Road-weary Canucks getting help from sleep researchers?

From HockeyExpressen:
There is no official travel statistics in the NHL, but a statistician linked to the league itself has figured out how much the (teams are) traveling in a season. Vancouver is in the top of the travel league, and when the season over of the team will have logged 8 000 mil - two revolutions around the earth. The closest away game is Calgary as the crow flies is 67 mil away. Longest trip this season as the team goes directly to New York for the meeting with the Islanders on November 17, a small neat trip of 392 mil.
The club has been using the Vancouver company Global fatigue management performing the tests and then to give the players advice along the results.
"It will be exciting to see, " said Daniel Sedin.


I was unaware of this. The Canucks are carrying some kind of clock gadget with them that monitors light sleep and deep sleep if I'm reading that Swedish translation right. They should put one of those on Pyatt while he's on the ice. I swear he's comatose sometimes. OK, I kid.
Hope you found it interesting. I was actually looking for any Sundin news and all I got is that he still brushes his teeth in the morning and scratches his ass when it itches.
