Lach’s North Division Power Rankings (Week 6): Oilers – finally – crack the top four

Back in the early 2010s, I had a lot of optimism about how the NHL would look by the next decade. The Canucks were going to be fully through a Stanley Cup dynasty, the league was finally going to let the Phoenix Coyotes move to Quebec City, and the Edmonton Oilers were going to be […]

Needless to say, it did not work. In four games this week, Vancouver was outscored by Montreal and Toronto 23-9 […]

The Vancouver Canucks are an enigma. In fact, they have been for a long time, but the last couple weeks have been a true microcosm of it. Vancouver went from preparing to make the Canucks’ front office walk the plank for a dismal 2-5-0 start, to charting a new course back towards the shores of […]

Lach’s North Division Power Rankings (Week 3): Habs hold the crown while Canucks sink to the bottom

This week hasn’t done much to clear up the early logjam of the NHL’s North Division, but one thing is for sure: the Montreal Canadiens are very, very good. Not only did the Habs take down the Oilers on Monday, but also completely dismantled Vancouver over three games with an incredibly well rounded attack, led […]

The Sunday Crease: Roussel’s injury, training camp and how a tougher Pacific Division means a brighter Canucks future

Let’s be honest with ourselves; even though the Canucks opened training camp in Whistler on Thursday, the hockey talk in Vancouver has been focused elsewhere. It’s not very often that two faces of their respective franchises are shipped off in the same week, but when it does happen you can bet the Canadiens are involved […]
