I Watched This Game: Canucks vs. Phoenix Coyotoes

Harrison Mooney with a great point following the Canucks loss to Phoenix: “In 2010, the Canucks were blown out by a Central Division team then went on to face the Phoenix Coyotes in their next game. They played much better, but still lost…and immediately went on a run that culminated in a Stanley Cup Final appearance!”

Canucks get much needed three day break

The Canucks have played seven games in 12 days including four on the road, Sean Larson of Nucks Misconduct says the Canucks will benefit from some time off before LA comes to town on Saturday.

The Canucks against teams outside the Northwest

Cam Charron says that while the Canucks benefit from a healthy dose of Northwest division opponents, they are still an elite club and has the numbers to prove it.

Realignment would favour time-zone groupings

There have been rumblings of a new divisional realignment coming to the NHL as early as next seasons. Bruce Arthur fills us in.

Anatomy of a Deal

After getting cut by Steve Spott’s Team Canada World Junior squad, Frank Corrado was traded to the very club Spott coaches, the Kitchener Rangers. Josh Brown of the Kitchener Record tells us how the strange turn of events occurred.

Rapid Fire

- Brendan Gaunce will move over the 50 point plateau with a point tonight, as his Belleville Bulls face Brampton. There’s a good chance of that happening; Gaunce has 14 points in 11 games this month.

- Nicklas Jensen and Henrik Tommernes were both held off the score sheet as both their club's picked up wins on Wednesday.
