Five Days To Go...

...and here's where we stand with the Canucks.

1. Cody Hodgson and Eddie Lack are still with the team for financial reasons (if you're a cap sleuth, then you know the devil is in the details). Both are probable to be heading to Manitoba sometime tomorrow along with perhaps Cory Schneider in another money-saving move.

2. As reported yesterday, Joel Perrault is on waivers and likely heading to Manitoba too. His one-way deal means the Moose pick up his salary.

3. Unless the brass does a 180 on Hodgson, that leaves the final roster spot up front up for grabs between Jeff Tambellini and Peter Schaefer. Again, a decision likely today or tomorrow. UPDATE: Tambellini hits the waivers. Odd considering his preseason play. No word yet on Schaefer.

4. On the back-end - and as discussed in the comments yesterday - AV has opted to open the season with Bieksa and Hamhuis as the top defensive pairing. So for now Saturday night's roster looks like:

Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Mikael Samuelsson

Mason Raymond - Ryan Kesler - Raffi Torres

Jannik Hansen - Manny MalhotraSchaefer

Tanner Glass - Alexandre Bolduc -Guillaume Desbiens

 

Kevin Bieksa - Dan Hamhuis

Christian Ehrhoff - Alexander Edler

Andrew Alberts - Keith Ballard

 

Roberto Luongo

Cory Schneider

5. Last, but not least, there's no update on Bob's groin but nothing to suggest he won't be ready to go.
