Bieksa is one of the League's top 20 scoring d-men has gotta be my surprise. I knew this guy was good last year, solid- but he has really become a real blue collar work with future Captain potential. He's rounding out nicely as a shutdown d-men but I'm amazed with how many points he's put up. The Nu...

Part of me feels sorry this guy- in the end he never asked to get pummeled by Bert per se, and I can understand why he doesn't want to forgive Bert- That's his right and he's entitled to that. But this "breaking the silence" and the other times he has filed motions and sued Bert is always timed perf...

Re: I'm mad as hell!!!

Because those fricken jerks just went out and killed Captain America! I'm not kidding. Read the goddamned headline. "Captain America Slain." It's all there in black and white. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20070307.wcaptain0307/BNStory/International/home I mean, why, oh why did...

I worry that bandwagon riders make nuckleheads look bad sometimes too. I dont like it when the fans boo thier own team. Even if the team deserves it. Yea, I'm not big on the booing of your own team either- you're their to support your team, remember it's called home-field advantage. I also can stan...

Painfully is the only way I can describe their commentary. I was watching the game on Sopcast though the internet and everytime they opened their mouths i just cringed. I was explaining to my glf- a Leaves fan to boot, how crappy they were- and even she admitted that they have no clue what they are ...

With Mitchell he's kind of flown under the radar a bit due to his injury, but I love his steadying influence out there. He's a solid d-man and I'm itchin to see him in action during the playoffs! I still think the Canucks are better then their record indicates, especially with the huge turnover from...

I wonder if something happened during the game?. I'm interested in hearing his comments to his cheap hit.

I've seen the reply a few times and he should have never nailed briere in such a position, It seems like it could have be a brain cramp and he was just going for a hit.

Congrats to the Lions. I remember back in 2001 I was lucky enough to actually have a beer and take a few pictures of the Grey Cup when a media relations guy brought the Cup to my local pub in Richmond.

Luckily for me, we didn't break it!

Congrats to the Lions for a great season!!

I'll pass.....Jovo was always a high risk- high reward type player that can change a game, but I would still prefer Ohlund and even Salo, then Jovo. The biggest indicator of his worth was how there wasn't all that much hoopla over him leaving to Phoenix. With his huge contract, I highly doubt he'll ...

Sorry for the delayed update....had a long night with Japanese sake...... As expected, alot of the trades are from the eastern conference. Forgot about the babych trade. It would be neat to find out if the Cancuks traded any draft picks away who turned out to be studs. As for the expansion teams, ha...

For St.Louis, it's got to be trading Geoff Courtnall, Robert Dirk, Sergio Momesso, Cliff Ronning and 5th round selection (Brian Loney) in 1992 to the Vancouver Canucks for Dan Quinn and Garth Butcher. Without that trade, 94 would not have happened. Does anyone also know what we got for Lumme, I reme...

Pittsburg - Naslund for Alek Stojanov and Boston - June 1986 trade sent Neely and Vancouver's first round draft pick in 1987 to Boston for Barry Pederson. I can't think if a trade that was as significant as the Pittsburgh trade for the present day nucks. And we all know the pain of trading a bc boy...

Canucks Trade History Challenge

Sitting at my desk at work right now...pretty bored with nothing to do and the forums seemed to have dried up due to her current skid-so I was pondering this one question. What I am wondering is, what is the biggest trade the Canucks have made with each of the 30 NHL teams. Some of the newer teams I...
