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.

As the season trudges forward towards the trade deadline, my neutral zone data set increases in kind. Yesterday I was able to synthesize the Vancouver Canucks zone entry data through the month of November, to show the impact made by each player through the neutral zone.

To make room for the return of Dan Hamhuis for tomorrow's tilt against the Calgary Flames, it was announced that the Vancouver Canucks placed Yannick Weber on waivers this morning. Weber hasn't played a game since January 14th, he has appeared in 35 games this year for the Canucks where he has 5 assists.
Weber hasn't been the same defenceman he was last year, where he had 11 goals. But he is still a serviceable NHL defenceman who can provide depth for a team. So, why was it Weber making his way to the waiver wire this morning?

In an effort to draw attention away from the current product, the Canucks are invoking visions of old by donning the "Flying Skate" jersey next Saturday when they play host to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
That jersey has always held a special place in the hearts of Canucks fans. It signifies the prosperous years of the nineties and immediately conjures memories of all-time greats like Pavel Bure, Trevor Linden and Kirk McLean.
So, I asked the Canucks Army writers, which jersey and or logo was their favourite...
