After a few days off to rest and reflect on the embarrassing 5-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday night, the Canucks are finally back in action to take on the Dallas Stars in the second game of their four game pre-Christmas home stand. After being atop the NHL standings less than two weeks ago, their short 4-game losing skid has dropped the Canucks to within just two points of the final playoff spot in the West.

For some of you, getting your report card was one of the most exciting times of the year. If your grades were good, maybe your parents would give you a little extra allowance to spend, or let you get that video game you wanted. For others, report card time was a tangled mess of gut-wrenching nervousness and oh my god Mr. Smith gave me a C- in English MY PARENTS ARE GOING TO KILL ME.
Either way, welcome to the Canucks Army Weekly Player Grades, where we'll take all that repressed childhood anxiety, bottle it back up, and apply it to your (presumably) favourite hockey team instead.
