It's been a tale of two cities this week with two wildly different games: the 4-1 win against Grabner and the Islanders included a continuation of the #RomeForNorris bandwagon and even a David Booth sighting before the Hawks came to town and flexed their power play muscle en route to a 5-1 win.

Few things get Canucks fans (or hockey fans) happier than beating Chicago, so this week started on a high note with an enjoyable 6-2 beatdown in their barn. Vancouver then swung through California with a brief stop to say 'allo to Willie Mitchell while outlasting the Kings 3-2 before Cory Perry and crew downed the Canucks 4-3 Friday night.

Last week when we chatted the Canucks were running on fumes after two consecutive losses to the Oilers and Blues, the latter being Vancouver's third depressing shutout of the short season. Since then they blew up for 12 goals in two wins over the Caps and Flames before the Wild smacked them back down to earth. Sigh.

Seeing how the inaugural post mentioned Sturm and Samuelsson in the negative and both now find themselves skating for dinner money in Florida, it leaves me to (correctly) assume I have remarkably perceptive powers. Borderline mind control. Not bad for a basement dwelling blogger with a suspiciously low amount of Hot Pockets.
This week we praise one American, wave a nagging finger at #3 and haze the new guy. Hopefully they're still all on the team by Halloween.

A lot can happen during 60 minutes of battle night in and night out, so every week Canucks Army will bring you a quick player assessment: who is are doing well enough that you should slap their names on the back of your $250 jersey, who's been so bad they should be jettisoned down to the Wolves before you reach the end of this sentence and the guys caught in the murky middle, giving you just enough good to make it palatable to ignore the bloody awful.
This week we celebrate two guys who had their own luxury suites in AV's doghouse last season while casting a shameful eye at a pair of slumping wingers (there's a more than slight chance you can guess who one of them is).
