We are back this week for your weekly Canucks Army Prospects Report, where we take a look at the week that was for each Canucks prospect. As we enter the middle of January, we are almost halfway through this playing season for Canucks prospects. This means that we can start making pretty decent determinations that their output so far is fairly representative of their true talent level and current usage.
So let's continue past the jump for more!

If you are a regular reader of Canucks Army, you know how much we love our prospects (well, except for Rhys because he hates everything). You'll also remember that every summer, we rank and review the top 20 prospects in Vancouver's system according to our writing staff. With the middle of the Canucks season tomorrow, we've decided to have a look back at how Vancouver's prospects have been performing this year, and do a mid-year re-ranking taking the new information we've learned into account.
But this time, we want you, yes YOU, to participate. Read past the jump to find out how!

When they were young, their future was so bright; the old
core was still alive. And every prospect
in the whole damn club was gonna make it big and not be a bust.
But Tony Gallagher said something the other day that I had to agree with, which is funny since I don’t often find myself agreeing with the man, certain people around here call "Skeletor," very often; mostly because I rarely read any of his work. Needless to say, Gallagher had some concerns on the ice time and development of prospects down in Utica, a similar train of thought I’ve been having since covering the team closely last year.
Let’s dig into it some more shall we!

On Saturday night, the Canucks were scheduled to face the Calgary Flames on prime time on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada. You knew it was going to be full of talent, exciting storylines, goals being traded back and forth and old blood boiling to the surface - what more could a hockey fan ask for? At least, that's how it was supposed to go. Instead, that's not how this game went down and the Canucks found themselves up Schitt's Creek, losing 1-0 to the Calgary Flames.
Continue past the jump for a recap of tonight's loss.

The Comets Militia Weekly Report has returned as we look back at the weekly activities of our favourite AHL club, the Utica Comets. The results of the week were not as good as they have been so far this year, but the underlying process still remains positive. Ultimately that’s what we care about and preach here at Canucks Army; the sustainability of success due to the correct on-ice decisions over results in a small sample size. In the words of Alain Vigneault, "stick to the process."
So let's read past the jump to see what went down!
