Trent Leith / March 10, 2022

On Monday the 7th the Vancouver Canucks announced their latest addition to their special warmup jerseys this season, the Pride jersey. So far this season the Canucks have worn special warmup jerseys for Diwali, the Lunar New Year, and Black History Month. The Canucks are a team that seem to put more heart and soul into their special warmup jerseys than most other teams around the league.  We spoke with...

Pros and Cons of The Canucks Trading at The Deadline

Trent Leith / March 5, 2022
Image
As the Canucks approach the trade deadline, it seems as though every option is firmly on the table for the club. Has this team shown enough to add pieces, or at the very least stay the course? Have they shown that they aren’t quite there and need a step back? Well, it depends who you ask. The 2021/22 Canucks are a Rorschach test on ice, you see what you’re looking...

Is “Experience” a Worthy Cause to Chase the Playoffs?

Brayden Fengler / March 3, 2022
Image
There’s no doubt that the Canucks have been more exciting to watch, and more successful overall in the back half of their season to date. However, their sluggish start to the year revealed an overall weakness to the team, that although maybe less prominent on select nights, still exists as a problem that the organization has yet to solve. Their lack of defensive depth and continuing difficulty to kill penalties,...

Yeah, I’m Thinking Pettersson Is Back

Brayden Fengler / February 27, 2022

“Yeah, I’m thinking I’m back.” Elias Pettersson has been the human embodiment of that John Wick quote for the last few weeks, thankfully though no dogs were harmed in whatever catalyst event seems to have jolted Petey back to form. The question though still remains, does he now have the momentum necessary to maintain this improved form or are these past few weeks just a string of hot hand moments...

Found Money: The Canuck’s Fourth Line

Trent Leith / February 25, 2022
Image
The Mottely Crew, The Motto Line, The Fourth Line, The First Line, whatever you want to call them, Matthew Highmore, Tyler Motte and Juho Lammikko’s line has been an absolute homerun under Bruce Boudreau. These three players all came to the team in trades that were more about moving someone out, rather than trades targeting them to be brought in.  This line has been found money for the Vancouver Canucks...

Conor Garland Is A Keeper

Brayden Fengler / February 20, 2022

When Conor Garland scored that amazing, yet ultimately meaningless narrow angled backhand goal in Saturday night’s loss to the Anaheim Ducks, I was shocked when I saw his season goal total appear on the jumbotron. 13 goals on the season, that’s it for Garland’s goal total this year, even though it feels like that number should be so much higher. Garland is a hard worker, seemingly in on every opportunity...

Jack Rathbone: What to do, What to do?

Trent Leith / February 18, 2022
Image
Jack Rathbone is the best Canucks prospect that the team has in their system. He is so good that he is arguably better than half of the defenders currently on the Canucks roster and yet Jack Rathbone is down in the minors. The question is, is that the right call for his development or is it better for him to be up with the big club? That’s a complicated question....

A Look at Quinn Hughes’ Improved Season

Brayden Fengler / February 13, 2022
Image
During this season a great deal of focus has been on Elias Pettersson and his largely underwhelming performances. In recent games he has seemed to be a bit more impressive, even stating in a recent media availability “I’ve been feeling good for a while now and feel like me again”. Well, that’s definitely a good thing to hear, but it’s still a waiting game to see if his performance will...

Canucks Expo-sition: No More Half Measures – Canucks Season So Far

Brayden Fengler / February 8, 2022

Here we are, the Canucks are hanging onto a playoff race by the thinnest of margins coming out of the All-Star Break, the unofficial halfway mark of the season. A lot has happened this season to date already, so we at StadiumChinatown.ca decided it would be a great time to dust off the best train-related pun we have and bring back the Expo-sition for a quick recap of every major...

Spencer Martin: The End of an Era, or Is It?

Trent Leith / January 30, 2022
Image
Spencer Martin was a player that the Canucks took a flyer on back in July, acquiring him from the Tampa Bay Lighting for “future considerations”. Boy howdy was that a high-value pick-up seeing as he just got four points in three games against some of the NHL’s finest. Not to mention he did all this while the Canucks were playing with a depleted roster. Martin got his first start in...
