NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Ben Lypka breaks down the Canucks win on Tuesday night vs. the Nashville Predators. Jason Garrison picked up a pair of assists but had nearly six minutes of time on the power play and used his cannon to fire out six shots. Ryan Kesler was outstanding against Nashville and he wasn’t even playing a regular shift with Henrik Sedin & Daniel Sedin. Now, the Canucks return home, which could be a good or a bad thing,
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Ben Lypka breaks down the Phoenix Coyotes win over the Canucks on Tuesday night. Ben calls out Chris Tanev. He needs to make up his mind about blocking shots. The Coyotes first goal was entirely on him and he’s been screening Roberto Luongo. Is it just Ben or has Ryan Stanton been the best story for the Canucks so far this year? No more Sedins on the penalty shot please! Hell put Zac Dalpe in there.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks Blogger Richard Hodges brings us a very sobering question: Do the Canucks actually make the playoffs next year? With the new re-alignment finally taking over the landscape in the NHL, the Canucks have some pretty fierce company in their division. All three California teams are a force to deal with, and then there’s the unknown of Arizona, Calgary and Edmonton. Torts AKA John Tortorella will do his best to make it happen.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the city of Glendale voting to keep the Phoenix Coyotes in Arizona. After a four hour debate by the city council that was perhaps one of the greatest comedies to watch in recent memory, officials voted 4-3 to approve an agreement that will reportedly keep the Coyotes in Arizona. Though Renaissance Sports and Entertainment and their new partner, Global Spectrum, still have to finalize the agreement with Glendale, it’s expected that the two will agree and that the NHL will eventually approve the decision as well.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson brings you the latest news on the Phoenix Coyotes potentially relocating to Seattle. In what could be a pivotal move in getting the NBA to look at the possibility of expansion in Seattle further, the City of Glendale will vote today on a lease agreement that will decide whether or not the Phoenix Coyotes stay where they are. Should the two sides be unable to reach an agreement, it is highly likely, and some would say almost certain, that Phoenix gets relocated to Seattle.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the rumors of the Phoenix Coyotes relocating to Seattle. A franchise that hasn’t always received the best fan support, the team has been owned by the NHL since 2009 and is once again looking for a place to play, with Phoenix being the most recommended destination. But that still doesn’t mean Seattle doesn’t have a shot at getting this franchise, especially with the unstable negotiations that have been taking place to keep them in Phoenix.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks’ blogger Richard Hodges is back to give you his love ‘em and hate ‘em from Vancouver’s win over the Phoenix Coyotes. Richard points out where once a tag team of Alex Burrows and Mason Raymond centred the second line and Jordan Schroeder tried to tread water on the third, the Canucks now boast perhaps their most impressive centre depth in the Mike Gillis era. Enter Derek Roy.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks’ blogger Richard Hodges is back to give you his love ‘em and hate ‘em from Vancouver’s win over the Phoenix Coyotes Thursday night. Richard points out last night was the most emotion he’s seen Alex Edler show in a long time. The blueliner, perhaps thinking he was playing forward also like Keith Ballard, came behind the Coyote net to challenge for a puck that Mike Smith had come out to play. WHAMMO!
Richard Hodges previews the Vancouver Canucks vs. Phoenix Coyotes March 21st matchup. Richard says before Shane Doan scored in the third period Thursday, the Phoenix Coyotes had gone 245 minutes and 32 seconds without a goal. They’ve also lost four straight in that span, dropping out of the playoffs for now. David Booth has a high ankle sprain. Zack Kassian has his back issues that make it tough to predict when he gets back in the line-up.
Vancouver Canucks blogger Richard Hodges Love Em Hate Em hockey blog. He recaps and rewinds the loss Tuesday night between the Phoenix Coyotes and Vancouver Canucks. The Coyotes boring style, as Richard puts it, lulled the Canucks high powered offense to sleep, as the Nucks mustered 31 shots on Mike Smith, but only could net two of them.
Richard Hodges previews the Phoenix Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks Feb 27 matchup. Richard says this is the Canucks last game of February as they have a three day break before the Kings are in town on Saturday. They better enjoy those three days because it’s their longest until the end of the year. For the Canucks, Kevin Bieksa is battling his groin while David Booth is sick. Both probably won’t play. Cory Schneider will start in net.
NWSB Insider and northwest sports blogger Alistair Corp tells us today that Don Levin has publicly emerged to try to bring an NHL team to the Seattle area, and he’s prepared to spend $100 million. The development popped up three days before King County discusses and votes on investor Chris Hansen’s proposal to build a $490 million NBA and NHL arena. Wayne Gretzky was in town too. Coincidence?
