The tallest and smallest players in Canucks history

When Tyler Myers steps on the ice for the first time in a Vancouver Canucks jersey, he’ll set a new franchise record. At 6’8”, Myers will be the tallest player in Canucks history. At least, according to official NHL records.

Micheal Ferland signs four-year contract with Canucks, another move could be coming

Micheal Ferland signs four-year contract with Canucks, another move could be coming

The Canucks overhauled their defence on the first day of free agency, signing Tyler Myers and Jordie Benn. Canucks general manager Jim Benning made it clear, however, that he wished they could have done more to address the team’s needs at forward. After the frenzy of July 1st, however, there was a lull as the secondary market opened up: free agents that weren’t as hotly pursued, but could still be difference makers. On Wednesday, the Canucks added some grit and goals by signing Micheal Ferland, the team’s one-time nemesis, to a four-year contract with an average annual value of $3.5...

Where do Oscar Fantenberg, Tyler Graovac, and Zane McIntyre fit on the Canucks’ depth chart?

Jim Benning’s priority on July 1st was simple: upgrade the blue line. “Going into free agency, our goal was to improve our defence and I feel real strongly that we were able to do that,” he said, while sitting alongside the biggest player, in both size and name recognition, he brought in that day: Tyler Myers. Along with Myers, Benning brought in Jordie Benn.

Seven things that are almost as tall as Tyler Myers

Seven things that are almost as tall as Tyler Myers

Vancouver made a (long expected) splash on July 1st, securing the services of towering defenceman Tyler Myers for $30 million over five seasons. While there was a mixed response to the signing, there's one thing no one can deny: Tyler Myers is very, very tall. How tall? Myers is a staggering 6’8”. If you find that difficult to picture, don’t feel bad. The human mind is simply not capable of visualizing such vast figures; it’s like trying to imagine a tesseract. To help you visualize just how tall Myers really is, we’ve assembled a list of things that are not quite as tall as his,...

According to Jim Benning, signing Tyler Myers was about “more than the analytics”

When it became clear that the Canucks were pursuing Tyler Myers in free agency, it kicked off a spirited debate in the Canucks’ fanbase. The debate was partially fueled by rumours from national media members like Elliotte Friedman and Ren Lavoie, suggesting that Myers contract would come with a $7-8 million cap hit, but also fueled by the ongoing battle between old-school hockey men and analytics. According to one side, Myers is a top-four defenceman, well worth paying $6 million per year. According to the other side, Myers is a bottom-pairing defenceman, whose five-year contract will...

Canucks sign Tyler Myers in free agency, making a small improvement for a big price

The Canucks’ big free agent signing is exactly that: big. As was widely rumoured/reported heading into July 1st, Tyler Myers is coming to Vancouver on the wings of a five-year, $30 million contract.
