Well, yesterday was fun, wasn't it? Okay, that was probably the understatement of the year. Upon hearing that Cody Hodgson was traded, I was in shock for about 15 minutes before accepting his fate. Come on, let's face it, we all knew it might happen. It was just interesting to watch everyone go through the 5 stages of grief over this one trade. Which is why I am sharing the Robot Chicken clip, because most of what I saw was Stage 2 and Stage 4.....
Anyways, the Canucks are in Phoenix tonight, and we'll get to see our new players in action. Samuel Pahlsson will start on the 3rd line with Chris Higgins and Jannik Hansen, while Zack Kassian will start on the 4th with Manny Malhotra and Maxim Lapierre. Marc-Andre Gragnani will not play tonight, while Cory Schneider is in net across from Mike Smith. Phoenix is somehow leading the Pacific Division right now with 73 points, only 2 points ahead of 7th-place San Jose. They will be looking to keep their division seed in order to stay out of that close race for a playoff spot.
