Rangers’ Chris Kreider explains how he’s getting out of rut

nypost.com - Dec 9, 2015

VANCOUVER — Suddenly, just like that, Chris Kreider was skating with speed and with authority, transporting the puck, going to the front, setting up as a net presence, and playing the style of straight-line, power hockey that informs his game. That was Sunday night in the Rangers’ meat-and-potatoes 4-1 victory over the Senators at the...

Alain Vigneault 2 games away from big milestone, but that’s not what drives him

nypost.com - Dec 9, 2015

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Alain Vigneault is two games away from becoming the 22nd coach in NHL history to achieve the 1,000-game milestone, a club that’s an exclusive one, indeed. But there is another, even more exclusive club of which Vigneault is already a member, but this is one he is looking to bust out...

alain vigneault "Losing the Stanley Cup final is the hardest thing to go through in this business, When you’re that close, you want to go back. Hopefully the next time is the time."
alain vigneault "I’m not about gimmicks. How I approach the game, I think players have a responsibility and I hold them accountable. With experience, I’ve recognized situations where it’s better to step back and give players more space."

Iain MacIntyre: Coach’s win total speaks volumes

vancouversun.com - Dec 9, 2015

Like all great tenors, his voice has aged beautifully. Though limited in range, it remains keen and rich, on tone and distinct. It could fill The Met in New York, but fills Madison Square Garden instead. It could fill most of the Eastern seaboard. Alain Vigneault still has his chops. For coaching, too.

Tanner Glass "He’s exactly the same, You can hear him. He yells the same things: ‘Speed! Change! Deep!’ You can’t help but hear him. I watched him on TV when he was in Vancouver and I was in Winnipeg, and I could hear him through the TV."
alain vigneault "It’s a lot of games, It’s very humbling. I mean, this is a tough business to get into. There are not a lot of jobs. In my case, a tough business to get back into. If you get to that number, it’s because you’ve had great players to coach and you’ve obviously had some great assistants … and support of management and ownership. I had that in my time in Vancouver, and I have definitely that in my time in New York."

Willes: Perspective has come with age for Todd Bertuzzi

theprovince.com - Dec 8, 2015

In his rookie season with the New York Islanders, Todd Bertuzzi would often catch a ride to practice with Isles veteran Derek King. King was then in his 10th season on Long Island, and standing on the 16th tee of his pro career. Like Bertuzzi, King had been a first-round draft pick and tabbed as a future star. Unlike Bertuzzi, he had a sense of perspective about the game and its fleeting nature, a

Vrbata scores 3 as Canucks beat Sabres to snap 5-game skid

washingtontimes.com - Dec 8, 2015

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Pulsating postgame music in the home dressing room at Rogers Arena has been far from the norm this season. For one night at least, the Vancouver Canucks could relax. Radim Vrbata scored three goals for his sixth career hat trick and Vancouver beat the Buffalo ...

Radim Vrbata "We were looking for a good performance for a win and to feel a little better about ourselves, Even though it’s just one game, it’s a good start."
Henrik Sedin "It’s a good feeling for sure coming in here and seeing a lot of smiles on guys that haven’t been scoring, Hopefully we can build on this one."

Canucks Post Game: Hats off to Vrbata, Bertuzzi helps remove Prust rust, Miller likes the view

blogs.theprovince.com - Dec 8, 2015

Points to ponder after the Canucks ended a five-game losing streak Monday as Radim Vrbata found his scoring touch with his sixth career hat-trick, Brandon Prust got a good-luck stick touch from Todd Bertuzzi to score his first goal in 50 games and Ryan Miller finally got to stick it to his old club:

Radim Vrbata "The simpler we play, the better we play, If we know where the puck is going, we can have people there and the energy to create something offensively. We did that tonight."
Brandon Prust "We played together my first year in Calgary and Bert was one of my favourites — I looked up to him when I was growing up, And when I started playing with him, I kind of latched on to him whether he liked it or not. And as they (West Coast Express) were coming off the ice tonight, I said: ‘Bert, give me a little love here.’ He grabbed my stick."

