Canucks Army Midterm Prospect Rankings: 6th & 5th

That's Offside!
February 11 2015 04:30PM

Here at Canucks Army, we love three things more than anything in the world: prospects, prospect rankings, and whining about prospect rankings.  Every summer we vote on and rank the top-20 Canucks prospects to take stock of what's in the system, and every summer we hear vocal complaints from our readers they disagree with our rankings.

So this year, in our mid-term ranking, we gave you the chance to vote on prospects and have a say on these players.  Since our summer rankings, we've simplified the definition of "prospect" to any player in the Vancouver Canucks' system that is eligible for the Calder Trophy if they were to play in the NHL this year.  This means that players like Linden Vey and Joacim Eriksson who were not rated over the summer will be covered in this series.

Without further adieu, here are the Canucks prospects that were rated 6th and 5th.

Canucks Army GDT #53 - Canucks @ Blackhawks

That's Offside!
February 11 2015 02:30PM

The Vancouver Canucks visit the once reviled Chicago Blackhawks to finish up their short two-game road swing. The Hawks are just 5-4-1 in their past 10 games, but they still have the NHL's best goal differential and are atop the puck possession standings once again. On the other hand, Vancouver will play without their second and third line centres, as well as two key penalty killers.

It will be a tough task to get a win tonight and continue to hold off the Minnesota Wild and Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference playoff race. Read past the jump for a preview.

Canucks Army GDT #51 - Canucks vs. Penguins

That's Offside!
February 07 2015 01:24PM

After dropping their last game by a disappointing 5-1 score to the San Jose Sharks, the Vancouver Canucks wrap up their home stand tonight against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Pens enter the night having won two games in a row and sitting atop the Metropolitan division, but their lead is tenuous at best, so they'll surely be motivated to put forth a strong effort tonight.
