With today being Labour Day, the Canucks are set to start training camp for their new season later this week.
Except it’s 2020, and the team just dispersed from the ending of their season less than 72 hours ago.
There’s lots to be discussed following the conclusion of the Canucks successful season. Here’s a taste of that from around the hockey world.
- Keeping it with the latest from the Nucks Misconduct crew this morning. The ever-optimistic Westy talks about the many issues facing the Canucks this offseason. [Nucks Misconduct]
- Bailey Chambers looks back on the season and tells us the five things we’ve learned about these Canucks [Nucks Misconduct]
- Chris Tanev and Brandon Sutter talk about their pride in this team’s playoff push. Will either of them be around for the next one? [Sportsnet]
- TSN’s Farhan Lalji, a recent guests on Nucks Misconduct’s Power of the Towel, is just getting our hopes up with reports like these:
Lalji: There's some internal belief Canucks can move one of Sutter or Eriksson https://t.co/345cvywB7i— TSN Radio Vancouver (@TSN1040) September 7, 2020
Westy, you said it can’t be done...
- The real reason the Canucks were the 6th last team standing in the playoffs? Louis Domingue’s baking.
- Happy 50th birthday to this Canucks legend!
- Finally, a nice moment was shared on Twitter during the weekend.

Around the NHL
- Minnesota Wild defenceman was named the winner of the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, for his community efforts and efforts to help the NHL push forward the agenda for combating racism. [CBC]
- The plucky Dallas Stars stole Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals from the Vegas Golden Knights, 1-0. John Klingberg scored less than three minutes into the game, and that was all the Stars needed.
Marc-Andre Fleury got the start in net after getting just one start against the Canucks. He was clearly good, but the Golden Knights are definitely still having nightmares about Thatcher Demko.
- The New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning begin their series tonight at 5:00 pm PST. If you haven’t already, check out our prediction thread and leave you predictions in the comments.
