Emerson Etem knows he can help the Vancouver Canucks in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
He’s been there and has an impressive post-season track record to prove
it. The bigger issue right now is can he help the Canucks get into the
playoffs? Without a surge over the final 28 games, Etem and the Canucks will be
on the outside looking in when the run for the Cup begins. And that’s not a
position the 23-year-old winger has been in before during his brief National
Hockey League career.

The Vancouver Canucks - and the rest of the league, for that matter - have been presented with the rarest of opportunities, as Valeri Nichushkin of the Dallas Stars is apparently available for the right price.
Mike suggests Nichushkin on the table for the right return in Dallas. https://t.co/gwgimrQKZV— Craig Custance (@CraigCustance) February 10, 2016
Mike Heika of Dallas News brought to light Nichushkin's availability, suggesting that the Stars could float their budding winger for a 'big fish' acquisition on the trade market. The Stars, who are rumoured to be looking to add depth on their blue line, are reasonably seeing their young stable of electric forwards as the requisite surplus to make such a move happen.

The Comets went on a road trip last weekend. Road trips can be a ton of fun, a great bonding experience full of joy, comradery, and memories that can last a life time. They can also be to Newfoundland. The Comets went to Newfoundland.
They did still manage to find joy however, winning both games on the rock, leaving them on a nifty four game winning streak. They even got a little board in the final game and decided to make things interested, leading to a gorgeous comeback goal and a Canucks prospect entering the AHL record books.
