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.

The Canucks play their first home game since returning from a 3-3-1 road trip tonight as Alain Vigneault brings his New York Rangers to town. AV's club isn't as dangerous as the squad that won the East just earlier this calendar year, but the lights-out play of Rick Nash has helped mask their deficiencies somewhat.
What's more is that the rest of the Pacific division has quietly begun to reel in the Canucks, so tonight's two points are crucial for getting back on track. Read past the jump for a preview.

Well, the good news is that no one is going to remember tonight's game, especially after the wonderful ceremony honouring Jean Beliveau held pre-game. The bad news is that just after a poor showing coughing up a 3-0 lead to the Ottawa Senators on Sunday, the Canucks somehow managed to be worse tonight, losing 3-1 to the Montreal Canadiens.

Vancouver is in Montreal this afternoon to finish up their 7-game Eastern road swing against the slumping Canadiens, who have dropped 3 games in a row and lost 7 of their last 10. More notably however, it will be an emotional night as Montreal is playing their first home game since the passing of Habs legend Jean Beliveau.
