Op-Ed: Vancouver Canucks please trade for contract and get youth, pick

My suspicion is that it is frustrating for most fans of the Vancouver Canucks to hear GM Jim Benning repeat over and over again his mantra of making the team competitive now. Of putting the 2017 playoffs ahead of the franchise's next decade, or more.

Op-Ed: Edmonton Oilers lose draft lottery yet rewarded for ineptness

They did not get the first overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft — thank heavens for small miracles — but the ineptness that is the Edmonton Oilers franchise was still rewarded Saturday. The Oilers wound up in fourth and will get a sure-fire stud.

Op-Ed: Vancouver Canucks? Vancouver Smucks! This fan is outta here!

There is pain in being a fan of a professional sports team. It comes with the territory. Ask a Seattle Seahawk fan what they felt in the moments — weeks, months — following Superbowl XLIX and they'll tell you — pain. Lots of it.

Bo knows short side: Bo Horvat scores twice, Canucks win in OT

The Vancouver Canucks made sure they did not waste a wonderful performance in goal Friday night as, despite giving up a late goal, they scored in overtime to beat the Carolina Hurricanes, 3-2. The Canucks were led by goalie Jacob Markstrom and Bo Horvat.

Op-Ed: Vancouver Canucks on a losing streak, heading for high draft pick

If there are any Vancouver Canuck fans, any hockey fans anywhere, who are of the opinion the Canucks have any chance whatever of winning the Stanley Cup this year then state your case in the comments section below. Or forever hold your peace.

Op-Ed: Unwise Canucks GM Benning ignored offers on Miller to trade Lack

Vancouver Canucks fans did not want Eddie Lack traded, period. There was a website devoted to begging GM Jim Benning to keep him and after Lack was traded there was anger. That anger has grown with news the Canucks could have dealt Ryan Miller instead.

Mindful Canuck Ryan Miller ready: 'Feels good to be in the fight'

It's hardly an adjective you often apply to athletes, at least it's not among the first that come to mind, but for Vancouver Canuck goalie Ryan Miller 'cerebral' works. That attribute was on fully display Friday when he spoke to media after practice.

Op-Ed: Fans count Canuckleheads out, say Vancouver is done like dinner

The Calgary Flames are playing great playoff hockey while the Vancouver Canucks...not so much. Mind you they have had good stretches, even in losses, but their fans aren't buying any of that. It seems that many are counting them out.

Op-Ed: Hockey analysts show bias in comments about Alex Burrows

Alex Burrows did not get suspended for his hit upon Paul Gaustad but for most of us it was never an issue. Suspended for what? Skating in his lane and looking for a pass? Some hockey pundits have allowed their dislike of Burrows to cloud their brains.

Op-Ed: Two classless Dallas Stars trash Canucks Henrik and Daniel Sedin

Who knows why Jamie Benn, captain of the Dallas Stars, and his teammate Tyler Seguin took tasteless shots at Vancouver Canuck twin brothers Daniel and Henrik Sedin, but they did. They did it this week on a Dallas radio show.

Henrik Sedin gets 200th NHL goal as Canucks clip Red Wings

It wasn't a classic but Henrik Sedin's empty-net goal, the milestone 200th goal of his NHL career, did help nail down his team's 4-1 win over the visiting Detroit Red Wings Saturday. Sedin soon after scored number 201, again into an empty net.

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

Ryan Miller started a Vancouver Canucks road trip with his second straight shutout Friday night as he and his teammates thumped the hapless Columbus Blue Jackets, 5-0. Miller made 31 saves and has now allowed just a single goal in his last three games.

Pat Quinn, NHL great, dies at 71 in Vancouver

Pat Quinn, the Big Irishman, one of the great players, great coaches, managers and storytellers of the NHL, has died at 71. Mr. Quinn passed away at Vancouver General Hospital on Sunday night after a lengthy illness.

Canucks must decide as Bo Horvat gets 3 assists in win over Hawks

Canucks rookie Bo Horvat got three assists Sunday, the first assists of his NHL career, as Vancouver beat the visiting Chicago Blackhawks, 4-1. The team's Great Dane, Danish forward Jannik Hansen, got a hat-trick, the trigger man for each Horvat assist.

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.
