The Vancouver Canucks’ hockey season is about a quarter of the way through and that means it is the perfect time to do player reviews. It has often been said that the twenty game mark is when General Managers and coaches begin looking at the roster for possible moves and improvements. For bloggers, like myself, it is no different. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be working my way through the Canucks roster giving a review for each player. Next up is Henrik Sedin.
I’ve got to give Henrik a lot of credit. He has been the better Sedin as of late and he really isn’t showing signs of slowing down. With 7 goals in 20 games to go along with 22 points and a +6 rat...
The Islanders fell by a score of 4 – 1 to the Vancouver Canucks at Rodgers Arena. Despite patches of outplaying their opponents, the Islanders were simply outmatched by last season’s Western Conference champions.
Once again, the Islanders let up a goal on the first shot against them, courtesy of Aaron Rome (3 points), just two minutes in to the game. The rest of the first period was a gutty effort by the Islanders, who killed off a penalty to finish the frame, which saw no other goals in the period.

The Philadelphia Flyers are off to a fast start winning their first two games of the season. Look for the Flyers to come out revved up and ready to go tonight when they face the Vancouver Canucks in their home opener at 7:30 PM EST.
Both the mornings and evenings have begun to get cooler, and with that slight change in tempearture, hockey seems to be getting closer and closer to returning. The back half of August is upon us, and maybe the Toronto Maple Leafs’ most important player for both this and future seasons remains unsigned.
Luke Schenn has developed into a cornerstone member of the Leafs. He is valuable on the ice, having led the league in hits by a defenceman last season with 251. As well as off the ice, being the longest serving Leaf (along with Kulemin and Grabovski) a strong character like Schenn’s is necessary in one of the youngest dressing rooms ...
