Game 7 in any professional sport is a true testimate to all players skill but more so it is an extreme test of all players determination and their willingness to compete. On Saturday evening, after losing game 6 and after being held off the scoreboard for the third time in the series, the Canucks coach Alain Vigneault called out his players. Namely, he called out the 'play...
With the Vancouver Canucks adding restricted free agent Ryan Shannon into their 07-08 line-up the club appears to be eching every so close to the $50.3 million salary cap. Shannon's one-year contract of $550,000 pushes the Canucks over $45 million dollars with 20 players under contract. Throw in the expected pro debut of defencemen Luc Bourdon and the more permenant NHL...
Is it possible that Trevor Linden is delaying this contract status to show to Vigneault that benching Linden for so many games last year was a mistake? If Canucks fans can remember, Linden was benched lots throughout the season, even after a 2 goal game, even after one of his best games of the season. When he was put with the Sedins, he had many chances, hit the post a ...

All Is Well In Canuckland

With a simple flick of the wrist, everything on the west coast was settled. For now, Trevor Linden returning to the Vancouver Canucks line-up for yet another season simply eases the pain in waiting for the next debacle as the faithful wait for the arrival of yet another jersey. When training camp begins, Trevor Linden will bring a sense of stability to a line-up that for t...
With this being my first blog entry at Hockeybuzz, I figured I'd start by doing a general outline of the Canucks in the offseason and the team at its current state. The team, even though they finished top of the Northwest Division (Typically considered the most balanced, if not hardest, division in the league. Though I'd have probably given hardest to Pacific), we...
Ok, a month or two ago, I was reading that Pete was going to play for his father's league back in Sweden...What happened? TSN.com is reporting that Ottawa and Vancouver are now in a "race" to pick up this injury-prone forward from his one year stint in Nashville after being dealt away by the Philadelphia Flyers. His career is winding down, and I honestly think that if h...
Long gone are the days where a team stays loyal to it's players. Heck I understand that the NHL that we are in today, you need wins and you need to do whatever you have to do to win. BUT what the hell happened to Respect. So many things are flying through my head right now. But the most obvious is - When we are struggling so much, and having to deal with injurie...

Ryan Kesler the answer ?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
I remember a few years ago when Bobby Clarke splashed the water with the whole offer sheet thing, with Ryan Kesler. Little did he know what kind of message that really sent. I believe that the NHL is now in a state of rebuilding, and long gone are the days where a player could just go to the highest bidder. I am going to focus on Kesler here, because of obvious reaso...
Alright we are getting down to crunch time. With seven games left in the season this is how it's looking. Calgary - 3 Colorado - 2 Edmonton -1 Minnesota - 1 I know I have cursed the schedule earlier this year, for those many back-to-back-to-back games or the 5 days off stretches, but this could be the best way to finish the season. Everything is in our hand...
Obviously fans and coaches alike appreciate grit and the willingness to go into the tough areas of the ice, but what seems to be equally valuable, even if it is at a sub-conscious level, is the ability to curl the upper lip and stare right through a player as though you’re going to rip his heart out. More than one NHLer has backed away from Kevin Bieksa after realizin...
