Over the summer, there were a number of rumours flying around connecting the Vancouver Canucks' new General Manager Jim Benning to the Buffalo Sabres’ Tyler Myers.  Why not?  The deal makes sense, at least on the surface.  You have a gigantic right-handed young defencemen that skates well, who could step in with Dan Hamhuis injured, and has the pedigree coming from being a first round pick and a Calder trophy winner only few years ago. 

But is this prospective deal really one that the Canucks should explore? Read past the jump as we delve into the career of Tyler Myers.

That Cole Cassels is having a fantastic 19-year old season is old news by now to Canucks fans. Vancouver's 3rd round pick in the 2013 NHL entry draft is currently 6th in the OHL in scoring with 12 goals and 27 assists in 22 games, but he'll be missing some significant time thanks to a suspension handed out this morning by the Ontario Hockey League.

It’s been another full week of prospect activities with all of Vancouver's players in the pipeline playing games.  The OHL has surprisingly been the least productive this week while Jake Virtanen, players in the NCAA, Europe, and the ECHL have all been very active. The World Juniors will be coming up very shortly and Hockey Canada plans to announce its camp roster soon.  That being said a number of Canucks prospects have been in discussion to make their respective national team including: Horvat (CAN, but unlikely to be released from the Canucks), Virtanen (CAN), McCann (CAN), Subban (CAN), Cassels (US), Forsling (Sweden), and Demko (US).

Without keeping you waiting, continue past the jump for the latest on your Canucks’ prospects.

Canucks Army Postgame: #WinForQuinn

Leading up to tonight's game between the New Jersey Devils and Vancouver Canucks, there was any number of hockey related story lines that could have taken precedence in the hours before puck-drop. Instead, the loss of former Canucks head coach and player Pat Quinn was paramount in our hearts and minds. A time will come for warm reflection, but for today at least the Canucks let us share a human moment and mourn his passing.

Following a chilling moment of silence, fabled Vancouver opera singer Marc Donnelly belted a beautiful rendition of the Irish folk-song, Danny Boy. I know somewhere, in some way, the "Big Irishman" was giving his sideways grin through the entire rendition, cigar in tow.

The Canucks honored the fiery Irishmen's legacy to the tune of a hard fought 2-0 victory. There's not a lot to chew on from tonight's game, but we'll tackle what little there is on the other side of the jump.
