Canucks Goal Of The Season: Rnd 2 Br. 3: Hank vs Vrbata

Hank's empty netter on his arss vs Radim's beauty backhander. Which goal was better? This is what's so fun about tournaments. As they go along the decisions on winners gets tougher. This bracket is no exception. Do you love Henrik Sedin's empty net goal scored while sliding on on his ass? OK, but then how does that compare to a Radim Vrbata classic backhander patience goal? Let's get it on! 1. Henrik Sedin's empty net goal scored while sliding on his ass is a virtual orgasm: I mean, you never see that kind of play. But... Radim Vrbata's 3-1 goal on February 13 is a display not only of his...

Iain MacIntyre: Canucks counting on Radim to rise

As he looks back now after all these years, there were a couple of things Radim Vrbata didn’t appreciate when he broke into the National Hockey League as a 20-year-old rookie with the Colorado Avalanche.

Canucks Goal Of The Season: Round 2 Bracket 1: Vrbata vs Richardson

The original list of 32 goals have been narrowed down to 16 by you, the voter. Round 2 has begun. Let's dive back in as we figure out what play was the Canucks' goal of the regular season. 1. Radim Vrbata got a lot of playing time with the Sedins 5 on 5 in the early stages of the seasons. He was really money money money with them on the power play. Check out the Sedins doing circles and passing here and then finally setting up Radim The Dream: Yea, thank you, Edmonton for letting the Twins play Globetrotters on your ass! 2. Brad Richardson once in a while shows some excellent offensive...

Kuzma: Czech mates Vrbata and Hudler ready for Canucks v. Flames playoff duel

Radim Vrbata doesn’t drink beer. So there wasn’t a friendly wager for a keg of Czechvar lager with Jiri Hudler to see which Czech Republic native and former national and world championship team member would score more goals this NHL season.

Vrbata cleans up at Canucks Players Awards

With the Jets win over the Flames earlier in the day, the Canucks secured home ice advantage in the first round, making the evening's game against the Oilers completely meaningless. What was not meaningless, at least in the eyes of the Canucks PR department anyway, was the unveiling of this year's Canucks Players awards. To nobody's surprise, Radim Vrbata captured two of the awards, while Derek Dorsett and Chris Tanev snatched trophies of their own. Let's get to the analysis. Radim Vrbata - Team MVP and Most Exciting Player Radim Vrbata picked up arguably the two most coveted awards the...

Radim Vrbata happy with Canucks, no longer in a hockey desert

Radim Vrbata happy with Canucks, no longer in a hockey desert

On a professional level, Radim Vrbata has plenty of reasons to be pleased about his first National Hockey League season as a Vancouver Canuck. “If you would tell me before the season that first off, we make the playoffs, I would be happy about that,” he says. “And that I would score 30 goals and over 60 points, I would be happy with that.”

Canucks Goal Of The Year: Rnd 1 Br 11: Hansen vs Hank

Carrying on with the competition, this installment features a tip-in goal by Beaker and an insane passing play by Radim Vrbata. 1. On Hansen's goal, Double D Derek Dorsett does all the work, chipping the puck to himself into the Blackhawks' corner and putting it out front to the Great Dane. I think Beaker used his nine iron: OK fine, he used his pitching wedge. What a play! 2. When Vrbata was on the Sedin line earlier in he season there was some magic. Did it really get any better than this though: I love it when John Garrett says "Oh man!" after a goal. Then you know it's a beauty. When...

The Provies: Nothing Vrbata can’t do, Lack either becomes a pioneer or Lundqvist, and the boat party going mainstream

Radim Vrbata is straight fire. In a month which can be cruel to smaller, skilled wingers, the player Higgins dubbed “The Assassin” has been just killing it.
