Quinn Hughes should play with Troy Stecher when he makes his Canucks debut

Quinn Hughes should play with Troy Stecher when he makes his Canucks debut

When Quinn Hughes signed his entry-level contract with the Canucks over a week ago, fans were eager to see the fleet-footed defenceman in action. Regrettably, Hughes wasn’t ready to hit the ground running, or the ice skating, as it were. While he told reporters when he first arrived in Vancouver that he had asked to skate that morning, the Canucks wanted to wait for the In fact, Hughes has yet to skate with the Canucks at all, as an MRI revealed a deep bone bruise as a result of a shot he blocked in the penultimate game of his NCAA season.

Vancouver Canucks: Why they should hold onto Loui Erikson

Some have suggested that the Vancouver Canucks will buy out Loui Eriksson, but GM Jim Benning should retain him for at least one more year. It’s been three years since the Vancouver Canucks handed Loui Eriksson a six-year contract worth $36 million, and nobody needs to be reminded that it’s been a poor investment thus […] Vancouver Canucks: Why they should hold onto Loui Erikson - The Canuck Way - The Canuck Way - A Vancouver Canucks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Why the Vancouver Canucks should draft Bowen Byram

The Vancouver Canucks may have a chance — albeit a slim one — at selecting Vancouver Giants defenceman Bowen Byram at the draft this year. Here’s why they shouldn’t hesitate to call his name if he’s still available when the Canucks make their first pick. The NHL Draft is in Vancouver this year.

Who are some young, right-handed defencemen the Canucks could target in a trade?

Who are some young, right-handed defencemen the Canucks could target in a trade?

The Canucks have an issue on the right side of their defence. When you look at their long-term future on the right side, there are some major concerns. Chris Tanev is on the top pairing, but his game has declined and his body keeps breaking. Alex Biega might be able to play consistently on the third pairing, but he’s about to turn 31 and likely to experience a decline of his own. In the prospect system, Jalen Chatfield and Mitch Elliot are long shots to make the NHL. That leaves Troy Stecher and newly-signed prospect Jett Woo as the only two right-side defencemen that could reasonably be...

Four reasons you should still be watching the 2018-19 Canucks season

Four reasons you should still be watching the 2018-19 Canucks season

If you gave up on this Canucks season a week ago (or more), you could easily be forgiven. Not only did the Canucks go on a long losing skid, the sun also came out over Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. It's completely understandable if you chose hanging out on a patio over watching the struggling Canucks.

Vancouver Canucks: The playoff dream isn’t over after all

The Vancouver Canucks have now won three straight games, and suddenly, it’s not crazy to think this team could squeak into the postseason. Before the Vancouver Canucks visited the Dallas Stars on Sunday, it was clear that they needed an absolute miracle to reach the playoffs. And that miracle might be coming true.

Canucks News & Rumors: Benning, Biega, Pettersson & Bure

It’s a difficult part of the season for the Vancouver Canucks, one way or another.

I Watched This Game: Canucks stymie Senators comeback on a wild Wednesday

Ever since he was traded to the Ottawa Senators, Anders Nilsson has suddenly turned into a fantastic goaltender. Heading into Wednesday’s game, Nilsson had a .917 save percentage in 20 games with the Senators. He was coming off a 37-save performance against the Leafs and, before that, a 35-save shutout of the St. Louis Blues. Meanwhile, Jacob Markstrom has made a legitimate case to be the Canucks’ MVP this season. His .915 save percentage on the season is well above the league average of .909 and, when you take into account the quality of shots he’s faced, you can make the argument...

Can Alex Biega be a consistent top-six defenceman?

Can Alex Biega be a consistent top-six defenceman?

Over the past few years, Alex Biega has found his niche in the NHL as a seventh defenceman. He’s hassle-free: even when he’s a healthy scratch for weeks on end, he still works hard in practice and is ready to plug into the lineup at a moment’s notice to provide a little energy and some reliable minutes. When Alex Biega signed his two-year contract extension a year ago, however, he believed he had something more to give beyond being a seventh defenceman.
