Canucks News & Rumors: Benning, Biega, Pettersson & Bure

It’s a difficult part of the season for the Vancouver Canucks, one way or another. The team has all but been eliminated from the playoffs, yet they went into Dallas and Chicago took two overtime wins from the Stars (in a shootout) and the Blackhawks (when Bo Horvat scored 16 seconds into overtime). Most fans might suggest that it’s a time when the Canucks should be losing, but this is a team that seems to win when it should be losing and loses when it should be winning. There is a slight cha...

These are the 1st-round NHL playoff matchups we want to see

The thing about the Stanley Cup playoffs is the first round usually produces the most compelling hockey.Maybe it's because that after a long six-month-plus, drawn-out regular season the players, coaches and fanatics can't wait for the level of hockey to increase a few more degrees.Or maybe it's because the first round has been a home to upsets. The Chicago Blackhawks were the West regular-season champs in 2016-17 and got bounced in a sweep by the eighth-seeded Nashville Predators....

Penguins Pulpit: Malkin, Kessel & Gudbranson

Rangers Are This Season’s Unluckiest Team

The New York Rangers have had a season like no other in the team’s recent history. As a club that used to be a perennial Stanley Cup contender, the Rangers are used to getting good breaks and lucky rewards. That is seemingly the nature of the playoffs. One bounce here and one tip there, the team that takes advantage of the lucky breaks usually wins. But now the Rangers are experiencing the other side, the unlucky one. They’re a team that puts forth a plentiful amount of effort night in and night...

Rangers’ Inconsistency Wearing Thin on Quinn

When head coach David Quinn sleeps these days, is it possible that he dreams of a hockey team that consists of Brendan Lemieux at every position other than goaltender? If such a crazy scenario ever filled the head of the New York Rangers coach at night, it would be understandable. And it seems likely that such a theoretical dream would have occurred in the last couple of weeks. As seamlessly as Quinn has adjusted to the NHL game following a career in the college ranks, there are undoubtedly elem...

Ed Willes: Canucks' 'fearless' blue-liners offer sporadic leadership between injuries

Alex Edler and Chris Tanev providing a steadying influence for the Canucks' younger D-men sounds good on paper, but it's difficult to provide that steadying influence when your presence in the lineup is sporadic. After watching Chris Tanev carried out on his shield yet again, the question for the Vancouver Canucks isn't about the defenceman's value to the team or the respect he's earned in the locker room. No, following the 3-2 shootout loss to New Jersey on Friday night...

Rangers’ Buchnevich Showing His Best Is yet to Come

The New York Rangers organization is no stranger to drafting players who end up fizzling out. There have been several occasions on which the Rangers drafted a player with the expectation that he’d be the next great player to shine under the lights of Madison Square Garden. At the start of the current decade, the Rangers drafted defenseman Dylan McIlrath hoping he’d become the next Dustin Byfuglien. He only played 36 games for the Rangers, fragmented over three seasons, scoring just four points w...

According to College Hockey News, several NHL teams, including the Boston Bruins, were interested in Duszak.

Currently, the Vancouver Canucks are skating towards a post-season without playoffs. However, after the team’s loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday night, the Hockey Night in Canada panel lauded the team’s future potential – just not this season. Really, no one predicted a strong season for the Canucks. It was to be a rebuilding season, but two primary surprises lifted the Canucks in the standings, and in their fans, hope for a stronger future. The first surprise was Elias Pettersson. He...

If he exceeds 10 games, he would be a third-year player by 2021 and need to be included on the protected list. That’s the boiler-plate stuff. What everyone is anxious to see is the on-ice stuff.
