John Tortorella: "I Deserved To Get Fired"

John Tortorella lasted just one season in Vancouver—a disastrous tailspin of a season so increasingly toxic, there's now not a single person on earth willing to deny that he had to go.

Canucks Owner Texts Reporter: "You Are A Prick"

The thing about the germinating disaster in Vancouver is that it shouldn't even be a big deal. The Canucks will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2008, and that's OK—it's the natural cycle of hockey that a team can't be good forever. The Canucks still have talent, they have money to spend, and if things will… » 4/09/14 1:43pm 4/09/14 1:43pm

There's No Meltdown Quite Like A Canucks Meltdown

I know it's hard to conceive of, but there will come a point when you actually feel sorry for Canucks fans.

In Dallas, They Throw Cowboys Hats Onto The Ice

Tyler Seguin's ice-girl-delighting hat trick against a demoralized Canucks team couldn't have been more Texas. Among the hats to fly was one big, black cowboy hat—briefly modeled by linesman Derek Amell: » 3/07/14 9:59am 3/07/14 9:59am

Canucks Finally Trade Roberto Luongo, Prepare To Blow Everything Up

The NHL trade deadline isn't until 3:00 EST tomorrow, and today has already been fantastic. From the nonexistent to the impactful to the hilarious to the Bryzgalov, each deal has been more fun than the last. Now Roberto Luongo is heading back to Florida, this time to hang out with his old buddy Tim Thomas, and I am… » 3/04/14 5:06pm 3/04/14 5:06pm

Officials Sent The Wrong Sedin Twin To The Penalty Box

It's hard to blame the officials for occasionally losing track of things during last night's punchy 1-0 Kings win over Vancouver, a game that saw 109 total penalty minutes. It's extra-hard to blame them for penalizing Henrik Sedin for an infraction committed by Daniel Sedin—they look alike, and all. » 1/14/14 2:10pm 1/14/14 2:10pm
