CCC – Clay’s Canucks Commentary for October 28, 2010: A Shot in the Arm & Ring of Honour

The Canucks have looked good this past week, picking up 5 out of a possible 6 points in their last 3 games. A large part of the team’s success is its secondary scoring, proving a much needed “shot in the arm” for the team.

Another shot in the arm will be the much-anticipated return of Alex Burrows. His return will have a trickle-down effect on the rest of the roster, and will undoubtedly make the team stronger.

I also include footage of the first Ring of Honour honouree: Orland Kuterbach – the Canucks’ very first captain.

CCC – Clay’s Canucks Commentary for October 18, 2010: Line Juggling & All-Time Canucks Lines

Coach Alain Vigneault mixed up the lines for Vancouver’s game against Carolina this past Sunday and it seemed to work: the Canucks beat the Hurricanes 5-1.

In the game, 10 different Canucks registered at least a point, including the first goal of the season for Kesler, Raymond, Samuelsson, and Alberts.

In this CCC, I offer up a few different alternatives to the lines, including arranging them by age, weight and birthplace. The results are quite interesting! For fun, I also list my “All-Time Canucks lines.” See if you agree or (likely) disagree!

CCC – Clay’s Canucks Commentary for October 11, 2010: Very Early Observations After 2 Games

 

The 2010-11 NHL season has started, and the Canucks have 3 points after 2 close games. This CCC is broken up into 2 parts.

In the first part, I offer a few quick observations from the first 2 games, including extrapolating the early stats over a full 82-game season. I also preach patience, perspective, and prudence as we settle in for a long season.

The 2nd half features 2 guest hosts: Pat Teodosio and my son Sean. As I wasn’t able to attend nor watch the season opener against the LA Kings (I was at a wedding reception), Pat and Sean took over the CCC for a night and offered their insights and observations.

Looking forward to going to my first game of the regular this season on Sunday…and looking forward to getting footage for my next CCC!

CCC – Clay’s Canucks Commentary for October 3, 2010: Season Ticket Holder Appreciation

For the 2nd CCC of the season, I take you inside Rogers Arena for the annual Season Ticket Holder Appreciation Event (held just before the Open Practice). My special guest in this video is my buddy Mike, a long-time season ticket holder. I’m his season ticket “partner” for this season only.

We got a lot done in 2 hours:
-we enjoyed a continental breakfast
-we viewed some of the NHL awards and made our own predictions for this season
-we witnessed the introduction of the 2010-11 Vancouver Canucks
-we got autographs from Luongo, Bolduc, Glass, and Tambellini
-I slapped hands (fins?) with Fin and rammed myself into the glass to check out the strength of the boards

All in all, it was an enjoyable morning as we look forward to the start of the season next weekend!
