NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks’ blogger Josh Hall gives you some options should the Canucks choose to debut new uniforms next year at BC Place. Am I suggesting the retirement of the beloved Orca? Perhaps that is the easiest option regardless of its popularity, which is split down the middle. The club added the killer whale to its uniforms back in 1997, two years after Orca Bay Sports and Entertainment was founded.
It’s always fun when our two insiders sit down for a chat. Two of our Vancouver Canucks bloggers here at NWSB Josh (@vancan19) and Kevin (@flyingVhockey) sat down at their keyboards and had their own 2012 NHL all star game mock draft. Team Daniel Alfredsson vs. Team Zdeno Chara, it should be quite the spectacle. Please pick up your cheese gift basket on your way out the door.
Vancouver Canucks blogger Richard Hodges Love Em Hate Em Canucks hockey blog. He recaps and rewinds the win over the Ottawa Senators. Other than Don Cherry calling out Ron McLean out for hating Alex Burrows this game looked great after 20 minutes. Then it fizzled out. Ryan Kesler was front and centre in this game with two goals. Nick Foligno and Chris Neil did their best Bruins imitation.
It’s 2011 Vancouver Canucks vs. Ottawa Senators (West vs. East) smack talk time. Next up is the Sens, and Richard has 5 reasons he can’t stand their hockey team. It seems strange but the Ottawa Senators don’t usually sell out. The problem is they have no identity. What about their fateful decision to keep Wade Redden over Zdeno Chara. How’s that look now?
