So much for Marty Reasoner, Maxim Lapierre does just fine, thank you very much. Am I with everyone else in thinking these are great moves for the Canucks? Here’s the way I see it:   Maxim Lapierre  -59 GP, 5 G, 6 A, 11 PTS, -13, 72 PIM -Turns 26 years-old March 29. -Is an [...]

In last minute trading deadline deals, the Canucks added two experienced forwards that will add depth to their forward ranks. Chris Higgins, who has bounced around the league the last few seasons (including getting bounced by Canucks D-man Keith Ballard in the accompanying photo), has scored 20 goals or more three times – no small feat.  And [...]

The annual Canucks Superskills event is a treat for Canucks fans, especially for fans who can’t afford the price of admission to a regular game. The cheaper ticket price, combined with the fun atmosphere and events on the concourse, make it a great chance for parents to give their kids a closer look at their [...]

I’m sure you’re getting a little tired of Canucks Scrabble coverage, but we’ve had requests for the Subway bio clip featuring Tanner Glass. With that, (and thanks again to the remarkably generous CanucksHD), here’s last Saturday’s Hockey Night Subway bio, featuring Tanner Glass, PITB, and a brief return to the Canucks’ Scrabble challenge. As you [...]

It’s a stressful time right now. The NHL trade deadline is under five hours away. Fans and players alike want to know that Mike Gillis will do. Who’s on the way in? Who’s on the way out? Will we get better? Will we lose ground? Will they trade for a top-six winger? Will they trade [...]

Well, of course, anything is possible.  And with the Bruins’ recent forays into the trading market, they have certainly elevated their status to front of the class in the Eastern Conference in the minds of many.  And the Canucks, who are standing pat for the moment at least, still hold onto the top seed in [...]

Before Sunday’s Carling Cup Final Arsene Wenger (left) had said that he thought that it was possible for his Arsenal side to win four trophies this season. Make that three, because the Gunners were beaten 2-1 by Birmingham City thanks to a late goal from Obafemi Martins. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. This [...]

Canucks 1 – 3 Bruins Last night’s tough loss to the Boston Bruins keeps the Canucks mired in their pattern of alternating wins and losses, a pattern that’s now persisted for 10 games. That said, you have to think last night’s loss was different–that is was the toughest of the most recent five. Tied at [...]

Here’s Ryan “Astro Boy” Kesler on After Hours. As usual, the segment’s a must-watch, and you have to admire Scott Oake’s skill as an interviewer to make it so. Kesler’s not an easy interview. He’s a surly guy that punches questions, and ends sentences abruptly. There’s simply no avoiding dead air when he’s the guest. [...]

If Gillis’s first name was Jack, and he made all the best trades, the headline could be, “Jack of All Trades.” The Vancouver Canucks have been one of the NHL’s best teams for most of the season and, barring a major collapse, will go into the playoffs as a Stanley Cup frontrunner. They’ve never been [...]

Welcome once again to the Raffi Torres BallTor photoshop gallery. If you’re new to this, I recommend starting either with the original photo, or with the first photoshop gallery, posted yesterday. Otherwise, let’s just dive headfirst into the awesome: I think this image is real. I hardly have to suspend my disbelief at all. If [...]

Canucks 3 – 2 Blues I feel like we’ve been spouting this statistic a lot lately, but the Canucks still haven’t lost two consecutive regulation games since November. I used to be impressed; now I’m just annoyed. I mean, they keep alternating wins and losses, forcing me to point to this statistic every second game. [...]

If you’re an MMA fan, not only do you know who Bas Rutten is, but you also know he’s all sorts of awesome. Rutten, the former King of Pancrase and a former UFC champion, brought superstar flava to mixed martial arts before anyone knew it was even a sport, with a brash pro-wrestling interview style [...]

After a demotion to the farm team to play six games in nine days, prospect number one Cody Hodgson returned to the big club in time for the last game (a tough home ice loss to the fabled and desperate Montreal Canadiens).  And at the end of it all, he had under five minutes of [...]

You might recall the Raffi Torres bowling ball image (BallTor) from the minor photoshop party we tried to jumpstart last week. It comes from this goal, Raffi’s second of the night in a 5-2 win over the Dallas Stars. The goal led to this photo, which is wonderful for many, many reasons, chief amongst them [...]

Here is a list of players I think could benefit the Canucks (some more than others) going into the playoffs. The Canucks have about $1 million to spend on a player and it would be reasonable to give up a mid-round draft pick and/or a journeyman prospect (such as a Bolduc, L.Sweatt, Oreskovich) for most [...]

What an incredible experience. Our thanks goes out to Tanner Glass, Derek Jory, Canuck Place, Hasbro Canada, Annie May, and the Canucks organization for helping to make this all happen. Harrison and I are amazed at how our silly little Scrabble challenge turned into an opportunity to raise an estimated $8000 for Canuck Place. We [...]

Quick Hits (From Behind) is an irregular feature on Pass it To Bulis, wherein two hockey fans chip in their thoughts on current hockey news and get assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct. With the inaugural Scrabble Battle now in the books, and the surreal fog of yesterday’s visit to Canuck Place now [...]

Now that the first round of Champions League ties have been played what have we learned? 1) Italian football is in trouble- with all three Italian teams losing at home it is likely that no team from Italy will make it to the next round. Which means that they will almost certainly lose a Champions [...]

You, Brad Ziemer. You’re the one I hate. I hate you. Alain Vigneault is a coach who really knows how to use the media, not to garner attention, like Ron Wilson, but to make his team better. Some of us even go so far as to point out when he does it. Still, while Vigneault [...]

AV is all about limiting fourth line opportunities in the next two games if last nights game was any indication. Is management and the coaching staff working together or against each [...]

Welcome to the Inaugural Scrabble Battle Live Blog Extravaganza, the ultimate Scrabble showdown between Vancouver Canucks’ winger Tanner Glass and PITB co-founder Harrison Mooney. By now, you probably know that the game is for charity, with all proceeds benefitting the Canucks For Kids Fund. It’s not too late to donate. I’m your host, Daniel “Skeeter” [...]

Canucks 2 – 3 Canadiens Not sure why, but the Canadiens started this game like they had embarrassed themselves on national television in their previous outing. Frankly, they skated like it was their first time on indoor ice in days, shooting like they hadn’t scored a goal in over sixty minutes, and playing like above [...]
