Hockeys1stlady I will never forget August 15th, 2011. I remember where I was, and what I was wearing when I found out that Canucks’ fan favourite Rick Rypien had passed away. He was just 27-years-old. It hit me especially hard when it was revealed that he took his own life. Since I was 10-years-old I have battled depression. I have really good days, and really bad ones too. I was so pleased when the Canucks’ organization announced the launch of www.Mindcheck.ca back in January. It’s a website designed to help youth and...read more
Hockeys1stlady I fell in love with the game for many reasons, and Nick Lidstrom is one of those.

Hockeys1stlady The rumours have been swirling over the last couple of weeks that Alain Vigneault would be staying put in Vancouver.

Some fans liking and even loving the idea of AV sticking around. Others, not so much. @KMaximick tweeted, “I’m one more Presidents’ Trophy win and playoff loss away from becoming a Ducks’ fan for life.” Yes, he has made some poor...read more
Hockeys1stlady Roberto Luongo spoke to the media in Vancouver Tuesday, possibly for the last time in a Canucks’ uniform. Luongo revealed he is willing to waive his no-trade clause, adding that he doesn’t want to be one of those selfish guys and wants to put the team first. Some people around the web seemed to be almost shocked to see or hear that Luongo once again handled himself, and the situation with class. If I were him, I would have flipped the room a couple of birds, and said, “See ya!” Say you lived under a rock, came out from...read more
