png0912Scanucks11

NWSB Insider & Blogger J.D. Burke weighs in on how the 2013-14 campaign has panned out for John Tortorella and Alain Vigneault, as they adapt to their new clubs. A fair critique of Tortorella is laid out, while an appreciation for the old bench boss is also prevalent.

Over The Last 10 – My Canucks 3 Stars

Can David Booth make it three-straight games with a goal tonight in Dallas?

First things first…. Good bye Roberto Luongo… Over the last 10 games (excuse me for being a game late and a dollar short), the Vancouver Canucks found themselves to be 2-7-1 (if you want to be picky we can throw in another L from Sunday afternoon and bring that middle column to a nice round […]

Why Pavel Bure’s jersey doesn’t belong in the rafters

bure jersey

NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks Blogger Ben Lypka weighs in with the latest Canucks news, the retirement of Pavel Bure’s #10. So Ben asks the question, of course, should the Canucks really hang the Russian Rocket’s jersey from the rafters at Rogers Arena? If it were up to Ben, the answer is a big fat no. Even with all of the flash and the flare, Pavel Bure left the Canucks in the wind on more than one occasion. That doesn’t sound like team loyalty…

The Good, the bad and the ugly for the Canucks 2013-14 schedule

Canucks vs. Oilers April 4

Jan. 1 vs. Tampa Bay – Sami Salo returns to Vancouver. What type of injury will he suffer? Will the nurses at VGH remember him? March 2 vs. Ottawa in the Heritage Classic. Can’t wait to see Peter Sidorkiewicz and Doug Smail on the Sens alumni team. *Joking*

Burning questions regarding Sens vs. Canucks Heritage Classic

940-bc-place

NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks Blogger Richard Hodges brings us five burning questions about the 2014 Heritage Classic between the Canucks and the Ottawa Senators at BC Place. First question is the most obvious one, does this really constitute as an outdoor game? BC Place merely has a retractable roof it is not an outdoor stadium, and what if the weather doesn’t want to play nice, then what? But perhaps the biggest question asked by Richard is why the Sens?

Get loud for Lu! Rogers Arena should be louder than ever for Game 1

Roberto Luongo

NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Kevin “The Flying V” Vanstone is back today to tell the fans that Roberto Luongo is expected to make a surprise start tonight opposite the San Jose Sharks in Game One of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He says Cory Schneider the Ginger Jesus may not be in tonight’s lineup, but Kev expects 18, 630 Canucks fans will be there to pick up the slack.

End of season Canucks 2013 overachievers and underachievers

David Booth

NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger C-Mac weighs in on the overachievers and underachievers in Van City for the end of the 2012/13 regular season. Jason Garrison was on the underachiever side of this list at the quarter season mark, but he made a superb turnaround. Alex Edler is the single most disappointing player that the Canucks have had to endure this season. David Booth could well be the victim of Vancouver’s buyout amnesty.

Could Canucks use outdoor game for jersey change?

Could these be part of the new uniform lineup? (canucks.nhl.com)

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.

Michael D. Gillis’ worst day on the job for the Canucks

Vancouver Canucks

NWSB Vancouver Canucks writer Josh Hall slams GM Mike Gillis, calling Wednesday’s NHL Trade Deadline MG’s worst day on the job yet. But it hasn’t always been doom and gloom according to Josh. It’s just when you sign a guy like Roberto Luongo to a 12 year contract, he probably deserves a little more respect than what he’s gotten throughout this nightmarish process. Roberto’s post practice depressing and strangely endearing Q&A session was the raw truth.

Rogers Arena atmosphere during Canucks games is pathetic!

Cascadia Cup Sounders FC vs. Whitecaps FC

NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks hockey blogger Josh Hall weighs in today on a topic that is quickly surfacing as a hot button issue. It’s been just over a month since a couple Vancouver Southsiders fans were kicked out of a Canucks game for allegedly causing some, “sightline issues for other fans,” and for standing. We should applaud them says Josh. He says Canucks fans are NOT the best fans in the league! How about some of the most idiotic and ignorant fans in the league?

*My* five Canucks games in 2012 I’m not looking forward to…

Roberto Luongo

NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Mitch Dyck weighs in with his top 5 matchups he’s NOT looking forward to watching in 2012 for his Canucks. The 2012 NHL schedule came out a short time ago. A big matchup he doesn’t want to see is Roberto Luongo playing for another team in Rogers Arena, namely the Panthers. He doesn’t want to see Duncan Keith of the Blackhawks either.

My take! Vancouver Canucks 2012-2013 schedule: love’em & hate’em

Alain Vigneault

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.
