Leith / July 21, 2022
Image
Not since Adam Gaudette roundhouse kicked his new bride in the face while giving her a lapdance, has as much fun come out of a Vancouver Canucks player’s wedding. After their engagement last summer, Thatcher Demko and Lexie Shaw Demko tied the knot on July 16th, 2022. It’s the offseason, JT Miller is still a Canuck and the biggest splashes of free agency have come and gone. We’re in the...

Free Agency Day One, Initial Thoughts on the 5 New Canucks

Brayden Fengler / July 13, 2022
Image
The Canucks look to close out day one of NHL Free Agency with five new players now under the franchise’s banner. Vancouver grabbed players from all over the ice, two centres, a right winger, and even a goaltender. Some names were bigger than others, and some positions were clearly waited more than others as well. But regardless of how the pieces fell, it’s clear that July 13th was not a...

Canucks Draft Jonathan Lekkerimäki, Where Does He Fit?

Brayden Fengler / July 8, 2022
Image
The Canucks add yet another Swede to their depth chart, as they draft right-winger Jonathan Lekkerimäki 15th overall. On many lists, such as Sam Cosentino’s list for Sportsnet.ca, Lekkerimäki was slated to fall within the top 10 players selected in this year’s draft. So although no draft picks predetermined to go in the top five ended up falling down the board for the Canucks, Lekkerimäki was still a welcomed bonus...

7 Former Canucks That Could Return to Vancouver

Trent Leith / July 6, 2022
Image
NHL free agency is right around the corner. Don’t worry you haven’t missed it yet. In 2022 free agency didn’t open on July 1st like during a regular year, but instead on July 13th. The Canucks are not expected to make a big splash, but with names like Philip Forsberg and Johnny Gaudreau available, anything is possible.  The Canucks are most likely to sign lower lineup players rather than franchise-changing...

Anticipating Andrei Kuzmenko’s 2022-23 Canucks Season

Brayden Fengler / June 27, 2022
Image
The ink is barely dry on Andrei Kuzmenko’s one-year $1.8M contract, but before he even picked up a pen, anticipation was in the air about what this extremely effective young player could do for the Canucks next season. Now that his presence in Vancouver is a sure thing, the anticipation can really begin in earnest. We’re still a ways out from puck drop on the 2022-23 season, and the entire...

A Summary Of The Kuzmenko Situation

Trent Leith / June 19, 2022

It’s June in Vancouver which means the Canucks are far from the top of mind. The Stanley Cup playoffs are drawing to a close, ̶T̶h̶e̶ ̶s̶u̶n̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶s̶h̶i̶n̶i̶n̶g̶ it is still raining, and we are finally getting away from our TVs. But every once in a while you tune into Sportsnet 650, Twitter or r/Canucks to see what’s happening around the Canucks and all you see is people talking about...

Reviewing our Predictions for the Canucks’ 2021-22 Season

Brayden Fengler / June 12, 2022

With the NHL Playoffs nearly at their final stretch, we’ve almost reached that sad, yet sunny time of the year where hockey sticks are replaced with golf clubs and where yelling at your TV is replaced with yelling at your barbeque. What also usually happens around this time of year, is that the feeling of disappointment from the season that just passed begins to feel a little duller. Before you...

Move It or Lose It. J.T. Miller Trade Paramount for Canucks

Brayden Fengler / June 4, 2022

Have you ever seen that gif of the cartoon rage typing on their keyboard with such intensity that their fingers, hands, and whole arms progressively disintegrate until they are left banging their head against their keyboard? That’s how it’s felt over this past year to be in favour of a J.T. Miller trade. The dream situation in terms of the return that J.T. could’ve brought, would’ve been if he was...

Three Canucks Who Need to Step Up Next Season

Trent Leith / May 21, 2022
Image
The Vancouver Canucks continue to stare in the face of sweeping changes. Some have come and gone, and others stand directly in the Canucks path through the offseason.  The Canucks are expected to continue to evolve beyond this offseason and into the 2022/23 offseason as Patrik Allvin and Jim Rutherford continue to dismantle the old regime’s vision and start moulding their own. There are some players on the Canucks that...
