The Vancouver Canucks hit the ground running on their brutal Central division road swing, taking their final match-up with the St. Louis Blues by a final score of 4-1. It was another step in the right direction for Vancouver as they try and hammer home a playoff berth, and with the Kings losing to the Blackhawks, their chances of making the dance look as good as ever.

The Canucks played a hell of a game. The Kings did not. Vancouver won. I'm not in a good mood. Here's your damn recap. Have fun.

The Blue Jackets came in to Vancouver having been severely outplayed last night against the Edmonton Oilers, so tonight's game should have been a schedule loss. But, as the Canucks were reminded tonight, there's a reason why they play the games. Vancouver came out flying but stumbled thereafter, as the Jackets put six goals in the back of Vancouver's net en route to a disappointing 6-2 final.

On the surface, the answer to the question posed in the headline is a simple "no way," but our thoughts and opinions on this aren't the ones that matter.
As fans, we've all seen the pizza deliveries, the blown coverages, and the own goals this year. In addition to the poor play, Luca Sbisa is on an inconveniently back-loaded contract and will be enormously expensive to qualify this summer. Just retaining his restricted free agents rights with a qualifying offer will force the Vancouver Canucks to commit $2.9 million on a one-year deal (that is unless they take him to arbitration and seek to cut back his salary), which should be a non-starter.
Or it would be a non-starter if stuff like "the Canucks like Sbisa" and "the Canucks see Sbisa as a future top-4 guy" wasn't being floated by those with more insider knowledge than we have. Vancouver, allegedly, believes Sbisa has taken a step forward and media speculation has him coming back next year, pricey RFA deal and all. But are the Canucks wise to think this way? We'll investigate on the other side of the jump.
