Canucks blame game – Chicago outlasts Vancouver 2-1

For what Hamhuis is being paid he isn’t giving the Canucks enough on either end of the rink.

NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Ben Lypka breaks down the Chicago Blackhawks win over the Canucks on Saturday night. Ben calls out Dan Hamhuis, Zach Kassian, and Alex Burrows. As Ben put it, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane were noticeable the entire game and had genuine scoring chances. Watching a guy like Duncan Keith play last night is proof of just how far away Hamhuis is from wearing the red and white.

Ben points out a lot of that rejoicing is probably due to the fact that Henrik and Daniel have been, by far, the team’s best two forwards so far this season.

Vancouver Canucks blogger Richard Hodges Love Em Hate Em hockey blog. He recaps and rewinds the win on Friday night over the Blackhawks.

Keith suspended 5 games

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.
