NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger C-Mac chimes in with his thoughts on the disgrace that was game 1 of the Western conference quarter finals last night in Van City. Fun times ahead? He can’t see Daniel Sedin ready to come back following some less than promising reports on post-practice headaches, so the team needs to focus on staying with five-on-five play in which they looked most comfortable.
C-Mac chimes in with his version of a playoff preview for the Vancouver Canucks and tells us which lessons the Canucks hopefully learned from last year’s successful failure, if you will. Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider have to be utilised well but how about the 3rd line? Chris Higgins, Jannik Hansen and Samme Pahlsson have been playing balls out but can they keep it up and when does Coach Vee shake it up?
C-Mac is back with this hilarious list of people Milan Lucic’s girlfriend is probably going to tweet about next. Let’s just hope she leaves the children and any more women out of this. Oh wait, nope! Duck and cover Cory Schneider, duck and cover. Canucks Owner Francesco Aquilini needs to keep his head up too.

Chris Higgins must be excited about the playoffs as well since the winger is doing his best Mikeal Samuelsson in the 2010 playoffs impression over the past week. Tough call for the 3rd spot with guys like Maxim Lapierre, Sami Salo, and Alex Burrows making strong cases.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Steve Lee tells us the newest Twins that could take the ice for the Canucks with Daniel Sedin out. No longer able to lineup beside his brother, Hank may to see time on the second line, or sandwiched in between what could be Vancity’s newest fan favorite duo.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger C-Mac weighs in with on the emergence of young defenseman Chris Tanev. He points out his stats are meagre on the offensive end with only two assists in 18 games but Tanev’s game is one where he needs to be watched daily to truly appreciate the sense of calm, thoughtfulness, and perception he brings to his positional play.
It’s NWSB Canucks Insider C-mac coming at you with the ALL-2000′s Canucks team. Who makes a return to the lineup? Markus Naslund perhaps? How about Captain Canuck Trevor Linden? What about between the pipes? I wonder if Dan Cloutier made the roster. Probably not. We gave the nod obviously to Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider.
Canucks insider Kevin Vanstone breaks down the Game 71 matchup between the Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Vancouver Canucks. After defenseman Jack Johnson tallied to cut Vancouver’s lead to 3-2, Daniel Sedin capitalized on the power play 15:19 into the third for his team-leading 30th marker and second goal of the game. Van City kept it together after that for the win on Saturday night.
After 60+ games the Vancouver Canucks GM Gillis has made his move and the team has the time and motivation to utilize the gifts he has given them. We are about to embark on another heck of a ride down the stretch run. Vancouver has begun to truly assert itself as a difficult team to break down. Roberto Luongo, Daniel Sedin, Ryan Kesler, David Booth, and Sami Salo are on top of their games.

Somehow, ex-Canucks forward Steve Bernier is on the New Jersey Devils even though he was pretty sure he didn’t exist anymore.

Canucks blogger Steve Lee brings us a good piece on the Vancouver Canucks today. Kevin Bieksa is under the spotlight for the Canucks. Currently sitting in a scoring funk since the turn of the year, with only one goal since the Canucks New Years Eve tilt against the LA Kings, Bieksa pocketed a pair of goals during the Canucks back to back weekend.
