I'm of the belief that even the most inconsequential of transactions, events and whatever you may have leaguewide affects every team, at every level, to some extent. Newton's law and so on.

With that in mind, there just simply isn't enough time or resources to give them all the attention they deserve in this space. Ideally, though, one can scratch the surface of these events - linked directly to the Vancouver Canucks or otherwise - and examine their far-reaching impact to Roger's Arena and beyond.

I started the Prospects Three Stars of the Month back in late November - covering both October and November - with the intention of making it a monthly feature. However, things in real life got so overwhelmingly busy that my December edition was out on hiatus. So here we are, once again doing a two-for-one article, this time for December and January.

Since then, Thatcher Demko has come back to Earth a little and though Hunter Shinkaruk has continued to pile up assists, his goal scoring rate has diminished a fair bit. Brock Boeser, on the other hand, continues to improve.

Let’s check out which Canucks prospects demanded the spotlight in December and January.

If you're a diehard hockey fan, you may have watched the rest of the games today with Ron Maclean telling you about stories of the Kamloops Blazers and I mean, who cares about Kamloops?

The Flames lost to them as well last night so we have something in common. A shameful connection indeed.

They're back! The Canucks returned from the All Star break last night and lost to Tortorella and his Blue Jackets, who are bad at hockey but great at Twitter! Read their best from Thursday night, look at some liquified turkey, and find out which Canuck is trying to look like a handsome nerd - all past the jump!
