Vancouver Canucks

The Vancouver Canucks selected Finnish defender Olli Juolevi fifth overall in the 2016 NHL entry draft. He’s been hyped to be the future of the Canucks’ blue line but the question is, should you believe the hype?

Here we are again, with another trade deadline approaching, hopes rising and rumors swirling.

Injuries derailed the surprisingly competitive Vancouver Canucks in December, and they haven’t quite recovered just yet. Star players were hitting injured reserve left and right and Bo Horvat was hands-down the biggest loss.

A month ago, it seemed the Vancouver Canucks had plenty of questions in terms of what to do. They were in the middle of the playoff race and playing well behind a legitimate first line and steady goaltending. Since Bo Horvat went down with a foot injury, the Canucks have won only two of their

For years, Alex Edler has been a polarizing figure in the Vancouver sports market. With injuries and age accumulating, we’ve likely passed the days of prime Edler. That doesn’t mean, though, that the debate on the now 31-year-old Swede has ended. In fact, if anything, the division has only increased. Critics of Edler say that

As a team, the Vancouver Canucks have been inconsistent this season. As individuals, certain players have taken great steps forward, whilst others have failed to gain momentum. 27 games in, we should have a good idea of who dresses when Vancouver is fully fit. However, the Canucks’ best team is far from certain. This is

Not much was expected from the Vancouver Canucks this season. That’s what happens when you have two consecutive campaigns of finishing second to last in the Western Conference, with the third-fewest points in the NHL. Last season was particularly dire for the Canucks, as they managed just 69 points. This represented their lowest total in an

The Vancouver Canucks were supposed to have many weaknesses this season, and goaltending was near the top of that list. After Ryan Miller departed for Disneyland in the offseason, Jacob Markstrom was presumably going to take over the starting job. It was the logical decision, even though his previous career-high in starts was only 33 games,

You’ve likely heard of the saying that perception is reality. In this respect, Vancouver Canucks fans are often described as among the whiniest in the NHL. While you can argue how fair this perception is, the fans didn’t help themselves with their reaction to Brock Boeser being a healthy scratch for the home opener against

Entering the 2017-18 regular season, the overriding sentiment was that Vancouver Canucks fans shouldn’t get their hopes up. While professional sports can be unpredictable, not much was expected from the team based in British Columbia. However, when the Canucks started the campaign with a thrilling 3-2 win over Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers, you couldn’t help

He’s back. The dragon slayer, and everyone’s favourite pest returns to Vancouver tonight in the city where his illustrious NHL career began.

It was bound to happen. After starting the 2017-18 campaign with a shutout win over their provincial rivals and media across the league singing their praises, the Edmonton Oilers showed they still have a ways to go in order to reach the lofty expectations of their recent press clippings.
