Just a few random thoughts while I dream of a stanley cup in Vancouver and cozy up inside after a dump of snow
- The Canucks have a major decision to make in the near future with the possible return of Sami Salo. Upon his return, the Canucks will need to get rid of roughly one milllion dollars in salary. At the beginning of the season, the popular view would have been to trade Kevin Bieksa, but with his improved defence how can you? I would like to see the Canucks trade Raymond for a first round pick. Raymond did well against the Isles last night, including this goal in the shootout. However, Jannick Hansen has proven he is capable of playing on the second line and Mikael Samuelsson can be effective at times as well.
- Congratulations to Alain Vigneault, Henrik and Daniel Sedin and Ryan Kesler for making the all-star team. Represent our team well at the game and have fun, you deserve the honor
- Just looking at the schedule for the rest of the month and I think the Canucks should be able to get 12 of 16 points. The only tough tests are Friday vs. the Capitals and the 20th vs. the Sharks. They play The Rangers tomorrow night (beateable), and the Avs, Wild and Flames next week. We've simply dominated against the NW division this year. The Stars and the Pedators are the other teams we face and with the stea we're on, I can't see us losing against either of these teams