Willes: Canucks play with pace and purpose to beat Sabres

theprovince.com - Dec 8, 2015

Before the parade committee calls for a meeting, it should be pointed out that an early-December home-ice victory over the Buffalo Sabres isn't exactly the strictest standard for success in the NHL. But, when you're 0-for-the month and you have three W's to show for your last 16 games, you don't spend a lot of time picking apart the wins.

Vrbata notches hat trick as Canucks snap streak with win over Sabres

vancouversun.com - Dec 8, 2015

As noted philosopher Todd Bertuzzi once said, -- actually, more than once -- it is what it is.

Radim Vrbata "We needed it, We were looking for a good performance, for a win, and to start feeling a little better about ourselves. And even though it was just one game, it’s a good start."
Radim Vrbata "That always helps on your first or second shift if you get an open net like that, And then you get a tip there and it seems like everything is falling in place."

Todd Bertuzzi smiled. And anyone who saw it at Monday’s press conference smiled, too, because it was something no one witnessed during Bertuzzi’s 7½ seasons with the Vancouver Canucks. This was not the cocky smirk through broken teeth or menacing grin Bertuzzi displayed for the media as a player in Vancouver, where he wore a surly disguise so naturally and for so long he eventuall

Canucks seek swagger to dump the growing slump

vancouversun.com - Dec 6, 2015

Unfortunately, Markus Naslund, Todd Bertuzzi and Brendan Morrison will only be dropping the puck, not shooting it. The Vancouver Canucks could certainly use a little West Coast Express magic right about now.

Ryan Miller "I think we are looking for something to go right before it gets going, Not to be too cliche, but sometimes you’ve got to get it going for things to go right. There are a lot of things in all areas that we have to be better at."

Canucks’ West Coast Express line put Sedins on right track

vancouversun.com - Dec 6, 2015

Markus Naslund, Todd Bertuzzi and Brendan Morrison did more than pile up points as the West Coast Express, three Vancouver Canucks who for a time may have been the best line in hockey.

Daniel Sedin "They played the game with so much confidence, That is something I still remember. They didn’t let a bad game affect them. They came back in the next game and they wanted to dominate games. That is the mindset you have to have to be successful, and that’s what me and Henrik try to do every game, try to go out there and be the best player out there."
Daniel Sedin "He was awesome to me and Hank, We never had any problems with him. He stuck up for us when we had tough times, and Mo (Morrison) was so caring and a nice guy and I think we all know what kind of guy Nazzy was. All three were good to us."

Prust: $5,000 fine for Marchand spear ‘the best money I ever spent’

theprovince.com - Dec 6, 2015

Brandon Prust’s frankness is one of the few things in working order for the Vancouver Canucks right now. Prust tagged the $5,000 fine he received from the NHL head office on Sunday for his spear to the nether regions of Boston Bruins pest Brad Marchand on Saturday as “the best money I ever spent.”

Ryan Miller "there are a lot of things in all areas that we need to be better on."

Sometimes, sorry is the hardest word to say, so Brandon Prust didn’t even bother trying. The Canucks’ winger was making no apologies Sunday after the NHL fined him $5,000 for his spear to the groin of Boston forward Brad Marchand late in Vancouver’s 4-0 loss to the Bruins on Saturday night.

Brandon Prust "Best money I ever spent,"
Brandon Prust "I kind of thought that’s what would happen. It wasn’t that hard and he sold it pretty good. I saw him laughing on the bench later. I don’t think he’s too hurt."

Not only did they appear woefully short on talent vs. the B’s, only

6 Things: West Coast Express

canucks.nhl.com - Dec 6, 2015

Reunited and it feels so good. For one night and one night only, Markus Naslund, Todd Bertuzzi and Brendan Morrison – the entirety of the most famous line in Canucks history – will be together again in celebration of the West Coast Express. ...

Todd Bertuzzi "It was something special playing with those two, and I owe a lot to them, Obviously I wouldn’t have been the player I was and gotten those points without those two. It was fun hockey back then, we played a pretty exciting brand; the brand we brought to the city and the style of play we had, it was entertaining for everyone and it led to all the sellouts and all that, people wanted to watch. I think overall in the hockey world, we were one of the most watched teams because of our style. It’s all good memories that I remember."
