We're four months deep into the NHL season and the trade deadline is right around the corner. Time flies, I know. By now, it's become clear for most organizations as to whether they'll be buying or selling at the deadline, but there are still a handful of teams that aren't very good but are right in the mix, floating around in some kind of grey area. In this month's check in, I'm going to break down where each team is at as we head into the home stretch, and who should be opting to sell their assets and start focusing on the future, and who should be interested in buying to fuel their playoff aspirations.

Monday Morning Musing: February 8th

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.

With that, here are my Monday Morning Musings for the week that was.

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.

The last couple months has been a little quieter for Canucks prospects than the previous two were. The season started off with the with the organization’s three best non-NHL prospects lighting their respective leagues on fire for two months straight. 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 Canucks face their rivals, the Calgary Flames and will be looking to bounce back from a shootout loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday. The Flames lost to them as well last night so we have something in common. A shameful connection indeed.
