Vancouver Canucks: Lowering the bar for Jim Benning

Looking back on the Anders Nilsson and Michael Del Zotto trades, the Vancouver Canucks are finally moving on from some of their mistakes and acquiring picks in return. However, it’s sad how low the bar is set for Jim Benning. I still can’t believe people are talking up that last game against the Oilers as […] Vancouver Canucks: Lowering the bar for Jim Benning - The Canuck Way - The Canuck Way - A Vancouver Canucks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Travis Green has high expectations and "honest love" for Nikolay Goldobin

Snoopy may have turned his into a swinging pad, but, for most people, the doghouse isn’t where they want to be. That’s where Nikolay Goldobin finds himself halfway through his first full season in the NHL. The skilled playmaker may be fourth on the Canucks in points, but questions remain about his commitment to the defensive side of the game and his ability to put up points without Elias Pettersson as his centre.

With Horvat hurting, Canucks call up Kero as a precaution

With Horvat hurting, Canucks call up Kero as a precaution

The theory behind the Canucks’ top-four centres heading into the season was to use Brandon Sutter and Jay Beagle primarily in a defensive role, freeing up Bo Horvat and Elias Pettersson for more offensive usage. The construction of the Canucks’ roster is a throwback to a pure top-six/bottom-six dichotomy, something that has been abandoned by some of the best teams in the NHL. Unfortunately, the Canucks haven’t been able to truly test whether their throwback approach will work because the four centres have rarely been healthy at the same time.

I Watched This Game: Canucks can't score in the shootout against the Oilers

Wednesday night was Hockey Talks Night for the Vancouver Canucks, who started the initiative in 2013 after the untimely passing of Rick Rypien. Even thinking about Rypien at this point makes me emotional. For the ceremonial puck drop, the Canucks brought out Rick’s brother, Wes Rypien, along with former Canucks goaltender Corey Hirsch, who has been forthright about his own battles with anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and suicidal ideation.
