Welcome to a new feature here on Canucks Army and all sites on the Nation Network: What Would You Do Wednesday, where we put you, yes YOU, in charge of your own imaginary Vancouver Canucks. We'll present you with a different scenario each week, and you tell us how you'd solve it in the comments section below. Give props to the answers you do like and trash the ones you don't. Easy! We're back this week after a short hiatus, so let's get started:

The Phoenix Coyotes came in to tonight's tilt against the Canucks having lost three games in a row, sitting dead last in the Western Conference, tired from playing last night, sporting some of the worst underlying metrics in the entire NHL, and playing their backup goalie who hadn't been able to give them a save all season.
So of course Martin Hanzal found a way to destroy the Canucks defense, and of course Devan Dubnyk found a way to shut them out too, en route to a 5-0 Arizona Coyotes win. Read past the jump for a recap.

Vancouver is back in action tonight, playing an Arizona Coyotes team that has struggled on the year, and lost 3 games in a row, including one last night. Radim Vrbata will return to the Canucks lineup to take on his former teammates, and the Canucks will be looking to re-take the lead in the overall NHL standings.

The Arizona Coyotes are in town to face the Vancouver Canucks tonight, and in order to make room permanent for one of their top young players in Brandon Gormley, they have placed defenseman David Schlemko on waivers.

We've been fans of acquiring Schlemko for a while now, and the fact that he's available for literally nothing but cap dollars is pretty enticing. Read past the jump for three reasons why the Canucks should make a waiver claim for David Schlemko.

Vancouver entered Tuesday night's showdown with the Ottawa Senators just two points out of a tie for 1st in the NHL, which is a position that basically no one expected them to be in at the start of the year. The Sedins, as we've come to expect over the years, came to play, and they lit the Sens up for two goals, including the overtime winner in a 4-3 victory.
Read past the jump for a (late) recap.
