The Utica Comets are back for the weekly Comets Militia report on all the activities relating to the Canucks American Hockey League affiliate.  It has not been the best week for the Comets; despite controlling both games and looking like they would walk away with 4 points, their opponents were able to beat them at the last second.

With World Junior Championship pre-tournament action just one day away, the Vancouver Canucks are likely to have a handful of prospects representing their various countries. It's always interesting to look back at the success (or lack there of) of current players at previous World Junior Championships.  Though the WJCs host the world's best Under-20 year old players, countries don’t necessarily send the best players, but rather the best–available players.  Late bloomers may never even be considered for their world junior roster while many players may peak as a U20 player and never see a higher level.

With that being said, let's have a look back at current Canucks who have played in a World Junior Championship.

Canucks Army Postgame: That Could Have Gone Better

Leading up to today's game, there were a number of exciting storylines to pay attention to: the Canucks winning-est coach Alain Vignault was returning to Vancouver; the Canucks were not able to beat the Rangers in two matchups last year; they've just returned home after a 7 game road trip seeing them lose the last 3 games; Derek Dorsett having his first child; new baby pictures of Prince George; and Rhys actually trusting me to watch this game and to write about it (there was no other viable option). 

Of course, this game did not go nearly as well as planned as the Canucks lost 5-1 after a staggering number of defensive lapses and odd-man rushes.

Read past the jump for tonight's recap of the game.

Death, Taxes and Cory Conacher on waivers.  For whatever reason, Cory Conacher has seemed like a promising young player, but can never stay with a team for long.  Having moved from Ottawa, Buffalo, Tampa and New York Islanders, Conacher is back on waivers again.  This makes us ask if the Canucks should put a claim on him, and if he would fit with the Canucks?
