Roberto who? Ryan Miller gets 2nd straight shutout, 'Nucks win

Vancouver Canucks home sellout streak ends at 474 - narrowly

The Vancouver Canucks had quite the sellout streak going but it ended Saturday night. The game against the Tampa Bay Lightning marked the first time the Canucks did not sell out a regular season game in 474 games, a streak dating back to Nov. 14, 2002.

NHL’s Pacific Division features frontrunners and rebuilding teams

As the beginning of the NHL season looms, it’s time to review the teams' off-season moves as well as take a glimpse of what the 2014-15 NHL season may hold for them. Here’s a quick breakdown of how the Pacific division teams spent their summer.

Beer-league goalie answers tweet, plays with Vancouver Canucks Special

For Vancouver's Tristan Jones, a beer-league hockey goalie and a professional goalie instructor, last Monday started out a typical day. It didn't end that way though, not by a long shot, as the 27-year-old wound up playing goal for the Vancouver Canucks.

Are the Vancouver Canucks looking at newly-fired Dan Bylsma?

With today's announcement from Pittsburgh that the Pens have hired Jim Rutherford to replace Ray Shero, and that the G.M.'s first act was to fire coach Dan Bylsma, the question becomes - what about Bylsma? Could he end up with the Vancouver Canucks?

NHL rumor du jour: Vancouver Canucks to name Jim Benning G.M.

Vancouver - This rumor has been around for a month, but it's now a rumor closer to fruition. Jim Benning, currently an assistant GM with the Boston Bruins, may be named this week as the new GM for the Vancouver Canucks.

Op-Ed: Unlike Canucks, Maple Leafs leave coach Carlyle twisting in wind

The situation with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks are roughly analogous. Each had a disastrous 2013-14 NHL season and missed the postseason, for the Leafs it was more of the same, for the Canucks their first miss in six years.

Trevor Linden fires John Tortorella, news on Canucks GM search

Vancouver - Today's news out of Vancouver Canuck-land comes as no surprise so it's best treated briefly: new president Trever Linden fired coach John Tortorella and his assistant, Mike Sullivan, and will start interviewing candidates for the G.M. job soon.

Will Jim Benning be the next GM of the Vancouver Canucks ?

It is one of the most coveted gigs in hockey, the job of an NHL general manager, and the Vancouver Canucks have not had one since Mike Gillis beat a forced but hasty retreat. Newly-appointed president Trevor Linden has a GM uppermost on his to-do list.

Op-Ed: Daniel Sedin hit draws moronic remarks from Hartley, Brian Burke

Here's the thing about hits from behind, hits near the boards and on the numbers: it's a crap shoot. The player being hit might skate away unharmed or, like so many have, be severely concussed.

John Tortorella won't, and shouldn't, be fired by Trevor Linden

The prospects of a second season behind the bench of the Vancouver Canucks don't look good for John Tortorella. But this pundit is of the opinion that he'll be back. There are a variety of reasons, number one of which is he's a good coach.

Op-Ed: Memo to Vancouver Canuck fans - no worry, be happy!

Mike Gillis has been fired, Trevor Linden has been hired, and the Vancouver Canucks are playing out the string. The talk shows, media, fans, even the players, the entire Canuck Nation, is speculating on the future and there's been lots of doom and gloom.

Roberto Luongo's 35-save performance against Stars helps Canucks

Two days after his 35th birthday Roberto Luongo gave his former Vancouver Canuck teammates a gift by beating the Dallas Stars, 3-2, on Sunday. The Canucks have a slim chance of making the Stanley Cup playoffs and a Dallas win would have eliminated them.

Op-Ed: Canuck fan counts the ways he's happy Roberto Luongo is gone

It's over! Done! Yes, at last the unthinkable but constantly thought of has occurred, now nearly a month ago, and Roberto Luongo was dealt back to the Florida Panthers. It's taken time to process but I am ready to speak. First word out of the gap?

