Early in the season, the Vancouver Canucks offence looks even more dreadful than the previous two seasons. It’s surprising to see the players not scoring, but even more concerning. After once again ranking near the bottom in scoring last season, the Vancouver Canucks went to work in addressing their offence. General manager Jim Benning brought […] Vancouver

It looks, sounds and feels all too familiar. As the Vancouver Canucks embark on a five-game road trip that opens Tuesday in Ottawa — following a four-game home stand in which they suffered two injuries, managed just three points and have at least four areas of concern — the red-hot Senators are among the litmus tests. The Sens swept their three-game Western Canada swing for the first time in franchise history Saturday with a 6-1 whipping of the Edmonton Oilers. They outscor

VANCOUVER — The best thing about so many empty seats Saturday at Rogers Arena is that there were fewer people to boo the Vancouver Canucks. The drawback for the Canucks is that they have little chance to fill those empty lower-bowl seats if they play like they did against the

The Vancouver Canucks scratched Jake Virtanen in the morning and things got worse from there. Virtually handed the game early with five first-period power plays, the Canucks rolled over instead. The Calgary Flames cruised to a 5-2 win that was littered with soft goaltending and nearly zero offensive push from the Canucks. Here’s what we learned: AT LEAST BROCK BOESER IS LIVING UP TO THE HYPE It was a game only a tanker could love. Jacob M
