Vancouver Canucks Need to Offer Sheet Anthony Cirelli
Depth wins championships. Look no further than the 2019 St. Louis Blues, the 2018 Washington Capitals, the 2017 Pittsburgh Penguins…the most recent Stanley Cup champions all have strong players up and down their rosters.

Canucks Have a Playoff Black Ace in Loui Eriksson
Loui Eriksson has been a lightning rod for criticism since he signed with the Vancouver Canucks in July 2016. When the now-35-year-old Swedish winger signed his six-year, $36 million contract with the Canucks, it was expected he would slot in seamlessly with Daniel and Henrik Sedin to add more scoring punch and a two-way presence. […]

Canucks Can Take Advantage of the Buffalo Sabres
Making smart, value trades and signings are what separates perennial Stanley Cup contenders from the pretenders.

Except for the JT Miller trade, it’s often the smaller, less flashy deals that push a team to the next level, […]

Pick One Canuck: Elias Pettersson or Quinn Hughes
The timeless question of how to build the perfect hockey team has never truly been answered. Everyone, from general managers to the average fan, seems to have a different opinion on how their team should be built. Some teams try and build from the back out, prioritizing goaltending and defence. There are people who believe […]
Canucks’ Best & Worst Trades All-Time
The Vancouver Canucks have a long history of franchise-altering transactions. Through their history, team management has never been shy about pulling the trigger on the big deal. It seems every year the Canucks make at least one major transaction that sets the entire hockey world abuzz. While Vancouver may not be shy in making a […]
Canucks’ Josh Levio Is a Key Cog for the Future
The Vancouver Canucks have had their share of unsung heroes throughout history. From Jannik Hansen to Alex Burrows to Derek Dorsett, it’s often complementary players who have a major impact.

3 Steps to Bolster the Canucks Blue Line Next Season

Canucks’ Goaltending Options for Next Season
It probably isn’t bold to say Vancouver Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom has been the team’s best player this season. With all due respect to Elias Pettersson, Quinn Hughes, and J.T. Miller, it’s been Markstrom who has, at times, carried this team to victories. When he went down with injury, his absence was felt immediately. The […]
Canucks’ Forward Depth Waiting in the Wings
The struggle for consistent scoring outside of the first line has long-plagued the Vancouver Canucks. Elias Pettersson, Brock Boeser, and J.T. Miller have been consistently excellent. Captain Bo Horvat is another solid contributor, but he’s been a streaky 5-on-5 scorer. Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson have finally provided some much-needed stability to the top-six forward […]
Canucks Benefiting From Jake Virtanen’s Development
Jake Virtanen picked the perfect time for a career season. With his Vancouver Canucks in the thick of a Western Conference playoff race, Virtanen has set new career highs in goals, assists, and points.

Canucks’ Tyler Toffoli Linemate Options
When the Vancouver Canucks acquired JT Miller at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, it seemed clear that general manager Jim Benning signaled to the rest of the league they were all-in; it was playoffs or bust for this group in the 2019-20 season.
