Pacific Peeks: Vancouver Canucks

It’s been a long, long time since you could mention the Vancouver Canucks and “playoffs” in the same sentence. And yet, here we are. The Canucks have a very clear vision on how to celebrate their 50th anniversary season properly; a season full of commemorating the past, a few throwback jersey nights and an exciting young team that looks […]

The Sunday Crease: Gagner’s revival, Roussel’s got bite and A WIN, finally

Exhale British Columbia, they’ve done it. After nearly two and a half weeks, they’ve finally done it.

The Sunday Crease: Pettersson aftermath, Boeser and Horvat gaining momentum and a…podcast?

Pacific Preview: Vancouver Canucks

Ask a Sharks fan for their thoughts on the Vancouver Canucks, and the answers probably won’t be very positive. Memories of a once dominant franchise featuring some of hockey’s most hated pests like Ryan Kesler and Alex Burrows have left San Jose’s fanbase with a very foul taste in their mouths, even though the Canucks of today are nothing like […]
