Is Matt Bartkowski a Good Fit in Vancouver?

That's Offside!
January 29 2015 11:00AM

Given all the chatter surrounding the Canucks and Bruins making a potential deal, it seems like a foregone conclusion that something is going to happen between these two teams before the trade deadline. We know that Canucks management isn't a fan of Zack Kassian, we know that Vancouver needs help on their left side D, and we know that Boston Bruins left side D Matt Bartkowski has been struggling for ice time in Boston and has ties to the Canucks organization. Putting two and two together, it seems like the heavy flirting between the Canucks and Bruins will eventually amount to a Kassian-for-Bartkowski swap, perhaps with some other stuff thrown in.

January 27 2015 02:10PM


The All-Star break is officially over, and the Vancouver Canucks will be back in action tonight to face Ryan Kesler and the NHL-leading Anaheim Ducks, kicking off a six-game home stand. The visitors from Orange County come in red hot, having won five games in a row, and have owned the Canucks of late, going 8-1-1 against their Pacific division rivals.

All three games between these two teams this season have gone to overtime though, so it's been a tightly contested series. The Canucks hope that continues tonight, as they look to distance themselves from the 4th and 5th place Flames and Kings in the Pacific.
