Canucks Need to Stop Winning

As we approach the All-Star break, the Western Conference playoff race is a mess. By “mess,” I mean extremely tight and unpredictable, so perhaps “chaotic” is a better word. As of Jan. 21, just five points separate the first Wild Card team — right now the Dallas Stars — from the 13th-place St. Louis Blues. In that cluster of teams are the Vancouver Canucks with 52 points, which is just good enough to be inside the playoff picture. While their 23-21-6 record is ordinary, they are an impressive 12...

Canada blames US for Huawei CFO arrest backlash that left 2 citizens in Chinese prison and a 3rd on death row

Our family ski trip to Sasquatch Mountain Resort in British Columbia

Sasquatch Mountain Resort, British Columbia As part of our quest to visit every ski resort in British Columbia, our goal is to visit at least one new ski resort each winter. This season, we spent 5 nights at Sasquatch Mountain Resort over the holidays. If the name of this ski resort is not familiar, that’s because it’s new. Well, the name is new.

International Sweatpants Day travel

Travelers who pine for the days when air travel was a luxury that required passengers to dress up for the occasion have obviously never been on a long-haul flight in coach in a tight dress and nylons. The popularization of air travel may mean that we’ve lost gourmet dinners served on silver platters, amazing customer service, and a considerable amount of legroom, but it’s also brought us the wonderful coziness of sweatpants. To honor the joys of flying in comfortable, shapeless clothes, Cana...

Why Dennis Cholowski Was A Healthy Scratch In Vancouver

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press, Had the Detroit Red Wings been healthier, Dennis Cholowski would have been a healthy scratch sooner. That was the message from coach Jeff Blashill after Cholowski sat out Sunday’s matinee against the Vancouver Canucks, a spectator at Rogers Arena as the Wings lost, 3-2. “This isn’t a one-day decision,” Blashill said. “This has been coming for a while. Part of the learning process for any player is, at times, sitting. People talk abo...

Thatcher Demko The Star In Vancouver’s Win Over Buffalo

from Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet, A single credit short of a psychology degree, Thatcher Demko was told that he is still undefeated in the National Hockey League. The goalie-academic then pivoted in the Vancouver Canucks’ dressing room and touched the faux wood panelling behind him. “Knock on wood,” he said. “Hopefully I play a couple more.” Ah, so the psychologist, the man of the brain, is superstitious? “No, not anymore,” he said. “I was very superstitious in college.

Canada dismisses China's warning of repercussions over Huawei ban

Canada's government on Friday dismissed China's warning of repercussions if Ottawa banned Huawei Technologies Co Ltd [HWT.UL] from supplying equipment to 5G networks, saying it would not compromise on security. China's ambassador to Canada issued the threat on Thursday as relations between the two nations continued to deteriorate after a senior Huawei executive was arrested in Vancouver last month on a U.S. extradition warrant. China has also detained two Canadians.
