Vancouver Canucks play the high-flying New York Rangers tonight at Rogers Arena. Canucks beat New York last week. Coming off Sunday’s come from behind victory over Dallas, we’ll see if Vancouver can lead a team for any length of time for a change.
A hotstove item for your discussion tonight:
McKenzie: #Canucks are not trading Chris Tanev, he's their top pairing guy. McKenzie floated Ben Hutton's name out as more likely option.— Grady Sas (@GradySas) November 16, 2016
Even at that, Vancouver would have to clear salary to take on Evander Kane’s deal.
I was defending Willie Desjardins treatment of Jake Virtanen in the comments earlier, but this comment from the coach make him (and me, by extension) look silly:
Desjardins on Virtanen in AHL for 2 days: "When you're on the road, he didn't have any of his stuff. He had to come back & get his stuff."— Canucks Now (@CanucksNow) November 16, 2016
Enjoy the game, everyone. Coconuts Go!
