I know, the game between the Vancouver Canucks and the Los Angeles Kings last night was just an every day game. It doesn’t mean much in the long run, but to me it was a small bit of redemption.
As much as I know it’s probably wrong to feel this… Continue reading
What a wonderfully amazing day to watch hockey.
Both of the teams we routinely support played today – the Toronto Maple Leafs vs. the Montreal Canadiennes and the Vancouver Canucks vs. the Calgary Flames – and they both won, and by a substantial margin I might add.
It’s been a… Continue reading
It’s so nice to watch the Sedin brothers playing together again. As the one commentator so aptly put it, “Henrik’s had no one to play with”.
Right now, it’s the last 3 minutes of the final period and the Canucks are ahead 3-1 (know on wood). It’s been a treat… Continue reading
How Can Good Quality Hockey Happen When Everyone’s Too Busy Dealing With or Using Smack Talk and Nasty Tactics?
I watched Games #1, 2 and 3 of the playoff series between the Vancouver Canucks and The Los Angeles Kings and I’ve never been more disappointed.

I was disappointed to find that… Continue reading

The last thing anyone… Continue reading
During the ‘a-a-a-w, no hockey?’ summer season of baseball, my attention shifts from the Vancouver Canucks to the Toronto Blue Jays.
I have always loved to watch the Jays, in person and on television. This team has amazing players but my favorites include Jose Bautista,… Continue reading
Well, deep down I knew it was to good to be true – my hope that the Canucks would bring the Stanley Cup home.
But, I must say that I have been sick to my stomach several times throughout this series – and not because the Canucks were struggling at… Continue reading
It was so hard to watch tonight’s game #3 of the final series of the Stanley Cup. Both teams should be ashamed of themselves.
The cheap shots, ‘goon’ism, lip-smacking and outright fistfights were horrendous on both sides.
Whatever happened to professionalism and sportsmanship? What kind of lessons are being taught… Continue reading
