With all the cuts that happened, and the injuries as well the Canucks will now ice "quite a few veterans" against the Ducks, according to Alain Vigneault. He will do so for 2 of the final 3 Canucks preseason games. Oh and speaking of injuries: Aaron Rome will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken finger (FUUUUUUUUUUU). Nolan Baumgartner a month with a broken foot. Steve (pass the) Pinizzotto out indefinitely with a shoulder injury. Niklas Jensen will now get some playing time with vet Canucks after wowing the hell out of Vigneault so far. Looking forward to that.
So WHO will the Canucks dress against the Ducks? Not much word on that, except Vigneault confirmed in a press conference today that Roberto Luongo, the Sedins and Dan Hamhuis will play. Perhaps Sami Salo and Kevin Bieksa as well, speculates Joey "Not Kristin Reid" Kenward. How about Cody Hodgson on the PP with the Sedins? Will we see it? Maybe Jensen? Maybe a revolving door.
