Vancouver Canucks Appreciation Blog.

I thought I’d put this piece out there in response to a few blog posts and social media responses I’ve seen out there within the last 2 years.

When Trevor Linden and Jim Benning were first announced as the President and GM respectively the Vancouver Canucks fanbase was overjoyed and excited for all the changes that both men were promising , plus the fact that Mike Gillis was fired.  The second they go to make a change the fan base was all over them, Ryan Kesler was the one who wanted out of Vancouver and he wanted to go to Anaheim… sounds pretty difficult to me when you’re the GM coming into a new organization and you’re handcuffed like that with such a low value on the player because of his demands.

The fans slowly got over that and started trying to push Eddie Lack into the permanent starting role over Ryan Miller when he went down to injury. Although Eddie did play well down the stretch, but in my opinion he hasnt proven he can carry a team as he struggled a lot in the playoff series against the Flames. Ryan Miller brings the experience and the talent between the pipes which we desperately need to stay competitive within our division and the league.

So once Eddie Lack got dealt over Ryan Miller in a deal to Carolina, I dont think I’ve seen so many fans outraged around the team since the Stanley Cup finals riots in Vancouver. We traded a backup goalie for a draft pick, makes complete sense to me. That was followed by the acquisition of Brandon Sutter & Brandon Prust which shore up our 3rd and 4th lines. Zach Kassian never really fit in with the Canucks, 3 different coaches and he was never able to be consistent under any of them and was plagued with injuries this past season and it was time for a change. Nick Bonino was a good centre for the team but Sutter will probably be on either the 2nd or 3rd line depending on where he fits best and he will be vital for the success of the team in the near future.

In conclusion I’d just like to say that Trevor Linden and Jim Benning have done a great job so far running the team and wish we can compete for a Stanley Cup in the very near future.

Go Canucks Go!!!

Jazzy B & Kaur B Concert Review

 

 

 

I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking to the Prince of Bhangra Jaswinder Bains AKA Jazzy B while he was in Edmonton on his Canadian tour.

I had asked my personal friend and local 101.7 World FM Edmonton DJ Patwant Singh if he would like to interview Jazzy and he was thrilled by the opportunity. I then reached out to TrendsterUK, Jazzy’s management team and they were great! They set everything up for us and we broadcasted the interview live on our Periscope account @SB_Periscope and also below on our Youtube channel now.

As for the concert, it started off with the live band which had an amazing sound to it. They were followed by and along with Yugraj who had a great set topped off by Rangla Hassa.

They then moved onto the new queen of Punjabi music Kaur B who was brilliant on the stage, her energy showed and it got the crowd really going. Their werent many people who werent either nodding their heads to the beat, moving their feet or jumping up and down through the aisles. She is a great dancer and it showed, not only singing but moving all over the stage.

Once Jazzy B was introduced the crowd erupted in anticipation, Jazzy is easily one of the best live performers in the Punjabi music industry with his voice and his dance moves. He performed a mix of tracks including the newer ones and obviously the classics we have heard throughout the years.

My highlight of the show definitely had to be Mitran Da Boot performed by Jazzy and Kaur B, the duet sounded perfect. We are used to seeing the Jazzy and Shinda shows through the years but this was definitely one of the best concerts I have seen and brings out a wider audience as the addition of Kaur B gets the older generation and ladies to the show as well.

Seeing the B Jazzy clothing line collection was great, some amazing ideas put onto tshirts and being able to represent Jazzy B. Though they were nearing the end of the tour and their selection of sizes of clothing for each of the items was very limited. You can check out all of his clothing on BJazzy.In

Once again I’d like to thank Jazzy B and his management Trendster UK for the opportunity!
