In this episode of Clay’s Canucks Commentary, I explore 5 reasons why the Canucks are still in the playoff hunt:

1. The West is bad
2. Home record
3. Secondary scoring
4. Solid goaltending
5. Decent defence

2014 Canucks Christmas Carols

Just in time for Christmas, Marie and I proudly present to you a special compilation of custom Canucks Christmas carols. Hear new takes on old classics like Hansen the Honey Badger (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer), Radim Vrbata (Feliz Navidad), Get it Bo! (Let it Snow!), This Christmas, and Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas.

We were absolutely thrilled to work with the Vancouver Canucks on this project and are extremely grateful for the opportunity and for their trust. Special shout out to Paul Albi (@AlbiJr) for all his hard work to make this happen.

Also, big thanks to Chris Golden (@lyteforce) and his silky smooth voice for being our host. He’s perfect for the part!

And it goes without saying that – as usual – the big star here is Marie (@mariehui). She can make anything sound good!

Check out our past Christmas Carols here:

One of the ways I express my love for the Vancouver Canucks is by composing songs about the team.  It started back in 2010 when I put together my first Canucks Christmas Carol and over the past three years I’ve written 10 songs that have combined for over 92,000 hits on YouTube.

For 2013, I put together 4 songs:

  • Season of Cup (Our Team, Our Way) – January; 9,300 views on YouTube
  • Under John Tortorella – June; 46,500 views on YouTube
  • Against All Odds (Luongo’s Lament) – October; 4,500 views on YouTube
  • Last Christmas – December; 3,600 views on YouTube

 

A few quick facts:

-the four videos total 64,000 views on YouTube
-they’ve been featured on CTV, Global TV, the Huffington Post, Beat 94.5, Team 1040, Vancity Buzz, Canucks.com, and more
Marie Hui was gracious enough to appear in all 4 videos, while Arielle Tuliao was in 3 of them.  I know where my views are coming from – no one wants to see a middle-aged guy playing the piano.

2013 Canucks Christmas Carol: Last Christmas

Marie, Clay, Joseph, Kevin, Pat G, Arielle, and Pat T
Marie, Clay, Joseph, Kevin, Pat G, Arielle, and Pat T

It’s that time of year again: time for our 4th annual Canucks Christmas Carol!

Our song this year is inspired by Wham!’s “Last Christmas”.  We lament the lockout of last Christmas and look at the most important elements of this year’s team:  Roberto Luongo, Ryan Kesler, the Sedins, and head coach John Tortorella.

This year I’m joined by Marie Hui, Arielle Tuliao, Joseph San Jose, Pat Guevara, Pat Teodosio, and our favourite foreign exchange student Kevin who somehow always finds his way to my place to be in these videos.  In fact, both Joseph and Kevin have been in all 4 Canucks Christmas Carols!

Speaking of which, you can watch the previous 3 Canucks Christmas Carols here.

Thanks for watching and Merry Christmas!
