Gamethread #14: Canucks vs Hawks

Old frienemies meet again on this scary night.

NHL: Vancouver Canucks at Chicago Blackhawks Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

Trick or treat everyone!

I really hope to see some injury fairies in the crowd tonight as the Canucks have over $25 million on injured reserve right now. Brandon Sutter joined the group after last game. Separated shoulder could be the case for him. Archie and ......the scariest sight of them all, Brendan Gaunce, got the call to join the big team. The team the Canucks put out there tonight will only have a cap total of $45 million. Young and cheap.

The Blackhawks are going through their own rejuvenation. There are some names on that team that I don’t know like, Kohun, Jokiharju, Rutta and Fortin. But don’t you worry, there are the usual names still driving this team. Kane and Toews have been joined by DeBrincat in helping this team get out to a good start to the year. Corey Crawford has battled back from concussions and is getting into form. The central division is a tough one and the Hawks will need above average performances to get into the playoffs.

I hope everyone has a safe Halloween.

Go Coconuts go!
