Brayden Fengler / December 23, 2022

Depending on how dialed in you are as a Canucks fan at this stage of their 2022-23 season, this very title could bring about a myriad of different emotions. If you’ve already checked out after the team’s troublesome start to the year, perhaps you’re reading the title of this article and wondering if the team has actually turned it around. However, if you’ve stuck with the Canucks game in and...

Looking Back At The Bear/Pederson Trade

Trent Leith / December 20, 2022

On October 28th, the Canucks pulled the trigger on acquiring 25-year-old right-shot defender Ethan Bear from the Carolina Hurricanes. In addition to Bear, the Canucks convinced Carolina to retain $400,000 and received “minor league forward” Lane Pederson. In return, all it took was a 2023 fifth-round pick. Bear-ly Any Risk I thought this trade was a home run immediately. Ethan Bear is a solid 5/6 defender who was drafted in...

Left on Read: 2011 Back in the Headlines + Boeser on the Block

Brayden Fengler / December 10, 2022

Have you ever composed a tweet that ends up getting zero engagement? Well, if you’re like me and aren’t boasting a number of followers similar to that of Rogers Arena’s seating capacity, then I would say the odds are pretty high. This series, “Left on Read” is our attempt here at StadiumChinatown.ca to play a small role in addressing some tweets around #Canucks Twitter that at least deserved one or...

Pettersson Flips the Script With Strong First Part of Season

Brayden Fengler / December 3, 2022
Image
Over the past few seasons, Elias Pettersson has had moments where he’s matched his team’s poor performance and moments where he’s been the shining star amongst an otherwise bland Canucks squad. This season is trending to be more like the latter. It’s clearer than ever that EP40 has been one of the most consistent forwards on a team that has otherwise been treading water since the start of the season...

What If Bo Horvat Wins the Rocket Richard?

Trent Leith / November 28, 2022

It is no secret Bo Horvat can score goals, arguably better than anyone in the league right now. What happens if this trend keeps up and Bo Horvat wins the Rocket Richard at the end of the year?  I know, there is a lot of season left for Bo to keep up this scoring pace. But Bo has been scoring at this pace since last season. Since March 15th, 2022,...

A Hockey Fan Abroad

Brayden Fengler / November 19, 2022

A week or so into the start of this season, when the Canucks’ win column was… well about the same as it is today, which is to say – disappointing, I thought it wise to attempt to write a satirical article. The thrust of this article had me making suggestions for how overly disgruntled Canucks fans should “calm down” and gain some perspective on what was only a handful of...

Horvat: Is He Scoring Himself Out Of Vancouver?

Trent Leith / November 10, 2022
Image
It is no secret Bo Horvat has put the Canucks on his back to start this season. Not only does he lead the team in goals (12) but he is second in the entire NHL behind only Connor McDavid (14). He is also the only Canuck to score a short-handed goal this season with two. He has been a goal-scoring monster in the first 13 games but also leads the...

Ethan Bear’s First Few Games In Vancouver, What did we Learn?

Trent Leith / November 7, 2022

The Vancouver Canucks have long been missing a solid right-shot defenceman. It’s a positional hole that has been at the top of fans’ minds and no doubt the top of management’s minds for quite some time now. Well, last week the Canucks finally did something about that hole in their roster by acquiring right-shot defenceman Ethan Bear from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a 5th-round pick in 2023. A...

Höglander is a Silver Lining to Contentious Canucks Start

Brayden Fengler / November 1, 2022
Image
Nothing makes you appreciate two back-to-back wins like seven consecutive losses. The Canucks’ season has been a mixed bag so far, to say the least. On the plus side, Elias Pettersson has been playing at a high level.  Unfortunately, there have been a few key injuries like Brock Boeser and Quinn Hughes keeping this team from icing their ideal roster, and Thatcher Demko has been playing uncharacteristically. This is not...
