Volpatti and Oreskevitch on hot seat?

Much of the talk coming out of training camp and three pre-season games thus far has centred on the Canuck's need to add grit to protect an already talented line-up.  Candidates such as Pinizzotto, Mancari, Duco, Fedoruk and Clackson (amongst others) are being looked at as the needed protection for the Sedins against the likes of Brad Marchand.  Let's not forget that there are two incumbents for that job, Victor Oreskevitch and Aaron Volpatti.  In my opinion these two had their opportunity to win the roster spot last year and signally failed to do so.  I believe that Oreskevitch was even on the ice when Marchand infamously punched Daniel Sedin six times without retribution.  As I see it, that roster spot is up for grabs and I hope that whoever fills it has the requisite "grit" and attitude but I also hope that he can play a little hockey too as I am one of those softies who prefers hockey to fighting.
