The Canucks, Kings and Blackhawks all suck. My how 6 years can change things. The Canucks go into tonight with the playoffs to far out of sight. I’m calling the season already.
So.....let’s enjoy these games for what they are, a great experiment for young players to try and play in all situations with a variety of teammates. Hopefully they learn to hold on to 3rd period leads and can not have anymore losing streaks longer than 4 games.
The Nashville Predators remind me a lot of the Vancouver Canucks of 7 years ago. What I mean by that is that their time is running out. Their team is fighting a few injuries right now but they are still too much for most teams. And think about this...Nashville’s payroll is only $1.5 million more than the Canucks.
This is what the morning skate looked like

That first line better get their ass back defense.
There are rumors of a Canucks/Hawks trade for Gagner. It doesn’t make sense to me why Chicago would want him, but I hope GMJB gets something good for him. Haaaaa!
Talk about a bad news/good news tweet. Here is it...

Can Pouliot good with Gagner please?
