Josh Hall, Vancouver Canucks insider takes a break from looking forward to next season and instead looks back into the past at his favourite Canucks moments from a fan’s perspective. These moments brought people out of their seats and have helped in the creation of Canuck Nation across the globe. Matt Cooke, Dave Babych, Ryan Kesler, Roger Neilson, Alex Burrows all make the list.
NWSB insider C-Mac brings us a Northwest Coaching Profile on past Vancouver Canucks head coach Roger Neilson. He attended McMaster. As he worked his way up the minor leagues, Neilson would go on to clinch 9 Metro Toronto titles. He earned the President’s Trophy with the Rangers, and made the Stanley Cup Finals with the Canucks in 1982, after replacing Harry Neale.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger C-Mac tells Canucks nation to put down there emergency response kits and relax. The team has slumped yes, but playing just .500 hockey for the remaining games would most likely still guarantee the second seed in the Western Conference. The cast that reached the final is still largely intact. Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Alex Burrows will turn it around.
