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 […]

The Sunday Crease: Pettersson hype, Young Stars shine and State of the Blog
