Give Goldie a Look

While Canucks fans and coaching staff deliberate line-up changes with the pending return of Loui Eriksson and Brendan Gaunce, the focus shifts to who steps out of the top 12 to make room for one or both of these guys.

Silver Lining Summary – Ovi and the Caps get Nucked Up

There is no need to seek out a silver lining from last night’s game between the Canucks and Capitals. The Vancouver Canucks continue to roll-on, surprising even the most optimistic pundits. Thursday night marked their fourth win in a row – and it was a special one. The Canucks beat last years’ President’s Trophy winners, […]

Shout out to our Caps!

As a life long British Columbian sports fan I MUST give an emphatic shout out to our very own Vancouver WhiteCaps! Facing an elimination game to kick off this year’s post-season, the Caps needed a victory or they would be cleaning out their lockers.

POLL Question: What is Jake Virtanen’s Ceiling?

Jake Virtanen appears to be coming into his own. Despite limited minutes, his role with the Sedin twins has opened him up for some offensive success early in this season – but are fans raising their diminished expectations of the young Abbotsford native? I think most of us can agree that a guy like Derek […]
