By now, you’ve certainly heard more than enough about the Inaugural Canucks Scrabble Battle. If you recall: a couple weeks back, Tanner Glass and PITB came together for an epic charity Scrabble contest. It was great. The most important thing, of course, is that the event raised $9000 for Canuck Place. The second most important [...]

Dan Hamhuis’s overtime winner was pure wizardous sedinerie. Rejoice, Canucks fans! Last game wasn’t just a triumph, it was a return to form, or at least, something close to it. While the Canucks can say their Nashville game was one of their best, I respectfully disagree — the Canucks aren’t at their best playing tight-checking [...]

Video from outside Staples Center after the Kings game. Looks like a lot of fun. Fun is good. Wow, it was exhilarating to go to the Ducks game. I met Daniel and Harrison, and their wives, and that was pretty amazing. We were also surrounded by Canucks fans. Living in California, I only see the [...]

I Find This Video Odd: Ryan Kesler, Topless Pizza Delivery Guy

Here is a video from Canucks.com of Raffi Torres doing a postgame interview with Kristin Reid. It’s not interesting. For about twelve seconds, that is. And then, a shirtless Ryan Kesler emerges from behind a curtain, chowing down on some za, altogether too pleased with his lingering, nippletastic, pizza-devouring self. First, he just peers. Then he creeps. He gets progressively closer and closer to Raffi as the video goes on. I imagine he’s humming the theme from Jaws the whole time.

And then, after standing directly behind Torres for a full minute, he offers Raffi some pizza. Raffi curtly says “No thanks”, and half-naked Kesler disappears from the frame.

Canucks 3 – 0 Ducks After the highly contentious atmosphere in the Staples Center last night, the Honda Center was downright pleasant. It’s not just that the Anaheim fans are generally more congenial (one woman gave us free hot dogs), but the building itself is a little nicer, a little more organic. Whereas the Staples [...]

I Watched This Game: Canucks at Kings, March 5, 2011

After spending about twenty hours in the Nissan Versa, bickering about music selection, coining new swear words, and fighting off an invisible army of cramps, well, it was some sort of glorious reprieve to finally get to the hockey portion of the road trip. Not that there weren’t highlights en route. For example: Bonnie Tyler’s Faster Than [...]

Every year, the pundits analyze the winners and losers of the NHL trade deadline, reflecting on the moves made and pointing to organizations that got stronger or weaker, as a result. This convention is valuable, to an extent, but it ignores the smaller effects these trades have on individual dressing rooms. Here in Vancouver, for [...]

As you may know, PITB is making the California road trip this year, but we’d hate to leave you with nothing new to peruse in our absence. With that in mind, we’d like to welcome to round three of the Raffi Torres bowling ball photoshop gallery. If you’re new to this series, I recommend starting [...]

Canucks 0 – 3 Predators The Canucks didn’t score, so I used this video from a year ago. With Daniel and Harrison out on a road trip in Oregon, enjoying the thrill of having your gas pumped by someone else, it fell to me to cover this game. Like anyone swapping footwear with Sideshow Bob, [...]

When Arsenal lost the League Cup Final to Birmingham last Sunday it began to look as though their hopes of a successful season were beginning to fade. Injuries were piling up, they had a tough game against Barcelona on the horizon and Manchester United were four points clear at the top of the table. The [...]

So with the trading deadline come and gone, the Canucks can now proceed with the rest of their record breaking season, a campaign that has them on pace for unprecedented regular season success. There is the opportunity to guarantee home ice advantage for not just the first round, but quite plausibly the entire playoffs. Some [...]

Back in January, we posted our second annual Canucks Bandwagon Fan Cheat Sheet, a guide to all of the players on the Vancouver Canucks for the recently baptized Canucks fan. It was an excellent introduction to the team for wives of diehard fans, Vancouverites who just noticed that the Canucks are at the top of [...]

Are you going on the Canucks’ California road trip? We are! We’re looking forward to it too, namely because that many consecutive hockey games simply guarantees that we’ll see our fair share of Jersey Fouls. With that in mind, we’ve created the PITB Jersey Foul Bingo Card, so as to double the joy we derive [...]

Canucks 2 – 1 Blue Jackets (SO) It’s a shame that the Canucks weren’t wearing their retro jerseys, because this game was a total throwback. The team played poorly, showing a complete lack of offensive flair and a general disarray throughout, but thankfully, Roberto Luongo stood tall and singlehandedly kept them in the game. You’d [...]

Some have voiced concern over Maxim Lapierre’s potential effect on the dressing room. He’ll be fine. By now, you’re probably aware of deadline acquisitions Chris Higgins and Maxim Lapierre, the two forwards the Canucks picked up at yesterday’s trade deadline (and also: MacGregor “NC” Sharp, where the NC stands for “Nobody Cares” but, true to [...]

Back on June 25th, at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, the Canucks traded away Michael Grabner, Steve Bernier, and their 1st round pick to the Florida Panthers for defenseman Keith Ballard and forward Victor Oreskovich. The Panthers turned that first round pick into Quinton Howden, waived Grabner out of training camp, then waived Bernier recently [...]
