Canucks have different look, approach in Year 2 with Benning

The Vancouver Canucks for years were a team built on speed and skill. Entering their second year under general manager Jim Benning, the Canucks are emphasizing hard work and a pack mentality as they try to return to the playoffs.

Henrik, Daniel Sedin Play H-O-R-S-E In Throwback Grizzlies Jerseys (Video)

Vancouver Canucks forwards Henrik and Daniel Sedin have been two of the NHL’s best players for about a decade. The twins recently competed in a game of H-O-R-S-E in the first episode in Season 2 of “Sedin vs. Sedin.” Luckily for them, they chose hockey over basketball growing up in Sweden. The best part of this video might be the throwback jerseys worn by both brothers. These...

Alexandre Burrows believes the Canucks can be as good as any other NHL team

Long story short, the Canucks made some questionable decisions and we’ve already listed them as one of three teams who failed to improve this summer. Despite all of the vocal criticism, Alexandre Burrows believes that the Canucks have the ability to be as good as anybody...

The Vancouver Canucks have made some puzzling decisions this summer

The Vancouver Canucks have made some puzzling decisions of late. General manager Jim Benning isn’t exactly putting on a clinic on how to GM. It’s hard to forget he handed out sizable extensions to bit-players. Derek Dorsett is a solid fourth liner, but is he really worth $10.6 million over four seasons? Benning thought so. The same day he signed Dorsett, he also signed defenseman...

Vancouver Canucks: Time for a youth movement

Let me begin by commending the Canucks on a marked improvement over the fiery, Tortorella-driven train-wreck that the 2013-14 campaign became; their response to one of their worst seasons in the last decade was far better than many hockey fans (myself included) could have imagined. That being said, Vancouver’s elimination at the hands of the Calgary Flames […] The post Vancouver...

Simply put, Ryan Miller is a pretty good goalie. He suffered a knee injury that cost him more than a month of ice time.