Canucks Alex Burrows may be out again after nasty Shea Weber hack

The injury parade that has plagued the NHLs Vancouver Canucks this season looks to be continuing. On a day forwards Daniel Sedin and Ryan Kesler returned to practice, winger Alex Burrows was absent. GM Mike Gillis suggested he might be out a while.

Take that, Torts! Roberto Luongo gets shutout back with Panthers

So take that coach John Tortorella! Roberto Luongo, dissed by his former coach, who gave a key start to his back-up, got lots of respect in his first game after being traded back to the Florida Panthers. Lou got the club's first shutout in two years.

Op-Ed: Roberto Luongo trade sees pundit Cam Cole take a shot at Canucks

When it comes to hockey opinions and the NHL, any pundit with a forum likely to reach others - hey, I got one! - is sure to have a take on a trade the magnitude of the Roberto Luongo deal. It was a newsworthy exchange of NHL goods, no question.

Op-Ed: Whinging about Tortorella remarks makes hockey fans seem wimpy

I haven't gotten a bead on exactly who did all the griping about Vancouver Canucks' coach John Tortorella's words to the effect that he'd prefer Sweden to beat Canada for the gold at Sochi. But whomsoever it was needs a course in sucking it up.

Dale Weise suggests Canucks may go for ugly Coyote Martin Hanzal

Phoenix Coyotes forward Martin Hanzal has some 'splaining to do and it appears the Vancouver Canucks have players who may do more than just listen. Canuck Dale Weise told media Saturday today's game may see Hanzal forced to "answer the bell."

Op-Ed: Calgary Flames, Vancouver Canucks fiasco all on Bob Hartley

Let's start here: the Calgary Flames are a pathetic excuse for an NHL hockey team and coach Bob Hartley should concentrate on making them a viable on-ice product. Not on fighting. Not on creating a circus-like atmosphere.

Henrik Sedin consecutive games streak to finally end at 679 games

It had to happen eventually and it looks like now is the time. The Vancouver Canucks are playing in Edmonton against the Oilers Tuesday night and the team says that for the first time since Feb. 23, 2003, captain Henrik Sedin won't be in the lineup.

Nolan tries running Henrik Sedin but won't fight Tom Sestito

There's an unspoken rule in the NHL that if you try running a top player, not just bodycheck, but hurt, you have to face the music. Jordan Nolan, all 6'3" and 230 pounds of him, did the first part Monday night but turtled when it came to the second.

Canucks goalie Eddie Lack looking forward to stint as Number One

Depending on which report you believe, Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo is out with a groin injury either 7 to 10 days or he's day-to-day. Either way, until he returns his back-up, Eddie Lack, is ready to enjoy a stint as the go-to guy.

Roberto Luongo out 7-10, Canucks call up goalie Joacim Eriksson

While Vancouver Canuck GM Mike Gillis has not revealed the full extent of the injury suffered by goalie Roberto Luongo, he has called up goalie Joacim Eriksson from the Utica Comets of the AHL. Gillis called up Eriksson Friday morning.

NHL Scores: Stars hold off high scoring Canucks 2-1

Vancouver Canucks trade for two forwards from Carolina Hurricanes

The Vancouver Canucks preseason schedule is over but that doesn't mean their roster is set. On Saturday, the club traded with the Carolina Hurricanes for young forwards Zac Dalpe, 23, and Jeremy Welsh, 25.

Op-Ed: Zach Kassian hit on Oilers' Sam Gagner not intentional

On Monday Zach Kassian has a hearing with the NHL disciplinary committee for his hit on Sam Gagner on Saturday night. The hit's result is not good for Gagner or the Edmonton Oilers but that doesn't mean the Vancouver Canucks forward should be suspended.

NHL News and Rumors: Brenden Morrow to Vancouver Canucks?

Vancouver - The Vancouver Canucks are one of the better teams in the NHL, but age and a lack of physical players are starting to catch up with this franchise, but help could be on the way.
