"Here's an apple and a roadmap kid....."

Having had a dismal start to the season thus far, the Vancouver Canucks need a move or two to shake themselves from their stupor almost as much as Jake Virtanen clearly needs a fresh start for another team and another coach.
We need to talk about Brock Boeser's body

We need to talk about Brock Boeser's body

We need to talk about Brock Boeser's body. But it's not what you think!


Last season, Boeser scored just 16 goals. It’s not that he had a bad season exactly — he was still a first-line forward on one of the best lines in the NHL — but it was a far cry from the buzz he created as a rookie.


That Brock Boeser looked like he could score 40+ goals in a season. That Brock Boeser looked like a future threat to win the Rocket Richard as the NHL’s leading goalscorer. That Brock Boeser was starting to seem like a distant memory.


A few weeks into the 2020-21 season, that Brock Boeser appears to be back.


After a two-goal performance on Saturday, Boeser jumped into the…

Adam Gaudette and Tyler Motte fight at Canucks training camp scrimmage

The Vancouver Canucks' second scrimmage of their training camp was a lot more spirited than the first. It seems clear that everyone on the team is well aware that the season starts in just a few days and the battles were a little more fierce. The game itself ended 1-1 in regulation, as goaltenders Thatcher Demko and Braden Holtby were also a little more locked-in.


The spirited affair got a little too spirited at one point, as two teammates dropped the gloves and did a little knuckle-chucking in the third period.


Tyler Motte and Adam Gaudette were chasing down a loose puck when Motte wrapped up Gaudette with his stick and hauled him dangerously to the ice. It was arguably a slewfoot, one of the more d…

The Canucks' clock is running down on Micheal Ferland

"For right now, we are just hoping he feels better so he can continue on with his life and then we will see where it gets to if he is able to play again or not.” — GM Jim Benning on Micheal Ferland


The Vancouver Canucks have a cohort of players going through quarantine.


Others were already in town, either because they live here or because they wanted to get through their required quarantine — be it the government-required 14 days for international travellers or a shorter league-mandated period for players arriving from elsewhere in Canada — sooner rather than later.


A few are still to arrive from other parts of Canada.

Todd Bertuzzi suggests he'll move back to Vancouver if Joe Biden wins the U.S. Presidential Election

Times are tense in the United States of America. It's election day and Americans are lining up at polling stations to cast their vote for who they want to be President for the next four years. A Presidential election is always an uneasy time, but the current election has been particularly divisive. That's why, when former-Canuck Todd Bertuzzi made his regular appearance on Sportsnet 650's morning show, the Starting Lineup, hosts James Cybulski and Perry Solkowski asked Bertuzzi about his experience of the current situation as a Canadian living in the U.S. "I tell you, it's interesting times, especially for a Canadian living here," said Bertuzzi. "I've been here for, I don't know, about 15 years, 20 years total, and I've never seen…
