NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger J. Dylan Burke weighs in on the 2014 NHL draft weekend for the Canucks. Despite all the changes made in the front office and behind the bench, Ryan Kesler was not satisfied with the Vancouver Canucks’ path. He still wanted out. It seemed like the 2014 Canucks picks reflected this move. Hello Jake Virtanen and Jared McCann.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Reggie Gill is sitting on his couch, hopefully with his pants on telling us what games he’s most looking forward to for the Vancouver Canucks during the upcoming 2012-13 campaign. Again with the Maple Leafs and a 4 o’clock puck drop on Vancouver ice. We can even hope to see Don Cherry butcher Kevin Bieksa’s name. It’s almost worth having Roberto Luongo stick around.
Vancouver Canucks Insider Josh Hall is back with his first of many features to come this June and tells us why the Brian Burke and the Toronto Maple Leafs are sensible trade partners for the Nucks. Who could come this way for Roberto Luongo? Could it be Luke Schenn, Jake Gardiner or even Ben Scrivens for the sake of backing up Cory Schneider? We’re about to find out Canucks Nation.
NWSB insider Dave B brings us another profile featuring an athlete from the Northwest. David Van Der Gulik is an Abbotsford born and bred hockey player who’s spent more time in the minors than he would have liked at this point in his career. He currently is part of the Colorado Avalanche organization but was once a member of the Calgary Flames and their AHL Affiliate, the Abbostsford Heat.
Josh Hall recently had a NWSB exclusive twitterview with Chicago Wolves goaltender Eddlie Lack. As of February 10th, 2012, Lack has a 2011-12 record of 12-11-5 in a starting role ahead of Matt Climie. He has played in 27 of 47 games this season leading the Wolves to 5th spot in the Western Conference. Eddie very recently set up a twitter account, the next step could be him in Vancouver Canucks uniform.
