The Canucks are now two pre-season games deep, with another coming tonight, and they've also made a number of cuts to their current roster. Some have been sent to Utica, while others to their junior franchises and some interesting names have emerged from the group. Players like Jordan Subban and Michael Carcone draw some initial eyebrow raises, but it's the nature of the business this time of the year. With that in mind, I asked our writers this week who they wish the Canucks had kept around a little longer.

Training Camp is upon us in Whistler, and next week pre-season action will be getting started as we gear up for the NHL campaign. With that in mind, this time of year is a crucial time to take a look at who the Canucks have prospect-wise, and also how their PTO's will turn out, as well as having a look at the core of the team and seeing how they perform. With that in mind, I asked our writers who they are most excited about watching in training camp/pre-season. Answers after the jump!

Like it or not, the controversial tournament that is the World Cup of Hockey is about to take over your airwaves and your national pride for the next month or so. Pre-tournament games started yesterday, and if the early games (aka not the NA/Europe game) are any indication, the level of energy and physicality might surpass the low expectations that most fans have cast upon this event. Sweden and Canada go in as the favourites from both groups, but the newly formed under-23 North American squad, the powerhouse Americans and the always explosive Russians will surely give those squads a run for their money. Finland, the Czechs and a rest of Europe squad round out the tournament, and we can only hope as fans that they put on a show before we get to the NHL season. In the roundtable, we kept it simple. See more after the jump!

September has hit the city of Vancouver like a semi-truck, but all that means is we are closer and closer to the NHL campaign. This time of year, all the pre-season lists and predictions hit the blog-o-sphere and posts get sent out that people try to forget by season's end. Every season it happens too, a team that was supposed to be great isn't and a team that was supposed to disappoint does the opposite. Colorado, a couple years back and Philadelphia last year come to mind as examples for the latter. This week, I took it to our writers to see who they think is the NHL's dark horse this season.
