This article is brought to you by bet365! Filip Hronek was always going to get a massive raise. That much was never in doubt. The fact the Vancouver Canucks managed to keep the annual average value of the pending restricted free agent’s new eight-year contract to $7.25M is a win for the organization. Especially when early reports had Hronek and his camp eyeing a deal much closer to $8M per season. Players like Hronek are hard to come by and on top of all the things he does for the hockey club – produce points, log big minutes, play in all situations – the 26-year-old’s biggest benefit might be ..read more

What a difference one game can make. The Edmonton Oilers were dead in the water after a 4-3 loss at home in game three. The Florida Panthers took a commanding 3-0 series lead, and game four looked like just a formality. But the Oilers did what they have done best all season long: when their backs were against the wall, they came to play. Vancouver fans saw this firsthand after the Canucks took a 3-2 series lead; Edmonton handed the Canucks their lunch in game six. The Oilers did the same thing to the Panthers in game four, annihilating them 8-1, but Edmonton still has loads of work to do as th ..read more

Be sure to check out the latest NHL playoff odds with online sportsbook Betway. We are two weeks out from the Free Agent Frenzy of July 1, 2024, and most of the attention in Vancouver has rightly been allocated to those free agents that are either pending departures or potential arrivals. But there’s something else that happens on July 1, besides various players hitting free agencies. Those players entering the final year of their contract become eligible to sign an extension on that date, too. For the Canucks, this means a couple of players, but most prominently Brock Boeser.

The Canucks’ improvements need to come from roster building, not coaching: Canucks Conversation
Canucks Army
by Clarke Corsan
2d ago
On today’s episode of Canucks Conversation, David Quadrelli and Harman Dayal discussed some recent quotes from head coach Rick Tocchet and how the most noticeable changes to the on-ice product will come from lineup adjustments rather than coaching style changes. “I give our coaches a project to look at the top three rushing teams and see what they’re doing that we can learn from, without sacrificing our defensive game,” said Tocchet on an appearance on The Chirp podcast. “That’s what I mean by reinventing ourselves. Good coaches take a deep dive to figure out what can be improved.” The guys di ..read more

Welcome to Monday. Sure, the Stanley Cup Final is still going on, but more important in these parts is the fact the hockey world is now just two weeks away from the National Hockey League free agent window opening. That’s right, just 14 more sleeps now until the framework of the 2024-25 Vancouver Canucks roster will be in place. Sure, there will be a few tweaks between July 1st and opening night, but the point is we’re not far from knowing – and seeing – what management has up its sleeve in terms of building around the core that is already in place. To help pass the time, we offer up the Monda ..read more
