Grabner Re-assigned To Manitoba, Demitra Going Home

Mike Gillis has announced today that the Canucks have re-assigned Michael Grabner to the Moose. This is reportedly a conditioning stint. Grabner has 2 goals and 5 points in 9 games with the Canucks this season, before he wrecked his ankle playing soccer in a pre game warm-up several weeks ago.

Pavol Demitra is returning to his homeland of Slovakia to see a specialist "that he is comfortable with" about his ailing shoulder. 

"He had this massage therapist guy who works with the Slovakian national team and he said the massage therapy helped him out a lot," Mike Gillis said today. "So, he asked if he could do that and we said yes."

It has me wondering if there is something wrong with our medical staff. See: Cody Hodgson.

Was that a great game last night or what? That had the feeling of a playoff game. It made my current headache worth it.

I'm not going to recap the game, but I will say this: Great effort by the Canucks after crapping the bed against the Ducks. They can beat any NHL team when they play like that. Random: A big hat-tip to Aaron Rome, who played so well and really deserves a spot on the Canucks' roster.

Oh, and I'd never forget this guy:
