NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Mitch Dyck weighs in today on how rookie center Jordan Schroeder is doing after 4-5 games of 2013 NHL action. The Canucks and more importantly Alain Vigneault have really let Schroeder get his feet wet so far this season.

NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Mitch Dyck reports today on the news going on in Nucks land after 2 games of the 2013 shortened season. The downside. Andrew Ebbett.

NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Reggie Gill weighs in with his ananlysis of the current news of the day. Oft used winger Dale Weise has a new contract for 2012/13 with the Canucks. Re-signing Weise, is putting a guy back in the line-up who has played with the big boys, and knows what will be expected out of him. He’s 6’2″ and 210 pounds, so he fits into that “get bigger” mentality of GM Gillis.
NWSB Insider & Vancouver Canucks writer Richard Hodges chimes in with his off-season analysis. He says to make another cup run the Canucks brass need to probably take a good hard look at finding someone who can score a goal or two or at the least, AND set up Ryan Kesler and David Booth with some regularity.
