Trent LeithCanucks Weekly FaresLeave a Comment

In a parallel universe, this week would’ve been a truly awesome one for the Canucks. The skate was finally freed, and by now they should be well on their way to cementing their place in the standings to lock in a playoff appearance on the other side of the All-Star Break. However, that universe is not the one this Canucks team exists in. Although the famous flying skate logo did … Read More

How Should Demko Return to the Lineup

Brayden FenglerPlayersLeave a Comment

We’re well over a month since Thatcher Demko last tended the pipes for the Canucks, and it’s been frustrating to watch this Canucks team play without their starter since December 3rd. Although Bruce Boudreau would no doubt like to have his star goaltender back in action, the fact remains that Demko was not performing well for Vancouver during the first part of the season, prior to his injury.

Now though, the Caunucks seem to have put themselves in a position where that may no longer be a problem.

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

Trent LeithPlayersLeave a Comment

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.

What to Expect if Michael DiPietro Gets NHL Action

Brayden FenglerPlayersLeave a Comment

Michael DiPietro has had an interesting tenure with the Canucks organization. He was drafted in 2017, which despite my internal clock telling me that 2017 was last year, it was actually 5 years ago.

DiPietro has at least spent a total of 54 games backstopping the Canucks’ AHL affiliate team over the … Read More
