NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Mitch Dyck brings us up to speed on the storylines from last nights Canucks win over the Chicago Blackhawks. If there was ever a perfect example of baptism by fire, for Frank Corrado his first NHL game would be just that. What happens now is anyone’s guess. Mitch thinks Corrado’s play last night warrants another look in Thursday’s game against the Ducks. Kevin Bieksa and Chris Tanev take your time.

Richard Hodges previews the Vancouver Canucks vs. Chicago Blackhawks Feb 19 matchup. Richard points out the Canucks Andrew Ebbett is on waivers which means that he’ll be abandoned by his large family in Chicago quite like Kevin McAllister was in Home Alone.

Vancouver Canucks blogger Richard Hodges Love Em Hate Em hockey blog. He recaps and rewinds the win on Friday night over the Blackhawks. Richard says this game highlights what a coin toss joke they are. You take a close game with this rivalry and let it be decided by an individual competition. Aside from Duncan Keith, all eyes were on Roberto Luongo making his third straight start against the team that haunts him.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Mitch Dyck brings us up to speed on the storylines he’s watching for and delivers his winning game-day tips for the Blackhawks vs. Canucks game tonight. He says in order to win, the Canucks need to remember that there’s a time and place for everything and that this may not be the time to seek so called “vigilantly” justice. The defense in front of Roberto Luongo will have to be sharp tonight as well.
Richard Hodges previews the Chicago Blackhawks vs. Vancouver Canucks Feb 1 matchup. The quad force of Patrick Sharp, Marian Hossa, Patrick Kane, and Jonathan Toews has 32 points already this season. An easy game this will not be. Duncan Keith’s elbow on Daniel Sedin was the death of the 2011 – 2012 Vancouver Canucks. There will be payback tonight. Hopefully Zack Kassian introduces himself to the faces of many a Hawk.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Mitch Dyck weighs in today with some thoughts on the Canucks thru the years in a flashback post detailing his top five moments in time. Number One.

NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Mitch Dyck weighs in today on some classic Rick Rypien moments in time today one year to the day since the death of Ryp. He recounts a special goal in this one. Vancouver had many highlight reel goals in 2008/09, but to see Rick Rypien and Darcy Hordichuk combine on a goal was pretty special. Not to mention some good scraps like one with Hal Gill.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger the Flying V remembers Rick Rypien one year after his tragic death. Depression is a deceptive issue, one that rarely manifests itself publicly, instead secluding the mind to the dark recesses found behind a fake smile. In the macho-man world of professional hockey, there seems to be little room for talk about depression, a disease still perceived by many to be a simple weakness.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Mitch Dyck points weighs in today on a possible signing by the Vancouver Canucks Cristobal Huet. While Huet’s numbers haven’t been bad while overseas, it’s a different game than the one in North America. He points out Eddie Lack is ready for the NHL. He thinks this is the least likely, simply because the Canucks have reached out to Huet.
